Mac Heavenly Creatures Haul

Ok, so here is what I got from Mac’s Heavenly Creatures collection for fall 2012.  This is their mineral collection.  I was a little disappointed with the eyeshadows except for Magnetic Attraction which will make it into my July favorites.  Did you pick anything up?  I’d love to hear:)

Mac Heavenly Creatures Haul and Swatches

Mac has launches their Fall 2012 mineral collection, Heavenly Creatures.  It seems a little early for fall collections, especially given the heat wave we have been under,  but alas, here it is.  Get ready for fall.

I picked up a few things from the collection including eyeshadows, a blush, a mineralized skin finish, lipstick and lipglasses.  Its a large collection so my haul was small when compared to the offerings.

I got four eyeshadows, but I was disappointed in two of them.  Sky, the blue shadow, fell a little flat in my opinion.  Also, Universal Appeal was a disappointment.  I was expecting more purple, but when swatched its just brown:(  That’s the problem with mineralized eyeshadows.  They look beautiful in the pan, but sometimes they don’t swatch well.    Magnetic Attraction is beautiful in the pan and swatched.  Aurora is a brown, but you can still pick up a hint of the peach undertones.  Its a pretty shadow as well, especially when used wet.

They are offering four Mineralized Skin Finishes. I picked up the one in Light Year.  Its a pretty peachy pink with gold micro glitter.  Unfortunately I had an allergic reaction to it. For those of you who can use it, it is very pretty.  This one did accentuate  pores on my cheeks.

I picked up one of the blushes, Ring of Saturn.  Its a pretty red color that gives you a bit of a sunburned look.

I also picked up 2 lipsticks, Cut the Caper and Fire Sign.  Cut the Caper is a repromote.  Its an orangy coral.  It has a luster finish.

Fire Sign is a beautiful pinky red.  It has lustre finish.

To go with Cut the Caper lipstick, I picked up Meteoric Cremesheen Glass.  Its a pretty coral lipgloss with orange shimmer.  Like all Cremesheen Glasses, it is sticky.

I also picked up Galaxy Rose Cremesheen Glass to go with Fire Sign lipstick.  Its a beautiful pinky red.  It is sticky as well.

So that is it for my Mac Heavenly Creatures haul. Did you pick up anything?
