On Friday morning, the MAC Cinderella collection was finally released in the UK, and unsurprisingly, it sold out within 20 minutes. I was really hoping it wouldn't release on Friday with it being the one day of the week that I wasn't in front of my computer as I was attending my part time advertising course at a local London University and was spending the whole day in the classroom.


Luckily for me, I'd given my Partner 'M' the heads up the day before that the collection was being released. As soon as I received a text message from April telling me it had gone live, I began manically texting M, hoping my tutor sat across the table from me wouldn't notice. The boy did good, and I ended up with 4 of the products I was wishing for from the range.

MAC Iridescent Powder - £23.00
From the images alone, I knew I had to have this gorgeous metallic powder. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works with my skin tone. I have a feeling it's going to make for a beautiful pink glistening finishing powder on the cheeks.

L-R Free As A Bird & Royal Ball- £17.00 Each 
The things I can never have enough of in my make up collection, are Pink & Nude lipsticks. I have to admit, I don't actually own any MAC Lustre lipsticks and wanting to add a few to my collection, I jumped straight in. I'm obsessed with a soft lip, and the Royal Ball lipstick was my first choice. It's a beautiful frosted pink shade. The other lipstick in the range is Free As A Bird which is more of a golden nude shade.

Cinderella Glitter - Reflects Pearl - £18.50
Glitter, oh how I both love and loathe it at the same time. I love a good sparkly eye, but I absolutely hate how much mess it makes. There's nothing that fills me with a sense of dread more, than the thought of a bottle of glitter erupting in my make up bag and having to clean it up for the next few months. Glitter fears aside, I wanted to push myself and try something new, so I added the Reflects Pearl Glitter onto my wish list. I have absolutely no idea how i'm going to wear it - and it's worth pointing out that the glitter isn't eye safe, so beats me what i'll use it for.


So those are my selects from the MAC Cinderella collection! Did you manage to get your hands on anything before it sold out online? Don't despair too much, as it actually hits the MAC Stores and Counters on 13th March, so there's still time to pick up a few bits before you resort to overpriced items on Ebay. 

As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts, let me know in the comments.

  2. I think out of everything, that highlight/finishing powder is the one I want the most, and maybe the darker of the lipsticks. Great post! Congrats on getting your hands on what you got :)

  7. Lovely haul! Ah I was watching my emails like a hawk for this collection but was at work by the time it launched so had no chance. Sad times. I love the look of that blush, but didn't know the glitter wasn't eye safe that's a bit strange to me! xx

  13. This post has made me way to excited for when my delivery arrives! Just seeing the lipsticks makes me swoon, I also have never tried any lustre finishes before so I'm hoping that I actually like the finish!

  19. Ah everything looks so stunning! Wish my boyfriend would do that! He'd be absolutely clueless if I asked him to get me make up... I asked him to pick up a Soap & Glory giftset for my Mum as he was in town and I was at work and he couldn't even do that, haha!

  23. You can get these beauties for hourly meetings or night stands or even for long stays. We can say that Dubai is now almost a heaven for the pleasure seekers, who have come there for the matter of fulfilling their sexual cravings.
