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.
MAC Royal Ball Lipstick £17.00
MAC Free As A Bird Lipstick £17.00
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.
