Shopping at MAC

So last week, we saw the release of the new collection from MAC and after having my reader full of posts about it, I thought it only right to pop on over and have a nosey for myself.

There were lots that I thought I wanted, but I'm quite funny about buying make-up online-unless I've seen it in real life, I'm a little dubious about online swatches, so I was well behaved and only treated myself to 3 things, and only one of them from the new Venomous Villains collection.

I got a lipglass from the Cruella collection in 'Devilishly Stylish' - I'm not a lipstick person *gasp*, my lips are always so dry, lipstick just looks silly on me, so I use a lot of lipgloss and after seeing lots of swatches of this on blogs, I decided it was a gorgeous nude colour and it was definitely for me.

If I'm honest, I'm not that keen on the packaging-it looks like I've raided a little girls make up bag, but the product is lovely enough so it doesn't really matter.

Second thing I purchased was Ladyblush Blushcreme. I have wanted a cream blusher for quite some time now and really want to try the Illamasqua cream blushers, but whilst I was on MAC, I decided to give one a try.

It's a lovely cool pink toned blush and I have been applying it with my sonia kashuk flat top brush-any other recommendations on brushed to use with a cream blusher??

And the final product-as I said above, my lips don't take well to lipstick so I was unable to get in on the whole Lady Gaga/Cindy Lauper craze a few months back, well that was until now! MAC have now brought out these 2 lipsticks, in lipglass form-yey for me! I couldn't resist picking up the Lady Gaga lipglass-it's a gorgeous bright bubblegum pink (a little too pink for my liking,but once blended in on my lips-I love it)!

May have to get myself a back up of this :-)

L-R: Ladyblush, Lady Gaga Lipglass, Devilishly Stylish Lipglass

Did you buy anything from the VV collection that you'd recommend? I really want to try the beauty powders but I've never used one before so really need to try it out before I part with my dosh!
