Coming Soon: MAC ‘A Fantasy of Flowers’ Spring 2014 Collection

Not sure if you’ve seen the upcoming MAC ‘A Fantasy of Flowers’ collection or what you think of it. I, for one, have and cannot wait for the March international release! I have already sussed out what I’d like to try and should now start saving towards that, I suppose. In fact, I think I’ll put myself on a little ‘spending ban’ this month – in view of what’s to come…

Here’s an overview of the collection:

Mineralize Eye Shadow Quads ($21)

  • In The Meadow: Icy shimmering white, dirty olive green, golden mint green & pale yellow

There’s also the Haute and Naughty Lash in Black ($21) and three brushes:

  • 159 Duo Fibre Blush Brush ($35)
  • 187 Duo Fibre Face Brush ($42)

The whole of the collection is bright & lovely really, but some colors just don’t work for me – so I think I’ll stick with my tried-and-tested hues this time around. Here’s my favorite, to-buy items:

From left to right: Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad in ‘Pink Sensibilities’ & ‘In the Meadow’, Fluidline in ‘Phlox Garden’, Mineralize Blush in ‘Petal Flower’, Lipstick in ‘Naked Bud’, Cremesheen Glass in ‘Flare For Fantasy’ & ‘Galaxy Rose’, Nail Lacquer in ‘Soiree’.
