Oh, yes, much belated Warm&Cozy and Love Lace haul, I know, but blame my MAC counter that only brought these in last week!
This is mainly why I don't do these MAC "new collections" haul type posts - here in Greece we always get everything light years after the rest of the world (not to mention in almost double the price, but that's another story) and I 'm sure that for most of you that are already shopping the most recent collections, my slightly outdated MAC hauls can be a bit boring...!
Nevertheless, this is what I purchased from those two collections:
Now, except from Raven kohl power pencil, none of the rest had caught my eye when I first learned about their release - I didn't take as much as a second look at the Love Lace eyeshadows, and I thought that the Warm&Cozy ones looked very dupable.
But as I kept looking at swatches and blog posts, I did a total 180.
Raven kohl power pencil. Gorgeous dark burgundy shade, this is the only one that didn't fail me when I swatched it (call me "Sense of Style"). The shimmer in it is very fine and doesn't stand out. I believe this is an older repromote (Starflash maybe?), but in any case, this is one that should be permanent.
Fascinating eye kohl. Now you 'll laugh because I didn't know that this was part of the Love Lace collection up until I walked in the store. I was just looking for a white pencil for my waterline and this one does the trick - easy to apply, makes my eyes look awake in 2 seconds.
But that's also what I go for 90% of the time anyways, so I figured that these ones (unlike other LE eyeshadows) would get a lot of use from me. I also don't own any matte or satin neutrals, so this was the perfect excuse!
And to be quite honest, this could easily become my go-to quad, it's great for daytime looks, as well as the more dramatic ones...
And voila - my simple daytime look:
So, do let me know, did you shop from these collections, and what?
And what are your favourite looks with those items? :)
