Haul: MAC Semi-Precious, Lady Gaga

Saturday, 16 July 2011
Hiya,

I don't usually make a habit of buying products from MAC's latest collection but when something catches my eye, I have to get it. That is exactly what happened when I saw the Semi-Precious Collection a couple of weeks ago. I had initially planned on getting the products I wanted from the Debenhams website but they were out of stock on some things so I ordered from the MAC website instead.

I got two things from the Semi-Precious Collection and two which are normally available at MAC.

The main thing I wanted was the 'Gem of Roses' lipstick which looked absolutely gorgeous to me. I have to say it definitely met my expectations. I'm loving it!

I also purchased the mineralized eyeshadow in 'Blue Moon'.


How beautiful is this shade? It would look gorgeous on the outer corner/crease.

Strangely (for most), I never started with eye shadows when it came to MAC. I don't find them to be better than other brands like Urban Decay or even Sleek. I have however, been wanting to get 'Ricepaper' for the longest time.


I'm definitely glad I got this because it is such a pretty highlight shade.

Lastly, I picked up the Lady Gaga II lipstick which has been on my list of things to buy for a long time.

Most nudes don't suit my skin tone but this one is slightly darker than others and I find that topped with a sheer lip gloss, it looks really pretty. I'm glad I ended up investing in it as I was a little worried it would be a waste at first.

All in all, I'm really happy with my purchases; they are all products I will use a lot.

Have you tried anything from the Semi-Precious Collection? Are you excited about any upcoming collections?

  15. I've just written 2 reviews of Semi-precious blushes and skinfinishes. They are absolutely adorable, but the when I look at them I feel they herald the coming of autumn. It's weird that the company decided to promote such shades now!
