MAC Graphic Garden

Graphic Garden collection came out last week in Canada, and this week in the US. I pre-ordered the Graphic Garden palette and Sweet Tease Look in a Box:

The palette has a floral design:

If you move the palette around the cover image changes to a repeating MAC logo:

Here's a closeup of the colours in the paletteand. I think they are gorgeous and pigmentation isn't too bad (not amazing like UD but better than most of MAC's holiday palettes)

I found the brush when washed had a chemical smell, but was ok when dry. I hope it goes away though! No swatches of the other products yet but I do have a look from yesterday using the Shell Pearl Beauty powder and Graphic Garden palette. The beauty powder is really sheer though so it may not even show up on camera when swatched. Its a faint pink colour + gold sheen, so it works best as a highlighter.


Shell Pearl as highlight, with Everday Minerals Soft Touch blush and MAC Emote to contour:

I used the silver, green and blue colours from the palette:

I picked up the Sweet Tease look in a box too! I was looking at both palettes but I'm still a bit on the fence about them... might pick up the pink one as I think I'd use it more than the one with blues/greens.

Oh pretty! I didn't know we could get Graphic Garden in Canada (thought it was Norstrom exclusive). Where did you get it from?

Askmewhats said...

now I can't even imagine when will this be available down here :)

such nice FOTD and your cheeks are glowing!

Beauty Savvy said...

Oh MY! How much was this? I didn't think we would get this release since I had read somewhere that it's a Nordstrom exclusive.

I had my sights set on Sun Siren, but I'm LOVING Shell Pearl on you!

the palette colors looks beautiful on you! the Look in a Box looks pretty good, but I think I'm going to skipping out on MAC for a while... if I was ever really not skipping MAC collections anyway..
