This post has been delayed for ages! I took the product pictures last month but didn't get to do proper swatches until now.
Liberty of London was the only collection I felt like buying in 2010 so far. The reason should be a no brainer for long-time readers - because of the pretty packaging! :P Of course I don't usually *just* buy it for the packaging but also if the product is good as well.
The eyeshadows I got were Birds & Berries, and Dame's Desire.
I also picked up the Prim & Proper blush:
It seems like everyone picked up the Shell Pearl Beauty Powder but since I had gotten it last year with the Look in the Box sets I skipped it despite the much better packaging. It is a lovely highlighter though a touch too frosty for my taste.
As for lipsticks I got Peachstock and Ever Hip.
I really like the design of the lipsticks, they have the best design I've seen since I started collecting MAC in mid-2007. No cheap stickers, silly leopard prints, or neon orange packaging :P
Even the boxes for the products are quite well done. They have flower prints inside the box, and the outside has Liberty of London for MAC in gold lettering.
Top to bottom:
Birds & Berries - blue-grey pearl
Dame's Desire - warm violet
Prim & Proper - warm peach, reminds me of the Hello Kitty Fun & Games blush
Top to bottom:
Prim & Proper again
Peachstock - light tan with a matte finish
Ever Hip - semi-sheer coral with a creamy finish
I haven't really worn these products much but here is a simple one with the eyeshadows:
- UDPP to prime
- Birds & Berries on outer corner
- Electra on middle of lid
- ELF Pink Ice to highlight brow and on inner corner
- Dame's Desire to line outer lower lash line
- The usual liner and mascara
Did you get anything from this collection? Why or why not?
Oh and it looks like I'm almost at 500 followers! Will do a giveaway once I hit that number :D
