I’ll just do a short post, as due to the popularity of MAC I am sure these items have been featured in lots of other blogs. I had a really nice time in the MAC freestanding store and it was all down to the SA. This is the first time I have felt that I have been greeted with someone who seemed a professional artist, there was no attempt to hard sell me stuff, all he did was show me different ways to use the shades and recommended certain colours that would best suit me. It was such a novel experience which is a shame given the amount of times I frequent cosmetic counters.
I got the smoke and mirrors eye palette, very easy to wear shades (only spell No.9 is a bit too warm so I don’t wear this as a lid shade), I don’t think MAC offer the best texture eyeshadows but the only texture I am not too keen on in this palette is Deception as it seems dryer than the others.
I got the Mineralized duo in under your spell, I had heard the crescent shades were a rough,gritty texture so bought this for the other shade, which is a beautifully smooth and pigmented super shimmery silvered mauve.
I am tempted to go back for Blue Sorcery as YorkieLuvs did a nice look with this, http://yorkieluvs.blogspot.com/2009/11/fotd-100409.html
I also got the naughty noir set. I am pleased with what I bought and I think MAC offer some nice gift options for Christmas.
