I have been dying in anticipation for this collection. Ever since I heard that it was going to come out, I had a wishlist in mind of what I was going to get. Then I lost my job. Booooo!
When I got the e-mail from MAC Tuesday annoucing the release, I was devastated that I would not be able to get the collection, and that it would be completely sold out by the time I would be able to purchase it.
I went to my local MAC store on October 2nd to window shop the collection and by 11:00 am, some of the items had already sold out. Oh well.
I put the collection out of my mind and continued the day with errands a cleaning house, when later that night, my ridiculously amazing husband told me he had something for me in my master bathroom.
I walked in and IMMEDIATELY spotted the lovely black paper MAC bag sitting on my counter. I unloaded it to see that he purchased ALMOST THE WHOLE COLLECTION for me. What a generous husband.
So now I am glad to say that I am able to show you guys some swatches!
My skintone range is a NC37 to an NC42
Riff-Raff Shadow Palette
The formula of this shadow palette applies beautifully and while you can’t tell from the swatches on my arm, they do look gorgeous on top of a primer. This is a great palette to use day or night. I wore the three shadows on the left side of the palette last night, and it helped me create a really soft and pretty 1920’s look. I am really pleased.
Horror 7 Lash
These are the same as the Marge Lashes from the Simpsons Collection, and also a part of the permanent collection for MAC.
Rocky Horror Lip Pencil in Vino
(They also sold him Fashion Boost and Bespoken For)

Rocky Horror Lipstick

I love love love love love these lipsticks. They glide on smooth and have a gorgeous color payout. These Rocky Horror lipsticks are great for any season, and would look great on any skintone.
Rocky Horror Powder Blush
You can see a very light swatch of this blush down the center of my arm, I will have to play with this blush a little more to see how I can get the most color out of it. It is really pretty in the pot though. This shade is called Crazed Imagination, it is a muted plum with a hint of pink pearl.
Rocky Horror Sculpt and Shape Powder
This powder is for highlighting and contouring, in Bone Beige/Emphasize.
Rocky Horror Glitter
The store was sold out of this glitter but, the sales associate was really nice and gave my husband a sample to try.
Rocky Horror Studio Nail Lacquer
He chose the nail lacquer in the shade Formidible. It is a dark teal with pink multi changing pearls. Nice color, and the formula dried fairly quick. Reminds me of a dark mermaid type of shade.
So there you have it, a bulk of the Rocky Horror Picture Show collection. I am very pleased with all of the products I was able to get from this collection. All of the shades are versatile, and the packaging is out of this world. A very well put together collection by MAC.
Were you able to get anything from this collection before it sold out, or are you holding out for the holiday collections?
