MAC Rocky Horror Collection SWATCHED! I see you shiver with antici… pation

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.

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.

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?
