MAC Style Black Haul







My MAC Style Black Haul! I purchased Young Punk Mineral shadow, Bat Black Cream Color Base, Night Violet Mattene lipstick, and Blackfire Glimmerglass. I have to say I really love the eyeshadow a lot and think it's so great for doing smokey looks, especially layered over a black base. I was afraid that Bat Black was going to crease like crazy, but after some experimentation I found that it works fine if you apply it over a MAC Paint (I like Untitled) with a brush and just apply a very thin layer. Didn't crease at all after that!

Overall I love this edgy collection and wish that MAC would release more collections like this - how many times have we seen the same colors just repeated over and over again in different packaging with a new name? Enough pinks and nudes already! How many MAC collections have we had this year with those same boring shades?

In this haul I also purchased MAC Media lipstick, and So This Season Lipglass from the F/W Trend collection. I love both! I have an obsession with vampy lipstick colors, can you tell? Don't be afraid to stray from the ever-so-popular nude lips - dark, bold lipstick shades can look fabulous!

Sorry, I'm not one for swatching, but you can find some great swatches of this collection here.

  6. I held off on purchasing anything from style black. I purchased a lot from the last 6 collections and I didn't want to buy more of the same stuff. I was waiting to see the reviews on the products first and now I'm going jump in head first. Thanks for your review.

    Julia, love your work. Question about the eyeshadows palettes, I love MAC products but they are really expensive plus I cannot get them in palette(the real ones not the fake ones from ebay). I came to know about the 120 palette by bhcosmetics and many others but I'm concerned about the quality as I don't want to get something cheap stuff which is made in China. Please advise how can I get real MAC palettes at discounted price or other alternatives. Thanks.

  14. Love the dark and exciting colors.MAX has real good choice in the palette and the quality that it stands for is amazing.They are expensive but then every good thing on earth comes with a price.
