M·A·C additions

I have to feed my urges as a makeup addict from time to time, and Specktra is the perfect place for fulfilling those needs. When you've become a regular poster you'll gain access to the "Clearance Bin", a section of the forum used for swapping and selling. Here you're able to find items that are DC or LE, items that are HTF and items that for some reason are just popular and therefore difficult to get your hands on. Some items are expensive enough, while others can be a real bargain! A couple of weeks ago I purchased some eyeshadows from another user there, and since they were used refills and depots, they came wrapped securely in paper tissue. I didn't unwrap them straight away because none of my precious M·A·C palettes had any free space, so I decided to wait until I had bought another palette to put them in. Today I got the chance to free up a palette and I carefully unwrapped them one by one, and I was surprised but the wonderful colors! Most of them are LE shades in the finishes Lustre, Frost and Veluxe Pearl.

  • Au Contraire LE (frost)
  • D'Bohemia LE (lustre)
  • Honey Lust (lustre)
  • Idol Eyes (lustre)
  • Leisuretime LE (veluxe pearl)
  • Orange Tangent LE (frost)
  • Sweeten Up LE (frost)

I'm not sure that I like the texture on all of these shadows, but the colors are amazing! I can hardly wait to do a look with Leisuretime and Au Contraire together as I simply love purples, and I'm anxious to see if the four pinkish-orange shades will show up on my skin tone. Idol Eyes is hated by some and loved by others, and I'm not quite sure what I think yet. The color is a nice light purplish-gray, but the texture seems difficult to work with. Honey Lust is a gorgeous bronze-dipped peach color, and will look great paired with brown as a splash of color to a neutral eye. I'm very happy with this purchase, and updates on them will follow!

* DC = Discontinued, LE = Limited Edition, HTF = Hard to Find
