CCO MAC Haul and Swatches

5 years ago

On our way back home vacation, I decided to make a pit stop at the CCO, lol. Yep, more shopping. I haven`t shopped there in a while so I was hoping to find something I might want.

Here`s what I picked up:

MAC baked eyeshadow Smoked Ruby. I was happy to find the baked eyeshadows from the semi-precious collection which released back in July 2011. There is something unique about this color. It`s a shimmery darkened burgundy brown. This shade is quite pigmented and smooth.
MAC baked eyeshadow Jade`s Fortune. This shadow is a greyish teal with multi-colored shimmers. It`s rather sheer when applied dry and gives a better color payoff when applied wet. I was surprised that once it was swatched, you can barely see the green
MAC baked eyeshadow Hint of Shappire. It`s a greyish lavender blue with multi-colored shimmers. The pigmentation isn`t that great when applied dry but with a wet application, the shimmers really come to life.
MAC eyeshadow Lime. This is a bright matte lime green. I love adding more matte to my eyeshadow collection.
MAC Kissable lipcolor Strut Your Stuff. This is a bright red lipgloss that I find very pigmented, no shimmers. It has a blue undertone and a slight raspberry tinge to it.
MAC lipstick Prince Noir is a matte finish according to the label but I find that it has a slight sheen to it when swatched. I wonder if it goes away after a while. The color kind of remind me of black cherry with a brown undertone. It`s very vampy but I love it. I know I won`t use it much but I like to keep these shades around for days I wanna try something different.

By the way, swatches of the baked eyeshadows are done dry on the left and wet on the right.

Quite honestly I just can`t keep up with these MAC collections anymore and it`s getting to the point I really don`t mind waiting to see if they show up at the CCO. It`s not always fun paying full price, unless it`s something you want bad enough. Otherwise, good things can happen for those who wait and have access to a CCO.

What was your last MAC purchase?
