MAC's In the Groove - Haul~!


When I saw the items being released for Mac's newest collection " In the Groove" I began bringing my lunch to work every, because I had to seriously start saving my pennies for all the items I wanted from this collection

The Damage
I have never bought so much from 1 collection

I actually wanted to stop buying make up for the remainder of July after my last little trip, but the words "Limited Edition" really seems to break my boundaries. Who knows when these will be re promoted? *Sigh* Mac I love/hate you

The MSF's! ( looks like the solar system )

I only owned 1 MSF prior this collection so I really want to try these out.

By Candlelight MSF
I really regretted not getting this when the Warm and Cozy Collection came out. I'm glad it was re promoted so soon. Gorgeous pink/peach champagne


Petticoat MSF

When originally released, I was not into MAC yet. After hearing so many satisfied customers with this item, I was happy to purchase. This looks like something I would have gravitated towards regardless

Pink shimmer with raspberry and gold veining


Stereo Rose MSF

THE most coveted item in this collection it seems. This sold out online within 2 hours in the states. Truthfully I bought this to see what the huge hype was about.
My MAC store was of course out of stock ( regardless of me walking in 15 minutes post opening..) but the lovely sales associate mentioned 1 MAC store still had some remaining. The one in Soho, the very last MAC store in the city ( not counter, did not check those) that had Stereo Rose in stock. Even MAC PRO was sold out. I reserved mine and picked it up same day.
The man at the Soho counter informed me I had gotten the last one! YAY! Last in the city!
( MAC store anyway ) Today I was oddly lucky!
A beautiful coral with gold shimmer, so pretty. I think this would go with many skin tones.


Hang Loose Mineralized Blush

I bought this because it reminded me of Moon River ( which I am totally coveting) applied to the skin it is a gorgeous pink frost but there is some lilac in it. Wearable light purple/pink frost blush. In my opinion this is prettier than the Azalea Blossom that came out in Spring Forecast.
I will used this mixed but you can of course use one side as a blush and one as a highlighter for a multi purpose item



MAC Mocha Blush -Matte
Just kinda wish listed so I grabbed this, when I bought this and Style I thought I was not getting Stereo Rose due to stock issues, I only found out about Soho when paying, happy I was. More of a mauve pink



MAC Style Blush-Frost

I bought MAC Peaches and regretted it. At the time I was choosing between Peaches and Style. Now that I have this, I feel far more satisfied. Very pretty orange shimmer. A wearable peach/orange


Jazz Lipstick Creme Sheen
This is the lipstick everyone seems to be talking about in this collection.
Wearable coral pink orange. Pretty cute for spring and summer. It grabs attention but its not attention grabbing. Does that make sense?

  9. I just called my Nordstrom MAC counter to put petticoat and hang loose on hold (phew they had it!) after seeing your swatches. I don't own a single mac item (save for a tube of lip glass from my high school years)!
