MAC - In The Groove

Hi guys......sorry it's been so long!!! Just been so busy lately not had time to even pick laptop up after work!

Well anyway as you may or may not know I went on the make up foundation course at AOFM in June and part of that was a great shopping day where we got up 35% off MAC Bobbi Brown Space NK etc, so as you can imagine I bought lots to build up my kit, my aim is to get into wedding makeup ad I'm currently having a website designed!! I spent ALOT of money on products in London but was totally happy with everything I got, and def have a nice start to my kit with some really good wearable bridal colours, I may do a post on what I bought if you guys are interested? let me know.

Anyway I felt I hadn't really bought anything much for my own make up bag and then along came In The Groove from MAC, I had bought a couple of bits from To The Beach but was not all that inspired, In The Groove on the other hand I liked alot, so I purchased

Stereo Rose MSF!!

This is truly gorgeous a beautiful coral/bronze toned MSF it looks alot pinker in my shot but its definitely more coral it has gold flecks running through it but no chunks!!! I cant wait to wear this today, I think its sold out on he website already and as I usually dither about what I want from MAC collections, I'm glad I got in quick with this one. I think i is probably going to work better on slightly darker skin tones, but the other two Petticoat and By Candlelight would work well on all skin tones, I wanted to get them all!!!

In The Groove - Eyeshadow Trio

This was by far my favourite of the eye shadows, I steer towards these pinky burgundy tones, there so easy to wear, I'm glad MAC are doing the trio eye shadows, makes them much better value for money, for £15 I think these are great. The only other one I would have possibly picked up was Soften The Mood but I was being restrained!!

I Like It Like That - Cremesheen Lipstick

This is one of those colours I dithered over for ages, it's a really lovely bluetoned pink, and something which I don't have in my collection, It is however very bright and I had visions of my disaster with MAC Chatterbox which I loved but I just looks awful on me. But after swatching them both together in the MAC shop this is a much more cooler pink and having got it home and tried it, I think its going to become a favourite. Jazzed was also really nice but reminded me of Dressmaker from a previous collection which I have, so didn't pick that one up.

These are truly awful swatches!! I have a decent camera but my pictures always look rubbish!?!

I'm sure you have all seen thousands of these swatches anyway, but from the top In The Groove Eyeshadow Trio..........Middle Stereo Rose MSF and then bottom I Like It Like That Lippie!!

All in all This is one of my favourite MAC collections this year. So did you pick anything up?.....And what do you think?.....x
