Buzzworthy: Shop MAC Cook MAC for Spring 2012

This last Tuesday, I was treated to a preview of MAC's Spring 2012 line, Shop MAC Cook MAC (Shop Shop Shop Cook Cook Cook), before it's released to the public on February 16. The collection is mostly made up of limited edition and repromotes consisting of lipsticks, Kissable lipcolour, Cremeblend blushes, eyeshadow quads, Fluidlines, Tendertones, and nail polishes. I missed out on the amazing cremeblend blushes released with MAC in Lillyland, Optimistic Orange and Florida so I took the opportunity and snatched them while they were available in Shop Mac Cook Mac. These reformulated cremeblend blushes go on like a dream- rich in color and creamy in consistency. Optimistic Orange and Florida are a little intimidating in the pan, but both colors go on beautifully if you use your fingers or a stippling brush. What I also love about these two colors is their versatility- you can use these blushes as a blush, a nice colorful base or a vibrant lipcolor. I love these blushes and highly recommend you try these out! Both Watch Me Simmer and Quick Sizzle were SOLD OUT by the time i was able to get to the counter, but I did snag Kissable Lipcolor in Woo Me, a lovely matte nude. The consistency of the Kissable lipcolor is that of a liquid lipstick and the wear time I get on these is fantastic (a good 4-5 hours!). I also love the tiny hint of pink in this nude to prevent it from looking like concealer lip! Pictured below are my goodies from Shop MAC Cook MAC and my FOTD using Optimistic Orange cremeblend blush and Woo Me kissable lipcolour, along with the swatches (including Florida). Are you excited for Shop MAC Cook MAC? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
