MAC Haul/Swatches :: In the Groove Collection

So I was able to get my mittens on Stereo Rose MSF and see what all the hype was about. It truly is a nice coral color. It looks amazing on the skin either alone as a blush for a nice healthy looking glow, or layered on top of blush to give the blush some pizzazz! lol..

From this collection, I originally said (in previous post here) I was going to get:
•Stereo Rose MSF

•By Candlelight MSF
•Hang Loose Mineralize Blush
•Jazzed Lipstick

But after going there (and actually being the first one to swatch and actually see the collection) and swatching all colors.. I Skipped Hang Loose blush because I felt like it was too similar to MAC Well Dressed. I also thought of getting another blush I think Band of Roses or something, but it was too similar to MAC Dollymix (after reading Temptalia).. so I just skipped out on all the blushes in general. I might go back for it, might not..

I ended up getting these:
  • Stereo Rose MSF
  • By Candlelight MSF
  • Togetherness MES
  • Style Influencer MES
  • Jazzed L/S
So I was pretty pleased with my selections. I read on temptalia's blog and from other sources on that Petticoat MSF mixed with Comfort MSF comes extremely close to Stereo Rose MSF.. so I know if I do run out and if I ever run out of Stereo Rose, i'll just pick up comfort MSF lol! (since I have Petticoat MSF)

I did a quick video on my haul and just so that you could see them. And here are also some pictures too! :)

Style Influencer MES
Style Influencer - Satin silver/Pearly deep blue/Satin deep mauve brown (Limited Edition)

Togetherness MES
Togetherness - Satin lavender/Pearly purple/Satin grey (Limited Edition)

I will have some swatches of these eyeshadows momentarily.

The cool thing I like about the eyeshadows are that you can use them both dry and wet.. (looks more amazing/vivid wet though) and it's not like the older MES that came out like Young Punk MES - tons of fall out when Dry and really bad payoff.. these texture of the new ones are amazing, silky, soft.. minimal fallout to none compared to previous MES.. 

Did you end up getting anything from this collection?

I was bummed out that the MAC counter (in Macy's) that I went to didn't have the Alice + Olivia collection.. and I couldn't drive the 25 minutes to another location.. But luckily someone from Specktra was extremely nice and did a CP for me for two pigments (Partylicious & Later pigments).. i hope to get them on Monday/Tuesday.
