Makeup Haul: MAC Neo Sci-Fi Goodies!

Wokay. I am happy. I am grinnning happy. And it's obvious why. I headed down to MAC today (before a night assignment) and got myself some makeup goodies from their Neo Sci-Fi collection. (It's out in M'sia, ladies!)

(From left to right: Evening Aura, Spaced Out, X-Rocks, Expensive Pink. Sorry girls, I just couldn't get the colours to come out exactly right).

As you can see, I got two blushers, and two eyeshadows, and they all come in this BRIGHT neon orange packaging (that colour stayed very true in the photo).

Blushers

As you all know, (besides lippies,) I am a blush junkie (especially for MAC blushers), so I couldn't help myself but get BOTH blushers (sheertone shimmers, my favourite) from this collection.

Especially for Spaced Out. MAC describes it as a "shimmery peach", and anything that says "peach" grabs my attention immediately. I knew I had to have it from the moment I saw it out on their website.

As for X-Rocks, it's a "shimmery dirty mauve", as MAC calls it. It departs from my usual blush range, hence I was tempted to give it a try. MUA girls said it looks blah in the pan, but great on their MAC NC20-all-the-way-to-NC35 skin. And I have NC25/30 skin. So here goes. If it really doesn't work as a blush, well... I'll have a really huge pan of what looks like a great eyeshadow.

Eyeshadows

I also got two eyeshadows - Expensive Pink and Evening Aura (both veluxe pearls). Expensive Pink looked great swatched on. It looked pinky/coralish gold, and I am pretty sure it's a shade I can pull off easily, as I'm into gold, bronze and copperish shades. And as for Evening Aura, it's "frosty golden peach". Enough said.

So hang around, because I plan to be posting reviews when I get around to playing with them. Soon.

Have you ladies gotten anything from the Neo Sci-Fi collection? Or plan to? Share your hauls/lemmings in your comments! I want to hear from you.

PS: Blush cost RM70 each, and shadows RM57 each. *gulp*

Guess what? Silk Naturals has a clone of Expensive Pink - I guess it must have turned up in some other collection before. Look here.

Okay totally unrelated-to-the-post comment here. Kahani, saw your makeup bag contents in Kiss and Makeup (LOVE that site; have been reading for a year now :p). You go girl! Promote M'sia more. Hehehehe!

Syen said...

Kahani: If I'm not mistaken Expensive Pink isn't an LE. I've seen it before. And I think the MAC MA here told me the same thing too. But heck, why own one in the plain black pot when you can have it in neon orange? =P

Are you going to try the Expensive Pink clone from SN?

Tine: Yea, I saw her in the vid too. Somebody's makeup bag was so full she had trouble unzipping it. LOL. =P

"Why own the plain black one when you can have it in neon orange?"

*grasps heart* To think I would ever hear such a statement from YOU!!! WHO are you? And WHAT have you done with Syen??

Syen said...

MUAHAHAHA.. *evil laughs*.. Syen's GONE! Behold, YOUR Franchenstine!!!!

*ahem*.. Sorry, for the rest of you girls. It's a little insider joke we've got running. I'm her little makeup monster.

*GRIN* =D

kahani said...

Yes, little do the rest of you know, but when I first met her, the only makeup she used was lipbalm, and her favourite and ONLY go-to colour was BEIGE

Syen said...

HEY! That's not entirely true, but oh well... I still like beige/cream by the way. Nothing's wrong with THAT colour. I just like MORE colours these days. =P

haha you girls are funny!

Syen, you're such a splurger.. I would buy like 1 blush MAX at a time.
But the packaging is TOO cute.
MAC in Malaysia is like Aus, quite expensive. I would say in the US, it's 'cheap'!

Syen said...

Hehe.. Like I said, I'm a blush junkie. =P What to do? (Granted, I don't usually buy so many pricey products at one go, this IS a bit of a splurge. Really!)

But yes, it's quite pricey here, although I should think it's even pricier in Aust. How much is a MAC blush in Aust?

Now if I were in the US, I'd be in makeup heaven. =)

But then, I really needed some "retail therapy" that day. Seriously, when you work so many looong hours, you NEED some sort of therapy. =P
