Readers of this blog will know how excited I am about this new collection from MAC (if not, you can read it here), so I’m even more excited to show you the results of a little playtime with some of the products themselves.

I’ve never done a face of the day (FOTD) blog post before, but there’s a first time for everything, so here goes.

First off, the products I used:

Select Moisture Cover Concealer NC44
Loved this, will buy when this runs out – lovely texture, perfect colour match 

Gulabi Lipstick – which I LOVED!
Bare Lips
Wearing Gulabi
Rani Eyeshadow
Saffron Eyeshadow – my unexpected favourite!
Marvel Eyeshadow -fabulous for a modern smokey eye
L-R: Saffron, Rani, Marvel Eyeshadows
At first glance, I have to admit I wasn’t particularly impressed with the Saffron Eyeshadow, but it has fast become my favourite eyeshadow of the collection and one I wouldn’t be without.  In fact, I’m now considering buying a couple in reserve so that I’m never without it.

And while Gulabi Lipstick looks almost too bright, I’ve since used it again and blotted it before venturing out the door, and it’s been a complete winner.

What do you think? (and yes, I’m blaming the camera for the bad photos!)

NB: These were PR samples, but I will definitely be repurchasing some of them, and going out to buy a few extras too !
