MAC Cosmetics – Novel Twist Collection Review & Additional Swatches

The launch had a good mixture of products that would appeal to both new and old collectors, because of how many products were included in this collection. Personally I was not that enthused and found little that I really, really just had to have to add to my stash, but I still found plenty of things that caught my eye. The paint pots are a potential item I’d like to test out, and the PRO brush set was lovely. Of course, the darling miniaturized version of the 182 brush was my favorite part of Novel Twist.

Flashtronic & Rushmetal Collection Reviews

Flashtronic is one of those collections that seems like it looks a whole lot prettier than it actually is once you take it home and start using it. Each mineralize shadow sure looks divine in the pot, with all those swirls and veins of glitter, but the color you get? Kind of drab, nothing overtly amazing or special. Some of them are kind of chalky, even, which is definitely not something to rave about. The lipglasses were interesting in terms of opacity, because they weren’t very sheer and sort of dull in color, but not in a bad way.

MAC Cosmetics – Flashtronic & Rushmetal Collections Available Online!

Flashtronic & Rushmetal are both on the United States’ site for preview and purchase! I definitely say check it out if you can’t in person. Remember, both of these launch July 19th in most stores. If you’re unsure, call your local store or counter to verify the launch date, but you might need to speak with several people – not every makeup artist is as knowledgeable about dates as us addicts are!


*sigh* Why doesn’t MAC reward me for all the promoting I do? Then I could afford this entire collection, haha 😉

Enjoy lovelies, and be sure to post your hauls here! I’d love to hear what you bought and your opinions of the collections.
