Courtesy of Amyopoly.com, Temptalia has swatches of the new products coming out with the MAC Collection “In 3D.” Apparently there were a few locations that put out displays and allowed a few customers to buy these, even though this collection isn’t slated to be launched until August some time.
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 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.
