So what am I going to end up with? The basic and advanced brush sets, Warm Eyes palette, Sun Centered Colour Form powder, and Rose Bullion Rich Metal highlighter.
I was surprised that the brush set are pretty good. It's almost as good as the full-sized one. They're all really soft unlike the Antiquitease collection which were a tad scratchy. This is a great beginner set for those who are just starting out and want to try out MAC brushes. I also chose the Warm Eyes palette since it is the most pigmented palette out of the two. The Cool Eyes palette for some reason was too sheer. I had to dig through the eyeshadow to get a pretty decent swatch. Sun Centered Colour Form powder will be a great bronzer because of it's peachy-gold color. It has a nice sheen finish so it's not overwhelmingly glittery on your face but just enough to give you a glowly look! Rich Metal highlighter in Rose Bullion is very pretty as well. It's great as an eyeshadow or highlighter. I think I'm going to have to go back and get Quick Flash. Rich Metal reminded me of the previous Metal-X collection except that it's more creamy and consistent and almost similar to a cream color base.
The guy who helped me out with my pre-sale order rock. He was soo friendly, funny, and so chatty. I wish all the MUA are like that. Also, he was nice enough to give me samples of the pigments for me to try out. So I'll be doing a look for that soon, so stay tuned.
Colour Forms will be available at your nearest Nordstrom counters and Nordstrom.com on July 11 (US/Canada) and August 2008 (International). But get to steppin' right now and pre-order your favorite before they sold out!
Based on the swatches, what do you think you'll be getting?
