MAC Solar Field & Neo Sci-Fi Collection

.

I know, I know, I am lagging on replying back to some of you, I am trying! But there's just so much to do all at once that sometimes it slips my mind! I will try and answer many of your questions today and tomorrow. :)

I took some swatches of the newest collection from MAC. My official take on it (product review) won't be completed until tomorrow night because I ordered mine online (the eyeshadows and pigments) and it is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, but I was able to snag a couple of the lipsticks that I didn't add to cart previously: Sci-Fi Delity and Pleasureseeker.

Some of you didn't like the bright neon orange packaging, and I am not a fan of orange either, BUT I must say I like that it's bright because it helps me differentiate which lipsticks are what compared to the other lipsticks I have, especially the normal sleek black MAC tubes. It makes it a lot easier to just see it. Grab it. And go!

I swatched the blushes and the lipglasses on my right hand, and then I forgot about it and it wiped off somewhere... :(











This is Sci-Fi Delity mixed with the gorgeous glaze lipstick, Pleasureseeker.


"Evening Aura" is also "Femme Fi", I didn't realize the MUA was using Evening Aura on someone and just replaced it with another Femme Fi (argh I hate when they do that! LOL)




The receptionist said I had a delivery of flowers. I didn't think it was from the BF because he's not THAT romantic, it's not my birthday (yet), and it's not Valentine's Day (LOL), unless I was dying and I didn't know! I then thought it was from my dad since my birthday is around the corner (June 1st), but I know he wouldn't send it TOO early, but alas! It was indeed from the BF with a card that read, "Just Because I love you! -Romeo". (Yes, that's his real name, LOL)

Awwww it was VERY sweet, even though I must admit I thought it was fishy, so much so that I immediately called him and said "What did you do? Did you break one of my eyeshadows? Did you sleep with someone?" LOL. He was like "NO! It's because I love you!" LOL.

It was a HUGE martini glass with two straws, just in time for margaritas in Vegas! (Even though I can't drink since im allergic to alcohol! Phooey!)

iamgrape1119 said...

AWWW~ Your BF is WAY too cute!! *Stares at my bf (who's playing video games)for not being romantic and sweet...

The solar bits look like they have a lot of fall out and kinda chunky, are they? Thanks!

Yellow Fever said...

aww, those are gorgeous flowers! your swatches are making me go broke! I thought I would just go buy one lipstick from the collection but now I have my eye on more stuff!

Tracy said...

jon is so sweet! did u really ask him if he broke one of your eyeshadows? hahaha. i don't encourage zac to give me flowers kuz i think it's a waste of money. hehehe. the last boquet he got me was an edible arrangements one with chocolate covered strawberries. can't say no to that!

Katrina said...

Delity looks so gorgeous, don't know that it would go with my skin tone though. Your flowers are lovely.

Miranda said...

Thnx for the swatches!

You have a great boyfriend. I think you should keep him (LOL!)

Love from Holland!

Lily said...

HAHA "Did you break one of my eyeshadows?" That is hilarious! That's what I'd say to my boyfriend!

spankedelic said...

awww....your bf is so sweet. i remember my fiance (he was my bf at the time) came to my house EARLY one morning with roses. i was like, "what's this for?" and he said, "i had a dream that you left me..." lol. he's funny. he's always bribing me with makeup to cook for him and of course i don't refuse! i'll buy making even w/o cooking for him. one day ups just barely left our apartment and he saw them drive away and he was like, "i know that ups man just dropped you off makeup. what'd you get." lol. i tried to play it off but i can't lie!

Nanzy said...

I love the fact that "Did you break one of my eyeshadows?" lines comes before "Did you sleep with someone?"

ROFL

nice swatches, thank you Nessa!

spankedelic said...

thanks for getting back to me! you're so sweet. i went on their website last night and got the buttery gold and then got a packet of the warm gold. i figured i would just mix those together and come up with a formula so i don't get too much yellow. i think i'll tweak the formula till i find something that matches. i was gonna buy pleasure seeker! i like how it looks on you. i was gonna get it online but i was like, "i'll get it in vegas when i go!" lol

Askmewhats said...

awww your bf is sooo sweet!! your story's soo funny! asking him what he had done!!! hahahah that's too cute!!!

I love pleasureseeker on you!!!

d0rksta said...

The packaging is so pretty! I want one!

And it's so sweet of your bf to deliver you flowers (:

' * : . b | u 3 . : * ' said...

those lipsticks look really great! i'm interested in reading what you think of the solar bits, if you got them that is.

alien man?! said...

*budget makeup said...

Stephanie said...

I think it's funny you asked him if he broke one of your eyeshadows before you asked if he slept with someone! lol

suzie wuzie said...

i love that mac l/s in pleasureseeker. such a nice coral colour. and your bf is such a sweet guy too. the flower is absolutely gorgeous and the martini glass is so cool!

Emilee @ GMM said...

Aww, your boyfriend's a keeper! But I'm sure you knew that before the flowers. :P

Sci-fi-Delity is such a beautiful lipstick, although it reminded me a bit of Fresh Moroccan from a while back. Thanks for the comprehensive review!

tiffany said...

I love pleasureseeker! but I have a weird question: why does the tips of the lipstick seem to have something on them? cause they look really pale in the pics!

Vanessa said...

Thanks loves! Glad you are all getting a lil something from this collection! And yeah the BF tries to be sweet! LOL.

Tiffany- That's because I used the lipstick on my lips and THEN took pics of it, I just couldn't wait!

said...

hey Nessa! am one of those orange packaging haters haha... personally i am not liking anything simply 'cause am not into neutrals but am loving your hauls nevertheless! and your BF is tooo sweet! i wish my hubby will send me flowers for no reason. :)

tiffany said...

oh hahahaha! lol man I really want pleasureseeker now.

Linda said...

thanks for the swatches! and that was so sweet of your bf. i laughed when i read, "did you break one of my eyeshadows?" lol

Nic Nic said...

I always look forward seeing lipsticks on you, you can pull off every other color! the new mac lippies look fab on you, especially sci-fi-delity! it's hot!

psychoexgirlfriend said...

LOL, I loved how if he'd broken one of your eyeshadows he may have bought you flowers. :D They're beautiful and you're lucky to have a bf so sweet and romantic like that. The new lippies look awesome. I'll be sure to check em out next week.
