MAC: Starflash Collection (Swatches)


***Some of you asked which one was an overall winner from my last post on the concealer, it's a tie for me to be honest and I actually use both sometimes, the liquid, and then put MAC's concealer on top. They both bring something to to table, for the winter I think all I need is the Maybelline one because it's lighter and I can use it without wearing foundation. With this HOT california heat, I need something that'll stay on a bit longer hence I use both at the same time; since the MAC one is a cream, it stays on longer for me. But if you DON'T need a lot to conceal much, then the Maybelline one will work just fine.

The release date for the Starflash collection is Thursday July 31, 2008. I was able to preview this collection along with the other lippie collection coming out "Lustre Twins" (Pro-Long Wear)as my local Nordie's had it already out on display. However, I did NOT buy anything because I want to use my discount as I plan on buying ALL of the eyeshadows, yes ALL. Why? Well take a look at these swatches and seriously just TRY to pick only one you want, I dare you! LOL.

So I plan on getting all of them because they are gorgeous! (Besides, the BF said I can! haha) and there are about 3 eyeshadows missing from these swatches because the MUA was using it on someone...enjoy!

Are you all planning to get something from this collection?

I'm on my 5 month make-up probation at the wroooong time. These are all very pretty and it sucks I won't be able to just haul them all. Buuuut, I can't wait to see your looks! Have a wonderful weekend!

Ruby said...

It's in a light/teal blue pot that was LE i think...i don't remember the name.

Anonymous said...

darn you! i said i wouldn't buy anymore makeup. lol but now i'm eyeing a few colors! well, actually...i said i wouldn't buy anymore makeup but mac limited edition makeup. lol. so i guess i will have to buy some of these babies!

Lani said...

talent pool, top hat and sunset b. are to die for!! ;)

Kat said...

Top Hat looks extremely like MAC Cinders (trend/teal holiday palette 2005)

Talent Pool look like UD Shattered, maybe a tad darker but same shade of aqua with gold shimmer

I think that Lotusland is really pretty. Star by Night is pretty but so many shades of dark/mid blues that look the same on.

Ethereal Prey said...

zomg those lippies! They look so pretty and awesome! *cries* i can't buy any makeup!!!!

Joey said...

Aw, crap. I buy SO much MAC because of your blog, lol! I think I'm going to pick up Talent Pool, Top hate, Lotusland, and Sunset B. Oh, no. Haha.

dandelionpicker said...

I think I need all of those! Very pretty. There are two of the prolongwear that I really like too :) That stuff is awesome!

xoxo Jaimie said...

That sunset is gorgeous! I'll have to go get it!

Just gave you a Brillant Blog Award!

Stephy said...

Tara said...

theyre all soo pretty!!! is bold and brazen similar to Coppering??? it kinda looks like it. and does Talent pool look similar to WAternymph or something else from MAC???

from the picture they kinda do...

Tanya Annette said...

Gahhh!!! Top Hat is so pretty- but looks way too close to Fertile :( What's a purple lovah to do!?

Anonymous said...

noooo! ahhaha whyyy did you show us this?! i've been trying to stay away from mac & now THIS! i loveeee the colors..i can't blame you for getting all of them. lucky lucky girl!
so pretty..
i'm mad. haha

Bliss said...

Gorgeous colours and swatches. You are so lucky to see them early.

JennBee said...

Ooh, thanks for all the great swatches and product pictures! I'm on a no-buy right now, but I sure hope those shadows stick around long enough for me to grab them! :( Ohh, MAC, so cruel...

Erica said...

I love Sunset B! it's so pretty =] but I don't use bright pinks much lol

Askmewhats said...

I can't choose just ONE favorite color! you are right!!! and pls don't dare us to choose ...I've got my heart pounding just thinking about the choosing! :( lol

Roxy said...

I was thinking, oh maybe I won't buy too many from Starflash because they look really similar to old colors, but the swathces on your hand look sooo pretty! I really want mink & sable, talent pool, sunset b, and grand entrance! oh lordy. thank goodness I have a bunch of empty pods I can use for back2mac (I'm allowed to use those on LE e/s right? lol)

I saw your post about your little iphone adventure lol you have one too right? I can't believe you paid practically double for the bf's phone though! But I think it would be something I would do anyway. When the sidekick 3's first came out a long time ago, I bought the hubby one too! I just like spoiling people I love. I get that people do like to flaunt their relationships when they're happy, but good lord some people are too much! lol It just makes it seem like they're more focused on letting everyone know that they're together than actually being together, but to each his own! I always told myself I wouldn't get married til I was 30 but here I am now! When you're ready your ready. I heard this advice AFTER I got married, but someone said "think of ALLL the problems that you have when you're just in a relationship. When you get married, it magnifies by 100!" Basically he was saying if you can't handle those little annoying things when you're just dating, you won't be able to handle it married. And it's so funny because it's true! lol Well sorry for ranting! =]

ooh thanks for thinking of possible dupes! The only colours that interest me are Top Hat and Sunset B, and I already have the Cool Eyes palette so now I can skip them :)

Debbie said...

Anonymous said...

What did you think of the Lip Lustres?
Alta Moda / Hip Love interests me the most, but Red flame / Orange Flicker and Red Reflection / Mirror seem nice, as does Pink Air / White Top

kristine said...

i really love top hat and star by night!

Anonymous said...

Sunset B let me down! :(

J said...

* Alta Moda / Hip Love - Deep blackened red/deep plum with red pearlized pigments

Fell in love and now its DC... Any suggestions on a match... or where i can find it! I'm desperate.... Its become my signature...
