Style Warriors Collection & Pictures

.



So did any of you ladies grab anything from this collection? Of course the one thing I loved about this collection was the animal print packaging. My favorite animal is the Zebra, so this collection was right up my alley!

Luckily the eyeshadows didn't appeal to me at all (other than "Night Maneuvers" which is a pretty color for a smokey eye look), I already have "Femme Fi" from the Solar Fields collection and reminds me of "Soft Force", and "Magnetic Fields" is somewhat close to "Night Maneuvers" (to me anyway), and I already have "tempting" and "vibrant grape" has crappy color payoff for me, and how often would I wear yellow eyeshadow?!?? So that crossed off "Bright Future" (it IS a pretty color I just know I would never reach for it).

The lipglosses "Gold Rebel" and "Style Warrior" were must haves for me, I love the gold peachy sheen "Gold Rebel" gives and warms up my skintone with a pop of warmth and color, and I love the deep earthy tone of "Style Warrior" and it's very wearable and not super dark. "Liberated" is a nice cool yellow lipgloss which is great by itself or over a lipstick, and "Fierce & Fabulous" reminded me of a few lipglasses I already have like "Magnetique", so I was trying not to get colors similar to what I already have.

The lipsticks are adorable in their tribal safari-esque packaging and I truly love "Brave New Bronze" lipstick! It's a gorgeous neutral lipstick with a subtle hint of pink. I definitely need to buy a back up of it! "Purple Rite" is a frost lipstick- if "Violetta" lipstick and "Bubbles" has a baby this would probably be their child, LOL. It's a nice subtle hint of purple on my lips, not bright, but completely wearable. "Sunsational" was way too sheer for me and didn't go nicely with my skintone, and I didn't want to buy it just to overlay it over another lipstick, "Tribalist" is a nice deep chocolate purple color, which I could never pull of but wished I could!

I also got the bronzing powder in "Refined Golden" (it's also permanent so no need to rush ladies but hurry if you want it in the special packaging!), it's a nice warm brown with a hint of shimmer for a nice bronze glow or to highlight your tan. "Solar Riche" seemed a bit too orangey for my skintone.

Beauty Powder Blush "Eversun" of course is a re-promote and is a nice medium peachy color that would look great on anyone, and "On a mission" is a nice soft plum or mauve color.

The Lustre drops are great as a highlighter, or you can mix them into your foundation or lotion for a subtle hint of shimmer and glow.

I didn't swatch the lustre drops or the leg sprays, but here are some pics!

mykjessnjr said...

I am a MAC junkie- as are most of us here, lol, but I must say that to ME, this is the LEAST impressive collection they have put out lately.

To me it just kinda screams 'typical summer bronzer/sunkissed look.'


The packaging is cute, but I'll pass on this collection.

Have a great weekend all!!

Beauty Savvy said...

I gotta stop reading your MAC hauls, because I ALWAYS end up buying your swatched items!! I popped by a MAC store yesterday and swatched Brave on the back of my hands, but never took the time to actually try it out. I liked it, but didn't want to purchase right away. However, now that I've seen it on YOUR lips, I MUST GRAB ONE!!

Thanks for the great posts :D

gglovebaby said...

this collection is so pretty! i just cant afford it

Marie said...

Not so much of a Mac fan girl, but I love your blog. Great post, Vanessa. (:

Linda said...

Thanks for the swatches Vanessa! I'm always tempted to buy after seeing them.

And I hope you can help me with this. So I heard it can take anywhere from 2 weeks to a month for a pimple to form. So how would you know if you're breaking out from a cerain product right away? I'm breaking out badly right now but I don't know if it's from this product I'm using now or something I used long ago.

Tracy said...
