Cosmetics Company Store MAC Haul

Leave a Comment
MAC is constantly coming out with collections, and I will be the first to admit that I am probably a bad beauty blogger for not keeping up with them all. By the time I figure out what I want from a collection, it's usually sold out everywhere because of the hype and is being sold for twice the cost on Ebay. No thanks! That's why I am so lucky to live relatively close to a great outlet mall that has a Cosmetics Company Store. A Cosmetics Company Store is an outlet that sells many of the brands owned by Estee Lauder, including MAC, at a discount. The fun thing for me is that the Cosmetics Company Store sells both permanent and limited edition products, so there's always a chance of discovering a makeup gem that;s no longer in stock anywhere else. Here's my recent little haul!

First up is the Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Silver Dawn. This limited edition eyeshadow was released at the end of 2013 in the Magnetic Nudes collection. I was amazed to find this! The color is a beautiful shimmery taupe/pewter color that makes for an easy, worn-in smokey eye. The extra dimension eye shadows can be worn wet or dry. I have only worn them dry and haven't had any problems with color payoff.

I was also pleased to find MAC's Kid eye shadow. This is a pretty basic MAC eye shadow that most MAC addicts already have, but I didn't have this one in my collection. Kid is a very easy to wear neutral crease and transition color. I have a feeling this color will be getting a lot of use.

The Mineralize Skinfinish in Adored is another limited edition product that I was happy to find! Adored was released with last summer's Tropical Taboo collection. I feel like the Mineralize Skinfinishes are one of those products that I always buy from MAC, but then end up not using. This one isn't like that at all. I can really see myself getting a lot of use out of it as a blush and highlighter. It's a light peach color with a lot of fine shimmer. This Mineralize Skinfinish doesn't have chunky glitter like may of them. For some reason, this product doesn't build up when swatched, but it really shows up on the cheeks. I really love what it does for my skin when used as a blush!

As soon as the photographs were taken, I had to start putting all of the products on! How can we resist? I put Silver Dawn on my lids and Kid in the crease. I really like these eyeshadows together! Adored is on my cheeks, and I really like how it acts as a blush and highlighter in one! 

Did any of you snag any of the limited edition products the first time around? Get any goodies recently? I'd love to know what limited edition products you have that you have been loving!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!
