Hello lovelies, hope you're having a great day so far!
MAC collections take as much as 3 months to arrive to the Middle East after their release in America and the UK. It's a long time to wait for collections but I guess we got used to it. However, now it's taking much longer because the ingredients for each product has to be printed in Arabic on each item. This means that we will get multiple collections in one release!
Anyways back to the haul, last week I went to view the 3 latest collections that launched which were Strength, Apres Chic and the Pressed Pigments. All 3 collections were screaming at me, maybe because it's been so long since I hauled from MAC due to the slowness of releases (the holiday collection launched in January and I don't think I bought much from it)
Onto the haul!

Haute Altitude, Apres Chic and Absolute Power

Absolute Power, Apres Chic and Haue Altitude
From the Strength collection, 3 lipsticks were calling my name; Party Parrot, Pink Pigeon and Absolute Power. The first 2 were re-promotes from a previous collection. I didn't end up buying them because I'm not that brave to rock bright lipsticks and it may clash with my skintone (NC42-43). I ended up with Absolute Power which is a rich red (as if I need anymore reds in my collection!)
I got more products from Apres Chic; 2 lipsticks (Apres Chic and Haute Altitude) and a mineralize tinted lip balm in Rosy Romance.
From the Pressed Pigments collection, I was eyeing 4 different ones but at the end I ended up with Deeply Dashing. I'm considering going back for a lighter one (I can't remember the name of the shade) as it's so pretty on it's own on the lid, I really like the sparkly finish.
Here are the swatches:
I also got the Oil Control Lotion as I'm really interested to see how it works in 'controlling' oil. I've been applying it after my moisturiserbut before my foundation and so far so good. I feel that I need to blot less throughout the day. I also asked the sales assistant to give me a sample of the Prolong wear concealers in shade NW30 and NW35 to try them out as under eye concealers. She also kindly through in a sample of their BB cream to try out.
Did you get anything from these collections?
Until next time
