New Dose of MAC Vamplify

Hello sweeties!

Last night I’ve been teasing you with my latest makeup purchases which included some MAC stuff as well so right this morning I knew I ought to share with you what I’ve bought. The new MAC Vamplify 2016 Collection (info, photos) just reached Romania so you’d better hurry and check it out as it will fly off of counters so fast. MAC Vamplify comes the second time around, after their success back in the fall of 2015. I did manage to get me some shades back then but honestly when arrived at the counters most of my favorites were sold-out. This year I couldn’t let that happen again so yesterday I hurried to my nearest MAC Store.

MAC Spellbinder Holiday 2016 Collection

Hello pretties!

I feel like it has been ages since I introduced you to MAC Spellbinder Shadow Collection and it surely feels that way since the information was leaked back in spring. I’m happy to say that I was probably the first blogger to have these beauties and an hype was taking place on Instagram when I first posted a couple of videos, along with swatches and later on reviews. Indeed, I’m happy to report that I already reviewed 4 out of 8 shades available, the ones that seemed more appealing to me, but I’ll probably get the rest later on. If you haven’t heard about MAC Spellbinder Holiday 2016 Collection yet, then it’s definitely worth checking out, as I haven’t been so excited for a MAC product in a long time, actually since MAC released Vamplify Collection last year. You can check out this video and see the magic happening. Sadly MAC Spellbinder collection won’t be arriving in Romania as far as I know, since I asked yesterday at one of MAC’s counters. MAC MUA’s already had their update for fall winter 2016 collection and they didn’t know anything about spellbinder shadows launching here.

This is one attraction that’s impossible to resist. Spellbinder Shadow creates mesmerizing eyes with the deepest, most mysterious shades, clinging to lids like pure velvet. Black, ionized pigments are magnetically charged, fusing the loose powder together so it magically maintains its form and dimension. Hexing hues pull you in, casting their spell in blackened emerald, cobalt and teal, as the metallic finish captivates all that crosses its path.
