I didn't have any plans to pick up anything from the MAC Cinderella collection. Sure, I thought the products looked really nice and I loved the pretty blue and gold packaging, but I'm supposed to be saving.
Well, my long weekend that I booked off work only went and coincided with the launch of this collection into MAC stores didn't it?!!
There I was, just after 9am this morning queuing, yes queuing(!) at the MAC counter to see what goodies I could pick up. I honestly didn't expect there to be a massive queue at both counters within Fenwicks and I felt more and more anxious as products started selling out whilst I was waiting.
I'd already decided that I wanted both lipglosses, both lipsticks and the eyeshadow palette. Unfortunately only two of those products were available by the time I got served. I feel bad for all of the people who maybe planned to go after work as there would have been NOTHING left.
My favourite purchase was the Stroke of Midnight eyeshadow palette. I don't own any normal MAC eyeshadows, only the cool neutral palette so it was good to get some of their classic shades like Omega, Phloof! and Satin Taupe. They are all wearable shades and there's a good mix of matte and shimmers.
This was my least favourite of the two lipsticks, Free as a Butterfly, however it's still quite a pretty gold based nude shade. I would have loved the more pink based shade called Royal Ball too though.
I know I'm lucky to have gotten my hands on these products and a lot of people will have sadly missed out. There is another chance on the 17th of March though if you're interested. Debenhams will have stock online on this date.
Were you able to pick anything up from the Cinderella collection?
