MAC Indulge - Eye and Cheek
I finished up several eyeliners at the very end of last winter and have not yet replaced them so I am looking at this collection as a prime time to do so. It might sound boring, but I am most in need of a plain brown cream eyeliner as I used up the one I bought from Tarte last fall. That is the most important item that I am looking at in this collection but I am sure that I will want much more than just a new liner.
"Fall Colour is a surreal feast for the senses, where no taste is too extravagant and no behaviour beyond limits. On the menu: Cremeblend Blush flushes skin with buildable glow as Eye Shadow defines eyes for the ultimate in temptation, intensified by Fluidline. Haute and Naughty Too Black Lash darkens and lengthens lashes.", states the MAC website in a description of this part of the collection. Cremeblend Blush being in this collection is very exciting to me since I also love to use cream blush in the cold weather months. I think that this might be one of the few collections that I will find products that I want to buy for every single facial feature!

This is another strong collection for me...MAC is hitting all the high notes this fall! My favorite aspect of this collection is the two new shades of Fluidline, both the shimmering gold and shimmering taupe will be awesome for fall and I will be able to use them with the Urban Decay Naked Palettes and many other eye makeup shades that I already own. I will be picking these two up on the first day of the collection release! I am already thinking about my fall eye makeup looks and I can say that these two shades will play a big role this fall!
I like some of the Eye Shadows shades but I am not dying for any of them. Sex and the Oyster is one of the best names that I have ever seen for a makeup shade but I don't like the color and it wouldn't be very flattering either. I would like to buy three of the warmer neutral shades as they will work well with the shades that I already own and tend to wear the most of, my choices are: Gilty Morsel, Divine Decadence, and Deep Cravings (not a neutral but a great shade!). I am always looking to expand my eye shadow collection and I have found some solid new shades with this part of Indulge.
The Cremeblend Blush is a product that I am very excited about and just might be the product that I am the most excited about in this whole collection. I love both of these shades and pinks and rose are the best for my skintone. In the fall and winter, my skin gets much more pale and I love to wear bright cheek looks throughout the whole season. These are two more products that I will want to get the first day!
I have quite a shopping list from this collection! My must haves include two blushes, two eyeliners, a lipstick, a lip gloss, and a nail polish. I have a feeling that my return to the MAC counter will be huge!
