I normally don't post these kinds of post but I'm venturing out a bit why... because very rarely do you find a major brands endorsing beautiful black actresses and models as their brand ambassadors. Lancome endorsed Lupita Nyong'o last year after she won the Oscar as one of their brand ambassadors and now we have Bobbi Brown, a major brand, endorsing another beautiful women of color as the face of their South African Cosmetics Campaign. You can read the full story here.

Swatches ~ Mac Dazzleshadow Pigments from MACnificant Collection | ColorDrenched Pigments from Magic of the Night Holiday 2015 + Video
The MAC Dazzleshadow Pigments has very pigmented glitters released in a limited collection of ten Dazzleshadow colors. They are very creamy in texture and apply perfectly with very little fallout. As with all glitter pigments it is best to apply a glitter glue to keep them in place. I like to use these in the inner corner of my eyes for a hint of sparkle.

I thought this packaging was absolutely adorable! I picked up almost all the items from this collection except for the one of the blushes, I don't remember if there were any lipsticks released in this or not, nevertheless I don't really wear lipsticks any longer.

Mac Mangrove Matte lipstick is a limited edition (LE) that is part of the Proenza Schouler collection released last month. I would describe this lipstick as a mixture between a deep rose and a light red. I haven't swatched it because it's definitely a collector's item because of the packaging, but you can definitely find swatches if you choose to.

The Mac Nocturnals Holiday Sets came out for Christmas and I was happy to pick up the Coral Lip Gloss Set. There were two other lip sets in Nudes and Reds, as well as pigment sets and eye shadow palettes.
What I loved about this coral lip gloss set was the variety from light to dark. All the colors are drop dead gorgeous and i'm really into wearing lip glosses now, with or without lipstick. What I usually like to do is apply the lip gloss first, then apply a matching lipstick over it, that way it doesn't look so shiny and keeps the lipstick from sliding off.

This collection was released exclusively for Macy's on Black Friday. They were sold from 12am - 4am at all the Mac counters. I knew Macy's was going to be crazy because all their departments were offering exclusive sales, so I went early to stand in line. When they finally opened the doors to the mall, I went straight to the Mac counter, to my surprise, I was the only one there! This collection is being released on Dec 6th online and in stores and i'm sure it's going to sell out immediately.

I've had these for about two weeks now and just got around to swatching them. They are so beautiful with the slightest shimmer that makes them ever more appealing. I think you'll love the swatches and feel they're a must-have for your collection!

I was invited to the Mac pre-launch party where they released two collections. The first collection was called Shop Shop Shop & Cook Cook Cook and the second collection was called the Vera Collection. I bought seven items total I forgot to include the 286 stifling brush in the photo below but I will definitely have swatches of it. So for the next few days I will be posting photos and swatches of all the items below.
