MAC Style Warrior Collection

I went to a Style Warrior Launch Party at my local Nordstrom last week, and I was really excited to see all the new stuff being released for summer. I had all these great intentions of taking pics and swatches for you all. Unfortunately, the sales assistants wouldn't let me take pictures of the makeup products themselves. So then I thought to myself, no problem, I will take pictures of the swatches on my hands. Well, I tried but one of my hands got messed up because the sales assistant decided to put a big blotch of paint smack dab in the middle of everything. The other hand only had swatches of three of the shadows, so that is all I have to show you guys. =( 
The purple eyeshadow is Vibrant Grape (also a PRO color), the yellow is Bright Future, and the taupy shade is Night Manoeuvres. Overall, the shadows weren't anything amazing and I felt you could easily get similar shades from the permanent line. 

The stuff I really did like was:

Brave New Bronze Lipstick - A gorgeous nude color that will compliment everyone.

Bronzescape Solar Bits - Although the product itself is hard to work with, the color payoff on this one was fantabulous! I actually did pick this one up and can't wait to wear it to a party or night out on the town.

All the Lustre Drops - These are like liquid pigments that can be used for just about anything. I tried mixing Sun Rush with my foundation and it gave me a natural, summery glow. I plan to use this mixed with lotion and applied on my shoulders during summer, and also as a highlighter or shadow base. The lustre drops are super blendable and can be used for just about anything!

I wasn't a huge fan of the lipglass shades or the eyeshadows. And although the Solar Bits are hard to work with because they are chunky little balls of creamy pigment, they look beautiful when applied to the skin. If you have patience, you will like the end product of using the Solar Bits. 

Overall I think this collection has a little something for everyone. If you check it out, let me know what you like!
