Heatherette Haul and my first BLOG!

So, I am finally making my first blog post! I am so excited and feel like am joining the new world. I am not sure what all my blog is going to contain, but I am sure it will be a combination MAC comments, kid updates, photos, and who knows what else.

Okay, so on to my Heatherette review. Overall, I hate say it, but I am major disappointed! I guess, knowing Heatherette, I was really expecting something fab and flashy. From what my new fav MA said, they (Richie and Traver) did not get what they wanted with the MAC collection, and I can see that. I am guessing that it's an EL thing.

I got there early and there was only ONE other person who got there before 10! Totally different from So Cal where there is a crowd.

On to the prods themselves. I did not think I'd be all over the e/s trios, but I really liked them and got both. Glad I did not get Cloudburst when it first came out otherwise that trio would have been hard to justify. I really like the green in the #2 - it's unique in my collection, like a greener Surreal. Love the compacts for them, too. I got the Alpha Girl beauty powder. Not sure how much I will use it, but the packaging was too cute. It's the girly-girl in me.

For the lips, I was a mix of happy and disappointed. I only got the Bonus Beat l/g, mostly because I love Fleshpot. If you have the original Fleshpot, I'd say this one is more opaque and slightly warmer. I love Fleshpot original, but sometimes it looks a tad ashy, even on this pale lady. So, I cannot wait to try this new version. There were two die hard Fleshpot lovers there and both liked it better, too. I also got the Lollipop Loving as it's such a unique color. The Melrose Mood was awful in my eyes (though slightly more like what I was hoping this collection would be, crazy bright). I liked the Hollywood Nights, but it's a dup for the Full Fushia from the Pro collection; I love the packaging, but not enough to get a color I rarely wear.

I also checked out Strobe and got the clear gloss, mostly to use over my dark matte colors. Today I am wearing Snow Orchid, a Pro l/s that looks like a combo between the new Hollywood Nights and Melrose Mood. I looked at the new blushes, but none were grab worthy for me. And I got a Chocolate Brown piggie to add to my piggie collection - it was a LE that the store got and their last one in the drawer.

Back to piggies, I was VERY disappointed in the piggies for Heatherette. I already have the two piggies and the Reflects Gold. I don't have the 3D silver, but how often would I actually use it? I had hoped they would get some rocking new piggies for this collection.

So, there is my long winded commentary. Heatherette is a good collection as far as a release, but not a good collection worthy of Heatherette.
