Happy 4th of July! Upcoming Mac Collections

First of all, I would like to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July, may it also be safe for everyone! My whole family minus me went to the beach so I was left home alone babysitting two doggies and playing around with my makeup stash. I also went to Mac and was able to see the upcoming Mac Collections that are to be released on July 10th.

Of the upcoming three collections I think that Sonic Chic is the best. All of the blushes are veryyyy pretty and super pigmented. Perfect for anyone! I want ALL but I settled on getting Gentle, Gleeful and Pleasantry. Electroflash is also exciting but I would say at least half of it was dupeable colors...nothing really exciting. The ones that stood out to me were...

1. Hot Contrast: the black side of it is super a glossy black. I don't believe that there's another dupe for it honestly. The other side consist of silver and is super bright.

2. Sea & Sky: the blue side is a intense blue very pretty there's a possible dupe for it but its like the perfect Royal Blue. The other side consist of different shades of blue.

3. Green Fresh Mix: the green side kind of reminds of me a lighter springtime skipper from the Barbie collection. The other side consist of different shades of green.

4. Odd Couple: the purple side is insanely pigmented and super vibrant. Kind of looks like the purple side of Mi' lady but more vibrant and less silver.

***NOTE: also remember that the swirly side with the different colors has much versatility to it. It seems like many people are just using that whole side as a shade but like Ether I used the lighter colors in the pot as a highlighter the darker colors as a crease color. I think that I did a complete eye look with Ether.

New View was okay...its great for people who don't have a highlighter or contour shade but I might pass up on this because I want soo much of everything else:P

Here's a pic of last year July 4th...memories..damn time is sure moving fast.

Forget blushes. I am all for Cult of Cherry...the quads are going to be amazing!

Having said that, I'm probably going to pick up one or two from Snic Chic, lol. I'm not too fond of the MES, so I probably won't get anything from it.
