So the latest collection that Mac has launched is Brunette Blond and Redhead (BBR). It's a collection that showcases certain colors per haircolor (natural haircolor of course). Does one necessarily have to stay within their hair color shade? NO! Mac has just picked the colors that will be more suiting in their opinion. I personally liked the certain shades from each haircolor. The ones that stood out to me were Henna(Brunette), French Cuff (Redhead) and 100 Stroke (Redhead).
Overall, the BBR Collection is very dupable especially since I'm a makeup fanatic and eyeshadow collector I have majority of the colors. If your still starting out this is certainly a collection to pay attention to. ALL the colors are pretty (but nothing amazing), suitable for everyone, and appropriate to use any time of day. These colors will be go-to colors because of those particular reasons. I hardly bust my Electric Eel (electric blue) yanno?!?
So I had my makeup done for the very first time by my favorite MUA at Mac near the college I attend. She's actually a manager. She's always been nice, friendly and she tunes me to what's going on with Mac. So I finally had time to get a makeover by her, might as well I knew I would be spending more than $50.

Icescape l/g^^ I swear everything creases on me! This is just 1 after the makeup. Anyone knows of a really good eyeshadow base? Trust me I've tried many.
My roommate liked the outcome. He said 'it's very easy on the eyes, very soft'. LOL my own personal makeup critic huh?! I do agree with him, these colors are dark but with a light hand it can be suitable for the daytime use. It's very well blended; a nice soft smokey eye.
I personally like my makeup darker and not as blended(if that makes sense). I like to see a gradual gradient change is what I'm saying I guess.
What did I get?
