MAC Originals Color Story
I've been reading so much about the Originals Collection that I'm an absolute walking encyclopedia about it by now! I know the colors, I know what collections they had previously been in, I've seen swatches, etc...etc...etc....
This has popped up on everyone (and their mum's) blog this week! It's MAC excitement and cosmetic whores (excuse you but I proudly call myself Cosmetic Whore thanks very much!) and junkies far and wide are absolutely rolling around breathlessly in joy that Parrot is back!
How long has it been since Parrot's been gone? 2-3 years or more? You can read my Ode to Parrot by clicking over here.
Now I'm not immune to the lure of Parrot by any means and I love her just as much as you or anyone else does but I have two pots that are carefully stashed away and guarded by rabid pitbulls in my beauty vault already so I'm thinking to myself do I really need another pot of Parrot and I'm listening to the voices in my head that are screaming HELL YES (I've been told it's ok if the voices speak in my head it's just if I answer them that I have to worry!).
So...I guess that means I'll be skipping my way over to the MAC counter to purchase another pot because obviously two pots aren't enough and god knows I'll live to be at least 70 or more hopefully and I KNOW I'll want a vibrant shade of aqua blue in my train case when I'm 60 and freaking hip beyond any means! And two pots won't get me through this lifetime never mind the next one so best get a 3rd pot as a backup JUST IN CASE. Plus who the bloody hell knows it might just turn into a solid gold piece later on in life when I need to sell it to fund my future child's college tuition.
It's not exactly smart to face the Holiday crowds just to nab a pot of Parrot even though we know it's well worth it. I'm strapping on my bullet proof vest to make my way into Nordie's to fight my way to the MAC counter and glance at the array of the Originals Collection!
This color story has me saying....
I'm a little bit shocked that nothing aside from Parrot is crying at me to buy it!
I'm somewhat disappointed in everything.
Someone slap me it can't be that I'm not fawning over MAC what's wrong with me? Where's my MAC spirit?! I'm MAC's biggest cheerleader what's going on!?
I guess some of the colors are just boring for me. I like more bold shadows and these aren't doing so much for me! Plus the piggies I already have and the reflects glitter aren't something I am entirely keen on.
You've read it everywhere by now but here's the low down on what's out this week:

Let's pick this apart a little and see what the Muse is contemplating.
I'm sad that the eyeshadows aren't all that and a bag of chips. They brought these back because everyone really, really, really, wanted them right? Normally the first thing that catches my eye when a new color story is released would be the shadows but aside from Parrot nothing is yelling at me! Maybe Daisychain?
Ok glosses. I see two that look interesting here those would be Avarice and Real Desire.
Lipsticks I really have to see in person to decide.
Pigments have 'em all already. Glitters mmm maybe yes maybe no.
Eyeliner and Mascara? Skip.
Wow I'm saving money left and right here kids!
Maybe when I see this in person I'll have a hard time saying no to it all but at the moment it's not what I expected at all! I expected more wow!
Money saved for another day and another MAC Collection!
Want any of it?
