First Impressions: MAC Style Warriors Review, First Impressions, Product Photos
Here's a quickie sneaky peek at MAC Style Warriors which officially releases May 28th. It's pretty much widely available everywhere at the moment since it was available for pre-order and MAC had parties and such going on for it's launch! MAC Pro had it weeks in advance too although I didn't hope over for a gander, shame on the Muse.
The Muse is hauling more of what was released shortly but this is what she has so far to show you. Just a bit of makeup porn to tide you over until I do my full review!
One thing I love about MAC Style Warriors is that beautiful bronze look but the touches of popping color scattered throughout that break up all that tanned skin. Quite nice!
Two shadows from the collection, Vibrant Grape and Bright Future, are definately just the pop I'm talking about. Bright Future is a loud, buttery yellow and Vibrant Grape is a stunning purple.
Heavy on the bronze cheeks chicas! MAC Style Warriors Bronzing Powder in Solar Riche is a deep, dark bronze shade sure to give a crispy look to skin! As for the Muse she tames it with a little cheek stain thrown under it or sometimes on top so it looks like an interesting bronze, flushed look!
Plenty more bronze where that came from with MAC Blush in Eversun. This one is a little orange, a little brown, and plenty of bronze all mixed in tight. Again, I find it's best and most flattering for my medium fair skin when I use a touch of cheek stain under suck a bronze color.
For the lips a Brave New Bronze lipstick looks slightly boring but built up it's a flattering nude peach lip shade.
Not everyone can rightfully pull of purple but Purple Rite may be making a special appearance on your MAC Style Warriors wish list!
Loving MAC Lipglass in Gold Rebel! Such a gorgeous sparkling peachy gold creation. Not so sure about Style Warrior though...whoa...it's nearly black! Eep!
Now for my favorite part, MAC Lustre Drops! Three colors are available and so far I have one, Bronze Hero. Love, love this product. Great for multitasking as cheek color or mixing with shadow and pigments. Really an interesting product and looking forward to hauling the other two shades!
That's all for now folks! More hauling ahead from MAC Style Warriors so this one is to be continued! What I have tried from the collection I am loving. Quite a few items in the collection are keepers. I'm looking forward to doing some looks with the items I do have and heading to MAC to haul the rest of the collection.
What do you think so far?

Sneak Peek: MAC Naked Honey Collection Review, Swatches, and First Impressions
As June quickly approaches so does the release of MAC Naked Honey, an exciting new, buzz worthy (get it? buzz! I'm such a damn comedian aren't I?) collection. I'm always quite the little fan girl for MAC Summer Collections and so far I am loving
all I have seen from both MAC Naked Honey and MAC Style Warriors.
I'll be giving you a very brief sneaky peek from MAC Naked Honey after the jump!
With plenty of golds and bronze on the menu MAC Naked Honey is most definitely Summer-worthy cosmetic goodness. It is a small amount of color in this collection thought and most of the release concentrating on plenty of interesting body care items such as shower gels, lotions, potions, etc....
I did a quickie look yesterday using three items from the MAC Naked Honey launch that I got to test out. So far I like what I see. I tried out MAC High-light Powder in Golden Nectar, MAC Lipglass in Buzz, and MAC Eye Shadow in Creme de Miel.
Two MAC High-Light Powders are being released, Golden Nectar being the darker shade of the two. Regardless if it's dark or not it was flattering on me. You can easily double this up as a contouring tool if you desire and even a bronzer if you want. It's a deep, bronze shade with a hint of golden shimmer. Sadly thought the golden shimmer is only an over spray and for the most part the powder did apply matte to my cheeks. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing as I did like the way it looked on. I used it as a blush/bronzer combo on my cheeks in the below picture.
Three MAC Lipglasses shades will release with MAC Naked Honey one of which I tried was Buzz. Another fine Summer shade as it's a dark copper that hints at being almost brown, very nice when paired up with Golden Nectar.
And finally I tried out MAC Eyeshadow in Creme De Miel which is a velvety gold shade. This applies a tad chalky but for the most part it blends out nicely and can be paired with fabulous coppery, bronze looks. Below I used it on it's own on my lids.
Overall, I like what I've seen so far from MAC Naked Honey and I look forward to testing out the rest to see what I'll haul from this collection.
