In The Groove Collection/Dazzle Lipstick!

So I have finally gotten this post up!~I've been wanting to get this posted for a long time since I purchased these items from Nordstrom on the 8th. I did a pre-order at the MAC counter when I was in the store one day. I am sad to say that I did not get Stereo Rose because I thought it would be too dark for my fair skin tone. Now looking back, I probably should have purchased it as well because everyone's going crazy over it!~Oh well! Instead, I chose Petticoat and By CandleLight MSF. I'm really happy with both of these and think they are great for summer. They both give a really pretty glow to the face when applied. Pictures are shown below:

Petticoat Mineralize Skinfinish

Love this so much!~It's a gorgeous pink, gold/shimmery color that works great as a blush. I've been wearing it on my cheeks each day and it gives a great glowy look. I chose one that had less of the darker red veining because I wanted more of a pink tone. So I would suggest asking at MAC to see a few different Petticoat MSFs before purchasing so you can choose one that's right for your skintone. If you are lighter maybe go with less darker veining, and if you have a darker skintone you may want to get one with more darker veining. It is also very pigmented, so for me I apply with a light hand using my Mac 129 blush brush.

By Candlelight Mineralize Skinfinish

This is a really pretty MSF! It works great as a highlighter just above the cheekbones and really gives a pretty glow. It also adds a little bronzing effect as well since it is a tan, gold color. This product is a little on the sheer side so you can apply alot without looking crazy highlighted. I've been using this everyday with Petticoat and find that it looks really pretty. I've been first applying By Candlight just above my cheekbones with the side/flat part of the 129 brush, and then with the tip of the 129, applying Petticoat. Love these two products together!

Nordstrom Exclusive:
Digipops Collection

Dazzle Lipstick
Win Win

Loving this color! It is a very pretty bright pink with fine specks of glitter built in. It has amazing staying power and I find that the glitter is not annoying or grainy at all. I did a swatch below and had to scrub my hand to get the swatch off!~This collection debuts first at Nordstrom stores and then it should appear in most MAC stores/counters in August. There are also a range of colors from corals, to purples, deeper reds, gold, etc.

Swatch of Win Win. It looks actually lighter on camera, it appears to be a brighter color in person.
