Mac Fantasy of Flowers Australia

I have been long awaiting the arrival of the Mac 'Fantasy of Flowers collection' simply because I love the idea of colors from a garden bed e.g greens, reds, pinks & yellows.

Not surprisingly Australia had to wait an extra couple of months before the collection would be released on our shores.

Which I'm quite happy with as it gives me a chance to read up on other reviews & see all those pretty swatches. 

If your a lover of Mac's lustre lipsticks & mineralize formula in some of their products than this collection may just be perfect for you.

I'm not big on sheer makeup as I tend to go with bright or very dark colors but amongst the excitement of the products being released in store & at Mac counters April 1st 2014 I thought a review would fit well for anyone considering these purchases.

**Update: It has been noted that Mac have started selling this collection today at selected stores

I'm very selective of what I purchase out of collections, I don't always buy everything & there were only a handful of items that really stood out to me.

Lets start off with what is available and the price list:

There are two halves of this collection with one showcasing purples, pink hues & brights to the second half with different colored greens that is reminiscent of walking through a garden bed with a cup of tea on a sunny Sunday morning. With such amazing colors it is definitely right on point with the winter purple & violet shades that have hit clothing & makeup stores this season.

My purchases from this collection are: 

- Lustre Lipstick 'Heavanly'

- Lustre Lipstick 'Rose Lily'
- Lustre Lipstick 'Snap Dragon'
- Mineralize Skin Finish 'Perfect Topping'
- Mineralize Blush 'Azalea'

Although there were other items I'd love to have purchased (for example the purple fluid line) it just didn't seem necessary as I'd prefer to save that money for the Lorde Collection.

All up I paid $162.00 & with the coupon code 'FANTASY' I received free shipping.

I did have a minor panic attack when I forgot to process my order with express shipping but in the end it wasn't needed. I ordered last Thursday/mid morning 27/3 & my package arrived in Melbourne City Monday 31/3 at 10am.
Working in the city does help for packages to be delivered a lot quicker :).

-  Rose Lily - Sheer Pastel Pink

- Heavenly Hybrid - Mid Tone Berry

- Snap Dragon - Mid Tone Blue Pink

- Mineralize Skin Finish - Perfect Topping

- Mineralize Blush - Azalea in the afternoon 

I haven't had the chance to wear these products & really test them out but from the swatches I have done I'm enjoying the cool Spring type feel to this collection.
The MSF & Blush are incredibly shimmering & will work perfectly in the spring, just how they were intended to be. 

So now that the preview of the items available tomorrow have been seen who will be lining up to purchase this collection??
I know il be back in store as I forgot to purchase 'Stereo Rose' which looks like an amazing MSF.

Let me know via Instagram or Twitter your thoughts on this collection & if you will be spending the money on it.

As Always,
