MAC Heavenly Creature Collection Haul and Swatches

Hello everyone! So, as I'm sure most of you will know, MAC released their Heavenly Creature Collection at the end of last week! I've been excited for the launch of this collection for a while, so  ordered a couple of things!

Disclaimer: I saved up to buy things from this collection. Makeup is my hobby, its what I choose to spend my money on and I started this blog so my makeup wasn't just sitting in my drawers, instead it is providing information and inspiration for other beauty lovers! I'm also on a spending ban after buying these. Anyway, onto showing you what I got!

I got three things, two Mineralize Skinfinishes from the Heavenly Creature collection, and one Mineralize Eyeshadow from the MAC permanent collection. I've been wanting to try MAC's MSF's for so long now, so I was so happy to get my hands on these!

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Star Wonder - £21.50
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Light Year - £21.50
MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow in Young Punk - £16.50

First off, we have the MSF in Star Wonder. These are different from normal MAC MSF's in that they are several colours swirled together. Star Wonder is a beautiful mix of a pale gold, a bright peachy pink and a darker pink that leans towards being mauve.

Next up is Light Year MSF. This is what mainly attracted me to the Heavenly Creature collection, its a mixture of pale nudey peach, a darker pinky peach and a gold swirl.

Finally we have Mineralize Eyeshadow in Young Punk, which was originally part of the 'Style Black' collection in 2009, but was recently added to the permanent collection. Its the most beautiful eyeshadow I've ever come across. It has a black base, with lots of purple and magenta glitter and some silver. I don't wear dark eyes very often anymore, but I think I can easily say this is now my favourite eyeshadow ever.

Now, onto the swatches!

As you can see, Light Year is a beautiful peach with lots of gold shimmer. It is quite sheer, and needs to be built up on lighter skins, although it would make a beautiful highlighter on darker skintones. Star Wonder, which I didn't plan on buying at first, has turned out to be my favourite out of the two MSF's. Its a gorgeous peachy pink with again, lots of gold shimmer. Many bloggers have compared it to NARS's famous Orgasm blush. I don't own Orgasm, but I have compared it to another dupe I own, Benefit's Coralista, and they are very similar!

As you can see, Young Punk applies black with purple and magenta glitter. It can be applied either dry or wet, one of the benefits of the baked eyeshadows, and is so much more intense when applied wet. I've been applying it wet to my eyelid then using a little of it dry to help blend it out. I seriously can't get over how much I love this, I'm so glad its part of the permanent collection now!

I'm so chuffed with what I've bought from the collection. There are so many more things I'd happily have from the Heavenly Creatre collection, I have my eye on the blush in Supernova. But, as I'm on a spending ban, I'll just need to wait and hope the collection is still available after my birthday in August!

I hope you enjoyed this post! I still have lots of posts coming up, even though I'm on a spending ban I've got plenty of things to review for you from the last month of over-spending! xx
