Mini Mac Haul - Charlotte Olympia Collection

I would apologise for the pictures being packaging intensive but it's so beautiful I couldn't imagine anyone would mind (unless you do in which case, soz).

I very rarely seek out new MAC launches and I'm definitely not a collector of limited edition products but a collaboration that includes matte red lipsticks will always guarantee a purchase or two from me. Of the 3 lipstick shades that are part of this collection I decided to go for Leading Lady Red which is a deep blood red with cool undertones and Starlett Scarlet which is a brighter, true red. Both are a matte finish, like I said, and I haven't had a chance to test them properly yet but from swatching them they seem fairly creamy so there is hope that they'll be comfortable to wear.

The next pair of products are nail varnishes. I'm not gonna lie this was a complete impulse purchase shallowly based on the packaging. I've never tried any MAC nail varnishes so I'm glad I finally have the chance to, especially when they look as gorgeous as these ones do. Again, there were 3 available; Good Old Days (pictured) which is a creamy beige, To Have Or Have Not (pictured) - a bright orange red and the only one I didn't get, Old Fashioned, is a burgundy shade. In the spirit of Summer I intentionally left out the darker shade but I do ever so slightly regret not picking it up now especially as it's sold out (sob).

MAC get a thousand gold stars from me for the packaging of this collection - I am obsessed with it and I can't wait to put the lipsticks to the test. There will be a review up as soon as possible.

Have you got anything from this collection? Are you a collector of limited edition MAC products?
