MAC Spring Forecast Haul

I said at the beginning of the week my mum had been kind enough to order me a few things from MAC's new collection Spring Color Forecast which launched in the UK this week. She ordered me 3 things that I really wanted and they came today :) The first thing she got me was the Ombre Blush in Azalea Blossom

The first thing I noticed is how big this is - easily the size of the MSF's it's huge - here it is compared to So Sweet, So Easy Cremeblend Blush

And here it is swatched the light is a bit strong here so the colours are a bit paler - oh and ignore the cat (Tallulah!) scratch
From Left To Right - Pink Part, Lilac Part, Swirled Together

I also got Nanogold eyeshadow - I love this and it's a great addition to my neutrals palette

and finally and most surprisingly I got the Crushed Metal Pigment Stack 2 - oh wow once you get past the cheapy packaging (similar to BellaPierre minerals review coming soon) these are some gorgeous colours - my pics really aren't doing them justice they are that nice (oh and just for the record they are applied dry and on bare skin - imagine them wet faints!)

So there you go I'm pretty pleased with these bits to be honest - hope these pics are helpful - this collection is online now and should be on counter tomorrow - any questions please ask xx
