Beauty | Mac Electric Wonder Collection...


I've never been a girl who has been obsessed with MAC Limited Edition Collections. Yes, there has been a couple I have dabbled with in the past - namely the Venomous Villians collection (my first foray into MAC) and the Alluring Aquatics collection. Since then nothing has truly taken my fancy...until now.

One of their latest limited edition collection 'Electric Wonder' has quite possibly got me well and good. I mean the packaging in itself is dreamy - who doesn't love pastel shades and marble? Also most items are nudes and you know how I love nudes.

The collection itself is made up of 19 individual pieces: 5 Lipsticks, 5 Lipglasses, 2 Brushes, 2 Bronzers, 2 Eyeshadow Palettes, 2 Iridescent Powders and a Highlighter Palette.

As much as I would have liked to pick up the entire collection, I only thought about purchasing pieces that I would use day in day out. So with that in mind, I picked up two items: Natural Born Leader Lipstick and Natural Vice Eyeshadow palette.


Natural Born Leader Lipstick:

Lipsticks are one of my beauty weaknesses - I absolutely love them. In particular I have a weakness for reds and every day pinks. Anything that is wearable day in day out is my thing.

When I saw that MAC had launched a red in their Electric Wonder collection, I was there. The red in question was 'Natural Born Leader' which is an almost Berry Matte. Like all MAC lipsticks it has that trademark vanilla smell and lasts long time before it needs to be replenished.

Natural Vice Eyeshadow palette:

MAC eyeshadows have always been one of my favourites to wear due to their staying power as well as the colour payoff. This palette is no exception: the shadows apply beautifully and last a long time. Needless to say, this palette has now become a daily staple in my make up routine.

This palette is made up of 12 full size eyeshadows which come in a variety of finishes: 5 Matte, 3 Frost, 2 Satin & 2 Veluxe Pearl. The colours are complimentary to each other and range from light to dark meaning that you have the option to make the perfect smoky eye if you really want to. In addition, it has the added bonus of a huge mirror.
