MAC Venomous Villains - Eyes

Yes, I'm a little late to the party here. Better late than never though.
Even though I didn't get everything in this collection, it is still a big haul with a fair few pics so it's easier to do this in two.

First up, the eyeshadows.
There are six regular-sized shadows with this collection & two Mineralize shadows. Since Carbon is already a permanent shadow, I skipped getting it. It's already in my collection & I didn't feel compelled to buy it again just for the packaging.

MAC Pro Longwear - My Verdict

Rather than rushing straight into reviewing this, I held off and wore it for several days to get a more accurate picture on how this foundation worked for me.
It's probably helpful to note skin-type here; Combination (oily t-zone, normal elsewhere). The t-zone is what makes or breaks a foundation for me.

Illamasqua Haul

A very small haul, just two items in fact. These are from the new Art of Darkness collection. Pure Pigment in Alluvium & Liquid Metal in Stoic.

I've collected a few of the Illamasqua pigments but this is my first Liquid Metal. Usually, cream shadows aren't a high priority on my list but the colour of Stoic was just too beautiful to resist.

MAC Pro Longwear - fresh from the box.

I confess, I have a terrible problem. I'm a foundation junkie. I've tried quite a number now from various brands & even if I find one I truly love, I still get the urge to try new foundations.
At the moment, my favourite is Armani's Lasting Silk. Great colour match, nice finish & good wear-time. Upon hearing about MAC's newest offering, Pro Longwear, I felt that uncontrollable urge to go forth & purchase.

A Bad Romance that's oh so good.

Glittery polishes are a weakness of mine, right up there with smoky eye colours. Add a black base in to the mix and I'm guaranteed to start drooling uncontrollably. Enter Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance.

Kat Von D - Love and Fury palette

Bit of a quandry here, I've seen this referred to as the Adora palette & as Love and Fury. Since it's titled Love and Fury on the back of the palette, I'll stick with that one (it is part of the Adora collection I believe).

As usual, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous. Rubbery yet sturdy case with beautiful graphics on the outside. Inside, it boasts a decently-sized mirror, eight shadows & two small double ended brushes.
