Another MAC Haul (DSquared2)

Here I go again with the MAC purchases. It's not my fault MAC comes out with a collection every week! But seriously, this should be it for a while. Where have we heard this before? Anywho, moving right along.

I got some things from the Dsquared² collection, the regular line, and a Dazzleglass Creme.

Dsquared² 165 Tapered Cheek/Highlight Brush
I haven't used this yet, but I will probably use it for contouring and highlighting. And I would like to see how well it applies blush as I had been looking for a smaller blush brush and this may be it.

Dsquared² Lip Erase in Dim 
This simply pales out the color of your natural lip pigmentation. It's a fleshy beige shade. It's matte meaning it is shine and texture free. You could wear it just like that, just matte, or I would put a nude and light pink color gloss over top of it. It's a great product for those who love the nude lip.

Dsquared² Lipstick in Nude Rose
It's a pretty, light neutral pink that goes on sheer. I find you can't really build up the color too much as it is quite sheer. It is different from Hue, for example, as it's not as pigmented, Nude Rose is glossier, and not as pale. I really like it though, it'll be good.

Dazzleglass Creme in My Favorite Pink
This is a pretty bright pink in the tube but I don't think it's really that pigmented on the lips. It may be more pigmented than the original Dazzleglasses. However, I've had other glosses in which are a lot more pigmented and brighter than the Cremes like the L'Oreal Paris Colorjuice in Tutti Fruitti. Although the Colorjuice is quite sticky and does not have that sprakle like the Dazzleglass. I chose My Favorite Pink because it's a light blue pink, which might make my teeth appear whiter! What I've done is put a bit of the Lip Erase on and then the Dazzleglass to make the pink appear brighter.

Eyeshadow in Satin Taupe
This color is a taupe brown with silvery bronze and I love this shade! I'm so happy I've finally got it! I think this will be an everyday color. I would probably pair it with Esspresso and Shroom for an everyday look.  Pretty!

Let me know if you've picked up anything from any of the recent collections and how you like them (or not). Thanks for reading lovelies!
