SPOTTED: MAC Carine Roitfeld & Marilyn Monroe & Office Hours Collection (Limited Edition)

Look what I’ve spotted at Pavillion Shopping Mall, Kuala Lumpur! New limited edition collections seen at MAC Cosmetics.

Yes! There’s 3 collections seen on the title above so where’s the third one? Well, I enquired about the office collection on its availability (as I was anxiously looking around for an Office Hours Collection display but none seen) and the MAC sales advisor informed that only partial collection is available. Took me to another corner and said this is what MAC Malaysia brought in and to my dismay *gasps*, *eye balls rolling* and a stab to muh’ heart (oh so dramatic! just kidding about the stabbing part), only 8 pro long wear blushes available for sale. Are you kidding me!? Apparently, they only brought in based on the Malaysian market. Boo Hoo! I was looking forward to the Pro long wear lipglasses and eyeshadows. What a bummer! And, since the sales advisor was just standing next to me (prolly wondering if I’m gonna purchase anything or just touching all their stuff), it would be just be plain weird to whip my phone out and snap away.

I did quick swatches of a few products that looked so pretty but ended up walking out of the MAC store empty-handed because….

  1. The eyeshadows from the Marilyn Monroe were quite sheer in terms of pigmentation and/or opacity.
  2. The eyeshadow palettes from the Carine Roitfeld collection were OK but the colors didn’t have a WOW factor to me at all.
  3. The pro long wear blushes from the Office Hours collection were so pretty but I felt that I already had MAC blushes that are so similar to the ones I liked.

Items mentioned were the ones I was interested in at first sight and did quick swatches. Other products from all collections not mentioned  just didn’t fascinate me as much.  Did anyone purchase anything from these collections? Do share your reviews and swatches!

Wasn’t a bad day though… Coz’ I spotted the Urban Decay Vice Palette at Sephora Starhill ! Stay tune for muh’ next post. You might just see a photo of the palette. Till then, toodles!

Disclaimer: All products were purchased by me unless stated otherwise. Nevertheless, I will provide my honest opinions even if the products were provided for consideration. I am picky and particular in that way.
