MAC + Naturally Collection

 Hey Everyone!  Got my hands on the MAC Naturally Collection...Yaaay!  I had been looking forward to the release of this collection, mainly for the mineralized blushes!  I am a blush fiend.  I can't help it.  Blushes are a major weakness of mine :)
So what do I think about the few items I purchased from this collection...
First, lets talk about the blushes.  I was impressed by the new formulation of the MAC mineralized blushes.  All 3 of the blushes were finely milled and smooth to the touch.  To add, they all had wonderful color payoff with just one swipe.  I absolutely love the blush in Subtle Breeze,  I am roughly a NC40 (MAC foundation) and this color looks extremely natural and lovely on my skin tone.  It is more of a blue based pink, but it translates as a  natural flush on the skin.  As for Early Morning, I personally felt as though it was a little too dark and coral/orange for my skin.  I can still use it, but I have to make sure not to use a heavy hand.  Otherwise, it can easily go from looking nice to making me look like a clown.  I will be keeping it, but it is not one of my favorites.  I opted out of getting the third blush in Fresh Honey.  I have too many apricot colors that mimic this blush that are already a part of my collection.  And I felt it wasn't something that stood out to me as original.
I also picked up one of the lipsticks in A Perfect Day.  This is a beige pink nude lipcolor, that has a amplified creme finish.  Y'all know how I feel about MAC's amplified creme lipsticks!  I love and can't get enough of them.  I really like the fact that with amplified creme's, what you see is what you get!  The color itself is a tad bit lighter than I normally like, but when paired with a complementing gloss it looks great.
All these goodies can be found at
Like always the swatches are below and you can click on the pic to enlarge.

What did y'all pick up from this collection and did the products live up to your expectations?

Have a Great Day!
