Retail Therapy: MAC

This is one of quite a few hefty makeup hauls I have to share with you, as I've been doing some serious retail therapy lately.  I've left the makeup untouched, as I wanted to share pictures (and hopefully swatches.....) of everything before I start seriously playing with them.  At this rate, I have a loooooong way to go.

But in any case, let's start with some MAC (well actually I started with MUFE but that's okay).  I received a gift card just because from somebody who is dear to me and understands my makeup whoring.  Funny thing is, I didn't really see anything that caught my eye from MAC but the more I looked, the more items I picked up.  Here's the damage:

I'm trying to expand my collection of lip liners, as I tend to use them a lot on clients.  I work on many different complexions and skin tones so I'm working on getting a variety of colors.
Half Red

I also picked up a couple lipsticks that I've had my eye on for a while, but decided to skip each time I made a trip to MAC.

Here's Love Joy, a mineralized blush, that I picked up on accident because I thought it was from one of the summer collections.  Not sure if I'll keep it.


When I went to the register, I noticed a beautiful sparkle on the MUA's lids and asked her what she had on her lids.  That's when I got suckered into buying two pressed pigments.

I've been working on a post about these babies, actually.  I don't see them in store anymore but hopefully you can still find them online.

I think I picked a couple of cult favorites here.  Have you guys tried any of these?  Let me know!
