About 3/4 weeks ago (once I found out the day that Riri ❤ MAC will be in store) I went to the MAC counter in Nordstrom and asked them about putting items aside for me. It was possible – she’d call me in the morning, get what I wanted, she’d have to run the sale over the phone (as I’d be guaranteed the items) and then I’d just have to pick them up. She actually called the day before and took my list that in the morning she’d just have to run my card. Success! The only upset part is I decided after I wanted the “Who’s That Chick” lipstick after but it was already sold out. Womp!
When I decided to do this post, I realized I hadn’t even done one on Rihanna’s first collection with MAC so I’ll be showing you my full collection. I was trying to get some natural light when shooting these pics and my couch had the perfect spot, as it’s not a very flat surface, I used my trays from home as I thought they’d be most fitting since Rihanna and I are from Barbados :). Shall we begin?
From the first collection I bought everything. Yea, I wasn’t wasting time being picky, therefore I have:
- Powder Blush in Hibiscus Kiss
- Lustre Drops in Barbados Girl
- Retro Matte Lipstick in Riri Woo, Riri Boy and Heaux
I haven’t used Heaux yet but I’ve used Riri Woo and Riri Boy over the Summer and loved them. I’m yet to use the Lustre Drops and Powder Blush as well. Right now I just look at how pretty they look :).
With the second collection I had to be choosy, otherwise I would’ve spent over $500 getting everything and that was not an option. But I wanted to get things I knew I’d use:
- Eyeshadow x 4 in Her Cocoa
- Cream Color Base in Diamonds
- Powder Blush in Bad Girl Gone Good
- Veluxe Brow Liner in Deep Dark Brunette
- Extended Play Gigablack Lash mascara
- 282SE Shader brush
- Liquidlast Liner in Point Black
- Lipglass Lip gloss in Riri Woo
- Matte Lipstick in Nude
- Retro Matte Lipstick in Talk That Talk
I haven’t used any of these as yet and I only managed to swatch the lipsticks from this set. Talk That Talk is a little deep but Halloween is around the corner and it’s Fall so who knows when I’ll pull it out :).
If you were unlucky with getting anything from her first two collections, MAC said on their website that she’ll be having a Holiday collection as well. You know who will have it also :). Keep your eyes and ears open for that one. If you scored anything from either of the first two I hope you’re enjoying having them as much as I am.
