Shop -n- Tell : MAC collections

101 in the makeup-a-holic handbook is that you must research MAC cosmetics collections throughout the year. I for one have most of the MAC collection release dates written in my agenda, and previous to the release date look at the promo pictures and plan what i'm interested in buying and try to save up enough for what I want.... I know crazyyy right!! I have a problem! 
Lately MAC has been going CrAy CrAy releasing new collections every month. This month, is no exception. 3 collections have come out 12/26/11 so I had to rush into my MAC counter & store to check the collections out. 
 The Collections that came out are called : Tour De Fabulous, Daphne Guinness, and Metal X
My most awaited one being Daphne Guinness because MAC finally decided to re-release the blush ombres that I was dying to get. (even though they didn't releas the coral-ly one I really wanted)
1. MAC - Embrace Me lip pencil, 2. MAC - Style Packed Lipglass , 3. MAC - Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre , 4. MAC sample - Pro longwear concealor
So what did I get you are asking!..... or maybe you aren't.
From the Daphne Guinness collection I bought only one thing, the Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre, which is a nice shimmery cool pink. You can actually see subtle blue shimmers throughout the blush, and how gorgeous does this look in the packaging!!! the ombre affect makes it look so beautiful, fading from the pink to the purple. LOVE it!!!!
From the Tour de Fabulous collection I bought two things, the Style Packed Lipglass, which is a bright fuchsia opaque gloss. I also bought the Embrace Me Lip Pencil, which is a bright pink fuschsia  pink pencil. If you have the Magenta Lip Pencil from MAC and love it you will be obsessed with this one, this is pretty much a straight hot pink lip pencil, with amazing color payoff!! 

By the way if you didn't know this before MAC gives samples!!!!! Hallejuh probably the only thing you will get for free from there. All you have to do is ask, I believe you can get samples of there concealors, foundations, and lipsticks! So I got a sample of the Pro Longwear Concealor so I can try it out and see if I like it before purchasing a full size.
 So going to the mall how could I resist a good sale?!?!?! NEVERRR!!!!!! I couldn't just go to one store; so I went into Macy's where everything was 25-75% off!!! Talk about a good sale!! So I found this amazing Glittery Betsey Johnson Wallet, I thought it was perfect and the price even better, at 50% off the original price!!! WINNING!! <3
