MAC Buys & possibilities

**picture heavy

Hello lovelies,

So I was super excited for MAC In The Groove Collection to purchase only 2 MSF's that I have been wanting MAC to re-promote because of the rave about them. But with that not my excitement came with a disappointment. I went to the MAC store early the day the items were released in stores, so has to beat the rush of the sold out online infamous Stereo Rose MSF but my MAC was empty and had stock loads of it. I told you MUA I wanted Stereo Rose, Petticoat MSF and Band of Roses blush. Nothing else interested me not even the sheer lipsticks, because on my lips they were super sheer and the lipglass: 'blah' (aint a fan of them).

Now here is my mini mini MAC  buy and of course you know me, I have to search my stash for possible dupes, where I found some items that were close to the shades but not right on 'dot'.

Here are pictures:

Clockwise: MAC: Stereo Rose MSF, Petticoat MSF & Band of Roses blush

Top: MAC Band of Roses blush: matte side, darker rose color & both blended together
Bottom: Petticoat & Stereo Rose MSF's

42 e/s & blush Generic palette: bottom middle color similar to matte fuchsia side of  Band of Roses blush

L-R: Band of Roses (fuchsia color), 42 palette: bottom middle color & top middle color comparison

L-R: MAC Band of Roses, Jordana Redwood blush

Same order as above ( the colors aren't similar )

Petticoat MSF & Milani Glimmer Stripes: Berry (last 3 colors swiped togther)

L-R: Petticoat MSF & Milani Glimmer Stripes: Berry (last 3 colors swiped togther)

**Sorry no pictures of the products of Stereo Rose & Revlon Floral Affair blush: Hushed

L-R swatches: Stereo Rose, Revlon Floral Affair blush in Hushed: Pink color & Coral color

{Stereo Rose is somewhat similar to the coral color}

If you didn't get anything from the MAC collection but wanted to know cheaper substitutes, hopefully this will be of help to you and your pockets. Most of the items can be found at the drugstores minus the 42 palette which can be purchased on Ebay.

Be Fabulous!!



  1. I've been wearing Band of Roses the last 2 days and LOVE it. I need to stop being lazy and do a posts of all the stuff I got.

  2. LOL, that's why I didn'tt buy Band of Roses, it looked very dupable. I am dying to know what you think about Stereo Rose. I am not feeling it at all.

  3. Oh, wow! Great colors. I want!
