MAC is really killing it with their recent releases.  I have barely just got over the gorgeous Snow Ball collection (you can check out these beauties on my Instagram)!  Now, I am gasping at the Lunar New Year collection releasing this month!  My poor heart…and wallet of course:)

Just look at the gorgeous packaging though!

The collection consists of an eye shadow palette, five lipsticks and a blush duo compact.

The palette contains a mixture of lustres, stains and matte shadows.  The shades are as follows:

  • Spirit of The Season, a soft sand (satin)
  • Georgia Peach, a cool peachy beige (matte)
  • Couplets, soft peachy beige (satin)
  • Auspicious, a warm deep brown with satin finish
  • Special Charm, a soft dusty pink (matte)
