My MAC Eyeshadow Collection & Style Warriors Haul

Hi everyone! I hope that you all are doing well on this beautiful day! Well, I had a Youtube subscriber request to see my MAC eyeshadow collection. So, I will share that with you all. Now, like you will hear in my video I do not own a huge MAC eyeshadow collection like some of the other gurus on Youtube. The reason is that I like some many other brands too. The brands that I own in my makeup collection range from: MAC, Nars, Cargo, Urban Decay, NYX, Coastal Scents, Smashbox, Bare Escentuals, and others. I am such a Chameleon when it comes to makeup brands. I like change and seeing what other brands like to offer too! So, I guess my point is to be versatile!! Anyways. . . Here is a looksee into my MAC collection of eyeshadows:



Helly Kitty Too Dolly Quad Colors: Yogurt, Romping, Too Dolly & Stately Black


Colors From My Pro Palette: Soba, 100 strokes, Embark, Grain, Flip, Honeylust, Swish,

Now, there you have it! My small MAC collection of eyeshadows. I have to warn you though this collection will be growing over the next few month for sure!! Next to follow are pictures and swatches from my haul of MAC’s Style warrior Collection. I was so excited that this collection finally came out here in the Austin area. Once my son was picked up for pre-k I drove to the Domain like a crazy woman and made my claim on the following items!! I also added another palette to my collection with aquadisiac, and fluidtrack too!
