MAC Dame Edna Collection: Review, Swatches
Hallo Possums!" As mirthfully minx-like and tongue-in-chic as her dazzling persona, Dame Edna's eponymous limited-edition colour collection reveals the wit of her makeup passions...Like our muse, it's "spectacular"!
Overall, MAC releases yet another disappionting collection to close out the 2008 year. Much better than the Chill collection, I think you'll find one or two worthwhile products to take home from this limited edition release espically if MAC's been burnin a hole in your pocket from these un-impressive collections.
The lipsticks were the obvious stand-outs. Smooth, creamy and packed with loads of color. Wisteria and Royal Tour eyeshadow quads were the most disappioning. Both trios along with the Hi-light powders lacked good color pay-off and texture.
My Haul: Gladiola lipstick, Hot Frost lipglass and Varicose Violet nail polish.
Wisteria and Royal Tour Eyeshadow Trios.
Gladiole, Coral Polyp and Kango Rouge Lipstick. Still debating whether to pick up Coral Polyp or not. All lipsticks had fabulous color payoff. You really can't go wrong picking up one or two.
Hot Frost, Spendid and Possum Nose Pink lipglass.
Spectacle and What a Dame Hi-Lite powders. Took several swipes to achieve any kind of color pay-off.
While visiting the Mall, I was able to get a sneak peek at Dior's Spring 09 Polishes also. So, make sure you check those out.
MAC's Vericose Violet is a semi sheer lilac purple with blue irisdescent shimmer. Originally, I wasn't going to pick this up, but the MA's convinced me other wise after swatching. Asiatique is your basic cherry red creme that's pretty standard and blah. I'd say pass on that one. Both shades are only available for a limited time.
I'll be posting Varicose Violet as one of my NOTD this week. Stay tuned.
The Dame Edna collection is now available at MAC stores and online.

I ordered a couple things form this collection. Gladiola, Hot Frost, Splendid and Varicose Violet (which looks awesome on you). After seeing Temptalia's eye with The Royal Tour I want that set also! I am more excited about the "Blonde" collection coming out though. I do wish they would stop putting out so many and do maybe 8-10 a year instead, it's way too much!
