Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Right here in Singapore we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but any reason for a good meal is a cause for celebration.

The Gareth Pugh x MAC collection  was released on 23 November in USA. Guess who went ahead and bought too much makeup?

Prior to being at the store I only had intentions on getting the makeup pouch cause it looks spacious enough for my makeup. Upon reaching the store, I was sold on how awesome the packaging looks and how beautiful some of the colours are.

The iridescence of the nail polishes got me really excited. Pictured here are Hyper and Ascension.

I am a HUGE fan of nude lipsticks, I never really believed I’d look good in any other colours but the purple lipstick (featured in the print) is too gorgeous to pass up. Purple and plum are very “Fall” colours and who knows, I might try and pull it off somehow.

Pictured here are the colours Restrict and Fervent.

I also got the pigments in Guise. The rest of the eyeshadow colours weren’t fully released yet for some reason and the blush wasn’t really suited for my skintone.

And here’s the pouch that got me waking up at 8am in the morning to go to the MAC store. Apparently, I wasn’t the first one who got there. This pouch was the last piece they had in the store. >:3

For those interested, this is how it looks like inside. The pouch features handy slots for your brushes and a compartment for all the makeup. I don’t have a measuring tape but I’d estimate it to be about 17-20cm?

The zipper pull is awesomely detailed.

The collection will be out in Singapore in December exclusively at Tangs. I hope those interested will be able to get their hands on it.

    I love Daphne Guinness but I feel that the colours in that collection are a little too cool for my skintone. :<

    Thank you sooooo much Arissa! I have spent hours trying to find pictures of the inside of the make up pouch, without success until I found your post! Now I know it has a zipped mesh compartment to hold my makeup I will definitely be buying this, luckily there are still some available in the UK – so thanks again!

    I was trying to look for pictures of the inside before buying them but I couldn’t, I guess someone else could use that information too. Glad you found the blog! 😀
