It was so busy. I hate being near a MAC counter when it's heaving, let alone in shoebox sized Pro store. I bought Off The Page e/s from Make Up Art and Sharp Focus lipstick from MAC in High Def a few weeks ago so was only after a few bits.
From Make Up Art Cosmetics I bought:
Violet Trance e/s
Full of Fuschia technakohol
By the way, can I just say what a nightmare Violet Trance is to work with using your fingers! It refuses to swatch on skin to skin contact. I think the oils in your fingers dry it out and then it starts acting up. Fear not though, it's fine when using a firm eye brush on it. Its a nice grape matte purple. I'm loving Haunting e/s too. I was gonna skip it but am glad I didn't now.
For some reason he Pro Store didn't get either of the two blushes that come with Make Up Art in their delivery (I'm sure they have them now) so they were missing from the display. Miss Virtue thought it'd be clever to buy the last Colour Matters (bright lime) technakohl so I couldn't buy that either.
After the Illamasqua event Miss Virtue and I went to Selfridges before going to grab a bite to eat and I B2M'ed at the MAC counter for So Chaud lipstick which is a bright orange matte shade. Chaud is what everyone calls my boyf (Richaud) so I was quite amused at this exchange. He was quite chuffed he has a MAC lipstick named after him when I showed him so I'm sure he'll apprciate that I now own it - haha!
Friday morning I was on the phone like a crack addict to its dealer ordering the rest of my planned purchases. They were waiting for me when I got home from work today.

Play on Plums MES
Earthly Riches MES
I've been stalling on the MES's for months and was forced into action when Earthly Riches showed up in the Goodbyes section on the MAC site. The Pro store had sold out of both so I was relieved to still get hold of them over the phone.
Right that's me done until I land in NY next week. I have a couple of bits that Chaud's ordered for me already from Sephora and I'll be focusing on buying brushes when I'm there. I think I'm reaching the peak of my make up collection. I have SO much to work my way through.
When Style Black is released all I want is a back up of Volcanic Ash Exfoliator (review post coming shortly), the thermal mask and Feline eye kohl (which I've managed to lose! Pissed!).
What have you bought from Make Up Art and the other collections?
