Yummy411: Best MAC Collection?

BARBIE VS. FAFI
Over the years, MAC has teamed up with many celebrities to inspire and make collections. One of my favorites has been Barbie Loves MAC, where I was able to buy most of everything and absolutely love each purchase! Fab blush, Magic Dust and Mothbrown shadows. Beautyburst eyeshadow taught me to love neutrals, the lust with beauty powders began.. the list can go on!

Now for what we've all been waiting for: MAC's collabo with Fafi! Will this upcoming collection wow us as much as the Barbie collection?

*I need some Fafi buzz to keep me going strong until it debuts in Feb. Just a few weeks away!*

How about Heatherette?

Hey Yummy!

I missed out on the Barbie Collection (I know...somebody shoot me) But, don't worry I'll make up for it with Fafi!! I can't wait!

BabyDoll said...

I missed out on the barbie collection too and I am soooo mad! I can't wait for the Fafi one!

Vanessa said...

Hmmm....this is a toughie! But as yummy as Fafi looks, Barbie might take the cake on this one...who knows!

Hey Yummy,
I purchased some stuff from the Barbie loves Mac collection and though I liked the stuff (probably because I liked Barbie so much as a kid) I think that the Fafi collection is going to blow us away. I had the opportunity to see the products up close and personal and this is the first time I have ever wanted everything from any one collection. Dag, is it February yet? I can't wait much longer lol

Eh. I'm one of the few people who was familiar with FaFi long before MAC co-opted it, an I have to say, it doesn't do much for me. I am, however, creaming over the MAC/Heatherette collaboration! The packaging alone is swoon-worthy!

@ christiana: no prob bob! LOL it's beauty bloggers in solidarity! you keep doing your thing and let the haters hate, cuz that's what they do...

@ babydoll and coffee: aww it's okay. if you missed it, you don't know what you missed. so on to fafi!

@ vanessa: some how, I'm with you! the beauty powders and blush look great, but i can't say much more for the rest. in the barbie collection, most of the eyeshadows were winners, the lipsticks, beauty powders, blushes, glimmershimmers.. so so on the lipglasses, but they'll work... i'm feeling Barbie's gonna outweight Fafi.

@ slvrlips: well there ya go folks! slvrlips is giving Barbie a run for her money..... she saw it in person....

@ mandypandy: i'm even excited about the fafi dolls... we shall see how this turns out. have you seen any other heatherette images around???

I can't believe I didn't get anything from Barbie! Where was I? I think I'll like Fafi but they don't seem to have that special thing that everyone will buy! And Heatherette...aaah! We have no idea what will come with Heatherette except for the compact and the lipstick, right?

Well, from Fafi I think I'll get at least a couple of lipsticks, maybe a blush and perhaps a paint pot. Have you seen the Cash Flow pp? I was interested in that but it looks too much like Rubenesque/Indianwodd to have them all maybe.

All in all, I do think Barbie attracted more people though! Barbie is someone everyone can relate to, where most comments on Fafi is "what's a Fafi?".

rocketqueen, barbie was a great collection because it was barbie memorabilia and just a great selection in one entire collection. (if you find pearl sunshine beauty powder anywhere, grab it! you'll love it!!!) however, the colors are something that you will find and can find again (a bunch of green and pinks). i absolutely adore my magic dust and mothbrown eyeshadows, but i also have the well plumed quad from the take wing collection. shroom and a dirty blue color were included... just like my magic dust and mothbrown =p

the one special item that will be a hit for everyone in the fafi collection i believe, will be that coral type blush (looks like a spinoff of the Fab blush from Barbie.) oh i can't wait for the Heatherette collection to be revealed!!! i'm saving up to get almost the entire fafi collection. i'm not as into paint pots so i'll prob get one of those.

i want a fafinette doll!

=) thanks for chiming in. can't wait to see your reviews and fotd's with your fafi haul!

let it be known that I am burning MAC down when FAFI comes out!!

yummy411 said...

yannize HOLLA!!! LOL!!

applediva said...

From what I can see the Barbie looks better than Fafi, but it is still too early to call. I want more FAB blush!!

MsButterfli said...

man I OVERDOSED on Barbie, even got the damn doll too lol, but for some reason i cant wait. I know I'll prob get some lipglasses and one of the quads possibly a blush and a doll. ***looks at work calendar for overtime availabilities**** lol

yummy411 said...

@ applediva: i never got fab blush either. i was sleeping lol

@ msbutterfli: i hear you on that! i gotta put aside a special savings for my collection overdose LOL!
