MAC for DSQUARED Review and Swatches

Every year, MAC releases a collection, in collaboration with amazing contemporary designers. This year, MAC got together with the dynamic duo, Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared.

Greasepaint Sticks-
Expanding on the launch of the basic black greasepaints, Dsquared sees the introduction of V and B, a violet and blue greasepaint stick, respectively. Like its blue cousin, these paintsticks contain chunky particles of glitter, and once applied do.not.budge. These babies inspired love (and lust) at first sight, and I knew I had to own them both.

Lipsticks-
This collaboration covers both the dramatic and subdued ends of the spectrum with a muted red (Blood Red), and a pinkish nude (Nude Rose). Both lipsticks are fairly sheer, and thus slightly boring for me.

Fuschia Fix is a deep raspberry pink lip conditioner.

Clear Gloss and lip erase are nothing new, and neither is our beloved feline khol power and sculpt and shape duos.

Swatches:
L-R Greasepaint sticks in B, Black, and V, Blood Red, Nude Rose, Feline under the lipsticks
Fuschia Fix TLC, Dim Lip Erase

All in all, I felt that the stars of this collection were the new shades of greasepaint sticks. Tell me in the comments, did you (will you) haul from MAC DSquared?

I don't think I will haul anything. If I were to buy something it would be the sculpt & shape duos but I already have them.

I got the last feline eye kohl at the MAC counter. In my city they only got a few of each product, so after just the 1st day a lot was already sold out.
I tried out Feline, and I liked it even more than I thought I would!!!!!!
