MAC Dare to Wear Haul and Swatches

MAC's Dare to Wear collection launched today in stores so I got my butt over to MAC to check out them in person. I thought it was pretty cool that this collection was inspired by Lady Gaga. I was really feeling the rainbow aspect of these eyeshadows, but I'm really trying to hold off buying stuffie stuff until Fabulous Felines launches. I only bought Going Bananas and Sassy Grass (lol I love saying sassy!). The other three shadows are for my very preggo friend who kindly allowed me to swatch these for you guys.

Swatches with flash

Many of the shades in this collection were repromotes from the permanent or PRO collection. Aqua swatched well but was kind of chalky. Sky Blue took a little work to swatch but I liked the silver sparkle to it. Crazy Cool was very smooth in texture. Going Bananas took a little work but the payoff seems worth it and it also gleams. Sassy Grass is a matte and has great color payoff. I've never seen a green like it from MAC.

I decided against the lipglosses in this collection since I have my fair share of glittery glosses.

What are you lemming from this collection? Let me know in the comments!

ps don't forget to enter my giveaway!

Disclosure- products featured were bought by yours truly.


  1. Wow only 2 e/s Linds? Good job! I actually didn't like a lot of the colors because they were chalky.

  2. Crazy Cool looks really pretty!:D
    Beauty. Fashion. Interior Design.
    & Life According to Marie.

  3. I've been trying to be good and not spend my money on this collection, but I have been thinking of buying the yellow. Do you think it's worth it.

  4. Kristie- yep yep, I was good this time lol. Agree about the chalkiness though.

    Marie- Crazy Cool is beautiful in person!

    Funnyfacebeauty- If you don't own any yellows, this one is a good one to have since it's such a soft pearly color. I think it's worth it if you'll use it.

  5. I bought Going Bananas, Sassy Grass and Zingy... we have similar tastes =P I may return Zingy - blues come out muddy on me sometimes and this one is doing it too :(

  6. I want to see you with Sassy Grass on!

  7. I bought Going Bananas and Aqua, since Sassy Grass is a little too dark for my skin tone. I didn't think Aqua was chalky, but it was difficult to get the color to show up as true as I wanted it to - it works great wet, though!
