Happy Eve of Christmas Eve everyone! If you were nuts like me, then you ran to the mall last minute to see if MAC launched Cham Pale and Stylishly Yours early. I'm nuts apparently. These two collections launch officially on Dec 26th.
On to my haul!

Vintage Selection is a pinky peach, chunky glittered, frosty, sheer, paint pot. Got all that? These swatches are layered so they show up! Chilled on ice is a sheer frosted white gold with some chunkiness. Dangerous Cuvee is a sheer frosted cool grey with some chunkiness. You can use these as a base or as a shadow. I'm currently wearing Vintage Selection alone (see below) and love the result! I've experienced no creasing in the last 6 hours. Love the shimmer!
Chez Chez Lame
MAC Fail! Play it Proper Beauty Powder. Note to self, always check the box before you head home...

Chez Chez Lame is a soft gold with silver shimmer highlight powder. It feels super soft in the pan and goes on sheer and soft. I noticed it doesn't go on as strong or frosty as Mineralize Skin Finishes or as pearly as beauty powders.
Play it Proper Beauty Powder is a light pink with silver shimmer. I found it to be extremely powdery (haha well it is broken.... powder got everywhere!) This might show up ashy on some darker skin tones.
I'm wearing Vintage Selection on the lid and Chez Chez Lame on my cheeks on top of MAC Hipness blush. See how subtle Chez Chez Lame is? This was me piling it on with my newly acquired face brushes from Sigma (Thanks Productrater!!!)
So what do you think? Will you be picking up treasures from either collection or will you be passing? Keep in mind Peacocky and Mickey Contractor both launch January 6th... Don't you hate when MAC puts out large collections back to back?
Disclosure: I bought everything featured.
