MAC Archies Girls Haul

I'm sure you've all heard about the recent MAC Archie's Girls Collection by now, but for those of you who haven't, feast your eyes on these beauties below!!

I ordered these online from the MAC website, my first ever online purchase from them, and i have to say I'm impressed.
The shipping was super quick, they were packaged really well, in a plain black box with tons of tissue paper for padding, and they were also kind enough to send me a sample of strobe cream, which made me really happy (because who doesn't love samples, right?) and lets face it MAC isn't cheap, and special packaging runs slightly dearer again, so i think if we spend a pretty penny on a company whichever brand it may be we should expect a sample in return.

Take a look at this packaging, seriously its the cutest ever!!

This is the 'Pearl Matte Face Powder in Flatter me'
Not only is the packaging amazing, but look at the product inside, its just beautiful!!

Up close with swatches.
This has really good colour payoff and the product itself feels so soft and silky to the touch.
I cant wait to use this as a blush!!
Ill also be using the lighter shade as a highlight too.

Next up is 'Betty Bright' Lipstick
Now let me tell you i LOVE this colour, its a gorgeous bright peachy colour and is right up my alley.
It comes in a satin finish which has great coverage and isn't drying.
This colour reminds me a little of viva glam Nicki, which i also have.
i think this will look fabulous in the summer and i for one cant wait to wear it.

Next up we have 'Ronnie Red'
Now I'm not usually a red lipstick wearer, although i do seem to have added a few to my collection lately lol, but i had to grab this one after seeing swatches of it all over the Internet, and also because of the name 
(my dads name is Ronnie, haha.)
This shade isn't just a straight up red, i feel its like a pinky red, which for me makes it more wearable, it comes in a matte finish, so is very pigmented.
ill defo be wearing this for nights out, not sure if I'm brave enough to wear it during the day yet!!

The final lipstick that i got is in 'Daddy's Little Girl'
this is a super pigmented pink/violet colour in a satin finish that i absolutely love.
it reminds me alot of 'Gladiola' Lipstick that came out with the Dame Edna Collection, again i do own this colour as well. (Think i may have to do some swatch comparisons, yes? no?)
I seriously cannot wait to wear this colour!!

Here's the swatches for you all.
Top to Bottom:
*Betty Bright
*Ronnie Red
*Daddy's little Girl
The swatches are pretty true to colour, and shows just how pigmented these lipsticks really are, I'm a huge fan of MAC lipsticks anyway and have quite a collection, but theres just something about these 3 colours that i just absolutely love!!
