As much as I am addicted to mineral makeup, I still can't give up MAC eye and lip products. They are still some of the most gorgeous, pigmented and smoothest cosmetics I've ever tried. Hence, when the MAC Moonbathe collection was launched today, I definitely made a bee-line to my nearest MAC counter. I really loved the warm, bronzey colors of the new collection, although I'm on the fence with regard to the packaging because it looked too retro for my taste. Nonetheless, I love everything, especially the eyeshadows. I also saw the newly launched lip balm called Tendertones, and I snagged the prettiest one on my lips. I'm going back to get more Tendertones and the bronze-brown lipstick. This is one of the best MAC collection in a long time in my opinion. And yes, I definitely think this is better than Barbie!

Can you believe how gorgeous these colors are? Tendertones lip balms smell and taste as good as they look. I could eat a whole pot for dessert! Top: Lipglass in Crescent, Tendertones in Hush-Hush.

The new cremestick liners were launched together with the Slimshines. I got Mother Pearl and Amber Ember. These liners are so gorgeous; they totally change the appearance of your boring lipsticks. These can make your lipsticks look either pearlized, darker or lighter; the possibilities are simply endless.

As soon as I got home from the MAC counter, another surprise greeted me in the mail. My Aromaleigh lipsticks finally arrived! They are as gorgeous as some of my MAC lipsticks, and I like their matte but non-drying finishes. Most of all, I got them during Aromaleigh's 25% off lipstick sale. This week, it's the lipglosses' turn to be on sale. Aaah! Tempting, tempting!
