The other day I went to my MAC counter to check out the new Cham Pale collection that I was so excited about, and instead walked out with two new things from the Stylishly Yours collection.
The Cham Pale products were not the pretty nudes that I thought they were going to be, but they were rather shimmery renditions of pale neutral colors. Nothing really appealed to me, except for the highlighting powders which were pretty, but also a little pricey.
From Stylishly yours I picked up two of the cream colour bases, Virgin Isle and Tickle me Pink.
Ever since kelanjo spoke about her love for virgin isle, a once discontinued product, I knew I had to get it when it was re-promoted in this collection. And I am so glad I did! I also fell in love with tickle me pink, a bright bubblegum pink.

These CCBs look pretty scary in the pan and when swatched, but when blended and sheered out they are absolutely gorgeous. The colors are beautiful - tickle me pink is a dolly, baby pink that likens to Well Dressed on crack, and virgin isle is a rosy orange coral similar to the Korres Orange blush that I talked about here.
These CCBs are not your ordinary cream color bases. They are much more pigmented, and whereas most of the permanent CCBs are shimmery highlighters, these are pure color. They are kind of a mix between the creme blushes and the cream color bases. These are absolutely stunning on the cheeks, as they blend in perfectly to the skin, but they also work on the lips as a sort of stain. As long as you have a light hand with them, the results will be beautiful.
Here they are on my cheeks

These products are so unique and lovely to use; I can't say enough good things about them. If you are to get anything from the new MAC collections, get these! But, of course, that is just my opinion =)
What have you guys picked up from the new collections?
