I'm a little bit late with reviewing the MAC Vibe Tribe collection so there is a couple of things that have sold out from what I picked up.
Lets start of with the packaging, I am going to confess and own up that the packaging was the main reason I made myself buy from this collection! The collection reminds me of bright tribal cross aztec print although I admit I don't quite like the mustard base shade personally.
Recently MAC's lipstick shade selection for their limited edition collections has just been repetitive same or similar shades with each release so I have to admit this was the shade that stood out to me out of the collection. The shade I got was MAC Hot Chocolate which is described as a dirty plum I don't think I'd be able to describe it any better myself.
Something I did pick up was purely just because I really like the packaging and what not what I'd actually pick up because I needed them was the blushers (well I didn't pick anything up from this collection because I needed them .. oops). However I have to admit unlike other limited edition blushers these are mega pigmented especially MAC Painted Canyon as you can tell from the swatches (one swipe swatch) MAC Modern Mandarin picks up just as well and is very very easy to build up to get a intensive pay off so I am pleased that I picked these up.
Finally I picked up the MAC Dunes at Dusk Gleamtones Powder now I'm not sure if they have previously brought out a 'Gleamtones' powder but for me this is my first. It is a subtle highlighter, in fact I'd class it more of a illuminator. I do use this in the place of a highlighter and have to say it works really well. The all over shade is a pinkish shade and on my skin (nc30/35) it appears to blend in and give that neutral glow. I don't mind this as it's great for those days I want to go for a more subtle glow.
