Cindy Sherman for MAC Fall Collection - the products I couldn't resist

It's funny that this collection is MAC's 2011 Fall collection. Why funny? Because it's Spring in Australia. But some of the colours are versatile enough to be worn no matter the weather.

When I saw a preview of this collection on Karen's MBB, I knew exactly which goodies I'd be getting. So instead of waiting for ages for the collection to hit Australia, I went straight to my favourite ebay seller and pre-ordered from them. The collection is already released in most countries, and in Australia it's currently only available via the MAC website which means it should be hitting the counters in the next couple of weeks.

So, what could I not resist?

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Porcelain Pink
This is a re-promote, and from the swatches I've seen of the previous version they've improved the formula, and gotten rid of the chunky glittery bits. Thank goodness! This is a lovely pale pink colour which I plan on wearing high on my cheek bones to give a gorgeous glow.


MAC Lipstick in Fusion Pink
This is actually from the permanent line, and is a pro colour in amplified creme formula. I don't know why it's called Fusion Pink as to me the colour is more watermelon red than pink. It reminds me a lot of Impassioned, and I have done a comparison at the end of this post.

MAC Lipstick in Show Orchid
This is also a permanent pro colour. It's a vibrant fuchsia pink with almost blueish undertones. It has a frosty shimmer to it, which makes it look really shimmery on the lips. This is also amplified formula, which is probably my favourite MAC lipstick formula. [Note: I keep calling this Snow Orchid, and based on Google results so do a lot of other people. Oops. Thanks Jerry for correcting me!]

Any potential lipstick dupes?
These are the closest dupes I could find in my collection. While at first glance they look similar, Impassioned is slightly lighter and cooler toned than Pink Fusion. And Covergirl Spellbound, while in the same tone as Snow Orchid, it is a shade or two darker than the MAC one.

Have you bought anything from this collection yet? Has anything caught your eye?
