Mac extra dimension and reel sexy

Hello everyone :
Yesterday MAC released two new collections extra dimension and reel sexy ,I'm sure most Mac lovers will not skip those two..There are lots of exciting things in both of them ,all the girls I know were waiting for extra dimension because of the skin finishes ,they are so buttery and have lot of shimmer that you 'll  like.For me I found the three not suitable for my skin tone,I wished to find at least one but I wasn't that lucky any way there are still nice things to buy check them out ..
From extra dimension I picked these three eye shadows:
mac extra dimension
The texture of those is too soft and buttery ,they give you the feeling of cream,the pigmentation is very good.
mac blue orbit

Blue orbit: This is a unique color ,it is a blue violet with small golden shimmer . more purple in real .
Modern Pewter
Modern Pewter : It is a dirty olive gold .
Rich core
Rich Core: burgundy brown .It is darker in real .

From reel Sexy collection I picked:

Dynamic duo3: a taupe grey and a dark teal green  

Dynamic duo1:a golden pink ,It reminds me of mac expensive pink and a matte purple .

I also picked lightscapade :
This is a mineralize skin finish.It is a Soft candlelit beige with multi-dimensional shimmer .

from the skin care I bought strobe cream for the first time to try it .

It is not a treatment but it gives a glow for the face with it's very tiny shimmers .it makes you look healthy.I'll be back to you with a review after taking some time trying it .
Have you tried any of these products ,what do you think ?

H&M Polishes,blushers,lipsticks

Hello dear readers:)
I'm back to you with this review for latest purchases from H&M cosmetics.
H&M cosmetics
I've mentioned before how good H&M polishes are .They have different finishes ,most of them need only 2 coats to be opaque . They dry faster than my zoyas and chinaglaze ones.
These are my picks ..
nail him
Nail him:  a bright blue cream ,opaque in 2 coats .
Lemon tree
Lemon tree:a beautiful bright lemon yellow cream ,opaque in 2 coats .
lady luck
 Lady luck:this one has a different formula ,it has small duo chromes that give a green shade or blue depending on your light .This one coat , I had to apply it with light strokes or  brush strokes will appear .Love this one.
Pinkastic :This is the only one I was disappointed with,it is a sheer jelly will pink duo chromes ,they did not has a tester for this one or I wouldn't buy it .It never becomes opaque as I want ,Here I applied 4 coats .I may use it as a top coat .

Here we come to my favorite part about makeup !!
Although H&M makeup is cheap but it has a great pigmentation in their blushers and bronzers .
This is the first time I find lipsticks in their store ,I picked 2 to try then go  back  for the rest .

pink sea shell

 Pink sea shell:a soft formula,easy to apply .Nice for the nude look or the dark smokey is a swatch on lips

Hibiscus: It is a name of a flower I guess ,It is a pretty strawberry red color . this is the swatch on lip.
 There are also two blushers 
Bronze: Nice blusher with a little golden shimmer that I love ,it doesn't turn orange after a while like other bronze blushers I have .
sugar coral
Sugar coral :it is a reddish pink coral ,I don't know how to describe it but it is a vivid color that I never have before from mac or makeup forever.

Here are the concealers I found there!! 
This concealer is amazing , I 've tried many types of concealers , many of them look like chalk or make lines after a while ,this has a good coverage ,I didn't see many shades from  this one .

It is ideal for eye circles because of it's yellow base.I have under eye puffs ,those are really hard to hide ,I apply the concealer right under the puff not on it and blend using mac 224 brush or sigma p84 .It will minimize the appearance of the tired eyes and make them look lifted.

This concealer is for hiding discoloration of the skin ,it is thicker than the previous one . 

Have u tried H&M cosmetics ,what do you think and what do you recommend me to buy ? 
Thank you ,have a nice day..

Mac Vera:pearl glide eye liners and Chenman Budding love lipstick

Like always Mac Kuwait is late with all these collections launched months ago in Europe and USA and around the world even in Dubai but here is still no news and they even have no idea what is the next collection and when !!Finally our Mac launched Vera collection and Chen man collection ..
I was waiting for Vera because of the pearlglide liners ..Chen man contains nice mineral eye shadows but I have lots of Mac eyeshadows  so I skipped that ,my sister brought me force of love lipstick if you like to see the post here for photos and swatches.I added Budding love lipstick to my collection.I wasn't sure if this color suits me because there were no tester..let me show you what I picked ..
chenman Budding love
chenman Budding love swatch
 Budding love lipstick: a pale lavender  with lustre finish .

Vera collection:
In this collection the most interesting items were the crushed pigments but I didn't buy it because I don't usually use it ,I prefer the compact ones , fall out of the shadows drive me crazy and leave a big mess that you don't want to waste time cleaning it .There were also the pearl glide eye liners that are a must have ,very smooth and easy to apply,excellent color payoff .They can be used as liners or as a base then blend with eye shadow.

purple designer
 Purple designer: a purple base with purple shimmer .I tried it under my lower lash line with Mac wood winked and tempting eye shadows.The result was amazing to see the swatches of shadows here.
 Industrial:it is a unique color , the base is greyish blue with blue shimmer . you will see it different from different angles . 
 Black line : It has a black base with golden  and blue micro glitters. Sometimes I see it olive green !!
 Undercarrent:it has a mermaid teal color base with golden micro shimmer. This is the most eye catching for me ,I love it.
All liners last for hours ,no smudge,no mess,But avoid using them on waterline because of the small glitters that may harm your eyes .
If you have the chance to get these liners don't miss it . I'm sure you will love their finish and how smooth they are . Did you try any thing from vera or chen man what do you think of them.?

Colors are really pretty and summery.

Beach collection:
This collection contains polishes with creme finish .
 I'll start with my favorite color of this collection
Shelby: This is a very pretty bubble gum pink , it reminds me of Nikki Minaj lipstick .I guess it will be so beautiful together .It needs three coats to look nice.
Lara: a bright pink ,Zoya has many pinks that are very close to it .
Reagan:it is a raspberry pink .This one also has dupes from Zoya .
Tracie:it's what we call it in arabic pistachio green ,it is a cute color and the only one in this collection that has a different finish ,  a frost finish .
Wednesday:it is best described as a dusty teal color .I love this one .
Arizona:it is a yellow based orange .It reminds me of zoya jancyn or china glaze papaya punch.

Now the Surf collection which contains foils
Starting with my favorite one:
Zuza:This is the must have in both collections .It is an aqua blue green with silver particles.This was the first one I picked to try from the 12 polishes.It is very attractive .
Meg: this is a green foil with yellow particles .
Myrta:It is a deep orange that is more red foil. 
Kimber: a raspberry pink foil with small golden particles.It reminds me of  china glaze strawberry fields and zoya mieko .I 'll swatch dupes soon to show you how close they are. 
Rory:This a light pink mauve foil with silver particles .I like that .
Carly:an eggplant purple with pink and blue particles .I love this color although it has many colors close to it from zoya .
