Hi Glamifys,


MAC recently had a party to launch their latest limited edition collection by fashion duo, ISABEL & RUBEN TOLEDO.

It was such a fun filled event with Beno Lim (super talented MAC makeup artist) teaching everyone how to maximize the TOLEDO collection 🙂

Lipstick and Lipglass SGD 33 each 

Nail polish SGD 25

Pearl glide pencil SGD 33

Brush 129SE SGD 68

Makeup bag SGD 50

Look what I got! Plus not to forget my dear husband went over to USA to pick up 3 items for me a couple of weeks ago 😘😘😘

Sephora had a 15% off promotion too so I decided to grab some other stuff along the way hee reviews coming up real soon 🙂 



The ombre blushers were OMGEEEEEEE ! Was so happy that hubby managed to grab me RIPE PEACH and when it launched in Singapore, I got my hands on the other 2 Blushers.  Crazeeee pretty! 





Ripe peach is a coral orange with slight hints of shimmer. As with the other blushers, you could use the colors separately or swirl it all together for best effect 😍



Kindergarten Red was selling out so quickly as it fit darker Asian skin tones best. 







It reminds me of a pinky to ripe watermelon color. Alternatively, you could use the lighter shade as your highlight and the darker red as your blusher 



The other super duper pretty blusher which has my favourite color PURPLE! Is the AZALEA BLOSSOM

Baby pink to purple sheen which is gorgeous on light skin tones as well as medium to olive tones 🙂 





The best brush to apply blushers with is the 129 which came in a special edition (SE) for the Toledo collection 





So soft and blends the blusher evenly on your cheeks. It even came with a cute plastic travel pouch to protect your brush. 



There were 3 different mascaras; one was a blue, another was lime green and the one I picked was purple!

Tarot was a deep purple with shimmer. Absolutely wearable for a day out 🙂 





The modern twist wand shape helped to add volume and lengthen my lashes with ease. 

The collection also came with 3 eyeshadow palettes and given that I plenty of purple palettes, I gave VIOLETWINK a miss 😦

Bellgreens is such a unique palette. It has a highlighter shade, a duo chrome shade (second from left) and a mix of shimmery and matte colors for the other 4. The feature of the palette is the 4th color from left which is an unusual lime/ muddy green. 

Looks odd in the palette but very pretty on the skin 🙂 





Moodyblu as the name suggests are all about blues and the complementary shades of purple and grey. 

I love the pigmentation of both these palettes and similar to Bellgreens, Moodyblu also has a duo chrome shade in the palette. 





 

So happy with the entire collection.  The packaging was pretty and the quality of products were good too. Most of it was limited edition which is a plus point for makeup collectors like myself. 

I picked up 4 lipsticks from the collection although there were 6 in total. Barbecue to shop was a little too orange for my liking given I don’t have the fair skin tone to pull it off. The other color was sin which I already own from a previous collection. 

Victoriana was the lightest red, followed by Tenor Voice and lastly, Opera. The only nude in the Toledo collection was Oxblood which is so extremely difficult to find given that it is out of stock most of the time 😦 





Left: Opera (deepest true red)

Right: Victoriana (lighter watermelon red)

The in between was Tenor Voice which was a medium blood red. I also grabbed the lipglass which makes the lipstick so much richer.

My ultimate favorite color has got to be oxblood which has a nude pinky rose tone. Absolutely love this and for some odd reason, I feel a connection to this color. I was born in the year of the ox. Haa oh well…. Some random connection to the lipstick.

Both the lipsticks and lipglasses applied effortlessly. No tugging or dragging. Plus the pigmentation is superb 🙂 very happy with all  my purchases .
