MAC Digi-Pops Lip Server Collection for Summer 2010

Hi sweeties!

I have an exciting news for you! Today August 01, 2010 MAC's new collection Digi-Pops is out in stores in Estonia! Yay! :) According to some websites this collection was out in the US July 15, 2010 and was available only at Nordstrom stores! I was lucky enough to get some of the items one day before the collection was out! The ladies at MAC counter here in Estonia are amazingly friendly and know me as being a MAC freak, so they sold me the goodies a bit earlier! :P

The collection is all about lips and therefore includes lipsticks and dazzleglasses the majority of which are SO glittery! ;) I know many girls dont like the chunky glitter that some of MAC lipsticks and dazzleglasses have, but I totally love it! I like to apply the lipstick first and then dazzleglass on the very top... then the effect is really great! ..and lips look juicy and sexy! I totally love this collection! :)

OK, so let me provide you with a list of products available in this collection and some pictures. I also will include pictures of products that I have bought myself and show you some swatches! Enjoy!

Many of us are always looking forward to MAC's new collections! This summer's (2010) new collection is called 'In the Groove"! Unlike many previous collections, this one is very rich on products and colours! Needless to say that all products are extremely pigmented and are of a very good quality!
