MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show & Swatches

MAC recently released a Rocky Horror Picture Show Collection to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the movie.

When I first started seeing pictures of the collection I decided that I would pass on this one after recently purchasing the Gravitas Palette from the MAC Brooke Shields Collection.

Honestly it gets expensive keeping up with all of the back to back limited edition MAC collections.

But, where there is a will there is definitely way.

The MAC RHPS Collection was set to release on September 29th, but it didn't.

For some reason it was rumored that there wasn't enough stock available and I also heard something about a product defect.

Anyway, the collection released the next day on September 30th and when it did I found myself adding three items from the collection to my cart.

Wait.

Didn't I say I was passing on this collection.

I guess the addict in my disagreed.

After analyzing what happened I have come to the conclusion that the fact that it was in such high demand made it more appealing for me.

Also I am a huge sucker for limited edition packaging and thought I would definitely kick myself later if I passed on this collection.

So initially I wanted the FranknFurter lipstick as I think most did and that was the only lipstick that wasn't available at the time the rest of the collection was live. I believe it became available an hour or so later, but by the time I went to get it you can guess it was already sold out.

I ended up picking up the Strange Journey Lipstick, Crazed Imagination Blush, and It's Not Easy Having A Good Time Pigment.

Strange Journey is a Yellowish Brick Red Lipstick and is different from the other red lipsticks that I have in my collection. It is a matte lipstick.

The Crazed Imagination blush Muted Plum with a hint of Pink Shimmer. It is a frost blush.

The It's Not Easy Having A Good Time Pigment is Sparkling Burgundy Loose Pigment.

All three of these items are currently sold out on MAC's website as well as the other three lipsticks in the collection.

The MAC Rocky Horror Picture show is a limited edition collection that was only sold online on MAC's website and in select stores.

Currently I have only seen items from the collection sold on ebay or Amazon.com, but of course they are marked up significantly.

Did you pick up any items from the MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show Collection?
