I don't consider myself a make-up "collector" since I don't really let things accumulate. (An exception is made for eyeshadow though, he he.) Here are some products I've pretty much finished. I'm not going to mention things like lip balm or nail creams, because they're in the trash right now.

So, I'll state how long it took me to finish the items, and some final thoughts as they transition out of my daily routine! The product photos aren't pretty - I didn't clean the items beforehand, sorry. :P

By the way, I'd just like to share the following video with you - it's just food for thought. At the very least, it has cute animation! It's ~20 minutes, so watch it if you have some time to spare. I'd love to know what you think about it! :)

I'm not generally excited about MAC products, what with their 50209842903 collections per season. Their packaging is so basic it's painful - a black, light-weight plastic. I think some drugstore makeup lines have more exciting designs, honestly. Well anyway, it's the inside that counts... right?

One thing I do really admire about MAC is their loyal fan base. I don't know of any other brand that literally has a whole sub-culture associated with it! It's like a cult! ;)

Despite my ho-hum attitude towards MAC, I have managed to accumulate a few of their basic items, which I will briefly review today. I only own 5 things, so this shouldn't take long, LOL.

I'm reviewing things out of season, yet again! This was an Asia-exclusive quint that was part of the Spring 2008 Flower Blossom collection.

This is my first foray into Dior eyeshadows, and I have to say, I'm hooked! The colors in this palette are totally me. Courtesy of Jojoba's reviews on Dior quints, I'm also lemming the Summer Star and Golds quints, but I'm never going to find them, of course haha.

"But hey! There are similar quints out there!" Don't care. "But there are dupes of the shades in those quints everywhere in other lines!" No thanks. Sometimes, you just want the "real thing" if ya know what I mean. ;-P

Anyway, on to Pink May - my love.

Yep!! You read it right - my HG purple eyeshadow (for now! xD). Many of you might be thinking, Whoa, is she nuts?? How can someone have a favorite purple, when there are so many crazy gorgeous purples on this planet?? 

Notice that I said "MY" favorite, which means it likely won't be your favorite. But I thought I'd write about it anyway, both to pay tribute to the Jane Cosmetics brand (which has sadly filed for bankruptcy and is being discontinued), and also just to have fun gushing over this one particular eyeshadow, he he.

(Really, this is not a in-depth 360 review! It's just a collection spotlight.)
