I have been invited to the preview of MAC's upcoming collection Give Me Liberty of London and went to it this evening. According to the e-mail we were suppose to RSVP by March 1st since the event would be today, March 2. I put it off a bit because I wasn't sure if the new collection would be available for purchase. After all I have seen the swatches and the packaging on Temptalia along with a few other websites, so what would be the point of going...I am happy that I made that reservation, it was so much FUNNNN!!! And as you can tell from the blog title, yes the new collection was available for purchase in deed! First of all, the store was packed...with crazy obsessed MAC addicts and cute guys serving cocktails and hors d'oeuvres! After checking in at the door, I ran with my camera in my hand straight to Give Me Liberty of London collection...
After drooling over these new products and "fighting" with other MAC addicts to have my turn to swatch, here is the outcome (of course we weren't really fighting hence the " but there were a lot of people inside with only 2 stands of Give Me Liberty of London, and everyone was dying to swatch!)

Yes, I only got 3 things and these 3 products are what I really loved from this collection. They are: Birds & Berries eyeshadow, English Accents lipglass and Blooming Lovely Lipstick :) I will play around with these new goodies and do a look for sure!
Has anyone else gone to the preview? If so, what did you end up buying? If not, do you like anything from this collection, what are you planning to buy?
