MAC Vibe Tribe Collection now Available

With all the controversy surrounding the new MAC Vibe Tribe collection, I’m sure there’s a lot of bellas out there that have decided to boycott the brand and the collection. As much as I concur with some and completely agree that MAC was in the wrong on this one, I couldn’t help but get my hands on some of these gorgeous trinkets. I couldn’t resist to get my hands on the Gleamtones Powder and two of the lippies. I haven’t used them yet so today I’ll be sharing what the collection entails and if I love the items I picked up, I’ll…

As you know I’ve been rotating my makeup everyday to try new looks and combinations whilst also not allowing the money I’ve spent to not have been a complete waste. No doubt there are some products that are way better than others and there’s just no chance they’re being overtaken anytime soon so I’ve left those categories out completely.

It’s no secret that both brands are owned by the same company, with Catrice being like the bigger sister of the two. The Essence target market are younger girls still in school while Catrice is designed for women.

They’re all part of the permanent range so if you miss out, you can be rest assured they’ll be restocked for you to get your hands on…
