MAC Haul: In the Groove

Since I'd heard lots of great reviews online about the 'In the Groove' collection and couldnt get to a MAC counter to see the collection for myself, I decided to order a few bits from the MAC website. This was the first time I've placed an order with MAC online and I was quite impressed with the service, my package was shipped to me within 2 days of ordering and my items came nicely presented in a box and wrapped in paper tissue. My only gripe would be that the images of the products on the website are extremly misleading and that is what has stopped me from ordering before: myself like many others prefer to see the makeup in the flesh and get chance to swatch before buying. 
So onto the good stuff.....First of all I ordered a couple of products from MAC mainline range: MAC Fix + which I have lustered after for a while and im sure will be getting alot of use over the summer, and MAC 'Bronze' eyeshadow which is a lovely bronzey/gold/brown.  
I ordered 'Jazzed' Lipstick with im very pleased with, its a beautiful soft peachy coral (not orange like the picture on the MAC site suggests) and I love the creamsheen finish. I bought a backup as I had good hope that I would like this lipstick and I knew it would sell-out quickly after seeing swatches on various blogs. It works well with my skintone and I have had so many compliments when ive worn this....this is definately the star product of the collection.

 I got 'Like It Like That' lipstick which is a lovely cool toned dark pink which has a gorgeous creamy consistency and so flattering on my skintone, i'm not usually a huge fan of the blue-toned pinks.

I also got another MAC Viva Glam Lady Gaga Lipstick as I Love this creamy barbie pinky shade!
