MAC Rockocco Collection Reviews

There are three new Pigments ($19.50) in this collection.
Accent Red is the only new shade and it is a “magenta fused with red/yellow pearl and purple/blue pearl” which is a lighter version of Ruby Red pigment (Pro) and a warmer version of Pinked Mauve pigment (LE). It is pretty but since it has a lot of red in it, I can only picture most people using this as a blush, lip color or nail polish.

Blue Brown is a “deep brown with frosted green/blue reflection”. I already own this pigment and I *love* it to bits! The brown itself has a lot of warm undertones in it but the blue/green sheen makes it so unique and using it alone wet will give you a sexy smoky eye look.

Fairylite is a “very pale ivory shimmer with opalescent pearl”. To me, I don’t find it a very unique color. I mean it would work as a base or highlighting color but a lot of colors would too.

The Fluidlines ($14.50) featured in this collection are Ostentatious, Brassy, Rich Ground and Macroviolet. Ostentatious and Rich Ground are warm browns; Macroviolet is a dark plum and Brassy is a metallic gold. Out of them all, Brassy and Rich Ground are the prettiest and has the most shimmer. Ostentatious and Macroviolet both look kind of dull to me.

The new Iridescent Powder ($20), Star is a shimmery beige with gold glitter. It is pretty to look at but the glitter is a little too chunky to be used all over.

Described as a “vivid bright rose red”, Cream Color Base in Premeditated ($16) is *VERY* red and definitely not for the faint-hearted. I would only recommend this color for those with dark skin.
