MAC Untamed Collection Reviews and Photos

Both Eyeshadow Quads ($35) look pretty nice but nothing too different from existing colors. The only shades that stood out to me were Well-plumed and Courage from the Well Plumed quad and Bravado from the Take Wing quad. The rest are either boring or not pigmented at all.

Powder Blushes ($17.50)
Both blushes are matte. Taupe is a muted tray brown and Stray Rose is a deep neutral pink. Stray Rose is an okay color but I have no idea how Taupe can be a blush. To me, it looked like eyebrow powder more than anymore else *lol*

Tinted Lipglass ($14)
These are all so pretty especially La La Libertine. All the colors except Boldheart would work on different skintones. If you do not own a Lipglass and is thinking of getting one, try this collection.

  1. hey phyllis… how are you doing in london? =( i hope things are going well for you. anyway, i just got some new mac… i ended up ordering a bunch online b/c they were out at the counter for a lot of items. you’ll have to help me with them when they arrive!

  2. hi phyllis, i love your makeup blog and you have so much knowledge about the field. i’m just surprised you aren’t a makeup artist! i have a question but it’s about hair coloring. my natural hair color is brown (light for an asian) but i dyed it black. i used demipermanent dye which means it washes out in 28-30 shampoos but it’s not coming out fully but leaving brown streaks at the tips and my roots are growing in. it’s a disaster. i was thinking about putting dark brown streaks in it so when it grows out, it’ll look natural with my hair color or i can dye it a medium/dark brown. black can look sophisticated but it looks harsh and i’m going to school in san diego near the beach and black is so not the color for the beach. excuse me for writing way too much. is it possible you email at ? i would LOVE to hear back… thanks so much for reading!

  3. I am already working on a tutorial on how to apply bronzer. I will publish it in a bit – sorry for the super long delay!
