MAC Suite Array Collection Review and Swatches

September 26, 2008

MAC’s latest Suite Array Collection brings us two new products for the eyes, Eye Shadow Suites and Pearlglide Liners.

The Eye Shadow Suites ($16) come in 8 pairs of complementing/contrasting colors. They are all matte with a pearly finish and while they are pretty to look at, the coverage is very sheer and you will definitely need a base underneath.

* Blue Zone – Deep grey/green with silver pearl/Light ice blue with silver pearl
* Ocean 2 – Mid-tone blue with silver pearl/Light blue with silver pearl
* Smoke & Ash – Black with silver pearl/Mid-tone grey silver with pearl
* Counterparts – Deep forest with gold pearl/Mid-tone orange with gold pearl
* Rose Suites – Intense blue pink/Light yellow with silver pearl
* Shallow v. Deep – Bluish green with gold pearl/Mint with silver pearl
* Sweet Liason – Pale yellow with gold pearl/Deep brown with gold pearl
* Team Violets – Dark burgundy with burgundy pearl /Mid-tone violet with gold pearl

The new and limited edition Pearlglide Liners ($14.50) are the real winners in this collection and I swear they are MAC’s best pencil liners! They are ultra creamy and glide on so easily! There are a total of 8 gorgeous colors available and they are all rich and metallic with a sparkly finish. You can smudge them out for a softer look or you can just let them set for a more solid effect. The staying power is also great. I ended up with Black Russian and Rave and they make my brown eyes pop!

* Wolf – Deep grey with gold glitter
* Rave – Deep purple with purple glitter
* Fly-by-Blu – Light blue with blue glitter
* Black Russian – Black with navy blue glitter
* Miss Fortune – Eggplant with light pink glitter
* Bankroll – Rich green with bright green sparkle
* Spare Change – Mid-tone brown with copper glitter
* Molasses – Brown with mid-tone brown glitter
