MAC Red She Said Collection Mineralized Eyeshadow Trios Reviews and Swatches

Over the weekend, I got invited to a MAC private preview party for the Red She Said collection which will hit stores on 10/16. I ended up bringing home with a few of the new Mineralized Eyeshadow Trios ($17.50). Read on for reviews and pics!

The new Mineralized Eyeshadow Trios are similar to the Mineralize Eyeshadow Duos that were released in the Electro Flash collection and they are definitely my favorite from the collection!

There are a total of 6 trios in super rich, metallic colors. Each of them are paired either with a coppery bronze or a frosty silver in the middle. All colors are decently pigmented and buildable with a smooth texture with the exception of the ones in the middle (the bronze and silver), which tend to be slightly chunky. Nevertheless, these are *beautiful* and I can see them working on different skin tones.

*Word-of-Mouth – Frosty pale beige / copper pearl bar / med dark gray
*Inter-View – Frosty warm rose pink / copper pearl bar / frosty bronze
*Threesome – Medium red brown / copper pearl bar / shimmering dark blue
*Dangerzone – Red / silver pearl bar / frosted black
*Persuasive – Clear frosty blue / silver pearl bar / cold indigo
*Outspoken – Plum / silver pearl bar / frosty violet

Besides the trios, I also brought home the Red, She Said! Lipstick ($14). It is a blue-based red and it goes on very smooth and gives me that glamorous look in an instant! I will definitely be wearing this a lot!

  1. that looks gorgeous :)
    i also have a question…I just started experimenting with makeup (I’m 19)…and I really want to try these products…but I can’t spend too much. What kind of products would you recommend for a “basic” makeup routine that’s also versatile? To tell you the truth the amount of different shades of eyeshadows at the MAC counter is quite overwhelming for me, and I don’t know where to start my search. Thanks so much!
