For Dr. Facilier’s collection, we have a whole lot of shimmer to go with the New Orleans voodoo vibe.

The new Magically Cool Liquid Powder ($29.50) is the only product that stood out to me. It is “a featherlight, silky powder that goes on like a mist and sets or enhances foundation, and at the same time it lends dimensionality on naked skin.”

Just like the discontinued Prescriptives Magic Liquid Powder which stirred up quite a buzz years back, this applies with a cooling and wet sensation and goes on very creamy. There are two shades available, both of which are shimmery. Truth & Light is a light cool-toned pinkish beige that can be used as a highlighter and to set foundation on my NC30 skin. Cajun is a golden bronze that will work only as a bronzer. Since Cajun is on the dark side, it does have the tendency to look muddy (even on my NC30 skin) so you must apply with a light hand and blend very well.

The two Greasepaint Sticks ($17.50) are Slick Black, a carbon black repromote and French Quarter, a new, dirty olive green with shimmer. Both are very ordinary colors.

The only lip product in this collection, Resort Life Lipgelee ($15.50), is a repromote from the MAC In Lillyland collection. The color shows up almost clear with lots of pink shimmer, which will look pretty over any lipstick but not a must-have.

Finally, there are the three Pigments ($19.50), which are all old colors. Melon is a super frosty golden peach from the permanent line; Brash & Bold is a bright magenta and Push the Edge is a frosty dark rich purple, both from the Make-Up Art Cosmetics Fall 2009 Collection As Seen By Photographer Marilyn Minter.

Overall, I’m not too impressed with everything and I much prefer the Maleficent collection.
