I have Black Mauve Shimmer Ink from the Fall 2008 Mauve Collection, which is a very pretty dark taupe with micro-shimmer and a great substitute to your regular black and brown.
Here are the reviews as promised:
The Aloe Sun BB cream (shown on the left) contains aloe to hydrate and soothe your skin and is recommended for acne-prone and sensitive skins. Compared to the Gingko BB cream, the texture is slightly runnier which makes it easier to blend. It also has SPF20 to protect your skin from harmful UV rays but other than that, I do not see much of a difference between this and the Gingko Green.
As for the Mushroom Multi Care BB Cream (shown on the right), it is definitely my favorite out of the three! It contains aloe and mushroom extract, adenosine, arbutin and SPF 20 to help whiten and slow down the aging process for a brighter, more radiant complexion. It is recommended for mature skin and dull complexions. Like the Aloe Sun, the texture of this one is more runny and it feels very hydrating. It feels very light, almost like one of those watery moisturizers but gets absorbed into my skin instantly. My skin just glows after I put this on but I do not ever get oily on my t-zone when I use this. The smell of this one is also stronger than the other two but that does not bother me.
While in Paris, I had the chance to check out MAC’s Rushmetal collection and ended up getting Mauvement, Quick Frost, Revved Up, Cocomotion and Gold Mode.
When I first saw the promo pics and online swatches, I thought this was MY collection. I live for bright colors and everything looked so good for the summer! But when I finally got to see it in person, I was far from thrilled.
