This came out in the stores yesterday so I went and checked it out after work. Overall I was a little disappointed but I still managed to pick up the 3 pigments. Below are the reviews:
I got a couple of new MAC pigments earlier this week. Here they are:
Ruby Red: I have used this before in one of my “Face of the Night” entries. It is a shimmery raspberry red color.
Golden Lemon: this is a shimmery goldish yellow color. It would be great as a wash or for highlighting the inner corner.
Chartreuse: this is a shimmery kiwi green with yellow in it. I wore this with Deep Blue Green and it made my eyes pop.
Kelly Green: this color is exactly the same green you see on St. Patrick’s Day. This would look *so* pretty with Chartreuse.
Deep Blue Green: this looks black in a quick glance but is actually a very dark blue with a green sheen to it. This would look great as a liner or for a smoky eye look.
If I have time, I will probably do a couple of looks with these colors and post pictures.
MAC Studio Finish Satin Foundation ($20) was my first liquid foundation and is now discontinued. It is water-based, emollient-rich and comes with a SPF value of 8. The ma told me this contains a derivative of Vitamin E and would be good for normal to dry skin but it accentuated my flakes and made my face look really dry. It is also supposed to deliver “a fresh, velvety finish with light to medium coverage” but it did not cover well for me either. Thumbs down for this one.
I really liked these looks from MAC so I had to post them on here:
This classic smoky eye look is *hot*. Pair it with a nude or pink gloss.
MAC’s newest collection, Culturebloom, just hit stores on 2/16. Read on to see what I picked up!
MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder ($20) is no doubt my favorite pressed powder and I have already gone through two of them. The powder is very finely milled and offers minimal coverage. I cannot say anything about its oil-controlling properties since I am on the dry side but this works excellent for touch-ups. It never looks chalky and feels so silky and almost creamy when applied on. I will definitely keep sticking to this until I find something better.
