Eclipse

Stellar Eclipse Beauty Cosmic Blush ($25.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, coppery brown with warm undertones and fine shimmer. The shimmer translated into a more luminous sheen rather than obvious shimmer particles once blended on the skin. It seemed as if the powder “melted” on the skin as it did not appear as dusty on my cheeks as it did swatched initially.

The formula is supposed to have a “translucent wash of pigment” that has a “subtle glow” and “long-wear” that “builds easily to a strong, lustrous finish.” There are only three shades in the range presently, and the pigmentation was more medium in coverage, buildable with a very soft texture–but so soft that there was a ton of excess powder kicked up in the pan even with a light touch and a soft brush. They have a luminous finish on the skin, but they only last six to seven hours on me, which is shorter than average. Eclipse was consistent with the other two–medium coverage, buildable, and dusty and drier in the pan, but it applied and blended out nicely. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading.

MAC Pale Rose, Devotional, Digging for Gold Lipsticks

Pale Rose

MAC Pale Rose Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy copper with warm, brownish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had medium, buildable coverage, up to semi-opaque coverage, that applied evenly on the lips. The consistency had moderate slip, and it felt more like a hybrid between Lustre and Metallic with respect to the finish, as it had more slip than some of the other Metallic shades. It was comfortable to wear, lasted for four hours, and was lightly hydrating.

The Metallic Lips collection features a new (and limited edition!) finish, Metallic, which is supposed to be “rich colour [that] melds with smooth pearlized chrome.” The range of shades is described as “vibrant, intense, [and] on-trend.” The coverage varied from shade to shade–anywhere from semi-sheer to semi-opaque–but many shades look like they’re more suitable for a subtle look or for layering on top of another lip product to add a more shimmery finish. The majority of shades featured finer shimmer, which translated to a more foiled, reflective look, but a few had some shimmer. The wear was between three and five hours, depending on the shade, and most shades had some slip but were not slippery overall, so they were comfortable to wear but not hard to maintain. They were vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

MAC Pearly One, Silver Spoon, In Lust Lipsticks

Pearly One

MAC Pearly One Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a pale, silvery white with a glittery, metallic sheen. This shade had larger chunks of sparkle/glitter in it, which bunched up sometimes and gave lips a more textured look, but it had more medium, buildable coverage as a result. The shimmer distributed well across the lips, so it looked “even” despite being sheerer. I could feel the sparkle in the tube as I applied. The color wore well for three hours, though some shimmer lingered for much longer. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating overall.

The Metallic Lips collection features a new (and limited edition!) finish, Metallic, which is supposed to be “rich colour [that] melds with smooth pearlized chrome.” The range of shades is described as “vibrant, intense, [and] on-trend.” The coverage varied from shade to shade–anywhere from semi-sheer to semi-opaque–but many shades look like they’re more suitable for a subtle look or for layering on top of another lip product to add a more shimmery finish.
