For a new take on tradition, M∙A∙C introduces Modern Twist Kajal Liner, a kohl-like liner that’s sultry, seductive and maybe a little bit scandalous. The easy-glide formula makes this pencil a one-stroke wonder with a silky, soft texture that’s perfect for rimming the sensitive waterline. Its colour intensity and extreme depth creates a look with unparalleled impact. The long-wearing waterproof formula locks in your look for hours.

MAC Eye Z You Eyeshadow Palette (Zac Posen)

MAC Eye Z You Eyeshadow Palette ($43.50 for 0.19 oz.) is a pink and plum-hued palette with a subdued gray in the mix. There are six shades, and two appear to be totally new-to-me, while three are repromotes from past releases (two are from larger permanent palettes) and one is permanent as a single (Phloof!). It’s decent, and I was able to use all six shades on their own with some success, but some of the shades are drier to work with.

MAC x Zac Posen Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo

MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a split-pan product with one shade being more of your traditional bronzer and the other being a pink-coral. Neither shade performed well, but the more blush-like shade had a really firm, hard press that required jabbing at the powder’s surface to get decent color out of it. This is at least the third time in recent memory that MAC has released a mid-tone brown/pink-coral blush duo, and I wonder why they haven’t been able to jump out of the box–it’s becoming like NARS Laguna/Orgasm over here.

MAC x Zac Posen Lipsticks

MAC Sheer Madness Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sheer nude [with a Lustre finish]. It’s a very light champagne beige with fine champagne and iridescent pink pearl. It seemed to add a little warmth but mostly shimmer when applied to lips. It is sheer, as you might expect a Lustre to me, so this is a shade that can look quite different from person to person. It had a light amount of slip so it didn’t tug, but the color seemed to gather and emphasize lip lines. It was gone after an hour of wear–at least it was drying (though it wasn’t moisturizing either). Bobbi Brown Pink Gold Shimmer (7) (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Sugar Daddy (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker, more pigmented (85% similar). Burberry Gold No. 217 (LE, $33.00) is more pigmented (85% similar).
