MAC Transformed Huggable Lip Colours

Now available online (originally slated for a June 2nd launch; in-store date is June 9th on my press release!), there are new, limited edition shades (along with some repromotes) of MAC Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.), which is described as a hydrating, “gel-like lipstick with rich, glossy shine” that wears for “six hours.” The formula tends to be semi-sheer to semi-opaque with moderate shine, lightly clingy (not in an uncomfortable way, but it wears longer than more slippery formulas) with decent wear (four to five hours) and light to moderate hydration. It is the type of formula that feels denser in the tube and softens as it “melts” against the warmth of the lips. I’ve also noticed that some shades self-level after a minute or so after being applied. I think they’re best suited for someone who likes sheerer lipsticks that are comfortable but not slippery and wants some hydration.

The MAC Blue Nectar Collection is a launch that features 12 lipsticks and six Plushglasses that launches online June 2nd and will be in-stores on the 9th. I have 11 of the 12 below (the missing one is actually a repromote, Ablaze, which I’ll try to re-swatch this week as I didn’t realize the MIA shade was one I already had; also Barbecue, Heroine, and Riot House are also repromotes) — full reviews to come!

MAC Pillars Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Pillars Eyeshadow Quad ($33.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that will be available online on May 26th, and in select stores on June 2nd. The quad contains two permanent shades–Mystery and Carbon–and frankly, Sandstone is so close to Cork (permanent) that it might as well be an all-permanent quad (I imagine most readers will have a beige eyeshadow that would function similarly to Mother’s Milk). The colors work well together, and it creates a smoky, more neutral-toned look, so those who prefer pre-made quads and don’t mind that the pans are glued in might still prefer buying it already put together.

MAC Tryphaena and Cleopatra Pro Sculpting Creme Duo

MAC Tryphaena & Cleopatra Pro Sculpting Cream Duo ($33.00 for TBA oz.) has a highlighter and contour in a cream formula. The formula felt denser and had less slip than MAC’s Cream Colour Bases, and they are consistent with previously-released Pro Sculpting Creams (I have a review for them from 2012). I found them easy to apply and blend out with fingertips or synthetic brushes, as the texture was creamy with enough color payoff to show up on the skin but wasn’t so dense as to become difficult to use. They lasted for seven to eight hours on me.
