MAC x Tinashe Eyeshadow x9 Palette

MAC x Tinashe Eyeshadow x 9 Palette ($40.00 for 0.18 oz.) is an interesting mix of lighter pastel greens and purples with a few neutral shades thrown in. It’s decent–not bad for a pre-made MAC palette–but not amazing. There are two Lustres in the palette, which have the fall out that they’re prone to, while a couple of the shades had firmer/stiffer textures that made them hard to blend.

MAC x Charlotte Olympia Cream Colour Bases

MAC Golden Age Cream Colour Base ($23.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “metallic antique bronze.” It’s a shimmering, golden bronze with warm undertones and a fine, pearly shimmer-sheen finish. Unless heavily layered, it had a much more subdued sheen than overtly shimmery. On eyes, it lasted for five hours before creasing, and on cheeks, it lasted for six and a half hours before migrating noticeably. The texture is creamy, highly emollient, and never fully sets, so it retains a dewier finish overall. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage, as described. There was something about the base color that seemed harder to even out on the skin, though. This shade did include a warning that it is “not for use in the lip area” (Cream Colour Bases are multi-tasking products). Laura Mercier Seduction (P, $44.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Casino (P, $36.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Laguna (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Summer Glow (P, $48.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
