MAC Shadescents Collection for Holiday 2016

Scent and lips create irresistible chemistry with M·A·C Shadescents, six new perfumes inspired by our most iconic Lipstick shades. Lady Danger thrills with notes of wild cherry and Ruby Woo goes bold with whiffs of deep red leather. Notes of saffron, incense smoke, and cordovan leather surprise and intoxicate in My Heroine. Candy Yum-Yum conjures tropical fruit and cotton candy and Velvet Teddy calls forth wild honey and creamy musk. Crème d’Nude evokes the vibrant sexiness of naked skin.

Touch My Body

MAC Mariah Carey Touch My Body Loose Powder ($39.50 for 0.51 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy copper with flecks of lighter and darker copper sparkle. It was sheer, almost translucent, but it was surprisingly buildable–I applied it to my cheeks and expected more of a highlighting effect, but it actually yielded color and coverage. I thought the color was nearly identical to My Mimi but applied a lot better as it was more even.

When applied with the included pouf, it had sheerer, more all-over coverage, while applied with a tapered highlighting brush, it gave subtle color and moderate luminosity. As a cheek highlighter, it lasted for just over eight hours before fading. As this product is not yet released, there was not much on it with respect to concrete claims, so the rating is based on what most loose, highlighting powders are designed to do (as well as what I remember MAC’s Iridescent/Loose Powder, which this one seems to be similar to–described as a highlighter with a “subtle glaze of colour”). I’ll be checking for any additional/different claims when the product releases online.

Rainbow Interlude

MAC Rainbow Interlude Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a translucent pink with pink and silver pearl. It had sheer coverage and lightened my natural lip color a bit while adding more of a pink tint to them, but the effect that was more noticeable was the sparkle and shine. The texture was smooth, somewhat tacky, but comfortable to wear and easy to spread across the lips. It lasted for three hours on me.

Worth noting, the Lipglasses in this collection contain significantly less product than regular Lipglass–the tube may seem thicker, but it’s likely due to thicker plastic. MAC Lipglass typically contains 0.16 fl. oz. and retails for $16 (or $100.00/fl. oz.), while this one is $18.50 for 0.10 fl. oz. (or $185.00/fl. oz.). The tubes are very similar to the kind that Dazzleglasses and Cremsheen Glasses come in. None of the glosses were described as sheer (Lipglass is a “high coverage” formula, per MAC’s website), so none of them rated very well, though I think a few would work for layering or sheerer lip looks, if that’s something you like!

You've Got Me Feeling

MAC Sweet Sweet Fantasy Blush ($24.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. The texture was incredibly stiff, which made it a challenge to get product off of the pan’s surface just to swatch–I had to scrape at it to dislodge powder and get enough to show up on my skin at all.

I used a paper towel to rub against the surface to break it down further, which helped to a small degree, but it was not one of MAC’s best showings–and they can do a bright pink like this! Unsurprisingly, it was hard to diffuse and blend out the edges, as the color adhered strongly wherever it initially landed but did not want to spread from there. The finish was glowing without being overtly shimmery, and if you work with it long enough, it can look nice on. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours on me.

It's Everything

MAC It’s Everything Eyeshadow Quad ($41.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a cooler-toned set of neutral shades that leans more shimmery. It is housed in a “glitter” trimmed compact, where the glitter looks and seems like glitter, but it is completely smooth to the touch. The color combination worked really well together, but the first two shades weren’t consistent with the listed finish (both on the press release as well as on the palette’s label) and seemed misprinted. The rating is based on what the brand described, to be consistent, but I’ll be double-checking on that and making any updates to the rating if it is determined to actually be flipped!

Sweet Sweet Fantasy

MAC Sweet Sweet Fantasy Blush ($24.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a soft, slightly firmer texture. It was firm enough that there wasn’t any powdery excess when I patted my brush against the surface, but it wasn’t so firm that it was difficult to get color onto the brush or to blend out on the skin. The blush blended out fairly easily, though it was not the most effortless coral blush I’ve come across, so I do recommend building up and diffusing as you go. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.
