Midnight Fever

MAC Midnight Fever Dazzleshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) features two shades of Dazzleshadow, which is supposed to be an “eyeshadow with rich, stay-true pigments that impart a beautiful, twinkling sheen” that has “minimal fallout.” One of the shades–Let’s Boogie–is part of the permanent range and can be purchased individually for $18. The palette contains two full-sized eyeshadows, though, so it is a great value if you like both shades. The Dazzleshadow works best with a damp brush or over an adhesive base, as it helps intensify the sparkling finish and ensure better adhesion. The only issue is that using them damp can make them harder to blend out, so my technique is to apply them damp when using as a lid color or deeply in the crease but then using the product dry to layer and diffuse the edges.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Spotlight Me

MAC Spotlight Me Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The lipstick was creamy with some slip but did not feel overly slippery on the lips, so it did not slide around or feel like a high maintenance product. It had good pigmentation that covered the lips evenly, though it was shy of being truly opaque on me. There was a smidgen of color that sat in my deeper lip lines but was not noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Peony Petal

MAC Peony Petal Blush ($23.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, medium cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a firmer, stiffer consistency. This shade has been released in the past, but the version I received to review for this launch was noticeably harder to use due to the firmly pressed powder. I was able to apply and blend it out enough for fairly even coverage, but it was not easy to use. On me, the color started to fade after eight hours of wear.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

The Best & Worst of MAC Lipglasses (2017 Edition)

Here’s a recap of how well the newly repackaged MAC Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) performed! There are shades that were carried over from the original permanent range as well as new ones, along with several limited edition options (several of which were in the Lustreglass range previously).

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness.

I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.
