MAC Chez Chez Lame Special Reserve Highlighting Powder

MAC Chez Chez Lame Special Reserve Highlighter Powder ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.) is one of two new and limited edition highlighting powders included in the Cham-Pale launch (the other being Rose Ole). MAC describes it as a “soft gold with silver shimmer.”  It’s a softened white gold with subtle yellow undertones and a soft white shimmer-sheen.  I don’t see so much of a silver shimmer as I do a soft white one, though.

MAC I Get No Kick Eye Kohl

MAC I Get No Kick Eye Kohl ($14.50 for 0.048 oz.) is described as a “metallic nude,” and it is a new and limited edition eyeliner from Cham-Pale.  MAC’s description is dead-on–it is a soft champagne nude with a metallic sheen.  It works really well on the lower lash line to wake up tired eyes by adding some light and reflective sheen.  Smooth and pigmented as MAC’s Eye Kohls, it also wears well (going on eight hours at the time of writing this review) without smudging or migrating.

MAC Feline Kohl Power

MAC Feline Kohl Power ($14.50 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “rich black,” and though it is limited edition (yet again!), it has been out several times previously–so you may already have it (or perhaps you simply want a backup). I think the last time it came out, I purchased two or three backups myself!

MAC Very Important Platinum Nail Lacquer

MAC Very Important Platinum Nail Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a a metallic pewter with silver micro-shimmer strewn it. It has a frost finish, and MAC officially describes it as a “dirty platinum.”  Like Soiree, I found the finish to be much more metallic than that of a typical frost, and it has the brush strokes to prove it!  Shown here with two coats, I found it impossible not to have far too many brush strokes messing up the overall look of the polish.  I was disappointed in the consistency, too, which was thick and gloppy.  The color is gorgeous (I love pewter anything!), but the formula itself is one of MAC’s worst in the past couple years–and I like MAC’s lacquers in general.
