Almondine

MAC Almondine Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a fine, golden sheen. It has a Lustre finish, which is a sheerer coverage formula with a stronger sheen. It had a soft, lightly emollient consistency that glided across the lips easily, and it only had minimal settling in my lip lines. The lipstick had semi-sheer coverage that went on evenly–the resulting effect was warmer, pinker natural lip color with shimmer and shine–that lasted for two and a half hours.

Glamourize Me

MAC Glamourize Me Cream Colour Shadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) features six Cream Colour Shadows. The formula is supposed to have “medium, buildable colour” that is long-wearing, water-resistant, and non-drying. They felt a lot like the Cream Colour Base formula to me: soft, very emollient, and almost “greasy” in a way. They go on thin and have a slight tackiness, and they are hard to build-up or use more than one or two shades at a time, as they look uneven and patchy with more than that. The wear ranged from a few hours to six hours, but a couple of shades creased soon after applying but did not worsen for a few hours later (think of it as “initial creasing” because they don’t really dry down). I think the formula is most suited used all over the lid as a wash or as a lightly tacky, wet base for powder eyeshadows.

The Shining Hour

MAC The Shinnig Hour Dazzleshadow Quad ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes four sparkling eyeshadows in shades of white, gold, peach, and brown. The Dazzleshadow formula is supposed to be very sparkly with a “3D effect” with “stay-true” adhesion that has “minimal fallout.” They’re fun and sparkly, but they perform best as sheer washes of sparkle, patted over a more pigmented product, or applied over a glitter adhesive. They are pretty dismal on their own–sheerer, drier, fallout-prone, and short wearing–and are improved when applied damp–better pigmentation, smoother coverage, less fallout–but still have their share of problems without more help (tacky base, layered over a more pigmented eyeshadow, etc.). I noticed that the eyeshadows in the quad seemed to be drier and looser in the pan compared to the singles I’ve tried in the past.

Ice Follies

MAC Ice Follies Crystal Glaze Gloss ($21.00 for 0.41 oz.) is a a sheer, golden base with pink and blue pearl. This particular shade was described as sheer, though it was so sheer that I’d consider it more like translucent with sheer pearl coverage.

The Crystal Glaze Gloss formula is supposed to be an “ultra-moisturizing gloss” that has “an intense, glossy shine.” The texture was soft, smooth, and almost jelly-like–but denser and not quite as slippery. It felt balm-like on the lips and had no tackiness at all (completely unlike most of their gloss formulas) and had a very light vanilla scent. The glossiness lasted for two and a half hours, but it was very hydrating while worn.

MAC Moons of Saturn Full Face Kit ($40.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes two Cream Colour Bases and one Sculpting Powder. The Cream Colour Base formula is supposed to have sheer, buildable coverage with a dewy finish that lasts for “eight hours on face and body” and has “lasting wear for hours on eyes. I tend to prefer Cream Colour Bases on cheeks for better wear and application, but for use on eyes, they’re best used as an all-over wash of color or on the brow bone to add shine. I think this particular kit worked well together, though I’m expecting that the more orange-toned powder to be less-than-ideal for many as it is very warm and orange.
