MAC x Good Luck Trolls Lipglasses

MAC Saint Germain Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light cool pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with cool, blue undertones with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on somewhat evenly, but this one was really prone to emphasizing every little lip line. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Pure Fiction (LE, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Pastel Pink (P) is lighter (95% similar). NYX Merengue (P, $5.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). MAC Pink Fade (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

MAC x Good Luck Trolls Lipsticks

MAC Can’t Be Tamed Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sheer lime yellow [with a Cremesheen finish].” It is a semi-sheer, chartreuse with a natural sheen. It was somewhat uneven and a little streaky, while some color gathered into lip lines over time, though I’ll say it applied a lot better than I expected. This would work better over a lip liner or patted over another lipstick to layer and alter the color. The color lasted for two and a half hours on me. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Fragmented (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Chartreuse Pigment, Sun’s Out, Buns Out, Atlantic Blue Eyeshadows

MAC Chartreuse Pigment ($22.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, light-medium chartreuse with strong, warm undertones. It’s been around for ages, but it is being repromoted in this launch and will be specially packaged for the Good Luck Trolls collection. I’ve always loved this shade as a base color underneath brighter blues, greens, and teals. The nice thing about MAC Pigments is that they bind well on their own, so you can use them just damp and get really smooth, even application, or you can use their Mixing Medium for additional hold, but you can also apply them dry and get them to adhere and wear well on the lid. Chartreuse was richly pigmented, applied well, blended easily, and wore for eight hours before creasing on me.

MAC C’est Chic Eyeshadow x15 Palette

MAC Nordstrom C’est Chic Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.68 oz.) is a set of 15 matte, neutral-hued eyeshadows in a large, plastic compact. Each eyeshadow is full-sized, but they’re not easily removed (they are glued in). I can see this palette being really useful for someone who likes MAC’s matte eyeshadow formula and needs neutrals in their stash. Overall, it’s a good palette, and like most MAC eyeshadows, they tend to perform better when I used them on my eyes than just on my arm. I didn’t have any major issues with any shades; the texture is firmer but soft, blendable, and the pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to opaque (most shades were buildable). The wear was eight to nine hours, without primer. There are three permanent shades in this palette: Soft Brown, Corduroy, and Embark.
