Flourish Me Deep

MAC Flourish Me Deep Kajal Crayon ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The Kajal Crayon formula is designed to “be applied in the waterline for bold, saturated colour in one easy swipe” with long-wear. It had good color coverage in one stroke, and it was fully opaque with just a touch more. The consistency was smooth without being wet or waxy, yet it felt soft and smooth enough against the waterline that it was comfortable to apply while still getting good coverage. It wore well for eight and a half hours on my waterline and ten hours on my lower lash line.

Fallen Angel

MAC Fallen Angel Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. I wish it performed better, as the color was gorgeous, but it was semi-opaque and applied unevenly. It was thin, watery, and harder to control as the color spread too easily. The color lasted for six hours, stained, and was moderately drying over time–but it seemed shorter-wearing than most of the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours for me.

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.
