Just received my order earlier this afternoon, so I’m still in the process of working through the eyeshadows for wear, but I hope you’ll enjoy this quick look featuring a couple of photos and lots of swatches. The MAC x Brooke Shields Gravitas Eyeshadow Palette ($85.00 for 0.68 oz.) was quick to sell out on launch day, but the collection will also launch at other retailers like Nordstrom, Dillard’s, Bloomingdale’s, and Macy’s. I”ll have a full review, photos, swatches, thoughts, etc. soon, so sit tight and hold any questions for that post! I appreciate it
MAC describes it as a “lightly frosted, tinted powder that gives skin sheer, natural colour effects and highlights.” Initially, it had a stiffer, harder surface, but after a couple of swatches, the powder seemed to give and became softer and easier to use. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage, if desired. It had a lightweight feel, didn’t look powdery on, and blended easily on the skin. The bronzer wore well for eight hours before fading on me. I was disappointed that the compact only contained 0.17 oz., whereas a full-sized Bronzing Powder (from the permanent range) contains 0.35 oz. If you prefer your compacts with mirrors, note that this one doesn’t have one.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.

MAC x Brooke Shields Collection launched online today on MAC’s website (still to launch on other retailers’ websites as well as in-stores on October 2nd!). For international locations, I just have “October 2014″ but nothing more specific than that. I received product samples earlier today, but I didn’t receive the Gravitas eyeshadow palette–however, I did purchase it this morning and selected overnight shipping, so I should get it sometime tomorrow (could be anytime tomorrow, as late as 8PM!). I’ll have full reviews, photos, swatches, dupes, and all that jazz for this collection tomorrow!
