Sneak Peek: MAC Sophisticate Face Kit Photos & Swatches

MAC Sophisticate Face Kit
MAC Sophisticate Face Kit

MAC Sophisticate Face Kit ($49.50 for 0.43 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, two blushes, and two lipsticks. Worth pointing out right away is that the back of my palette says the second blush on the left is Simply Bliss, whereas Nordstrom’s product listing had Cream Soda in its place; I checked both of them, and the blush in this palette is slightly more pink-tinted and a little lighter but not by much. I hope to share a sneak peek of the Style Maven Face Kit tomorrow, so stay tuned!

MAC Claretluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio

MAC Claretluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bold combination (which I love seeing!), and I think the colors work really well together. This formula is supposed to have “sheer coverage with a soft finish” when applied dry and “super saturation of colour with metallic brilliance” when applied wet. My experience with this formula is that sometimes it can be really nice, other times it is a total miss. I think they are most practical used damp or over a slightly tacky base if you want to use them dry. They’re actually longer-wearing than you might think, given how they feel and swatch, but I usually get seven to eight hours of crease-free wear. With Claretluxe, I think it is most viable damp or if used dry, over a slightly tacky or white-hued base. The wear was good, and for the most part, the shades were true to description: sheer when used dry, richer when used damp.
