MAC Turquatic 50ml Perfume/Fragrance Photos

MAC Turquatic (50ml) ($49.50 for 1.7 fl. oz.) is new to the line-up, as it was previously only available in a 1 fl. oz. size. I reviewed the scent here, but I knew that with the repackaging, you would want to see photos, so I purchased this for photography.  I love the aesthetic of the bottle, even though the scent is not one I’m personally drawn to.  It debuts on August 11th and will be part of the permanent range–it is also available in Rollerball (0.20 fl. oz.), $20.00) and 1 fl. oz. bottle ($27.50).

NARS Bourbon Street Larger Than Life Eyeliner

NARS Bourbon Street Larger Than Life Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as “purple.” It’s a subtly red-based, medium purple with a very fine misting of reddened purple shimmer. It has a rather faded look to it, overall, because the pigmentation is not as dense as it looks in the pencil. The shade is more of an eggplant purple than a violet or blue-based purple, so it will complement hazel and brown eyes quite well. It’s less plum than many of my other comparable eyeliners, so I wasn’t able to find any that I felt were that similar.

NARS Galion Nail Lacquer

NARS Galion Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “stormy grey.” It’s a rich, creamy navy-tinged, blackened gray. I achieved opaque color in just two coats, and there was no streaking, bubbling, or difficulty in applying the shade onto my nails. The formula flowed evenly without being too thick or thin. This shade looks really crisp on the nails, and despite my nails being too long, it still seems to work on me.  I typically get a week of wear with NARS’ nail polishes.

Urban Decay Goddess Eyeshadow

This is one of the less impressive shades I’ve tried by Urban Decay–it lacks all the hallmarks of why Urban Decay’s eyeshadows are famous. It’s not buttery, soft, or smooth–it’s gritty and stiff to work with. It’s not richly pigmented; instead, it’s patchy, dry, and applies unevenly. The micro-glitter is the least concerning characteristic, even though there is some fall out, it’s not too troublesome–it’s really the poor texture and color payoff that make this shade worth passing on. Try Make Up For Ever #81 is a much better alternative!

Lancome The New Black Eyeshadow

Lancome The New Black Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “metallic shimmered black.” It’s part of Lancome’s permanent range of Color Design Eyeshadows (which is their individual range). Color Design Eyeshadows have varying finishes, but all of them are supposed to deliver “long-lasting, pigment-packed color [that] stays true for daylong wear.”
