MAC Perky Lipglass (Taste Temtpation)

MAC Perky Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone shimmering lilac.” It’s a light-medium lilac purple with lighter lilac and multi-colored shimmer. On my lips, it adds a light lavender color but it’s the multitude of shimmer that really stands out. MAC Docile is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Gone Romancin’ is lighter and more tinted. MAC Frozen Dream has less shimmer.

MAC Grey Friday Nail Lacquer

MAC Grey Friday Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “black matte with silver suede pearl.” It’s a charcoal black with multi-sized silver shimmer and micro-shimmer. The finish is not quite matte, but it’s not glossy. It has that suede-like finish MAC was hinting at. China Glaze Stone Cold has less shimmer. MAC Military is similar but more matte and has less shimmer. Nubar Midnight is the closest, as it has a higher shimmer content than the other two shades I mentioned, but it, too, has more of a matte finish.

MAC 3N & Runaway Red Lipsticks (Making Pretty)

MAC Making Pretty Lipsticks ($28.00 for 0.15 oz. each) are available in two shades: 3N (milky pastel pink) and Runaway Red (rich red-blue).  Both shades are repromotes, though they were well-received shades.  The collection online yesterday, and I immediately placed my order and overnighted everything, but unfortunately 3N has already sold out.  To find it, you’ll have to find a MAC freestanding on December 13th or Pro store on December 6th.

MAC Silver Dusk Iridescent Powder (Making Pretty)

MAC Silver Dusk Iridescent Powder ($65.00 for 0.51 oz.) is described as a “pinky beige with silver shimmer.” It’s a mix of soft pink and silver shimmer, though when applied to my cheek as a highlight, it read more like a delicate silver shimmer. It’s similar to products like Chanel Reverie. Lots of loose sparkle and shimmer, so depending on your threshold for sparkle, you may love or loathe this product. MAC recommends building it up gradually, and also notes that it is a multi-tasking product that can be worked into foundation, moisturizer, and so on.
