Thanks to Google for alerting us when Polki updated with the latest info on the re-release of Slimshines!  (It is so great to be asleep and see the alert in the morning, all the leg work is done, yes!)  The launch of Slimshines will feature seven new shades as well as several relaunches (as per Specktra) of past shades.  I am surprised Kissable wasn’t there, as I remember that was a fan favorite.  Oh, well, I never use mine myself!

How do you feel about Slimshines?  Did you love them before?  Happy they’re returning?

MAC Cosmetics – The Originals Review, Product Swatches

Overall, I enjoyed this collection enough that I found several products interesting enough to purchase. I felt like the lipsticks and lipglasses turned out to be my favorites, but I have been on a bit of lip kick lately. I really loved Back to Del Rio, Rozz Revival, Supersequin, and Utter Pervette! The glosses were all lovely, but of course I was attracted to both Avarice and Real Desire–two shades I would rarely wear. Nico Now is gorgeous and I think will be popular with most as it is quite the universal shade. Surprisingly, I found that I adored Daisychain and Ochre Style out of the eyeshadows–if we didn’t have Smoke Signals come out, I would love Charred and Clue, too.  Parrot is as to be expected; I can’t see any difference myself from the original formulation.  The pigments are all permanent, but they at least selected three shades that rock (Golden Olive, Melon, and Violet).  The reflects glitters are to die for, but you should have already known that as I covered them in their entirety from my PRO store haul!  Antique Gold is the must-get, if you like playing with color; Very Pink is a great glitter to use on cheeks and lips, though.  The collection offers something to everyone, even if addicts had expected their favorite hard-to-find products. Don’t knock it ’til you swatch it!
