MAC x Ellie Goulding I’ll Hold My Breath Blush Duo

MAC I’ll Hold My Breath Blush Duo ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.) consists of a brown and pink, with the brown taking up about two-thirds of the space in the pan. Not bad, not out of this world. I wish they would have just kept it as true duo–half of each–as I think it would be more versatile that way. They are more dupable, particularly the coral (even within MAC’s range). It is a larger compact, and it’s nice to see that they put together special packaging for the collection.

Stila A Whole Lot of Love Gift Set

Stila A Whole Lot of Love Gift Set ($59.00 for 1.44 oz.) includes four blushes and 20 eyeshadows. It’s a palette with hits and misses, but a lot of the eyeshadows ran on the dusty or powdery side, even if they felt soft or smooth in their respective pans.
