MAC Divine Night Mineralize Blushes

MAC Divine Night Mineralize Blush ($27.50 for 0.12 oz.) includes three new and limited edition shades just in time for the holidays. The finishes on these is a bit more metallic, high-shine than other iterations of the formula, so those who are very sensitive to pores being emphasized may want to look elsewhere for their blush fix.  It’s definitely a trade-off, and for some, it might be pretty enough on to overlook, but it’s going to be a matter of preference.  The textures of all three were soft, finely-milled,and very blendable, but they were prone to fading and did not last as long as regular powder blushes usually do (including MAC’s blushes).

MAC Centre of Attention Mineralize Skinfinish

MAC Centre of Attention Mineralize Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a two-in-one product that features a section that’s described as a “24 carat gold shimmer” and a larger area described as a “pastel peachy pink with fine pink shimmer.”  This was the least impressive Mineralize Skinfinish of the three, because the texture of the inner shade is quite gritty and chunky; it’s a very loose, glittery shade, so that flaw reaches everywhere–glittery bits visible on the cheeks, sheerer color payoff, and is just an unflattering texture against the skin.  I don’t have huge, huge pores (maybe you disagree!), but the texture of both the inner and outer (as well as swirled together) all emphasize pores to some degree with the outer shade emphasizing pores the least (only slightly).  For newer readers, MAC’s Mineralize products tend to be shorter-wearing on me, which is one of my biggest complaints about the formula overall; and Centre of Attention is no exception with the swirled shade almost completely missing-in-action after seven hours.

Too Faced Be Merry, Be Bright Makeup Palettes (Part 1)

Too Faced Be Merry, Be Bright Makeup Palettes ($45.00 for 1.28 oz.) features two palettes, one titled Be Merry, the other titled Be Bright. Each palette has six eyeshadows and two cheek colors. Each eyeshadow contains 0.06 oz. of product, while each cheek color contains 0.14 oz. The two palettes come in a zippered makeup bag with a full-sized Lash Injection mascara. The approximate value of this palette is $285, with a breakout of: $216 worth of eyeshadow, $48 worth of cheek products, and $21 worth of mascara.  Overall, the Be Merry, Be Bright Makeup palette set is quite nice, and the Be Merry palette has solid pigmentation across the board with no troublesome shades; the “worst” was Chocolate Moon, which was a little drier compared to the other shades.  The worst performer in Be Merry was Mauvelous, which was prone to fall out and sheerer.  The majority of the products wore well, with the eyeshadows ranging from eight to nine hours on average with Mauvelous was the only one that had fall out during wear.

Chanel Accent (84) Joues Contraste Powder Blush

Chanel Accent (84) Joues Contraste Powder Blush ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “luminous pink beige.” It’s a softened, medium-dark rosy brown with neutral-warm undertones and a soft shimmer finish. The finish seemed more shimmery than a satin, but it doesn’t look like a full-on frost. Kevyn Aucoin Natura is warmer, lighter. NARS Douceur is lighter. MAC Baby Don’t Go is much lighter. MAC Stylish Me is darker, warmer. MAC Superb is warmer, more frosted. Burberry Earthy is browner, less shimmery. See comparison swatches.
