MAC x Charlotte Olympia Cream Colour Bases

MAC Golden Age Cream Colour Base ($23.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “metallic antique bronze.” It’s a shimmering, golden bronze with warm undertones and a fine, pearly shimmer-sheen finish. Unless heavily layered, it had a much more subdued sheen than overtly shimmery. On eyes, it lasted for five hours before creasing, and on cheeks, it lasted for six and a half hours before migrating noticeably. The texture is creamy, highly emollient, and never fully sets, so it retains a dewier finish overall. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage, as described. There was something about the base color that seemed harder to even out on the skin, though. This shade did include a warning that it is “not for use in the lip area” (Cream Colour Bases are multi-tasking products). Laura Mercier Seduction (P, $44.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Candyman (P, $8.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Casino (P, $36.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Summer Glow (P, $48.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Laguna (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC x Zac Posen Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo

MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a split-pan product with one shade being more of your traditional bronzer and the other being a pink-coral. Neither shade performed well, but the more blush-like shade had a really firm, hard press that required jabbing at the powder’s surface to get decent color out of it. This is at least the third time in recent memory that MAC has released a mid-tone brown/pink-coral blush duo, and I wonder why they haven’t been able to jump out of the box–it’s becoming like NARS Laguna/Orgasm over here.
