MAC Tropical Taboo Mineralize Eyeshadows

MAC Tropical Taboo Collection’s Mineralize Eyeshadows ($23.50 for 0.10 oz.) come in six shades. All six are limited edition.  If you’ve been following this blog for a few years, you’ll know that MAC Mineralize and I, generally, don’t get along.  I love the way they look in their pots, and photographing the Mineralize collections is always fun–everything looks spectacular.  I’m always disappointed by their performance, as they never look as pretty applied as they do in their pots.  This is particularly true with the eyeshadows, and this year’s seemed worse to me than some of the more recent releases.  More or less, the formula seems to have gotten better over the years (finer, smoother, less powdery), but the texture on these, overall, felt like Mineralize Eyeshadows from three or four years ago–drier, kind of powdery.  Color payoff was an issue (even used with a damp brush), and then later on, wear, as all of these looked noticeably faded well before eight hours.

Le Metier de Beaute Platinum & Thunder True Color Eyeshadows

Le Metier de Beaute Platinum True Color Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light-medium silver with a frosted, metallic sheen. Applied dry, it had good color payoff and a frosted finish, while applied wet, it took on a more metallic finish and was fully opaque. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and smooth.  It lasted nine hours on the lid without creasing or fading (no primer). Disney Glass Slipper is bluer. L’Oreal Primped & Precious is darker. Lancome Style Section is darker. bareMinerals Cheers is lighter, less metallic. Inglot #447 is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches.
