MAC Chartreuse Bouquet & Lily White Pigments
MAC Chartreuse Bouquet Pigment ($21.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “shimmering acid green.” It’s a brightened, yellowed chartreuse wtih a soft, frosted sheen–somewhere between pearl and frost. Applied dry, it’s semi-opaque and yellower, and applied with a dampened brush, it’s greener, brighter, and opaque. It wore well for eight hours before starting to crease. Makeup Geek Pixie Dust (P, $5.99) is warmer, yellower. Kat Von D Birdcage (LE) is very similar–perhaps not as bright. CoverGirl Lime Light (310) (LE, $4.99) is lighter. Dior Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #1 (LE) is lighter, more muted. Make Up For Ever #304 (P, $20.00) is brighter, more metallic. NARS Rated R #1 (P, $24.00) is less shimmery. MAC Double Feature #2 #1 (LE, $15.00) is yellower. MAC Lucky Green (P, $15.00) is much darker. Make Up For Ever #171 (P, $20.00) is cooler-toned–less yellow. See comparison swatches.
Lily White (2014) Pigment ($21.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “pale butter-yellow shimmer.” It’s a pale gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It was semi-opaque when applied dry, and then it was opaque when applied with a dampened brush. The color lasted well without fading until after eight hours. Makeup Geek Bling (P, $5.99) is lighter. theBalm D3 (LE, $16.00) is darker. theBalm C1 (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Sand in the Glass (LE) is very similar. Make Up For Ever #101 (P, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Nylon (P, $15.00) is lighter, brighter. See comparison swatches.
As a heads up, Lily White (2014) is nothing like the version previously released. I’ve included a side-by-side comparison swatch for reference–it reminded me of how dazzling Lily White (2007) is.
