MAC & Beth Ditto Shade & Smoke Shadow/Liners

MAC Shade & Smoke Shadow/Liners ($22.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a brand new product type for the brand that launches specifically in this collection. There was originally five shades in the collection, but one was pulled out of production (no reason given). According to the very nondescript blurb online, it’s a dual-ended product with an eyeshadow on one end and a Greasepaint liner on the other end to create “the perfect smoky eye.” If you read through the color description that MAC gives, it’s easy to figure out which side is supposed to be the shadow and liner.

MAC & Beth Ditto Powder to the People Powder

MAC Powder to the People Powder ($38.00 for 0.35 oz.) is an odd product. At first, it seemed like a cheek product. It’s listed under Face > Powder on the brand’s website, but the description is, “Play with polka dots to create highlighting effects on your eyes by blending the colours of this ultra-fine, lightweight pressed powder with a velvet-smooth finish.” With all that said, it appears to be an eyeshadow “palette” so-to-speak, but I’m baffled as to why they put it under the powder category instead of under eyes/shadow, if that’s what this intended to be used for. Nevertheless, I tried it as an eyeshadow and swirled together as a cheek color.

Bobbi Brown Ballet Sparkle Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Ballet Sparkle Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “light pink glitter.” It’s a smattering of rosy pink (with warm undertones) glitter suspended in a translucent base. I don’t really have similar shades to this, since it’s more of a glitter than it is a regular eyeshadow, but Bobbi Brown Black Ruby (which has a sparkle finish as well) came the closest, but it had more color and a little less sparkle/glitter.

Bobbi Brown Silver Moon Sparkle Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Silver Moon Sparkle Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “light silvery glitter.” The description is rather accurate: it’s a light silver glitter with large, chunky particles. There’s really no underlying color, just silver glitter that’s suspended in an almost clear base. The closest dupe I could think of was Bobbi Brown Tinsel.
