MAC Morning Mister Magpie Brow Duo

MAC Morning Mister Magpie Brow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) includes two shades of eyeshadow in a lavender-hued compact. Both shades are part of the permanent range, and they’re marketed here for brows, but they’re really just regular, powder eyeshadow. You could just as easily use these as eyeshadows as you could for filling in brows. Each shade is available in pan form for $10 each, so you could purchase them separately if desired. The advantage would be the ability to move them to different palettes/compacts as you please, as these two shades are glued in. I regularly use Brun as a brow shade, though for the past few days, I have used Soba and Brun mixed together just to try. Soba has shimmer, so it’s not my personal go-to finish for brows–I think it’s a great shade, just more as an eyeshadow, though.

MAC Nude Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Nude Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.19 oz.) contains four shades–two are permanent, two are new and limited edition–in a neutral-themed color combination. The quality of the quad is quite good, but if you already have one or both of the permanent shades, then it may not be the best bet to get two new shades. I could easily see this being a workhorse palette for some and redundant for others, if you’ve already loaded up on your neutral palettes.

MAC Refresh Mineralize Skinfinish Duo

MAC Refresh Mineralize Skinfinish Duo ($33.00 for 0.32 oz.) contains two shades, which are most easily considered a bronzer and highlighter. This set of shades was less powdery than Jolly Good, but it was still slightly powdery and didn’t wear quite as long as the average cheek colors do.

MAC Duchess Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Duchess Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.19 oz.) contains three limited edition shades and one permanent shade. It’s from the upcoming MAC x Osbournes collaboration collection. The textures of the eyeshadows in this quad were fairly good, with the matte shade being a little drier and harder to blend on the skin. All four shades work well together, but there have been many warm-toned quads like it before, so it may also be more dupable depending on what products you already have.

MAC Bloody Brilliant Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Bloody Brilliant Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.19 oz.) contains three new, limited edition shades and one permanent shade. It’s from the upcoming MAC x Osbournes collaboration collection. Generally, the color payoff across the quad was semi-sheer to semi-opaque, but it’s a softer, subtler look overall. I think fairer complexions will get the most mileage out of this color combination, as there will be more contrast seen, but shades like Fizzy Rose and Tickety Boo get somewhat lost on a medium complexion like mine. I wish it was more true-to-pan in regards to the pigmentation, though the textures of the palette were okay and the shades lasted between seven and eight hours before fading.

Urban Decay Streak Naked Flushed Palette

Urban Decay Streak Naked Flushed Palette ($30.00 for 0.49 oz.) just debuted on the brand’s website and will be available at all the other retailers later this month/early June. It features a bronzer, highlighter, and blush in a slim compact. The texture of the bronzer and highlighter were good, while the blush was powdery and didn’t apply evenly. I wish the highlighter was just a bit less metallic, as it tended to emphasize skin imperfections and enlarge pores.
