OCC Mimosa Loose Colour Concentrate

OCC Mimosa Loose Colour Concentrate ($12.00 for 0.088 oz. / 2.5 grams) is described as a “orange with strong gold shimmer.” It’s a brightened light-medium orange with an orange-gold shimmer and sheen. Milani Primary is darker. Maybelline Fierce & Tangy is fairly similar, but because it doesn’t have a strong gold sheen, it appears a little darker, more yellow-toned. Chanel Tigerlily is a softer, lighter orange.

Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold/Mr. Silver Eyedream Highlight Duo

Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold/Mr. Silver Eyedream Highlight Duo ($19.00 for 0.26 oz.) is described as a “yellow gold” and an “icy silver.”  Each eyeshadow is 0.13 oz., which is over double the average-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.), and the price point is very palatable for two shades.  A lot of the duos, though, are more basic than not, so whether any are must-haves depends on the size of your stash.

Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a limited edition, warm-toned summer quad that features a pale white gold, medium-dark fuchsia, coppery orange-coral, and deep, dark molten brown. It’s packaged in a metallic bronze case with a dual-ended sponge-tipped applicator and full-sized mirror inside.  The packaging feels and looks luxe, and despite its metallic finish, seemed to keep fingerprints pretty well-disguised.

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.
