MAC Blackground Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Antique Diamond Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Antique Diamond Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “frosted olive silver.” It’s an olive green-tinged brown with a general mutedness and a sprinkling of silver sparkle. MAC Enviable is darker and a powder product. Dior Khaki Design #3 is greener, less metallic, and a powder product. MAC Cakeshop is greener. Benefit Skinny Jeans is similar–it has a more satiny finish than a metallic one (and for the record, Birthday Suit is less green-tinged).

MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator ($28.00 for 3.4 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “foaming, cleansing, and exfoliating scrub” that combines volcanic ash with sugar crystals that is supposed to “leave skin feeling soft and comfortable clean.”  I’ve been using this exfoliator on and off since it originally debuted in 2008.  Why any brand rolls out limited edition skincare (or other basics, like eyeliners) is beyond my comprehension, but MAC has continued to re-release this exfoliator since 2008 in limited edition quantities.  However, it is now part of the permanent skin care range!
