Sweet Sweet Fantasy

MAC Sweet Sweet Fantasy Blush ($24.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a soft, slightly firmer texture. It was firm enough that there wasn’t any powdery excess when I patted my brush against the surface, but it wasn’t so firm that it was difficult to get color onto the brush or to blend out on the skin. The blush blended out fairly easily, though it was not the most effortless coral blush I’ve come across, so I do recommend building up and diffusing as you go. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

All I Want

MAC All I Want Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium champagne gold with a lightly frosted sheen. It had medium coverage that was somewhat buildable but never made it to fully opaque on the lips. The texture was smooth, didn’t feel gritty from the shimmer, and applied evenly for the most part. It wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me. This is a repromote.

I'm That Chick You Like

MAC I’m That Chick You Like Eyeshadow Quad ($41.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a warm-toned set of neutral shades that leans more shimmery. It is housed in a “glitter” trimmed compact, where the glitter looks and seems like glitter, but it is completely smooth to the touch. The shades are more dupable than not, and while it’s not the worst we’ve seen from MAC, it isn’t the greatest either!

My Mimi

MAC My Mimi Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($45.50 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium copper with warm, brownish undertones and a gold, sparkly finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage, but the texture was drier and more prone to separating–perhaps the larger bits of sparkle strewn through the powder were the issue. It took more effort to blend and diffuse the edges, as the color looked somewhat patchy initially. I don’t typically have issues blending out this formula, so I was rather surprised by the application of this shade on the skin. It lasted for eight hours before fading on me (out of the 10 the brand promises for this formula).

The price seems unusually high; regular Extra Dimension Skinfinishes are $33.00 for 0.31 oz., and while it’s not unusual for MAC to up-charge for collaborations by a bit, it’s usually a $1-4, not over $10. It seems like it is the result of the design of the powder itself, which is intricate to be sure, but I’m still surprised by the increase in price overall! I wish the product was better, too, because I know that this was one of the “star” products in the launch, to at least make the price more justifiable. It did seem, to my memory, that the price increases across most of the products in this collection were higher than normal (compared to past collaborations).

A Latte Sheen/Semi-Sweet

MAC A Latte Sheen/Semi-Sweet Studio QuikTrik Stick ($32.00 for 0.42 oz.) has a medium, shimmery copper shade on one end and a medium-dark, reddish-brown on the other. The duo seems like the bronzing pairing to me, as both shades will add warmth, luminosity, and a healthy sheen to the skin–very summer to my eye!

The QuikTrik Stick is a double-ended, cream-based stick that’s supposed to work for highlighting, contouring, bronzing, or blushing. It is supposed to have buildable, blendable color and can be worn over bare skin or foundation. One side is more shimmery, while the other is darker and more natural (but still has a sheen from the creamier consistency) in finish. In general, the formula applies well to bare skin or over liquid foundation, as it is very emollient, blendable, and easy to spread across the skin, but I notice that it seemed to break up my foundation a bit after six hours of wear.

MAC Bare End/Earthnut Studio QuikTrik Stick ($32.00 for 0.42 oz.) has a light-medium, pearly gold on one end and then a medium, warm brown on the other end. The gold seems ideal for highlighting, while the darker shade could be used to bronze or contour (on warmer skin tones). This one applied a bit better and lasted a touch longer than some of the other duos, but it’s still faster to wear away than most powder blushes on me.
