Bronze Hero

MAC Bronze Hero Lustre Drops ($21.00 for 0.60 fl. oz.) is a rich, deep copper with warm, reddish undertones and a fine, pearl sheen. It had sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-sheer coverage, if desired. There was subtle color and dewiness on my complexion when I used it as a cheek highlighter/bronzer. It also worked well mixed in with body cream for a subtle, warming effect on legs and decolletage. The consistency was thin, definitely watery, and blendable without lifting up base products easily. On its own, the highlighter wore well for eight hours on me.

Lustre Drops are supposed to be “water-based” liquid highlighter that has a “sheer, natural-looking” effect that is “luminous” and “shimmering.” They can be mixed with base products (like primer, moisturizer, or foundation) as well as worn alone as a spot highlighter. I like this type of product best for mixing and getting a dewier finish to my base or as a base for underneath blush or highlighter. If you’re someone who enjoys a subtle highlight on the skin or likes a dewy finish, the formula works nicely on its own for just that result. They come in a puff paint-like bottle, and the fine nozzle is great for controlling how much you want.

Oh My Banana

MAC Oh My Banana Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a brighter mix of warm-toned shades from pale gold to coral to plum. This palette has a few repromotes, including two permanent, single shades (Retrospeck and Soft Brown), so you may find your stash already have these, if you’re a long-time MAC fan. Of the three palettes in the collection, I felt like this was the easiest to use cohesively, and I liked the contrast added by the coral and plum shades. Overall, the palette was good–easy to work with, pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing–and one of MAC’s better pre-made palettes!

Note, the palette only contains 0.10 oz. worth of eyeshadow, and MAC’s 9-pan palettes and quads typically contain 0.19 oz. at the same price ($32). This collection’s palettes didn’t seem small, and the pans seemed like they would contain a fair amount of product, so I was surprised to discover the pans must be very shallow!

This collection launches on May 18th.

MAC Cha-Cha-Cha Cremesheen Glass ($21.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a milky, almost jelly-like finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but the milky consistency did result in color gathering in my lip lines. The gloss itself did not look streaky, which is no easy feat for this lighter type of shade. The texture of the gloss was creamy, lightweight, and smooth without being tacky. It wore well for two and a half hours and felt moisturizing.

Fruit a La La

MAC Fruit a La La Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bold, bright mix of orange and pink with three neutral shades thrown into the mix. Overall, I think eyeshadows applied well to bare skin and wore for most of the day, and as I often find true of MAC’s eyeshadow (especially more matte shades), they go on better in practice than just swatched. Some of the shades in the palette are repromotes from various palettes released over the years.

Note, the palette only contains 0.10 oz. worth of eyeshadow, and MAC’s 9-pan palettes and quads typically contain 0.19 oz. at the same price ($32). This collection’s palettes didn’t seem small, and the pans seemed like they would contain a fair amount of product, so I was surprised to discover the pans must be very shallow!

New Galaxy

MAC New Galaxy Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a very, very light gray base with multi-colored blue, pink, and purple pearl. The base color was rather sheer, and I didn’t feel like it added color to my lips but a fair amount of shimmer. The gloss would work well for layering, as the cooler tone of it could alter underlying lip colors nicely. I wish MAC had described this one as sheer, though! The texture was smooth, slightly thinner than the average Lipglass, and comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted for.

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness. I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

Love in the Glades

MAC Love in the Glades Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is like a smoky take on tropical greens and blues. The palette had a mix of cooler undertones and neutral undertones, which made it one of the cooler-toned palettes that I’ve come across. The lightest shade (Grey Stroke) was the biggest miss in the palette, but the other six applied fairly well, had good pigmentation, and lasted for seven to nine hours on me (without primer).

Note, the palette only contains 0.10 oz. worth of eyeshadow, and MAC’s 9-pan palettes and quads typically contain 0.19 oz. at the same price ($32). This collection’s palettes didn’t seem small, and the pans seemed like they would contain a fair amount of product, so I was surprised to discover the pans must be very shallow!
