MAC Beautifully Bare Cremesheen Glass ($21.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a creamy, smooth consistency that wasn’t sticky at all. The gloss was comfortable to wear, and though it settled into lip lines, it applied evenly and did not appear streaky. It lasted for two and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.

Cremesheen Glass is supposed to be creamy, hydrating, and sheerer. In general, Cremesheen Glass tends to have a creamier, milkier quality to it, which makes it comfortable and hydrating to wear, but it often looks streaky, settles into lip lines, and is shorter wearing.

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Buddy Powder Blush Duo ($33.00 for 0.35 oz.) consists of a rose with a matte finish and a shimmery plum. Swirled together, they create a pearly, rosy plum. The matte side wasn’t quite as good as the shimmery shade, but they were both decent to good blushes. The two shades work well together, layered, or worn alone, though the shimmery shade is narrow enough that most blush brushes would not fit well (without getting some of the matte shade on them).

Enoki

Bite Beauty Enoki Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light, peachy brown with warmer, yellow undertones and a satin finish. The color coverage was fully opaque in one pass, while the lipstick had a smooth, lightweight texture that applied without dragging or skipping on the lip. It did not have too much slip, though, so it adhered well and did not slide around. I noticed a bit of color that sunk into my lip lines after two hours of wear, while the total wear time was closer to four and a half hours.

The Amuse Bouche formula is supposed to have a “soft texture” with “extreme moisture” and “bold, creamy” color. It’s a denser, very pigmented formula that is lightly to moderately hydrating, lasts four to six hours (on average), and applies evenly with a lightweight texture that has a creamy look but doesn’t slide around easily. The formula is citrus-scented.

Authentic Red

MAC Authentic Red Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark ruby red with cooler undertones and fine, red pearl paired with a natural sheen–a little shine but not truly glossy. The consistency was denser and lightly tacky, so the bullet dragged a bit as it applied but moved more readily as the warmth of my lips melted the lipstick. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was somewhat buildable, that went on evenly. It wore well for five hours, left a subtle, reddish stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Compassion

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Compassion Mineralize Skinfinish Natural ($33.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with subtle, golden pearl. It’s part of the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural family, so it had noticeably less shimmer and was nowhere near as metallic on the skin as a result, but it wasn’t matte like the permanent range of Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powders either.

The finish is what made it a more standout product to me–it was luminous without being visibly shimmery on the skin. It had a soft, smooth consistency that was blendable and easy to work with, while it had full coverage in one layer, though it could easily be sheered out as well. It wore well eight hours on me before fading.

Loubichrome I

Christian Louboutin Loubichrome I Nail Colour ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright lemony chartreuse–it only has a touch of green–paired with fine threads of metallic pearl. It had nearly opaque coverage after two coats, and the consistency was smooth, spreadable without pooling along the edges of my nails, and went on fairly evenly. Of the three, this shade was the only one that could have applied better. It wore well for seven days on me with minor tip wear.

The limited edition bottles and shades are inspired by Specchio, which is a “laminated leather with a mirror-like quality.” The polishes themselves are not holographic; they are merely chrome-like with respect to the finish–so high shine, fine shimmer that gives them a more metallic look overall. I think the packaging holds the most allure, as the handles have the signature, stiletto handle with a metallic, rainbow finish–they are stunning and look even better in person than the effect looks in press photos. All three shades from the miniature launch applied fairly well to well, were mostly opaque to opaque in pigmentation, and lasted a full week on me.

For some reason, I’ve found the $30 price point–even for a mini–more palatable than the $50 price point for a full-sized bottle; perhaps it’s because I’ve never come close to finishing a bottle of polish… Nonetheless, keep that in mind as they are miniature (0.20 fl. oz.) and I’m sure there are dupes across many brands for those more interested in the color than the packaging.
