MAC Hey, Sailor Pigments ($21.00 for 0.15 oz.) include two shades: Naval Blue (deep smoky blue) and Old Gold (high frosted tarnished gold). They are in special packaging with the naval stripes wrapping around the clear jar and have a glossy navy blue cap (as compared to the rubberized black cap of the regular packaging). These were actually more user-friendly to use and didn’t seem to spill as much as the regular packaging, oddly enough. Please note that neither shade is recommended for use in the lip area.
Illamasqua Can Can Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright lilac purple.” It’s a medium lilac with strong purple tones and a cool undertone. The finish is matte. Benefit Fancy Pansy is closest in color, but it’s lighter and has a shimmery finish, so it appears different. Inglot #346 is lighter, more pastel.
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 ($52.00 for 1 oz.) is a “mineral-based, water-resistant primer with SPF 15 that neutralizes the skin, minimizes shine, and creates a smooth, uniform canvas.” It is also supposed to “[absorb] exess oils and [minimize] the appearance of pores.” This primer uses a mix of titanium dioxide (2.45%) and zinc oxide (4.20%) to provide the SPF content. As a result, you may get a white cast, particularly in pictures, as these are physical blockers (which work by reflecting), as opposed to chemical ones (which work by absorbing). I have worn it in photos on the blog, but primarily in ones without flash, which is where you would worry most about what kind of sunscreen agent you had on.
