MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette
MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette ($27.50 for 0.13 oz.) contains three shades of lipstick; Candy Yum Yum and Violetta are both permanent shades, while Moxie is a repromote of an older, discontinued shade (that was also brought back last fall with By Request). The palette contains slightly more than an individual lipstick, which is 0.10 oz., so it’s not a value-packed palette, but you may like that you can get three shades for the price point (and individually, not that they’re sold that way, you couldn’t get two for this price). It will also depend on whether you’re a fan of lip palettes or not. The palette contains an itty, bitty lip brush and mirror.

Candy Yum Yum is described as a “matte neon pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, brightened, neon fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage, though it did seem slightly darker than the tube version. It’s the kind of shade that will stain and wears six to eight hours easily. It’s neither drying nor hydrating, and it is lightly creamy–enough not to tug, but it isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Urban Decay Anarchy is darker, less cool-toned. Maybelline Electric Fuchsia is slightly darker. MAC Dear Diary is not as bright. MAC Night Blooming is darker, more muted. OCC Yaoi is shimmery, darker. OCC Nylon is even brighter. See comparison swatches.

Moxie is described as a “mid-tone blue pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark, pinky-red with a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage, and this shade wears six to eight hours and stains. MAC Pink Poodle is lighter, pinker. Urban Decay Catfight is redder. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible is slightly cooler-toned. Guerlain Girly is glossier. Maybelline Vivid Rose is redder. MAC Impassioned is slightly lighter–less red. See comparison swatches.

Violetta is described as a “bright, clean violet purple [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a fuchsia-shimmered violet that leans more fuchsia than full-on purple. This is part of MAC’s permanent PRO range, which can be purchased by anyone online. It is semi-opaque with a frosted finish. It lasts four to six hours on me usually, and it is neither drying nor hydrating. Illamasqua ESP is purpler. Milani Violet Volt is more fuchsia. MAC Heroine is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Nude Palette
MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Nude Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Nude Palette ($27.50 for 0.13 oz.) contains three limited edition shades of lipstick with a nude theme. The palette contains slightly more than an individual lipstick, which is 0.10 oz., so it’s not a value-packed palette, but you may like that you can get three shades for the price point (and individually, not that they’re sold that way, you couldn’t get two for this price). It will also depend on whether you’re a fan of lip palettes or not. The palette contains an itty, bitty lip brush and mirror.

Vivid Image is described as a “light white pink [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a light-medium, milky pink with subtle yellow undertones and a barely-there sheen. The consistency is creamy, slightly thick, and can be unforgiving if lips are exfoliated prior to application. It wore for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Beauty is lighter, more beige. MAC Raspberry Swirl is darker, pinker. MAC You’re Perfect Already is slgihtly more beige. MAC Dreaminess is a touch pinker. Chanel Candeur is sheerer. OCC Femme is darker, pinker. See comparison swatches.

Antonio’s Girls is described as a “light peach [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium, warm-toned peach with just a smidgen of pink. It has a satiny sheen and mostly opaque color coverage. It lasted for four hours and was just a touch drying. Chanel Sentiment is darker. MAC Sweet & Sour is more orange. MAC Shy Girl is a bit darker. Chanel Peregrina is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Art Directed is described as a “glossy sheer champagne [with a Glaze finish].” It’s a shimmering, medium beige with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer. The finish looked more metallic on the lips, and it had sheer, shimmering color payoff. It lasted an hour and a half on me when I wore it. It was somewhat drying. MAC Smash Hit is more glittery and warmer. MAC Pleasureseeker is warmer and more coral/orange when applied but applied it is a less shimmery version. See comparison swatches.

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Creative Copper Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Creative Copper Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Creative Copper Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Creative Copper Eyeshadow Palette ($43.50 for 0.19 oz.) is a new and limited edition palette that launches in-stores on September 12th. It contains six eyeshadows with a warm-toned theme.  This palette is decent to good, though it’s not perfect and at the price point, you can find better-performing products.  If these are the types of colors you’d wear often and see yourself really reaching for this palette often, I think you’d probably still enjoy it. For one or two shades, though, it is less likely to be worth it.  These shades performed well enough to be worn alone without too much issues–most of them made it to eight hours of wear with minimal fading, though the Lustres had some fall out, which is par for the course with that finish.

Easy Gesture is described as a “pale warm beige [with a Frost finish].” It’s a light peach with slight beige tones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good color payoff and was easy to blend out on the skin. LORAC Nude is more beige. LORAC Champagne is warmer, more beige. Urban Decay Skimp is less frosted. Urban Decay Sellout is warmer. MAC Orb is less frosted. See comparison swatches.

Artistic License is described as a “mid-tone frosty pink gold [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a warm, peachy-pink with a golden sheen. It had decent color payoff but is somewhat sheer. It could be softer, more buttery, for a Veluxe Pearl. Urban Decay X is similar. MAC Dynamic Duo 1 #1 has a less pronounced golden sheen. MAC Expensive Pink is more orange, darker. Chanel Intuition #1 is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Dear Cupcake is described as a “mid-tone coral pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a light-mediu,, pink-coral with a mostly matte finish. It was powdery, and it had semi-opaque color payoff. It is a repromote. MAC Rose is pinker. MAC Free to Be and MAC Early Bird are both more coral, less pink. Chanel Rose Favorite is darker, pinker. See comparison swatches.

Creative Copper is described as a “sparkling true gold [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a medium-dark, brown-toned gold with copper sparkle. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but it had a Lustre finish, so it had chunky sparkle/glitter that sat on top and didn’t bind well with the underlying color. MAC Brownluxe #3 is more orange, less sparkly. theBalm Manic Maribel is slightly more coppery. Urban Decay Limelight is very similar. Urban Decay Penny Lane is more copper. MAC Retrospeck #2 is less sparkly, warmer. MAC Amber Lights is browner, less sparkly. MAC Up the Ante is browner, cream. See comparison swatches.

Golden Touch is described as a “tarnished taupe [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned brown with a golden sheen–but there’s a mutedness to it that I see as a “taupe” tint. It had good pigmentation, and it had a soft, blendable texture. Bobbi Brown Golden Bronze is darker, cream. Maybelline Downtown Brown is warmer. bareMinerals Schmooze is similar. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #2 is also similar. Urban Decay Suspect is more taupe. MAC Cactus Thorn is similar. MAC Patina is more taupe. Benefit Thanks a Latte is less warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

Carbonized is described as a “deep warm brown [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice color payoff and a soft, blendable texture. MAC Divine Decadence is lighter, warmer. LORAC Sable is more matte. Urban Decay West is more metallic. MAC Life’s Luxury is a cream product. MAC Make Your Mark is lighter. See comparison swatches.

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Teal Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Teal Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Teal Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Teal Eyeshadow Palette ($43.50 for 0.19 oz.) is a new and limited edition palette that launches in-stores on September 12th. It contains six eyeshadows. Like a lot of MAC’s limited edition palettes, it’s a mixed bag. Some shades performed decent to well, others were more disappointing. These perform best over a primer, and I wouldn’t recommend wearing them without one for two reasons: 1) they don’t last well  (six hours), and 2) Colourful Life is prone to staining without a primer.  Even though four of the six shades are decent, one is an abysmal failure and the other is only slightly less worse.

Sex & Disco is described as a “sparkling cool silver [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a lavender-tinted gray with silver sparkle. This shade embodies a true Lustre finish, as it was powdery, glittery, and sheer–it’s the type of texture that doesn’t bind together, so you’re left with sparkle that gets everywhere but the lid. A lot of the fall out ended up underneath the eye during application, but there were still a few stray sparkles after wearing it all day. MAC Time to Tango is darker, purpler. MAC Amethyst is warmer. MAC Silverwear is less sparkly. See comparison swatches.

Colourful Life is described as a “dark teal [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a rich, jewel-toned teal that leans green and has a satiny sheen. It had fairly good color payoff, but it has a slightly dry, stiffer texture (doesn’t feel like a Veluxe Pearl). This shade is very prone to staining so I recommend wearing an opaque base underneath to prevent staining the lid (and washing brushes immediately after use). Fyrinnae Gender Bent is bluer. Milani Teal the Truth is bluer. Maybelline Edgy Emerald is lighter. MAC Surf USA is darker, slightly greener. Sugarpill Darling is warmer. Make Up For Ever #168 is greener. See comparison swatches.

Freshwater is described as a “mid-tone sparkling blue with blue pearl [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a medium blue with a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft, though thinner/not as dense as my permanent pan of Freshwater. This shade is available individually as a permanent product. Disney Royal is more matte. CoverGirl Sapphire Flare is similar, slightly sparkly. Sugarpill Afterparty is brighter. NYX Kiss in Casablanca is darker. See comparison swatches.

Nighttrain is described as a “charcoal grey with crystalline frost [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a blackened gray with silver shimmer and a frosted finish. It had fairly good color payoff, was just slightly dry, and blended out decently. It felt more like a frost than a Lustre finish. It is also a repromote. MAC Deep Cravings is less shimmery. LORAC Slate is bluer. Urban Decay Asphalt is similar. Urban Decay Ace is slightly cooler-toned. Urban Decay Gunmetal is grayer. See comparison swatches.

Sketchbook is described as a “glittery blackened olive [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a dark, warm-toned olive brown with dirty gold sparkle and shimmer. It had a very stiff, dry texture that resulted in sheer, uneven color payoff. With a fluffy brush, I was able to get some color and blendability, but it’s a rather poor shade when all was said and done. It does have a Lustre finish, so the sheerer color payoff isn’t unexpected, but the dry, uneven application was. Dior Bonne Etoile #3 is less sparkly. MAC Gilt by Association is darker. Giorgio Armani #6 is less sparkly. See comparison swatches.

Fashion Legend is described as a “black with pink pearl [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a cool-toned, sooty black with very fine blue, violet, and pink shimmers (which you can’t really discern once applied–just looks like a soft black). It was a little dry but had semi-opaque color. The texture seemed more like a velvet than a lustre. Marc Jacobs The Mod #2 is slightly darker. bareMinerals Lights Down isn’t as cool-toned. See comparison swatches.

MAC x Antonio Lopez 129SE Brush Quick Review & Photos

MAC x Antonio Lopez 129SE Brush
MAC x Antonio Lopez 129SE Brush

MAC x Antonio Lopez 129SE Powder/Blush Brush ($38.50) is a special edition of the 129 brush, and here, it has a shorter handle. I actually found the shape different, as it is a much longer brush head than the full-sized 129. Where the full-sized 129 has a domed, rounded edge, this special-edition brush doesn’t really flare out that much. (See the 129 here.) Looking back on some of the 129SEs I’ve reviewed, they all seem to be slightly different. This version of the 129SE also comes with a vinyl, zippered pouch that fits just the brush or else one or two lipglosses.

MAC’s 129 brush is not one of its best brushes, as it tends to be scratchy and sometimes prone to shedding (can vary from brush to brush). The 129SE released in this collection is worse, as it was even scratchier, and then the shape was less useful for applying blush. If you’re looking for a blush brush, the 129 would not get my recommendation (I prefer MAC’s 116 over the 129, if you’re looking to stay within MAC’s range).

MAC x Antonio Lopez Mirror Quick Review & Photos

MAC x Antonio Lopez Mirror
MAC x Antonio Lopez Mirror

MAC x Antonio Lopez Mirror ($25.00) is a limited edition square-shaped mirror with black, velveteen-like backing and along the sides and edges, and then a slightly raised, hard plastic illustrated drawing. The mirror is 3 inches by 3 inches. It’s held closed by a moderately strong magnet. The mirror underneath the lid is a regular mirror, and the mirror on the bottom is magnifying. If you’re a big fan of Antonio Lopez or enjoy the illustration, you may like the mirror.

From a functionality standpoint, I think the velveteen is a lint-magnet, so I can’t see tossing this into a bottomless bag as a great idea. If it had its own pocket, it should hold up all right. I’m just worried that it’s not a great mirror as far as practicality goes. One to sit on your vanity? Sure. Toted around with you? I’m not convinced it would withstand that kind of abuse.
