While I work on editing photos, testing products, and writing up reviews, here are some photos and swatches in the meantime. Oh — and here’s something that’s funny and GREAT news for you: I received press samples at lunch time, and all the products I ordered yesterday are out for delivery today (but haven’t arrived yet!) — so I have a ton of duplicates, which means we’ll be having a massive Archie’s Girls giveaway with the products I bought. Cheers all around! (Please hold questions until I’ve had a chance to review.)
MAC Carbon Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense black.” It’s a medium black with a matte finish. NARS Night Clubbing has a soft micro-shimmer. Urban Decay Crave is similar in color. Carbon is part of the permanent range, as well as come out in various palettes over the years, so you may find you have it at least once in your collection already.
MAC Push the Edge Pigment ($21.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “deep bright purple with pearl.” It’s a rich violet purple with strong fuchsia-red undertones and a frosted finish. NARS Trash is a bit darker and less shimmery, plus it is a cream product. Make Up For Ever #26 is also a cream product, but it is more similar in color.
