MAC & Beth Ditto Shade & Smoke Shadow/Liners

MAC Shade & Smoke Shadow/Liners ($22.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a brand new product type for the brand that launches specifically in this collection. There was originally five shades in the collection, but one was pulled out of production (no reason given). According to the very nondescript blurb online, it’s a dual-ended product with an eyeshadow on one end and a Greasepaint liner on the other end to create “the perfect smoky eye.” If you read through the color description that MAC gives, it’s easy to figure out which side is supposed to be the shadow and liner.

MAC Out for Fun Lip & Cheek Colour

MAC Out for Fun Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour ($20.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark orange with a little hint of red, so it has a coral-like tint. On cheeks, it looks like a peachy-tangerine, and it can be built up to a more intense shade of orange. MAC Optimistic Orange is more orange. It’s like a cream version of MAC Modern Mandarin. Make Up For Ever #5 is similar but matte. On the lips, it has a coral-orange appearance with opaque color coverage, but it definitely comes out more coral on the lips than when applied to the cheeks. Laura Mercier Kissed Lips is pinker. NYX Haute Melon is a smidgen pinker. Guerlain Nahema is darker. NARS Niagara is a touch pinker. Laura Mercier Tangerine is very close. MAC Crosswires is also quite similar!

MAC Lazy Sunday Lip & Cheek Colour

MAC Lazy Sunday Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour ($20.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is described as a “baby pink.” It looks warmer in the pot, but it ended up looking rather pale, light, and just barely cool-toned. As a blush, this will brighten cheeks, but I think it will look best on lighter complexions–it looks too pale on my skin tone. MAC So Swee,t So Easy is very similar. MAC Full of Joy is more lilac. Make Up For Ever #13 is slightly bluer in undertone. As a lip color, it’s a pale, barely cool-toned pink with a subtle sheen. It does settle into lip lines a bit in a noticeable way, which is due to the overall light color. MAC Enchantee is a bit pinker. Guerlain Rose Innocent is sheerer. MAC Dress It Up is pinker. MAC Royal Azalea is just barely pinker. It’s paler than MAC Viva Glam Gaga.

MAC Keep It Loose Lip & Cheek Colour

MAC Keep It Loose Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour ($20.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm peach.” It’s a soft warm-toned peach with a soft sheen. It seems to have a little pink in it. As a blush, it shows up without washing out my medium-colored complexion, which was nice. On lips, it takes on a pinker appearance–looks like a pale pink with subtle warm undertones. Make Up For Ever #14 is similar but has more peach in it. MAC Alpha Girl is similar but lighter. MAC You’re Perfect Already is a little pinker on lips. MAC Miami Coral is a bit darker, more coral. Chanel Flirt is pinker and more coral. MAC Ever Hip is more coral.

MAC Keep It Casual Lip & Cheek Colour

MAC Keep It Casual Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour ($20.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm wine.” It’s a muted red that turns a little raspberry red-like when it’s blended out. It looks a little like MAC Mocha when applied sheer on cheeks. MAC Mighty Aphrodite is pinker. Smashbox Blushing/Peony is similar. On lips, it’s a raspberry red with a muted quality, and it’s opaque with little product needed. NARS Flamenco is redder. NARS Afghan Red is darker. Guerlain Rose Bengale is a smidgen lighter and has shimmer. Guerlain Guet-Apens is more berry-hued. MAC Positively Dashing is more berry, less pink. MAC Deliciously Forbidden has less red.

MAC & Beth Ditto Powder to the People Powder

MAC Powder to the People Powder ($38.00 for 0.35 oz.) is an odd product. At first, it seemed like a cheek product. It’s listed under Face > Powder on the brand’s website, but the description is, “Play with polka dots to create highlighting effects on your eyes by blending the colours of this ultra-fine, lightweight pressed powder with a velvet-smooth finish.” With all that said, it appears to be an eyeshadow “palette” so-to-speak, but I’m baffled as to why they put it under the powder category instead of under eyes/shadow, if that’s what this intended to be used for. Nevertheless, I tried it as an eyeshadow and swirled together as a cheek color.
