MAC Hang Up the Glamour Hanging Travel Bag Review & Photos

MAC Hanging Travel Bag ($40.00) is–apparently–sold out online, so you’ll have to trek to your local freestanding MAC store (or Pro store) if you you’re tantalized by this holiday item.  It’s a roll-up, leopard-print vinyl hanging travel bag with multiple zippered compartments for you to store your treasures in.  I was able to fit three-fourths of the Glamour Daze collection along with the three eyeshadow palettes from Fabulousness into it before rolling it up (it no longer folds if you fill it with stuff).

Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura Eyelash Curler Review & Photos

Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura Eyelash Curler ($24.00) is shu’s famous eyelash curler with a vibrant red curling pad and mon shu charm attached to the handle. The charm is completely removable, and I’d recommend doing so–but shu said as much saying to “take this lovelyc harm along in your favorite bag.” If the red curling pad and the charm don’t do it for you, the original curler is $4 less. Either way, I’m a huge fan of shu uemura’s curler, and I have been for years! I’ve given it an award for being the best for the past three years.

MAC Full Lash Curler Review & Photos

MAC Full Lash Curler ($20.00) is easy-to-use, doesn’t pinch, and yields a soft, natural curl that stays. I’ve been using this for the past few weeks when I’ve gone to curl my lashes, and I think it’s very comparable to shu uemura’s curler in shape, feel, and use. If you have smaller eyes, you might consider MAC’s Half Lash Curler. This particular version of the curler is all black, because it is/was part of the Carine Roitfeld collection. I think the all-black coloring makes it look rather sleek (and reminiscent of Chanel’s). It came with one additional curling pad.

Disney Cinderella Compact Mirror by Sephora Review & Photos

Disney Cinderella Compact by Sephora ($20.00) is a limited edition mirrored compact with a mirror on both sides of the interior (one magnifies). It’s nicely done, period, but it’s particularly well-done for a collaboration. It’s not a gimmicky piece–the design itself is intricate and appropriate. I felt it was inspired by Cinderella in a classy, sophisticated way. It did not feel like a compact my five-year-old self would love but a compact that would suit a spectrum of ages.

MAC 215 Medium Shader Brush Review & Photos

MAC 215 Medium Shader Brush ($25.00) is a new, limited edition (I believe, at least) brush designed to be used for shaping and defining the eye with both powder and cream eyeshadows. It has natural bristles. This brush is like a bigger 214, or a stumpy version of the 227. The 215 is wide, dome-shaped brush that’s packed with bristles. For me, it felt a little rough on the eye. It was less rough when I used powder eyeshadows than when I used cream eyeshadows, which seemed to emphasize the pointy, blunt edges of the bristles.
