MAC Fabulous Felines: Video Review

As promised, here is my video review for the new MAC collection.  I tried to get through it as quickly as possible, and yet it still ended up being 32 minutes long.  Whew!  Grab lunch, coffee, carrot sticks… and maybe a merit badge if you actually watch the whole thing :)

  1. I did it! :) I like these video reviews. I like the still photos on the blog more, but I really like the additional video reviews like this. Good job! LOTS of work but great job! Thanks! :)

    I watched it all! Woo! I find the video review easier to digest for big collections which are a bit overwhelming otherwise!

    Notoriety reminds me of Gazette Grey from the Pret-a-Papier collection. Gorgeous greyish taupey brown with gold glitter in the pan- horrible color pay off.

  6. Lina

    You are AMAZING Christine! I don’t know how you do all of this! You are my “go to” girl for reviews, swatches, and info for beauty goods.

    Just curious, but are you a lefty?

    I was watching this, thinking “Why does the way she opens twist tubes seem unfamiliar?”, then I realized you twist with your left hand/hand holding the tube of product, and I had to ask.

    I have to say, I’m fairly disappointed with this collection. :(

    By the way, thank you so much for providing these swatches. It definitely makes my purchase decisions easier!

    As always, this review is fantastic! You’re very thorough and specific, which I really appreciate. Regarding depotting the new quads, I did two last night, and it was pretty simple. I opened the palette, and covered a shadow with a towel, then pressed a hair straightener over it for about a minute, until the plastic was mouldable. I then pulled the plastic back, away from from the metal pan, with a pairing knife, and slipped the pan out with the knife. The shadows came out perfectly, but the edges of the palette were a bit warped. They don’t look too bad though, so I think that it should still be ok for Back to MAC.

    Your youtube videos are the best by far in my opinion. You have detailed reviews on everything and you can actually see the real colours. After your reviews and swatches i know now what i am going to buy from this collection. Thanx a million! you put so much time and effort :)

    This is such an awesome video, maybe because I LOVE this collection. It’s the perfect fall collection. The pigments, liners and shadows are just gorgeous. I wish they were actual eyeshadow singles instead of quads, but oh well. I really am going to pass on VV, doesn’t even compare to the colors in this collection.

    Very useful video – will stop me from making some expensive mistakes!!

    This review is so great, Christine! I made time to go in and play around with all 3 lines but I always enjoy YOUR insight and comparisons so much! Thank you!!! (Wearing my brownie patch!) You rock….

    I was wondering what you would recommend for me. I’m looking for a good longlasting eyeliner. And I’m not sure if I would go for on the hunt, the superslick eyeliner, or go for blacktrack fluidline.
    Could you help me out?
