MAC Illustrated Smoldering Eye Bag ($46.50) includes three full-sized products: a Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo, Eye Kohl, and False Lashes Mascara. The duo is worth $21, pencil is worth $16, and mascara is worth $20, so the total value of the set is $57, plus a full-sized makeup bag. The bag is actually the same size as the Illustrated bags that were released alone, and those retailed at $36, so the maximum possible value would be $93. The bag seemed to be made out of the same material as the Illustrated standalone bags. Keep in mind, This or That came out in 2011, and the eyeliner and mascara are both part of the permanent range.

This and That #1 is a warm, creamy white with a satin finish. It had good color payoff applied dry, and it had great color payoff applied damp. MAC Chill is cooler-toned, matte. MAC Mylar is yellower. See comparison swatches.

This and That #2 is a warm, pale golden peach with a frosted, metallic finish. It had so-so color payoff applie dry, and when applied damp, the pigmentation remained the same but the texture was smoother. Disney Splendid is similar. Buxom Collie is a cream and more golden. See comparison swatches.

Smolder is a rich black with a matte finish. It had good color payoff, and the consistency was lightly creamy and glided across the skin well. This is part of the permanent range. I’ve reviewed this in the past, and it has numerous dupes since it is a black eyeliner and many brands make them (see black eyeliner comparisons)./
