MAC x Antonio Lopez Face/Coral Palette
MAC x Antonio Lopez Face/Coral Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez Face/Coral Palette ($46.00 for 0.45 oz.) contains an iridescent powder (0.12 oz.), blush (0.13 oz.), and beauty powder (0.20 oz.). It’s a limited edition palette that releases on September 12th. I can’t remember the last time a full-sized Iridescent powder came out (to my recollection, which is not infallible, there were some in Fafi, which were $21 a pop and contained 0.28 oz., and blushes were $17.50 then, so my guess is these would be around $24), and then blushes are typically $21.00 for 0.21 oz. and beauty powders are typically $24.00 for 0.35 oz. So the palette contains $9.00 worth of iidescent powder, $13.00 worth of blush, and $13.71 worth of beauty powder–a total value of $35.72. You pay for convenience and variety, but if you only used one or two shades, you might consider finding similar products individually.

Star! is described as a “peachy gold with pink and yellow pearl.” It’s a light golden beige with warm undertones. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which is as expected. It had some gold sparkle, but it seemed to disappear before it was applied. This shade wore well for six and a half hours but was patchy after seven hours. It did emphasize pores slightly.
NARS Nico gives a similar, but more flattering, glow to the skin. MAC Soft & Gentle is more beige, metallic. Chanel Lumiere d’Artifices Beiges is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches.

Passion for Colour is described as a “mid-tone coral [with a Satin finish].” It’s a coral-orange with a subtle sheen. It had fairly good color payoff, and it was easy to blend and apply to the skin. It wore well for seven hours and looked somewhat faded after eight hours. Edward Bess Secret Affair is slightly darker. Tom Ford Love Lust is more shimmery. Aveda Hibiscus is pinker. MAC Ripe for Love is more orange. MAC Supercontinental is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Smooth Harmony is described as a “medium golden bronze.” It’s a medium-dark, orange-brown with a golden sheen. (I don’t remember Smooth Harmony being this orange.) The color payoff was just so-so, and it was somewhat powdery. It wore well for six and a half hours, but it had noticeably faded after seven and a half hours. Physicians Formula Light Bronzer is more orange. MAC Fresh Honey is darker, more orange. MAC Blazing Haute is similar. Dior Pink Glow Bronzer is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

    This reminds me of the Sleek Face Form.

  2. Years ago, when Tartan Tales came out, they had a blush palette that was just like this (clever design, though it was a bit hard to get a brush into just one of the 2 upper pans because of their shape). I got it because it had DAME blush in it and I’d been planning to purchase DAME anyway. But the DAME in that palette was awful – I rarely use it to this day as it’s practically impossible to get any colour onto the brush. I’ve resorted to scraping the surface with a very rough brush or with my fingernail. You would think that the blush would be the same consistency/formula whether in the regular line or in a special LE collection. Seeing this palette brought it all back!

    • Yeah, sometimes they’re the same, other times they are inferior! Much like the eyeshadow palettes.

      I think the lip palettes tend to perform closest to the individual products, but it is harder to tell since most apply using a lip brush vs. from the tube for those two types of products!

      • That’s what’s put me off the lip palettes – the need for a brush so no chance of doing a quick swipe of lippie when you suddenly realize you could do with a touch up but pulling out a lipstick brush and having 2 free hands plus a mirror isn’t possible.

        With permanent products in LE releases, I honestly don’t see why the quality isn’t the same. One would think that a company would really care that Product QRS had consistent quality no matter what packaging or labelling.

  3. Baby A..

    What lipstick are you wearing, Christine?

  4. Baby A..

    Oops, sorry, missed your note there. Got it!

  5. CKG

    Wow, looks so nice.

  6. grlnxdor

    I really like the blush color, but the other shades are too yellow for me. I’ll have to pass.

  7. I definitely like how these look on you. If I had to choose between this one and the one you showed us in your top post, then I’d go for this one. Corals, eh, I can’t resist :-)

  8. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Barbie Barbie

    looks like sleek makeup’s face form kit!

  9. The blush is pretty, but I’ve just ordered Benefit’s Rockateur so I’ll have to pass on this.

  10. I can tell already that these would turn really orange on me.

    On the other hand, I’d like to thank you for turning me onto Mac Sushi Kiss which is perfection. Something I’ve been waiting to find for a long time.

    Limited Edition? I need to stock up, I guess?

  11. I kind of like this palette.. but I’m not sure if it’s worth it.

  12. So beautiful but the colours aren’t special
