MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: My Oranges, Yellows, Golds — Limited Edition

MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: My Oranges, Yellows, Golds — Limited Edition

It’s Sunday, so why not have some fun and play guess-the-MAC-eyeshadows?  But in a way more epic way, since MAC has put out a bajillion limited edition shades.  Hey, I can’t even name all of these without cheating, and I’ve owned them for years…

Some clues…

  • All shades are limited edition (I have all permanent shades in separate palettes)
  • 95% of my limited edition eyeshadows are from 2004-2010, with an emphasis on 2009-2010
  • There may be duplicates of some limited edition shades
  • Square-shaped shades are from holiday palettes

What’s inside the palette… Continue reading “MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: My Oranges, Yellows, Golds — Limited Edition”

MAC Pret-a-Papier Collection: Lipsticks

MAC Pret a Papier Collection

None of the lipsticks blew me away — they don’t quite seem to make it there. Taken as a whole, they’re almost too similar to each other. I think looking at the collection overall, it feels like there are no punches of color or vibrancy. For a summer collection, it definitely feels like something we’d see in the fall. I had trouble with the consistency of Archetype and Dressmaker, Dressmaker to apply evenly and smoothly on lips, but Kraft was true to its amplified finish. Made to Order is a very soft, glossy lustre that applies evenly, so I did like that one.

MAC Pret-a-Papier Collection: Lipglasses

MAC Pret a Papier Collection

Three lipglasses released with this collection, but being the coral fiend I am, Fold and Tuck was the one that I liked the most. It was a lovely shade of coral that was there but not bright with good color. I love the concept of Pret-a-Papier, but it would definitely look better over a lipstick.

MAC Pret-a-Papier Collection: Chromagraphic Pencils & Paint Pots

MAC Pret a Papier Collection

I am both a little surprised–but very delighted–to say that the Chromagraphic Pencils work wonderfully on the waterline. They look lovely–very fresh and awake–without being too light. I used NC/NW15 on my waterline as soon as I had finished photographing them (nobody likes to see used stuff photograph, yeah?), and here I am three hours later with it still hanging on.  I’d definitely say to grab one when you’re able to if you’ve always wanted an easy way to open up and brighten your eyes.

MAC Pret-a-Papier Collection: Eyeshadows

MAC Pret a Papier Collection

It’s funny, despite five eyeshadows being launched in this collection, none of them really spoke to me. I also got more of a fall collection vibe off of them, even though we’re heading right into summer. To be honest, I don’t think any of these are really must-haves.

Gazette Gray had a lot of potential, but it’s just so sheer–would have been great if it had been a veluxe pearl finish! Cut to Fit is something that’s close enough to other shades I’ve seen before. Tissue Weight is pretty on its own, but you may already own something similar.
