MAC Ice Parade Silver Iced Delights Eye Bag

MAC Silver Iced Delights Eye Bag ($45.00) includes Silverwear (metallic lilac), Blue Spruce (celadon with violet sparkles), Graphblack (black), along with a full-sized Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara and 275SE brush. There are three different Eye Bags and all three contain both the mascara and special edition brush, but the eyeshadow duo and eyeliner vary. MAC Ice Parade launches on October 27th, 2011 in-stores.

  • Silverwear is an icy lilac with a frost finish. The color payoff is so-so, as it’s sheer but not invisible. Make Up For Ever #151 is similar, though a touch pinker. This is a repromote.
  • Blue Spruce is a dark navy blue with a tealish-green edge and copper sparkle. It has a velvet finish. I thought this looked very unique from the moment I swatched it, and thankfully, it also had good pigmentation. I couldn’t think of a dupe.
  • Graphblack is a medium-dark black. It is part of the permanent range.

I’m not keen on the color payoff of Silverwear, especially as a frost finish, it shouldn’t be as sheer as it is. I do, however, appreciate and like the originality of Blue Spruce. Trade-offs! Graphblack is a long-time favorite, and I used to use it as my go-to black eyeliner for a couple of years.

MAC Ice Parade Gold Iced Delights Eye Bag

MAC Gold Iced Delights Eye Bag ($45.00) includes Baby, It’s Cold… (butter yellow), Woodsmoke (muted emerald green), Brown Border (brown), along with a full-sized Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara and 275SE brush. There are three different Eye Bags and all three contain both the mascara and special edition brush, but the eyeshadow duo and eyeliner vary. MAC Ice Parade launches on October 27th, 2011 in-stores.

  • Baby, It’s Cold… is a shimmered yellowy beige with great color payoff and a smooth, rich texture. It has a frost finish but feels more like a veluxe pearl. One of the better eyeshadows from the entire MAC holiday launch. It’s like MAC Butternutty in powder form.
  • Woodsmoke is a dark forest green with a red-toned brown base. It has a frost finish, and it had nice color payoff and was fairly smooth to the touch. It is green-tinged, so it’s not quite like Blue Brown pigment, but it’s not as green as Green Brown pigment. OCC Poison is greener and the brown base isn’t as apparent.
  • Brown Border is a warm-toned medium-dark brown. It’s part of the permanent range.

I liked this kit the best out of the three Eye Bags; the quality was there in all three products. The texture of the eyeshadows is soft and smooth, while the pigmentation is good to great. As a bonus, the duo and eyeliner definitely complement each other.

Guerlain Noir G de Guerlain Mascara Launches


Guerlain Noir G de Guerlain Mascara

As reported by WWD, Guerlain will debut its newest mascara–Noir G de Guerlain–in January 2012. If you’re familiar with the Rouge G de Guerlain Lipsticks, the packaging will seem familiar. The “tubes” are made of Zamac with black lacquer. WWD mentions that both products’ packaging has mirrors and is refillable (could it be? Rouge Gs will be refillable in 2012?).

The Noir G formula is designed to lengthen and curl lashes, provide lash regeneration with artemia salina, and stimulate the production of keratin. It is also scented with peach, rose, jasmine, and white musk. Noir G will retail for $49.00 ($26.00 for refills), and it will launch initially at Saks Fifth Avenue on December 26th and roll out to other locations in January.
