Video Review: MAC & Marcel Wanders 2 Collection – First Impressions & Swatches

It was so very strange to see MAC partner with Marcel Wanders again, and it felt like it had (or has) very little fanfare associated with it!   The video features my first impressions of the products as well as swatches.  You can find reviews on the lipglosses and lipsticks posted in full on the blog already 🙂

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as it’s named: “copper.” It’s a muted copper with a gold sheen. The only shade I could think of that was similar was tokidoki Unicorno, which is more like an orange-gold. theBalm Mischievous Marissa is a bit like it, but it is an eyeshadow.  It delivers mostly opaque color coverage in a single pass, which is always a noteworthy feat for an eyeliner.  There’s a metallic sheen, but it’s not too reflective.

Giorgio Armani describes the formula as waterproof/water-resistant (they use both terms, even though they mean different things), soft, creamy, and intense.  The first thing you notice when you use it is how utterly soft and malleable the pencil tip is.  It’s so, so soft that it glides across the lash line with ease–no tugging or skipping.  Despite the creaminess of the formula, it doesn’t smudge throughout the day.  This shade wore better than #4 for me, actually, because it looked 95% as good after eight hours as it did when I first applied it.  I splashed my eye with water and lightly pressed, and I didn’t find that the eyeliner was disturbed, so it should make it through intact if your eyes water a bit.

Beautiful Beginnings with Burberry

Beautiful Beginnings with Burberry

What was the first Burberry product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Burberry product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Burberry Beauty only debuted a little while ago, which makes it easier on my memory 🙂  The very first product I reviewed was Trench eyeshadow, which is my go-to brow highlighter.  It’s mostly matte, but it just matches my skin tone perfectly.  It’s soft, silky, and incredibly blendable.  The next two products I tried were both blushes, which are soft and lovely if you prefer a softer, more matte finish to your cheek color.  I remember being pleasantly surprised by the roll out of the beauty arm of the brand–they didn’t phone it in, and it was well-done.  Everything fit the brand to a T.
