MAC Cool Thrillseekers Pigments/Glitter Set

MAC Cool Thrillseekers Pigments/Glitter Set

Each pigment/glitter set includes four pigments and one glitter, each contains 0.09 oz. of product, according to the tin. The five glass vials are housed inside a tartan-decorated metal tin, and there is a plastic insert that keeps them standing together, but it’s removable, should you desire. I did find it curious that there were no inserts regarding uses (e.g. what’s eye/lip safe) in any of the sets, though.

This set includes: Cheers My Dear (pale violet), Mauvement (cool taupe with gold pearl), Silver Fog (platinum silver), Softwash Grey (grey with purple pearl), and Reflects Pearl (very fine particle white glitter with a pearl sheen).

I think the pigment sets are a good value, and they’re always worth a peek if you’re into loose color or pigments. You’re getting 0.45 oz. of product for $32.50, while a single, full-sized pigment contains 0.15 oz. of product and retails for $19.50–essentially, this is $60 worth of pigments/glitters.

MAC Sir Teddy for Kids Helping Kids Photos

MAC Sir Teddy

For the holidays, a limited edition Sir Teddy is available in his big boy form and a smaller, keychain size. The larger size is 6″ by 4″ ($15.00), while the smaller version is 3.5″ by 2.5″ ($12.00) and has a keychain clip attached. The larger Sir Teddy’s arms and legs are movable.   The toy is actually made in connection with Gund.

The proceeds from the sale of the teddy bears go towards MAC’s Kids Helping Kids program, which focuses on supporting children affected by HIV/AIDS.  I’m a big supporter of MAC’s Viva Glam program because of the amount of money donated to the cause–it’s not a measly 10%–they make it count.

There really is nothing to review here! They’re cute little bears, and they do make good gifts that don’t break the bank. I like the idea of giving these to any kids you’re gifting this holiday season, but I bought one of each size for myself! 🙂  They also have Kids Helping Kids Holiday Cards ($8.00) and Gift Tags ($8.00) available.

Hourglass Dune Eyeshadow Duo

Hourglass Dune Eyeshadow Duo

Dune has a shimmering gilded beige champagne with a metallic sheen accompanied by a darker, deeper, smoldering brown with flecks of green and copper shimmer.  Each eyeshadow was rich in pigmentation, applied flawlessly on the lid, and it was easy to blend them together.

Even though the price tag makes me cringe, keep in mind that you’re getting 0.20 oz. worth of product–MAC and Urban Decay eyeshadows are only 0.05 oz. ($14.50 and $17.00, respectively), while NARS Single Eyeshadows contain 0.07 oz. ($23.00).

RECOMMENDATION: If you’re in the market for an easy to use, high quality neutral eyeshadow duo, consider Dune.  At the very least, check out the Hourglass display next time you’re at Sephora.
