Fashion Patch Mineralize Eyeshadow

MAC Cosmetics Colour Craft Collection Review – Part 1

OVERALL, the mineralize eyeshadow quads seem to have smoother, softer textures with more pigmented shades compared to previous mineralize eyeshdaow releases. Every year, mineralize collections sucker me in, even though I’ve never been a huge fan of the product line-up (particularly eyeshadows). This year is no different — lots of shades and combinations to choose from, with many wearable shades. There’s no instant-grab-your-attention-color like Sea & Sky, but the majority of the mineralize eyeshadows seem perfect for summer-wear.

The lipglasses were far more pigmented than spring’s Sugarsweet lipglasses were, though they’re not ultra opaque glosses either–just in case you thought they were. They’re semi-sheer glosses with some running sheerer and others feeling more opaque. The texture is similar to Sugarsweet lipglasses, which was semi-thin and not as sticky as traditional lipglass. I will never understand the increased prices on these, as regular lipglass is $14.00 for 0.17 oz. while these are $18.00 for 0.16 oz. The packaging holds fingerprints, it’s sharp, and the marbelized effect is a novelty (it doesn’t feel like it’s very functional). The lipsticks offered a good range of shades, and there are a few shades we haven’t seen before/not often, and that is always a welcome addition!

P.S. – This review is broken up into two parts, just because there is SO much to read and digest. I don’t want to get a bunch of tl;dr comments 😉 The blushes/skinfinishes and brushes are up next!

Project Revamp

If you could revamp MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, what would you change? What would you keep the same? How would you make it an even better product?

HauteLook is having a Hourglass Cosmetics sale!

The sale is going on now at HauteLook! :)  Products are usually around 50% off, sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more.  I’ve only tried a few Hourglass products before, so I might see what I can pick up from the sale.
