MAC Magic, Mirth, & Mischief Review: Nail Lacquer & Softsparkle Eye Pencil Swatches, Photos

MAC Magic, Mirth, & Mischief Collection

MAC launches two metallic finish lacquers: Lucky Number and $$$ Yes (which is a repromote from Heatherette), as well as two repromoted shades of their Softsparkle Eye Pencils — Nightsky and Iris Accents.

I liked Lucky Number a lot, and if you haven’t played around with the Softsparkles, you may find you like the glitz of them. I like them, but I never find myself reaching for them, despite owning all of them, so they’re not must-haves for me.

MAC Magic, Mirth, & Mischief Review: Lipsticks Swatches & Photos

MAC Magic, Mirth, & Mischief Collection

Four shades of lipsticks debuted with MAC’s holiday color collection, with one being permanent (Pervette). Personally, I was really hoping to see another amazing holiday red from MAC this season, but I wasn’t so lucky. (Note: again, I hope to have lip swatches up tomorrow or over the weekend.)

Even though none of the shades really blew me away, I did really like the idea of a Stark Naked blush-turned-lip color, so Total Wow! is a must on my list.

Edited:  Sorry about the mix-up… when I was in-store, the artist told me Madly Creative and it didn’t occur to me to double-check!  I think I have Pervette in my stash, so I’ll swatch that when I do lip swatches.

MAC Magic, Mirth, & Mischief Review: Cremesheen Glasses Swatches

MAC Magic, Mirth, & Mischief Collection

If you’ve been in the MAC-know for the past year, you probably remember the original launch of the Cremesheen Glasses. The three released with the holiday collection are all repromotes from that launch, so this is your chance to a) stock up if you loved them; b) try them if you passed on them before; or c) save money because you already have/skipped them. I don’t personally love Cremesheen Glasses, as I find them too sheer to bother (they nearly all looked the same on my lips), but I know others love the formula — which is non-sticky, thick, and creamy.

You can view the lip swatches I did originally. These just aren’t my thing, but I also think I’m slightly allergic to these (they make my lips tingle and itch), so there’s even less reason for me to like them. I think Ever So Rich is the only shade that I’d feel compelled to get, but I know that has to do with the way it looks in the tube and not so much on my lips.
