Prescriptives Photochrome Light-Adjusting Compact Makeup SPF 15 ($35.00)
Look great in any light with the return of Prescriptives Photochrome Light-Adjusting Compact Makeup SPF 15. In these high-definition times, light-reflecting photo-friendly particles diffuse glare while softening the look of lines and wrinkles to help you look your best. Available in 12 shades, this lightweight cream-to-powder foundation glides onto skin for medium coverage that is smooth and natural. The oil-free, longwearing formula provides a seamless finish that never looks heavy. Apply with the patented ergonomic sponge that contours the face for a flawless application and you are ready for the spotlight!
I’ve yet to try this product, but I’m definitely intrigued. I say this because only recently I have had some foundation woes about my foundation *not* matching my face in certain lighting (mostly when I spy myself in the flip-down mirror in my boyfriend’s car!). It is designed to make your skinless flawless in high-def TV (think Cargo blu-ray collection). It is a long-wearing, buildable foundation that keeps skin looking natural in all light. It is also supposed to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores (gimme!). It’s also oil-free, fragrance-free, and non-acnegenic according to Prescriptives.
Availability: January 2009 at all Prescriptives counters nationwide, www.prescriptives.com and Holt Renfrew in Canada.

Thanks to Monica for the question!
OVERALL, Dame Edna’s lipsticks stand out the most for me, because they are ultra-pigmented and extremely creamy in texture. They almost have a matte-look, but because of their sheen, not quite so. The lipglasses are not as pigmented as the lipsticks, but on the other hand, they complement the lipsticks well. The eye trios disappointed me, mostly because I felt that too many of the shadows had a chalky texture, which I just can’t jive with. Another downside to this launch is the fact that MAC has, yet again, used stickers on their packaging. On the eyeshadow trios, the stickers are covered with plastic/something so they shouldn’t come off (at least not easily), but everything else is just a flat sticker. It’s nothing special, and you can certainly peel it off if you desire. The high-light powders, while pretty to look at, are not nearly as special once you get past the shimmer overspray–I felt duped with these; it reminded me of lipsticks that had a gold overspray and then regular lipstick underneath. The collection is definitely worth a look or two, but I wouldn’t say you have to rush out on the 26th–not worth skipping out on your holidays and festivities and family fun yet!
