MAC Stylishly Yours: Dark Diversion Fluidlines

MAC Fluidlines ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) sees the launch of one new and limited edition shade: Dark Diversion (blackened plum). Blacktrack (flat black) is also be repromoted alongside it.  Fluidlines are gel eyeliners that are best applied with an eyeliner brush (I prefer the 208, because of how thin and precise you can line with it).  They’re creamy and apply opaquely without a lot of product or needing layering.  For me, they last all day long and never budge or smudge.

Please note that I do not own Macroviolet so I can not make a comparison for you.  All I can say is they look similar but Dark Diversion seems browner and a little darker.  Without owning it, I really can’t make a fair assessment of it.

  • Blacktrack is a matte black.  This is a permanent shade.  You can see a review and swatch for it here.
  • Dark Diversion is a darkened burgundy-brown with berry-wine undertones and subtle berry micro-shimmer.  This is a new and limited edition shade.

MAC Stylishly Yours collection is a limited edition launch (official information and photos here) that is set to launch in-stores on December 26th in North America, January 2011 for international MAC locations. The approximate launch date for online is December 24th.

MAC Stylishly Yours: Too Chic Beauty Powder

MAC Too Chic Beauty Powder ($22.00 for 0.35 oz.) is an ultra pale white gold with a subtle white shimmer-sheen. MAC describes this shade as a “soft peachy cream with fine shimmer.”  Just like Play It Proper, this is a very pale shade.  It is a lighter, less yellow version of NARS Albatross.  It is also a paler version of Chez Chez Lame (close enough that you could just pick one of the two, rather than both).

Beauty powders have a very finely milled, silken texture that tends to settle well on the skin without looking powdery.  I did find that the Stylishly Yours beauty powders were frostier than previous beauty powders, so I noticed it more on skin–partially due to my medium skin tone, though.  You get an amazing amount of product for just $22–way better value than the Special Reserve Highlighting Powders, actually ($28 for the same amount).

P.S. — In the full face photo, I’m wearing Too Chic on cheeks, Neon Orange on lips, and on eyes, Chilled on Ice as a base, Retrospeck and Caviar Dreams on top with Dark Diversion to line (upper lash line) and I Get No Kick (lower lash line), and then New Hue on lashes.

  • Value: 10/10

RECOMMENDATION: I still have concerns about this working on medium-dark to dark skin tones without looking ashy.  It will be a lovely highlighter for paler skin tones, though.

MAC Stylishly Yours: Play It Proper Beauty Powder

MAC Play It Proper Beauty Powder ($22.00 for 0.35 oz.) is an ultra, barely-there pink with a subtle white sheen that has neutral undertones. MAC describes this shade as a “pastel soft pink with sparkles.”  Thankfully, this is really not a sparkling powder–it has the soft sheen that beauty powders are known for.  This is a really light/pale one, though, and I think that it’ll work well for lighter skin tones, darker skin tones may find it turns ashy.  It’s a lighter, more neutral version of Benefit’s Dandelion.

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 10/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: For lighter skin tones of both warm and cool natures, this would be a nice highlighter. On medium-dark to dark skin tones, I’d try it before buying, because I suspect it will turn ashy.  Note that the overall rating is very much buffered by the value of the product.
