MAC Rose Ole Special Reserve Highlighting Powder

MAC Rose Ole Special Reserve Highlighter Powder ($28.00 for oz.) is one of two new and limited edition highlighting powders included in the Cham-Pale launch (the other being Chez Chez Lame). MAC describes it as a “soft pink with gold shimmer.”  It is a rosy copper beige with a soft golden sheen.  I was reminded of Pink Bronze pigment, actually, but obviously the finish and texture are quite different!  This shade is darker and thus more pigmented, so it is more appropriate for darker skin tones–it is still subtle and easily sheer enough to work on even pale skin tones, though.  After some more reflection, this is a softer version of MAC’s By Candlelight Mineralize Skinfinish.

MAC Chez Chez Lame Special Reserve Highlighting Powder

MAC Chez Chez Lame Special Reserve Highlighter Powder ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.) is one of two new and limited edition highlighting powders included in the Cham-Pale launch (the other being Rose Ole). MAC describes it as a “soft gold with silver shimmer.”  It’s a softened white gold with subtle yellow undertones and a soft white shimmer-sheen.  I don’t see so much of a silver shimmer as I do a soft white one, though.

MAC I Get No Kick Eye Kohl

MAC I Get No Kick Eye Kohl ($14.50 for 0.048 oz.) is described as a “metallic nude,” and it is a new and limited edition eyeliner from Cham-Pale.  MAC’s description is dead-on–it is a soft champagne nude with a metallic sheen.  It works really well on the lower lash line to wake up tired eyes by adding some light and reflective sheen.  Smooth and pigmented as MAC’s Eye Kohls, it also wears well (going on eight hours at the time of writing this review) without smudging or migrating.
