OVERALL, Colour Forms offers a nice range of new products and takes on old products, aside from the traditional Nordstrom exclusive of eyeshadow and lip palettes and brush sets. The packaging for the Colour Forms Collection is a glossy black, rather than MAC’s usual matte black, and there is a metallic red sticker that says “MAC Cosmetics.” Yes, it is a sticker, but it seemed much better adhered than the Fafi episode. It almost looks like metal, so they did a much better job with these stickers. The packaging for the palettes and brush sets is a mixture of brightly colored satin-y compacts that flip open and close by magnets. It’s fun packaging, which I think works well with the summer months. It doesn’t feel cheap or flimsy, either, which is something that is always a concern when it comes to mass-produced palettes. I didn’t take a super close look at the brush sets – the packaging is just like the eye and lip palettes, and it seems like there’s a brush case and a brush bag, but I’m not 100% on that.
Stopped by Nordstrom’s tonight to get you lovelies Colour Forms swatches! I believe they just brought testers out today (that’s what my Nordstrom’s said; and they were still bagged up) so that you can play with them and do pre-sales. I’ll do a review later (possibly later tonight, maybe tomorrow morning) of what I saw, as well! But for now, enjoy these swatches!
