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.

A word on the new products… The lipsticks do, in fact, have a true inner core, which is the same across all of the lipsticks, and it is a sheer, shimmery golden kind of color. I couldn’t tell you how it really changes the lipstick, as it all muddles together during application – I think it may add some golden sheen. The richmetal highlighters do look like CCBs, and to be honest, it’s hard to tell them apart. They do seem creamer than some of the CCBs I’ve tried in the past, so perhaps it’s more like an improved formulation of the CCB? The Colour Form Powders are both very pretty, though I’m biased and prefer Suncentered, which is warmer and has a nice level of shimmer. I think people will enjoy these, though – especially those who liked beauty powders.

MAC Cosmetics | Colour Forms Swatches

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!

See the rest… Continue reading →
