This was the second look I tried to test drive MAC’s new long-wearing eyeshadows! I don’t know if I’ve paired green (without being brownish or olive) with browns – it’s a very earthy combo! Hope you’re having a fabulous day!
For eyes, start by laying down your eyeshadow primer all over the lid and until the brow. Apply Fresh Flare eyeshadow on the lower two-thirds of the lid with the 239. In the crease, gently brush Keep Your Cool eyeshadow with the 222 and diffuse above the crease. Apply Lie Low eyeshadow in the crease to add warmth with the 239. Use Lucky eyeliner on the lower lash lin, then soften with Lie Low eyeshadow. Finish lashes with Film Noir mascara.
For face, apply Matchmaster all over face with the 193. Add color to the cheeks by gently dusting Natural blush near apples and blended out towards temples with the 116. Lightly dust on illuminator with the 165 or 188 on cheek bones. Set with Les Violettes with the 134.
For lips, apply To the Future onto lips and then layer over Show Me.
MAC Pro Longwear Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to wear for eight hours with a “silky, creamy texture” that yields “maximum color impact.” It’s also designed to be blendable and buildable. As a reviewer, I am endlessly pleased that MAC gave definite wear times on these–it’s so much easier to assess whether the product was successful!
There a whopping sixteen shades released in MAC Styledriven, and because of the amount of photos, I’ve split them over three parts. This second part includes: Lie Low (dark frosted golden brown), Make Your Mark (dark chocolate), One to Watch (light warm brown), Pink Frontier (soft golden pink), and Plush (vivid purple).
Lie Low is a warm-toned, medium-dark brown with orange undertones. This has a frost finish, but it reads more satiny than frosty. It has good color payoff and the texture is soft without being powdery. Bare Escentuals Truth is a touch darker. MAC Texture is very similar, perhaps a little warmer.
Pink Frontier is a soft, warmed-over pink. This has a frost finish, but it’s a bit on the sheer side. The finish is one of the more metallic ones of the bunch. It is similar to Urban Decay Scratch. It is pinker than theBalm Luscious Lani. It’s a slightly pinker version of MAC Nubile is powder form. It is similar to MAC Hush.
Plush is a grape purple with subtle red undertones. This has a satin finish with decent color payoff but it could stand to be a little more intense (so it would be more in line with how it appears in the pan). It’s not as red as MAC Half-Wild but redder than Make Up For Ever #142. It’s not as intense or as deep as MAC Grape.
Please see part one for a full review of the formula!
It's a good eyeshadow overall, with some shades being really great and others being good, but there aren't any major duds here. The color payoffs are good across the board with a workable texture that's blendable.
