OVERALL, the packaging is what sets Manish apart from some of the previous launches. The intricate design is plastered over each product, and there are no stickers to deal with–like Fafi. The eyeshadow palette is sturdy, a yellow-gold, and the front cover is decorated in pretty jewels. The colors are all stunning and worth getting if you don’t already have them. The worst part about the launch is it utilized so many permament colors rather than creating limited edition shades. With such a limited release, it almost makes sense to further add exclusivity by having those unique must-have shades. But then again, it sold out within the first day it went up online, so obviously they did something right!
Did you get your hands on Manish? What’d you get? Why’d you pass?

MAC MANISH ARORA is available to purchase online! I purchased a few things so that I could swatch them for you all! Then I’ll probably gift them to family, LOL! *goes back to bed*
I think anybody who was poo-pooing this launch because of all the repromotes/permanent items will at least be tempted to buy these just for the packaging – because it erally does look fun, stylish, and pretty different from past LE packaging. What do you think?
