Pigments: Partylicious, If it Sparkles…, Later.
MAC Alice + Olivia Collection: Pigments
Pigment fiends–I don’t know if I’d pass on these new shades from Alice + Olivia. They have excellent textures, and both Partylicious and Later are beautiful. If It Sparkles would be the only one I’d think about skipping, since it’s less unique.

- Later. needs moisture to look amazing. Do not just swatch it dry and forget about it, because you’re really not giving it a chance then. When applied wet, it’s a blackened-gray base with flashes of violet and deep blue-purple shimmer and sheen. About a million times prettier wet than dry.
- If It Sparkles… is an iridescent icy pink with a frosty finish. It reminded me of a smoother–but frostier–version of Pink Opal, actually.
- Partylicious is an aqua-teal with flashes of pearly green and green-teal. This is ridiculously lovely. If you’re even remotely a fan of aqua/teal, this is a total must-have. Like don’t let this one pass you by! It almost feels like a duochrome. At first, I thought it was similar to Parrot–except it’s greener, lighter, and tealer. It’s not nearly as blue as Parrot. It is GORGEOUS!
