MAC x Proenza Schouler Nail Lacquers

MAC Bougainvillea Nail Lacquer ($17.50 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright orange coral [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium-dark orange with strong, warm red undertones and a cream finish. It was fully opaque after applying two coats, and I didn’t have any issues with application–no streaking, bubbling, or pooling. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. NARS Libertango (LE, $19.00) is similar. Cult Nails Ay Poppy (DC, $12.00) is lighter. NARS Lal Mirchi (LE, $19.00) is similar. MAC Oriele Orange (LE, $16.00) is slightly redder. Guerlain Nahema (P, $23.00) is redder. China Glaze Life Preserver (LE, $7.50) is also redder, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Round-up: MAC x Proenza Schouler Collection Overview & Thoughts

The MAC x Proenza Schouler Collection will debut online on April 21st and hit stores and counters on April 24th. At this time, I’ve reviewed all of the pieces I received early, but I won’t have reviews for the Blush Ombres or the Nail Lacquers (one shade is Nocturnelle, which is permanent) until I’m able to buy them online myself. I suspect that the Blush Ombres will sell well, given that they typically do and MAC doesn’t release them often–plus both shades are new (and of course, limited edition!), so unfortunately, I might not be able to have anything helpful up before they sell out. The below list is incomplete, given there are still five products yet to be seen or tested, but for now…

MAC 129SE Proenza Schouler Powder/Blush Brush Review & Photos

MAC x Proenza Schouler 129SE Powder/Blush Brush ($38.50) is a short-handled version of the 129 brush, which is typically used for blush, though it can be used with other face and cheek products as well. It’s a medium-sized brush with a flared, domed-shaped brush head. The brush head is 1.25 inches / almost 4 centimeters in length, 1.5 inches / just over 3 centimeters in width, and 3/4 of an inches / 2 centimeters in thickness. It’s moderately dense with some spring/flexibility, but it doesn’t feel floppy or feathery.
