MAC Brownluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Brownluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “egg shell, frosty orange gold, light yellow chocolate, deep bronze, blackened plum with pearl.” Brownluxe is one of the better-performing palettes from the launch of six. The textures of #1 and #2 are slightly dry, so you may need to jab at the pans a bit to dislodge color. There is some fall out from #3 and #4 (this was the worst offender of the two), but overall, this had minimal fall out after 12 hours of wear (I don’t normally test this long, but I only had time to test one palette per eye yesterday, so I ended up wearing it until bed time!). I didn’t experience any creasing, but there was some noticeable fading after nine hours of wear.

MAC Barbados Girl Lustre Drops Review, Photos, & Swatches

MAC Barbados Girl Lustre Drops ($20.00 for 0.60 fl. oz.) is described as a “rose gold bronzer.” It is a warm-toned, coppery bronze with a frosted shimmer-sheen. Blended out, it will add a coppery warmth to the skin along with flecks of golden copper shimmer and sparkle. Illamasqua Supernatural is slightly warmer/darker but still similar–it is a cream formula, so it is also more similar than a powder product would be. MAC Sun Rush is lighter, more golden, less coppery. See comparison swatches.

MAC RiRi Boy Lipstick Review, Photos, & Swatches

MAC RiRi Boy Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “matte vivid lavender” with a “Retro Matte” finish. It is a medium-dark, pink-purple with a matte finish. MAC Heroine is darker, purpler. MAC Seasoned Plum is darker, less pink. MAC Up the Amp is glossier, so it appears a bit lighter, less intense when the two are swatched side-by-side, but applied, I couldn’t tell the difference aside from the finish. See comparison swatches.
