MAC x The Simpsons Lipglasses

There are four new, limited edition shades of MAC Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) featured in the upcoming collaboration with The Simpsons, which releases online on August 28th and in-stores on September 4th.  I think seeing these made me long for lipsticks, too, as MAC often does lipgloss and lipstick pairing.  Over the years, it’s often their limited edition lipstick shades that sell out the quickest, and I kept thinking, “What would they have created to pair with yellow lipgloss?”

Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Eye Pencil

Recently, there have been five new shades of Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Eye Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) released. The Velvet formula is “more powdery” than the regular formula, which is supposed to make it easier to blend and smudge out the eyeliner, if desired, for a smoky eye. Otherwise, it’s supposed to have all the long-wearing benefits of the original formula. The consistency definitely has that drier, more powdery feel that the brand talks about, and as a result, it doesn’t apply as evenly as the original pencils do. It just doesn’t glide-on as effortlessly. I find these apply best in short, small strokes and apply better as they warm up against the skin. Due to their dryness, getting really crisp, defined lines seems to be harder, so a smudging brush or tool helps to soften that edge so it looks better and more even. They wear fairly well on me, lasting at least eight hours, and either fade lightly or show some signs of smudging.

NARS Night Series Eyeliners

NARS Night Series Eyeliner ($24.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a new set of eyeliners available in four shades debuting this fall. They are being added to the permanent range, and they are black-based with colored pearl. The consistency of these was stiff, so they did tug somewhat at the lash line and didn’t apply with rich, opaque color coverage. They required three to four passes if you wanted a really solid line, though I found short, back-and-forth strokes to be the best application method for these due to the stiffer consistency. All four wore up to ten hours on me before I saw some very slight fading and a little migration to the outer corner of the lid, but they were quite long-wearing once they were on. At the price, I’d recommend checking out NARS Eye Paints, as it is a better formula with far more product (and $1 more), and three shades are similar to three of the pencils here.

MAC Moody Blooms Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tints

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is supposed to be a formula that uses “PH pigments that work with body’s natural temperature to give you a fresh color that yours alone.” The formula is described as “lightweight,” “moisturizing,” and “lipgloss with a tint.” They are click-type glosses, so you twist and gloss is dispensed over a brush-type applicator. I struggled with these quite a bit last year when they initially released (these have all been out before). I feel like the formula has changed, as these seemed to stain/darken a lot less. I waited about forty minutes before taking photos for each gloss but they really didn’t change color once applied. They just seemed lighter overall.

There are six shades of MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) in the upcoming Moody Blooms collection. The formula has a light-medium weight to it, is quite slippery with some hydration. Some shades are more pigmented than others, and the coverage can be very smooth and glossy or more splotchy with darker shades.
