MAC Punk Couture Cremesheen Glasses

In Punk Couture, there are three shades of MAC Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) that will be available. The collection released to most online retailers over the past two days, but we’re all still waiting with baited breath for maccosmetics.com to launch it. The collection will be available in-stores tomorrow, the 26th. So, first things first, if you remember the Style Black collection from 2009, these should look familiar. While called “Glimmerglass” with names like Blackware, Bling Black, and Black Fire… these are the same. They have different names and are technically a different formula, the colors are the same. When I compared them side-by-side, Glimmerglass came with a brust-type applicator instead of a doe-foot, but I didn’t notice any differences between the formulas or the colors. In the tube, swatched, etc. they’re exactly the same. Repromotes are one thing, but when brands release things under the guise that they’re new, it drives me batty. The Cremesheen Glass formula has a medium-weight consistency, is creamy, non-sticky, smells of vanilla, and tends to be shorter-wearing. All three of these wore for less than two hours each on me, which is particularly short in duration for my experience with lipgloss in general.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Tonite Lights Glitter Dust

Marc Jacobs Tonite Lights Glitter Dust ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new and limited edition holiday product from the brand that’s supposed to give “lustrous, long-wearing metallic” eye color with a “weightless sparkle finish.” First and foremost, if you don’t love sparkle and all things glittery, these aren’t for you. Now, if you love sparkle and glitz, you may still like these, but they don’t escape the biggest problem with heavily glittered products: fall out.  There’s a moderate amount of fall out; not the worst, but it’s not just a few stray sparkles–my husband and sister both commented on the “disco” happening underneath my eyes.

Zoya Belinda, Cassedy, Seraphina Nail Lacquers

Zoya Belinda Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “full-coverage, cosmic purple metallic.” It’s a rich, dark, royal purple with cool undertones and violet and plum shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but the consistency was a little thin, and it seemed to show some streaking. Zoya Suri (P, $8.00) was the only similar shade I could think of, but it is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Bronze Ligne Graphique de Chanel & Bronze Platine Mascara Gel Irise

Chanel Bronze Ligne Graphique de Chanel ($34.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “bronze khaki.” It’s a dark, gold-shimmered bronze with olive undertones and a pearly sheen. The brush doesn’t apply opaque product in a single stroke; it really has to be layered, but it dries fairly quickly and doesn’t apply perfectly smooth, so building in layers tends to result in an uneven texture. The color is striking, but the application leaves something to be desired. Once applied, it doesn’t budge, smudge, or fade–I wore it for a total of twelve hours–and didn’t seem to streak or run when my eyes watered (and later, when I dabbed water on it to test its water-resistant claim). The wear was good, but the color payoff and application were where it needed improvement. Buxom Come Over (P, $17.00) is less warm-toned. Urban Decay Smog (P, $19.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Roach (P, $19.00) is redder-toned. Urban Decay Hustle (LE, $19.00) is more muted. Illamasqua Wisdom (P, $27.50) is darker. See comparison swatches.
