Video Review: MAC for Gareth Pugh Collection First Impression & Swatches

Still waiting for those freakin’ eyeshadows! Last time I called my local store, they were speculating that customs was holding it up, but I have no idea what’s going on. Nonetheless, here are all the other products minus the beauty powder, which I’ll be reviewing soon!

Did you snag anything from this launch? I’d love to know!

    Are you going to review the make up bag as well? Looking forward to your thoughts.

    • No, sorry! All of this was purchased out of pocket, and I don’t think there’s enough value to merit $75 on a bag to review. It’s not like I can test it for a year and let you know if it’s durable – I can only show you photos of it, and promo photos are much more accurate of a bag than of a lipstick, blush, etc :)

    Such a disappointment. I love contemporary geometric designs. It’s a shame that the product turns out to be mediocre. Sigh.

    I got Hyper nail polish based on your swatches. It looks like a pretty, unique hue.

    I pre-ordered a couple of weeks ago and should get my package this week. I snagged one eye shadow, Ardent which I was told is not yet in, both pigments, lipglass in Vacant, the Kabuki brush, the nail lacquer in Hyper & the beauty powder.

    • I haven’t found the eyeshadows in stores yet! :( Boo!

        Everything that I ordered came today, Nov 28 except the eye shadow. I was told it will ship Dec 5.

        BTW LOVE my goods. The beauty powder compact weighs a ton and the square handled kabuki brush is awesome! I ‘m eager to try everything out.

    The shadows should be shipping to stores the 1st week of December.

    MAC has only raised lipstick prices once by $.50 in the last 6 years. Shadows have gone up several times, but the lipstick prices have stayed fairly constant.

    I ordered fervent(l/s) and outrage(l/g) from the site (just used the TXT code for free shipping) because I was worried I wouldn’t be able to get to my MAC store on time. When I got to the MAC store and saw the stuff in person, I ended up buying Ascension(nail), and Strada(blush).

    I wasn’t planning on getting either one of these, but the Ascension color seemed so beautiful and completely unique to me. Strada is useless to me as a blush (I’m super pale), but I’ve been using it as an eyeshadow in my crease, and I plan on using it for contouring.

    I’m glad I got the nail color and the blush because the packaging for these is really nice, v.substantial, feels expensive. I was a little disappointed with the packaging of the l/s and l/g.

  9. Hi!
    I saw the polish up close and was impressed by the colour of the Ascension, but they had completely sold out of that shade. What shade is the wet n wild polish you said is similar? Thanks! x
