Golden Shine

MAC Golden Shine Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($46.00 for 0.07 oz.) contains warm-toned neutrals to the tune of beige, copper, rosy copper, and brown. They can come together and create a nice, cohesive look (assuming one likes a lot of shimmer), but they need to be used with a dampened brush to apply well.

Dream St

Colour Pop Dream St 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral palette with a few pops of color (two teals, two oranges). There was a nice mix of matte and shimmer, light and dark to enable one to create several different looks with the palette. I had trouble with some of the more shimmery shades, which was a surprise as ColourPop tends have a reliable, quality formula on their more metallic shades, but they seemed drier in this palette and most needed to be applied with a dampened brush to perform decently.

Opal Beach

MAC Opal Beach Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, peachy gold with warm, golden pearl. It had medium coverage that didn’t build beyond semi-opaque coverage. The texture was thin, balm-like, and comfortable to wear, though it emphasized every imperfection on my lips and pulled into lip lines immediately and only worsened over time. It lasted for three hours on me (not at all close to the six hours promised!).

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.14 oz. - $178.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have buildable coverage with "long-term hydration" that helps to "blur lip lines" and lasts for "[six] hours."T he formula has MAC’s signature vanilla scent but no discernible taste. The majority of the shades I’ve tested in this formula have semi-opaque to opaque coverage, last three to six hours, are hydrating, and feel comfortable to wear. Some are quite pigmented, while others are truer to the buildable coverage claim. There were some shades that seemed to smooth out my lip lines but a few emphasized them or settled into them noticeably.

Why, Hello

Colour Pop Why, Hello Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The blush had a very powdery, almost clumpy, consistency that felt silky to the touch but dry upon application. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was hard to build up as the powder didn’t adhere to itself well, so I just wasn’t able to get much more than medium coverage out of it. When I blended it out, the color tended to lift and sheer away, but at least it did not look splotchy. It wore well for six hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.21 oz. - $38.10 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to go on "smoothly" and have a "natural and healthy flush" that has "long wear" and "can be layered to your desired intensity." It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one's skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.

MamaStarrr

MAC MamaStarrr Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It was richly pigmented and had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that glided across the lips without tugging and applied even coverage in a single stroke. The lipstick was comfortable to wear, though there was a touch of color that gathered in my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was slightly moisturizing.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.10 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and the pigmentation and wear tend to be dependent on the finish. The sheer finishes, like Lustres, tend to wear for only a couple of hours and have sheer coverage (as designed) and are non-drying. Some of the original Matte shades have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a more velvety, silicone-feel to them, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most Matte shades are quite pigmented and long-wearing, though some are drying. The Amplified and Satin finishes tend to have good pigmentation, lightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a bit of shine, and moderate to long wear with deeper, richer shades wearing longer. The Frost and Metallic finishes have the most variance between shades with coverage ranging from semi-sheer to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Burning Nights

MAC Burning Nights Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($46.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a smoky mix of neutrals and a blackened navy blue. If one tends to like MAC’s Mineralize fomrula, I don’t think this would fall that short of expectations, but in order to get true-to-pan coverage and intensity, they need to be used with a dampened brush or over a lightly tacky primer.
