MAC Stay Cute Nicopanda Full Face Kit ($40.00 for 0.40 oz.) rounds out the collection’s Face Kits as the final disappointment in the trilogy. The eyeshadows were dismal, and the blush was workable but was barely decent.

Primapanda

MAC Primapanda Nicopanda Full Face Kit ($40.00 for 0.40 oz.) makes one wonder if brands even bother to test their own products prior to releasing them to consumers. Every single product in the palette fell below what one would look for in a mid-end product with two shades being absolutely atrocious. Eyeshadow primer did not alleviate the overall application issues and only improved wear by a few hours but by no means long enough to make it through even an eight-hour day.

Preppy Panda

MAC Preppy Panda Nicopanda Full Face Kit ($40.00 for 0.40 oz.) is just another example of MAC’s emphasis on packaging without putting much effort into ensuring the quality of the actual product inside that “cool” packaging of theirs. It performed poorly on its own, and it wasn’t salvaged by primer. One shade was a complete miss–one of the brand’s worst eyeshadows ever–and two of the three remaining shades were merely disappointing rather than devastating.

Pink-off

MAC Pink-off Nicopanda Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.11 oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightly creamy texture that had some slip–again, not actually a “matte” as described. The lipstick applied fairly evenly, but the slight slip in the texture made it more prone to settling into my lip lines over time, and I think this was exacerbated with the stronger white base that came through the color itself. It wore well for four hours with some settling into lip lines, while the formula itself was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Galactic Mint

MAC Galactic Mint Nicopanda Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.11 oz.) is a light, bluish-aqua with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was somewhat buildable, but it had a chalkier texture and look so every imperfection was obvious and the lipstick finish was unforgiving. The color pulled away at every lip line, sunk into my lip lines, and wore away unevenly over three and a half hours of time. The formula was non-drying.

Me So Chic

MAC Me So Chic Patrick Starrr Face Kit ($49.50 for 0.74 oz.) contains an eyeshadow quad, blush duo, lipstick, and lipgloss–and everything is full-sized, so it’s actually a great value set if you happen to like the shades included. Based on the last price I have for a blush duo, I’m getting a value of $95.50. Of the two sets, I felt this one performed better overall with a very lovely cheek duo, easy-to-wear lip products, and a decent eyeshadow palette.
