MAC x Sharon Osbourne Patentpolish Lip Pencils

MAC x Sharon Osbourne Patentpolish Lip Pencils

The upcoming MAC x Osbournes Collection features four shades of Patentpolish Lip Pencils, which were a new (and limited edition) formula that released at the end of March of this year. Two of the shades are repromotes, so since I just tested them two months ago, I didn’t re-test them for wear, but the shades are the same in regards to texture/color/application. The Patentpolish Lip Pencil formula is supposed to have “the colour and shine of a gloss, the precision of a lip pencil.” They come housed in a jumbo-sized, twist-up lip pencil and contain slightly less product than a lipstick (0.10 oz.). The two new shades in this collection are actually better than many shades I tried when the formula initially launched, as both applied evenly and lasted a bit longer.

MAC French Kiss Patentpolish Lip Pencil ($21.50 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “warm caramel.” It’s a warm-toned, medium brown with muted, orange tones. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage, and the color actually applied quite evenly and smoothly. The shade only lasted two hours on me, though. Maybelline Charming Cocoa (125) (LE) is more opaque, lighter. MAC Show Me (P, $19.50) is darker, more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Innocent Patentpolish Lip Pencil ($21.50 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “nude beige.” It’s a light, warm-toned beige with a creamy, lightly glossy finish. This applied very unevenly, but it did have semi-opaque pigmentation. It lasted an hour and a half. MAC Naked Bud (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Maybelline Nude Lust (920) (P, $7.49) is slightly warmer. MAC Softly Lit (LE, $20.00) is glossier, more shimmery. Buxom Nudist (P, $21.00) is a touch less warm-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Patentpink Patentpolish Lip Pencil ($21.50 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “washed-out lilac.” It’s a cool-toned, light pink with bluish-gray undertones and a light shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which applied somewhat evenly–more evenly than anticipated for this type of color–but could use improvement in that area. It wore well for just over two hours. MAC Rose Lily (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less glossy. MAC Long Love Love (P, $19.50) is glossier, lighter. MAC Divine Choice (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy. MAC Saint Germain (LE, $15.00) is glossier, brighter. MAC Enchantee (LE, $18.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Ruby Patentpolish Lip Pencil ($21.50 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone rose.” It’s a medium-dark, muted berry with cool undertones and a glossy shine. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque poigmentatoin that applied evenly, smoothly, and didn’t settle into lip lines. This shade wore for three hours but didn’t really leave a stain. NARS Sixties Fan (P, $26.00) is brighter. NARS Quito (P, $26.00) is brighter. MAC Fashion Perk (P, $22.00) is more berry-hued. Milani Ravish Raspberry (06) (P, $5.49) is brighter, cooler-toned. Milani Berry Tempting (05) (P, $5.49) is cooler-toned. Marc Jacobs Beauty Studded Kiss (310) (P, $28.00) has shimmer. MAC Colour Saturation (LE, $20.00) is brighter, cooler-toned.

MAC x Sharon Osbourne Lipglasses

MAC x Sharon Osbourne Lipglasses

The upcoming MAC x Osbournes Collection features two shades of Lipglass, both new and limited edition (but of course!), reviewed in-depth below:

MAC Bijou Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft rose.” It’s a medium, subtly yellow-toned pink with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with some noticeable translucency, but it still covered the lip with quite a bit of color. The consistency is slightly thick, tacky, and the formula is vanilla-scented but unflavored. This gloss wore well for four hours on me and was neither hydrating nor drying. Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is lighter. MAC Picture Pink (LE, $15.00) is lighter. NYX Maple Blondie (P, $5.00) is warmer. MAC Viva Glam Nicki (LE, $15.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Angel (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Pussywillow Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light neutral gold.” It’s light and medium gold shimmer suspended in a very subtly yellow-tinted base (really is nearly clear). It had a moderate level of shimmer; it could be worn on its own with noticeable shimmer or layered over another lip color without covering it in all shimmer. I love a gold gloss, don’t get me wrong, but there aren’t a lot of nuances to this type of shade; the differences lie in the size and density of the shimmer/sparkle. The texture was slightly thick but not uncomfortable to wear. It wore well for three hours on me. MAC Gold Mirror (LE, $15.00) is much more opaque. Maybelline Gleaming Gold (120) (LE) is very similar. Bobbi Brown Bare Peach (LE, $24.00) is similar. Bobbi Brown Pure Gold (LE, $24.00) is also similar. MAC Pure Sophistication (LE, $15.00) is slightly more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Canary (P, $24.00) has larger sparkle as well. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Peaches & Cream Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone rose [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium, subtly cool-toned pink with a soft, silvery sheen. MAC Sunset Beach (LE, $30.00) is very similar, just less shimmery. Clinique Plum Pop (04) (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. Milani Bella Rosa (11) (P, $7.99) is darker, more matte. Edward Bess Bed of Roses (P, $43.00) is lighter. MAC Weekend Getaway (LE, $20.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The finish of this gets really lovely and luminous the more the powder is blended and buffed into the skin–you can see in the swatch photo how when it is blended out, the silvery sheen becomes more pronounced, but it’s never over-the-top; it doesn’t emphasize pores or skin imperfections. It was nicely pigmented with a soft, blendable texture that never felt powdery. The color wore well and lasted for eight hours on my skin before starting to fade around the edges.

MAC Duchess Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Duchess Eyeshadow Quad
MAC Duchess Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Duchess Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.19 oz.) contains three limited edition shades and one permanent shade. It’s from the upcoming MAC x Osbournes collaboration collection. The textures of the eyeshadows in this quad were fairly good, with the matte shade being a little drier and harder to blend on the skin. All four shades work well together, but there have been many warm-toned quads like it before, so it may also be more dupable depending on what products you already have.

Sweet Eyes is described as a “light golden nude [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a light, peach with a frosted finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the texture was soft, buttery, and blendable. This shade lasted for almost eight hours on me before starting to fade. This may be a repromote from a long-ago holiday eyeshadow palette, but the one in the 2008 palette seems a bit lighter/more beige and was also listed as a satin finish, so I don’t think they’re really the same. Divergent Humble Sheen (LE) is warmer, darker. theBalm #18 (P, $6.50) is lighter. theBalm #14 (P, $6.50) is similar. MAC Tenderly (LE, $15.00) is similar. theBalm D2 (LE, $16.00) is has a smoother sheen. LORAC Nude (P) is slightly pinker. theBalm Promiscuous Pearl (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Sellout (P, $18.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Slink (LE) is a touch cooler. Dior Fairy Golds #1 (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sexy Eyes is described as a “soft warm bronze [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a medium, coppery brown with a gold-shimmered, frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and fairly smooth, blendable and easy to work with on the lid. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading. MAC Gingersnap (P, $15.00) is redder. Urban Decay Trick (P, $18.00) is more sparkly. MAC Star Myth (LE, $15.00) is a touch darker. bareMinerals Imagine (P) is similar. See comparison swatches
/ view dupes.

Femme Fatale is described as a “golden brown [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium-dark, warm brown with a soft, gold micro-shimmer and yellow undertones. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft, blendable, and only a tiny bit powdery. It stayed well on my lids for seven and a half hours before fading. Sisley Paris Toffee (7) (P, $47.00) is darker. Wet ‘n’ Wild Naked Truth #5 (P, $2.29) is darker, less yellow-toned. Makeup Geek Brown Sugar (P, $5.99) is darker, more red-toned. theBalm C4 (LE, $16.00) is very similar. CoverGirl Melted Caramel (330) (P, $4.99) is less warm-toned, more shimmery. MAC Glimpse of Flesh (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Exposed (LE, $15.00) is a touch darker, slightly redder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Embark is described as a “dark reddish brown [with a Matte finish].” It’s a dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff, but the texture is a combination of soft yet dry, so it doesn’t yield the best color payoff, though it is buildable. It isn’t quite as effortlessly blended, but it is workable. This shade is permanent, though the one included in the quad was less pigmented than the permanent one I have. Make Up For Ever #162 (P, $20.00) is darker, richer. Bobbi Brown Cocoa (P, $22.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC x Sharon Osbourne Makeup Look

MAC x Sharon Osbourne Look
MAC x Sharon Osbourne Look

Here’s a quick look using just Sharon’s products from the MAC x Osbournes Collection. The collection will be available online June 2nd and in-stores on June 12th (North America). Full reviews are still head, so stay tuned! 🙂

Eyes

I used MAC Duchess Eyeshadow Quad for the eye makeup. I started with applying MAC Sweet Eyes Eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid, and then I applied MAC Sexy Eyes Eyeshadow on the middle of the lid. In the outer corner and crease, I applied MAC Femme Fatale Eyeshadow. To darken the crease, I applied MAC Embark Eyeshadow. I highlighted the brow bone with MAC Sweet Eyes Eyeshadow dusted on. For the lash line, I opted for Marc Jacobs Beauty Brownout Highliner Gel Crayon (I’m in the process of testing), but you could use MAC Bountiful Brown (included in the collection), which is a long-time permanent shade. To fill in brows, I mixed the two shades from Kelly’s MAC Morning Mister Magpie Brow Duo.

Face

For foundation, I used Make Up For Ever #2 Lift Foundation and then set with Urban Decay Light-Medium Naked Loose Finishing Powder. I started adding color to the cheeks by using the bronzer side of MAC Refresh Mineralize Skinfinish Duo to lightly contour the hollows of my cheeks, and then I applied MAC Peaches & Cream Blush to the apples of cheeks for color. To add luminosity, I used the highlighter section of MAC Refresh Mineralize Skinfinish Duo and dusted it lightly across the tops of the cheek bones.

Lips

First, I applied MAC Ruby Patentpolish Lip Pencil all over the lips, and then I patted on MAC Pussywillow Lipglass to add glossiness and shimmer.

MAC Bloody Brilliant Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Bloody Brilliant Eyeshadow Quad
MAC Bloody Brilliant Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Bloody Brilliant Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.19 oz.) contains three new, limited edition shades and one permanent shade. It’s from the upcoming MAC x Osbournes collaboration collection. Generally, the color payoff across the quad was semi-sheer to semi-opaque, but it’s a softer, subtler look overall. I think fairer complexions will get the most mileage out of this color combination, as there will be more contrast seen, but shades like Fizzy Rose and Tickety Boo get somewhat lost on a medium complexion like mine. I wish it was more true-to-pan in regards to the pigmentation, though the textures of the palette were okay and the shades lasted between seven and eight hours before fading.

Spoonful of Sugar is described as a “sparkling platinum [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a light silver with subtle warmth and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, and the texture was mostly smooth, but it didn’t have the same buttery, creamy feel of other Veluxe Pearls. It wore well for seven hours on me. theBalm #31 (P, $6.50) is lighter. L’Oreal Silver Sky (757) (P, $7.99) is darker. MAC A Waft of Grey #2 (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. MAC A Party of Pastels #1 (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. MAC Platinum Love (LE, $19.50) is lighter, brighter. MAC Silver Screen (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned. Chanel Infini (P, $28.50) is a touch darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tickety Boo is described as a “soft muted plum brown [with a Satin finish].” It’s a muted, warm mauve with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and the texture was soft but a little powdery/dry in feel. It was easy to blend on the lid, though. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #3 (P) is warmer. Sleek MakeUP Forbidden (P, $9.99) is darker, cooler-toned. Bobbi Brown Amnesia Rose (LE, $22.00) is lighter. Chanel Quadrille #1 (LE) is darker, warmer. Urban Decay Nooner (P, $18.00) is slightly warmer. LORAC Mauve (P) is similar. Chanel Hasard (99) (P, $28.50) is a touch warmer. MAC Blackberry (P, $15.00) is darker, warmer. Illamasqua Forgiveness (LE) is darker, warmer. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #5 (LE) is slightly cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Fizzy Rose is described as a “pale lilac [with a Satin finish].” It’s a light-medium, subtly cool-toned pink-lavender with a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, but the texture was soft and not stiff, so at least it was a more workable eyeshadow. It is best patted on, and if you use a base, even better, too maximize the color coverage. This shade lasted seven hours on me before significantly fading. Tom Ford Beauty Lavender Lust #1 (P) is cooler-toned, brighter. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #4 (LE) is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Shadowy Lady is described as a “blackened plum [with a Matte finish].” It’s a dark, slightly muted, blackened burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. I can’t tell you how many versions I’ve tried of this shade–and it is part of the permanent line-up–and how it swatches every which way. Here, in this quad, it had semi-opaque color coverage, though it was somewhat dry, and I found it harder to blend on the lid–it tended to “stick” where it initially landed. It wears almost eight hours, though. theBalm #27 (P, $6.50) is very similar. theBalm Matt Batali (LE, $16.00) is richer. MAC Graphology (DC, $15.00) is darker, richer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
