MAC Justine Skye Iridescent Powder ($27.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy purple with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of lavender sparkle and fine pearl shimmer. The Iridescent Powder is supposed to give a “hint of soft purple for cheeks with a shimmering pink pearl sheen” that has “buildable coverage” and is “long-wearing.” The consistency was incredibly dense–firmly packed and required a denser brush or slight jabbing motions to get enough product onto the brush. The denser texture made it harder to blend out on the skin as the product tended to go on unevenly, so it took more work to diffuse the color evenly across the cheeks. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) that lasted for seven and a half hours on me.
This product will release April 13th, but it is available for pre-order now.

MAC Dua Lipa Cremesheen Glass ($21.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a clear gloss with flecks of iridescent sparkle. MAC actually described it as a “clear gloss with multi-pearl,” so it was as described. The sparkle was rather sparse, so they did not distribute that evenly across the lips and had little impact on (layered or alone). The formula was smooth, creamy without being heavy, and non-sticky. It wore well for two hours and was hydrating.
This gloss will launch May 25th.
