Moons of Saturn

MAC Moons of Saturn Full Face Kit ($40.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes two Cream Colour Bases and one Sculpting Powder. The Cream Colour Base formula is supposed to have sheer, buildable coverage with a dewy finish that lasts for “eight hours on face and body” and has “lasting wear for hours on eyes. I tend to prefer Cream Colour Bases on cheeks for better wear and application, but for use on eyes, they’re best used as an all-over wash of color or on the brow bone to add shine. I think this particular kit worked well together, though I’m expecting that the more orange-toned powder to be less-than-ideal for many as it is very warm and orange.

Rhea

Rhea is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had a really creamy, smooth consistency that was blendable and easy to work with on the skin. What I liked was how easy it was to get sheerer coverage that looked like a stain as well as more opaque color without it feeling or looking greasy. On me, the color wore well for eight hours as a blush and six hours as an eye product.

Gypsum

Gypsum is a light-medium gold with fine light gold and medium gold pearl. It was rather sheer, and it was not buildable, so it always looked like a sheer wash of sheen with no color (on my skin tone). It seemed like it had a mostly translucent base, so I don’t expect too much color to show even on very fair complexions. The consistency was moderately emollient with more slip, but it didn’t migrate over time, though it seemed to wear away after seven hours on the cheeks and only lasted for a few hours on my eyes before creasing.

Natural Sandstone

Natural Sandstone is a medium brown with strong, warm orange undertones paired with a matte finish. It had medium coverage that was somewhat buildable. The consistency was drier, not too firm in the pan, so it was blendable on the skin and I was still able to get product onto the brush without having to jab at the pan to do so. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading.

While Rhea is quite pretty and subtly glowing, that contour powder is much to orange and makes me think of……a Cheeto Oompah Lumpah! Not the look I’d ever want to imitate, LoL.

I was surprised by the strength of orange in it! I don’t mind it as a standalone shade, but it’s obviously not going to be everyone’s first choice so for a kit, it didn’t seem like a great choice.

I like CCBs but oof that powder is too orange. Anyway this is a lot like the sheer color trio from Hourglass that I’ve really been wanting but haven’t pulled the trigger on.

What a lovely palette! I’ve always been a tad bit skeptical with some of MAC’s face / eye kits simply because they typically get a lower rating and doesn’t perform as well! I love the packaging on this too!

I thought I would like this kit but Natural Sandstone is way too orange to be a contouring shade, or even a bronzer, on my skin tone!

Yikes! That sculpting powder is *really* orange! No way could I use it as a sculpting powder. Rhea is a very pretty coral, though.

While these shades does don’t suit my needs/aesthetic, I can see them all working well together, even the orangey contour shade. However, it would take a skilled/practiced hand, but I think they would really compliment each other.
