MAC x Antonio Lopez Face/Pink Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez Face/Pink Palette ($46.00 for 0.45 oz.) contains an iridescent powder (0.12 oz.), blush (0.13 oz.), and beauty powder (0.20 oz.). It’s a limited edition palette that releases on September 12th. I can’t remember the last time a full-sized Iridescent powder came out (to my recollection, which is not infallible, there were some in Fafi, which were $21 a pop and contained 0.28 oz., and blushes were $17.50 then, so my guess is these would be around $24), and then blushes are typically $21.00 for 0.21 oz. and beauty powders are typically $24.00 for 0.35 oz. So the palette contains $9.00 worth of iridescent powder, $13.00 worth of blush, and $13.71 worth of beauty powder–a total value of $35.72. You pay for convenience and variety, but if you only used one or two shades, you might consider finding similar products individually.

Belightful is described as a “light bronze with golden shimmer.” It’s a sheer, golden champagne base with copper and gold sparkle. This color has been released previously (both alone as well as in palettes). I’m not a huge fan of it, because it tends to emphasize pores and imperfections on the skin. It lasted six hours well on my skin, but then it turned somewhat patchy and looked faded from there. theBalm Mary Lou-manizer has a similar effect without the copper sparkle. MAC Redhead is more coppery on its own, less sparkly. Chanel Mouche de Beaute is more golden. See comparison swatches.

Pure Femininity is described as a “mid-tone blue pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a cool-toned, cotton candy pink with a nearly matte finish–it doesn’t even show any sheen unless it’s really buffed into skin (but then it’s very, very sheer). The color payoff was good, and the texture wasn’t too dry or powdery. This shade wore well for seven hours and looked somewhat faded after eight hours of wear. theBalm Argyle is warmer. Edward Bess Bed of Roses is darker, warmer. NARS Angelika is darker. MAC Peony Petal is cooler-toned. MAC I’m the One is similar. Bobbi Brown Pastel Pink is also similar. See comparison swatches.

Peaceful is described as a “mid-tone peach.” It’s a light-medium orange (I guess you could say orange-peach) with a satiny finish. The texture was very, very powdery and a bit dry. Initially applied, it looked somewhat powdery on the skin, so I’d recommend lightly finishing by spraying a fixing spray or facial mist to take down that powderiness on the skin (just water works, too). This product wore for nearly six hours but was almost invisible by the seventh hour. NARS Realm of the Senses #3 is more shimmery. NARS Luster and NARS Gina are both darker. MAC Barefaced is browner, darker. MAC Solar Ray is more shimmery. MAC Warmth of Coral is darker, more orange. MAC Blazing Haute is slightly more yellow-toned but similar. See comparison swatches.

Once again, the blush is beautiful, but the rest is sub par. Stop with the 80 million collections per year and put out a stellar product. Other companies do it all the time.

I love those type of colour but the quality is not worth it according to your review. I already have similar shades in blushes from tarte and Lancôme that are of great quality

i love how you broke down the $$! that’s so helpful! thanks…i love getting pallets, but when they are worth it…this, unfortunately, is not.

I am sad this got such a poor rating because I REALLY could use a blush pallet like this. I am considering getting it anyway…. But the last time I defied your review it was on the GOD AWFUL Veronica pallet from the Mac Archie collection. Needless to say, it got 0 use because it’s literally useless.

But, on a brighter note, what lip color are you wearing here Christine? It’s amazing!
