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.

MAC Unicorn Dust Powder Blush

MAC Unicorn Dust Powder Blush

MAC Unicorn Dust Powder Blush

Unicorn Dust

Unicorn Dust is a soft, light-medium lavender with warm, pink undertones and a pearly sheen. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, slightly dusty texture that did feel drier than most of MAC’s blushes, but I found it totally workable in practice as the powder applied evenly, blended out well, and wore well for eight hours.

MAC Otaku Eyeshadow

MAC Otaku Eyeshadow

Otaku

Otaku is a light lavender with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, velvety texture that was easy to blend out. This shade would be better over a primer as it had a tendency to look faded within six hours of application otherwise.

MAC Harajuku Blu Eyeshadow

MAC Harajuku Blu Eyeshadow

Harajuku Blu

Harajuku Blu is a dark, violet purple with cooler undertones and flecks of micro-sparkle. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was somewhat buildable, but it was drier and took a fair amount of effort to diffuse the edges. There was some fallout during application, but otherwise, the color stayed intact for seven and a half hours.

MAC Panda Riot Eyeshadow

MAC Panda Riot Eyeshadow

Panda Riot

Panda Riot is a blackened navy blue with faint, mid-tone blue pearl over a more matte finish. It had good color payoff, but the texture was drier, firmer, and stiffer to work with, which made blending more of a challenge as the eyeshadow did not like to diffuse evenly along the edges. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

MAC Atomic Blush Eyeshadow

MAC Atomic Blush Eyeshadow

Atomic Blush

Atomic Blush is a pale, blue-leaning aqua with a matte finish. It was powdery and chalky, which made the semi-sheer eyeshadow even more prone to sheering out when applied. It also had a nasty habit of absorbing into the skin–even over MAC’s own primer–and looking like an uneven, texture-emphasizing mess. It was an absolute waste of time to use, and I had to reapply it six different times, packing it on each time, by the time I was “done” with the look to have it even show up for photos. It really did not wear well (and again, I also tried it over the brand’s primer), as it was nearly gone within a half hour of wear.
