Snow Nights

Fenty Beauty Snow Nights Frosted Metal Lipstick Set ($36.00 for 0.20 oz.) features three, limited edition frosted lipsticks. I struggled with Frost $auce, which was sheerer and harder to apply evenly, whereas the other two shades were much more pigmented and had better applciations.

Each shade contains 0.065 oz., which is just a smidgen bigger than a full-sized Mattemoiselle Lipstick that contains 0.06 oz. and retails for $18.00. This formula hasn’t been released previously, but using the price point on the Mattemoiselle (which has similar packaging, sizing, and so on), this set contains $58.50 worth of lipstick for $36.

Electrum Lamé (905)

Chanel Electrum Lame (905) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a pale, white gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that was blendable and easy to work with, though there was a bit of fallout due. If I used a dampened brush, I was able to get opaque coverage in one layer. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Mull It Over

MAC Mull It Over Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly to my lips, though it had enough slip that the color sank into my lip lines noticeably and some of the product clung noticeably to imperfections on my lips (which I hadn’t seen prior, as I had exfoliated prior to doing the swatches!). It had a lightweight, velvety consistency with noticeable slip that helped it glide across my lips without tugging. It wore well for three hours and was slightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.10 oz. - $190.00 Per Ounce

MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to feel "weightless" with a "blur of effortless soft-focus color." Per the brand, the formula "provides immediate and long-term hydration" while "blur[ring] lines and smooth[ing] lips" and having "zero-shine." They have a bit of shine and slip; I wouldn't call them zero-shine so much as very smooth and more like a natural or soft matte finish. Like any finish with slight shine, they did wear down to a more, flat matte finish within an hour or so of wear. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and velvety with a bit of slip (a little like a silicone primer to me) and was comfortable to wear with a non-drying to lightly hydrating feel.

The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque with deeper shades having more coverage. There were a few very light shades, which did not apply as evenly and had a tendency to catch on any imperfections on my lips, whereas the deeper shades went on more smoothly and looked more flattering on as they were less likely to emphasize texture. They lasted between two and a half and six hours with deeper shades, unsurprisingly, lasting longer than the ultra-light ones.

I personally found the scent of these to be noticeably different, both that it was sweeter and less vanilla-based but I also got a strong rubber scent that came through. The scent did not linger for long, so it wasn't something that I detected throughout the wear, but it had a strong, sweet taste that was present until it was gone. Other readers who have smelled the formula in person did not catch any rubber/off-putting scent (my husband thought it smelled weird, not bad per se, but couldn't be more specific), and when I went back to double check each shade, each one of mine still had that rubbery note.

Flaming Lips (812)

Chanel Flaming Lips (812) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a rich, ruby red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a metallic pearl paired with a shiny, glossy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly across my lips without emphasizing my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, light-medium in thickness but still lightweight, and mostly non-sticky. The gloss did feel a bit thicker compared to other Rouge Coco Glosses, but it was also much more pigmented than the typical shade, though officially the formula runs “sheer to opaque” (and rarely gives insight in what’s what!). This shade stayed on well for five hours and was hydrating over time. I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding, but keep in mind that those are not things I normally experience.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.19 oz. - $157.89 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “intense shine, hydration” with a “gel-like texture” with shades that vary from “sheer to opaque” in coverage. The consistency has a smooth, lightweight texture that can feel more like a gel-like texture with some of the sheerer shades and more like a cream and gel hybrid with more opaque shades. It’s a formula that’s comfortable to wear with light tackiness that lasts anywhere from two to four hours and is hydrating over time.

There was a strong, mirror-like shine across the shades that was very reminiscent of the prior Glossimer formula. There was a faint floral scent, and with some shades, I got a subtle taste of perfume. The doe foot applicator was more unique (at least, to me) with a very curved edge that was great for my bottom lip while flipping it gave me a more paddle-shaped edge that worked better for my top lip.

I would love to see Chanel introduce color descriptions on their retail website, especially for a formula like this where there can be such a huge difference in pigmentation (and finish) from one shade to the next that isn’t obvious from a product photo.

MAC Shiny Pretty Things Colour Collection Swatches

MAC Shiny Pretty Things Colour Collection
MAC Shiny Pretty Things Colour Collection

Here are swatches of the just released MAC Shiny Pretty Things Colour Collection. The colour collection features two highlighters, five lipsticks, five lipglosses, five eyeshadows, and four liquid eyeliners. I’ll give a fair warning that the eyeshadows are glitter-packed and do live up to the claim of having “endless, shifting depth and dimension” and found the shades to shift and move significantly depending on the temperature of the lighting (Joy To looked blue in some lighting and lavender in others, and then it had an oddly warm-toned base that came through when angled and in photographs).

There are also a slew of sets and the like, which I don’t have at this time — I’m confirming whether I’ll be receiving samples, and if not, I’ll be prioritizing what I think I can purchase and review in a timely manner, but I don’t have anything to share at this time. Thank you for understanding!
