Dame Edna lipsticks and lipglasses swatches on lips! 🙂 As always, these are quick & dirty swatches so if they’re not perfect, you know why!
OVERALL, Dame Edna’s lipsticks stand out the most for me, because they are ultra-pigmented and extremely creamy in texture. They almost have a matte-look, but because of their sheen, not quite so. The lipglasses are not as pigmented as the lipsticks, but on the other hand, they complement the lipsticks well. The eye trios disappointed me, mostly because I felt that too many of the shadows had a chalky texture, which I just can’t jive with. Another downside to this launch is the fact that MAC has, yet again, used stickers on their packaging. On the eyeshadow trios, the stickers are covered with plastic/something so they shouldn’t come off (at least not easily), but everything else is just a flat sticker. It’s nothing special, and you can certainly peel it off if you desire. The high-light powders, while pretty to look at, are not nearly as special once you get past the shimmer overspray–I felt duped with these; it reminded me of lipsticks that had a gold overspray and then regular lipstick underneath. The collection is definitely worth a look or two, but I wouldn’t say you have to rush out on the 26th–not worth skipping out on your holidays and festivities and family fun yet!
Individual reviews of the products…
After waiting an hour in the cold at UPS, I arrived home with my MAC Dame Edna package! So, of course, photos first, then swatches, and finally the review. I’m posting photos in two posts, just because there are so many!
See product photos of the eyeshadow palettes and highlight powders!
MAC Cosmetics’ Dame Edna Collection is now available to order online! For those of you who have as little desire as me to get thee to the mall on the 26th (seriously, are you nuts?), order ahead 😉 If you qualify for free shipping, you can upgrade to 2-day for $5 or so (not a bad deal!)–you’ll probably end up getting it the 26th, too! I already placed an order with Los Angeles PRO, and I’m really, really hoping my order arrives today. C’mon UPS!
