MAC Out of This Pearl & Summer Chromance Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Out of This Pearl MAC Out of This Pearl Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) has a clear base with flecks of gold and copper sparkle. It was actually described as “clear with gold pearl” (finally!), so the resulting sheer coverage (in the form of shimmer/sparkle) was as expected. The gloss had a smooth, moderately sticky consistency that minimized my lip lines and didn’t settle into them. It lasted well for four hours and felt moisturiz...

MAC Too Cool for Pool & Would Rather Lounge Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Too Cool for Pool MAC Too Cool for Pool Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark coral-red with moderate, warm undertones and light gold pearl throughout. It had semi-sheer color coverage that could have applied a bit more evenly, though it didn’t look so bad from a normal viewing distance. The texture was light-medium in thickness, moderately tacky, but it didn’t feel heavy or glue-like on my lips. It wore well for four a...

MAC Foiled Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Sunphoria (Feminine Wiles) MAC Sunphoria (Feminine Wiles) Foiled Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish that was slightly more sparkly than other shades in the same formula. The texture was soft, lightly creamy, and blendable without being too firmly or too softly pressed into the pan, though it wasn’t quite as creamy as other shades in the line. It had good p...

MAC Cote d’Amour, Set to Sizzle, & Wham Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Cote d'Amour MAC Cote d’Amour Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen with very, very faint pearl–the kind that adds luminosity but not overt shimmer. The consistency was lightly emollient, wet without being too slippery, and felt lightweight, which made it comfortable to apply in a single layer as it didn’t drag or tug on my lips. It had good color coverage tha...

MAC A La Plage & Cannes Do! Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

A La Plage MAC A La Plage Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, peachy-pink with moderate, warm undertones and fine, gold and pink pearl throughout. It had a Lustre finish, which is designed to have sheerer coverage; I found it had semi-sheer coverage that built up to medium or slightly higher. The consistency was lightweight, thin without feeling clingy, and there was a bit of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, which ...

MAC Bronze Collection Swatches

MAC Bronze Collection released earlier this month at Ulta, and a lot of it sold out (go figure!), but the collection is supposed to launch on MAC’s website on June 1st, so here are swatches for your perusal! As a FYI, the five Foiled Eyeshadows are actually previously-released shades but with new names–which is really odd for MAC as they repromote but usually use the same name! For reference: Sunphoria = Feminine Wiles (slightly cooler this time around), White Haute ...

Estee Lauder Mind Game, Spellbound, Passion Pure Color Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Mind Game Estee Lauder Mind Game Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm, rosier undertones and a satin finish. It had a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that felt less velvety compared to most shades in the range–more of a true satin, so there was a bit of slip–and had excellent adherence for an even lay down of opaque coverage in a single layer. It stayed on nicely f...

Marc Jacobs Work It, Skin Deep, Call Me Enamored Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Work It (342) Marc Jacobs Beauty Work It (342) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium, taupe-brown with neutral undertones and a cream finish. It had an almost vinyl-like shine to it, as it looked particularly smooth with a very glossy, high-shine finish. The consistency was smooth, lightweight but thicker in feel, which gave it a plusher feel on my lips. I was impressed by just how smoothing the formula...

It’s A YOLO Makeup Day Start Opening That Makeup Vault I Need to See What’s Inside

If you read my long-winded Instagram post yesterday you know I spent part of the day opening up Star Wars Collectibles that I purchased on May 4th. It was a just because moment…! I sat on the floor, I hauled it all out, and I ripped into with my teeth. About 75% of it was never supposed to be opened at all. I was planning on displaying in the packaging or hoarding it away somewhere. But if this current situation has taught me anything at all it’s you only live once. Let me tell you, I ev...

Revlon Brazilian Tan, Pink Cognito, Love is On Super Lustrous Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Brazilian Tan Revlon Brazilian Tan Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which made it more pigmented than described, but could be an upside for those who prefer fuller coverage lipstick. The texture felt lightweight, emollient without being slippery, and thin but not clingy. It stayed on nicely fo...

Sydney Grace Thinking of You Blush Review & Swatches

Thinking of You Sydney Grace Thinking of You Pressed Blush ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a rich, deep coral with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. It was incredibly pigmented to the point where a small tap of the brush picked up enough coverage to get one started. While the consistency was blendable and fairly forgiving, it was definitely easier to build up coverage if necessary than to tamp it down–even knowing it was a...

Marc Jacobs Rio & Cream and Sugar Enamored Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Rio (354) Marc Jacobs Beauty Rio (354) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with strong, blue undertones and a cream finish. It suffered from the kind of issues typically seen with more pastel, cream-finish glosses: slightly uneven application with product that settled into lines. It was better-performing than the average gloss I’ve come across with those characteristics, but it can be...

Estee Lauder Angel Lips, Starlit Pink, Frosted Apricot Hi-Lustre Lipsticks Reviews & Swaatches

Angel Lips Estee Lauder Angel Lips Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen with very faint pearl. It had more of a pearl-like quality to it than overt shimmer, so it was a lot less shimmery compared to past releases in this formula. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, rather than medium, so it was also more pigmented than marketed (which may ...

10 New Beauty Picks To for Summer 2020

We might all be stuck in the house right now and it may be literally snowing in May but Summer is coming even though it feels like ages away! It’s been pretty cold here in Gotham. We’ve had heavy winds, rain, and yes, a bit of snow too. Oddly enough, the start of April was very promising with beautifully warm weather but soon enough it changed into cold wetness which is continuing into May. I sure hope Summer gets here soon and with the warmer weather. Here’s a few new makeup and beauty p...

Tom Ford Dashing, Equus, Fascinator Lip Color Mattes Reviews & Swatches

Dashing Tom Ford Beauty Dashing Lip Color Matte ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, medium orange-coral with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but the color separated along my deeper lip lines a bit, which made it harder to get really smooth, even coverage. The texture was creamy, smooth, and glided on easily without feeling slippery, but it was slightly denser (though not heavy...

ColourPop She’s So Solstice Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

She's Got Solstice Colour Pop She’s So Solstice 9-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($14.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a new, nine-pan palette that features a mix of warmer pops of brown and coral with a few shimmers. For those who don’t already have a plethora of ColourPop palettes, it might appeal, but there was a fair amount of overlap with past releases (more current and further in the past). The performance is consistent with more rece...

If you could revamp one brand, which one and why?

I’d have to say MAC or Urban Decay because they’re both brands I really enjoyed years ago but am less drawn to these days – not that they don’t have some stellar products in their core ranges or some interesting limited launches, but there’s something missing. With MAC, I think some of... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Sephora Be Proud & I’m a Legend Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Be Proud (43) Sephora Be Proud (43) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish with barely-there, micro-shimmer. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and fluidly across my lips in a single stroke. The texture was creamy, almost like it melted against the warmth of my lips, and had a fair amount of slip–the impressive part being how well it s...

What is your most used highlighter (of all-time)? Least used?

I don’t use it as a cheek highlighter but rather all-over and mixed with foundation: Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter!

MAC x Selena Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours Reviews & Swatches

Siempre Selena MAC Siempre Selena Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, though it was just shy of truly full coverage. The texture was fluid without being too watery nor too heavy, so it applied evenly, spread well, and didn’t settle into my lip lines or emphasize lip texture. It wore well for over ...

MAC x Selena Lip Pencils Reviews & Swatches (Quick)

Selenaville MAC Selenaville Lip Pencil ($17.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a light, pink-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. It might have been the firmest, sharpest lip pencil I ever had the displeasure of swatching! It was physically painful to try and swatch it on my arm, which made it harder to work with, period. It would be best used as a liner but not to fill-in as a base as a result–too much tugging for semi-sheer to semi-opa...

MAC La Reina & Selena Vive Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

La Reina MAC La Reina Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light, peachy brown with strong, warm yellow undertones and a cream finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging during application. The texture was lightweight, dense without being too firm, and had light slip, so it glided on but didn’t feel slippery while it was worn. This shade lasted nicely for four and a half hours ...

MAC Inolvidable & Queen of Cumbia Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Inolvidable MAC Inolvidable Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle throughout. The texture was noticeably gritty from the glitter–it wasn’t the most comfortable to apply in a fluid motion–and did not seem to apply evenly. The product was prone to settling into my deeper lip lines and emphasized lip texture/imperfections. It had semi-opaque color coverage tha...

It had semi-sheer to medium coverage that lasted ...
