ColourPop x Rudolph There's Always Tomorrow Lip Duo Review & Swatches

There's Always Tomorrow ColourPop There’s Always Tomorrow Lip Duo ($16.00 for 0.145 oz.) is a new, limited edition red-hued lip duo that included a cream finish lipstick and a matching lip pencil. They were both in a deeper, ruby red with strong, cool undertones. They had more opaque coverage and longer-wear, though the lip pencil wasn’t quite as smooth nor as gliding as ideal if you need your lip pencil to work for both lining as wel...

ColourPop x Rudolph I Think You're Cute Lip Duo Review & Swatches

I Think You're Cute ColourPop I Think You’re Cute Lip Duo ($16.00 for 0.145 oz.) is a new, limited edition beige lip duo that included a darker beige lipstick with a cream lipstick and a slightly darker beige lip liner. The two products were pigmented and wore well, though the liner could emphasize lip texture a bit if used for more than just lining the edges of one’s lips. Ingredients ...

MAC Good Moaninnnn & Junie Bee Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Good Moaninnnn MAC Good Moaninnnn Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, peachy coral with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which could be built to nearly full coverage with a second layer but needed a lip pencil underneath to get it to be opaque. The texture was lightweight, dense without being stiff to work with, and applied evenly across my lips without tugging. The f...

MAC A Rose in Harlem & I Got a Man Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

A Rose in Harlem MAC A Rose in Harlem Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark red with cooler, blue undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation that covered my lips evenly and sat well on them, though there was a hint of translucency. The lipstick had a slightly denser consistency, but it wasn’t stiff or difficult to work with, as the product had enough creaminess to it to glide over my lips comfortably. I...

MAC x Selena Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Bidi Bidi Bom Bom MAC Bidi Bidi Bom Bom Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a light pink with moderate, warm undertones and lots of shimmer and micro-sparkle throughout. The consistency was thicker than your typical gloss, though consistent with MAC’s formula, with moderate tackiness, but it had a smooth, plush feel as it spread well over my lips and smoothed out some of my lip lines. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage that lasted ...

Fenty Beauty Pastel Frost (8) Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Pastel Frost (8) Fenty Beauty Pastel Frost (8) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, permanent all-shimmer palette that proved disappointing. The newer Fenty palettes were inconsistent, but the matte eyeshadows tended to be more workable and easier to use all-around, while the shimmers were all over the place. These were some of the worst as they were thicker and stiffer in texture, which yiel...

MAC Heart Heist, Painted Lady, Voyeur-is-me Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Heart Heist MAC Heart Heist Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied without streaking, but there was a noticeable amount of product that sank into my lip lines (both vertical and horizontal at that). The gloss had a smooth, spreadable consistency but was a bit heavier and thicker than most glosses on the market, and...

MAC Female Gaze & Deco-a-Go-Go Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Female Gaze MAC Female Gaze Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) has a translucent base with flecks of gold, pink, and copper shimmer and flecks of micro-sparkle. It seemed like it was deliberately a sheerer gloss, though it was not described as so (which is its major “failing”). The texture was slightly thicker than the average gloss, which helped the shimmer disperse more evenly. It applied fairly evenly, but it did enhance and bring ou...

MAC Fleur d’Coral, Sugar Sweet Cameo, Yash Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Fleur d'Coral MAC Fleur d’Coral Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light, pink-leaning coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had a “Lustre” finish, which is the brand’s sheerer (on purpose) coverage formula; this particular shade had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to medium coverage with a second layer. The texture was emollient, lightweight, and thin but didn’t feel clingy, and there was a touch of product th...

MAC Baroque the Internet & Sugar Diva Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Baroque the Internet MAC Baroque the Internet Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, even lay down of opaque coverage in a single, fluid stroke. The texture was lightly creamy, dense without being heavy or too thick, and comfortable to apply and to wear. It stayed on well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrati...

MAC Postmodernist Peach Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review & Swatches

Postmodernist Peach MAC Postmodernist Peach Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($37.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a light, peachy gold with strong, warm undertones and a smooth, luminous sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, though the firmer (not stiff) texture made it easier to pick up less product by using less pressure or a more feathery brush. The consistency was smooth to the touch and worked best with a moderately dense brush...

MAC x Disney Aladdin #1 Wish Crystal Glaze Gloss Reviews & Swatches

#1 Wish MAC #1 Wish Crystal Glaze Gloss ($24.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a translucent gloss with flecks of pink and peach shimmer–and it was designed to be clear. It’s a thicker, more balm-like gloss with a high-shine finish, barely-there pearl, and a nice, comfortable feel on lips. The shimmer was very fine, so while it was “sheer” in amount, it was barely-there in impact (which may or may not be your cup of tea!). For those who like a plusher gloss but don’t want tackiness, this is in that ...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Rajah & Whole New World Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Rajah MAC Rajah Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging. The texture was velvety, lightweight, and creamy enough to be comfortable to apply and to wear. There was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines but not enough that it was visible from a normal viewing distance. this shade...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Rose Pigment Reviews & Swatches

Rose MAC Rose Pigment ($21.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and much warmer, golden shimmer (and lots of it!) that gave it a metallic finish. It’s a loose product, but it has a chunkier shimmer to it–more frosted than most shimmers are these days–and tends to work best really pressed and patted on with fingertips or applied with a wet brush. Applied dry as an eyeshadow, I find it tends to have a fair amount of fallout (even when I’m careful), but it ...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Jewels on Jewels MAC Jewels on Jewels Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a pearl finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied somewhat evenly to my lips, but from a normal viewing distance, it didn’t look quite as uneven as I know it actually was. The gloss had a smooth, moderately tacky consistency that was comfortable to wear, as it felt plush rather than heavy. It lasted well for four hours and was moisturizing while worn. Top ...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Your Wish is My Command Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Your Wish is My Command MAC Your Wish is My Command Powder Blush ($35.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It seemed balanced between red and orange and didn’t have some of the saturation that some warmer bronzers can have. The texture was velvety and smooth to the touch, which made it easier to pick up and blend out on my skin. Historically, MAC’s limited edition bronzers have had ratings all over the place but are often very stiff and diff...

The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, while the texture was lightly creamy, emollient without being slippery, and denser in the tube but not to the point where it dragged or tugged on my lips during application. The color applied evenly but had a tendency to separate along my deeper lip lines. It stayed on well for four hours and was light...

Always One Jump Ahead MAC Always One Jump Ahead Powder Blush ($35.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium gold with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, blendable consistency that was easy to apply and diffuse along the edges for a seamless finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, and silky without being powdery (nor was it stiff in the pan)–it was denser and creamier than most of the Powder Blus...

MAC Prissy Princess MAC Girls Personality Palette

MAC Aeros Blue Prolongwear Fluidline & Bionic Bae Technahol Liner

Aeros Blue MAC Aeros Blue Pro Longwear Fluidline ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark blue with strong, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had medium coverage in a single stroke, and it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The formula is supposed to have 8-hour wear and be waterproof and smudge-proof. I found the the texture to be very emollient, which made it difficult to build up color or get really thin, even lines (I used MAC’s 266 brush in the swatch and in practice). ...

MAC Chromatbabe Super Pack Eyeshadow Palette

It is a deeper, darker, smokier palette with a pop of bright orange and cyan blue. The palette is part of the Chromat collection, which launches today (June 29th) online and at select MAC locations. I suspect that the color combination will appeal strongly to some but will not work for all. It was decent overall, but the lighter blue was a real l...

It lasted for over eight hours and was lightly drying toward the end of wear. The shade is part of the upcoming MAC Chromat collection, whi...
