MAC Totally Taupeless Radiant Matte Bronzing Face Powder Review & Swatches

Totally Taupeless MAC Totally Taupeless Radiant Matte Bronzing Face Powder ($32.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. As the powder was buffed and blended onto my skin, the satin finish became more prominent. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage, though it was marketed as being “sheer-to-medium buildable coverage.” The texture was silky and finely-milled without being powdery, bu...

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 ...

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...

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 ...

MAC Selena La Reina La Leyenda Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review & Swatches

La Leyenda MAC La Leyenda Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($37.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm peachy undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer with a smooth, dense, and slightly firmer consistency, so it was easy to pick up more or less product as desired. The powder applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. I’d recomm...

We’ll Be Dreaming of MAC’s Second Selena Collection Until It’s All in Our Makeup Bag

MAC's Selena Quintanilla makeup collection nearly broke the internet when it launched back in 2016 and sold out in a matter of minutes, but now the brand is giving fans of the late Tejano icon a second chance at getting their hands on makeup inspired by her. The brand announced on Feb. 25 that a second capsule collection honoring Selena will be launching on April 21. The first MAC x Selena collection was released on Oct. 1, 2016, to a pretty overwhelming response; it immediately sold out on Macc...

MAC Tutu Good, Jingle Ball Bronze, Motif, If It Ain’t Baroque, Marsh Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Tutu Good MAC Tutu Good Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy copper base with flecks of pink and copper sparkle throughout. It had a more textured feel to it due to the amount (and size) of sparkle in the finish, and it seemed drier, too, so there was some fallout and difficulty in getting the product to lay smoothly on my lid. I’d recommend applying it with a fingertip or a dampened brush as both methods yielde...

MAC Shady Santa, Haute Sauce, Rose Before Bros, Finjan, Royal Rendezvous Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Shady Santa MAC Shady Santa Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firmer, almost stiff, compared to most of the newer-formula matte shades. It was harder to diffuse and blend out along the edges, but it was workable with some extra effort. It had good pigmentation that built up to full coverage with a second layer and was best applied by pressing and p...

MAC Natural Wilderness, Sandstone, Greystone, Carbon, In Living Pink Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Natural Wilderness MAC Natural Wilderness Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a lighter, very yellowy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, while the texture was smooth to the touch, not too firmly nor too softly pressed in to the pan. I had no trouble picking up product with a dry brush and diffusing the edges. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.FURTHER READ...

Cozy Grey MAC Cozy Grey Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a very light taupe, or alternatively, a subtly, cool-toned darker beige, with a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which had a smooth, velvety texture that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. The formula felt more substantial and denser than some of the brand’s matte shades, so it was more yielding but it still blended o...

Humblebrag MAC Humblebrag Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a very light lavender with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of cooler pink micro-sparkle. The texture was soft, moderately powdery, and a little drier to the touch, so it was more prone to fallout and didn’t adhere as well to bare skin. I’d definitely recommend wearing this with a primer, which helped the product to go on more readily. It had medium coverage that was b...

MAC What’s the WiFI, Mint Condition, Stormwatch, Triennial Wave, Power to the Purple Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

The eyeshadow had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges without sheering out too readily. The texture was lightly powdery, so it was more sensitive to natural oils or dampness on the skin, which means you’ll want to apply...

MAC Dazzleshadow Extreme Reviews & Swatches (Part 2)

Incinerated MAC Incinerated Dazzleshadow Extreme ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense and more firmly-pressed into the pan, so it needed a firmer hand or a denser brush to pick up product well (e.g. a pencil brush picked up product fairly well but a fluffy brush was difficult to use with it). It had good color coverage in a si...

Alexa Demie on Being Everyone's New Favorite Makeup Muse: "I'm Not Mad"

For the 25 years I've been on this planet, I never once had the innate urgency to bedazzle my eyelid crease with tiny rhinestones. Then, around some time last August, I watched Euphoria and was introduced to Maddy Perez, played by Alexa Demie. Almost all at once I, along with a vast majority of my generation, became eager to craft the most experimental makeup looks we could dream up. While most of the credit for that goes to the show's creator Sam Levinson and makeup department head Doniella Da...
