A few weeks ago MAC released one of their bigger summer collections. At my surprise a lot of it is still available online and in stores.
Mineralized Eye Shadows– $21
Cha Cha Cha– Deep blue-green with green pearl
Time To Tango– Lavender with silver pearl
Caribbean– Rose with pink and red pearl
*swatched dry and wet*
I normally pass on the Mineralized Shadows but these 3 were really beautiful. I’ve learned that online pics really don’t do a lot of mineralized products justice. Time to Tango is my favorite and Cha-Cha-Cha is absolutely gorgeous.
Tropical Taboo Mineralized Blushes– $25
Sweet Samba– Dark pink with tan pearl
Simmer– Blunt rose with peach/gold pearl
Exotic Ember– Orange with bronze pearl
*swatched dry, wet and blended*
Sweet Samba is probably something you’ve seen before but honey I just adore Simmer and Exotic Ember. Simmer has bunches of gold shimmer in it and it makes it so unique. Exotic Ember is a dark girls dream! It’s a great neutral/bronze shade with some pop to it. I don’t recall the last time MAC released something similar.
Mineralized Skin Finishes– $30
Lust– Pale pink with cranberry pearl
Rio– Bronze with bright pink pearl
I’ve a stalker for Limited Edition Mineralized Skin Finished. 3 of 5 of the MSF’s in this collection are LE. I skipped Adore because it’s pale and very metallic but I’ll probably pick it up anyway because I need help. Lust is just wonderful, just everything. Even though my aunt stole it from me but thats ok because today is her birthday. It’s my favorite and WOC friendly.
Mineralized Rich lipstick– $22
Midnight Mambo– Intense violet
MAC released a permanent Mineralized Rich Lipstick collection recently and I didn’t buy from it because I didn’t care for the formula. I really liked this shade though and its limited edition so I picked it up. As you can see it just does not apply evenly. Leave it at the store, it’s no big whoop.
Cremesheen Lipglass– $20
Narcissus– dirty eggplant
Kinda milky and settles in the lines but I like this gloss. I probably won’t wear it alone but I’d definitely apply it over a lipstick.
Midnight Mambo and Narcissus
159 Duo Fibre Face Brush- $35
You know I have to grab every LE brush. I haven’t used it yet but it’s for the mineralized blushes and skin finishes. MAC rereleased the 287 brush in this collection and I swear by that brush. It’s like blending for dummies. It’s my favorite eye shadow brush.
Overall I really liked this collection. It really has a lot of great summer shades. I enjoy a lot of MACs Mineralized Products.
Do you pick up anything?
