Chilled On Ice Paint Pot, Rosé Olé Special Reserve Highlight Powder, Luxure Lipgelée
Chilled On Ice Paint Pot It’s pretty similar to Bare Study Paint Pot, but a more true shimmer and has gold in it. Bare Study is more of a pearl finish, with a silver sheen. This one is very wearable and blends out very well. Alone, the gold glitter can be a little intense when blended out completely. When worn pretty thickly, it’s actually very beautiful, I think I prefer it thicker than blended out.Rosé Olé Special Reserve Highlight powderVery similar in color to the By Candelight Mineralize Skin Finish from last year’s Warm & Cozy collection, but I feel a bit more shimmery and has a slight difference in shade. It’s really quite beautiful when worn on the apples of the cheeks over a darker blush. I’ll probably use it like that more than as a highlight. It’s got quite a smooth application, and feels very much like the mineralize skin finishes.
Luxure LipgeléeIt’s actually quite similar to Sin-tillation lipgelée, just a touch lighter. On the lips it’s really quite the same, glitter wise. They are discontinuing the lipgelées which is another reason I picked this up, so that I’ll really never run out of lipgelées. Again, they’re so much better in terms of price to product amount. The ones in this collection especially are really wearable (not bright pink or orange) so really they can be used all the time.
Kissable LipcoloursStrut Your Stuff, So Vain, Super, Temper TantraTemper TantraNice terracotta/brick red mixed into a nude color. Very wearable, even if slightly dark. I do love colors like this. The formula for all of these lipcolours is just pleasant all around. The formula itself is kind of thick… like a pasty lipgloss or a mashed out lipstick, making it truly a mix between lipgloss and lipstick. When applying, it goes on completely smoothly and not too opaquely but not sheerly at all. It stays on pretty much all day, even through eating, talking and drinking. They don’t really feather either. They finish is a little shinier than a satin, there’s a definite sheen just not an outright gloss like lipglosses have.SuperFor me, this is just the perfect nude color. Because of the sheen it has it doesn’t look like “my lips but better” but it definitely is one of the best nudes I have. I loooooove this one. So VainA corally nude color. Very springtime, in my opinion. Definitely something I’m going to wear more in the spring than let’s say now, in midwinter. In general, I don’t LOVE corals on me but when paired with a coral gloss on top it’s really quite nice. Very spring/summer. Strut Your Stuff
Mega Metal EyeshadowsNoir PlumDark bluish purple. The formula for these are just fantastic. Soft, smooth, easy to blend, pigmented, not over the top frost. Although the more bold colors are probably easily dupable, I think you’re better off getting these because you get so much more product wise than a normal eye shadow from Mac. Yes, you’re paying more, but these are just simply fantastic. There are neutral shades offered as well as the more bold shades. I do love these smokable purple and blues so of course, I’m going to get them. That and teal. You all know how I am with teal.DandizetteNavy with shimmer. Very pretty 🙂OdalisqueTeal with a slight golden shimmer. Beautiful. Another easily dupable color but still, I got it. DallianceVery pretty cool golden yellow shimmer. Almost has a slight green/gray shimmer to it which makes it quite interesting and unique. In terms of neutrals I don’t really have a color like it in my stash. So, it was a very pleasant surprise.
Sharkskin ShadestickSo I originally saw this product here. Probably the best spoof makeup video ever. Not ever, it’s actually hard to choose between the ones she’s made. But I love her. Anyways, I saw the video and actually like the product but had put off purchasing it for so long because it was permanent. I actually finally bought it because it was discontinued. Besides the Warm & Cozy shadesticks, I had never tried the permanent Mac shadesticks so I was very happy with this one when I first tried it. It’s smooth and not greasy at all. The color is very much just a shimmery gunmetal, with a silver shimmer that really stands out on the dark base. Very good for a smokey eye.
Viva Glam Cyndi LipglassOf the Viva Glam Cyndi and Gaga products, I preferred the Cyndi colors. I think it’s just more wearable, especially for me. I’m not a big cotton candy pink person. So, I was thrilled to get this one. It’s essentially the same color as the Cyndi lipstick. The gloss is pretty opaque.
