MAC Heirloom Mix Collection


MAC released their newest collection Heirloom Mix on October 19, 2014 online and October 23, 2014 in-stores and counters. The collection featured pressed pigments, eye kohls, fluidlines, lipsticks, cremesheen glasses, mineralize blushes, glitters and nail lacquers.  The products are housed in special edition packaging so there is a slight price increase for some products.

 
"Strike an heir of sophistication this holiday season with royally rich colour that exudes an aristocratic allure. The modern woman mixes up an irreverent take on tradition with this collection of hues that casts the classic cameo in a contemporary, glittering light. A regal, romantic and daring affair, this holiday is all about colour that leaves a legacy."
Here's what I picked up from the collection...

Lipstick $17.50 USD / $21 CAD (0.10 oz.) [LE]
  •  No Faux Pas is described as a hot pink. [Matte]
  •  Rebel is described as a pink plum. [Satin] [Permanent]
  •  Salon Rouge is described as a clean berry red. [Matte]
  •  Sparks of Romance is described as a true red. [Matte Frost]
No Faux Pas is a bright, fuchsia with cool undertones and a matte finish. The formula was lightly creamy but a tad drying when worn for an extended period of time. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, fully opaque and pigmented. It lasted +7 hours before fading and left behind a stain. (5/5)
Rebel is a medium-dark, pink-berry with cool undertones and a creamy, satin finish. The formula was lightly creamy but a tad drying when worn for an extended period of time. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and mostly opaque. It lasted +6 hours before fading and left behind a faint stain. (5/5)
Salon Rouge is a medium-dark, deepened red with cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. The formula was lightly creamy but a tad drying when worn for an extended period of time. This shade applied smoothly, semi-even, mostly opaque and pigmented. It lasted +6 hours before fading and left behind a faint stain. (5/5)
Sparks of Romance is a medium-dark, brightened red with specks of gold shimmer, cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. The formula was lightly creamy but a tad drying when worn. This shade applied evenly, mostly opaque, pigmented but had a slightly rough texture due to the shimmer. It lasted +6 hours before fading. (5/5)


Cremesheen Glass $22 USD / $25 CAD (0.09 oz.) [LE]
  • Courting Chic is described as a deep berry red with gold sparkles.
Courting Chic is a medium-dark, sheer red with cool undertones and gold shimmer. It applied smoothly, mostly even and semi-opaque. The color lightly settled into the fine lines of my lips. This shade would benefit best by being paired over other lip products and lasted +3.5 hours before fading. (4/5)

Pressed Pigment $19.50 USD / $25 CAD (0.04 oz.) [LE]
  •  Enchantment is described as a violet with blue violet sparkle.
  •  Victorian Plum is described as a plum with violet pearl.
Enchantment is a dark, blackened navy with cool undertones and a fine, blue metallic finish. This pressed pigment performed similar to a regular, loose pigment. When used dry, it was sheer, sparkly and had quite a bit of fall out. When used wet, it was smooth, intensely pigmented but rougher around the edges making it more difficult to blend out. I did experience slight fall out during wear with both application methods. Enchantment lasted +9 hours before fading. (4/5)
Victorian Plum is a dark, blackened violet with cool undertones and a fine, purple metallic finish. This pressed pigment performed similar to a regular, loose pigment. When used dry, it was mostly opaque, pigmented and easy to blend out. When used wet, it was smooth, intensely pigmented but a little difficult to blend out. Again, I did experience slight fall out during wear with both application methods. Victorian Plum lasted +9 hours before fading. (5/5)


Fluidline $17.50 USD / $21 CAD (0.10 oz.) [LE]
  •  Dark Majesty is described as a black with black pearl.
Dark Majesty is a charcoal black with fine silver shimmer and a subtle pearl finish. The texture was creamy, glided-on easily and didn't pull or tug at the skin when applying. It applied semi-opaque but was buildable to a more opaque coverage. This liner lasted +8.5 hours before showing noticeable wear. (5/5)
