MAC is Beauty Collection


MAC released their newest collection MAC is Beauty on March 30, 2015 online and April 2, 2015 in-stores. The collection featured limited edition lipsticks, fluidlines, eye shadows, eye liners, cremesheen glasses, beauty powders, nail lacquers and brushes.

"No appointment required… Come in and indulge yourself in M∙A∙C Is Beauty: a world of pure, delicious vanity, where you can preen supreme to get that wow factor, emerging perfectly coiffed, polished and all glammed up. What’s wrong with being a little high-maintenance? Go from doll to diva in new hues of Eye Shadow, Cremesheen Glass, Lipstick, Nail Lacquer and sixteen shades of Fluidline."
Here's what I picked up from the collection...


Lipstick $16 USD / $19 CAD (0.10 oz.) [LE]
  •  Diva-ish is described as a intense fuchsia. [Amplified]

  •  Make Me Gorgeous is described as a intense coral pink. [Amplified]

  •  Reel Sexy is described as a bright coral. [Amplified]

  •  Silly is described as a bright white-pink. [Matte]
Diva-ish is a medium, pink fuchsia with warm undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and mostly opaque. I noticed the color seemed to grab and accentuate any dry flakes or imperfections on the lips. Diva-ish wore well for +4.5 hours and was a tad drying when worn. (4/5)
Make Me Gorgeous is a light-medium, bright coral with hints of pink, warm undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, fully opaque and had rich pigmentation. Make Me Gorgeous wore well for +5 hours before fading. (5/5)
Reel Sexy is a light-medium peach with hints of coral, warm undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly opaque and had good pigmentation. I noticed the color lightly settled into any fine lines which caused the color to look somewhat uneven and almost streaky at times. Reel Sexy wore well for +4.5 hours before fading. (4/5)
Silly is a light-medium, brightened pink with cool undertones and a satin matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, nicely opaque and had great pigmentation. I noticed the color lightly gravitated towards the fine lines of my lips over time, but didn't cause the color to look uneven. Silly wore well for +5 hours and was a tad drying when worn. (5/5) 

Fluidline $16 USD / $19 CAD (0.10 oz.)
  •  Blacktrack is described as a solid flat black. [P]

  •  Blue Peep is described as a bright flat teal. [P]

  •  Looking Good is described as a sparkly burgundy. [LE]

  •  Macroviolet is described as a sparkly purple. [P]

  •  Our Secret is described as a milk chocolate brown. [LE]

  •  Shade is described as a deep green. [P]

  •  Siahi is described as a deep ocean blue. [P]
Blacktrack is a dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. This shade dries to a completely flat matte and is mostly opaque in a single stroke and can easily be layered for a fully opaque coverage. Blacktrack wore well for +11 hours. (5/5)
Blue Peep is a medium, brightened blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade also dried to a flat matte finish and could be easily layered for a fully opaque coverage. Blue Peep wore well for +11 hours. (5/5) *This shade was previously released with the MAC x Philip Treacy Collection.
Looking Good is a medium-dark, burgundy with hints of copper, warm undertones and a sparkly finish. This shade had a slippery consistency which made it difficult to layer the product over itself as it would sheer the color out and look uneven. Looking Good had semi-decent pigmentation in a single stroke and wore well for +10 hours. (3/5)
Macroviolet is a medium-dark, purple burgundy with warm undertones and a pearl finish. This shade had less slippery consistency than most other shades and had richer, more opaque color payoff in a single swipe. Macroviolet wore well for +11 hours.(4/5) 
Our Secret is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a pearl finish. This shade had good pigmentation in a single swipe and could be built to a more opaque coverage. Our Secret wore well for +11 hours. (4/5)
Shade is a dark evergreen with hints of teal, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. This shade dried to a flat matte, but at times it almost appeared to be a pearl or satin finish. The color was buildable to a mostly opaque coverage, but was difficult at times to get an even application. Shade wore well for +10 hours. (4/5)
Siahi is a dark blue with hints of green, cool undertones and a pearl finish. This shade applied semi-opaque in a single stroke and even once the product had been built up. The sheerer nature of this particular shade caused it to appear almost patchy at times. Siahi wore well for +10 hours. (3/5) 

 Beauty Powder $26 USD / $31 CAD (0.35 oz.) [LE]
  •  Alpha Girl is described as a soft peachy pink w/ gold.

  •  Pearl Blossom is described as a light pink w/ silver pearl.
Alpha Girl is a light-medium coral with warm undertones and a subtle golden sheen. The texture was soft, smooth and very thin. The powder felt weightless and almost applied chalky before working the product into the skin. It had good pigmentation that was buildable and blended out somewhat easily on the skin. Depending on your complexion, this shade could be used as a blusher, highlighter or subtle flush of color. Alpha Girl lasted +8 hours before fading. (4/5)
Pearl Blossom is a light-medium pink with cool undertones and a soft, silver sheen. The texture was soft, smooth and thinner than your average powder. It was easy to pick up with a brush and control the amount of sheen and color being applied. This shade had good, sheer pigmentation and didn't emphasize pores or imperfections. Pearl Blossom wore well for +8.5 hours. (5/5)
