MAC Enchanted Eve Collection | Lip Bags

MAC released their newest collection Enchanted Eve on October 18, 2015 online and October 22, 2015 in-stores. The collection featured a series of different eye and lip sets, as well as brush sets and smaller palettes. Most of the products feature special edition turquoise, purple and blue metallic packaging—including the pouches and bags.

"For an evening of endless possibilities, no rendezvous is complete without Enchanted Eve Lip & Eye Bags, coordinated kits for eyes and lips in stylish little clutches. The Lip Bags feature ever-so-chic shades of Lipstick, Lipglass and Lip Pencil in three classic colour palettes: pink, nude and red, while the Eye Bags provide never-ending options for eyes in plum, brown and black hues of Pro Longwear Paint Pot, False Lashes and Fluidline, along with a double-ended brush. Pro Discount is not available."
Here's what I picked up from the collection...


Enchanted Eve Lip Bag: Pink $39.50 USD / $47.50 CAD (0.31 oz.) [Limited Edition]
  •  Goodbye Kiss is described as a cool mid-tone pink. [Amplified] [LE]
  •  Frozen Dream is described as a medium pink rose. (Lipglass) [LE]
  •  Just Wonderful is described as a dirty mauve. (Lip Pencil) [LE]

Goodbye Kiss is a light-medium pink with cool undertones and a creamy, luminous finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and had nice color payoff. The product liked to skip in some areas, especially on chapped lips, but this was only really noticeable on closer inspection. Goodbye Kiss wore well for +5 hours before fading. (4/5)
* Clinique Wow Pop was brighter, more pink.

Frozen Dream is a light, transparent pink with very fine pink and white micro-sparkle, cool undertones and glossy finish. The base color of this gloss was incredibly sheer, but the shimmer itself was noticeable on the lips. The consistency wasn't overly sticky or tacky, but became thicker as the product started to wear away. Frozen Dream lasted +4.5 hours before fading. (5/5)

Just Wonderful is a medium, plum red with neutral undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was quite stiff, which made it difficult to apply evenly and smoothly across lips—I found wearing the pencil down and resharpening before use helped. Just Wonderful lasted +7 hours when worn alone and felt drying. (4/5)

Enchanted Eve Lip Bag: Red $39.50 USD / $47.50 CAD (0.31 oz.) [Limited Edition]
  •  Pretty Irresistible is described as a bright raspberry red. [Matte] [LE]
  •  A Favourite Flame is described as a vibrant deep raspberry. (Lipglass) [LE]
  •  Beet is described as a vivid reddish pink. (Lip Pencil) [P]

Pretty Irresistible is a medium, brightened red with hints of magenta, cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and mostly opaque. It didn't feather or bleed over time and despite having good color payoff, I felt it was only buildable to a certain degree. Pretty Irresistible lasted +6 hours and left behind a stain. (4/5)
* Kat Von D Bachelorette was lighter, warmer, more coral.

A Favourite Flame is a medium-dark red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. This shade had sheer pigmentation and a very fine shimmer mixed in that was noticeable on closer inspection. The color ever-so-lightly settled into lip lines over time due to the creamier consistency and it did bleed when paired over other products. A Favourite Flame wore well alone for +4 hours before fading. (4/5)

Beet is a medium-dark, berry red with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade had a stiff consistency, but glided on easily once the pencil had been worn down a little. The color liked to grab onto imperfections and dry patches of the lips, but it helped lip sticks wear, apply and last better. Beet lasted +7.5 hours when worn alone and left behind a stain. (4/5)


Overall, these were some great sets! The products featured pair nicely together to create a lip combo, the make up clutch is high quality, durable and generously sized and most of all, you're getting a great value—you're getting 3, limited edition full sized products for $10 less than they would cost you individually! So, if you're interested in rocking a red, pink or nude lip this holiday season than these sets are worth checking out!

(Breaking it down: the Lip Pencils regularly retail for $16.50 USD ($19.50 CAD) for 0.05 oz, the Lipsticks regularly retail for $17 USD ($20 CAD) for 0.10 oz, and the Lipglass regularly retail for $15 USD ($18 CAD) for 0.17 oz, making this set a $48.50 USD ($57.50 CAD) value!)
