MAC Irresistibly Charming Collection | Pigments and Glitter Sets


MAC released their newest collection Irresistibly Charming on October 27, 2015 online and October 29, 2015 in-stores. The collection featured a series of different lipgloss, patentpolish and pigment sets. The products feature special edition turquoise, purple and blue metallic packaging—including the hard-shell boxes they come housed in.

"Lose yourself in the magic of the evening, the unexpected awaits. Sparked by an Irresistibly Charming allure, mini kits of Cremesheen Glass and Dazzleglass, Patentpolish Lip Pencil, and Pigments and Glitters feature eye-catching hues that strut across the face in icy nudes, glitter-flecked purples, and fearless pinks and reds. The night is young. Anything can happen. Pro Discount is not available."
As most of you already know, pigments are such versatile products. They can be used with mixing mediums to create eyeliners and glosses, mixed to create nail polishes, applied dry or wet to intensify the color and finish—the possibilities are endless. The glitters included in the sets aren't safe for use in the eye area, so for anyone left wondering, you can always use them on other areas of the body, hair, nails, etc. as some examples!

Naked is a light beige with hints of peach, warm undertones and a pearl finish. The texture was finely-milled, soft and blended smoothly across the skin. When applied dry, it was quite weightless so it had difficulties adhering to the skin; when used wet, it was more opaque and had a nice, pearl sheen. Naked lasted +8 hours before fading. (4/5)

Blonde's Gold is a light-medium, sand gold with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was finely-milled, soft, smooth and easy to blend. When used dry, it was mostly opaque and prone to fall-out; used wet, it was more pigmented and had a stronger sheen. Blonde's Gold lasted +8.5 hours before fading. (5/5)

Out All Night is a medium-dark, brown gold with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. The texture was finely-milled, soft, smooth and easy to blend. When applied dry, it was opaque; used wet, it became liquid gold—incredibly smooth, richly pigmented and metallic. Out All Night lasted +9 hours before fading. (5/5)

Reflects Bronze is a brightened, orange bronze with warm undertones and a very fine texture. *This glitter is not safe for use in the eye area.

Warm Snow is a pale off-white with subtle warm undertones and a pearl finish. The texture was incredibly silky, finely-milled and blended out smoothly. Applied dry, this shade had great color payoff that could be sheered or built easily; and used wet, it had a much stronger, frosted sheen. Warm Snow lasted +9 hours before fading. (5/5)

Silver Fog is a medium silver with cool undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was soft, smooth and blended across the skin easily.

Pink Opal is a pale, opalescent white with warm undertones and a pearl finishThe texture was silky, finely-milled and blended out smoothly. Applied dry, this shade had good pigmentation that could be sheered or built; and applied wet, it had a more pink sheen. Pink Opal lasted +9 hours before fading. (5/5)

Kitschmas is a light pink lavender with neutral undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was quite chunky and more difficult to apply smoothly. When used dry, it required a bit of working into the skin to break the product down when used dry and was more prone to fallout. When used wet, it took on a much stronger, metallic finish. Kitschmas lasted +8.5 hours before fading. (4/5)

Rich Purple is a darkened, plum purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was incredibly soft, smooth and very finely-milled. It had nice color payoff and the pigmentation was buildable. Getting an even coverage was easy, but blending the product out evenly was a little tricky at times. Rich Purple lasted +8 hours before fading. (4/5) *This pigment is not safe for use in the lip area.

Fuchsia is a medium-dark, fuchsia purple with warm undertones and a chunky texture. *This glitter is not safe for use in the eye or lip area.

Overall, these were excellent pigment sets! While it was disappointing that this years included one less pigment compared to last years for the same cost, I appreciate that they didn't reuse shades. The smaller sizes can be more difficult to fit your brush into, but you're still getting a reasonable amount of product. Whether you're planning to gift these sets or pick them up for yourself, they're definitely worth checking out!
