MAC Early Buzz - News on Products for 2013 - Page 46

I really like those sorts of products, but I don't want to be shelling out cash for every variety, y'know? I'll probably just end up purchasing 2 or 3 unless I absolutely adore any others.

Also, how do you prefer using them? As a highlighter? A setting powder? Or perhaps an overall shimmery finish?

I'm personally not a fan of the pearlmattes at all. They lack shimmer and seem to be more of an allover brightener, tho they do have a bit of colour. So far the past PMs have been super light in colour. Until swatches are done of the archie PMs, and the new ones in The BB collection, we won't know the colour payoff as to whether they can be used as a blush or not.

BPs are always a good thing. They initially launched without shimmer at all, meant to be used all over and a glowing brightener. Within the last couple years the shimmer has increased, but not to the point of a glitterball. However, these more shimmery ones are meant to be highlights. They lack enough colour to be used as a blush tho.

MSFs are great well rounded products. Some contain enough colour to be used as a shimmery blush, some just as a highlight, and range from a nice sheen to chunkier shimmer. This is the only product that can also be used wet for a more intense effect. NOT for use all over the face tho (insert disco ball warning!).

The newest product that's out now is the ED skinfinish. It's a great highlighter with a soft-medium shimmer. More of a high sheen (in the middle of a BP and most MSFs). These can only be used dry (tho the ED shadows can be used wet or dry. The new ED blushes use is yet unknown).

It all depends on the effect you're going for.

HTHs!

Thanks for the helpful information!

 

I like shimmer, but there are times when it gets a little too much for me. Probably will go for the Pearlmattes and the new Extra Dimension products they're bringing out. Best of Both Worlds and whatnot. -shrug-

 

Last year, I bought a lot of lipsticks, but I have a feeling that this year will be the year I splurge on tons of face products. Especially with MAC's new offerings this year.

This is what UK chat said:

 

There are a few exclusive collections to Selfridges and Harrods etc.

 

They would not name them (like we would not know..). One is the Snake Collection but what else?

It was also in the Trimphant Face Kit. I just bought three more kits a few weeks ago in a CCO. It's an awesome kit as it also contains Melba and Peachtwist.

 

It was also in the Diana Ross collection in an awesome pale pink chrome packaging (but that is a loooong time ago).

Medgal07, just for you, honey [from a time period, where special packing was very classy] :)

 

post #1365 of 3881

ohhh that's nice.  now that's special packaging. 

post #1366 of 3881

I'm not sure where to put this, but I am looking for a gold highlighter for the brow bone.  I was watching house of lies and Nia Long is now on it.  Her makeup was gorgeous, she had a pink lip, gold highlight on her brow bone and I still can't figure out the blush.  But I figure I have enuff pink, but what that gold eyeshadow.    Any suggestions?  I guess I should go digging in my stash. LOL

Is that like a yellow gold? 

 

A nice yellow gold that I like is NYX's Vanilla Sky. Don't hear much about it but it's a really pretty shadow.

You're welcome. Here's another swatch.

 

 

Vanilla Sky at the bottom. And we know NYX is relatively cheap so if you don't like it, you won't have lost too much.

Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon Eyeshadows set my eyes on fire. I have 3 of the 8-color palettes and one or two of the 3-color. I thought maybe it was just one of the shadows, but they all make my eyes burn. YMMV, of course.

Wow. Sorry that happened to you. Vanilla Sky is a NYX shadow.
