Pics, arm swatches and lip swatches of MAC Shiny Fairly Issues…in addition to commentary/ideas from the angle of a 40-something-year-old lady who loves MAC and make-up. ? Please observe, that is simply the make-up assortment, not the present units or kits. The entire assortment is LE and obtainable now at MAC counters and on-line. For those who’d wish to see the make-up in motion, try this publish, this publish and this publish. For reference, I’m an NC42.
For those who like shimmer, shine, frost, pearl and/or glitter, and also you’re cool with the truth that it’s already the vacations for make-up firms, this MAC vacation assortment is each shiny and fairly. It radiaties megawatts of luminescence. Of the 21 items, all that are bedecked/bedazzled in restricted version shiny silver packaging, just one has completely no shine to it — a scorching pink matte lipstick referred to as Each Cheeks ($19.50), which is beautiful, by the best way. It’s like a matte model of Present Orchid.
I suppose you possibly can additionally think about creamy beige-pink Babetown Lipstick ($19.50) as one thing apart from shiny, as a result of it isn’t as shiny as the opposite gadgets within the launch, however it’s technically a Cremesheen, so it’s nonetheless kinda shiny… It’s additionally the factor I’ve been sporting most from this whole assortment.
I do know, SHOCKING. Karen’s favourite factor is the impartial lipstick?!
That’s sarcasm in print, by the best way. ?
Be aware: Babetown isn’t a type of corpse-y pink beige colours. It’s mild (however not pastel), and I feel it’s beautiful layered on prime of the MAC Soar, Edge to Edge, Spice, Boldly Naked — the standard MAC liner suspects. It’s easy, opaque and doesn’t latch onto lip flakes, both.
However yeah, you higher be into glitter in case you’re gonna go large with this assortment, as a result of there’s SO MUCH GLITTER. All the Shiny Fairly Shadows ($21.50 every) are glittery (allegedly they’re a brand new method, however I feel they could be re-branded Pressed Pigments), the Dazzleliner liquid liners ($22 every) are glittery, and the Additional Dimension Skinfinish in Snowflushed ($35) is HELLA glittery — like, somebody might illuminate a disco get together utilizing the reflection off your face.
I occur to love glitter in managed/small doses, and I’m very specific in regards to the particulars of the glitter I wish to put on as a result of, as a non-21-year-old, I’ve pores.
I even have expertise traces.
And glitter amplifies these issues.
But I actually just like the Shiny Fairly Issues glitters. They’re — watch for it — wearable!
So what’s “wearable glitter”? Properly, I feel the flecks are high quality (however not essentially microscopic), and never like the large Skittle-sized items of glitter you utilize for face portray at a toddler’s celebration.
Additionally, IMO the glitter bits in “wearable glitter” aren’t all the very same form and measurement. They differ, owing to a better diploma of complexity and class…
Sure, I do know that’s taking glitter very severely. ?
By far, essentially the most attention-grabbing glitters on this assortment to me are the Shiny Fairly Shadows. They’re reasonably pigmented glitter shadows with a pearly base, and the glitter bits are all totally different styles and sizes. If you press the shadows in your lids both moist or dry — as a result of, let’s face it, utilizing a sweeping movement is simply gonna ship the stuff flying in every single place — they virtually appear like shattered glass glowing in daylight. Some flecks even appear like they’re floating above your pores and skin like pixie mud.
The long-wearing Dazzleliners (sparkly-er cousins of the MAC Liquidlast Liners) even have that shattered glass impact.
After which there’s Snowflushed, with its comparatively incognito gold, bronze and pink flecks of glitter (refined glitter is all the time a plus when you have a pore scenario).
Additionally, not one of the glosses really feel gritty, by the best way, in case you have been questioning.
The take-home dwelling message is that this: This can be a *very* glittery assortment, however a shocking quantity of it’s wearable, even for somebody older than 20. For those who’re into that, try the eyeshadows, the liner and the highlighters, which I feel are the standouts.
For those who’d like extra information about any of the gadgets within the assortment, let me know. Till then…VIVA LA GLITTER!
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
