MAC Cinderella: Coupe D'Chic, Little Black Bow and Lightly Tauped Swatches, Review

 MAC Coupe D'Chic Iridescent Pressed Powder, Lightly Tauped Studio Eye Gloss, Little Black Bow Fluidline






So it's finally here: MAC comes up with a dreamy, perfect-for-a-princess makeup collection inspired by the upcoming film, Disney's Cinderella.  This is definitely not a massive collection, but the overall color palette consists of soft, neutral, utterly wearable colors fit for a royal.

I got three of the items (with one more coming soon), and here are some of my thoughts on them.

 MAC Coupe D'Chic Iridescent Pressed Powder is described as a light golden peach with gold shimmer.  I love this, and I think this is one of my favorite pressed powders from MAC.  It has gold reflects that give warmth to the skin and gives a really nice lift to the complexion.  I like wearing this on the cheekbones as well as the apples of the cheeks.  It kinda serves as a very subtle highlighter.

MAC Fluidline in Little Black Bow, MAC Studio Eye Gloss in Lightly Tauped



MAC Studio Eye Gloss in Lightly Tauped has the consistency of a lipglass.  It is SUPER tacky, and not my favorite feeling on the eyes.  It is a nice taupe color, but WAY too sticky.  Not a fan of this!

MAC Fluidline in Little Black Bow is a grey with silver pearl.  I normally don't wear gel liners in any color other than black, but this is a nice accent color.  I can apply Little Black Bow above my black gel liner just to have a little pop of grey shimmer on the lashline.

All in all, I am liking the products from the MAC Cinderella collection that I've tried, with the exception of the Studio Eye Gloss.  I just can't get over the tacky feeling.

I will be coming up with a look using these products, so stay tuned!

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick and Lipglass Swatches, Review

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick

This 2015, MAC Viva Glam campaign collaborates with Miley Cyrus, coming up with a hot pink lipstick in the amplified formula, as well as a super glittery hot pink lipglass to benefit the MAC AIDS fund.  I was honestly a bit disappointed when I first saw the colors.  I thought I wouldn't be able to pull off the hot pink lipstick.  I was also scared that the uber-glittery lipglass would just be a glittery hot mess on my lips without any pigment whatsoever.

Nonetheless, I was excited to try the lipstick and lipglass combination.  I was actually surprised with how it looked on me.
