MAC Antiquitease Color popped up in stores today and of course the Muse walked as fast as her little legs could carry her to get her haul of Antiquitease goodies!
The entire collection is quite lovely with very few misses and quite a few hits!
I ended up purchasing the lot of mineralized shadows duos, one lipglass, one lipstick, all the pigments, the new fluidline, and a plushlash!
The shadows are stunning and these are as great as the Flashtronic shadows (sorry I had a brain fart while filming the video and I had said the last shadow collection with mineralized shadows was Rushmetal! Apologies I had meant Flashtronic!).
Almost all of the shadows have a gorgeous bold silver veining that runs through the shadow and have quite a dose of shimmer. I’ve already applied some on my eye and that silver veining contains quite a healthy pop once your brush connects with it! Gorgeous!
Mi’ Lady appears to be my favorite of the bunch so far because of it’s ultra bold red and purple coloring. Yum! I’m eager to create a look with this! Don’t let the red fool you though as the color actually shows almost orange on the the eye! It’s very interesting color!
Family Silver is going to a be nice base shadow or highlighter for me as the colors are lighter in this shadow as compared to the others in this collection.
Silversmith and Engaging are both beautiful colors as well. Silversmith is a wonderful duo of silver and gold while Engaging has a very pretty peachy pink color and a bronze.
The only duo that has me wondering whether I am loving it or not is Earthly Riches. It’s a bit of a darker duo and I’m unsure how it’ll look but I grabbed it anyway at the risk of it selling out before I can make my mind up (I can always swap it off later if I hate it!).
The star of the lipglasses and the lipsticks were the too outrageously bold red colors offered which were Red Romp and Queen’s Sin. I’m not one for red lipstick but Queen’s Sin was calling my name when I laid eyes on it! It’s quite a nice shade of red and perfect for the Holiday Season! Royal Romp is going to look amazing over it! I was in high debate whether to grab the Royal Romp Lipglass because it reminded me so much of Boundless In3D lipgloss but turns out that Royal Romp is a more subdued maroon when compared to the brighter, truer red of Boundless!
The pigments are all quite nice and I’m loving Your Ladyship best as it reminds me of a beefed up Provence with tons more shimmer.
Gold Stroke is a nice brown with bits of gold swirled in. The website says it’s bits of red but I’m seeing gold. Sweet Sienna is a grey color with silver shimmer and again I have to disagree with the website as it says it’s a brown color with grey pearl but I don’t see any brown in it!
Finally I grabbed Uppity Fluidline which is gold in color. This will make a great base color and is perfect for the holidays and will look great combined with some of my other gold collections!
Overall, I’d say the collection is utterly wearable and very pretty! I’m loving all of it! I did skip on many of the lipglasses and lipsticks because they were just too nude in color for me so those in my opinion aren’t worth the purchase however everything else is a go and the Muse says get to your counter and grab some of this before it’s gone!
