MAC Fabulous Felines Review and Swatches
Rawrrr! Crazy cat people take note, MAC Fabulous Felines launches next week (August 26th) or in some areas you have been privy to a pre-launch.
Anyone see this collection up close and personal yet? I got a few pieces to play with but haven’t seen it all as of yet. I called MAC today and asked if they are pre-launching and I got some dippy on the phone telling me, “Oh yeah, that collection is out in September…” Obviously she’s on another planet that takes one month to travel to…Jebus who educates these people. Please for the love of the Makeup Gods, don’t let your MAC stores or counters tell you this is launching in September….set your calenders for next week.
MAC Fabulous Felines launches in three collections that are themed around three different cats. Minds you, some of the looks MAC did with the collection aren’t cat-like but more along the lines of mimicking the colors of the different types of cats. So if you happen to be a crazy cat lady that’s expecting some sort of cat looks, you might be disappointed. I know cat people, I own a cat but I don’t consider myself a cat person, I like ragging on you weirdos. Kiddin’, kiddin’!
Moral of this story is here’s a little sneaky peek of MAC Fabulous Felines and later when the collection launches in September (HA, little joke there) ahem…next WEEK…I’ll show you the rest of my purchases.
A liquid liner is just a liquid liner…..
First off the new MAC Superslick Liquid Eye Liners are taking center stage with not only Fabulous Felines but also Venomous Villains. It’s a brand new product from MAC that features a precise point for application.
Fact is no matter how your dress this shiz up it’s still a liquid liner thus making it near impossible to apply if you don’t have super liquid liner skillz.
Like LiquidLast this stuff doesn’t budge. You can swim, you can travel to a tropical, humid climate, you can do battle at WWF, and your liner will last through it all like a pro and in most cases won’t come off until you scrub yourself raw with oil cleanser of some sort. Benefits of such a formula? All day wearin’ and tearin’. Party like it’s 1999 kids because it’s NOT moving!
But as I said if you’re skills aren’t so fabulous with liquid liner you may struggle some. Formula is a thin consistency with great pigmentation but in some cases you may have to go back over your line and reline due to the thinner formula of the product. Granted the awesome pointed felt tip makes application easier than a brush applicator but still liquid liners can be challenging to apply. I’ve been messing about with it and I can’t really get that winged look down pat but hey I never give up.
A few shades are releasing with MAC Fabulous Felines and they are 1. worth picking up because the colors are rather unique and different 2. worth getting if you’re a liquid liner kinda gal. I fall into the realms of 1. simply because some of the shades are unique enough for me to warrant a purchase. I know you’re wondering my logic at splurging when I can’t liquid line worth a damn. I figure when my skills do get better, I can whip out some great shades at some later date right?
I got my hands on Smoky Heir and Definitely Feline. Definitely Feline is a gorgeous golden brown with a shimmery look and Smoky Heir is a dark purple. With purple being so pop at the moment this might be worthy of a look at.
One of my favorite pieces I got to try out was the MAC Pigment in Lithe. I haven’t been this excited about piggies since Balloonacy. What a pretty shade and so wearable. It seems like something I’d use quite often so it might be one to double up on. It’s a warm golden nude that can work as an all over color wash it as a high brow highlighter. It’s very pretty!
Wildly Refined Lipglass should appeal to those who like warmer shades for lips. It’s a golden coral shade that’s quite pigmented, nothing opaque about this one.
And finally the MAC Palace Pedigree Eyeshadow Quad. This was my least favorite product since the shades are a tad too dank. I’ll definitely haul the other two palettes releasing as they seem more me.
Shades included are:
- Prized (yellow beige satin)
- Skintone 2 (dirty gold frost)
- Burmese Beauty (brown green lustre)
- Showstopper (blackened brown matte)
All the shades come across matte to me although they do have various finishes. Those with skill will be able to create an elegant look with this but I sadly lack the application techniques to get these formulas down correctly.
MAC Fabulous Felines is an exciting release and I’m looking forward to checking out the rest of it.
Hope you enjoyed the little sneak peek!
