At first glance the MAC & Micky Contractor Collection does so deceive. I was thinking, “eh, probably nothing here to see…”
However, there is a gem or two in the rough even if you think the collection might not be suited to your skin tone. The shadows are all wearable in my opinion and one are two are really keepers, the fluidlines will easily be a must have if you’re a fan since the colors are stunning gem shades, and believe it or not the concealers in the lighter ranges might work well if you prefer a more lighter concealer (I always go lighter with my concealer).
Obviously MAC is gearing the collection towards a specific skin type so not everyone will be able to take advantage of some of the base options in this collection however the color products are definitely a go particularly if you like nudes (the lipstick shades are all very nude-ish and beige) or bolder shades (the shadows are all extra bold).
Let’s have a look at some swatches.
Don’t quote me on exact times and dates but Mally will be on QVC a few times over the next few days so you might wanna check her out to see if you can grab her sold out Starlight Deluxe Eyeliner Library. I’m not sure if she will have it on and available but it might be worth a Tivo.
Here’s my thoughts on it!
I’ve been mucking around with MAC Stylishly Yours a little bit today. Out of MAC’s three upcoming color collections, this is probably the one I was the least excited about even though I tend to love bolder shades of color. With so many color stories coming out at one time I’m leaning towards loving on Peacocky and Cham Pale the most at this point.
How about you?
I only have two pieces from this collection to share but let’s have a peek anyway.
Ahh gold makeup for the holidays as traditional as mistletoe, wrapped presents, and figgy pudding. We didn’t get alot of gold this year did we? Do you miss it? I thought I didn’t since we got a healthy injection of it the past few years but I’m a sucker for tradition and now that I look back on Holiday 2010 I can’t help but feel, maybe, I do miss a bit of gold in my Holiday looks!
Never fear, Avon is here with its 24K Glamour Holiday Collection that includes eyeshadow palettes, eyeliner, mascara, and glosses that contain a healthy injection of gloss. Beauty budget types will love these prices.
Check out my review below!
Anyone successful scoring some of the Hard Candy Holiday Gift Sets? Lots of endless, useless, and torturing steps through the Evil Empire but no luck here.
Good news though, some are available on Walmart’s website and have free shipping if it appeals!
I did get a Hard Candy Bad Girl Next Door Set to try out which should appeal to those wanting a quickie, budget smoked out eye look!
