MAC Suite Array and MAC CremeSheen First Impressions

Picture+057

Well, that was a disappointment!

I’m pretty disappointed in both MAC Suite Array and MAC Cremesheen sadly but I guess it’s good because it leaves me money to indulge in the Ungaro goodies.

Although MAC Suite Array gets major props for it’s uber cute packaging it definitely fails in the way of finish, texture, and formula. The shadows feel awful chalky, sheer, and difficult to blend! Yuk! The Muse no likey the texture at all! These are a semi-matte with a pearl finish which is slightly shimmery but it still couldn’t redeem itself in my eyes even with that tiny amount of shimmer thrown in, although I did simply adored how cute the size and style of the palette was. The palettes are teeny tiny and slide open to reveal the two shades. I found it interesting the shadows aren’t the same size, the left hand side is about half the size of the right hand color. I guess this implies one should be used as a liner or contrasting shade while the large size should be used as a base or main shadow color. I did purchase one which was Shallow V. Deep but I’m seriously thinking of returning it because I’m unsure if I’ll ever make proper of use of it due to the cruddy formula!

The star of the show as far as MAC Suite Array goes are definately the new Pearlglide Eyeliners which come in some seriously stunning shades. I did want to indulge in all of these but I decided I really didn’t need a whole wardrobe of liners when I have the new Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Sets coming my way shortly so I opped out and decided it would be best to skip. However, I do recommend snapping up some of these liners as the colors are truly outstanding!

As for MAC Cremesheen I wasn’t so thrilled to begin with about this release so I’m not disappointed in anyway, shape, or form. The colors are nice but nothing particularly special and I ended up with one color instead of the three I was considering. I purhcased Speak Louder which is a pink poppy shade that’s very flattering. You don’t have to get too crazy with these as they are part of the permanent line and are not LE so even if you don’t indulge now you can always come back for them later!

All in all it was a bit of a bust for me tonight but at least I came out all the richer for it!

How about you?

Haul anything?

Love these collections?

Feeling as meh about them as the Muse?

Do share, I’m super curious what you thought about the two!

P.S. I’ve been utilizing my iPhone to moblog here and there and I really wanted to capture some of these collections and post it here but sadly the MA’s get mighty pissed when you’re snapping pics and swatching so I didn’t really get many pictures! Sorry guys! I tried but when you have MA’s breathing down your back in anger all you want to do is run and hide! I do kinda understand why they don’t like people digging around with their fingers in pots of color and swatching…kinda ruins the product and makes a mess so I can relate to how they feel!

MAC Suite Array

SUITEARRAY COL

Ugh I can’t keep up! MAC Suite Array is live on the MAC website as of yesterday and available at your local counter Thursday!

I feel my wallet cringing in agony!

Cute little chicklets of color to create a contrasting eye look with two matte shades that you can use to accent, define, and shade eyes.

I’ve never seen a duo release from MAC quite like these although the semi-matte finish does scare me slightly I do have my eye on a few of the shades in particular the aqua looks mighty fitting for a Muse!

Want these?

Love ‘em?

What’s on your MAC wish list this week?
