Forgotten Collections: MAC Starflash Review and Swatches

Well, gee I should be shot for not reviewing MAC Starflash sooner as it was a rather great selection of awesome shadows.

As you already know by now the MAC Starflash shadows ere definately something to grab up and stash away. The texture is smooth, creamy, shimmery with the feel of velvet and the glide of a cream these were a hit with MAC fans everywhere.

I didn’t indulge in all the shades but I got the four that appealed to me most. I guess I’m kinda hit a low spot with MAC lately so I’ve been a bit more reserved with the items I pick up. In this case the four shadows that appealed to most were the following:

  • Grand Entrance-Peachy, Frosty Beige
  • Talent Pool-Shimmering Aqua
  • Dreamcatcher-Shimmering Gold
  • Bold and Brazen-Frosty, shimmering copper

The best part of Starflash is the ability to build color. Those who are scared of intensely pigmented shadows can go for a light all over color wash when using Starflash or build up color for a popping, pigmented look. The choice of how you use these is entirely up to you! These blend like an absolutely dream and offer a wonderful shimmery finish.

If you haven’t already, MAC Starflash is definately worth taking a look at! The Muse Approves these for purchase!

Loves ’em!

Did you grab some MAC Starflash?

Loved ’em?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I only bought the Mystery pencil from the Starflash collection. I might go and get the Raven pencil at some point.I wasn’t digging this collection this much because I was more excited for Cult of Cherry.

  • the Muse

    hey mc!

    I had the pencils already so I didn’t indulge. These are worth a real look the time I was excited about Cult of the Cherry too and left this in the dust but if you’re into shimmery shadows these are fab-u-lous!

  • Paopao

    I can't believe you didn't get Smoke&Diamonds and/or Top Hat e/s. They're great great shadows!!!

  • the Muse

    hi pao pao!

    Stop! lol! Now you’re creating evil lemmings šŸ™‚

    I guess I gotta go check ’em out again hehe! I was being reserved b/c I did super indulgence with CoC!

  • Laura

    The only shadow I got was Smoke&Diamonds,
    as I have similar colours already to the others.
    I do wish I was rich so I could have got them all, I love the texture.

  • the Muse

    i think I need smoke and diamonds too now šŸ™‚

    LOL totally can relate, wish I was rich too! We need to win the lotto šŸ˜‰

    I’m confused. I just bought Bold and Brazen unboxed on ACW for 12.99, but there was one for 14.99 with box. Did B&B just come out with the Starflash collection with the special texture?

    • the Muse

      Hi Promise I’m not sure what ACW is doing price wise with the shadow, perhaps contact them and ask? maybe b/c one is boxed and the other not? Bold and Brazen was released with Starflash.
