MAC PeaCocky Kissable Lipcolour MAC PeaCocky Mega Metal Shadow Review, Swatches, Photos

MAC debuts two new formulas with the Peacocky Collection. New Kissable Lipcolour and new Mega Metal Shadow each sport a brand new formula. Curious about ’em?

I was surprised upon first seeing the new Mega Metal Shadows at their size. These are the larger size of a Mineralize Shadow.

So what’s new about ’em?

Let’s see!

Well I dunno if I’d call them super new. I tried two and the texture and formula varied on both. They kinda remind me of Starflash for some reason but aren’t nearly as flaky or frosty. Texture is velvety smooth and blends decently however does have a bit of fall out. Seems the formula varied in my two shades. Pranice which is a champagne mauve comes across very frosty and chunky where as Unflappable a blackened purple has more of a semi-matte, satiny feel and finish. I can’t really get a vibe for what they are going for here since the formula jumps around so much. I’m curious how the other shades will swatch and apply.

Strangely enough the Kissable LipColours also jump around formula wise. At first try I loved Temper Tantra which MAC dubs a reddish brown but hey I’m just seeing a bit of a darker dusky peach on my lips. The formula reminds me of Korres Liquid Lipstick but runs a bit thicker and has a more hydrating feel and finish. I don’t love cream lipsticks and this is pretty much what Kissable LipColours are however I liked the formula on this color very much and felt it wore quite nicely without migrating around my mouth. I was even delighted with the cream finish of the product. Following up with the shade So Vain I started to change my mind as this had a drier texture and applied very patchy on my lips. The shade is a nude cream coral which I felt looked terribly unflattering on never mind the crummy formula that seemed to want to migrate all around my mouth.Β  Depending on color they seem to feel hydrating enough on my already dry lips and it goes without saying they are quite pigmented however the formula appears to vary in my test run.

I’m actually curious to try out more shades of both the Kissable LipColours and the Mega Metal Shadow to get a better feel for the formula.

Do you plan on hauling anything from MAC Peacocky?

Do share!

I’ll follow up with another review when the collection launches and I make some purchases!

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.

    This collection has interested me the most compared to Cham Pale and Stylishly Yours. I can’t wait for more swatches!

  • Kristen

    Only thing I am wanting is that Peacocky lipcolor. I have never seen anything like it ever.

  • Nia

    Love you Muse! πŸ™‚
    How was the smell with the lipsticks? Bad? Or nice Vanilla?

      • Nia

        Oh, at least consistency πŸ˜‰

        I am still very much looking forward to this collection, pigmented glosses? All for it. My list is huge! So I hope the colours I am interested in are the ones with the better consistency.
        Have to wait until February though πŸ™‚

    I’m curious about the coral lipstick because I do love coral shades for lips but they are hard to find…

  • Maggie

    I’m planning on getting the Peacocky lip color (just ’cause it’s so funky and interesting – don’t know that I’ll ever actually wear it, lol) and maaaayyybe Temper Tantra. The eyeshadows aren’t really doing anything for me. I’m curious to see the pigments and cream color bases in person – I’m not planning on getting any, but they might be awesomer in the flesh πŸ™‚

    • Maggie

      Woops, somehow I lost my train of thought and started talking about Stylishly Yours there πŸ˜› I’m awake, I swear!

  • Ludwig

    I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER NUDE GLOSS. REPEAT. I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER NUDE GLOSS. BUUUUTT Muse says its a coral nude which I don’t have so…… : D I have a problem. LOL Thanks for all the MAC swatches Muse!

    Hmm- I was disappointed when I found out the lippies were liquid lipsticks because liquid lippies and I don’t usually get along. I find them too high-maintenance because they transfer all over the place and I end up with color where I don’t want it, like around my mouth. I was excited anyway though and figured maybe I’d have better luck with these and now I’m not sure- I’d be afraid that the colors I’d pick would be like the one you didn’t have luck with. I wanted like..ALL of the shadows too but now I’m going to have to have to try to test run one before buying. That’s all good for my wallet but I was looking forward to treating

  • Phyrra

    I’m looking forward to checking out all the blues and teals, of course πŸ™‚
