Review+Swatches - MAC Moody Blooms Collection

It’s been a bit since I wrote about any MAC products so here is a nice colorful collection, the Moody Blooms Collection.

What It Is: Exotic, night-blooming flowers with a hint of danger inspire a hothouse of seductive shades. Sensual colours shroud eyes in earthy metallic. Eye Shadows and lips suggest hidden motives with deep blue plum and dark berry hues of Sheen Supreme Lipstick. Bronze Powder Blush provides a final adrenaline surge before these beauties dissolve into the night.

Review+Swatches - Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic

In my continuing obsession with eyeliners, I bring you two from MAKE UP FOR EVER and their new Aqua Matic liners. Since the brand is a makeup artist’s go-to line, I expect a lot from it and have rarely been disappointed from the items.

Make-Up-For-Ever-Aqua-Matic-Waterproof-Glide-On-Eye-Shadow-in-I-30-and-I-22

Since temps are heating up, as the name hints at, these liners are able to lock onto lids. Each contains a combo of silica, oils, and polymers that creates a flexible film that’s able to hold up to sweating, heat, and even water. They truly don’t move after setting.

Shown here in I-30 – Iridescent Lime Green and I-22 – Iridescent Electric Blue

Choose from 10 shades with unique finishes for $21 @ sephora.com

Review+Swatches - Butter London Wink Cream Eye Shadows

Who isn’t into bright lip and nails these days? Pretty much all categories of makeup can be found in bright versions and BUTTER LONDON just put out a collection called the Lolly Brights Collection. While some are on the bright side like the Nail Lacquers, I found the Wink Cream Eye Shadows ($18 @ ulta.com and @ butterlondon.com) more on the pastel side of the spectrum. I’m not usually a fan of pastels but these might just change my mind. Click after to the jump to see why.

Review+Swatches - Jane Iredale Mystikol Powdered Eyeliner/Highlighter

Liquid eyeliners and pencil liners are fine but a lot of times but more times than not I find myself looking around my makeup table for a smudge brush to soften the look, especially for a daytime look. This JANE IREDALE Mystikol Powdered Eyeliner/Highlighter ($20 @ janeiredale.com and beauty.com) is a nice one to not only apply color but virtually eliminates the second step of blending it in.

Review+Swatches - OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencils

How many times have you met a makeup pencil that can be applied to the lips or eyes? Well 6 out of the 12 here can be. Meet OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS new category of makeup, Cosmetic Colour Pencils ($16 @ occmakeup.com and sephora.com). These are 100% vegan and made with micro-refined mineral pigments.

They’ve covered the basics with your neutrals (Trick, Pennyroyal, Sybil), were inspired by some of the Lip Tar best-sellers (Anime, Black Dahlia, NSFW) and then gave us some we’d only expect from OCC (Pool Boy, Hoochie, Grandma). And there is even a clear invisible liner (Anti-Feathered).
