MAC SHINY PRETTY THINGS COLOUR COLLECTION REVIEW & SWATCHES



Hey everyone,

It has been a long time that I kept delaying posting this collection as I was supposed to get a product from this collection last month. But sadly I haven't, the seller from whom I ordered failed terribly to send me the product on time and they cancel my order in a very suspicious way. As I endorsed this seller in past so today I am definitely going to share her page name as I know many of you follow and do order from her page. Her page name is MAKEUPBITTEN, so if you are ordering from her page be ready to get it canceled or be ready for any kind of situation. She refunded my money so there is no point of accusing her publicly but I just wanted my reader to know the reason behind delaying the post. Anyways let's move on...I guess my every mac collection comes with a story itself...LOL



So MAC SHINY PRETTY THINGS COLOR COLLECTION is the collection that launched the last year 2018 during the holiday. And the entire collection(almost everything) launched in NYKAA.  I managed to grab a few products from time to time and complete this collection. Mac always launches a huge number of products during the holidays. This time it was no less...they launched many products, starting from single lipsticks, eyeshadows, there were some sets too.

WHAT DID  I GRABBED FROM THE COLLECTION?


EYESHADOWS, LIPSTICKS, FACE PALETTE, RUBY WOO SET.
Now let's start with one by one.

EYESHADOWS:-

The silver packaging of the eyeshadows with transparent lid looks so "shiny" and "pretty" indeed. The lid close with a click sound.

Price:- Rs.1900/- each and I grabbed both of them from nykaa.

The eyeshadows in this collection were singles and they were super glittery. In short the eyeshadows, I picked have blinding kind of metallic finish in it. The eyeshadows should be applied in a pressing motion to avoid fallouts and to get maximum coverage. The texture of these eyeshadows are pretty soft and they are not pressed on kind off so definitely these are unique eyeshadows.

I picked two shades from 5 eyeshadows in this collection.

  • JUST CHILLING:-MAC Just Chilling is a cool silver with a glitter finish. This shade has such a beautiful shine and it is not pressed on glitter. This shade is very unique and just perfect for the party.
  • MAKE A WISH:- MAC Make a Wish is a warm green with a glitter finish. This shade needs 2-3 layers to get that maximum coverage.






LIPSTICKS:-
Being a lipstick lover I was eyeing on these lipsticks from a long time. And once it launched in nykaa I immediately grabbed them. The lipsticks come in silver shiny packaging which looks almost the same as BROOKE CANDY COLLECTION (https://www.makeupandbeautty.com/2016/08/reviews-photos-swatches-of-mac-x-brooke.html)

Price:- Rs.1800/- each and I grabbed them from nykaa.

The texture of both lipsticks are matte and they have that signature vanilla fragrance in it.

  • BOTH CHEEKS:- MAC Both Cheeks is a cool fuchsia with a matte finish. It has a blue undertone and so the shade might look little neon on deeper skin tones. The shade will look good on fair to medium skin tones. This lipstick has medium coverage that needs 2-3 swipes to get maximum coverage on lips.
  • STRAIGHT FIRE:- MAC Straight Fire is a cool red with a metallic finish. Now, this is definitely a unique launch by mac. Now, this is a matte lipstick with a metallic finish which is for the first time Mac launched. I wish they make this unique lipstick as a permanent one. The lipstick has a metallic sheen which I just love it. The application of this lipstick is even and it is a versatile shade which will look good across all skin tones. The lipstick STRAIGHT FIRE glides more easily on my lips and more pigmented than BOTH CHEEKS. This one is my favorite lipstick among two.

I bought this face palette from an Instagram seller "the_makeup_house" in Rs.3900/-.  


The palette comes in two shade light /fair and medium/deep. I picked the shade "medium/deep" as it is more suitable on Indian skin tones.
This palette never launched in India. I wonder why Mac does this to us :(

The face palette comes in a sturdy case. The beautiful metallic pink wrapped on the palette. The palette comes with a mirror in it. It has a highlighter, blush and a bronzer. The highlighter has a bow design in it while the bronzer has a ribbon band in it with the name "MAC" impression in it.
The self-design are deeply pressed imprint in the palette and so they just don't vanish by simply brushing the first layer of it for which I am very happy as I love the design and I hate to ruin it. The overall palette is definitely gorgeous and so luxe.

MY EXPERIENCE:-

All the 3 shades are quite pigmented. The texture is soft and easily blendable. The highlighter is damn pigmented and it is buildable one. The blush is a beautiful pinky copper shade which gives a natural pink glow on my skin tone. The bronzer should use light handed else one might end up putting a lot. The highlighter is just perfect for all skin tone and it doesn't enhance my skin texture or pore. The staying power of this blush highlighter and bronzer are approx 5-6 hours on hot and sweaty summers.
The entire face palette is just perfect for Indian skin tone. And if you want to grab this palette then definitely checkout with the Instagram seller page whose name I mentioned above as she has this palette in stock till now. :)












MAC SHINY PRETTY THINGS ALL STARS KIT /RUBY WOO

A kit featuring mini versions of Prep + Prime Fix+, In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara and Lipstick in Ruby Woo. $34 value.

The set consists of three minis product:


  • RUBY WOO MINI LIPSTICK
  • PREP+ PRIME FIX+ MINI
  • EXTREME DIMENSION 3D BLACK LASH MASCARA MINI

The reason for collecting this set from abroad is Mac was giving a full-size lipstick MOXIE free with this set. And this set was in discount and so I  grabbed it in Rs.2300/- with a free lipstick ordering it from an Instagram seller "beauty_bayed".

Now Mac ruby woo is a cult shade we all know and it need no more reviewing or detailing. But still, who are not aware of this shade let me tell you MAC Ruby Woo is a cool red with a matte finish that is permanent in Mac cosmetics matte lipstick line. A versatile red shade which will look good across all complexion. There was a time where no shade match MAC RUBY WOO  but nowadays there are many shades that match with MAC RUBY WOO.

DUPE OF RUBY WOO:- Close dupe is WET N WILD CATSUIT LIPSTICK MISSY AND FIERCE.





Coming to
PREP+ PRIME FIX+ it is another famous setting spray that most people know about it now. It comes in dewy and matte range. This set has the dewy one which is perfect for summers to make your makeup looks glowy.

And coming to
EXTREME DIMENSION 3D BLACK LASH MASCARA , it is an awesome mascara which is clumps free and it lengthens my thin lashes. Mac mascaras is expensive but they are really good. I never bought any mascara before from Mac as they are too costly but with this set, I got an opportunity to try out this mascara. 
The mascara wand is pretty thin for which it is very easy to apply on lower lashes. The mascara lengthens my lashes giving it a natural volume look.

Overall I love the set as it is just perfect for gifting to makeup lovers or to yourself as you get to try 3 famous products of mac at a reasonable price.






So, that is a long post indeed and I hope you enjoyed reading it. See you in my next post.
Love Sammy :*
