MAC Heavenly Creature: Look Part 1.

100_3599

I am a sucker for MAC’s Mineralize eyeshadows and blushes. It must be the swirls, because when they come out, I automatically want them. So today I did a look with two of the eye colors and I will be doing another one or two the next few days. Are these worth the cost? Are they better than the usual MAC Mineralize shadows? Let’s see…

For this look I wanted a light, summery look so I took these two shadows: Magnetic Attraction (burgundy swirled with gold) and Invincible Light (lavender swirled with gold and white). Magnetic Attraction was used in the crease, in the outer edge of the lid and underneath the eye. Invincible Light was used on the lid and under the brow. The new Zoom Lash in Plum Reserve was used on the lashes. I also wanted a nice purple liquid liner, but MAC doesn’t have one, so I used Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Liner in 8 (shimmery purple).

For this look the blushes in Heavely Creature didn’t seem appropriate, so I used Launch Away! from Fleet Fast. It is a matte light, delicate peach in the pan but goes on a very vivid peach. Lips are Celestial Kiss Cremesheen Glass (light nude peach with a hint of shimmer).

Okay, down to business. As usual the darker mineralized shadows have more pigment as far as I can tell. I liked that these are swirled instead of having the pigments just willy-nilly. When I put my brush through and then onto my lid, I was able to get a beautiful burgundy gold shimmer onto the eye that I thought looked unusual. When I used the lighter color, Invincible Light, I found that the colors muddied and it came out a whitish tone without much lavender there. That upset me considering the majority of the shadow is lavender. In the end, the colors on my eyes look peachy and creamy white. Not at all what they look like in pan, right?

The cremesheen glass is nice. It has good pigmentation and stickiness, making it last a good while. Like with most lipglosses, what you see IS what you get.

Tomorrow I will do another look and again focus on pigmentation, payoff and general worthiness. So far, NOT so good. I would love to hear comments from you if you have purchased them or what you think in general on this look.
