My Thoughts: MAC Le Disko Eyeshadows

June 23, 2015

MAC Le Disko eyeshadow 01I picked up a few Dazzleshadow eyeshadows from the MAC Le Disko collection. At $20 each, I thought it worth spending a few minutes discussing these somewhat unique shadows. Although NARS has brought us a few shades with a similar multi-dimensional qualities, there are few other products out there like these. MAC Le Disko is currently available at Nordstrom, Macy’s, Bloomingdales, and other MAC sources.

MAC’s Le Disko eyeshadows have an insane amount of duochrome, sparkle, and a widely different look depending on the technique, base, and brush used. Really, the duo chrome effect is strong with these, my friends.  As you move your eyes in the light, these will give you a stunning variation. These are challenging eyeshadows to work with, but really crazy beautiful. If you’ve got some experience, patience and decent tools, I’d prepare to pick up at least two or three. Here are the shades that I got.

Mac Huggables for Summer 2015

June 16, 2015

Mac Huggable Summer '15

As you’ve probably heard, MAC Huggables are back for Summer 2015. With the first round, I did some major purchasing because I loved the formulas and colors (my original post on these is here).  I continue to use the colors from that former batch, as I loved the color selection and moisturizing feel. I was beyond excited to see these return for a summer round. These are currently available at Nordstrom, Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Selfridges UK and other MAC sources.

Mac Huggables Summer 15c

Although I made two trips to my local MAC counter to see this newest release, in truth I find this summer’s version less enthralling in terms of the color choices. I started with a purchase of three–red Flaming Lips, peach Soft Talkin’, and neutral pink I’m In. Although the formula, texture, and overall moisturizing properties of the formula hasn’t changed and is equally wonderful, I found that there is only one color from this batch that I truly love–that is, the light pink I’m InFor some reason (I’ll speculate on this in a bit), this year’s color choices were a little “off” for me–even the sheer red Flaming Lips seemed to clash with my natural mauve lip tone. I think that the reason is that the colors from this summer’s release are very one-note. Sometimes a complex color that is a mix of warm and cools can work on many different skin tones and colors. These colors seem a bit simpler in tone–they will either work for you perfectly and harmoniously, or they won’t.

I’m In, on the left, seems to be the perfect natural grab-and-go color for me. I purchased three of I’m In to wear throughout the year. Although the other colors are wearable, and I’ll get plenty of use out of them, they just aren’t as flattering as I’d like. Continue Reading
