I spent a good deal of Friday afternoon at the MAC store in Carnaby Street sipping hot chocolate (my first of the winter) and being taken through the latest MAC releases. Also though, I was fascinated (in a bad way) by the beetroot latte on offer – it smelled absolutely horrible! I could have got on board if it had been strawberry because it looked pretty enough. So, first up are these Supernatural Dazzle eye shadows.
They’re quite right to call them dazzling – the shine from these! Funnily enough, they’re not deep colours although they look so intense in the pots. You can build them up of course, but actually they’re more like a shine wash to go over other colours or for a bare lid with gleam which actually makes them rather more flexible. I’d definitely add a bit of this to a gloss to take it next level. I’ve washed all these over a matte brown and they look so good I can’t tell you. Each colour has a metallic base with differently coloured sparkles within.
This is a terrible swatch picture, I know but my camera really does hate sparkles but I think you get the general idea. I can either get it sharp and it kills the shimmer or get it blurry with shimmer and since I thought the shimmer is what this product is all about I’d keep it.. but I apologise for the blur. So bottom to top: I Like 2 Watch, Let’s Roll and Say It Isn’t So. I Like is brown with gold sparkle, Let’s Roll is red bronze with pinky red sparkle, and Say It Isn’t So is grey with pink sparkles. There are 12 shades – some new, some returning.
They’re £16.50 each launching next week. By the way, I’d love you to tell me what you think is wrong with MAC. It’s not doing that well according to the financial pages, so where are they going wrong?
