Sneak Peek: MAC’s Styleseeker collection

Hi Glamifys,

There is a new MAC collection being launched at Raffles City Shopping Centre (and I assume at the other MAC outlets too). Styleseeker reminds me of the African tribes, the desert and the rustic clothing of that area.

FINALLY! A COLLECTION THAT LOOKS BEST ON MEDIUM AND DARK (and I mean VERY DARK) SKIN TONES!!!

Mostly red/brick browns, gold, shades of taupe and pinkish/burgundy hues. I did not get the exact names or prices although I think the eye shadow duo cost SGD 43.

Comes with:

– 3 nail polishes. Nothing that caught my eye as the colours were a little sedated.

– 4 lip glosses which is pretty although not very pigmented.

– 5 lipsticks of which 3 are more neutral shades suitable for day to day use. The other 2 are bright red. Pretty but more evenings.

– 4 Fluidlines. These are eye liners. I wish there were paint pots too but too bad.. All 4 were eyeliners in black, burgundy, green and brown.

– 4 eyeshadow duos. Pigmented and very pretty. Accidentally deleted the picture where I had swatches on.

(top left) The shimmery golden and sheen flesh colour is CULTURIZED. The gold reminded me of one of the colours from the naked 1 palette.

(top right) brick red sheen & shimmery brownish red. This duo was very unique. The colours are deep and would probably look really beautiful on someone who is a little darker. ON THE HUNT is probably something I would consider buying.

(bottom left) MARCHE AUX PUCES is another one that is absolutely gorgeous. There is a slight shimmery burnt orange colour. Just like the sunset paired with a more chocolaty brown. Would be great for olive skin tones.

(bottom right) WHIMS & FANCIES shimmery taupe with very dark brown. The shimmery taupe is a tad darker than Urban Decay’s sin. Probably a duo that you can give a miss since the colours are easily duped.

– 3 face powders… too die for…. Haha

there is a red blusher which makes me envious of those with really dark skin because this would look so perfect. Pigmented, so remember to tap a lot off your brush.

Another one is a light peachy/beige blusher.. Didn’t come off very well on my skin. I am an NC 30-35. the colour just drowned into my skin tone. But it look really nice and soft on a fair Chinese lady when I was at the counter.

The middle one is something I would like to purchase! WORLDLY WEALTH. It reminds me of NARS LAGUNA but with a slight shimmer. I absolutely hate the shimmery bronzers such as the one from Urban decay. If you have medium skin like me, you would most probably purchase bronzer to contour rather than trying to fake a tan. So having a near matte bronzer is perfect. Worldly wealth’s shimmer is a little chunkier compared to urban decay so you can easily swipe off the glitter bits with a brush if you want it a little more matte. Brownish with a slight reddish hue would be awesome on medium skin tones.

Have a great weekend Glamifys!

Cheers,
