More holiday goodies are coming from MAC Cosmetics, and this…
The packaging reminds me of desert sunsets in Arizona. It mixes bright reddish neon with turquoise in an aztec-style pattern.
Out of the three bronzing powders in this collection, Firebrush is the only new release.
Firebrush is a reddish bronze with golden sparkle. The compact has a mirror, making it perfect to bring with you for a touch of shimmer and sun on-the-go.
This powder does look quite warm in the pan, but it leaves the most gorgeous sheer bronzey gold shimmer. You can use this on your face as bronzer, on the lids as a gorgeous pop of shimmer or even over lipstick to add some heat!
Swatched 3x to show colour, this actually goes on sheer. Firebrush has some loose glitter particles which actually reflect light nicely on the skin.
I used Firebrush on my cheeks and over my nose and a bit on the top of my forehead here. It added a nice glow without looking too orange or overdone.
The five lipsticks in this collection all have the same patterned lipstick tube.
Painted Sunset is a bright orange-red in an amplified finish.
This leans more red than Neon Orange and isn’t as bright. But it is brighter (and obviously more glossy) than Scarlet Ibis.
The formula on MAC’s Amplified Cremes is amazing. They glide on very smooth, making lips look full and plump. And I have never experienced any feathering with these!
As much as I love a classic red, this orange-red is breathtaking. It pairs really well with the warm-toned bronzer.
(Eyes are a few random Coastal Scents Hot Pots that I found in my stash!)
