My pals at essence cosmetics have given me a challenge:…
Last week, you got an overview of the MAC x Julia Petit collection. Today, you get a sneak preview of two (of three) eyeshadow duos from the collection, both with limited edition shades.
SAGU DUO EYESHADOW
Druzy – dirty mauvy purple (Lustre)
Black Plum – deep blackened plum (Matte)
When swatching, I noticed that Druzy was a bit “loose” feeling and there was some fallout. Black Plum seemed very pigmented and buttery.
THOUGHTS: I’m on the fence on this one. I like Black Plum enough but Druzy wasn’t a shade I would use a lot.
Mumu has a gorgeous texture and is very pigmented and soft. Noite on the other hand was dry and rough. I’ve used lots of shimmers and lustres and this was just a sub-par formula (and you know I love my MAC shadows).
Noite on the lid, it took me forever to build up the colour and the glitter kept floating everywhere, much like Mineralize shadows. I can only assume this performs better as a wet shadow, although this was never mentioned in the press materials. I also used Druzy from the other duo in the tearduct. It’s a really nice glittery highlight shade.
THOUGHTS: I prefer this colour combo over the first one as I think it is more versatile, but the texture of Noite is just not good.
Face Atelier Foundation (as always)
Clarins Lip Comfort Oil
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
Anastasia Medium Brown Brow Pencil
Illamasqua Motto Brow Powder
Although I’m not very impressed with the shadows, I still plan to grab the Lustre Drops and lipsticks on March 19!
