New Collection: MAC - Chill

MAC - Chill: Ice the competition. The temperature drops, predictability plummets, but a new beauty barometer sets the tone with light snowflake lips, twinkle shimmer shades with opalescent pearl.

Cool neutral eyes suddenly combust, then go up in smoke, with new Penultimate eye liner for the deepest velvet black. New 41 Lash with criss-cross design for a luxe, longer look. Two Reflects Glitter for a limited time, a hot new cool. Just chill.

Lipglass ($14.50)
-Icescape - Sheer pale pink with pink pearl
-Naked Frost - Sheer taupe with silver pearl
-Frozen Dream - Sheer cool mid-tone pink with pearl
-Snowscene - Sheer white with multi-dimensional pearl

Eye Shadow ($14.50)
-Arctic Grey - Frosted mid-tone grey
-Wintersky - Frosty neutral mid-tone pink
-Apres-ski - Matte dark brownish grey
-Mont Black - Sparkly black with multi-dimensional pearl
-Vellum - Pale white duochrome with violet opalescent shimmer

I got Mont Black. I'm kind of obsessed with black eye shadow. I covet it. I can't have enough. I've tried many. My favorite is MAC Smoking (from Smoke Signal's Smoking Eyes Eyeshadow x 4) - black with gold (velvet.) I do use MAC Cloudburst - black with blue pearl (velvet) but am not super crazy about the blue pearl. Mont Black is a perfect addition. There's not a really much of a color to the pearl. Pigmentation is not the best. So basically if you all ready have a black that does the job, you can skip this, but it does provide a sparkly smokiness that might not always be available (but maybe it will be- doesn't say limited edition.)

Face Candy Grade: A

Penultimate Eye Liner ($16.50) - A liquid pen-style liner that provides the ultimate precise, bold line in a rich, deep carbon black shade. Goes on fluidly, in one steady stroke, to style any fashion of eye line.
-Rapidblack - True black

I was VERY excited to try this and I was not let down. First of all, the formula is light and smooth unlike MAC Liquidlast Liner, which I think is goopy and hard to work with. The pen tip is so teensy tiny, I ended up getting frustrated that the line is so fine (I do thick lines on top lids only.) Lasting power is good, after I put it on I ended up crying and most of it was still there. This was definitely the easiest pen style liner I've ever used. I'm happy to recommend it.

Face Candy Grade: A+

Glitter Reflects ($17.50)
-Transparent Teal - Sparkling white with turquoise
-Reflects Antique Gold - Sparkling taupe

I like Glitters because I think they're so versatile. Mix some with your nail polish, lip gloss or moisturizer to add a little kick. You can even put it in your hair. Reflects Antique Gold provides a subtle gold glow that I like more than the Bronze.

Face Candy Grade: B

I actually stopped a MAC Counter this past weekend to check out the new Chill Collection. I'm loving the eyeshadows and the lipglosses. My favorite shadows are Artic Grey and Mont Black.
