Review: MAC - In The Groove

Every once in a while, don't you just want to let go, feel the flow, and get in the groove? Start with a little '70's Batik, add some '80s Neo-Mod Tie Dye fun, some Marrakech mystique, and you're feeling groovy! A modern, flowing and fabulous way with bold, kaleidoscopic color combined with boho charm and up-to-the-minute catwalk style. Nine new Mineralize Eye Shadows, six Cremesheen Lipsticks, six Cremesheen Glass, four Mineralize Skinfinish Powders, and five new Mineralize Blush Duos. Shadows are matte, sans glitter and in the trio format. Creamy lips play perfectly off Mineralize satin-smooth eyes. Turn on and groove out!

Lipstick ($14 US/$16.50 CDN) All Cremesheen and LE except for Creme de Nude.
-Call My Bluff- Mid-tone creamy coffee
-Jazzed- Bright coral pink
-Creme de Nude- Pale muted peach beige (permanent)
-I Like It Like That- Deep blue pink
-All Styled Up- Bright yellow pink
-Go For It- Mid-tone blue purple

Cremesheen Glass ($18 US/$21.50 CDN) All LE
-On the Scene- Light coral beige
-You’ve Got It- Dirty silver grey
-Going Casual- Sheer lilac
-Fashion Whim- Light beige
-Right Image- Mid-tone blue pink
-Chillin’- Light white blue

Mineralize Eye Shadow (Trio) ($19.50 US/$23.50 CDN) All LE
-Love to Love- Satin beige/Pearly Bronze/Satin Brown
These 3 colors worked together well. I actually kind of like it. For a matte neutral look it works. The beige is too chalky for me though.
face candy grade: B
-In the Groove- Satin green/Pearly burgundy/Satin coral
-Making It Easy- Satin red brown/Pearly beige rose/Satin dark beige
-Togetherness- Satin lavender/Pearly purple/Satin grey
-Style Influencer- Satin silver/Pearly deep blue/Satin deep mauve brown
-Soften the Mood- Satin light brown/Pearly rose/Satin light blue
I tried this one. The blue is very pale and chalky. The middle is an ok highlighter with a tinge of pink. The brown is medium, reminds me a bit of Ochre Style but a deeper matte brown. This was not really a winner with me.. The colors didn't work together, howveer the formula is a big improvement. The powders are soft and blendable.
face candy grade: C+

-Fresh & Easy- Satin pink/Pearly burgundy/Satin grey
-Calm, Cool, & Collected- Satin deep green/Pearly green/Satin beige
-Blue My Mind- Satin light blue/Pearly deep teal/Satin black

Powerpoint Eye Pencil ($14.50 US/$17.50 CDN) All permanent
-Stubborn Brown Deep Rich Brown
-Permaplum Deep plum with pink shimmer
-Navy Stain Royal blue with shimmer

Zoomlash ($13 US/$15.50 CDN) Permanent
-Zoomblack- Rich black

Mineralize Blush (Duo) ($23 US/$27.50 CDN) All LE
-Happy Together- Satin caramel/Pearly beige
-A Little Bit of Sunshine- Satin light brown/Pearly beige
-Hang Loose- Satin bright pink/Pearly lavender
-Band of Roses- Satin blue pink/Pearly light plum
-New Vibe- Satin deep rose/Pearly bronze

Mineralized Skinfinish ($28 US/$33.50 CDN) All LE
-By Candlelight- Golden pink
These are all repromotes, and I have this from the previous collection. This is an awesome highlighter. I love it and use it on the tops of my cheek bones. The pinky gold is flattering on all skin tones.
face candy grade: A+

-Stereo Rose- Coral with golden bronze shimmering nuances
-Comfort- Golden bronze
I use this one as a bronzer and the gold brightens a tan beautifully. I feel like mine is mostly the matte brown color and there are some tiny edges that have the gold veining but not much. Maybe some have more gold veining, I do wish mine did.
face candy grade: B-
-Petticoat- Pale rose with gold and amber veining

187 Brush ($42 US/$50.50 CDN)
A large, full circular brush used for lightweight application and blending of face powder or pigments.
