Mail Arrived: MAC and Illamsqua


This time I have made swatches for you guys.  I feel a little over-loaded with eyeshadows for the time being - so it may take a while for FOTD :S


MAC Pro Longwear Eye Shadow - 7 in total

Lie Low - dark frosted golden brown



Make your Mark - dark chocolate


 Keep Your Cool - dark grey brown


Hot Paprika - mid-tone burnt red


Carefree - pale white gold


Sunny Outlook - bright golden yellow
Plush - vivid purple



Didn't use any base or cream under the swatches - these eyeshadow are slightly dry but very very very very pigmented and long lasting!!!! My flash washed out some colours and my arms are dry - but you can still get the idea of their vivid beauty!

MAC Evil Eye Palette





Swatched with some cream eyeshadow underneath - forgot what it is.  But the colour pay-off is just okay for this palette :S

    *Illamasqua from ASOS.com*





    Illamsqua Liquid Metal - Enrapture (Molten Bronze)
    Illamasqua Pressed Eyeshadow - Soul (Cool Silver, Shimmer Finish)
    Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss - Soul (Shimmering champagne nude)



    *left Ore, right Incite*



    Illamasqua Pure Pigment
    •  Incite (Warm gold shimmer) - got 2 of these because I love bronze-gold
    • Ore (rich russet bronze)
    • Fervent - silly me forgot to picture this! :S

    That's it, just a prelim swatch and 1st impression.  I wore Ore pigment and Soul lipgloss from Illamasqua out, but the rest - they are still sitting in my stash crying... Should give them more love in near future.  Colour combo ideas welcome!!!!

    2. Hi Tao, yes indeed! The Illamasqua colours are amazing. I wore the pigments and took pics - but then I totally forgot everything I wore on my face - FOTD fail...

      No worry - I am sure they will come soon! ><

    3. Oops, I haven't seen these Pro Longwear eyeshadows by Mac before, must be living under a rock, haha :P I would pick the same basic colours that you picked though! The Illamasqua liquid metal swatch left me speechless. Seriously. Have fun wearing it! xx

    4. @Evi, I first saw them on temptalia, she always does clear swatches of everything released (from MAC at least). I don't own a lot of MAC usual eyeshadows because I feel they are quite expensive, dollar to gram, these pro longwear are similar price but much bigger, do check them out - they don't have too many colours though :P

      agree~~ The Liquid Metal is real AMAZEMENT!!! ^.^
