MAC Art Of Powders Swatches and Review

The MAC Art of Powders Collection consists of three pretty powder compacts, a highlighter, a bronzer, and an eye shadow. I always like looking at art compacts such as these, and it feels almost wrong messing them up by using them. Swatches of the highlighter and bronzer really didn’t show up well for me. I did, however, swatch the eye shadow and have a photo here.  The highlighter is a soft light pink and a press photo is shown below.

Next is a photo of the bronzer. It comes out as a light bronze despite how much pink is in the compact, but I don’t know what will happen as the top bronze shade wears down some so that more pink is picked up.

The Art of Powders eye shadow is a really pretty one. The shades are very luminous.

Here are the MAC Art of Powders swatches from sections of the eye shadow and of a mix across all of the shades. The mix is the first shade on the left and it came out pinker than I expected. It is difficult to get individual shades from the compact since each is rather small, but I managed to get some of them. In reality, I tend to think of these things more as collector items than as daily use items.

MAC Posh Paradise Lipstick Swatches

Coming in September from MAC is the Posh Paradise Collection with new paint pots, mattene lipsticks and nail polishes. Here are Posh Paradise lipstick swatches of three shades from the collection. The lipsticks are semi-matte and come in slimline cases. They have a good amount of pigment and feel smooth and moisturizing. Overall, I really like the consistency of them and I got good wear in my test of one.

Swatches are of the following shades:  Eden Rouge, Delectable, and Legendary.  You can see indoor photos of the same swatches at our sister site, Beauty and Fashion Tech and I put up a separate post here with outdoor swatches of a few of the paint pots from the collection.

MAC Posh Paradise Paint Pot Swatches and Review

The MAC Posh Paradise Collection includes a set of new paint pots. MAC paint pots are a thicker cream eye shadow that has a smooth texture and very long wear. Set with a bit of powder and you can get full day and evening coverage with no fading or creasing. I do love those paint pots, so I also love getting new shades of them! One word of warning, I have had paint pots dry out if I didn’t get the cap put back on nice and tight, so always tighten up the caps on these!!!

MAC Posh Paradise Paint Pot Swatches

Here are MAC Paint Pot swatches in the following shades: Genuine Treasure, Idyllic, Nubile, and Pure Creation. I posted indoor photos of these on our sister site, Beauty and Fashion Tech. If you want additional views of them, you can see that post here: MAC Posh Paradise Swatches.I really love both Idyllic, which I do not think particularly matches MAC’s written description (“mid-tone copper bronze”) and Pure Creation, which is a gorgeous shimmering blue. I don’t tend to wear bright colors in eye shadow, but I sure do love looking at that shade!
