Best Of Make Up For Ever Kit Review

Make Up For Ever is one of my favorite brands overall. Their aqua eyes liners are simply incredible (see aqua eyes swatches at Beauty and Fashion Tech), and both their liquid and powder high definition foundations are my regular daily use foundations. Make Up For Ever also makes good primers and lip products. A good way to test them out is through the Best of Make Up For Ever Kit at Sephora.

Best of Make Up For Ever Kit

The kit contains the following products:

High Definition Microfinish Powder: A wonderful finish powder.

Aqua Cream in 13 Warm Beige (champagne shimmer): A beautiful shimmer highlighting cream that is great as a pretty overall shimmer eye shade or as an eye highlighting cream (which is how I use it).

Travel Aqua Eyes in Mat Black 0L (black): I love aqua eyes. The liners are seriously waterproof, glide on easily, and wear all day and evening.

Lab Shine Lip Gloss in Star Collection – S4 (pearly pink beige): A pretty pink gloss in a neutral shade that will work for just about anyone.

High Definition Microperfecting Primer: a great overall skin and makeup primer.

Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara: a Good basic black mascara for daily use.

Here are swatches of the the Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Gloss and Aqua Cream.

Overall, I love this kit and highly recommend it.

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.

Art of Powders will be on the shelves on September 29, 2011.
