MAC – “Fabulous Felines” Collection REVIEW
The collection is inspired by colors associated with a cat with a range of smokey colors and neutrals. With its eclectic appeal, the collection speaks to both the conservative and the dramatic, in terms of makeup style preferences of its customers.
I typically love the fall collections because there is so much to offer. This season, MAC has come out with a new eyeliner called, “Superslick Liquid Eye Liner.” The best thing about these liners are that they are NOT limited and will become a permanent product! I’m sure they will sell out rather quickly and it’ll take a long time before they come back regularly so I recommend buying at least one of these to try out!
I have gotten a chance to play with the liners and I do very much like the applicator and the smoothness of the liquid. I initially wanted almost every color, especially the gold one, “Pure Show” but I think I will just limit myself to buying the black one (“On the Hunt”) for the time being. I’m such a huge Penultimate and Liquidlast liner person that I don’t feel the need to make the switch just yet!
Although I love a good amount of the collection, I’m limiting myself to a few special items!
The “Burmese Beauty” is by far my favorite quad. I love all the colors because they go with a lot of other shadows and can be used on an everyday basis. It’s extremely hard to find the right gold (they are usually too yellow or too brassy) shadow and I’m excited to try this one out!
Additional Items to add to my “Fabulous Felines” Shopping List:
- “Spree” lipglass
This is very pretty, I like it by itself and to layer over nude lipsticks to amplify the color more.
- “To Pamper” lipstick (lustre)
I am really into taupe brown on the lips. It shockingly looks great on me despite the fact the color kind of looks ugly in the tube.
* ALL THE MINERALIZE BLUSHES:
- “The Soft Meow”
This I’m interested in trying out for contouring the cheekbones
- “Utterly Game”
I always love a good peach blush. This looks very soft and pretty.
- “Pet Me”
This is a light baby pink blush. I don’t really have a blush like this and look forward to adding it to my collection.
There are many other things that catch my eye but the list above are my essentials!
The expectations are high for the fall collection launch and I’m pretty impressed with the color stories behind each look.
I LOVE every single blush! I really only wanted to limit myself to one being that I already have a massive blush collection, but I may just have to buy all three!
All the quads are unique yet wearable and offer a nice assortment of eye shadows to create various looks. This is definitely a great set of quads compared to previous years.
Surprisingly, I find the lip colors to be a little weak. I like a lot of the colors but I’m not in love with that many of them. It would have been a delight to have seen “Amplified” and “Satin” textures in this collection rather than the typical “Glaze,” “Lustre,” and now “Dazzle” (NOT a fan of these…talk about glitter overload on the lips).
I was instantly attracted to, “Of Royalty” because it’s a baby pink in the cremesheen texture, which I always like but I decided to pass because I have so many pink lipsticks within that same color family: “Lovelorn,” “Viva Gaga,” etc. I really don’t NEED another light pink lipstick I’ve decided.
