Just when I thought I’d seen it all from MAC they give me an eyeshadow called Vivacious Vacuum Cleaner Bag, haaaaaa!
In celebration of the Simpson’s 25th birthday the matriarch of the family has brought us her own line of cosmetics via MAC. Go on with your bad self Marge! In the collection is eyeshadow quads, blusher, lipgloss, lashes and nail stickers.
I had a little treat brought back for me from the states by my very kind family who were recently over there. Knowing my obsession with the limited edition eyeshadow quads they brought me the ‘Extra Ingredients Quad’ back. The minute I laid eyes on it I was in love. Some of my most prized eyeshadows are the Wonder Woman quads that were out few year back. Remember them?…
K then I better get on with the review!
Packaging – 9/10
I love these slim line little cases, they are perfect for slipping into your handbag on a night out. The design on the lid is fab and eye-catching. Then there’s the actual shadows that have Marge’s outline pressed into them, fab.u.lous! The only reason it wasn’t a 10 for me is that they didn’t include a brush, which for the price I think they should!
Pigmentation – 9/10
As with all MAC eyeshadows these are super pigmented and very original colours. You have Harpooned Heart which is a lovely shimmering pink, Sexy PB & J a gorgeous violet, Beehive Blue a stunning vivid blue and Vivacious Vacuum Cleaner Bag (haaaaaaaaaaa) which is a very deep navy that swatches almost black.
Application – 8/10
Although beautiful colours that have great pigmentation, these shadows lose points because they aren’t as buttery soft as MAC’s usual shadows. That said with a bit of building and extra blending these can give you a kick ass look!
Overall – 8.5/10
The packaging, the colour combination, the names… This palette is fab, it only loses points on two things for me. The absence of a brush and the fact that these shadows aren’t as finely milled and easy to blend as my other MAC shadows. Overall I would say this is definitely one for the collection!
Did any of The Simpsons collection take your fancy? Or do you have any other limited edition bits from MAC?
PEACE & LOVE
