MAC Après Chic is a new limited edition collection featuring some new Mineralize goodies.
Inside Après Chic you will find five Lipsticks (Warm Companion, Cozy Up, Haute Attitude, Après Chic, Hot Chocolate), five Mineralize Tinted Lip Balms ( Stay Warm!, Slightly Nude, Pure & Tender, Nice & Simple, Rosy Romance), two Nail Lacquers (Hangin’ Loose, Dangerously Fun), five Pro Longwear Eye Liners (Black Ice, Rich Experience, Mountain Air, Night Trail, Snow Shadow), five Mineralize Eye Shadows (Ice, Winter Pursuit, Silver Birch, Frost At Midnight, Fireside), three Mineralize Blushes (Amber Glow, Alpine Bronze, Gentle) and two Mineralize Skinfinishes (Porcelain Pink, Stereo Rose).
I have just a few items from the collection so let’s dig in!
Frost At Midnight, Ice
Frost At Midnight, Ice
Ice, Frost At Midnight
Ice is a pale peachy/gold shade. This one had pretty great pigmentation and it’s a nice neutral shimmery color.
Frost At Midnight is a medium purple/grey shade. This one wasn’t quite as dark or pigmented as I expected. The shades when blended together create a medium smokey purple shade. It would probably be much more intense used wet.
Stay Warm!, Warm Companion
Black Ice, Warm Companion, Stay Warm!
Black Ice Pro Longwear Eye Liner is a deep black shade. It’s not as jet black as say Feline, but very black nonetheless.It definitely stays put better than Feline on me!
Warm Companion Lipstick is a frosty peachy/gold shade. Kind of unusual and weird, but I like it. It doesn’t look too frosty on, more shimmery.
Stay Warm! Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm is a light pink shade. It looks in the tube like it has a lot of gold shimmer, but really you don’t see it on the lips. It’s very sheer so it basically looks like a glossy clear coat on me.
Hangin’ Loose, Dangerously Fun
Hangin’ Loose is a warm-toned beige/champagne with subtle shimmer. This was a bit patchy on me, even after three thin coats.
Dangerously Fun is a cool-toned blood red creme. Nice deep shade, very even with two coats but not unique.
Overall: Nothing I tried really blew me away in terms of uniqueness here. The Eye Shadows are nice as is the Eye Liner, but nothing made me very excited. I feel like the Tinted Lip Balms are really expensive for the amount you get (0.33 oz is $19.50).
Availability: Now until February 6th.
Pricing: Mineralize Eye Shadow ($21), Pro Longwear Eye Liner ($19.50), Lipstick ($15), Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm ($19.50), Nail Lacquer ($16).
