Color Club Foiled Collection for Fall 2011 Swatches, Photos & Review

Color Club Foiled is a new collection for fall 2011 featuring six new foil or chrome colors.

I for one love foil nail polish, especially colors that are true metal colors like gold, silver, copper, etc.

The formula was really pretty good with all of these. Some foils tend to be a little streaky but these gave me no problem in that area at all. All of them were so opaque you only needed two coats.

MAC Matchmaster Foundation SPF 15 for Fall 2011 Swatches & Review

MAC Matchmaster Foundation

MAC has a new foundation out this fall called Matchmaster Foundation SPF 15.

This new foundation spans a wide range of colors starting off with 1.0 and moving to 10.0. There are fourteen shades in all (1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 8.5, 9.0, 9.5, 10.0) of these medium build foundations.

This foundation was 15 years in the making for MAC and features some patented pigment technology which encapsulates micronized pigment particles in translucent spheres. What that does is give a true-to-life shade to your skin while allowing your natural skin color to show through. The result is a demi-matte finish.

This SPF 15 foundation is long-wearing (up to 8 hours they claim) and formulated with Laminaria Saccharina Extract which helps calm skin’s sebaceous glands, which results in less oil being produced. There are also soft focus powders and spherical polymers which help minimize the appearance of pores, lines and wrinkles.
