Here’s one other look I did to seek out out what’s good from the MAC Shiny Pretty Holiday Collection, this time with liquid liner and lustrous lids. If you’re on this assortment, here’s another look I did using the highlighters, and another look using one of the new glitter eyeshadows.
The MAC Shiny Pretty Things Holiday Collection is all about shiny fairly issues. Even the eyeliners are chock-full of sparkly stuff.
Here’s one other look experiment I did this week, this one utilizing two of the 4 $22 Dazzleliners — a golden pink referred to as Holiday Time! and a charcoal black with silver and gold glitter referred to as A Little Moonlight (LOVE that identify, BTW).
For the document, I nonetheless like carrying glitter (sure, even at my age), but it surely’s not an on a regular basis factor anymore as a result of — let’s get actual right here — glitter isn’t straightforward to put on whenever you’re 40+ years previous (hi there, pores and
wrinkles expertise strains!).
But I believe it could nonetheless be enjoyable in managed doses, particularly if the glitter, like in these Dazzleliners, sticks to your pores and skin like glue.
Dazzleliner in Holiday Time!
There’s a TON of glitter in the Dazzleliners, however what else would you anticipate from one thing with the phrase “dazzle” in the identify?
The Dazzleliners are like glittery MAC Liquidlast Liners. Similar packaging, and the identical skinny paint brush applicator, comparable viscosity. The liquid isn’t runny; it’s nearer to a cream, but it surely’s much less thick and dense than a cream shadow or gel liner.
Holiday Time seems to be extra cool yellow gold than pink on my NC42 lids. I believed it may be just like Urban Decay’s gold Glitter Liner in Midnight Cowboy earlier than I truly used it, however the two are vastly completely different. The Urban Decay Glitter Liners include glitter items suspended in a transparent base, whereas the MAC Dazzleliners have their glitter items in an opaque pearly golden base.
I’m carrying Holiday Time as an eyeshadow on this look. I drew thick slashes with the skinny paintbrush applicator immediately on my lids, then buffed it out with a MAC 217. The liquid units in a short time, like in lower than a minute, after which level it doesn’t transfer (yup, it’s additionally long-lasting).
After I buffed out the liquid liner, I might see the varied shapes and sizes of the glitter items in the liner (so sparkly, and very cool). The pearly base sheered out considerably, and as the liquid liner set on my lids, I might really feel it barely tightening up a bit of, as if one thing in the components was evaporating away shortly.
The tightening sensation didn’t damage or something. I simply didn’t anticipate it.
By the method, I layered a contact of pink glitter eyeshadow on prime for further shimmer on this look — the shade Major Win, which can also be one among the Shiny Pretty Shadows from the assortment.
I like Holiday Time! (Both actually and figuratively, haha.) It’s long-lasting, too. If I had been going dancing, I do know I might put on it, and it might final all night time lengthy. Only factor is that I want it regarded a bit of extra pink on me.
Dazzleliner in A Little Moonlight
I’m additionally carrying A Little Moonlight as a liner on my higher lash line on this look. It’s black with silver and gold pearl, and identical to the Liquidlast Liners, it’s a bit of tough for me to get a clean edge with it, so I dip an angled brush right into a charcoal shadow (MAC Extra Dimension in Dark Dare), and use that to clean any jagged edges. Granted, I used to be drawing the line on prime of a sh*t ton of glitter…so I believe it might’ve been smoother if my lids weren’t coated in the sparkly stuff.
I can see hints of purple, which I didn’t anticipate in any respect. Used as a liner, it seems to be like a darkish charcoal with silvery bits and a contact of purple. If I buff it out (like how I did with Holiday Time), it retains a great quantity of the charcoal grey base, so it doesn’t sheer out as a lot as Holiday Time. The silver and gold glitter pops once I do that, and it’s tres dramatique! (I could or might not have made up that final phrase.)
Everything else on my face is MAC
Here’s an inventory of every thing else I’m carrying on this look, and please be happy to ask me something: Studio Fix Foundation in NC42, Fleur Power Blush, Edge to Edge Lip Liner, Babetown Lipstick (which can also be from Shiny Pretty Things), Soba Eyeshadow, Lowlights Fludline and Hush Cream Colour Base.
