MAC Magnetic Nudes Collection: Review, Pics, & Swatches

MAC Magnetic Nudes Collection: Review, Pics, & Swatches

MAC has been busy lately, launching multiple collections the day after Christmas.  My favorite is the Magnetic Nudes collection.  This collection is all about looking very natural and glowy.  My favorite!

This extra dimension collection consists of 3 mineralize skinfinishes, 3 blushes, 5 eyeshadows, 3 fluidlines, 4 lipsticks, and 5 lip glasses.  I love the extra dimension formula as it gives a beautiful sheen without being glittery, chunky, or emphasizing skin texture to the extreme.  I didn’t grab any glosses (I need a new gloss like I need a hole in the head, you know?), although steel kiss looked very unique.  Overall I love this versatile collection.  I get so much use out of these everyday, wearable colors.  Below are descriptions and pictures of what I picked up (for reference, I am currently an NW22).  If you are more into a bold look then you may want to check out Punk Couture which released the same day.   It has dramatic, vampy lippies and bright, 80’s style pigments.

MSF’s

Superb (a repromote) is described as a peachy nude with multidimensional shimmer.  To me it looks like a gorgeous champagne color that would suit just about anyone.  It is very pigmented and long lasting.  One swipe on the cheekbone with a fan brush and you’ll be glowing all day as if you just stepped off Mount Olympus.  It’s beautiful, and if you like highlighters you will enjoy this product.

Fairly Precious is described as a peach with green pearl.  It’s a true, warm peach highlight.  This would best suit lighter skin tones in my opinion.  Like Superb, it has a smooth texture.  There was also Magnetic Appeal, which is a warm coppery color that would look beautiful on deeper skin tones.

Blushes

Autoerotique is described as a dirty coral rose.  This is a warm, easy to blend blush.  As with all extra dimension blushers, the color payoff is subtle but can be built up.  This is a very pretty and unique color.

At Dusk (repromote) is a stunning blush described as a dirty cool pink but does not look grey on the cheek.  This is very flattering on lighter skin tones.  Again, it gives a light wash of color but can be built up.

Eyeshadow

Amorous Alloy is described as a deep terracotta copper color with a metallic finish.  I had not intended on purchasing any extra dimension eyeshadow from this collection, but the girl at the counter sold me on this unique color.  It’s warm but not so warm that cool people can’t pull it off.  This is another product that will look great on an array of skin tones and eye colors.  The other eyeshadow colors were very pretty but seemed quite dupable to me.

Fluidline

It’s Physical is described as a brown with purple pearl.  This has a lot of purple shimmer in it, more than you can see in the pot.  I prefer using this all over the lid rather than as a liner.  It’s a really lovely color that would suit many eye colors.  The other fluidline that caught my eye was Our Secret, a metallic brown with red pearl.  This is another beautiful color that I had set out to purchase, but once swatched it reminded me of Constructivist paint pot.  I swatched them side by side at the counter and they looked identical on my arm so I did not buy it.

Lipstick

Morning Rose is described as a soft, cool rose creamsheen.  This is a very wearable, everyday dusty rose shade (again, suitable for multiple skin tones).  The rest of the lipsticks were mostly nudes, and since I don’t need any more nude lipsticks I did not purchase any.

I love life. In this world there are so many dark, scary, & depressing things around us. I prefer to focus on the good and benevolent: spirituality, self-exploration and growth, a healthy lifestyle, learning, people, travel, food, music, and all things beautiful. We all have an impact on the world around us. Let’s make it an excellent one, and may it be contagious.
