Today during the lunch time, I went to the MAC store near job to see if they have the Style Black collection out already since they usually have the collection out early. I asked the MA and he told me it's out on Thursday but will let me take a peek. I looked at everything there, did some swatches on my hand, mainly on the items that I'm interested in.
This collection will def be loved by people who like dramatic looks. Some of the products are really amazing and have great color payoff, just in time for Halloween makeup.
I'm impressed with the Mineralized eye shadows, very pigmented and soft. They are basically all black base with blue, burgundy, silver and gold glitters. The glitters are very fine(unlike NARS night series) so it goes on really smooth. I have my eyes on the silver(Cinderfella) and the burgundy(Young Punk).
Personally I can't pull off the black lipstick but Black Knight is very creamy and pigmented, I can see it will be a popular item in the collection.
I was originally interested in the Greasepaint Stick the most. It reminds me of the more intense, creamy version of the shade stick. The color is super rich and supposed to be water/smudge proof. It can be used as liner or base. This is a true black, it's darker than Blackground p/p and Sharkskin shade stick (I have both and thinking about picking this one up).
I like both Mattene lipsticks, Midnight Media is a near-black, semi-matte creamy color. The color is even more intense than Black Knight. I personally like Night Violet, it's a very pretty burgundy.
All in all I'm in love with the Mineralized eye shadows in the collection, and will pick up a couple. Do you like this collection? What do you like?
