MAC Colourizations Collection Review & Swatches + A Glimpse at the Cine-Matics Lip & Brush Bags! :D

This collection kinda slipped under my radar, just like the past (Suite Array, Digi Pops, the like)... guess eyeshadow duos / quads are just not my thing! Haha!! :D

Anyways i thought i'd swatch them anyways since i dropped by the store to pick up a few things. Most of the shadows featured here are ok, they're neither boring nor fascinating. Some have beautiful texture, but some are rather chalky. I do happen to like Double Feature 2 though, but then again greens are my thing so I'm biased! :D

What I like about them is that the shadow compacts are refillable once you're done with the current shadows! Sure makes it alot more compact to tote around than the usual quads! :)

Ok, lets go straight to the swatches! :D

Double Feature Shadow Compacts (US$25 / RM103):

Double Feature 4 - Deep forest green (Veluxe Pearl), Midtone ochre brown (Matte)
Double Feature 2 - Bright Lime (Veluxe Pearl), Frosty deep grey (Frost)
Double Feature 5 - Pale frosty peach (Frost), Dark brown with green pearl (Frost)
Double Feature 6 - Light grey taupe (Matte), Midtone bronze (Veluxe Pearl)

Double Feature 8 - Midtone orange (Frost), Deep navy (Satin)
Double Feature 1 - Bright yellow gold (Veluxe Pearl), Pink-up chrome purple (Frost)
Double Feature 7 - Bright fuschia (Frost), Cool black (Satin)
Double Feature 3 - Midtone teal (Matte), Deep chocolate (Satin)

Technakohl Liners (US$15 / RM65):

I absolutely LOVE the Technakohl liners! They're safe to use on the waterline (the non-shimmery ones anyways), they come in so many colors, and they're sooo easy to use! :) All liners here are from the permanent line. I'm kinda fed up with my current Stubborn Brown powerpoint because it keeps on sliding out of the pencil, so I'm definitely repurchasing my beloved Photogravure soon! :D

Jade Way - Pure emerald green with frost
Purple Dash - Intense aubergine
Auto-de-blu - Amethyst
Uniform - Deep khaki green with gold pearl
Photogravure - Soft black with brown undertone. Read my review here.
Graphblack - Rich graphic black

Lip (US$38 / RM165) and Brush (US$49.50 / RM250) Bags:

Once again, I feel quite "meh" about these. The neat thing is that you get a free bag with every set. I'll have to say that i'm rather intrigued with the colorful brushes though... they will look pretty sitting on your dresser! :D

Makeup Lessons (US$49.50 / RM250):

This collection features two "makeup lessons", which are essentially a palette containing 3 eyeshadows that compliment each other (all permanent shades), two brushes, an eyeliner and a mascara. Methinks that this is a great travelling kit! :D

Mascara - Zoomlash in Zoomblack (Mini)

That's all for this collection. What do you think about this? :D


  1. I've always wanted to get them MAC boxes. I totally regretted that I didn't get the one from last year. This year's ones are a little *meh* however. >.<

    I do know one thing, however, I want the Rebel lipstick from MAC Me Over when it comes to our shores.

  2. The purple in 1 and the pink in 7 look like a great pair together, but too bad they're not in the same duo set. =(

  3. Hanny: I feel the same! Hopefully next year's will be nicer! :D

    Thats a lovely lipstick! :D You getting anything else from that collection? :D

  4. Oohhh thats a shame! Well word goes that these duos will be permanent soon (the empties), so you actually get to choose which permanent shadow you wanna place in there! :D

  5. The eyeshadows look pretty! Thanks for the swatches.

  6. I must admit I look forward to your MAC arm swatches! ;-) Like Karla Sugar's... sweet! :)

  7. gio: yes they are! I especially love that lime green! :D

  8. milktea: oh dear thats such a huge compliment!! Hehehe!! Thank you!! <3

    Hers is much, much better though!!
