MAC Julia Petit Collection
First things, who is Julia Petit? With her long, fiery red hair and super pale (inked!) skin, it didn’t occur to me at first that she was Brazilian. I blame Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Gisele Bundchen’s all-year-long golden tans for that kind of mindset. And guess what else? She is a blogger. One of Brazil’s biggest lifestyle bloggers — who does makeup tutorials on the side enough to garner her the status of ‘beauty icon‘ in São Paulo. Wait, A blogger with a MAC Collection? I haven’t followed MAC collections religiously so I’m not sure if there have been other bloggers they’ve collaborated with – but wow! This is a great feat for bloggers worldwide because it means they recognize the influence bloggers yield in this social media-driven world.
What I like about this collection is that one of Julia’s priorities was making sure it would withstand the most humid of climates. One last bit of information — and probably my takeaway from this collection, LOL — can you frikkin’ believe she is 42? If 42 looks like that, can I be 42 now? Her skincare regimen? Coconut oil all over her face and body despite everyone telling her, “but you don’t want more oil on your skin if you’re oily!” (WHAT’S THAT SOUND? Me slathering on CBeauty Virgin Coconut Oil all over my face right now).
Moving Sand is an eyeshadow duo of a ‘soft nude caramel-y brown’ with yellow undertones and of a Matte finish (MUMU) and a black pearl with a Lustre finish (NOITE). Mumu is excellent – incredibly smooth and creamy that you wouldn’t think it’s a powder. For a matte shadow, it’s very pigmented! I would get this as a single eyeshadow if MAC sold it in its regular line because it’s a very versatile shade – perfect as a crease shade as well as a transition shade (to blend two shadows together). Noite on the other hand is disappointing. Not because it’s a lustre, which means it’s a given fact that the pay-off is rather on the sheer side. But because it’s dry, streaky and incredibly challenging to blend.
Acai Lipstick in Matte was probably love at first sight. It instantly reminded me of Rebel, which I’ve always hesitated on getting because I was at a pinky nude stage forever then – but now that I’ve been more open to reds and plums – come to Momma, baybeh! It’s officially described as ‘vivid deep violet’ in the MAC website but I agree with Temptalia’s shade description more – ‘brightened medium-dark fuchsia-berry’. The matte isn’t the suck-out-all-the-moisture kind of matte, but it isn’t a creamy matte either as it’s completely dry. Definitely one of the better matte formulas I’ve tried.
