I’ve been silent on the newest MAC Collection Cool Heat.
Why? Honestly…I’m not impressed. From the moment I saw the promo pictures I thought that every single eyeshadow color was dupe-able. I haven’t even gone to my MAC Pro to see it in person. I just knew I could create a Cool Heat look without…Cool Heat. So check it:
Here’s the palette I used.
These are the only blue/turquoise colors I own. I mean….how many does a gal need?
Here’s a little diagram to show where I placed the colors.
I used UDPP as a base. I found that using a colored primer (I tried Delft paint pot and a L’Oreal HIP creme liner) made the colors pop TOO much. Because these eyeshadow colors are so highly pigmented and blendable, I found that there was no need for colored bases.
I also used:
Vanilla pigment as a highlight
Clinique purple liner on waterline
Milani liquid liner on lower lash line
Urgent Slimshine (thanks Nywele!)
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW45
Bobbi Brown Brownie Shimmerbrick
(I seriously don’t see myself ever wearing foundation again. Is that bad? Heheheee….)
LOL, my flared nostrils. Cracks me up. I am really satisfied with passing on everything in the Cool Heat collection. However, if you are new to make-up or blues in general, this may be the perfect collection for you! I would love to hear your thoughts on this collection. And my look. Is there something I MUST take a look at? Whatcha thank?
Ciao chicas! Stay beautiful!
