MAC is launching a new range of MAC Pro Longwear Colour Sticks ($22 US/$26 CAD) on May 19th, 2016 and MAC Studio Eye Gloss ($22 US/$26 CAD) on May 12th, 2016. I have two of the new Pro Longwear Sticks to share with you as well as one of the new Studio Eye Glosses.
The MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Colour Sticks are available in 21 shades with a range of finishes from matte to metallic with medium to full coverage pigmentation.
Long-wearing, vibrant and impactful, Pro Longwear Waterproof Colour Stick glides onto eyes, delivering high-definition colour and medium-to-full coverage in a single swipe. The sleek jumbo pencil is absolutely effortless, providing ultimate versatility, whether you’re going for a thick, chunky statement liner, or all-over colour from lash to lid.
Available shades are:
- Crème-Filled – soft champagne w/gold pearl
- Iris Eyes – light blue grey w/pearl
- Royally Blue – royal blue
- Silver Coin – frosty silver
- Copperpot – copper
- Tea Leaves – mid-tone dirty mauve
- Bitter Clove – deep brown
- Lilacked – light purple w/gold reflect
- Soft Steel – dirty brown grey
- Ever Evergreen – emerald green
- Midnight Shadows – deep plum
- Frisky Blue – bright cobalt
- Flat White – white
- At the Beach – soft skin nude
- Cinder Black – black
- Bleached Out Beige – dirty metallic w/gold pearl
- Sweet Viola – soft metallic violet
- Sand Bar – soft camel nude
- Madly Sunny – bright acid green
- Tabby – warm, clean nude
- Sweet Praline – soft peach
The two shades I have are Tea Leaves and Silver Coin.
Tea Leaves is described as being a mid-tone dirty mauve but I find it to be a mid-tone shimmering bronze shade.
Silver Coin is a bright metallic silver.
I found these eye sticks to apply quite smoothly to the lid without tugging. Both shades had a sheer-medium colour payoff with one pass that was easily built up to medium-full coverage. I didn’t find these blended out very well as they set quite quickly so I don’t thing they perform best for creating full eye looks. I prefer them on the lid or around the eye as more of a liner in cooperation with powder shadows. They are indeed very waterproof and budge proof. Micellar water wouldn’t even touch them, and it took a lot of scrubbing with cleansing oil to remove my swatches.
I also have the Studio Eye Gloss in Lightly Tauped. This is stunning sheer taupe gloss with multi faceted shimmer in tones of pink and blue. So, so pretty. As I’ve voiced in the past, as pretty as they are, I just don’t see the point of marketing these Eye Glosses to the general public. They are extremely sticky and tacky in texture and even for editorial use they are hard to work with. Other available shades are:
- Pearl Varnish – white gloss w/ pearl
- Medoc – deep burgundy gloss w/ pearl
- Noticeably Noir – black gloss w/ pearl
- Honey Money – true yellow gold metallic glitter
