Some items from MAC Styleseeker Collection
MAC Styleseeker is MAC’s big fall colour collection that launched last week. We are seeing eyeshadow duos, Fluidlines, Mattenes and blushes in warm, moody colours to suit the season.
MAC Dark Diversion Fluidline ($18) is described as a blackened plum. I wanted this when it first came out in 2010, and now it’s being repromoted for a limited time in this collection. And the verdict? Meh. It’s not as dark and opaque as I’d like. It requires 2 or 3 passes before I get “blackened plum.” Not black enough. The Fluidline is still one of my favourite products that MAC offers because of its longevity and ease of use. I wish I could love it but this shade’s formula is a miss for me.
MAC Supercontinental Powder Blush ($24) is a beautiful glowing light coral pink in a satin finish. It is wonderfully pigmented, and the shade goes with everything. The glow is very fine, but it may highlight big pores or uneven texture on some. I personally love this and have been wearing it constantly.

MAC Fashion Nomad Mattene
Here we’ve finally arrived at lipstick! This collection has introduced me to the infamous Mattene lipstick and it is love, you guys! MAC Fashion Nomad and Delectable Mattene ($18) lipsticks are both amazing. I experience no hard tugging on application, and the formula is a new matte that is not flat. I really adore Delectable, which is a great nude for my tan skin tone (NC40). I don’t have issues with dryness with these, and that is a sign of a good matte formula.
