MAC Styleseeker Collection Reviews, Photos, Swatches

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. πŸ™ 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.

Did you check out the MAC Styleseeker collection? What did you end up grabbing? I think I’ll go take a look at the other Mattene lipsticks from the collection.

  • omggg that nude mattene looks amazing! How did I not even bother to check it out!? Love it! Plus Fashion Nomad looks awesome on you too.

    • Mmmmm Delectable, you need it. πŸ™‚

  • I got that blush and love it too! Also have Camden Chic Mattene. LOVE. That nude is perfect for you Geekz!

    • Oooh Camden Chic is gorgeous Tracy! πŸ™‚ Perfect redhead red.

  • Oooh that blush really looks good on your skintone, such a pretty glow :). I want to try the mattenes too, it’s funny how fashion nomad looks different on you, but it’s a really beautiful shade!

    • Supercontinental blush is gorgeous. It would look great on you Teri. πŸ™‚

  • Supercontinental looks really light on you (but very good. Glowing peachy coral shade)! I’m going to swatch it when I get the opportunity (probably next Saturday. We’re getting a new MAC store here), but I’m pretty sure I’ll be too tempted!

    • Hi Sunny! It’s like a highlighter/coral blush hybrid on me. Really nice finish. I’m hoping I could photograph a FOTD of me wearing it. Make sure you check out the collection in stores. There are some really great products in there.

  • BooBooNinja

    Great lip swatches, as usual. (I <3 your lips!)
    Totally off topic, but I'm eager for details on your NYC trip. Are you going to blog about it?

    • Hey BooBooNinja! I don’t know yet if I’m blogging about NYC. I didn’t take many photos at all. Maybe when my sis uploads them. πŸ™‚

  • Liz

    Such gorgeous swatches!

    The fluidline was starting to appeal to me until I read your assessment. Thanks for killing that lemming! πŸ˜‰

  • I have Dark Diversion from the original release. I almost swapped it away because it is sheer but it is such a lovely colour! Shame they couldn’t have made it in as opaque a formula as Blacktrack. πŸ™

  • Ah, I’ve been avoiding checking out the collection as there are a few things I’d love – Restless lipglass and the Hidden Treasure blush, for two – and I just can’t GO there right now! Must. Save. Money. However, you’re also making a strong case for that Delectable shade, and the Mattene formula as a whole. I have a Mattene lippie from a few years ago and quite like the formula, though the shade itself is pretty vampy and intense.

  • Oh no, another MAC lipstick collection I’ll need to try out after seeing these gorgeous swatches. Geez – I love your blog, but it makes me buy more makeup!! Lol!!
