Thanks to Debbie who gave me the heads up! The MAC store at the Glendale Galleria released their Starflash Collection out early (I love them for this!) so the BF and I went on a date to the mall, LOL.
He took me to MAC (yes, that evil store!) and bought me some loot! I really tried to just get the colors I don’t already have, but I couldn’t decide so I ended up getting all of them (except Bold & Brazen since it was just ok to me) and I wanted “Talent Pool” but the MUA said they sold out of that already. So I guess i’ll just wait when it’s released at the Topanga mall on Thursday and nab it!
This collection is definitely pretty, BUT a majority of the colors ARE DUPE-able! So if you already have many of the permanent eyeshadows by MAC, you do not need to rush out to get the eyeshadows from this collection because they are almost identical! I don’t have “Fertile” e/s and many compared it to “Top Hat” from this collection, so I am glad I got it and it is indeed a gorgeous plummy color!
They are a lot smoother and ‘creamier’ than the permanent eyeshadows, I think the finish to these are “Veluxe Pearl” and it goes on so pigmented in just a couple swipes. I AM SELLING BRAND NEW “Star by Night” and “Grand Entrance” eyeshadow on my online store which will launch tomorrow! I am also going to be selling samples of MAC’s Lip Erase in “Dim”. A small scoop in a 3 gram jar, should last plenty of uses.
I have put some comparison pictures together of the starflash eyeshadow and the dupe down below…so you be the judge!
