Review: MAC Après Chic, Fireside Mineralize Eyeshadow

Happy new year everyone!

On January 5th MAC launched their Après Chic Collection in The Netherlands. Since I already own Stereo Rose I only purchased one item from the collection, Fireside Mineralize Eyeshadow.

Fireside is a very interesting colour, I haven’t seen anything quite like it. It’s a reddish-purple with green-teal duochrome. This is a colour that works best when applied with a damp brush, because when you use this colour dry it hasn’t got much colour pay-off  I recommend using a primer beforehand, then applying the colour with a damp brush and after than apply some dry eyeshadow on top. This way you get the most colour pay-off and the colour will stay on longer.

MAC Mineralize Eyeshadows look beautiful in pan but are more tricky to work with than the normal eyeshadows. These tend to be less pigmented, have more fall out and fade easily. MAC Mineralize Eyeshadows come in a matte black plastic case with a see-through lid so you can see which colour is inside. These eyeshadows are slightly bigger than regular MAC eyeshadows and contain more product. A regular MAC eyeshadow contains 1.5 grams of product while a Mineralize Eyeshadow contains 2.2 grams of product.
