Hello everyone! MAC had an interesting launch up its sleeve this January : a collaboration with Caitlyn Jenner post her transition. The collection has a stark black-gold packaging and has quite a few conventional yet interesting shades to choose from. I picked up a lipstick (Understanding), a cremesheen glass (Tolerance) and an eyeshadow (Malibu Bronze) from the collection.
About the Collection :
Caitlyn Jenner’s collection continues her mission of sharing her transition with the world, championing All Ages, All Races and All Sexes. Elegant, classic shades for lips, eyes and cheeks are beautifully suited for those who embrace life, in whatever form they choose. Specially packaged in luxurious soft-touch black and shiny gold.
The lipsticks are available for INR 1500 each, cremesheen glasses at INR 1850 each and eye shadows at INR 1350 each.
My Overview of the Products :
I have already confessed how much I love aesthetically packaged products. And the packaging of this one is a BOMB! It is so lovely to see a deviation from MAC’s traditional black-silver to black-gold especially for this collection. I can go on and on about how classy and elegant the products look in their shiny gold and velvet matte black cases. The packaging is certainly one of the USPs of the MAC Caitlyn Jenner collection. 🙂
MAC Cremesheen glass tolerance –
This is a very pretty pink with subtle plum undertones with fine shimmers. It isn’t a bright pink but a muted one that gives a semi-opaque coverage in just a single swipe. The shimmers shine through beautifully and give that extra dimension to the lips. Tolerance is a very wearable shade and can be worn well over both a lipstick or on its own. The wear time is around 3-4 hours on my lips. I love this shade for its versatility and find it to be a perfect summer hue!
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick Understanding –
This again is a very pretty coral shade leaning towards orange. It would look great on fair to medium Indian skin tones. On my NC 40 complexion, Understanding comes out as a beautiful soft orangey coral and wears for around 5 hours leaving behind a faint tint on the lips. However, this tugs a little while applying initially but the finish is pretty amazing. The color actually brightens up my face without screaming attention. It is non-drying on the lips since it is a cremesheen formula and the color payoff is awesome too. I think I have found my coral love for the summers. 🙂
MAC Eye SHadow Malibu Bronze –
Malibu Bronze is again a very beautiful, versatile and wearable eye shadow color. It is a darker hue of copper with MAC’s Veluxe Pearl formula. The color payoff is incredible and stains the eyelids beautifully. The shade also has a subtle sheen to it. It is easily blended without any fallout. The texture feels buttery soft and is as easily applied with fingers as with a brush. I wore it on its own (without an eye shadow primer) for around 6 hours straight and noticed minimal budging. I believe this could last longer than that even without a base, with the latter adding on to the longevity. Malibu Bronze is just so apt for our Indian weddings. It looks so gorgeous and would team up excellently with any traditional attire. 🙂 Added to my party stash!
The Final Verdict :
MAC Caitlyn Jenner Collection to me is a complete winner. The packaging and shade selection of the products are what makes this collection stand out. And oh, the lip products have the signature vanilla fragrance of MAC lippies as well! I am not very fond of glosses, but I’m so in love with Tolerance. Malibu Bronze is such a standout shiny copper shade with an amazing texture and ease of application. My favorite? Well it has to be Understanding! Although I’m more of a matte lover than creamy or lustre finishes, but it is this soft yet bright coral shade that totally bought me. I am glad because there are times I would not be willing to sport a bright pout, yet want something colorful. That’s when Understanding would readily come to my rescue. 🙂
MAC Caitlyn Jenner collection has something for everybody. It has a very wearable and versatile shade range to choose from. There are also quite a few pretty neutral shades in addition to some everyday-wear hues. For now, I’m loving all the three pieces that I own from this collection. 🙂
