The Everyday Face with MAC Cosmetics: Well-dressed Blush, Ricepaper Eyeshadow, Oyster Girl Lipgloss and Smolder Kohl



Here's a rare post - featuring MAC makeup from the permanent collection. I tend to gravitate towards the new releases as being a makeup addict that I am, I still have not been able to shake off my MAC addiction completely. Because of the hype around the different monthly releases, it is easy to overlook all the other beautiful perfect everyday products MAC has to offer from their permanent line. In this review, I will be talking about MAC Well-dressed blush, MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow, MAC Oyster Girl Lipglass and MAC Smolder Eye pencil; my two pennies' worth and some swatches.

MAC Well-dressed blush
This is a light cool-toned pink with a very slight silvery sheen. It is a satin finish. I found this to be quite similar to Full of Joy blush from the recent limited edition blush collection, although this is just pinker toned. It is very beautiful and buildable. It is currently one of my favourites for this spring.


MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow
This eyeshadow is a light yellow beige with shimmer. It has a frost finish, but it applies like a veluxe pearl. Definitely another favourite!

MAC Oyster Girl Lipglass
This lipglass is a semi-sheer light cool-toned pink with fine gold glitters. Like all MAC tinted lipglasses, this is semi-sticky. It matches Well-dressed blush perfectly.

MAC Smolder Eye Kohl
MAC smolder eye pencil is a deep black. It is not quite as dark as the holy-grail but limited edition MAC Feline pencil, which is great as it makes it more wearable. This is very creamy to apply and glides on the lids. However, it is quite smudgy and would be great for that smokey eye look. You can seal it with eyeshadow on top to make it migrate less.

And now here are swatches: Well-dressed blush, Ricepaper eyeshadow, Smolder, Oyster Girl

  1. All these colors looks beautiful together on your skin! I already have Ricepaper which is a pretty color, and now I think I'll check out Well Dressed blush. Do you think it's similar to Stunner?

    1. Well-dressed is a lot more cool pink whereas I find Stunner to be a warmer pink. Know what, I'll do a swatch post just for you ;>

  4. Really pretty MAC post! I've been eyeing the Well-Dressed blush, and now I'm convinced so I will definitely be picking it up soon! And I know what you mean, I always tend to snatch up the new releases, so I overlook a lot of great products. I'll make sure to take a good look next time I'm at MAC!
