Available in September at MAC Cosmetics are the exclusive to Asia Pinwheels Mineralize Eyeshadow Collection. Each of the 5 eyeshadows has 4 complementary shades. As with all of MAC’s Mineralize eyeshadows, these can be used dry and wet.
The 2 samples I’ve been passed for review are Pink Sensibilities and In The Meadow, both of which swatch very well even when no water has been added. There is better intensity when used wet – the brush must not be too wet though. One way to control this is to dip the brush into a drop of water at a time.
I had an opportunity to have a makeover with these eyeshadows by MAC’s Senior Makeup Artist, Haritha Shan recently. Haritha mainly used brush #213 to dab the eyeshadows on, mixing the eyeshadows with a little water. The looks below have been created by Haritha.
There are 2 shades of pinks (pale pink & baby pink) and 2 shades of browns (light brown & dark brown) in Pink Sensibilities. It’s ideal for those looking for neutral shades. With the slight shimmers, these shades don’t look flat and boring. This is a good mix of eyeshadows for everyday use.
As for In The Meadow, the 4 shades consist of an icy white, pale yellow, mint green and olive green. All my kind of colours. Where Pink Sensibilities has warm shades, In The Meadow has cool shades which would suit fairer skin tones. I’m not sure if they’d show up much on darker skin tones unlike Pink Sensibilities. The icy white and pale yellow can be mixed together as highlight and the greens are perfect complements to each other. I prefer In The Meadow to Pale Sensibilities as the look is fresher.
