Review | MAC Worthy Eye Shadow + MAC Teddy Eye Kohl

Everyone in beauty land seems obsessed with the brand new collaboration between MAC Cosmetics and Caitlyn Jenner, and with good reason because the collection looks really lovely! Two eye products from the collection immediately went on my wish list and today I’m showing you a look that features them both. Check it out!

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Worthy Eye Shadow

What a stunner, right? Worthy is described by MAC as a neutral plum with a satin finish and is toooootally my kind of color.

I love using reddened browns and plums in my outer eye corners and crease, and since the finish of Worthy is almost completely matte once applied – Houdini sparkles – it’s a great shade for blending. The color goes on smooth and evenly and is easy to blend, though for those looking to apply Worthy all over the eyelid it may take some building to get the intensity right.

Availability: 26 CHF, available in limited edition at the MAC Store in Lucerne and Zürich as well as in the MAC online store.

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Teddy Eye Kohl

Teddy is the only eyeliner in the MAC x Caitlyn Jenner collection and is described by the brand as an intense bronze.

It’s no secret that I love wearing colored eye pencil on my lower waterline, so I was a bit sad to discover that Teddy barely deposits any color there. Fortunately it does sit and wear well on skin, so for lash line work and winged liner action it’s a keeper.

Now let’s check out the look, shall we? Let’s start with some full frontal action:

✿ eyeshadow: MAC Amber Lights (eyelid) + Worthy (outer eye corners, crease & lash line) ✿
✿ eyeliner: MAC Teddy (upper lash line & wing) + Urban Decay Perversion (lower waterline) ✿
✿ mascara: Max Factor False Lash Epic Mascara ✿

Aaaand a little side view:

✿ skin: Kiss Me Sunkiller Super Lasting Base + Morphe Banana Powder ✿
✿ blush: Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzing Powder ✿
✿ lipstick: MAC See Sheer ✿

Doesn’t Worthy pair beautifully with Amber Lights (top swatch in the Instagram snap) on the eyelid? And I love how well the wing with Teddy complements the two eyeshadow colors! Great combination, if I do say so myself.

Did you pick up anything from the MAC x Caitlyn Jenner collection? What do you think of Worthy and Teddy?

Make-Up Look | Brown + Burgundy Smokey Eyes

You’re probably getting sick of me constantly posting looks featuring my Coastal Scents Custom Eyeshadow Palette, but I just can’t help it. I love my Coastal Scents Hot Pots! That’s the beauty of putting together your own eyeshadow palette: every single shade you pick is a shade you’ll love and use and – in my case – throw at people’s faces every chance you get. Today’s look features shimmery golden brown and red on the eyes paired with a peachy nude on the lips. Take a look!

Let’s start with eyes. I went with Coastal Scents Boca Mocha – a shimmery golden brown – on the eyelid and Coastal Scents Pomegranate Red – a matte red – in the outer corner of the eyes and crease. Blending Pomegranate Red into Boca Mocha makes it look less pure red and more burgundy, and turns it into a perfect color match for the Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Liner Pencil in Plumeria that I’m wearing on my lower waterline. I completed the eye look by smudging a bit of Coastal Scents Chocolatier against my lower waterline, highlighting my inner eye corner with Coastal Scents Snow Bunny and applying a lick of mascara (Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara) and a subtle wing just in the outer corners of my eyes (Sephora Fingertip Eyeliner).

On my skin I’m wearing my trusted combination of the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer and the Morphe Banana Powder, and for blush I went with Crochet from my Sleek Blush By 3 Lace Blush Palette. And on my lips is the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Nude Beach, a subtle peachy nude that balances out the heavy eye look.

What do you think of the look? Do you have a favorite eyeshadow palette?
