MAC in Monochrome Collection

MAC recently released a limited collection of monochromatic looks surrounding some of their most popular lipstick colors.¬† I only purchased four items from the launch (so far ūüėČ).¬† For a complete rundown of colors and items available you can check out the collection on the MAC website by clicking here.¬† This is a limited release collection, so the easiest access to everything is through the MAC website.¬† Other retailers that do have the collection available only have the capsules for See Sheer, Ruby Woo, and Velvet Teddy.¬† That means that if you want items from the Diva, Candy Yum-Yum, or Heroine capsules you’ll have to purchase through MAC.

I just thought I’d share swatches of the items I have because I didn’t really see any dark skin bloggers or vloggers showing this collection.¬† Dear Teddy eyeshadow is from the Velvet Teddy capsule, Diva don’t care blush and dare to Diva are from the Diva capsule, and Apple Red blush is from the Ruby Woo capsule.

Chanel Gris Anthracite vs MAC Knight Divine

When I started this comparison, my goal was to write a buy this, not that post.¬† However, as I tested these two shadows I discovered that they each have enough nuance that I truly like them both for different¬†reasons.¬† I want to be clear that these observations are based on the application which appears somewhat different than the swatches.¬† Also, the photos of the actual eyeshadows do not do these shades justice. I’d really recommend seeing them in person if you can.
