MAC Riveting

MAC, Riveting, promo80s glam collection Riveting arrived at counters late last week, and for the most part, it was not my cup of tea.

Very interestingly, Riveting “brings back” two pro blushes ($18.50): Full Fuchsia and Dirty Plum. In their original pro releases, Full Fuchsia was a Frost and Dirty Plum was a Matte. Now they’re both Satins (Dun dun DUN!) and they both seem to have a few (sparse) sparkles in them.

The four lipsticks in the collection ($14) are white-silver Metal Maven (Frost), purple-grey Riveting (Glaze), the repromoted Bubbles (a pearlescent white-pink Glaze last seen in Sugarsweet), and permanent-to-pro shade Show Orchid (Amplified Creme). It was a low-sun weekend, so I hope you’ll forgive my neglecting the repromoted shades.

Rock Out is a ton of silver sparkle. True Babe is a lipgloss to match Show Orchid.

My favorite part of the collection, however, is the matte nail polishes ($12). Some have said that MAC is late to jump on the matte polish bandwagon… I have to say that I haven’t liked matte nail polishes before these.

Studded is a matte silver. I was considering buying Orly’s Iron Butterfly (more charcoal/gunmetal)… but crossed it off my list I saw Studded. Wham, Bam, Glam, is an endlessly sexy brown-grey (a la Chanel Particuliere). Not swatched here is Black Enough?, a matte black. I don’t think the tape swatches do these shades justice, so more on this in a minute.
