I’ve been fortunate enough to receivve some of the new collection from MAC called “Good Luck Trolls”, an ode to those ubiquitous trolls we all knew and loved, with fuzzy neon hair and jewels in their umbilicus.
The first thing I swatched was the beauty powder in “Glow Rida” and while it doesn’t swatch as a shimmer or show up very much at all, it’s meant to be worn all over the face as a glow-inducing powder. It’s very nice but requires the right brush since it isn’t super powdery. I love the bright pink packaging.
Next up is a satin lipstick called “Sushi Kiss” — which, first of all, love the name! I also love the color, it’s a pastel neon true orange and swatches very nicely. It might be hard to match with all skin tones so I think this would be best on olive undertones.
The three eyeshadows are beautiful, but somewhat sheer and not as pigmented as I’m used to with MAC eyeshadows. I particularly loved Paradisco for its pastel peachy shimmer, and Silly Vanilly as a nice vanilla color. I could see these being used together. I did not particularly like Suns Out, Buns Out on my skintone as it is a true gold with olive undertones, but it would be so gorgeous on deeper skintones!
Lastly, the lipgloss is Saint Germain, a repromote, and I do own some lipglasses but find them sticky on my lips–still, I adore this packaging and will definitely keep it around!

My favorites are the lipstick, beauty powder, and the two of the three eyeshadows I mentioned.
