MAC Spellbinder Shadow Retrograde Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

I’m continuing my review series of MAC Spellbinder Shadows launching for Fall 2016 with a new gorgeous shade MAC Retrograde Spellbinder. Previously I reviewed shades like MAC Higher Power Spellbinder Shadow or MAC Mysterious Influence Spellbinder Shadow so go check out those as well if you want. I got four out of eight available shades and I will probably purchase some more over the future mostly because you guys asked me to review as many shades as possible. Not all the shades are right up my alley but so far from what I’ve tested I can say they all have an amazing texture and formula and they are very pigmented. Keep on reading for more details, photos and a quick video.

Spellbinder Fall Makeup Look

Hello beauties!

I bet you already know by now how obsessed I’m with the new MAC Spellbinder Eyeshadows (live swatches, video) that I purchased a few weeks back. When I posted individual reviews I promised to return with makeup looks and tutorials inspired by each of the new MAC Spellbinder eyeshadows (preview, photos) so today I give you MAC Spellbinder Mysterious Influence Look. As a green eyed girl I rarely reach for green eyeshadows but I had to put my new MAC metallic pigment to good use. Right bellow the fold you’ll find the list and reviews of the products used for this look.

I also want to let you know that today I made a big change regarding my hair color and I’m sure you’ll notice it in my upcoming makeup looks. I dyed my hair for the first time, actually lighten up some parts of my hair and choose the ecaille technique for that. You can check out my Instagram account to see how everything turned out until I’ll post more photos in my upcoming looks.

MAC Vamplify 2016 Fall Collection

Hello beauties!

MAC Vamplify Glosses will be back next month with new shades. I’m super excited about this launch since I consider that Vamplify has the best formula of an intense gloss. When the first hit counters last year I did live swatches of MAC Vamplify and choose two shades. I would have bought more but some of those gorgeous and hot pinks were already sold out. I’ll not let these new shades pass me by this time and I’ll be at MAC counters right on the day of the launch. The collection will feature some of the best-selling repromote shades as well as new ones so this is a chance to get your old favorite shades. Take a closer look and choose your favorites!

M∙A∙C Vamplify is back. Seven new hues join the potent lineup: deep turquoise blue, smoky stone, perfect periwinkle, violet-tinged mocha, rich cocoa, dusky rose and intense true red, each loading lips with that same delicious shine. Now there’s more vamp than ever.
