Swatches & Review – MAC Greasepaint Stick – B


Every once in a while, MAC releases a new product/product type. This time, it’s the greasepaint sticks and I was able to get my hands on B, one of the three available.

MAC:

A smooth and creamy black eye crayon with an opalescent sparkle finish specially formulated for maximum drama. Easily provides ultra-high-level coverage. Versatile. Use as a soft but intense liner or blend out to create a smoke-like shadow. Long-wearing. Transfer and water-resistant.

Quick thoughts:

– They were released with the recent DSquared collection.
– Packaging wise, they’re similar to MAC’s current shadesticks.
– Available in:
*B: Bright yellow blue
*V: Bright blue violet
*Black: Intense black
– Retails for $17.50USD/$38AUD
– Really smooth to apply and easy to build intensity.
– Once it’s dried, it becomes a bit ‘tacky’ to touch.
– Budge proof once you give it a few seconds to adhere to skin and dry.

I like your thinking MAC. You included a lil sharpener at one end 😉 Great for when you wanna use the greasepaint stick as an eyeliner.


Isn’t it just gorgeous?!

And now, let’s compare the colour to some other blues from MAC:



There’s a good similarity between Flashtrack and a swipe of the greasepaint stick in B. However, the greasepaint stick has more intensity.

And finally, it’s awesomeness!

Didn’t. Even. Move.
