Veluxe Pearlfusion shadow in "Brownluxe" available online here
MAC recently came out with these Veluxe Pearlfusion eyeshadow palettes for Summer 2013, as the newest addition to their permanent line. They cost €38 and are available in 6 different shades. "It’s eye shadow innovation like you’ve never seen before. A versatile powder that brings out the pigment’s pure and true colour. The result is a glamorous, creamy and lightweight hybrid offering two distinctive effects: applied wet for a super saturation of colour that glistens with metallic brilliance, or dry for sheer coverage with a soft, sparkling finish. Six palettes feature five complementary shades that glide on and blend beautifully for infinite day-to-night looks: Pinkluxe, Bleuluxe, Pastelluxe, Greenluxe, Smokeluxe and Brownluxe."
I picked up the color Brownluxe, a gorgeous neutral brown palette. Each palette contains 5 shades, a mix of shimmer and satin that go super well together. It has a creamy texture, completly different to their normal eyeshadows. They come in little quads that you get when you want to make your own palette, only the inside is different. Instead of 4 little compartments, you get 5 horizontal ones. When I started experimenting with this, I had glitter all over the place, on my clothes, under my eyes (even when holding a tissue underneath) and on my vanity. So do keep in mind that it can get a little messy. I used the eyeshadows dry for a more natural look, but you could use them wet as well, to get a more metallic finish. The blending was a bit tricky, some colors blend better then others, but in the end it all works out, it just takes up more time. I've been wearing this for about 5 hours now and so far the colors still look intense, and I don't see any hints of creasing. Perfect!
I think MAC did a really nice job adding these palettes to their collection. Something different to what they already have, yet with the same quality. Still hoping they come out with some more colors :)
