MAC x Patrick Starrr Collection ReviewMAC ended 2017 with a bang with their collab with beauty guru Patrick Starrr. The collection is cohesive and wearable, boasting Patrick’s philosophy that “makeup is a one-size-fits-all”. Plus the packaging is so chic!

MAC sent me all of the products in this collab, so I wanted to share my thoughts on everything. The collection contains a matte setting powder, two eyeshadow quads, three lip pencils, three lipsticks, and three lip glosses. The lip products coordinate with one another, which I love.

Set Powder

What it is: “a specially packaged colourless powder that can be used on either the face or body to set makeup.”

→Available at MAC, Nordstrom, Ulta, Macy’s for $34 USD

There is just a hint of color to the powder, but translates as invisible on my fair skin. It is incredibly silky and smooth, leaving skin matte without a powdery look.MAC x Patrick Starrr Set Powder Review

Eye Shadow x 4

What it is: “a palette of four brown-toned or gold-toned Eye Shadows.”

→Available at MAC, Nordstrom, Ulta, Macy’s for $32 USD

The two eyeshadow quads are called Glam AF and Goalgetter. Each quad has three permanent MAC shadows, plus one shade that Patrick Starrr helped develop and name.

Glam AF:

Brule – Soft creamy beige

OMIGAUD – Soft peach pink (Patrick’s shade)

Saddle – Golden orange brown

Embark – Intense reddish brown

Goalgetter:

Amber Lights – Peachy brown with shimmer

Soft Brown – Soft golden peachy brown

Swiss Chocolate – Muted reddish brown

I’m Into It – Dark red brown (Patrick’s shade)

The two quads are neutral, nice for everyday. I’ve actually used most of the permanent shades before, and really enjoy them. Of the two quads, I prefer Glam AF, mainly because Patrick’s shade OMIGAUD is gorrrrgeous. I was worried about I’m Into It (from the Goalgetter quad) because of how it swatched, but it actually performs really well.

I’ve been using both quads in tandem during my holiday travels for a perfect neutral eye each day. The shades are incredibly easy to use and blend!

Lipstick

What it is: “a special-edition Lipstick in three hues and two textures.”

→Available at MAC, Nordstrom, Ulta, Macy’s for $17.50 USD

There are three shades:

Mamastarrr – reddish brown (satin)

Patrick Woo – deep yellow-red (matte)

She Betta Werrrk – soft pink (matte)

MAC x Patrick Starrr Lipsticks Review

I like the colors a lot! Mamastarrr is a beautiful nude. Patrick Woo (love the name) is the perfect statement red that I’m wearing during the holiday season. She Betta Werrrk is pretty, but doesn’t quite suit me very well.

I did some swatch comparisons of the MAC lipsticks in my collection to the lipsticks in this collab. Mamastarrr is quite similar to Taupe, just a hair lighter, so I think it’s a solid dupe. Ruby Woo and Patrick Woo are similar as well, but Ruby Woo is more of a bluish red. I actually didn’t have any reasonable dupes for She Betta Werrrk. It kind of seems like what would happen if Blankety and Brave had a baby.

Lipglass

What it is: “a gloss in three shades that can create a glass-like finish or a subtle sheen.”

→Available at MAC, Nordstrom, Ulta, Macy’s for $17 USD

The three Lipglasses coordinate with the lipstick shades and have the same names, though with different descriptions:

Mamastarrr – pink cinnamon

Patrick Woo – intense bluish-red

She Betta Werrrk – light warm pink

These glosses are really beautiful. They pair well with the lipsticks or liners, but work well alone too.

Lip Pencil

What it is: “a pencil in three colours designed for shaping, lining or filling in lips.”

→Available at MAC, Nordstrom, Ulta, Macy’s for $17.50 USD

Again, the three Lip Pencils coordinate to the other lip products in the collection:

Brick – intense golden red

Edge to Edge – midtone dirty blue pink

Mahogany – intense reddish brown

MAC x Patrick Starrr Lip Pencil Review

All three shades are part of the permanent collection, but retail for the same price with the special packaging. I love MAC Lip Pencils – they last well and help prevent lipsticks from feathering.

Following are the lip products in the collection altogether; they do really work well as trios.
