Swatches + Comparison: MAC It's a Strike 2016 Collection (300 Game, Bowl Out and Join My League Eyeshadows)

MAC Bowl Out Join My League 300 Game I'm Into It Eyeshadow Dupe Review Concrete Coquette Espresso Copperplate

MAC It's A Strike Eyeshadows (Limited Edition) - Each eyeshadow retails $16 and contains 1.5g/0.05oz of product. They're also very easy to depot and can be stored in an empty palette, such as the 12 Piece Interchangeable Palette, which can be purchased from Coastal Scents for $5.95.
  • 300 Game is a blackened cherry with a matte finish. Mac's I'm Into It and Makeup Geek's Cherry Cola are more of a reddish brown. I'm Into It and Cherry Cola look very similar to one another, except I'm Into It is slightly darker than Cherry Cola and looks more brown when heavily swatched. Deep Damson looks alot like 300 Game as both colors are more of a purplish burgundy. The only difference is that Deep Damson is slightly lighter, but when applied onto the eyes, they look essentially the same. Makeup Geek's Bitten is lighter, not as matte and pulls more red compared to 300 Game. 
    I use all of these shades the same way and as a pop of color in my crease when I want to spice up a neutral eye look.
  • Bowl Out is a midtone grey with a matte finish. It's not as light & grey as Copperplate and not as dark & brown as Join My League? and Concrete (review). Also, Coquette is definitely not a dupe as it looks more like a khaki shade compared to Bowl Out.
  • Join My League? is a dark espresso with a matte finish. It's not as warm as Espresso and looks most similar to Concrete, except Concrete is slightly lighter and pulls more grey. When blended into the crease, they look practically the same.
    I use Bowl Out, Join My League?, Coquette, Concrete and Espresso interchangeably. They are all great shades for defining the crease and creating depth.

Review + Comparison: Bdellium Tools BDHD Brushes and Morphe Elite II E58 (Marc Jacobs #2 Dupe?)

Marc Jacobs The Face II Sculpting Foundation Brush Review Dupe Morphe E58 Bdellium Tools BDHD

I've talked about the Marc Jacobs #2 brush (reviewcountless times on my blog because it really is one of my favorite brushes for applying thick and full coverage foundations. I love that (1) the bristles are densely packed, which makes blending a breeze, (2) it absorbs some of the product and prevents foundation from looking heavy & cakey, while still offering the coverage that I need, and (3) it's big enough to cover my entire face quickly, but not too big where it will be difficult to reach certain areas of the face. 

I'm constantly on the hunt for something that's comparable, so I can have a backup when the Marc Jacobs one is dirty. The Bdellium Tools BDHD brushes and Morphe Elite II E58 have an angled curved shape that's similar to the Marc Jacobs #2, but do they perform the same?

Swatches + Review: MAC Good Luck Trolls Glow Rida, I'm Into It Eyeshadow, Cremesheen Lipsticks + Pro Longwear Lip Pencils

MAC Creme Cup Modesty Fanfare Glow Rida I'm Into It Review

MAC Glow Rida Beauty Powder Good Luck Trolls Review

MAC Good Luck Trolls Beauty Powder in Glow Rida
(Limited Edition, $28 for 10g/0.35oz)

Color: It's a warm peachy beige that leaves a subtle glow to the skin. 

Formula + Application: The pigmentation is very sheer and works best as a highlighter for my NC30/35 skin tone. I recommend using a dense natural brush, such as the Sonia Kashuk #17 (comparison pictures), because dense natural hair tends to pick up and pack on powder products much easier.

I love pairing Glow Rida with matte blushes when I want a subtle sheen on my cheeks. It gives me just enough luminosity without looking too dewy or frosty for day-time office wear. 

Longevity: It lasts at least 8 hours without fading when worn over foundation + setting powder. (I don't have issues with products lasting on my cheeks in general. I also have cheeks that are neither dry nor oily.)
