New Collection: MAC Style Warrior

Whoa. MAC Style Warrior is quite the comprehensive collection, isn't it? We've already talked about a couple of items in this collection (Solar Riche bronzer and Peaceable nail lacquer), so let's take a look at the rest of the goodies up for grabs in this limited edition collection. Click the image above to enlarge and get a better look at everything.

The five eyeshadows range from neutral to super bright; yellow gold Bright Future and purple Vibrant Grape are the strongest. I wouldn't wear these, but I'm betting they'd work well on darker skin tones. (And if you're looking to save a few bucks, check out L'Oreal HIP Bright Duo in Flamboyant, which has two lookalike shades for about $8).

In the Lipglass category, Gold Rebel was a pleasant surprise. It's a shimmery peach copper, which I thought would look hideously orange on me, but I actually liked it. It seemed to give me blue eyes an aqua cast -- I'll take it!

Of the lipsticks, I'm liking the frosty violet Purple Rite. And Brave New Bronze, described as a creamy mid-tone pink nude, sounded promising, but in reality it looks like just about every other pinky nude out there - nothing special.

Solar Bits are back in this collection, but I've never really been a fan. They're a little messy and I just don't love the texture, so I say skip.

I'm really loving the Lustre Drops, though, a pearly liquid highlighter available in three shades. Pink Rebel is a cool-toned pink with gold pearl, and looks gorgeous dotted on apples of cheeks - alone, or over bronzer. Gives you that perfect, healthy California girl look for the summer.

Finally, Skinsheen is back! I reviewed this body bronzer last year and I'm happy to see it on counters again.
