MAC Manish!

I survived Fafi, I even survived Heatherette.  After missing out on that, I knew that I could resist any MAC attack.  But then it happened.  Manish Aurora happened.

It’s bright, its OTT, its totally fabulous.

The packaging is gorgeous!

Look! its orange!

Devil blush – a true bright tangerine with some shimmer.  I love this kind of colour, reminds me of Nars Taj Mahal

Kiss Manish – a shimmery cranberry type shade, like what your momma used to wear.  I definately don’t go for these kinds of colours but was swept away in the moment, I actually like it, its not too heavy.

Even the case is hot!

The shades are:

  • Nylon Pale gold with icy metallic shimmer (Frost)
  • Going Bananas Soft lemon yellow (Frost)
  • Playful Bright pink (Satin)
  • Bitter Vivid bright golden green flecked with shimmer (Velvet)
  • Electric Eel Vivid bright blue flecked with shimmer (Satin)
  • Deep Truth Real dark blue (Frost)

Does Electric Eel appear in every MAC palette? Hmmm. I don’t have many and I have that shade in 2 other palettes (A-Mei and an Xmas one with jewels on the top).

The lighter shades in the palette in my opinion are a bit too chalky and sheer.  Buildable I guess, but if your gonna give me bright, then give me BRIGHT and PIGMENTED.  Devil blush is as nice as I thought it would be! its more of a true orange than Nars Taj Mahal, but I like it!  I also like both the lip and gloss – strong oranges and I’m a real orange lover.  I don’t know when I will actually get round to wearing them though, without looking like I’ve been let out from the mental asylum for the day.

I think its completely sold out on the US site and some things are still in on the UK site.
