I dont know what I was expecting maybe some nude earthy beautiful masterpiece but I was underwhelmed and disappointed. The lip gelee's were too gritty for me, In person I didnt like the paint pots OR the lipsticks and the highlight powders just didnt do it for me. The only things I liked were the lip conditioner and eyeliner so, that's what I got!
MAC RELEASED 2 LIP CONDITONERS WITH THE CHAMPALE COLLECTION. ONE IS CALM MODE A NEUTRAL PINK AND THE OTHER IS JUST A NO COLOR ONE THEY BOTH RETAIL FOR $14.50 FOR 0.5 FL OZ. I OF COURSE GOT THE PINK ONE, I DONT DO CLEAR. LIKE I SAID BEFORE CALM MODE IS A NEUTRAL PINK WITH A SLIGHT SMELL OF VANILLA AND A LITTLE BIT OF SOMETHING ELSE EVEN THOUGH I DONT REALLY KNOW WHAT IT IS. IT'S A REALLY SUBTLE COLOR ON LIPS UNLESS YOURS ARE REALY DARK. MINE ARE A LIGHT PINK SO WHEN I PUT THIS ON IT LOOKS LIKE MY LIP COLOR JUST A BIT BETTER OF COURSE.
I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T LIKE POTTED BALMS BUT I DON'T REALLY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THEM JUST MAKE SURE YOUR FINGERS ARE CLEAN OR ELSE YOUR LOOKING AT A HAVEN OF BACTERIA -YUCK!!- TO BE QUITE HONEST I HATE THE WAY THIS ONE TASTES, KIND OF LIKE A PLANT BUT, THIS ISN'T MEANT TO BE EATEN SO I GUESS I SHOULD STOP LICKING MY LIPS. THIS USUALLY STAYS ON MY LIPS FOR A GOOD 2-3 HOURS BEFORE I HAVE TO REAPPLY. I WOULD DEFINETLY RECOMMEND THIS IF YOU LIKE POTTED LIP BALMS AND DONT MIND THE OCCASIONAL YUCK FACE WHEN YOU LICK YOUR LIPS :)
MAC RELEASED 4 EYELINERS WITH THE CHAMPALE COLLECTION SINCE I HATED EVERYTHING ELSE I WENT WITH FELINE EYE KOHL. FELINE IS A RICH BLACK PROBABLY ONE OF THE DARKEST ONES I'VE SEEN IT'S $14.50 FOR 0.05 OZ. THIS LASTED ALL DAY ON MY LID WITHOUT ME HAVING TO FIX ANYTHING BUT THE WATERLINE IS ANOTHER STORY.
I'M SURE EVERY GIRLS KNOWS HOW BIG OF A BITCH THE WATERLINE CAN BE. I MEAN NOTHING EVER STAYS PUT AND THIS DEFINETLY DIDN'T. AFTER ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF TO MAYBE TWO HOURS IT WAS SMUDGING UNDER MY EYE. SO I HAD TO CONSTANTLY CHECK THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND EVERYTIME THERE WAS THE DREADFUL SMUDGING!!! SAFE TO SAY I LEARNED MY LESSON AND NO MORE WATERLINE FOR MR. FELINE . IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A DEEP DARK BLACK I'D RECOMMEND THIS IT WORKS GREAT ON YOUR LID AND IS EASILY SMUDGEABLE IF YOUR INTO THAT, JUST WATCH OUT FOR YOUR WATERLINE AND AWAYS KEEP A MIRROR ON YOU :)
