Is there anything more enduring (besides love and heartbreak) than denim? Jeanius is a celebration of the journey – country cousin to haute couture – the whole world wanted to go on since America made it a national obsession. Since tooth-and-nail workwear jumped the pond in farmer’s overalls to gussy up in the glam of the great Paris couture houses…France may take the credit for creating it in 18th-century Nimes (de Nîmes = DeNim), but bright young American women took it higher! M∙A∙C keeps up with a Jeanius collection of moody blues and indigo ink, the quantum of modern cool, with four new limited-life denimized Eye Shadows, along with NEW limited-life shades of Lipstick, Lipglass, Blush and Biker Blue & Frayed to Order Nail Lacquer. Like the faux-metal “snap” on the Eye Shadow…completely riveting.
Acid Washed, Riveting Rose
Acid Washed: Grayish beige with gold pearl (glaze)
Riveting Rose: Deep burgundy with blue pearl (frost)
Painted On Lipglass: Grayish beige with gold pearl
Acid Washed, being a glaze, is quite sheer, and you can feel a bit of a grit with this lipstick from the glitter particles in the lipstick. I applied a generous amount on my lips to get it how it is in the lip swatch photo. That being said, I do like how it looks layered with Painted on, but that’s probably because it’s basically the same color but in gloss form.
Riveting Rose is pretty, but quite dark for me. I love that its blue toned, and I love the shimmer in it. I feel like it would look better with a lipliner, or maybe applied with a brush.
These are available for $14.50 from MAC Cosmetics March 3rd.
