Make Up For Ever Midnight Glow Holiday Collection

Isn't it exciting that Holiday Collection from various brands are slowly rolling out? Including Make Up For Ever as they will be launching their Midnight Glow Holiday Collection (reason of this post).

The festive collection is one of the reasons why I love Christmas.... Well, I love everything about Christmas (mostly the commerical wise of this holiday)... like Christmas songs, the sparkling festive decoration, shopping, Christmas' movies and not forgetting that we can use this as an excuse to feast, buy gifts, get together with friends and family just to do random silly BUT fun stuff!

Anyway, back to the subject.. I will be featuring 2 item from Make Up For Ever Midnight Glow Holiday Collection - The Midnight glow palette (SD$75) and Aqua rouge Shimmering lips (SD$40). The collection will be available at all Sephora and Make Up For Ever Pro Loft.

Make Up For Ever Midnight Glow Palette
Price : SD$75

The palette is the same size of the previous limited edition Sepia blue palette(link)

As the star product for Midnight Glow, Dany’s new palette reinterprets the new MAKE UP FOR EVER logo for the holiday season. New formulas play with transparency in new ways! The texture of these long-wearing eye shadows, which contains mostly of mother-of-pearl particles, now comes in cool new hues that produce a transparent finish on the skin and blend seamlessly for radiant shine and a diamond finish.

"What you see is more of the idea of a color than the color itself. The one thing that comes through clearly is light. Even the metallic shadow is translucent: everyone can wear it, regardless of age, look, or skin tone. It’s impossible to go wrong with this texture, whether or not you’re a professional make-up artist: its transparent iridescence never adds too much color, which makes it very wearable for a special event or even in everyday life,” emphasizes Dany.

The extreme brilliance and ultra-long-lasting results are made possible by a new formula that combines two specific elements: micronized pigments, together with spherical and lamellar powders. An incredibly silky texture surrounds the eyes with a veil of light and gives them a velvety feel.

Along with the 2 key shades, Gun Metal and Gold Pink, the palette offers a total of 8 colors,  including 6 new shades: Snow White, Midnight Purple, Urban Icy Blue, and Icy Pink, Matte Black and Metallic Taupe. 

Ingredients list

This palette included 2 small brushes made of synthetic fibers. One is designed for  precise application of eye color on the eyelids, and the other is used to create a gradient or emphasize the crease.

Close up (with swatches)

Snow white is a glittery shade, not those chunky and chalky type of texture and the white doesn't look as flat... this can be layer on top of deeper color to give alittle more dimension. (One of my fave shade)

Gunmetal is a mixture of shimmers and frosty finished, creamy and very pigmented. (Super love this shade)

Icy blue a sheer frost pale blue which doesn't feel chalky at all.

Icy pink is glittery shade (same as snow white) the glitters doesn't feel too chunky and powdery. The soft finishing look really good as a lid color or on top of a deeper shade.

Black is a smooth and pigmented matte black

Gold pink is a mixture of frosty and shimmers.. not as creamy but doesn't feel chalky either. (One of my fave in the palette.)

The matellic taupe is really smooth, satin finishing - creamy and smooth texture.

Midnight purple is a mixture of frosty and shimmers (pigmented and smooth), The shimmers doesn't feel too chunky and powdery. (One of my fave shade)

I will be doing a look using this palette on another post (coming up soon)

Midnight Glow Aqua rouge Shimmering lips 
Price : SD$40

This look has another delicious surprise in store: a "diamond" effect that adds a new twist to Aqua Rouge for even brighter lips.

This iconic waterproof lipstick, known for its long-wearing results and comfortable application, now comes in a new, natural Satin Pink tone paired with a transparent, pearlescent top coat.

“Give your lips the same treatment as your eyes! It’s perfect for those times when you want to change your make-up but still keep it subtle. Have the delicate, shiny lips you want, and by adding multiple  layers of gloss, you can adjust the impact of how glossy you want it to be,” explains Dany.

The gloss is shimmery
