MAC is Beauty Collection Cremesheen Glass in "Japanese Spring" & Eye Shadow in "Wow Factor": Review and Swatches
New for Spring 2015, MAC has released a MAC is Beauty Collection full of soft and pastel hues perfect for the pleasant and lovely weather ahead. Today I have a soft lavender Cremesheen Glass ($23 CAD) and a Single Eye Shadow ($19 CAD) from the collection to share with you. To see some swatches, click......
Packaging: 
The Cremesheen Glass comes in a clear acrylic gloss tube with a standard doe-foot applicator. The shadow comes in a simple black round compact.

Formulation:
The Cremesheen Glass in "Japanese Garden" has a semi-sheer formulation with a milky soft lavender pink pigmentation. It is a simple gloss with a moisturizing but slightly sticky formulation. The shade is suitable for those with very pale lips as the pale lavender shade will settle in the fine lines and appear more patchy on pigmented lips.
The purple shadow "Wow Factor" is very sheer with a slightly satin-y matte finish. It would work nicely on its own as an all over shade but I do wish it had more pigmentation. The swatches below was about seven or so swipes of the color.

Overall:
Both shades are sheer and pale, good for those with fair skin. In terms of formulation, the shadow is a bit too sheer for my liking but the gloss is protective and moisturizing, albeit a tad sticky.

Availability:
The Mac is Beauty Collection is available April 2nd.
