MAC Vibe Tribe Powder Blush in "Modern Mandarin"
MAC Vibe Tribe Powder Blush in "Modern Mandarin" ($27.50 CAD):
Packaged in a round light tan compact printed with a gorgeous semi see-through tribal pattern, the Vibe Tribe Powder Blush in "Modern Mandarin" is a soft peach with a subtle sheen and no visible shimmers. The color looks super soft in the pan but when swatched, it's quite an intense and vibrant peach. The pigmentation is excellent and the texture is soft and velvety.

MAC Vibe Tribe Lustre Lipstick in "Pure Vanity"
MAC Vibe Tribe Lustre Lipstick in "Pure Vanity" ($22.50 CAD):
Housed in a colorful tribal print and sandy nude packaging, "Pure Vanity" is a pastel peach sheen. I'm not sure why this shade is referred to as a "lustre" as it definitely has more of a "cremesheen" finish. Unfortunately, the formulation is very difficult to work with. The pigmentation is fairly sheer and the patchy coverage accentuates every wrinkle and dry patch.

MAC Tribe Vibe TechnaKohl Liner in "Snowed In"
TechnaKohl Liner in "Snowed In" ($21.50 CAD):
A soft shimmery off-white twist-up liner, TechnaKohl Liner in "Snowed In" has a very creamy and pigmented formulation. The color glides smoothly on the skin but the product doesn't cling very well to the lids. The formulation (for whatever reason) also does not set completely, making it super prone to smudging unless you top it with a powder shadow, but that just seems counterintuitive given how pretty its shimmers are. Additionally, do be careful with the application as the formulation of this pencil is quite soft; only twist up very little or you might risk breaking off the tip.
