MAC Chill Collection: Review, Photo Swatches

MAC Chill Collection

As the temperature drops, a new beauty barometer shows you the season's hot new cool. Light snowflake lips of Naked Frost. Eyes sculpted in Arctic Grey, warmed with deep black velvety strokes of new Penultimate Eye Liner. The season is right. Chill

Overall, MAC's Chill colllection was disappionting and left the store empty handed.  Most eye shadows had poor color pay-off and a chalky base texture that took several swipes to achieve a true color.  Artic Grey was one of the worthwhile shades, but still lacked that "ooh-ahh" in color pay-off.

The lipglass colors were fairly sheer and frosty.  Just didn't appeal to my skintone, but are pretty espically topped over a lipstick rather than worn alone.  All in all, if your looking to save a little money with the holidays just passing, it may be a good call to pass on the Chill collection.

Check out the photo swatches below.

I didn't get anything from this collection...just haven't been feeling it lately. I'm more taken with things like the Moscou nail collection and stuff like that!!!! I think you may have misplaced the Vellum and Wintersky labels. Vellum is definitely the one second from the left.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on amazon.com.

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
