Yesterday, I looked at the nail effects from the Antiquitease collection. Today I cover the rest! The collection is available beginning today, October 18, 2007!
I normally don’t like to think about the holidays before Halloween, but this entire collection is amazing and it definitely put this makeup lover in a holiday mood! I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview when I went backstage with M.A.C. before the first Chicago Fashion week show, so I decided to put a bit of extra effort into getting some photos out there of the shades that I have! Plus I really wanted to play with the colors! For the eyes, the collection features the following mineralize eyeshadow duos:
Silversmith: A silver blue with dirty mid-tone blue and white veining (frost)
Earthly Riches: A deep plum and dirty deep grey with pink veining (frost)
Engaging: A pinky beige and yellow gold with rose veining (frost)
Family Silver: A dirty light silver and mid-tone
Mi’ Lady: An intense blood red and rich purple with white veining (frost)
Because the mineralize colors work so well blended and have some blending already going on in the case, I didn’t try to swatch each side of the duos separately. Instead, I went ahead and blended them for the below photo. The colors can be used without mixing though and are pretty true to how they look in the case when that is done.

The collection also has a nice set of three pigments, which are quite light and sheer when used dry, and become darker and more brilliant when wet. They are also quite true to how they appear in the pot. From left to right below are:
Sweet Sienna : A dirty brown with grey pearl
Gold Stroke: A mid-tone chocolate brown with red pearl
Your Ladyship Creamy white with gold pearl
In addition to the shadows and pigments, the collection includes a gorgeous gold eyeliner and features M.A.C. Fibre Rich Lash Mascara. For the lips, there are a number of very pretty shimmery lipsticks and a set of lipglass shades, described as follows:
Gilty Kiss: Yellow gold with gold pearl (frost)
Her Fancy: Sheer light pink with gold pearl (frost)
Antiquitease: Copper with red pearl (frost)
Queen’s Sin: Intense red with red pearl (frost)
Budding Lust: Deep neutral plum (frost)
Red Romp: Mid-tone red with red pearl (frost)
Corsette: Dirty grey brown with gold pearl (frost)
Trifle: White pink with pink pearl (frost)
Majestic: Yellow gold with gold pearl (frost)
