MAC Bloggers' Obsession Collection - Jealousy Wakes Eyeshadow & All of My Purple Life

M∙A∙C Bloggers' Obsession Collection - Jealousy Wakes Eyeshadow & All of My Purple Life...

As stated before in the M∙A∙C Bloggers' Obsession Collection Information post, this collection hits close to my heart because it is centered around bloggers. A lot of the bloggers involved with the collaboration are new to me but I am happy to have now been introduced to them. I grabbed only two items from the collection which were the ones that appealed to me the most and coincidentally the ones I would have gotten either way - those were the two bloggers I was sure to support - Afrobella and Temptalia!

Temptalia or Christine is the super-blogger that got me started in makeup. My first online searches lead me to her website and I visit multiple times a day for my daily beauty dosage.

Afrobella or Patrice is a fellow West Indian with a great blog dedicated to all things beauty and natural hair. Her blog is one of the go to-s for darker skinned ladies. You go girl!


Highly-pigmented powder. Applies evenly, blends well.  
1.5 g / .05 oz 

Jealousy Wakes - Emerald green with teal and gold pearl
A unique lip gloss available in a wide variety of colours that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Tinted Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It's pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic colour. It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips. Tinted Lipglass is packaged in a convenient bottle with a sponge tip applicator that provides a quick, smooth, even application.
4.8 g / .17 oz  

All of My Purple Life - Deep purple with subtle sparkle
I won't go into pricing, packaging or purchasing since these are housed in the typical all back M∙A∙C Eyeshadow pot and Lipglass tube. The prices are the same as regular products but I must note that the items are only available ONLINE for purchase. Funny enough these two products were the first to be SOLD OUT but should be restocked soon according to some feedback from Temptalia.

Jealousy Wakes Eyeshadow is perfectly described as a emerald green with teal and gold pearl. It is a great vivid green color with a blue/teal sheen and subtle gold highlights. It has a Veluxe Pearl which great for pigmentation and application. The eyeshadow itself feels gritty against the skin when swatched but applies smoothly to the eyes. It's richly pigmented even without a primer and blends easily. If you love greens, you will definitely love this color. It may seem similar to other greens out there but the subtle nuances of teal and blue give it a certain umph. The finish is also not super frosty which makes it much more wearable on most skin tones and skin types. It may not be the most gorgeous and unique color but I personally am happy to have it in my collection.

All My Purple Life Lipglass is deep purple with subtle silvery pearl. It is highly pigmented and gives rich color in one swipe. Of course you will need to layer for full on, even color especially if you have pigmented lips. It's a unique color for my color because of it's depth. I do not own a purple gloss that is deep and rich in color. The wear time is 4-5 hours because it is a darker color. It will look great on darker skin tones but may take some work for lighter skin.

  4. When I saw the previews of the Bloggers' Obsession collection I knew I would love All of My Purple Life. I bought two and I'm so happy I did! I can see myself using this often. Way to go Afrobella!

  5. OMG! That lipglass is to die for!!! I'm so mad it is sold out already.

  6. we must have kindred spirits becuz i ordered the same 2 items u did, lol. plus a FREE AMPL tube (thnx mac) before it sold out the 2nd time but i did my review on it as well and u hit it on the head "it takes some work for lighter skin" i swear i thought it was only ME!! so i'll be giving my 2nd tube away :7 this looks great on darker complexions but it vamps me out wit my lighter skin. I opt for MUFE #19 rouge artist violet purply lipstick!! check out my post when u get a chance, its funny seein we have the similar thoughts on the 2, lol.
