MAC Taste Temptation Swatches

MAC Taste Temptation
MAC Taste Temptation Quad: Look At The Eyes, Stay Sultry, Naval (PRO), Carbon (perm) eyeshadow swatches
MAC Taste Temptation Blushes: Unconventional and Passionately Tempted Blush Swatches
MAC Taste Temptation Nocturnal Instinct, Seductive Intent, Night Blooming Mattenes. MAC Taste Temptation Good Times, Perky, Revenge Is Sweet Lipglass. MAC Fluidline Macroviolet and Waveline swatches.

MAC Taste Temptation Quad:

 Look At the Eyes is a silvery lilac color very similar to mac Crystal Eye shadow.
Stay Sultry is very similar to MAC's LE Thunder shade. *note, there has been 2 previous thunder shades. One was pink, one was a bluish purple.
Naval is a permanent pro shade with a great buttery texture and pigmentation
Carbon is a permanent shade as well.

MAC Taste Temptation Lipglasses: 

Good Times is a pale greyish lavendar color. It does not suit me.
Perky is a lovely pinkish lavendar with pearlized pigments.
Revenge Is Sweet is a pinkish purple that is very sheer. I layered a lot of product in this swatch so that you can see it's color, however, upon first swatch, it's basically clear with a tinge of pink. Not worth getting in my opinion. Perky is definitely the nicest of the bunch.

MAC Taste Temptation Mattenes:

Mattenes are by far my favorite mac lipstick finish ever. I was so happy to see they were bringing a few into this collection. All three shades are lovely and very opaque with a matte-satin finish.

MAC Taste Temptation Blushes:

Unconventional is a pale pinkish lavender shade that would probably suit nw15-nw25 and nc15-nc30 skintones the best. It may look chalky on skin tones darker than that. Otherwise, it's a beautiful color with a slight sheen (despite being named a frost finish by mac)
Passionately Tempted is extremely pigmented and is a muted magenta color. Because it's so pigmented, it's a little harder to work with and blend. Good for all skin tones, even lighter skintones. Can be used with a light hand if you're worried it's too dark.
