The MAC Sharon & Kelly Osbourne Collection for Summer 2014: Kelly’s Eyes and Cheeks

Things I know about Kelly Osbourne…

  1. I saw her guest host a fashion show once (I think it was with Joan Rivers), and she seemed very sassy, like a regular sassy-pants girl.
  2. She appears to be funny and good at banter.
  3. I know that the purple hair she’s rocking these days is totally working for her in a cool, Dorothy Zbornak kind of way, and it makes me want purple hair…but I figure that I’m just going to wait for my hair to turn gray first, and then I’ll take it from there.
  4. I’ve read that she has a penchant for, um, colorful language.
  5. I know that she’s Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter, and that makes me wonder what Halloweens at their house were like, and what she’s getting him for Father’s Day (maybe one of the her MAC Kelly Osbourne eyeliners, perhaps?).
  6. I know that she has a reputation for being edgy and fashionable, and I can see that edge in her products from the MAC Sharon & Kelly Osbourne collection.

The MAC Sharon & Kelly Osbourne Kelly sub-collection products (not including the two brushes)

Strutting down the runway first are the eyeshadows, eyeliners, and cheek and face products from the Kelly sub-collection of the mother-daughter MAC Sharon & Kelly Osbourne collection for summer 2014 (stay tuned for the four lipsticks and single lip liner in a few).



Like ice is to fire, these are cool! — as in cooler-toned than the colors in momma Sharon’s part of the release.

I get the sense that Kelly is a long-time MAC fan, since some of the re-promoted pieces, and there are a few, are products I love, too, like Smolder, Soba and Brun. The two eyeliners, and the eyeshadows in the duo, as well as one of the shadows in the quad, are re-promotes.

See the purple packaging? It’s like Kelly’s hair, and her signature graces each of the pieces.

Nice handwriting, by the way. :) I like how she writes her ‘K.’

The MAC Kelly Osbourne Bloody Brilliant Quad and Morning Mister Magpie Eye Shadow Duo

Good Morning Mister Magpie! I see that your duo has two re-promoted shadows (Soba and Brun).

Except that these versions look a little odd to me…

Not in a bad way. Just different.

I mean, I know both of these bad boys like the back of my hand (Get it? Bad swatch pun…) because I wear them a ton. Soba is one of my everyday neutral browns, and I use Brun to fill in my brows every single day.

But the Soba here seems more golden to me than the Soba I know, like it’s Soba’s second cousin or something. Brun looks a little different, too, but only in its pan, where I swear it looks gray.

Weirdly, it swatches the same.

The Bloody Brilliant Quad also has a re-promoted product of its own — Shadowy Lady (a matte blackened plum).

MAC Sharon and Kelly Osbourne collectionBased on Kelly’s eyes in the promo pic, I was hoping for a bloody brilliant purple in the quad, or maybe a bloody brilliant coral, because her eyes look bad-@ss! It looks like there’s a warm coral in the crease and a bright, intense purple along her lower lash line, and when I saw that pic, I thought, “Yes! I want to go to there.”

But after playing with the quad this week, I don’t know… I just wanted more intensity. Maybe it’s because of our different skin tones, but I feel like the quad’s colors don’t look as good on me as they do on Kelly in the promo pic.

Also, there’s the way the shadows feel. Compared to the shadows in Sharon’s quad, these feel slightly harder to me and are consequently a little tougher to blend. Not sure why.

The MAC Kelly Osbourne Powder Blush in Cheeky Bugger and Mineralize Skinfinish Duo in Jolly Good

Among Kelly’s cheek and face products, the Mineralize Skinfinish Duo in Jolly Good seems the most special. The tan powder in the duo is too light for me to use a bronzer or contouring powder, so I use it as a highlighter. It has this really beautiful pinkish beige (a lot like Hourglass Dim Light)

I think if you’re a lighter lass, however, you’ll be able to rock it in more ways — as a bronzer, contouring powder, you name it.

Kelly’s blush, Cheeky Bugger, doesn’t really set my world on fire, but it sure lasts a long time. Easily all day long.

The MAC Kelly Osbourne Eye Kohl in Smolder and Jumbo Penultimate (liner) in Rapidblack

Good ol’ MAC Smolder. Hard to go wrong with this tried-and-true basic black. I wore it all through last winter when every other black liner irritated the heck out of my water lines.

But really, did they need to re-promote it? You can get it in the permanent line any old day.

Jumbo Penultimate in Rapidblack has popped up in previous limited edition releases before, and has always been a pain in my butt.

Maybe I just have small weirdo fingers, but I can’t hold it correctly for some reason. I just think it’s hard to use. The felt tip doesn’t have a lot of give, and I can’t draw a straight line with it. Not my favorite.

    Love the eye look you create with the quad! I like Tickety Boo and Fizzy Rose, but the two other colors in the quad don’t seem interesting…

    • Karen says:

      Yeah, the quad’s just a’ight. Now, if it had a coral up in there…

      How was your day? It’s almost 7 here and Tabs still has me working LOL.

  2. Icequeen81 says:

    The shades look great on you

  3. ru laroux says:

    i love it ! but what annoys me is that its out two months earlier for america than the uk (international). this means that me and the other uk beauty bloggers cant get reviews up for our american fans.

    anyway thanks for the swatches, you look amazing !.

  4. shana says:

    Wait, I just noticed this…did they move the date up to the 2nd now? I know it was the 5th before.

  5. Agata says:

    The look you created is gorgeous! And that cat liner is so perfect. But I have to admit I’m a little disappointed in that quad, it looks so pretty on Kelly.

  6. Anna says:

    Thank you for your great posts! I am disappointed in the quads overall. They are so…safe. I hope Kelly’s lipsticks steal the show. I just hope they’re not too white-based. The MSF duos look ok… I wish the highlighter portions were larger!

  7. Stephanie says:

    So cute !!!! I want some lipsticks and the jumbo liner !!

  8. Claire says:

    I actually like the packaging … I think, haha. I love lavender. The eyeshadow quad a nice colour combo too bad it is not that pigmented. I am curious about the lipsticks though.

    I really like the packaging of her collection! It’s gorgeous! I’ll just end up with a couple of her lipsticks though. This side seems to be more pale gal friendly

    You’re rocking an absolutely fabulous look with these, Karen! For my part, nothing really excited me here. I was hoping for more purple based on the promo image too!

  12. Judith says:

    Thanks for the thorough review. I’m a bit disappointed by the eyeshadow quad, but I love both cheek products, perfect for my NC15 skin tone!

    I bought the eyeshadow quad, and I haven’t used it yet, and I don’t know how I feel about it yet. I swatched it, and the colors weren’t really that pigmented on my fingers or anything. But I saw this look that you did with it, and I was wondering if you could post a tutorial or something on it. Because I’m mesmerized with how it looks on you. You’re so beautiful. :)

  16. Heather says:

    Do you have any comparable shades in your collection to the colors in the Bloody Brilliant quad? I’ve heard that Quarry is similar to Tickety Boo and Digit is similar to Fizzy Rose.
