MAC is Beauty Collection

MAC is Beauty Collection

Every now and then MAC launch a new collection and the visuals stop me dead in my tracks, MAC is Beauty is one such line up that did just that. An array of products that have been inspired by retro beauty salons and old school glamour. If you enjoy wearable pops of colour, teamed with pretty pastels then you won't want to let this limited edition range pass you by. I was kindly sent three items to try out but may well go back for the lipsticks in the shades Catty and French Twist.

MAC Lipstick in Diva-ish £15.50
Fans of MAC Girl About Town will most likely make a bee line for this shade, a deep yet bright pink that has a strong blue undertone. The amplified finish means that this is more than pigmented and will offer enough colour saturation even for the deepest complexions. It glides on to the lips with ease, is comfortable to wear with a slight sheen that helps to give the appearance of fuller lips. The added bonus of the blue undertone is that it creates the illusion of whiter teeth. In my opinion this is the older, bolder and somewhat easier to wear elder sister of MAC Girl About Town. I found the average wear time per application is around two to three hours, as it is a very creamy lipstick it does have a little slip so you may want to team with a liner to prevent feathering/bleeding.

MAC Cremesheen Glass in Japanese Spring £17.50
Although not a huge lip gloss fan I do have to say that the shade of MAC Cremesheen Glass in Japanese Spring is easily one of the most beautiful I've come across in a long while. A light, blue tinged pink that does translate almost lilac on the lips. Admittedly the pigmentation is what you'd expect - a little sheer but on par with the majority of glosses. The good news is that although a little sticky (again what gloss isn't,  it is moisturising and as a little milky in tone it is ideal for layering over just about any pink lipstick as well as wearing alone. The sticky texture does result in a prolonged wear time -around three hours per application with the added bonus of a little hydration to boot.

MAC Fluidline in Brassy £15.50
Typically when purchasing eye liners of any type I play it very safe - neutral or black and along comes MAC Fluidline in Brassy changing my opinion of gold eye products for ever. This bright, true gold is almost like molten metal, brightening and opening the eyes with next to no effort on the users part. The beauty of this shade and formula for this matter means it can be used as a liner, an eyeshadow or a base product - who doesn't love bang for their buck? As you may know the MAC Fluidline liners are gel based and best applied with a brush, the softer than soft texture allows it to glide on the skin with ease - never tugging or pulling. I also find that MAC Fluidline is one of the few liners that doesn't turn overly dry meaning it doesn't crisp and flake off the skin! Is it the most long wearing product of it's type? No but it does wear true for at least eight hours and that is on oily skin like mine.

As mentioned above this is a limited edition collection and is both online and on counter now.
