I’ve been using MAC for over fifteen years but sometimes I forget how much I love it. Until I get a collection like A Novel Romance. I would wear pretty much every shade in the line but the ones that were sent to us just also happened to be the ones I would’ve picked on my own.
The A Novel Romance eyeshadow quad is perfect for fall. It consists of My Fantasy (a pale neutral olive pearl), Fall In Lust (midtone grey mauve frost), Rising Passions (greenish charcoal with gold pearl velvet) and Dance In The Dark (matte blackened brown). They all blend really well with each other and are really buildable. The pigmentation is perfect, like most MAC shadows and Dance In The Dark is a great liner shade.
Fun Ending is a soft neutral peach powder blush that went on slightly darker than I was expecting but was also really buildable. Now that whatever colour I had from summer is wearing off, this is definitely going to be a go to blush shade for fall.
Hearts Aflame is a matte midtone brick red lipstick that’s also perfect for fall. It’s a touch darker than what I would normally wear, but it’s super flattering on me, the pigmentation is great and it lasts for hours. This is sold out on the website right now, so you might want to call around to find it.
I really love everything about this collection. All the shades looked amazing, had great pigmentation and is basically everything I’ve come to expect from MAC.
