Mac Cosmetics is always on point, but this season more than ever before I am in love their new products. I was going to write a bunch of different posts about each product, but if you are heading to Mac this season I wanted you to have one place to go for everything.
MAC Zac Posen Haute Contour Powder Blush
First of all, the name! Yes on all levels! Second, the colours! They make me want to be on a beach somewhere. The bronzer is dark and golden and dreamy. The blush is pink and shimmery. I appreciate that this is a light pink without a hint of coral. It is perfect for contouring your face for a sculpted look, but it can also be used in any of your looks. I like that it’s so versatile to work with your look.
Mac Brooke Candy Eye Gloss in White-Yin and Black-Yang
Rapper Brooke Candy is back for another collection with Mac and this one is daring. Honestly, a lot of this collection makes me feel old. I just don’t think I can pull off dark purple lipstick at my age. The Eye Gloss is very cool though. Transform any regular eye shadow with a top coat of this glossy finish. There is a white and black, so that you can choose whether you want a darker look or a shimmery light look. It stays gloss to give you that wet eyeshadow look. It’s a weird sensation to live with. I’m not sure how I feel about having sticky wet eyelids, but the look is very cool!
Eye Shadow X 9: Dusky Rose Times Nine Palette
If you’re more of a traditional eye shadow girl, the Eyes On MAC is all you’ll ever need shadow wise. We already tried one when they first came out and now they’ve added more shade combinations. Dusky Rose is my favourite for spring (although Pastel Times Nine is a close second) because it’s just so pretty. You have everything from pink to brown to silver that all are rose tinged. I also love these palettes because you get so many look options in one place and they’re so affordable that you can pick up multiple shades if you want.
All The Right Angles Contour Palette
At first, I wasn’t really sure how to use this contour palette. I needed to look it up to see what each of the pots contained. Once I had mastered the idea, I became absolutely obsessed with this palette. The Cream Colour Base is such a nice product. I don’t even need foundation with this. It has a bit of a shimmer and leaves my face looking amazing without a lot of work. Then I add on sculpting and shaping powders to shape my face and give me those cheek bones I wasn’t born with. This might be one of the best products that I’ve ever owned, let alone the best of the season.
MAC Pro Beyond Twisted Lash
Take your lashes from straight to ultimately twisted with this new mascara. The mascara is the same quality mascara that you expect from MAC, it’s the wand that you will want to talk about. This mascara wand is flexible, so you can bend it up to 90 degrees. This means you can apply mascara to all of your lashes a LOT easier without having to be a contortionist to do so. I don’t do as well with change, so it’s going to take me a while to get used to apply mascara from a new angle. It’s such a cool design and I can just imagine how this will change things for makeup artists.
