Are you ready for more? How about some Lipglasses with serious bling?
Three out of the four Lipglasses sparkle like crazy, especially Underdressed. At the same time it is also rather pigmented, so it might be really pretty on!
That’s right, MAC is doing shadow pencils! From left to right you can see Rich Glance, Copper Strip, Life’s Luxury, Polished Jet Powerchrome Eye Pencils. Rich Glance required a couple of passes to look opaque, but I only needed one pass for the other three. I thought I’d have to go home with these stripes on my arm, but fortunately some water and soap took care of them. I hope that doesn’t imply they have lesser lasting power though!
I am a fan of both blushes, especially Ripe for Love! I’m not sure how the micro-glitter in Hot Nights will look on the cheeks, but it’s definitely a blush color that I don’t own at all!
What would a summer collection be without bronzers? Most of these are repromotes while one is permanent. First let’s take a look at the Bronzing Powders:
I apologize for the huge sparkle. It’s not the bronzer. It’s from the Lipglasses that I didn’t remove properly!
Here are the Pro Longwear Bronzers:
My impression is that the Pro Longwear Bronzers swatch better, and both shades are rather subtle.
The two Nail Lacquers and the face blender brush were not there. It’s a pity because the Nail Lacquers look so interesting in the promo image!
Something else that people have been excited about is Riri Woo, the lipstick Rihanna designed for MAC. It is inspired by her favorite MAC lipstick, Ruby Woo.
With a matte finish, Riri Woo is definitely on the drier side. This will be available (at least in Belgium) exclusively online. Apparently Rihanna has four collaborations with MAC. Two smaller ones (like this lipstick) will only be available online, while the two larger ones will be available in stores as well.
Also, if you missed out on Ablaze when Fashion Sets came out, don’t be too upset because the lipstick and liner are making a comeback later this year in a collection called All About Orange! I was forbidden to take any pictures or swatch anything, but the collection includes variations of orange lipsticks, some Cremesheen Glasses, and a gray/silver quad. Another heads-up would be if you like the Mineralize Rich Lipsticks, watch out for the 5 new shades that will join the range in a couple of months’ time!
Phew, that’s a lot of photos and information to digest! I am excited about the shadow pencils, and I can’t wait to see if the formula will last well on me!
