MAC Trend F/W ’09 Collection Product Information

The shapes and steely colours in this collection are an expression of the trend, an ode to the Strength of a Woman, rendered with true architectural precision. The geometry of eyes in graphic, graphite tones of grey with the beguiling blue sheen of an elegant grid of sky-reflecting windows on a stunning concrete skyscraper, Trend F/W ’09 is a living tower of power! Lips are dark or seductively nude. The fragrance? Asphalt Flower, a
limited-life scent as bold and urbane as the Modern Metropolis.
