Consisting of a nice, wearable selection of coral, peach, gold and brown hues, the latest M·A·C Prêt-à-Papier Collection definitely has something for everyone! ❤ corals!
For Eyeshadows ($14), we have 5 new and limited edition colors.
• Gazette Grey is a dark olive with gold shimmer. Very pretty in the pan but the Velvet formula makes it hard to blend and swatch.
• Bamboo is a matte flesh color that shows up just slightly darker on my NC30 skin.
• Cut to Fit is a frosty warm bronze with great pigmentation.
• Memorabilia is a matte muted medium purple that is beautiful.
• Tissueweight is a highly pigmented, frosty light beige with pink undertones.
The Sheertone Blush ($18.50) comes in 2 new, limited edition shades. Garb is a muddy tan color and Instant Chic is a muted coral. Both are finely milled and go on smoothly with good color payoff.
The Mineralize Blush in Light Over Dark ($23) is a repromote from the Grand Duo collection. It contains a super frosty golden with a slightly darker, warmer tan.
The Paint Pots ($16.50) in this collection are gorgeous! Coral Crepe is a very pretty, limited edition warm coral while Groundwork is neutral taupe from the permanent line. Both are shimmery and very pigmented.
As for the Lipsticks ($14), we have 3 new colors and a repromote, all limited edition.
• Archetype is a light gold color from the Alexander McQueen collection. It is very sheer and will most likely show up clear with just a bit of sheen.
• Dressmaker, Dressmaker is a beautiful light peachy coral color the Lustre formula and leave behind a pretty, glossy finish.
• Made to Order is a darker, warmer version of Dressmaker, Dressmaker.
• Kraft, the darkest out of the four, is a warm reddish brown in the Amplified formula. A little too dark for my taste.
Finally, we have a new product, the Chromagraphic Pencil ($14.50). Although MAC doesn’t quite explain what it does on its website, it is a pretty versatile product. It comes in 2 colors, NC15/NW20 and NW25/NC30. I use it on the waterline to brighten up the eyes, under the brow bone as a highlighter, around the lips to define the lip line and according to the MAC artist, it can also be used as an eyeshadow base.
Here is what I picked up from the collection:
