MAC Stylishly Yours

Finally! I have been stalking the MAC website for about four days now, wondering when the two newest collections would be releasing. Now they are up so without further ado... "Madly chic women give a signature look major oomph and more modern momentum with a presto-change-o colour collection that's always flawlessly fabulous. Play variations on a theme & be ready to double-dramatize how glamourous it is to be you! I am so ready for some new MAC makeup shades! I am big on variations on a theme with my tons of neutral and gold eye shadows and red lipstick shades.

Here is the new collection...

Fluidline - Ultra-smooth, Fluidline's gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on "foolproof" with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing, smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes. Brush sold separately.
- Dark Diversion - blackened plum
- Blacktrack - solid flat black

Pigment - Pigment is a highly concentrated loose colour powder that contains ingredients to help it adhere to the skin. Create a subtle wash of colour or an intense effect. Does not streak or cake. Easy to blend and long-lasting.
- Follow Your Fancy - bright coral with small pearl particle
- Madly Personal - bright pink
- New Fixation - bright fushcia red with soft pearl
- Violet - vivid bright violet pearl (Frost)

Zoom Lash - Major drama. Lasts all day. Creamy, velvety formula builds density and conditions. Feels light, supple. Ultra-sculpted brush has three-sided fibres to embrace and separate each lash, hugging every curve. Coats in one stroke from root to tip. No smudging.
- New Hue - blackened burgundy

Zoom Lash Black - Deeply dark drama. Same as Zoom Lash but with carbon black pigment. Saturates lashes with the richest black ever. Creamy, velvety formula builds density and conditions. Feels supple, light, flexible. Ultra-sculpted brush embraces and separates each lash, hugging every curve.
- Black - rich deep black

Lipstick - Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the streets! What made MAC famous.
- Neon Orange - bright clean orange (Amplified)
- Something New - creamy bright blue pink (Amplified)
- Cockney - sheer red yellow with multidimensional pearl (Lustre)
- Style Curve - bright clean violet pink (Cremesheen)

Clear Lipglass - A unique lip gloss that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil, or Lipstick, Clear Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips and a tiny bead of this highly concentrated product is all that's needed to cover the lip area. Packaged in a convenient squeeze tube, Clear Lipglass is easy to apply using a lip brush. Clear Lipglass can be mixed with other products, like Pigments, and can be applied anywhere on the body except for the eye area to create interesting effects.

Cream Colour Base - Versatile and multi-purpose, Cream Colour Base can be applied directly to bare skin, or layered over foundation, moisturizer, or powder. Apply with a brush, sponge, or fingers. Colour effects range from a light veil to highly dramatic, depending on method of application. Fragrance-free.
- Virgin Isle - vivid bright coral
- Tickle Me Pink - poppy creamy bright pink
- Movie Star Red - medium toned blue red
- Madly Magenta - vivid pinkish purple

Beauty Powder - A silky-soft "beauty" powder that's delicately tinted and luxuriously pearl. Goes on as an ultra-fine shimmering "veil" to the skin. Can be applied as a highlight, soft blush, or overall finish.
- Play It Proper - pastel pink with sparkles
- Too Chic - soft peachy cream with fine shimmer
209 Eye Liner Brush - An extra-fine tipped synthetic fibre brush that delivers a precise, firm, even, stroke with which to line the eyes. Use with liquid or cream products.

This is my least favorite of the two new collections, I find many of these shades much too bright for my complexion and would be better suited to someone with medium to deep skin. I can count on one hand the items that I would like to purchase from this collection: the two shades of Fluidline and the Pigment in Violet. This collection is great for someone with loves to experiment with bold, funky colors but none of these would work for me so I will be passing over this whole collection. I see that MAC is using a pale skinned model for the promotional picture but I just can't see how this will work in real life.
