MAC Valentine's Day 2013 Collection - Rebel Romance
Rebel Romance contains some pieces to create deep eyes, bright lips, and then matching bright nails from the new permanent Nail Lacquer product line. I love that MAC now has Lipsticks and Nail Lacquers that are exact matches, I would love if NARS had a similar collection since I would love a polish that exactly matches Schiap...
"Revel in the spirit of red this Valentine's Day with M•A•C's online-exclusive selection of shades, for every love-obsessed, passionate rebel."
Here is the new Valentine's Day collection from MAC!
Powerpoint Eye Pencil - Waterproof. Longwearing. Metallic, shimmer and matte finishes. Smooth to apply. Won't transfer, smudge, or budge... Draws the line: powers your eyes. Makes its point. Lasts.
- Engraved - rich black
Haute and Naughty Lash - A two-in-one mascara that lets you choose if you want lashes to be naturally defined, or instantly combed and loaded for full-on drama. Easy to use dual-wiper system allows this lightweight formula to go on either way. One wiper refines the application for a clean sweep, while the other loads the lashes for greater impact.
- Black - black
Lipstick - Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made MAC famous.
- MAC Red - vivid bright bluish-red (Satin)
- Rebel - midtonal cream plum (Satin)
- Diva - intense reddish-burgundy (Matte)
Nail Lacquer - Revolutionary new high gloss formula. Three long-wearing finishes - Cream, Sheer, and Frosted. Visibly different. Provides no-streak/no-chip finish. Contains conditioners and UV protection. Go hi-lacquer!
- Russian Red - midtonal neutral red
- Dark Angel - goth romantic dark lilac
- Vintage Vamp - rich deep retro wine
I love the Nail Lacquers in this collection but I would have used them much more in the fall and winter, if I decide to buy them now I would only use them a few times before I put shades like these away for the season. Russian Red is the only shade that I would consider using in a pedicure after the winter is over but the others will be set aside. I might just keep these shades on the backburner until next August...
The same thoughts hold for the Lipsticks, I already own MAC Red and I would only use Diva in the fall and winter. So I might just hold Diva for next fall and decide if I still want to purchase it in a few months. The mascara is the only item that I want right now from this collection so I may need to buy a tube of it next time that I go to the counter but this is not a needed item at this time.
Is Valentine's Day over yet?!
