Ok, so I’m a bit late to the party on this one – but it’s easy to explain as basically this collection is one from MAC that basically bowled me over instantly. So I got stuck in and started using it – before managing to blog it. BAD BLOGGER. But the good news is that I’ve given the products a good test so can really talk about them – AND they’re not all sold out – and some include permanent shades. Although the palette is, if you love the shades from the palette you can always build your own using the pro shadows and palettes.
So starting with the palette – which is basically my dream basic palette in one gorgeously black and golden case. The four shades are: Pink Sands, All That Glitters, Rose Cloud, and Sable (these are the shades according to the website…on the back of my palette it lists them as Santa Fe, All The Glitters, FRA and Sable). So All That Glitters and Sable are both permanent, and I’m sure similar shades can be used for the other two… in the shot above I’m wearing all four shades. With Pink Sands/Santa Fe all over as the base, all that glitters across the lid. FRA/Rose Cloud in the crease and Sable lightly along the lash line – then blended together for a soft overall pinky/taupe look.
Then I used the gorgeous Powder Blush Duo on the cheeks – I adore the lighter shade from this as it’s a lovely flattering coral shade then there’s the warmer berry that just adds a pop more colour – for Summer I’d go heavier on coral, then colder months go heaver on the darker section.
Then on the lips we have a classic red – it’s a little confusing as my sample lists it as ‘Lady Danger’ which is another permanent one that’s part of the special collection but no fear if you missed out as it’s always available in the normal range. But according to the website it’s called ‘True Red’. Either way, Lady Danger is probably my favourite red shade from mac – it’s real power pout colour, not for the faint hearted by any means and if the shade ‘True Red’ is sold out, you could always go for Lady Danger as an alternative version.
