It’s Spring time!!!!!

Standard

Yeah, it’s spring and I’m excited!!!!  I love warm weather!

So M.A.C. continues to spring forward with their summer collections and next up is Pret a Papier and the colour of the season, coral, appears again.  This collection looks like a less intense version of the To The Beach collection, a good transition from spring to summer.

Craft Paper Couture – an inspired idea cut like a pattern and whipped up into a frisky little “funny face” frock. Then, strip it back to its essence for Summer 2010 for a Pret-a-Papier colour collection. It was a Project Runway challenge of sorts, with paper as the source, the instigator of ideas, the beginning of something simply, basically beautiful. Lipstick, LipGlass, Eye Shadow, Paint Pot, Chromografic Pencil, Studio Fix Lash, Impeccable Brow Pencil, Sheertone and Mineralize Blushes, and Nail Lacquer in a seamless spectrum of parchment-to-vellum beiges, with an occasional, clever colour spill, coral among the most au courant

The Products….

Chromagraphic Pencil – $14.50 U.S.

  • NC 15 / NW 20
  • NW 25 / NC 30

Note: These are brand new pencils, that appeared at the most recent Fashion Weeks, and they are supposed to be flesh-toned and used on the waterline.  I guess it’s supposed to be better than using a white pencil to make the eyes appear brighter and more awake.  It has peeked my interest! :-)
