M.A.C. continues to roll out collection after collection and Pret a Papier is one of its latest ones.

It’s actually a fairly subtle collection – nothing bright, bold nor too sparkly.  This would be a collection for people who are afraid of a lot of colour.  It’s mostly neutrals with small elements of summer i.e. peaches and corals. This would also work well for those with fair to tan skin tones.

One item that people might love is the nail lacquer in Originality. This is a bright bronze colour with shimmer and flakies.  Flakies????? Yeah, flakies are becoming more and more popular in polishes.  They look like flakes, not glitter,but irregular flakes that are suspended in the polish and often they are opalescent or prism-like in the way they look.  Very cool!  They just add another dimension to the polish.  This has a foil-like finish as opposed to a glittery one.

This one did not speak to me.  It’s a nice collection – but it’s just that, nice……

I love bolder, brighter, more vibesy colours.  So great…..this allows me to save for the upcoming summer stuff. :-)!

Here are a few swatches……….
