Now for the details on this limited edition collection!!

This is basically a collection of subdued colours.

Lipsticks

  • Front Lit (Frost) –  very pale whitish yellow
  • High Strung (Frost) – very pale pink with a white/silver frost
  • Lovin’ It (Lustre) – light beige with shimmer
  • Hold the Pose (Lustre) – Medium tone plum colour with shimmer
  • Full Body (Lustre) – Deeper reddish plum with shimmer

None of these lipsticks were particularly unique, but they all work well with the other parts of the collection.  They could absolutely be used with the brighter summer colours or darker fall ones.  The colours are basic but you could probably find dupes in M.A.C.’s permanent collection.

These are available right now online for USD$14.00.

Lipglasses

  • New Spirit (Frost) – Light coral with golden shimmer
  • Personal Taste (Frost) – Dusty mauve with gold and pink shimmer.  This colour reminds me of Nico but less chunky glitter.
  • Young Thing (Frost) – Pale beige with gold.  Reminds me of a paler, less yellow C-Thru lipglass.
  • On Display (Frost) – Dark burgandy with light gold frost

Again great basic colours.

These are available right now online for USD$14.00.

Quad: Photo Realism

  • Photo Realism (Frost) – Pale gold with frost
  • Fresh Approach (Veluxe Pearl) – Pale minty green with light shimmer
  • Image Maker (Frost) – Mid tone forest green with frost
  • Grey Range (Veluxe Pearl) – Dark forest green with shimmer

This is actually a very nice quad for a twist on the classic smoky eye.  Grey Range is pretty dark but not black.  If you are into quads, this would be a good one to get as it has a lot of greens in it.  This quad makes the smoky eye a lot easier to achieve.

Quad: In The Gallery

  • Lightfall (Satin) – Pale pink with minimal shimmer
  • Look at the Eyes (Frost) – Light lavender with frost
  • In the Gallery (Matte) – Dark pink, with blue undertones, no shimmer
  • Private Viewing (Matte) – Dark plum with brown, no shimmer

This is a beautiful quad, and it incorporates some of fall’s hottest colours.  This quad contains 2 mattes, and they require a little bit more work to get a great colour payoff.  Make sure you take your time and blend!!!

Quad: Notoriety

  • Skintone 1 (Lustre) – Light white with pink and shimmer
  • Skintone 2 (Frost) – Dusty golden frost
  • Notoriety (Velvet) – Dark brown, with grey tones and gold shimmer
  • Rich & Earthy (Veluxe Pearl) – Dark coral with gold shimmer

Of the three quads, this was my least favourite.

These are available right now online for USD$36.00.

Plush Lash

Plushblack – Deep black.  This is permanent.

These are available right now online for USD$13.00.

Powder Blush

  • The Perfect Cheek (Matte) – Pale pink with no shimmer
  • Notable (Satin) – Mid tone reddish coral, minimal shimmer

Neither of these  blushes were standout. They are pretty neutral.

These are available right now online for USD$18.50.

Overall this collection is not a must have.  If you have to get something from this collection, I would get the Photo Realism and the In the Gallery quad, because they are pretty and the colours work well with each other.  I think the other colours are dupeable.  Also check out the face charts  now up on the website at maccosmetics.com.
