Upcoming collection: M.A.C. In The Groove

So In The Groove is one of the collections coming out in July in the US.  It features a bunch of mineralized products which are popular for at least one summer collection.  I am definitely interested although M.A.C. can be hit or miss with the formulations, especially for the MES (sometime they come out super smooth like the first set, but others are quite grainy like last year’s).

Note: All information and images courtesy of Specktra

Collection arrives July 8th in the U.S. and in August internationally

LOTD: A bronzey, coral look!!

Hey!!

So in celebration of the amazing warm weather we’ve been having, I decided to make use of one of my favourite colours of the season, coral.  Honestly, I don’t know why it took me so long to discover this colour.  I think it had something to do with a wedding that I was in as a child, and had to wear the MOST hideous peach bridesmaid dress ever…..and the makeup was just wrong…..sigh….

So I was browsing the M.A.C. website and was looking at the face charts that they published for the collection.

I was instantly drawn to this stunning coral look, with a shot of turquoise along the waterline.  I loved it!  Coincidentally, oranges and blues are complementary and look amazing together in the right proportion.  So the coral makes the turquoise liner pop even more!!!!  A great summer look!!!!

Coral, bronze, turquoise LOTD

I may repeat this look soon, so I’ll try to take better pics!

Enjoy! 🙂

1) FunBathing l/s, 2) Thrills l/s, 3) BeachBound l/s, 4) Hipness blush, 5) Sun & Sand e/s, 6) Humid e/s, 7) Firecracker e/s, 8) Both shades of Marine Life, coral side at left, 9) Life's A Breeze l/l, 10) Temperature Rising l/l, 11) Rosemary & Thyme eye pencil, 12) Float On By e/p

I think that there is something for everyone.  The colours are very wearable and not too warm or too cool.  The limited edition packaging is really beautiful with at least 4 different colours/designs.  Shadows came in bright avocado green cases with a cream seashell on the cover, the blushes and the highlight powder came in deep olive green casing, the bronzers, lipsticks and lipglosses came in deep orange cases with cream starfish and the eye  and lip pencils were white with a coral design.  While there are quite a few permanent and repromoted items, there were some stand out items:
