MAC’s new collection Charming Garnet: Glamour Basics is a definite must-have this holiday season. The collection starts out with a wallet sized makeup bag that zips around to close. It is wine colored decorated with two reddish-orange stripes. As if the bag isn’t cute enough, it’s the goodies in the bag that have me all excited. It includes an iridescent powder in Belighful and a Slimshine lipcolour in Bare. The pressed face powder will highlight the skin subtly. It can be used with a foundation or even on its own. You can even mix it with moisturizers or foundations to give them an iridescent look. How cool is that? Both of these items are regular sized, which alone would make this collection a great deal. But it includes more.
Charming Garnet also comes with a mini Zoom Lash Mascara in Zoomblack and an 181SE Mini Buffer Brush. Even though the Buffer Brush is a smaller version of the regular sized brush, I think it will work just as well and it will also be easy to take with you for touch ups. The Buffer Brush has received rave reviews from so many people so I can’t wait to try it out. Usually, the regular sized buffer brush is $30 and since the whole collection is priced at $40, so it’s a great deal.
This is a MAC store exclusive so you’ll have to buy it online or go to your nearest MAC store to find it. The collection includes the following products:
• Iridescent Pressed Powder in ‘Belightful': Gilded Peach Bronze
• Slimshine Lipstick in ‘Bare': Light neutral pink with subtle gold pearl (Frost)
• Zoomlash Mascara in ‘Zoomblack’ (Promotional size)
• #181SE – Mini Buffer Brush – Compact-sized buffer brush with a dome-shaped, natural bristle head. Feels luxuriously soft on the skin. Deposits blush, flawlessly blends to provide a soft, even distribution of colour. (This is not a permanent brush)
