Release Date: February 11, 2010

The MAC Spring Colour Forecast is a four-part collection of colors for spring 2010. Yes, that’s right: four parts. All four will be released on the same day. This collection is so big it’s almost embarrassing. If you don’t have self-control, stay away from your MAC Cosmetics counter because even the pickiest makeup wearers are bound to find several things they can’t live without. The collections are dominated by pretty pastel colors typically associated with spring such as pinks and purples with some coral and bronze thrown in for good measure. There are also two new products making their debut.

Blush ombres are very large blushes that feature different colors blending into one another. For example, Azalea Blossom starts out with lilac at the top which slowly fades into a candy pink. You are supposed to swirl your brush around the compact to mix the colors together, although it’s conceivable that you could control the ratio somewhat with the right application technique. The Ripe Peach blush ombre is the only one that looks very wearable for most people- it’s a peach and pink combination that blends together to make cheeks look coral.

Crush metal pigments are a new twist on the traditional MAC pigments. They are sold in sets of four stackable jars that are reminiscent of sample jars. The formulation is slightly chunkier and much more metallic than their predecessors. Stacked 1 features pinks and purples whereas Stacked 2 consists of neutral bronze colors. The individual colors aren’t named and none of them are exact matches for any existing pigments. As the name implies, these are quite metallic so definitely skip these if mattes look best on you.

MAC has also redesigned their eyeshadow quad packaging in time for this collection, opting for a clear lid with magnetic closure. There are also a number of pink lipsticks here such as the shimmery hot magenta Pink Burst and the more subdued Phlox. Complementary Lipglasses and eye shadows round out the collection.
