MAC’s new collection Monogram (their annual couture collection) is available today! MAC really went all out with this collection. With Monogram, you can personalize your look allowing you to own distinct and unique collection items. The collection offers everything from lipsticks and shadows to brushes and fragrances. You can pick and choose, defining your own look.
The packaging alone is enough to make me want to buy something in this collection. It is sophisticated and swanky. All of the packaging is in reds, golds and blacks. There is a glamorous looking MAC monogram on each of the items. The monogram is especially bold on one particular item, the Monogram Clutch. It’s black with a red and gold MAC monogram. It could be used as a makeup bag or even as a fashion accessory.
There are several different shades of Lipstick and Lipglass. The colors are silky, chic and just simply gorgeous. Just looking at the colors makes me think smooth. Use the Lipstick alone or, for a more high gloss finish, apply the Lipgloss over it.
The Sheerspark Pressed Powder is the item I am most excited about. It’s a new shimmer powder that can be used for the eye and the cheek. I love anything that is versatile. It lets me be creative and it makes me feel like I am getting more for my money.
The collection appears to include the following. We will update the list if we hear of any new additions to the collection.
