MAC: Cremeblend Blush Collection

Mar 17 2011 | Categories: Beauty News, MAC Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics Cremeblend Blush, MAC Cosmetics Limited Edition Collections

Release Date: March 3rd, 2011
International Release Date: March, 2011

MAC is zeroing on blush with their collection Cremeblend Blush. Powder blush wearers now how another option since this blush is a cream. This product is one of MAC’s permanents so if you like it, you’ll always be able to get it.

This collection is one of MAC’s smaller collections since it focuses only on blush. There are six different color options ranging from mauves, to corals, to browns. Although the collection isn’t very big, it appears that the colors have pretty much covered the bases for all of the basic skin tones out there. So if you are interested in trying a Cremeblend blush, you should be able to find a color that suits you.

It’s a creamy blush, hence the name Cremeblend. The blush offers a unique blend of ingredients to create a cream blush to blend on rather than a powder blush. My educated guess is that the blush should be longer lasting because cream tends to bond to the skin better than a powder.

I am not a big blush wearer, but I do recognize that it has its time and place. When the occasion calls for it, blush can be an absolute necessity. Up until now, I’ve only ever used powder blushes. I will be curious to see if I like the cream blush better.

For every contour control freak, for every persistent perfectionist comes this wondrous way to play with blush that gives you the most magnificent flexibility you’ve ever had…Starts creamy, stays creamy and proves that powder is NOT your only prerogative. Make powdery a thing of the past.

Cremeblend Blush (Permanent)

Brit Wit—Dusty rosy mauve
Ladyblush—Warm neutral coral
Posey—Warm peach
So Sweet, So Easy—Bright yellow pink
Something Special—Light coral
Tea Petal—Mid-tone reddish brown

MAC: Jeanius Collection

Mar 16 2011 | Categories: Beauty News, MAC Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics Eyeshadow, MAC Cosmetics Eyeshadows, MAC Cosmetics Lacquer, MAC Cosmetics Limited Edition Collections, MAC Cosmetics Lipglass, MAC Cosmetics Lipstick, MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks, MAC Cosmetics Nail Lacquer, MAC Cosmetics Penultimate Brow Marker, MAC Cosmetics Penultimate Eyeliner, MAC Cosmetics Powder Blush

Release Date: March 3rd, 2011
International Release Date: March 2011

MAC’s spring line is starting out fierce with the new collection Jeanius. The collection offers products from eyeshadow, liner, and blush, to lipstick, lipglass, and nail lacquer. As implied by the name, this collection speaks to the denim lover in each of us.

After first glance at all of the products offered in this collection it doesn’t necessarily strike me as a spring collection. When I think of spring, I think of soft pinks, purples and even yellows. This collection does offer some of those, but it mainly includes a lot of grays and blues. I love that the collection name so specifically fits the color scheme. And you do have to hand it to MAC for the way they play on words. At least the name of the collection is genius even if the complete color scheme is not.

And as pretty as I think some of the colors look, I am not exactly sure how they will look on. For me, it takes the right outfit and the right venue to want to wear blue eye makeup. If blues aren’t done right, they just look cheap to me. But MAC does often get it right so I am willing to give this collection a chance.
Some of the nail lacquer colors are particularly interesting to me. I find that I get more into nail polish at the change of the seasons. Spring truly brings out my desire to have my toes nicely painted and my fingers matching in style. Fray-to-order looks like it will be a really pretty color. It is a white matte with soft pink duochrome pearl.

When my nails are painted, I like to have my lip color match when appropriate. I am not sure that any of these lip colors offered in this collection match completely, but I think that the lipstick shade Pretty Please might compliment the nail color nicely. I am excited to try it.

What do you think MAC customers? Is there something in this collection you are especially excited about? Or is this a collection that won’t put a dent in your wallet?

Jeanius is a celebration of the journey America made a national obsession. M∙A∙C keeps up with a Jeanius collection of moody blues and indigo ink, the quantum of modern cool, with four new limited-life denimized Eye Shadows, Lipglass, Blush and Biker Blue Nail Lacquer. Completely riveting.

MAC: Sheen Supreme Lipstick Collection

Mar 15 2011 | Categories: Beauty News, MAC Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics Limited Edition Collections, MAC Cosmetics Lipstick, MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks

Release Date: March 3rd, 2011
International Release Date: March 2011

There’s nothing quite as worldly cinematic as a Lipstick. Imagine no muddy undertones, gliding in pearl or creme finish, moisturizing with no sticky/tacky feel. It’s a new medium, with M∙A∙C in the lead. Sheen Supreme is retro/modern and devastatingly chic.

There are very few things as sensual as lips. MAC has taken an ever deeper interest in helping to make your lips look their best with their new collection Sheen Supreme Lipstick. This lipstick is new and unique. From its texture to its finish, this lipstick stands supreme.

When MAC offers a collection like this one that is so centered on what area of beauty, you are sure to find a color that will work for you. With this collection, there is a definitely a color for every skin tone. I like collections like this some times that are focused and it’s simply a matter of picking your favorite color.

These lipsticks are a new product. One of the things I least like about lipsticks are they tendency they have to dry, cake, and crack. When the lipstick does this, it usually means it is having the same effect on your lips. We all want soft, kissable lips. The Sheen Supreme Lipstick has a moisturizing effect to help keep your lips from drying and cracking. Lipstick looks best when applied to smooth soft lips so if the lipstick can help them be smooth and soft, I would definitely want that product.

The finish of the lipstick is also very sleek. You can get the lipstick in a pearl or crème finish. Depending on the color and the look you are going for, you may want some of each. I tend to like pinks in my lipstick, but I also want to try “Can’t Resist”. It is a golden purplish red and it sounds beautiful. I can’t wait to try the lipstick and find out if the product is as unique and refreshingly modern as MAC says it is.

Sheen Supreme Lipstick

Bare Again—Pinky neutral beige
Behave Yourself—Light blue pink
Can’t Get Enough—Beige neutral
Can’t Resist—Golden purplish red
Full Speed—Bright clean yellow pink
Good to Be Bad—Deep burgundy
Gotta Dash!—Pale coral
Impressive—Neutral gilded plum
Insanely It—Watermelon pink
Look at Her!—Metallic copper
New Temptation—Vivid blue red
Quite the Thing!—Deep blue plum

Ultra Darling—Mid-tone yellow pink

MAC: Viva Glam Gaga II Collection

Mar 07 2011 | Categories: Beauty News, MAC Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics Limited Edition Collections, MAC Cosmetics Lipglass, MAC Cosmetics Lipstick, MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks

Release Date: February 17th, 2011
International Release Date: March 2011

No Bad Romance here. We’re unveiling a hot new shade inspired by Lady Gaga and her passions, in both Lipstick and Lipglass. And by now you know every cent from the sale of M∙A∙C VIVA GLAM goes toward the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund.

MAC has released another addition to their Viva Glam line with Viva Glam Gaga II. Promoted and inspired by Lada Gaga it offers a lipstick and a lipglass color. As always, all proceeds go to the MAC AIDS Fund.

Whether you are a fan of Lada Gaga or not, these two products might be worth your time and money. Both the lipstick and lipglass are considered beige or nude tones. At first I thought, “Yuck!”. I usually think of nude colors as background tones. Like me, you might not always think of beige and nude colors as something that will stand out. These colors break the mold and make a statement. They are getting rave reviews as well. Apparently, they aren’t your typical nude tones.

While I really like both the Lipstick and Lipglass on their own, I also think MAC has brilliantly paired them together. The two really compliment each other giving just a little extra wow-factor. Because the money goes to charity, the pro discount is not available for this collection. I am always a fan of anything that results in money to much needed charities, but it’s nice if what you buy with the money for charity is a great product. What do you think MAC fans?

MAC: Future Face Collection

Feb 28 2011 | Categories: Beauty News, Featured Posts, MAC Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics Limited Edition Collections, MAC Cosmetics Makeup Brushes, MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

Release Date: February 17th, 2011
International Release Date: March 2011

M∙A∙C forges ahead with a three-in-one force: Powder, Foundation and Tinted Moisturizer all together. A broad, all-inclusive shade range means M∙A∙C Artists can cover everybody, one beautiful conquest at a time. Call your clients most in need of convincing, and watch what happens!

MAC’s newest collection not only focuses on your face now but it is all about the future as well. If we aren’t doing all we can to take care of our beauty and preserve it for the future, we’ll be disappointed when that time comes. The collection “Future Face” combines skin care products and makeup products that are beautiful and healthy for the skin. The combination will leave you looking great now with flawless skin, and great in the future with flawless skin free from the aging affects of daily life.

The collection is somewhat small compared to many other collections that MAC releases. There is a pressed powder, a liquid foundation, the return of the tinted moisturizer and a couple of brushes. I love collections like this where the whole thing really does go together. I want to buy one of everything so I have the complete “set” to moisturize and keep my face looking great now and for the future.

Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder is the new product. Is it makeup or skin care; that is the question? It offers sheer to medium coverage depending on what you want or need. The powder is supposed to nourish as it covers allowing your face to look beautiful now while still preserving the beauty for the future. The powder has a very smooth finish so you there won’t be people paying attention to the dry powder look as the day goes on into the night.

Another great thing about this new Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder is that it can either be used all by itself or with other products as well. You can apply it over the liquid foundation or in addition to the moisture tint. It’s easy to carry around in your purse for touch ups through the day. So how is the powder so healthy for your skin? It has a unique blend of botanicals including Safflower Seed Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Olive Oil and Lecithin. The powder is also very versatile since it is okay for all skin types.

The Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder is getting a lot of attention. It could quite possibly revolutionize the way most of us think about pressed powders. I know that I am very excited about it. I have always liked the convenience and ease of a pressed powder, but haven’t always liked the way it made my skin look. If it does what it says it does, I am very excited to try it. What do you think? Is the Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder everything it sets out to be?

I’ve listed the complete collection below including the MAC brushes offered. I’ve found you can never go wrong with a MAC brush. Each of these products are joining MAC’s permanents.

MAC: Wonder Woman Collection

Release Date: February 10th, 2011
International Release Date: March 2011

MAC has amped up their superhuman forces with their latest collection, Wonder Woman. The collection is a very big one complete with accessories and online exclusives. The products offered include everything from lipsticks to eyeshadow quads, from lashes to nail lacquer.

When I first heard this collection was going to be be released, I was really excited. Wonder Woman is one of the first well-known female superheros. She was one of my superheros. What better icon is there to speak to the strong, capable woman in each of us?

Once I started to review the collection, my feelings started changing. My first thoughts were, “How fun!” But unfortunately, my thoughts didn’t go much beyond that, at least not in positive terms. Even though I want my makeup to be fun and playful, I think this collection might be a little too much for even me. As I reviewed the colors, I found myself envisioning me in this year’s Halloween costume as Wonder Woman. All of the products would definitely come in handy then.

Even many of the names went a little over the top for me. I usually love the intelligent names that MAC comes up with for their products. They fit the products so well. I guess in this case, MAC still held true to their M.O. The names do fit the products. Names like Pink Power, Spinning Transformation, Deep Truth; Again, it’s all just a little too juvenile for me.

The packaging is another thing to make mention of. Usually, MAC packaging is so perfect. This packaging just makes me think of saving my pennies to buy that one toy I wanted at the local drug store. I have seen many mixed reviews on the packaging. Many think it looks too tacky—especially for MAC. Others feel it is reminiscent of their childhood. I think I have to agree with those who feel it’s just a little too tacky.

I think the only positive note for me in this collection is that it does offer lipstick and nail lacquer in true red colors. Every once in a while, an occasion or outfit will call for a nice red lipstick and nail polish. I might consider adding one or both of these products to my personal collection.

I will also say that the collection does take me back to my childhood. My childhood is a place with many fond memories. I remember how terrible I was at putting on makeup and how I wanted to look sophisticated and beautiful. I still want to look sophisticated and beautiful and for me, this collection just isn’t doing the trick. What do you think? Are any of these products your favorite picks?

M∙A∙C Spring Colour 2011 is the feminine force that saves the day! No nemesis can match her super-sized Mineralize Skinfinish, Eye Shadows, Lipsticks and Powder Blush for this transformation! Our Artists work wonders every day – now with the help of one of the most exciting feminist figures…

MAC: Lightfully Bright Collection

Feb 01 2011 | Categories: MAC Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics Lightful Charged Essence, MAC Cosmetics Lightful Deep Ultramoisture Creme, MAC Cosmetics Lightful Foaming Creme Cleanser, MAC Cosmetics Limited Edition Collections, MAC Cosmetics Lipglass, MAC Cosmetics Skin Care, MAC Lightful Active Softening Lotion

Release Date: February 2011 (online exclusive)

MAC has a new collection that is keeping things light for the Spring. The Lightfully Bright Collection is primarily a skin care launch with just a bit of color from four limited edition Lipglass colors.

While I am usually into skin care and love to pamper my face, I am not that excited about these skin care products. What’s going to be different about them? When I read about this skin care line, I just think about the money it will cost. The skin care products are all limited edition as well so for me personally, if I were to try something and really like it, I’d be bummed out that I couldn’t get more of it in the coming months. I prefer to just find my favorite skin care products knowing they will be around in months to come.

I am intrigued by the Lipglasses in this collection. I get really excited for spring to get here when I see colors like these. I want to try Outer Space. It is a white with pink pearl in it; Although, I may have to work on my tan before I can truly pull off the color. I also want to try the Astro Cool Lipglass. I think the light lavender with pink pearl sounds really feminine and pretty.

This collection is only available online here in the United States. It you want to buy it in MAC stores, you’ll have to travel to Asia.

Lipglass

Outer Space—White with pink pearl (Limited Edition)
Astro Cool—Light lavender with pink pearl (Limited Edition)
Atmospheric—Pink with blue pearl (Limited Edition)
Ethereal—Pale blue with pink pearl (Limited Edition)

A Review of MAC Cosmetics Powerpoint Eye Pencil

Jan 14 2011 | Categories: MAC Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics Eye Liners, MAC Cosmetics Powerpoint Eye Pencil

A great eyeliner is a must have in every girl’s makeup case. Eyeliner is the one essential you cannot be without, sort of like lip gloss. MAC Cosmetics Powerpoint Eye Pencil is one of those eyeliners that I have found to be a must have, over any of my other liners. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love my NARS, Benefit and even some L’Oreal eyeliners. It’s just, I have found one that takes the cake.

MAC Cosmetics powerpoint eyeliner, is waterproof and it goes on smooth and strong. Personally I prefer an eyeliner that goes on heavy and bold. If I am looking to wear an eyeliner that I can barely see, I will use an eyeshadow and blend it out, for a softer look. But if I am going to bust our my pencil, I want power with it. The MAC Cosmetics powerpoint eyeliner gives you that and more. Plus, you can be confident knowing it is from MAC. MAC Cosmetics eyeliners are time tested and known to be the cream of the crop when it comes to quality.

There are about 14 different shades you can choose from. My favorite is a color called Engrave. It is a dark black. It is a flat black, no shimmer. Just dark and bold. Just how a black eyeliner should be. Though, for all the fun looks, they offer many metallic shades too. They are amazing. I have found they actually stand out more then metallic liquid eyeliner colors I have used in the past.

When going for a smokey eye look, it is best to have a great black eyeliner to complete the look. Out of all the eyeliners that lay in my makeup case, I always go for my Powerpoint eyeliner. All of the eyeliners work great for any look. Their brown is great, as well as their blues and greens. I always use their Engrave with any dark, smokey look that I am going for. When I play with bright colors, I like to choose there other fun shades.

MAC Cosmetics Powerpoint Eye Pencil is extremely long lasting. The type that, if you do not wash your makeup off at night, it is still perfect in the morning. I also found out, that when washing it off in the shower, it will leave behind color that actually still looks good. It is waterproof, so expect it to stick around for a while. Though it is best removed completely with an oil-free remover. If it is not oil-free, it will just kind of smear it around.

Out of my experiences with SmashBox, NARS, Makeup Forever and others, I have found MAC’s Powerpoint Eye Pencil to be the most durable, lasting eyeliner. If you are looking for an eyeliner that sticks and does not want to go anywhere, this is your type of liner. The eyeliner also goes on very smooth, almost creamy. You can also apply it, then take a small angled liner brush and shape, blend, smooth or drag out the liner on your lid. It’s just that amazing!

The Powerpoint liner really is a great find. I find it to be one of my top choices, out of the many eyeliners I own. It is priced very average, in comparison to other high end cosmetic lines, yet the quality of the liner will surely win you over.

MAC: Finally Flawless Collection

Jan 13 2011 | Categories: Beauty News, MAC Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics Limited Edition Collections, MAC Cosmetics Makeup Brushes, MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Foundation SPF15

Release Date: January 13th, 2011
International Release Date: January 2011

MAC is all about helping us be the most beautiful we can be. Their collection Finally Flawless is no exception. This collection is a small one offering a Mineralize Foundation and a brush.

I love when I get reminders that beauty starts with the basics—if you have a great foundation that allows your skin to look smooth and beautiful, everything else is just icing on the the cake.

This foundation is unique in that it uses a blend of minerals and water. Since our skin is made up almost entirely of minerals and water, the foundation is helping to put back into our skin what everyday life takes out. It has a nourishing effect on the skin. It helps to reduce the appearance of pores and other skin blemishes because it moisturizes so well avoiding the flaky effect as well. It is also a gel based foundation which makes it ideal for normal to dry skin.

Makeup artist love this product. It was used in the Spring/Summer 2010 fashion shows of; BCBG, Carolina Herrera and Baby Phat. But you don’t have to be a model to enjoy the benefits of this product. It is great for any woman who wants to look her best at the office or throughout the evening. It is long lasting up to eight hours which makes this a dream for anyone who is on the go constantly needing to look their best.

The collection offers brush 130 for help in application. The brush can help you get a smooth application especially around the eyes where your skin is most delicate. Neither the brush nor the foundation are new to MAC. This collection is a relaunch of Mineralize Foundation SPF 15. The foundation is permanent to the MAC products.

Mineralize Foundation SPF 15 has the exclusive formula – micronized and coated pigments improve blendability, maintain colour purity with SPF 15, and our liquid mineral ferment complex adds nutrients. Light diffusing optics minimize the visibility of imperfections – FINALLY Flawless!

Mineralize Foundation SPF 15
