Three, or trois, as my high school French teacher Madame Sonsteng would say en Francais, is the magic number for the MAC Veluxe A Trois collection, and you gotta say it all slow motion and stretched out like, “twaaaahhhhhhhh.” Veluxe a twaaaahhhhhhh!
Technically, the collection doesn’t arrive on counters or in stores till August 13, but it’s already available online.
We took a look at the eye products in the release a little while back, but you know how it is with MAC… There’s a new collection out every 3.5 seconds, so here’s a quick refresher.
The collection is coming to stores and counters soon, but you have to please do me a favor now and read this list out loud like a robot (because it’s just more fun that way). 🙂
The MAC Veluxe A Trois collection includes…
- 6 new Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Trios ($25 each)
- 6 Lipsticks ($16 each)
- 4 Cremesheen Glasses ($20 each)
- 2 Haute & Naughty Mascaras ($22 each)
- 247 Flat Shader Brush ($25)
The stars of the show, obviously, are the new Veluxe Pearlfusion Trios, but the Lipsticks and Cremesheen Glasses are interesting, too. I’m looking forward to wearing a number of them this fall in looks. Check it…
All I have to say is this: Flowerscope, Quelle Surprise, Heux and Pillowtalk. With those four lipsticks in your makeup bag right meow, you’d be good through fall (and maybe even the holidays).
The Cremesheens Lipstick formula, by the way, is sooooo high up on my MAC pedestal. I friggin’ worship it. These lipsticks feel smooth, moisturizing, and I love how they have just the perfect amount of comfortable “slip” to them on your lips when you rub them together.
Both the Cremesheens and the Amplified lippies are my favorites. I totally LIVE for ’em.
As for the four Cremesheen Glasses in the Veluxe A Trois collection, meh… I think they’ll be better for layering on top of lipsticks than for wearing on their own. I’m a fan of the Cremesheen Glasses in general, because they aren’t sticky and they’re super moisturizing, but depending on the color, some of them (like the ones here) can apply a little patchy.
What do you think of the Veluxe A Trois collection lippies? Have you gotten any of them yet, or do you plan to?
In other news, TGIF! I’m heading to the movies this evening to take El Hub out for his birthday. Yes, it was his birthday this week, and one of his presents is/was a movie of his choosing, so we’re going to see Mission Impossible 12, or something like that. Five? Six? I lost track. There’s been so many of them… 🙂
Whatever you’re up to tonight, have fun! I’ll see you in the morning.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
