Dayum, girl! These three MAC Art of Powder pans are bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
Is there a MAC counter at the MOMA now…?
The three-piece release of products inspired “…by the Masters & modern art movements” brushes onto North American MAC counters and breezes into stores September 29 (internationally next month).
Okay, these are some seriously soft powders, and get this — the designs are not simple oversprays. At least not as far as I can tell. Mind you, the last thing I want to do is go digging into these with a knife to see how far down into the pans the designs go, but all of them are embossed, etched into the pans. The patterns atop all of them, save the Street Art Eyeshadow, which does have silvery lineart that looks like an overspray to me, appear to go down deeper than one or two layers.
I’ll let you know just how deep down into the pans these designs go once I’ve really taken a brush to ’em, but either way, even if they are oversprays, they’re good oversprays at that.
Walk with me now, as we go on a little excursion tonight to a makeup museum, courtesy of MAC.

Swatch of In The Abstract Highlighter
Swatch of Optical Bronzer
The designs are just so blasted pretty, aren’t they? And the Optical Bronzer is a total trip. If I move my head around when I look at it, I actually feel a little off balance, ha!
Yup, I think the Bronzer and Highlighter here are destined for daily rotation. More to follow…
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. So now that we’re finished with Friday, what’s on the menu for tonight? How does fro-yo sound? Taro with toasted coconut, or perhaps red velvet cake topped with brownie? Mmmm…
