So, PR pics aren’t usually my thing (I’ll take my Canon and a pile of products any day, son!), but with these two new collections from MAC, I had to share.
MAC A Fantasy of Flowers
My inner (wannabe) botanist is super stoked about A Fantasy of Flowers. Its 34 pieces of prettiness arrive online January 30 and at counters February 6 in North America (international babes, it hits your shores in March at all locations except Japan).
The release looks like a veritable botanical garden of gorgeous Mineralize Eye Shadows, Blushes, Skinfinishes, and floral-themed Lipsticks, Cremehsheens and Nail Lacquers, too.
And the blooming doesn’t stop there. The release also features three brushes and a pair of mascaras…but really, you know I’m drooling over the pretty, pretty colors, LOL!
We’ll see six petal-perfect Lipsticks in MAC’s Lustre finish, namely pale creamy peach Fleur d’Coral, neutral sheer nude Naked Bud, sheer reddish-coral Dreaming Dahlia, sheer pastel pink Rose Lily, mid-tone blueish pink Snapdragon and mid-tone berry Heavenly Hybrid ($15 each US, $18 CDN).
And for a finish that shines like morning dew, take a gander at the six gleaming Cremsheens ($20 each US, $23 CDN). Choose from soft pinkish-peach Nectarsweet, mid-tone pinkish beige Flare for Fantasy, frosted cool pink Pagoda, electric magenta Playful Petal, bright orange-coral Star Quality and mid-tone violet pink Galaxy Rose.
But what about eyes and cheeks?
Well, how ’bout a bouquet of shimmer with a bevy of Mineralize Skinfinishes, Pigments and Fluidlines…
Mineralize Eye Shadow ($21 each US, $25 CDN)

- Pink Sensibilities, a pinkish brown, chocolate brown, yellow pink and icy blue pink (frost)
- Golden Hours, a copper bronze, golden brown, soft golden peach and pale yellow gold (frost)

Pigments ($21 each US, $25 CDN)

Fluidlines ($16 each US, $19 CDN)

Mineralize Blushes ($25 each US, $29.50 CDN)

Not even tips or toes were overlooked this time around, as they get four Nail Lacquers. You’ll feel downright floral after painting your paws/claws with creamy light peachy nude Pep Pep Pep, creamy light cool pink Saint Germain, glittery pink Girl Trouble or sparkly light bronzed gold Soiree ($16 US and $19 CDN each).
Oh, and yeah, those brushes…
MAC A Prep + Prime CC Colour Correct
Also coming soon, a new line of Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting products in liquid, pressed and loose powder form.
They’re not nearly as flashy as A Fantasy of Flowers, but still worth a look if you’re on the market for a color-corrector.
The 12-piece release (I’m not sure if it’s limited or permanent; trying to find out) arrives February 6 to North American MAC counters, stores and online. If you live overseas, mark your calendars for March.
