Dear MAC Tropical Taboo,
Mambo? Samba? Cha-Cha-Cha? I can hang, even in three-inch heels, as long as I have a strong partner, and I get the feeling that partner is you.
Twirl me, dip me, toss me in the air! Just don’t ask me to do the Lambada (“The Forbidden Dance”). It would be — I dunno — too taboo, and this show is PG-13.
The only thing I ask before we set fire to the dance floor is that you indulge me with shimmer, sparkle and shine from your chorus of new Mineralize Skinfinishes, Blushes, Eye Shadows and Lipsticks…because I want my eyes, lips and cheeks to sizzle as we samba!
Of course, we mustn’t forget to twirl the Cremesheen Glasses, Lip Pencils, and Kohl Power Eye Pencils that come with this launch (there’s also a mascara and three brushes). They deserve their time in the spotlight, too.
Why no, I don’t mind sharing you at all. If you’d like to ask my friends to dance, feel free to show off your sauciest, most seductive moves…
Shhh! What follows are pictures and swatches of 28 of the 33 forbidden (not really) pieces in the MAC Tropical Taboo collection…
Not pictured from the collection: the Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline ($15), Zoom Lash Zoomblack Mascara in Rich Black ($16), 287 Duo Fibre Eye Shadow Brush ($32), 159 Duo Fibre Blush Brush ($35) and 187 Duo Fibre Face Brush ($42).
The MAC Tropical Taboo collection drifts ashore, evading the treacherous reef and hungry sharks that encircle our tiny island, and into MAC stores and counters Thursday, June 27, but if the rhythm has already hit you, and you can’t resist popping your hip on the dance floor and exclaiming, “Aye-yai-yai!” just direct your best moves at maccosmetics.com, because the collection’s available now online.
I’ll be testing (and dancing) with these pieces over the next few days. I’ll let you know if I discover any gems.
Those Mineralize Skinfinishes sure look like excellent dancers, don’t they?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
