Well clutch mah pearls! Did I read that right? Was I just invited to a Veluxe a Trois? *fans self* Oh, my heavens! I’m not exactly sure what a party like that entails…but if the MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadows will be there, I’m in! — as long as I don’t have to take off my cat tee shirt and stretchy pants, of course.
MAC Veluxe a Trois. Um…why does this collection’s name sound like the title of a dirty movie?
Or is that just me?
It’s probably just me…
Never mind! 🙂
In the opinion of this one cat-obsessed makeup fiend, the MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion eyeshadow formula is one of the MOST underrated MAC formulas of them all, and soon (August 13), when the new MAC Veluxe a Trois collection arrives, there will be six new trios with the Veluxe Pearlfusion formula.
Boom. There, I said. One of the most underrated MAC formulas of them all.
HEADS UP! The Veluxe a Trois collection launched early at Hudson’s Bay and is currently, as of right now, available online.
Have you played with the Veluxe Pearlfusions before? Easy to blend and very forgiving of fine lines, they’re super finely-milled powder eyeshadows so silky that they feel almost like creams, and even if you can’t work a tapered blending brush for sh*t — I’m serious — with the Veluxe Pearlfusions, you’ll feel completely competent.
I wish they would get more love because I think they’re absolutely fantastic gems in the MAC line.
The limited edition Veluxe a Trois collection features six $25 Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow trios (along with some other products)…
- Claretluxe — a light pearly pink with a clean burgundy pinkish red and a purple
- Collective Chic — a peachy champagne with a green khaki and a plummy brown
- Cool Companions — a light gold with a green and shimmery satiny black
- Fabulous Three — a champagne beige with a rosy pink and a burgundy (online only)
- Gingerluxe — a tangerine with a yellowish gold and a deep, sparkly khaki (online only)
- Lapisluxe — a white sparkle with a sparkly ocean blue and a deep grayish navy
In these pics I’m wearing the Fabulous Three trio, and dude! — they made this eye look easier than taking candy from a freakin’ baby (which, incidentally, would be a terrible thing to do). You’ll be able to buff and smooth these shades in your sleep.
Although the Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadows are the star attractions in the Veluxe a Trois collection, the release also includes Lipsticks ($16 each), Cremesheen Glasses ($20 each), a couple of mascaras and a brush.
I’ll be posting more reviews and looks wearing the collection as I get more familiar with the products over the coming days, but among the lipsticks are nude beige Cremesheen Lipstick in How Tropical, malty warm nude Cremesheen Lipstick in Pillow Talk, warm brown Amplified Lipstick in Royally Riotous, reddish pink Cremsheen Lipstick in Flowerscope, deep purplish berry Cremesheen Lipstick in Quelle Surprise and berry Cremesheen Lipstick Heux.
And the Cremesheen Glasses include soft beige Softly Lit, soft taupe-ish nude You’ve Got It, nude tangerine Over Indulgence, wine brown Richly Revered and black Dark Outsider.
Two mascaras, Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash and Haute & Naughty Waterproof Lash ($22 each), join the 247 Flat Shader Brush ($25) to round out the collection.
