If any brand’s got their finger on the pulse of makeup lovers like me, it’s got to be MAC. Especially when it comes to [INSERT ANY MAKEUP CATEGORY HERE OR] lip palettes. They’re hands down one of my favorite lip palette lines…and I don’t even consider myself a big lip palette fan!
It’s the colors they choose to put together — they just have a knack for it — like does this one go with that? Why yes, MAC, it does, and I can’t even figure out how/why!
Take their new $40 Fall ’13 Forecast/Lips palette, for instance, and its six fashion-forward fall shades. None of the colors, all of which have MAC’s preternaturally pigmented Amplified lipstick finish, seem wasted or like they’re merely taking up space.
The colors that come with the chic limited edition set stalked New York and Paris fall fashion week catwalks, and now they’re looking for love on all of our faces. From colors for work lunches (I’m thinking any of the neutral colors on the palette’s left would do well) to drinks at a stylish lounge (any of the shades, really), this palette has it covered.
And even though the dark purple and burgundy shades might be a little much for a quick Petco run or a walk around the neighborhood to visit Charlize, I don’t care. Cue the curtain please! I’m diggin’ them both.
Heck, I bet you could combine any of the darker shades with the lighter shades, too, and create your own custom colors. All of them seem to harmonize pretty well.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at select MAC Pro stores and online in North America and internationally

Guess who had a little too much caffeine today (BUZZ!).
Sure got a lot done, though. Now I just have to try to get to sleep…
How are things over there? Nice to get Monday out of the way, isn’t it? I have a pack of gold star stickers here on my desk. Can I interest you in one?
I’m just getting ready to watch the U.S. version of Being Human on SyFy. You ever watch that?
