Guess what? I learned a new Photoshop trick! Just in case you didn’t notice, but I have gained the power of artificial lens flares. Beware, photography! Yep, it’s totally cheesy/fabulous, but this new MAC collection practically asked for it.
This is the MAC Future MAC collection, and it’s available online right now and coming to stores April 7th.
The collection is all about the next generation of hyper-luminous Mineralize products and new horizons of colour, and true to their description, the lip and skin products have amazingly unique textures and sparkle.
Keep reading to sneak a peek at the future of beauty…for April at least!
Future MAC: The Pout of the Future
The Mineralize Rich Lipsticks glide on the skin and build up to really unique colors. “Touch the Earth” is my personal favorite for a cool nude, but I can’t wait to rock “Ionized” and “Metafabulous” as well. I plan to do a future post (heh…) using and showing these lip products, so feel free to post your questions below, and I will try to tackle them in the next post.
The Mineralize Glasses feel similar enough to the regular Lipglasses (tacky and beautifully scented) but have multi-colored glitter instead of any significant pigmentation. The glitter hovers on top of the lips and skin, and I think these would be fun to layer on top of lipstick.
Future MAC: The Future of Eyes
Moment of silence for the palette that broke in-transit, “Full Orbit” — a gorgeous silvered taupe. These kinds of smokey khakis are my weakness too! The other Mineralize Eye Shadow X4s ($46) came in an icy blue (Dark Energy) and a warm gold (Nano-Nude). I gravitated toward “Dark Energy” the most because the icy blue looked really modern. I grew up in the time of chokers and blue eyeshadow, and now those things are back, but in a cool-girl way.
This was also the first time I tried MAC Studio Eye Gloss ($22), which gives eyes an editorial shine. I actually felt and heard my eyes blink… Interesting concept, but it’s not for me! It has a crazy tacky texture that I find difficult to remove from my skin, fingers, and clothing.
Future MAC: The Future of Skin
On to my favorite part! And I am going to call this now, but the MAC Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish ($32) WILL sell out. I wouldn’t wait on this one if you’re interested. The silver portion of the pan has a few glitters, but I don’t see them on my skin once mixed. I feel like my highlight with this is from the heavens.
The Warm Rose Mineralize Skinfinish ($32) is pastel pink with pink reflects and is, I believe, from the permanent line.
Last, but not least, the Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel ($21) and Barbados Girl ($21) are sooo divine. Barbados is deeper and more intense than Pink Rebel, and I can see either one working for most skin tones.
Fun side-story, but my best friend one time accidentally used a bottle of Lustre Drops instead of her usual eye drops. She drove to work crying glitter, and I don’t think any other memory of our friendship makes me laugh THAT hard.
She gave me her bottle of Lustre Drops to make sure that never happened again. It was so terrible…but best story ever amiright.
Whew! This post covered a lot, so feel free to ask any questions regarding the collection, and I’ll reply or answer it in a future post. And as always, I’d love to know what you guys have your heart set on!
See you in the next,
