Product Picks From The New MAC Collections
MAC came out with the Starflash collection last week and while we love us some MAC with all the cool colors, I seem to get most excited when they release a new product altogether like the Eye Shadows ($14.50) in this collection. There are twelve new shadow colors to wet your whistle and what’s different about these? What I mainly noticed was no residue. What I mean by this is when you swipe a makeup brush through any powder, you have some residue that does not adhere to the bristles. Swiping and swishing the brush through the shadow and I got no residue, just color on the bristles. Pretty cool that there’s no waste.
Each color has a slight pearly finish and the colors are totally buildable, which I like. Color picks: Sunset B. (frosty clean midtone pink), Star By Night (frosty midnight blue), Grand Entrance (frosty neutral peach beige). Will these end up being a staple part of the collection? Time will tell.

Love the long wear lipsticks in theory but hate when they flake off? Their new Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolours ($25 @ maccosmetics.com) from their new Lustre Twins colllection are your answer. Swab the Lustre color from one side on. Let dry and then brush on the glossy side. The gloss never seems to last as long as you want it to but the color remains and does not flake off. And my lips were fully colored all morning! Color picks: Gypsy Rose/Shimmer It (Berry red with gold pearl / Top coat: White gold with multicoloured pearl) and Red Reflection/Mirror (Deep berry magenta with pearl / Top coat: clear with white pearl). These could end up in the Hall of Fame so we'll keep you posted as we try more colors.
