Sneak Peek: MAC DSquared Review and Swatches
You up for Musing a little MAC DSquared with me?� How about a little sneak peek at the goods?
This October MAC teams up with fashion duo Dean and Dan Caten (yes they are twins) of DSquared for a launch of a new makeup collection that’s based on their Fall and Winter 2009 runway show. DSquared was one of the few collections I paid particular attention to during Fashion Week as I always find their designs both fun, fabulous, and very wearable. Like their couture their collaboration with MAC is simple and wearable. Featuring minimal makeup looks with touches of interesting color, this Fall release is sure to please.
I’m not one for contouring my face but those who are will rejoice at the release of two shades of MAC Sculpt and Shape Powder. The compact contains two contrasting shades of matte powder to shape and contour your face.
Since hauling one of the MAC Tinted Lip Conditioners with the Hello Kitty release I admit to being a little obsessed with them. Hate the packaging, ‘ello germs…but absolutely adore the awesome color pay off and moisturizing formula. Fuchsia Fix is a beautiful deep pink. The shade is simply revamped packaging for the release as it’s already very much available from MAC.
Two shades of lippies make an appearance which are contrasting from nude to loud. Nude Rose is a sheer nude pink and Blood Red (the funnier of the two) is a pretty berry red.
And finally MAC Greasepaint Sticks which are quite a star in this show. If you’re not relishing the idea of the pot version these should appeal. Quite nifty as it can be used to line and define or use it as a base a la a shade stick. It’s a release of two shades which are V and B. V is a royal purple and B is a navy blue. Absolutely adore these.
Overall, if you’re a big fan of hauling MAC LE items particularly collaboration collections this should appeal. The packaging isn’t as elaborate as some past collaboration collections but the items involved make up for that, particularly the Greasepaint Sticks.
Are you hauling MAC DSquared when it releases October 1st?
