The new MAC Alive + Olivia Collection greets you later this week (July 8th) with an array of vibrant, feisty shades for lips, eyes, and nails.
For the Alice + Olivia Collection MAC went with some rocking shades that are playful, fun, and a bit rock and roll. I admit it’s not my favorite MAC Collection to date but some of the shades may appeal as I found at least one or two items to love.
The pigments consist of Later (Black with Purple Pearl), If It Sparkles (White with Pink Pearl), and my personal fav, Partylicious (Turquoise with Silver Pearl). Partylicious definitely captured my fancy rather quickly as I don’t own a single shade like it in pigment form. The bright teal will be ideal for a sizzling Summer eye look. If It Sparkles should grab the interest of those who pay closer detail to their highbrow area s this is an excellent highlighter. Later is the least eventful for me and probably will work as a liner and that’s about it.
The Dazzleglass Cremes in the collection are all very, very fun neon shades of color that should tickle those who love a bit of glamorous sparkle and boldness on their lips. Sparklicious is the most wearable of three and makes a great topcoat for lipsticks or stains with its creamy pale pink white shimmer. If It’s Pink is wearable shade of neon pink. It applies subtly and can be built up in intensity for extra pop. I Want Candy is a bright hot neon yellow. This shade was for the most difficult to wear out of the three but applies subtly on bare lips but a bit more vibrant on top of lipsticks or stains
And finally the nail polishes should garner the nail fanatics interest particularly Morning After which is a creamy turquoise. So Rich So Pretty is a bright shade of purple with pearl and Military is a matte black with silver silver suede pearl.
All in all I get a punk vibe from the collection. If you’re a fan of A + O this will warrant a special place on your wish list however if you aren’t, you might care to skip as none of the shades seem particularly eventful or must have to me and with so many other collections coming out that do appeal, I feel like you can save your money for something else. I guess it’s debatable though since this is how I’m seeing the collection.
However, some of you may find some real gems in the release as the colors are all very feisty and fun.
