At first glance the MAC & Micky Contractor Collection does so deceive. I was thinking, “eh, probably nothing here to see…”
However, there is a gem or two in the rough even if you think the collection might not be suited to your skin tone. The shadows are all wearable in my opinion and one are two are really keepers, the fluidlines will easily be a must have if you’re a fan since the colors are stunning gem shades, and believe it or not the concealers in the lighter ranges might work well if you prefer a more lighter concealer (I always go lighter with my concealer).
Obviously MAC is gearing the collection towards a specific skin type so not everyone will be able to take advantage of some of the base options in this collection however the color products are definitely a go particularly if you like nudes (the lipstick shades are all very nude-ish and beige) or bolder shades (the shadows are all extra bold).
Let’s have a look at some swatches.
I wanna replace the lyrics of Love is All Around with Spring is All Around! But honestly, Spring is SO not around dude, it’s so cold! The good news?
Les Perles de Chanel Collection reminds me it’s not far away now!
Let’s take a look at the Chanel Spring 2011 Collection shall we?
A little sneaky peek to keep us feeling warm and toasty while the weather outside is frightful!
I couldn’t resist the new Shu Uemura Lip Duo & Tints from the Shu Uemura Takano Abracadabra Fantasy Collection for Holiday 2010. I admit I had my doubts they wouldn’t work because my lips are pigmented plus they just appeared very nude (I can’t do nudes) but I wanted to try them out anyway since the promo images really made them look darling.
Did they work?
Ahh Chanel spicing things up this year with their Les Tentations de Chanel Holiday Collection 2010. It doesn’t quite meet the traditional standards in our Holiday makeup world does it?
Delicate shades of brown, pops of pink, and hints of bronze make up Chanel Holiday 2010 and one gets more of a vibe of Spring than Holiday at first glance. But try it out for size and flushed cheeks and a fierce smoky brown eye later and you’ll agree this does indeed speak the language of Winter.
Did you haul it?
What did you think?
Sorry for the the interrupted flow of service today. You might have experienced some lag, slowness, or a 503 or two this afternoon. My server has been kinda touch and go the last few hours but I think it’s back and in working order again. See? Hotlinking kills! MUA’ers are legendary for this…grrrr!
Anyway, I apologize for the problems and hopefully I’m back up and running smoothly.
Now, last of the Clarins Holiday Collection 2010 for you today. I’ve already reviewed the highlighter and the powder which I simply adored and now for the eye and lip products.
