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.
WOW MAC, getting all kinds of interesting lately with the new printed eyeshadows you’ve been doing eh? Tartan Tale brought us the first round of printed shadows and now the new MAC Jeanius Collection for Spring 2011 brings us another variation.
Although we discussed the MAC & Mickey Contractor Makeup Collection, I got the official images and word from MAC today. So here’s a bit of a rehash but a good one as this includes all the images plus a quad we didn’t see in my original post!
Take a peek!
I haven’t been online in a few days so first thing this morning I hopped right on to see what the sales were looking like! I had visions of 50, 60, or 70% off great makeup.
Reality set in rather quickly when I realized most of what was on sale I already owned. I also felt like the steals and deals just weren’t there this year because stores actually ran out of stock super fast unlike last year’s bust of a Christmas due to the economy.
How about you?
Run into any great deals?
Here are some I’ve come across!
P.S. I missed posting these on Boxing Day, forgive a girl?
At first glance I got super excited when I seen some sort of collab with MAC and Mickey….yeah, I was thinking the mouse. Turns out they actually mean Mickey Contractor. He’s actually the Makeup Artistry for India, thanks Google! Although his name is commonly associated with Bollywood, his collection is pretty tame.
Let’s have a look!
