MY MAC WISH LIST - "IN HIGH DEF"


My WISH LIST COLORS/ITEMS WILL BE HIGHLIGHTED IN THIS RED COLOR

I got this email alert today and I have included some of the marketing and pics from this new "Collection" as well as what I added to my wish list.


LIPSTICKS

First there are 4 lipstick shades that go from this "Resolutely Red" which looks similar to "Russian Red" with more pink undertones to a pretty nude color called "Close To Real". These are my favs and on my wish list from this group.

MAC claims on this collection: "Cameras everywhere, media madness, instant images flashed around the world in seconds. You ARE being photographed! Makeup designed for the new-technology demands of the professional world, for girls and boys who want to look good no matter who's looking... "

Lipstick
US $14.00



Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

WISH LIST:
Resolutely Red (pictured) - Deepened claret (Lustre)
Close to Real - Light Neutral peach pink (Lustre)

OTHER AVAILABLE COLORS:
High Def - Mid tone Neutral Coral (Amplified)
Sharp Focus - Deep Brown Plum (Lustre)


FACE AND BODY FOUNDATION


There is a Face and Body Foundation. MAC website info states it is a water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body.


I can't wait to try this product, I haven't been out in the sun, tanned or even done tanning lotion so I would probably be a C6 or an N7. If you order this product on line or get it in a MAC store you defiantly want to try it on your skin. Either go into to the counter with no makeup and have them test it or at least give you a sample before purchasing so that you can try it.

US $32.00



COLORS AVAILABLE:
C1 C2 C3 C4 C5 C6 C7 N1 N2 N3 N5 N7 N9
US $32.00



MINERALIZED SKINFINISH NATURAL

A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day.
Right now, the only product I have for a powder is my Mineral Veil from Bare Minerals which is really messy even in the compact that you can buy to carry it in your purse, so I desperatley need a compact and I have heard so many great things about this product.

US $25.00



COLORS AVAILABLE:
Light Soft -(pale beige) Light Medium - (Pale golden beige), Medium - (Soft creamy beige), Medium Plus -(Tan beige), Medium Dark - (Caramel beige), Medium Deep -(Rich golden tan), Dark - (Deep caramel), Deep Dark -(Rich golden bronze)


187 DUO FIBER BRUSH

A large full circular brush used for lightweight application and blending of face powder or pigments. Use to create soft layers or add textures. Made from a soft blend of goat and synthetic fibres.

I have this brush already, as well as the Sigma Dup and a Sephora Brand and my favorite is the Sephora Brush. When I use a liquid foundation I use Bobbi Brown and I would like to give the foundation above a try, but I will probably continue to use my Sephora Brush when using it. If you don't have a foundation brush, I highly recommend that you try it. You will be amazed at how even your coverage will be.

18 cm US $42.00




188 SMALL DUO FIBER FACE BRUSH

A flat-topped, full circular brush used for lightweight application and blending of any formula colour – fluid, cream, powder or pigment. Ideal for creating soft layers or adding textures. Made from a soft blend of goat and synthetic fibres.


Now I do not have a brush like this and I would think it would be nice to use around the nose areas and places that a smaller brush might be better for. This will defiantly be on my wish list:)

17 cm US $34.00




Well, that's the latest from MAC. To see all the photo swatches on the website go to http://www.maccosmetics.com/ Even though the pictures are great on the site, if you have a MAC in your area I would check it out before buying. Make sure you are aware of the return policy for the MAC Counter where you shop to make sure you can return or exchange the product if it's not the right color or maybe it just doesn't agree with your skin. Changing foundations can sometimes take a few weeks to tell whether it's going to work for you.

Please let me know any of your thoughts and any products you are interested in from this new collection. Thanks everyone and have a LARGE day :)
