MAC Cosmetics launched their Spring Colour Forecast collection just this Wednesday at MidValley Megamall in a colorful fiesta. You can spot it in the MAC stores already and if you are a fan of MAC products, you would already know about this.
Spring 2010 for MAC is a huge affair if the collection is anything to go by. There are 4 mini collections within the main Colour Forecast collection which can be mind boggling unless you are systematic.
First, pick a colour you like – Pink, Coral, Plum or Amber. If you are warm toned, go for Coral and Amber. If you are cool toned, try Pink and Plum. If you are neutral, go crazy! 😛
I’ve got some pictures for you so be warned that this is a picture heavy post. Do not attempt to download if you are on dialup – but wait. Who is on dial up these days?! 😛 With that dire warning given, let’s start then shall we?
MAC Spring Colour Forecast 1 – Pink/Lavender
Colour Forecast 1 is pink/lavender based and is a rather large collection as you can see with eyeshadow singles, lipsticks, nail colours, pigments, fragrance and mascara – whew!
The Pinkaura fragrance (RM98) smells sweetly floral – a little too sweet and too floral for me but if you like light floral scents, go for it. I’ve never seen fragrance sell for so cheap 😛
Also look at the Blush Ombre 2 toned blush in Azalea Blossom (RM105). Its very pink-purple and definitely one for the cool toned girls.
My eye was caught by the Crush Metal Pigmented in Stacked 1 which is a set of 4 pigments selling as one (RM135). You know, MAC should have done this or something similar years ago! However, the container reminds me of something you can buy from a supply store (which I have) and from experience, these acrylic containers break easily and get brittle after a while. MAC SA on hand agreed with me 🙂 Props to MAC for coming up with this idea but perhaps they might want to find a more durable container.
I liked the 4 cool pink toned colours which is a first for me. It was too crowded on the launch day so I’ll go back and check it out in a couple of days to see if I really like it enough to buy it 😛 You’ll have to click on further down for the rest of the collection.
MAC Spring Colour Forecast 2 – Coral
Please insert small scream of horror here. My photos of the collection did not pass muster, I’m sorry 🙁 Its all blurry and grainy and ick! But I do have a picture of the Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach.
This is the infamous one that’s been sold out on the MAC website in like erm… forever? 😛 Online rave reviews are sending MAC’s Ripe Peach blush flying off the shelves! The colour is stated to be Light Coral and its a pretty little thing with the gradational colour that reminds me of a sunset. I’m longing to hit the beach if you can’t tell. Perhaps even get a tan so I can wear this coral blush without looking like a pumpkin. Problem is, I don’t tan – urgh!
On light skintones, use a light hand and its a pretty peach coral blush. You gotta be slightly warm toned to wear this one though. RM105 I believe. Gotta hurry before it sells out here. I’m still thinking about this one (probably to my detriment once it runs out 😛 )
Another item in this line that struck me was the MV2 fragrance – a warm cookie batter dough smell that is great if you like foody scents but not so great if you don’t. Yani liked it, I wasn’t so thrilled 😛 There is also a Crush Metal Pigment in Stacked 2 which is 4 metallic golden toned pigments. Not very interesting to me unlike Stacked 1.
MAC Spring Colour Forecast 3 – Plum
If you are the dark seductive sensuous type, this might be your collection. Colours are plum toned and deep and look luxurious and plush. I like the look of that Imperial Splendor nail lacquer (RM42). Even the name sounds luxurious! And MAC is finally going back to their 4 pan quads! I sorta missed those because I used to have a ton before I gave them all away.
MAC Spring Colour Forecast 4 – Amber
Strictly for warm toned girls only. Colour Forecast 4 reminds me of the desert with dusky sloe eyed beauties with eyes rimmed in kohl peeping out at you from behind their silken head coverings.
I saw a lady having her makeover with this collection. She had dark skin but was warm toned and she looked amazing! She was impressed too because she promptly bought everything used on her 🙂
If you were looking for colour swatches, I’m afraid I can’t oblige simply due to the humungous crowd at the launch and everyone wanting to have their makeup done. But there are a ton of swatches online from people who take swatches better than I do 🙂
If you are reeling from information overload now, its alright. So was I. So, take a deep breath, go back and read it all again, then come back and tell me : What’s your colour? 🙂
