Ah I am SUCH a sucker for MAC collections.Anytime a new collection pops out, here is Rina racing to stores to drool all over it. Plus, MAC has amazing packaging when it comes to their limited edition collections, and those little tubes and palettes stay with you, even when the collection passes. I still can’t bring myself to throw away my empty tube of mascara from the Archie’s Girls collection, nor can I ever get rid of the Marilyn Monroe collection lipstick. This month its time for the Wash And Dry collection-an explosion of colour, brow products and summer ready bronzers(granted it’s not summer in South Africa, but hey you can never start planning for summer too early eh?). The collection will hit stores this Thursday, and here your sneak peek.
The collection is heavy on the eye-brow products and it contains not only your Brow Set(R215) but also a wide range of Fluidline Brow Gelcremes (R215), a Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set(R215) and Eye Brow Pencils(R200).Staying on the eye part, the collection features the 3 different Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Trios ,which are little compact eyeshadow palettes that contains 3 shades each in it. It comes in three variations(The Green Clean, Warm Wash and Permanent Press go for R520), out of which I have the Warm Wash for you here.
These shades are peachy orange and copper golds, so they will be good for highlighting and bronzing too.
They contains quite a lot of shimmer, and the texture was a little bit loose, sort of like the MAC pigments. I played around with it a bit, and you can see what the colors looks like on my “model” here.
Pretty handy little palette, and I do want to check out the other 2 colour variations.
4 different shades of the Technakohl Liner(R230) and the False Lashes Mascara(R250) are also available in their limited edition packaging with this collection.
On the lip side, we have some good-old favorites such as Morange and Creme D’Nude in their new packaging, and the new additions are Steam Heat(a vivid yellow red) and Tubmle Dry(light peachy coral) for R230 each.There are also 4 Lipglasses in the collection(R220), in 4 new shades- Girl On Board(light cream nude), Laundry List(vivid orange),Hot/Cold(true red) and Domestic Diva(frosty water pink). Some nail polishes are also in the collection (R155) in two colours- Monday Blues and Washateria.
Finally there are some awesome bronzing products that I can’t wait to get my hands on! There is the Powder Blush(R275), the High-Light Powder(R420), the Studio Sculpt Defining Bronzing Powder(R420) and the Bronzing Powder(R365). Of course a girl needs a nice brush to apply all of this goodness with, and the collection offers you two choices- 125 Split Fibre Dense Face Brush (R660) and the 126 Split Fibre Large Face Brush(R610). Plus you need a little make-up bag to put all of this into, and it goes for R420.
All in all, the collection contains 45 products, and of course I WANT THEM ALL! Check it out in store from this Thursday!
