Art of Powder

At M·A·C the line between Fine Art and Makeup Art is undeniably blurry. We get inspired by the Masters, as well as modern art movements. With this in mind we’ve created a collection of three M·A·C Artist Powders. Spotting the influence behind each design is easy. There’s an op art Optical Bronzer that explores the depth, dimension and sheer illusion of bronze. A Street Art Eye Shadow lets you personalize the eye with a madcap act of pure graffiti – and for those who love random acts of light and shade, an In The Abstract Highlighter. Art pieces indeed, yet when it comes to makeup, a fabulous tool. As any artist would tell you – such palettes empower creation. Make some art.

Eye Shadow Street Art Eye Shadow Graffiti design w/ light brown, white, light cool blue, warm orange, pastel pink & pastel blue
Highlighter In The Abstract Soft pink base w/ yellow gold lines and lavender and midtone pink dots
Bronzer Optical Bronzer Bronze w/ gold pearl and neon pink w/ gold pearl

Art of Powder (limited edition)  is available as of Oct 8th.

Style Driven

“Drive,” she said and theres no mistaking a woman on a mission to get what she wants! And in this case, that would be the ultimate in future-forward pro-longwear technology: a creamy new eyeshadow, plus lipglass that juices up gloss for six extended hours of lasting shine, lip pencil that wont skip-and-drag, and they go for 15 hours that’s about the time it takes to drive from Paris to Monte Carlo plus five hours of still looking flawless for dinner. Breathes and beautifies while controlling oil, keeping a colour-true application for the most natural, even finish. Pro Longwear Concealer mattes immediately with a formula that won’t slip, slide or budge. Our most killer collection of Pro Longwear advances ever.

Matchmaster Foundation

Who doesn’t want a foundation to look as real as your skin tone? With our All Races credo, we’ve redefined what a perfect match should be thanks to theNEW Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation. Simplified, this technology uses translucent pigments to create a formula that enables a fully personalized finish influenced by the subtleties of your own skin tone. Adding to Matchmaster’s true-to-life appeal is its moisturizing demi-matte finish, medium buildable coverage, and line-reducing soft-focus powders that help soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Add the fact that this formula reduces excess shine-creating oil, and who could resist? Matchmaster has the ability to resist humidity and perspiration without losing its smooth skin feel. Launching with a spectrum of 14 light to deep dark shades and making its debut on counter with the 193 Angled Foundation Brush and 190 Foundation Brush… isn’t it time you met this match?

Matchmaster Foundation SPF 15   € 33

Matchmaster Foundation SPF 15 is available in the permanent line as from Oct 15th.

I’m currently on a no-buy for anything beauty-related until November, since I’m saving up for the MAC Holiday collection and the opening of the Bobbi Brown store. Nevertheless, I really love these collections. Especially the Art of Powder collection is a real piece of.. well.. art. I just know I would have trouble actually using it, which would be a total waste of money. Anything in here you want to get?
