Looking at the ad for MAC’s latest Chill collection takes me back to where MAC first started with its make-up artist roots. I love the creative energy of this collection! Yes, the look featured on the model is not an everyday look, but most looks on models aren’t meant to be wearable for us non-model people! Overall, the look is definitely eye-catching, as are the products within the collection.
I received a sample of Icescape, one the of the signature lip glasses of the collection. Icescape is a gorgeous baby pink colour with flecks of pearl. It makes a perfect combo when paired with a bold eye look. Try it with dramatic eyeliner or with a smoky eye, which is always a favourite look this time of the season.
Another goodie in the sample bag was Glitter Reflects Transparent Teal. Transparent Teal looks fabulous worn on its own or layered atop eyeshadow. When used with eyeshadow, it adds an instant pop to the area it’s applied. It can be used atop your highlighting eyeshadow, on the inner corner of the eye or on the eyelid below the crease. Be sure to concentrate the glitter in one area – otherwise you may go from chill to ice princess! On its own, Transparent Teal creates a gorgeous highlighting effect with a subtle light blue sheen. I love adding a bit of it to my moisturizer and using it on the tops of the shoulders, the collarbone and the décolletage for an alluring effect. All you need is a tiny amount (the stuff is concentrated!) and voila – instant glam!
Along with Icescape and Transparent Teal, the new Chill collection offers a liquid liner, false lashes co-ordinating eyeshadows, more lip glosses and more glitter! Unfortunately, the products are limited edition, so grab it before it’s gone. MAC’s Chill collection is definitely on my hot list this season!
