Welcome to a new category of posts called Beauty Buzz! In this category, you’ll get the latest info on new products and launches directly from the beauty press release wire.*
The latest make-up buzz comes from MAC:
MAC’s Art Supplies launches for a limited time as of April 1st, 2010 until May (or while quantities last!). The collection of grown-up/make-up crayons and markers sees the introduction of two new limited-life products to the MAC arsenal: i). Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner and ii). Pro Longwear Lipstain Marker. Art Supplies also features the popular (and an artistrhi favourite) Greasepaint Stick revisited in eight different shades. (I’ve already made my list of what colours I want to add to my kit!).
Check out my previous review of Greasepaint from the MAC DSquared and Style Black collections:
Lipstain Marker is another item on my ‘lust’ list – I smell the potential for a bridal kit essential with this toted long-lasting lipstain. I have yet to find a lip stain that I like, so here’s to hoping that MAC’s version works better and (at least) offer more colour selection than lip stains I’ve tried in the past.
Currently, I’m test-running Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner (that I received as a sample for consideration from MAC). Long-lasting and non-smudging? We’ll see about that! Check back in a week’s time for a review!
Here’s the official word from the MAC wire:
Art Supplies is everything you need to paint the ultimate self-portrait: focus on a Greasepaint Stick in eight fabulous, limited-life shades – the ultimate inky colour payoff is an homage to the success we had with Style Black and DSquaredÂ² last season. Use as a Shadow or Liner: ludicrously long-wearing, transfer- and water-resistant, flexible and five-star comfortable. NEW Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner with an exciting new shimmering sparkle effect, will also launch in limited-life, featuring six slick, smooth, sextronic shades. NEW Pro Longwear Lipstain Marker has the doodle fun of a pen, but with sophisticated, light and long-wearing results. Itâ€™s all about artistic freedom!
*(Often times, I’ll receive product that I hope to review in advance of the actual product launch, but alas the schedule doesn’t always permit! Hopefully, this set of posts will help to keep me on my toes and up-to-date with my product reviews/previews, as there’s no point in reviewing too late and once the product’s not readily available to the public!)
