MAC CHROMAT COLLECTION… AND SOME CLASSICS! 

Last month I attended a MAC Cosmetics event to celebrate their launch onto the Look Fantastic website. Whilst there I picked up a selection of products from their new limited edition CHROMAT collection, as well as a few classics from their permanent lines. 

I wanted to show you the two lipsticks & eyeshadow palette from the limited edition collection, and two of their new metallic lipsticks.

First up we have ‘#ShockValue’ a bright aqua Blue lipstick in a Amplified finish; Opaque full coverage finish, great pay-off with a light sheen to it.
Then we have ‘Augmented Reality’ a strong candy Red in a Matte finish; No shine, full coverage and long lasting. 
Both feature the architecturally inspired bionic 3D patterned packaging, distinctive across the entire collection. 
RRP £16.50 / $17.50 each.

The two Metallic Lips I picked up at the event are named ‘Cold Front’ (pictured on the left below) which is a frosted periwinkle Blue, and ‘Anything Once’ a Blackened blue with multi-coloured pearl running throughout.

As we know, metallic lips have been trending recently but personally I’m not the biggest fan, I think metallic lips belong on the catwalk or high fashion photo-shoots over everyday wear. But that’s just my taste, however, I do LOVE the colour of Cold Front.
If you do fancy rocking the reflective lip, I would advise pairing it with a simple eye of just mascara and / or some spikey lashes. 
RRP £16.50 / $17.50 each.

Last but not least is the CHROMAT eyeshadow palette

This really is beautiful! Once again, it features the special packaging distinctive to the CHROMAT collection. It contains a vibrant ocean Blue shade and a pearlescent deep Orange – which are complementary colours on the colour wheel, so this means they would work really well together for a contrasting look.
The palette also contains a Brown with a Green pearl running through it, a rich Black, a pearlescent Navy, and a metallic gunmetal shade. 
All of these eyeshadows can be used wet or dry, perfect for a modern smokey eye with a pop of colour!
