So I'm sure you know by now last week was a preview launch for the MAC - Makeup Arts Collection featuring collaborations by Richard Phillips, Maira Kalman and Marilyn Minter.
I went to the event at MAC-Soho, it was pretty ok! Nice wine, nice nibbly bits, an nice sweets!! There were a few protrait artists around so you could get your portrait taken, mine doesn't look that much like me, the artist who drew my portrait did really cool drawings of the ladies in the place, but I digress.
I admit, I wasn't that excited about the collection when I first heard about it!! But after seeing an hearing buzz, I became intrigued! I knew the Photorealism quad was going to be a must have, the others looked way too dupable. I don't know why I picked up the Purple Shower eye shadow, I like purples and plums...I might return it when the collection actually launches. I picked up Full Body lipstick by mistake (it was the wine,) but I do like the shade. I think I'll go back for Hold the Pose lippie. I picked up On Display liplglass, can always use a good plummy gloss. I was going oogly over the pigmens!! But the LE piggies were the ones to get! So of course I picked up Brash & Bold and Push the Edge pigs! B&B has a buildable shimmer, and Push the Edge is really strong shimmer! I was looking at the Fushia glitter, but it looked really purple...I'll check it out at Pro when the collection hits counter. I also intend to go back for a few of the pencils, a Specktraite/MAC employee has done some really pretty facecharts with the pencils!! I was inspired!
The best bit is, you were given a free poster with purchase...I chose the Marilyn Minter of course.
