Sugar, spice, and everything nice would be the best words to describe MAC's latest collection: Baking Beauties! I like that it's not overly saccharine with the pink, cream, and mint; the dark lipstick and luscious new Paint Pot shades are an interesting contrast to what could've been a bland sweets-inspired collection.
I managed to attend the launch of this collection in Glorietta two Sundays ago, so I have some pictures of the demo! (Don't worry, the rest of the branches only had BB last weekend). The makeup artist, Noel, did the Baking Beauties look on the model of the day. That would be dramatic chocolate eyes and a pale pink lip, same as the promo images.
Bare faced and ready to go
The Paint Pot in Eclair was applied all over the lid, almost up to the browbone.
That's such a lovely chocolate shade, with gold pearl
Then he applied the Pearlmatte Face Powder. The powder is not very pigmented which makes it ideal as a finishing layer rather than a blush.
That's the lipstick in Raspberry Swirl, described as a "light white blue pink" (cremesheen)
The finished look! That lipstick isn't for everyone, but I think the eyes balance it out to make it a nice editorial or evening look. Or you can lower that color down to the lids only, and wear a warm lipstick for an everyday face.
I managed to get swatches of a few of the lipsticks while I was at the counter, too!
Pure Decoration is a light white peach
Raspberry Swirl is cute!
While Devil's Food is dramatic. I love it!
