Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

M.A.C Week: Temperature Rising launch and product information

M.A.C usually has a release or two every month which reflects the trends of the season. This June, where it's summer in the U.S., M.A.C presents Temperature Rising, a sizzling collection that is inspired by steamy summer nights and sweaty bronzed skin. The collection is all about warm, smoky colors with well-placed dazzle and requisite brights - the M.A.C trademark, of course!

The Philippine launch happened last Saturday at Rustan's Glorietta. One of the country's top models, Jessica Yang, graced the event. A M.A.C makeup artist demonstrated the scorching hot look of Temperature Rising using the products from the collection while a DJ scratched tunes in the background.

Here's a demo of the look, in photos! Later on you'll see a few swatches I've done on the lipsticks. 

Using the Bare My Soul quad, the MUA applied the dark eyeshadow all over the lid and topped it blended layers of the deep green, gold, and taupe.

He also applied the deep green on the lower lid

With strong eyes like this, contouring must be done to define the features without adding too much color to the skin (Soft Sand Bronzing Powder)

The lips were also kept close to its natural tone - yet sparkly - with the new lipstick in Sheer Seduction


How do you like The Look?I think it's great for evening events! It's something I'd definitely wear myself. ^_^ Here's beauty blogger Phoebe sporting a different look, which is lighter on the lids and lips. Now this one can be appropriate for the day!

Anyhoo, I've done a few swatches for you as well.


Love. This. Nail polish! It's called Tropical, a super glitter bronze frost.

You knew this was going to happen. I'm crazy about purple and purple-based lipstick and Feel My Pulse, a vivid magenta, feeds that insanity. :P

Caliente, Altered Beige, Feel My Pulse


Here's the product catalogue and prices.

So there you go, hope you enjoyed my photo story. Thanks to the M.A.C team for inviting me as always!
