Hi beauties! On May 29th, 2014, the new MAC Cosmetics Pedro Lourenço Collection launched online on the MAC website.
It will be available in-stores on June 5th, 2014 (select locations in North America)
The collection itself is gorgeous. This is a statement from the MAC website describing the line and the artist:
Brazilian fashion designer Pedro Lourenço continues to enchant the fashion world with his couture-like sensibility and meticulous attention to detail. The child of fashion designers, Lourenço grew up in São Paulo and has been designing since the early age of 12. M·A·C’s collaboration brings his unique elegance to a colour collection that emulates the same delicate balance he achieves in his design work. Daring, saturated hues are juxtaposed against soft, frosted nudes, all encased in limited-edition, black packaging with a chic, velvet finish.
There are a total of four lipsticks included from this collection. They are all amplified finishes which I love because they are extremely pigmented but not drying on the lips like some of the matte colors can be from MAC. I am a sucker for packing and this collection is just so visually appealing. The velvet black and gold lipstick packaging is just so elegant and classic.
I picked up two of the lipstick shades: “True Red” & “Peach Beige”
Lip Swatch: “True Red”
Lip Swatch: “Peach Beige”
As you can see the colors are very pigmented! The “True Red” is exactly that – a vibrant true red with a slight orange undertone. The “Peach Beige” shade is very very light – I’d recommend mixing it with other colors to custom make your own shade. It also depends on your skin tone – if you have very pale skin the “Peach Beige” will not look as light, but on someone with a medium to dark skintone it will definitely be too light to rock on it’s own. Pair it with a good lip liner and gloss to create the perfect nude pout! These lipsticks retail for $17.50 U.S. / $21.00 CDN and are LIMITED EDITION. ❤
