M·A·C Flashtronic.

I have been longing for this collection from M·A·C Cosmetics. Flashtronic is full of Lipglass and Mineralize products. In addition to the three new Mineralize Skinfinish powders, M·A·C is introducing six new limited edition shades of Mineralize Eye Shadow. Look at how beautiful they are!

mac_ft_b.jpgPictured from left to right are the six Mineralize Eye Shadow's ($14): Ether (Deep aqua with silver, black and gold veining); By Jupiter (Light taupe with beige and deep brown veining); Lovestone (Raspberry with wine and copper veining); Quarry (Sky blue with olive, coral, and beige veining); Tectonic (Yellow gold with lime green, warm brown and black veining); Yellow gold with lilac and chestnut veining).

The shades are "A sheer, pearled, mineralized powder eye shadow with up to four shades baked together in one pan". They feel incredibly lightweight and smooth on soft and shimmery.

The rest of Flashtronic includes the Lipglass's ($14) - Perfectly Pink, Flashtronic, Young Spark, and Electro-Lush. And the Mineralize Skinfinish Powder's ($24.50) - Northern Light, Gold Spill, and Global Glow.

I can't wait to try out the limitless combinations of these products, and will definitely have fun with our M·A·C make over night tonight. I will post pictures over the weekend.

If you caved on any of the newest M·A·C Collections, let us know what you decided on, and how you like it.

Flashtronic is available on counters and online now.

Rush to the M·A·C counter today. Rush Metal just debuted, and you are going to want to check these shimmery metallic hues.

I love this for the ultimate summer bronze look.  In the picture I paired the pigment in Rushmetal, and the lipstick in Frenzy, along with the essential eye shader brush 239. I can't wait to have more time to play.

The Rush Metal collection includes four lipsticks and eight pigments.
Lipstick $14.00
Thrills - Rosy copper with gold pearl
Frenzy - Soft muted pinky-peach beige with golden shimmer
Soft Lust - Tan with white pearl
Fast Lane - Mauve with silver pearl
Pigment $19.50
Rushmetal - Rich copper sparkle
Revved-Up Icy rose with reflects
Gold Mode - Tan Gold
Mauvement - Cool taupe with gold pearl
Off The Radar Warm orange with gold sparkle
Copperized Olive green with gold pearl
Quick Frost - Creamy white with soft green pearl
Cocomotion - Dirty gold with olive undertone and gold sparkle 

Oh, how I love using pigment. They are so fun to play with. I love to make my own lipglass out of them with the clear lipglass. The possibilities of using pigments are really endless. You just can't be afraid to play with them, and use your imagination.  Shadow, liner, highlighter, gloss, on your nails, in your hair. And these colors do not disappoint.

Rush Metal is available on M·A·C counters and online now. And stay tuned for information on the new Flashtronic line tomorrow.
