We all know that MAC Cosmetics launches a lot of makeup collections. As I am so into makeup, I tend to like a lot of them, but then some of them are a miss for me. Then there are some MAC collections that totally take my breath away and that is this one; the MAC Pedro Lourenço Collection. From the matte packaging and burnished gold lettering to the barely their nude cheeks and eyes and the metallic glosses contrasted with the reds; it is stunning in its entirety.
Pedro Lourenço is a young Brazilian designer known for his contemporary yet clean style. His first collection debuted at Paris Fashion Week when he was just 19 years old. He has colloborated with other brands for shoes and accessories and now MAC for makeup. I can't wait to see what he does next.
"Daring hues are juxtaposed against soft nudes, all encased in limited-edition packaging. The Nude Quad gives eyes a subtle metallic finish, while cheeks are flushed in Powder Blush (Duo). Cream Colour Base adds an icy lustre to eyes and cheeks as two Nail Lacquers provide an haute flash of colour for a chic complement to any look. Lips make a definitive style statement and a subtle swipe of Lipglass is the perfect finish, guaranteed to intrigue."

How beautiful is the eye quad? These are perfect soft nudes that are great for everyday and so gorgeous with a tan for summer. I love that they are pigmented so they can be seen on the skin, yet soft enough not to be dramatic. These can be worn by anyone.
Also gorgeous is the Powder Blush Duo. It is very light and is great for more pale skins.
MAC knows how to make a red, and these are stunning, aren't they? They are unexpected for a summer collection, but they are such a wonderful contract to a nude eye and soft cheek. Layer the soft metallic lipglass over them to soften it up.
The Flaming Rose nail lacquer is gorgeous and is a great red cream shade. I will be picking up Skin too.
