M·A·C Prime Focus.

As I have gotten older, I have faced the fact that I need more than just good makeup and skin care.  I need the extra help of primers. I consider primers to be a part of my skin care routine as thy are a very important step in the overall process.  A good primer not only helps to keep makeup in place all day perfectly, it smoothes the skin, protects the skin, even it out and more.  It really makes you skin the perfect canvas on which to apply makeup.

M·A·C has their Prep & Prime line that features just that. Products to prep the skin and prime it for perfect makeup application.  Today, they are adding to it with these new beauties and they are calling it Prime Focus.

We’ve become THE high-performance Prep + Prime player backstage at Fashion Week. To keep up with the demand to achieve an even more awe-inspiring level of Artistry, M·A·C puts the latest must-haves right in the Pros’ hands again this season by taking Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer SPF 35 global. This major multi-tasker functions as colour-corrector, face primer, and UV protector with light hydrating properties all-in-one. But innovation never idles; so we’re introducing NEW  Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder/Pressed to glide on skin after for an undetectable and smooth, silky-soft, colourless aura, in the form of a compact cache to freshen up on-the-go. Day or night, runway or real time, these Primers are the start-to-finish every girl needs to get where she’s going in record time, ultimate chic! These are fast times. We’re running with it.


Take a look at the collection!

PREP+PRIME FORTIFIED SKIN ENHANCER SPF 35 - $30.00

  • Adjust Light - neutral peach
  • Illuminate - Pale lavender
  • Neutralize - Pale yellow
  • Recharge - Bronzy orange

I have tried Illuminate and Neutralize.  As I am self tanning right now, Neutralize is the shade for me these days.  It evens out my skin making the need for less foundation. It softens my lines and makes my skin just look better.  Illuminate is a more pink/lavender shade that totally brightens a look when used under makeup.  IT was too bright for my tan, but I can see this shade being perfect under foundation in the winter when I am more pale.

PREP+PRIME TRANSPARENT PRESSED FINISHING POWDER - $23.00

This finishing powder adds a beautiful soft focus look to the skin.  I am applying it with the MAC Bufffer Brush 182. It is a kabuki style brush that blends the powder into my skin so there is no white look left behind, only smooth flawless looking skin.

PREP+PRIME TRANSPARENT FINISHING POWDER - $23.00

All of the new Prime Focus products are available at all M·A·C locations, 1.800.588.0070
and maccosmetics.com today. Be sure to use all the right primers before using the MAC Holiday 2011 shades.

M·A·C Seasonally Supreme.

Here today and part of the permanent collection, M·A·C Seasonally Supreme is beautiful range of lipsticks in twelve new shades.

We said “Oui!” to the style-savvy world of Europe with our Euristocrats colour collections, and now we’ve set our sights on the Far East where fashion is a-boom!  It’s where the latest runway fads appear overnight to make their gotta-have-it debuts and where fashion addicts indulge their cravings with fierce cult-like fascination. Tokyo scenesters, Seoul trendies, Shanghai’s brand-conscious sophisto-chicks, all are contributing to make Asia a haute-pot that stylishly sizzles. To add to the frenzy: M·A·C’s new collection Sheen Supreme, a sweet and spicy palette of twelve cream-or-frost-finished shades that speaks to the region’s colour preferences in the fusion of Lipglass’ high-shine finish with the saturated colour of a Lipstick. Colour-customized, culturally tuned. What could be more Supreme?

I love the Sheen Supreme lipstick.  The vanilla scent, the rich pigmented colors, all with a high glossy sheen is what beckons for me.  I usually use lipgloss over lipstick for a sheen, whether I am going subtle or not.  This one of the very few lipsticks that I can use without a gloss and am continually happy with the result.

Here are the new colors in the collection.

LIPSTICK - $14.50
Tea Ceremony Neutral beige pink (Cream)
Sheer Mandarin Mid-tone yellow orange (Cream)
Blossom Culture Soft pink with pearl (Frost)
Korean Candy Bright orange-red (Cream)
Supreme Style Light coral pink with pearl (Frost)
Fashion City Neutral coral pink (Cream)
Happy Hibiscus Creamy white pink (Frost)
Royal Azalea Bright mid-tone pink (Cream)
Asian Flower Creamy lavender (Cream)
Insanely It Watermelon pink (Cream)
Bare Again Pinky neutral beige (Cream)
Supremely Confident Pale nude (Cream)

Seasonally Supreme (speaking of seasons, is it too early to look forward to the MAC Holiday 2011 Collection?) is available at all MAC locations and online at maccosmetics.com.

M·A·C Colourizations Eye Shadow Duo Photos.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the MAC Colourizations Eye Shadow Duos yet, get them while they are hot. 

Like I said in my original post about the collection, I most often use two or three eye shadow shades in a look.  In the summer months though, I definitely keep it more simple and use probably two shades the most, and that is why I am loving these duos - and one of many reasons why you will love them too. I wonder what color combinations will be featured in this years MAC Holiday 2011 collection?

I was lucky enough to receive some of the Double Feature Duos, and have them front and center for you to look at too.

The Colourizations collection launched at Nordstrom July 29th, and is now available at all M·A·C locations and online at maccosmetics.com.
