MAC A Novel Romance Collection.

The first of MAC's fall collections is here. It is all about romantic shades full of color that are perfect for making the transition from summer to fall easier than ever. And if the cheeky romance novel images don't draw you in, which is very reminiscent of the makeup colors in the collection by the way, I don't know what will. This is A Novel Romance.

I am really into the warm fall shades of this collection. From the bold, bright lipsticks I received to the light tinted lipglass', I have been alternating wearing them all to change up my look.

The Fun Ending Powder Blush is a beautiful satin blush that is a great neutral peach blush that will work great on light to medium complexions. I am normally an NC 30, but have a faux tan right now, and it really looks nice with bronzer, but I know it will be beautiful with my paler skin too. I will be keeping this one in my makeup bag for fall and winter too.

I am usually not too into purple and pink shades, but how can I not love A Passionate Quest Quad. It has such a pretty mix of light pink as a base, with an orchid pink that I am loving on my lid and a navy shade that is gorgeous in the crease and as a liner too. If you like purple shades at all, do check this one out.

Also worthy of a look are the Electric Cool Eye Shadows. These shadows are sort of a gel-cream hybrid with a bit of bounce to them. I like to apply these with my finger. They offer a wash of color with a lot of sparkle. They are very similar to CHANEL's Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadow if you are familiar with those.
