Summer 2015: MAC Wash & Dry.

I always look forward to the MAC summer collection and MAC Wash & Dry is a little surprising. That is because this one doesn't take us to a tropical locale or normal summer setting, it takes us somewhere different, a laundromat. Yes, a laundromat.

As you can see in the pictures, I have a few of the products from the collection of which I am really liking the Defining Bronzing Powder, Powder Blush and Pearlfusion Shadow Trio.

I have the Studio Sculpt Defining Bronzing Powder in Delicates which is a beautiful natural bronze shade with a little bit of golden shimmer to it. It is on the darker side, but not too dark. I have an NC30 complexion, and it is perfect for me. The shimmer is lovely; I usually shy away from shimmer, but when done right it is beautiful and this is very light and refined. I have been dusting the Powder Blush in Crisp Whites onto the apples of my cheeks and this bright peach shade is great for summer. It is light, yet bright at the same time. It has a brightness kind of undertone to it that really pops on the cheek.

The Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Trio in Permanent Press is my pick out of the palettes for sure. This is the most neutral palette with a deeper shade for lining or smoking out the eye. The Veluxe Pearlfusion formula is so soft, silky and the shadow adheres to the eye feeling creamy. They are well pigmented. I love the mix of shades and simply like to blend the beige-off white color and creamy brown shade together for a simply summer eye and use the dark black with sparkle as a liner - beautiful.

There is not much to say about the lip products except that they are gorgeous, as always. I love a MAC lippie, but the Lipstick in Steam Heat and Tinted Lipglass in Domestic Diva were a little bright for me (just my taste). If I were going with a more subdued look on the eyes or cheeks, these shades would definitely work.
