MAC Riveting Collection Now Online!
18 February, 2010
First of all, I’m just a smidge annoyed that this is coming straight on the heels of the Spring Colour Forecast, but the good news? This is a smaller collection. The bad news for those of us who are already broke? This is definitely one of the more fashion-foreward collections in recent memory. It may not all seem wearable, but for the artists in all of us, the beauty is the ability to mix and match. There are a LOT of repromotes in this, however they are mostly PRO products…including my favourite MAC product of all time!
Bubbles-Shimmery warm white (Glaze, repromote). This is one that if you want it, you will have to jump on it because when Sugarsweet came out people were calling and buying 4 or 5 at a time.
Metal Maven-Pale frosted silver (Frost)
Riveting-Midtone dirty mauve-taupe (Frost)
Show Orchid-Bright blue-pink (Amplified, PRO). This is the aforementioned favourite product of all time-I have THREE tubes of this as backup! I don’t have many lipsticks I use in my rotation-typically just Port Red, Kanga-Rouge, CARGO Evangeline, and this. The rumour is that these are now permanent at freestanding stores, along with Costa Chic and Saint Germain.
Rock Out-Light icy silver with pearl (Frost)
True Babe-Creamy midtone blue-pink (Cream)
Powder Blush: $18.50 (Both of these are PRO-line, however Dirty Plum was a recent chop, IIRC)
Full Fuschia-Very bright iridescent fuschia (Frost)
Dirty Plum-Deep plum (Matte)
Nail Lacquer: $12
Studded-True silver with pearl (Matte). This looks like an OPI Suede-from swatches I have seen, it looks like a silver version of OPI You Don’t Know Jacques suede.
Wham Bam Glam-True dark taupe (Matte)
Black Enough?-Black (Matte)
This collection also has the 188 (presumably for a more wearable look on the blushes), the 48 lash, and the Penultimate liner. As far as must-haves, for me it will be the blushes and then possibly Metal Maven lipstick. I’m wanting to try some new colours, and I don’t already have a silver in my collection so it may make its way home with me. I don’t need any Show Orchid for oh, a year or so, though.
