The MAC Cosmetics Face and Body collection was recently released and is certainly one that has generated many reviews. The Face and Body foundation was repromoted and a number of new products were released as well. Two types of products were reviewed: Pressed Pigments and Pro Sculpting Cream.
The Cosmetics brand consists on a countless amount of products that are of the highest quality. There are many items that are available at any time to consumers, and limited edition collections as well that are only available while supplies last. Due to demand, a number of products often sell out within a few hours after their launch. The fall season has arrived, and the Face and Body collection is the perfect staring point for consumers to add “must-have” essentials to their collections.
The first products reviewed were two of the Pressed Pigments. They retail for $21.00. They can be applied wet or dry. It is a highlighter, and there is a shade to compliment every skin tone. The brand says of the product:
“An intensely creamy highlighter offering extreme pearlescence and versatility of finish. Apply dry for a high shine, or on damp skin for a dramatic wet look. Provides eye-catching sheer-to-moderate buildable coverage and natural dimension finish. Pressed Pigment is delicate. Please handle with care.”
Two shades were reviewed: Light touch (high pearl powder in W10 shade) and Spot lit (high pearl powder in NW35). The other shades available to consumers are Warming Heart (high pearl powder in NW20), Day Gleam (high pearl powder in NC30 shade), Beaming (high pearl powder in NC 50), and Deeply Dashing (high pearl in NW55).
The pressed pigments certainly contain a good amount of shimmer, but I did not encounter much fallout after application. The products will allow the user to achieve a gorgeous glow to the skin by way of a naturally radiant complexion.
The final product reviewed is one of the Pro Sculpting Creams. These retail for $20.00. They are a cream-to-powder formula for sculpting areas of the face. MAC says of the product:
“A cream-to-powder formula for sculpting and shaping key features. Silky-smooth, easy-to-blend and neutrally-shaded. Apply where extra dimension is needed, eyelids included. Provides moist, skin-soothing, natural-looking sheer-to-medium buildable coverage.”
The shade reviewed is Naturally Defined (warm beige). It is the perfect shade for those who do not need a deep shade and that want a very natural finish. However, there are various other shades that were released in the collection. The shades are: Accentuate (peachy beige), Pure Sculpture (neutral pink beige), Coffee Walnut (deep dirty, cool brown), Copper Beech (warm golden brown), and Richly Honed (warm deep brown).
There was also a limited edition brush (163 Flat Contour Brush) that was released in the collection which would be a wonderful tool to apply to the sculpting creams. These products could certainly be seen as essentials. They are easy to apply, and there are shades for every skin tone.
