The MAC Brooke Shields collection is now available through October 30th!
This limited edition collection features shades Brooke Shields chose for both day and nighttime looks. The packaging is a light grey shade with the MAC logo and Brooke’s signature embossed in orange. It’s quite a pretty collection to look at from a packaging perspective, I tell ya. I love how the lipsticks are in a square tube. And the nail shades are in thick ice cube-like bottles (the same as the Estee Lauder bottles).
The collection features a range of colors for face, nails and lips and does have a slightly higher price tag than normal.
The first shade is a pale shimmery pink.
The second shade is a light champagne/peach shimmer.
The third shade is a light peachy/pink shimmer.
The fourth is a metallic copper.
The fifth is a light mauve shimmer.
Ok first off I love these shades, they are so feminine, soft and pretty. They go together beautifully and I keep staring at them. The first two shades were incredibly light, so you don’t get a ton of payoff from them. The one thing I strongly dislike about this style palette is that he first and last shades are in this super thin strip, so it’s really hard to get the color out.
Cherished features a bright coral pink and a burgundy rose.
Knockout is a bright orange-red.
Excite is a bright orange-red (cremesheen).
The shades in Cherished were nicely pigmented and creamy. Knockout is a really pretty, gloss but just a little uneven on the lips. Excite is an excellent bright orange-red shade. It’s vivid, pigmented and really pretty.
Scone is neutral tan matte.
Brunette is a medium cool toned taupe.
First off, sorry for the horrible photo, all of my swatches of these came out a bit blurry for some reason. The thing I thought that was weird with the Bronzing Powder in Scone was the compact doesn’t have a mirror inside! I feel like it should have one. Aside from that, it’s a good light/medium bronzer. The Brunette Veluxe Brow Liner gave me some serious grief. My pencil was super hard and scratchy. Even when I tried warming it up between my hands it was patchy and uneven on my skin. No bueno.
Dignity is a light coral creme. This applied a little unevenly but by the third thin coat it was covered nicely. It’s a pretty, feminine shade.
My favorites from the collection were the Mortal palette and Excite Lipstick. I do love the packaging but not the extra cost. The Gravitas palette, which has 15 shades is $85, ouch!
You can find this on the MAC site now and in stores as well.
