MAC Toledo has arrived!
This collection is a collaboration with fashion and illustration designers Isabel and Ruben Toledo. Ruben designed the special white packaging, which also has a smooth matte finish that I happen to adore. Everything is white, black and red with a very cool modern graphic feel. Love!

Gorgeous Gold is a muted yellow/gold (veluxe pearl)
Vicuna is a light neutral olive (frost)

Ok so here are my thoughts on everything. I felt like the Eye Shadow palettes were just ok. The payoff was very unimpressive, even though I really loved the actual shades, especially in Bellgreens. The Blush Ombres are super pretty but they too have a very light overall effect. I think Ripe Peach is the one to get of these two because it was a bit more pigmented. The Pearlglide liners are awesome, I especially love Chlorafill because it’s a weird shade. Tarot Mascara is an interesting shade but not sure it would actually show up on my lashes all that much since it’s rather light. The Lipstick shades I tried out are all amazing! I really love Oxblood and Barbeque is gorgeous. Hell they all are. Oxblood in the Lipglass form however, not so much. It was very lip-line-y on me, but the other two were really nice.
This collection will be available online tomorrow (I think) and in stores starting February 5th.
Is there anything here you are definitely picking up?
