Future MAC for spring 2016 features a bevy of bountiful beauty items with an eye towards the future. Ewwwwww did I actually just type that? So gross.
Future MAC really is about “futuristic” types of finishes and shades, or at least what we imagine in 2016 as being futuristic. Really when you think about it, the textures or finishes we imagine now as futuristic will be downright laughable in like 2065. We haven’t even invented these *true* futuristic things yet, however, for now we can pretend that silver, icy blue and shimmer is super futuristic. 😉
The collection includes a wide-variety of their Mineralize makeup including lipsticks, lip glosses, eye shadows, nail polishes, eye glosses, lustre drops and eye liners.
Creamy White is a vanilla matte.
Deep Grey is a medium, cool-toned grey metallic.
Soft Brown w/Pearl is a medium, cool-toned brown shimmer.
Dirty Olive is a cool-toned greyish olive.
(I do not believe these are “official” names of the eye shadows, they are more just color descriptions MAC gave them.)
Metallic Silver is a light white/silver.
Teal Iridescent is a pale green/blue with iridescent shimmer.
Black w/Pearl is a black with pearly sheen.
Metallic Blue is a pale periwinkle blue.
Super Nova is a cool-toned, pale white/pink.
Cybernaut is a light, neutral pink.
Soft Brown is actually an intense metallic copper.
Soft Pink is a light, iridescent pink.
Silver is an intense light metallic silver.
(Again, I don’t think these are really *real* names, but why they call the first one “Soft Brown” is beyond me!)
Anti-Reality is a super pale white with pearl.
Inter-Spatial is a light silver with multi-colored pearl.
Telegenuis is a light peach with pearl.
The Zone is a dirty mauve with pearl.
Alrighty so what did I think of these items? Well I tell ya, I was actually impressed with the texture and payoff (mostly) with the Eye Shadow x4 Palettes. They are super soft, very blendable and pretty shades. They seemed nicely pigmented and not patchy or chalky at all. The only shade that didn’t really impress me was the black in Dark Matter. I really like the shades in Full Orbit. The lipsticks have a really nice, hydrating texture and I liked the color Cybernaut, but Super Nova is just too white/pale and it settles into lip lines a lot. The Skinfinish in Otherearthly is definitely the ONE thing to get here if you can only get one. It’s such a pretty design and the colors are rather intense and pretty. I am not that impressed with the Mineralize Glasses. They are super sheer and basically all look the same on the lips, so unless you just want some shine or sparkles, I would skip them as there isn’t much pigmentation.
Apparently in the future we will be experiencing some inflation as well because most of these items seem way more expensive than regular MAC collections.
This collection hits counters/online on April 7th in North America and April elsewhere.
