I love limited edition make-up packaging, and MAC do spectacular designs. Their Isabel and Ruben Toledo collection has one of my favourite designs so far!
I’m reviewing three items from the collection today:
* Ripe Peach ombre blush ($54) is my favourite. It’s a flattering blend of coral-hued pink and apricot, with gold sparkle. The gold sparkle isn’t all that obvious on the skin. The colours in this blush look amazing on warm skin, and it’s buildable and easy to use.
* Sin matte lipstick ($40) is a reissue from the standard collection. The colour is a spectacularly vampy blackened red that’s super richly pigmented and velvety matte. Unfortunately, it’s very drying and unforgiving if you have flaky lips – you’ll have to break out the lip scrub! The other lipsticks in the collection are supposedly less drying, if you’re feeling a bit lazier.
* Caligrafy Modern Twist Lash mascara ($42) is a navy mascara with light blue microglitter. It’s a bit edgy, but subtle enough to be reasonably work safe, and lasts all day without smudging. I’m not sure what to make of the wavy brush yet – I think I’m still adjusting to the unusual shape.
