MAC’s SS15 looks had lots of bold eye colours and natural, understated lip shades. Here are the matching SS15 Trend Forecast palettes:
These are MAC’s descriptions of the eye shades:
Superfresh – light mint green
Humble – soft muted beige-taupe
Power Player – deep burgundy
Blue Forecast – light periwinkle blue with white pearl
Urbanist – muted plum brown with slight pearl
Night Walk – deep eggplant with slight pearl
Seasonally Peach – light pastel peach with pearl
Must Have Melon – soft peachy coral
Bang On Red – bright orange red
Spring Sensation – light pink with pearl
Go Guava – mid-tone rose
One to Watch – magenta
I really like the lip palette for giving natural, subtle colour. I’m less impressed with the eye palette – the colours are gorgeous and I’m really feeling them, but the formula is slippery and I have pretty wrinkly eyelids. These creased on me within an hour, despite lots of primer and setting spray. They do blend amazingly easily though, even with a finger, so they’re easy to fix, as long as you’re happy to be on eyelid patrol all day.
MAC also debuted their new eye glosses with SS15. They’re in the Pro range and rightly so – the colours are amazing but they’re extremely high maintenance. They’re like a lip gloss on your eyes – super shiny, but also very sticky, which I found very uncomfortable. I tried out Medoc, a wine red with various shades of shimmer.
It’s stunningly gorgeous on camera, but I can’t handle the sticky feeling for too long! I’ll leave it for the models. I do hope a longer-wearing version comes out soon, because I’m loving the glossy look.
