Stand up and take a bow, whoever workshopped this concept in product development at MAC. This is how you recapture former dedicated customers and respark a little of that old black magic. A product that’s bang on trend internationally, that has a bit of the flair and sass that I used to associate with MAC, and something that’s fun without being tacky or redolent of little girl make-up.
I’ve seen this swatched a lot on a base of primer or really packed on to make the colours pop opaquely, but while I’m not discrediting anyone who has done that, you really can’t get around the fact that it’s a cheek product and is going to be sheer no matter what. This is on the back of my hand without any hand lotion and applied quickly with a clean fingertip, so this really is what you see is what you get.
Don’t bother trying to maintain the gold overspray. It’ll be gone after the first application, so you might as well get rid of it right away. If you’re madly in love with it and want that peachy gold look on your cheeks all the time, just give your brush a quick swipe over Expensive Pink eyeshadow.
Bravo MAC. You managed to not only reignite the bloggosphere with this one, you managed to capture the interest of someone who hasn’t really gone out of her way to purchase MAC products in a few years.
