MAC Monday – MAC X Jeremy Scott and Hyper Real Glow

 

MAC X Jeremy Scott – Hailed as one of fashion’s rebels, Jeremy Scott creates decadent high fashion from American cultural obsessions. With a fanatical following of pop music’s biggest icons, the irreverent designer provokes and pushes into fashion’s outer limits. Scott’s collection for M·A·C introduces manic colour for eyes, lips and cheeks specially packaged in cheeky tribute to the days of mixtapes, boomboxes, new music and unhinged creative expression taking root on city streets.

MAC Jeremy Scott is one of the coolest ,the most original and fun design I have ever seen from MAC.  I think they put a lot of thought into the design, not so much into the product itself. The only thing I got from this collection is Acoustica (ahhh still remember the excitement over buying my first CD ever. I am a child of cassettes, VHS… That makes me sound pretty old).

CHEEK X 3: ACOUSTICA

A Jeremy Scott cheek palette that features a highlighter, bronzer and blush. These easily blendable, long-lasting shades are packaged in one palette for portability and are specially outfitted in a one-of-a-kind CD mixtape design in cheeky tribute to the days that new music and unhinged creative expression took root on city streets. Hailed as one of fashion’s rebels, Jeremy Scott creates decadent high fashion from American cultural obsessions. With a fanatical following of pop music’s biggest icons, the irreverent designer provokes and pushes into fashion’s outer limits.

Shades included:

– Heaven in Your Smile (pale frosty highlight with frost) (0.07 oz.)

– Acoustica (warm brown with matte) (0.13 oz.)

– Wall of Desire (midtone pink with satin) (0.11 oz.)

This cute palette in a shape of CD contains very dupable colors but it is convenient if you are on the go or you need all in one palette for the travel. The best of three is the highlighter – creamy, soft like a butter and just the perfect amount of pop without being metallic or emphasizing imperfections. I would love to see MAC release this gorgeousness as a single product.  Blush seemed too bright for me but actually once applied with a light hand and blended out it looked so good. Just a hint of peachy pink goodness. Bronzer was the first of three – especially once I was trying to make hand swatches it did not blend well, it went on patchy but once applied with the brush on the face it performed well.

 

 

 

 

M·A·C Hyper Real Glow Palette: Flash + Awe is a palette of three pink highlighters with an irresistibly creamy powder formula.

Fall fast and hard for the highlighting palette perfection of Hyper Real Glow. This palette packs three hues of the highlight for supercharged, ecstatic-in-love-level radiance. Try to keep your cool in this threesome of pink shades. With an irresistibly creamy powder formula, shades blend effortlessly to leave an ultra-reflective, yet flawlessly smooth sheen. Get lost in the hyper real.

How many highlighters is too many? Don’t ask me I want them all!  Every year the past couple of years seems like a year of the highlighters. I love glowy healthy looking skin and when I see one of my favorite brands releasing new highlighters and in the palette and for such an amazing price (39.50$) I need to get it. What I love about these is the texture – it mostly reminds me of Becca highlighters that super pigmented with almost creamy feel to it.  I picked up Flash + Awe which is lighter of the two and leaning more neutral. I am hoping that this Hyper real release might mean that MAC will re-release Hyper real foundation too. I have never tried it but I know so many people raving about it. Maybe with an improved formula? Let’s hope. These blend well and do not fade throughout the day, while giving enough glow without looking metallic or over the top and without emphasizing imperfections. Packaging is thick cardboard – I know some like this it is more environmentally conscious, while others are not happy about the “cheap cardboard” feel … you can never please everyone.

 

 

 

I purchased these directly from MAC Cosmetics. Also, they have the new Select program anniversary gift – it is the large brush roll. I wanted this one for a while and I was so excited to get it as a free gift. If it’s your anniversary as a Select member you can add it from your account while in the checkout process.
