DSquared² by M-A-C- Cosmetics just hit stores a few days ago and I thought you’d want to know a bit about it. DSquared² was created for M-A-C with designers Dan and Dean Caten, Canadian twins with a celebrity following that includes Madonna, Britney and others who like their “street cool” clothes. The makeup look they’ve created starts with a strong, sooty,blackest-ever wild-child eye, and a new Greasepaint Stick in blue and violet versions, and Pro Gloss to create it. Skin is neutral and perfected, with drama provided by high lighting and low lighting from Sculpt and Shape Powders and the 165 TaperedCheek/Highlight. Drama for lips? That’s courtesy of totally nude Pro Lip Erase,followed by a light Lipstick and Lip Conditioner. Put the final touches on this party look with a dramatic, DSquared² eye. As M-A-C – describes it, the look is: “Ziegfeld Follies by way of GreyGardens, a bit dishevelled, a little Girl Interrupted, both dramaticallyhip and dangerously sexy”
….but is this collection just for celebrities and rock stars, or is it wearable — a must-have, or one to pass up? I personally am already in love with a few of the products in this collection. For example, the TINTED LIP CONDITIONER SPF 15 $14.50 U.S./$17.50 CDN. The vanilla-scented, soft as silk lip balm has a deep pink, sheer, moistly shiny look. I love the better-than-natural pink that makes It makes even dry, pale lips look like a little girl’s, again. Definitely a must-have now through all those dry, dull months of Winter, ahead.
And the DSquared² GREASEPAINT STICK $17.50 U.S./$21.00 CDN in “B” is a teal that MAC calls “Bright yellow blue.” It’s just gorgeous smudged on eyelids, or more conservatively, used as a liner. It also comes in “V” a bright blue violet that gives you that trendy purple/plum look in a creamy, easy to use/tote, stick form.
I’m not one to try contouring and sculpting–I just don’t have the talent, but the SCULPT AND SHAPE POWDER $14.50 U.S./$17.50 CDN lets you add cheekbones if you have the talent, or use the light powder to finish your makeup, the brown/bronzer as you would, a bronzer. Bone Beige/Emphasize – Palest cream/Tan or Accentuate Sculpt – Pale blushed beige/Soft taupe brown
All of the products in this collection have the DSquared² logo on the packaging–it looks modern and fun!
