M-A-C’s awesome, Sheen Supreme Lipstick Collection is launching tomorrow, March 3, 2011.
But another collection, a denim-centric one, is launching tomorrow as well, and I’m giving you a sneak peek!
Who doesn’t love denim? It’s an American staple. The new collection by M-A-C called JEANIUS is described by M-A-C as follows: “Is there anything more enduring (besides love and heartbreak) than denim? Jeanius is a celebration of the journey – country cousin to haute couture – the whole world wanted to go on since America made it a national obsession. Since tooth-and-nail workwear jumped the pond in farmer’s overalls to gussy up in the glam of the great Paris couture houses…France may take the credit for creating it in 18th-century Nimes (de Nîmes = DeNim), but bright young American women took it higher! M∙A∙C keeps up with a Jeanius collection of moody blues and indigo ink, the quantum of modern cool, with four new limited-life denimized Eye Shadows, along with new limited-life shades of Lipstick, Lipglass, Blush and Biker Blue & Frayed to Order Nail Lacquer. Like the faux-metal “snap” on the Eye Shadow…completely riveting. “
My Take on the Collection: I only got a few pieces of this collection, so I can only extrapolate from those pieces what the rest would be like, but to me it’s all biker blues and lots of plum and pink. That makes it cool and easy to wear. Here’s the rundown on the collection *with my notes, on the pieces I tried, starred.
Eyeshadow ($19.50 U.S. / $23.50 CDN)
*these are over-sized eye shadows, much larger than the ordinary M-A-C eye shadow compact size, so there’s more to love. Each piece has an overspray that makes the product look like your favorite pair of jeans. The overspray will be wiped away as you use the product, so pay attention to the description of the color underneath
Diva In Distress Mid-tone gray with silver pearl (Limited Edition) * this shadow is a semi-sheer, iced blue-tinged with a tiny bit of silvery shimmer. But while the lovely light blue-grey is trendy and flattering–I just wish the large chunks of silver pearl shimmery blended better on my lids.
Motorhead Mid-tone blue with copper pearl (Limited Edition) *this is a deep navy, but it’s brighter than the more matte deeps of Winter, sparkled with a bit of copper perle. It makes a modern smoky eye, or a gtreat liner
Stove Pipe Black Black with copper pearl (Limited Edition)
White Jeanius White with silver pearl (Limited Edition)
Lipglass ($14.50 U.S. / $17.50 CDN)
Docile Chrome pink peach with gold (Limited Edition) (Repromote from Fabulous Felines, ’10)
Indigo Pink Deep burgundy with blue pearl (Limited Edition)
Painted On Grayish beige with gold pearl (Limited Edition)
Lipstick ($14.50 U.S. / $17.50 CDN)
Acid Washed Grayish beige with gold pearl (Glaze) (Limited Edition)
Pretty Please Pale pink pearl (Lustre) (Permanent)
Riveting Rose Deep burgundy with blue pearl (Frost) (Limited Edition) *it’s pretty if you like deep cool tones that are intense, purple-red. But the frost finish and deep color isn’t something that everyone can wear equally well. On pale skin it looks dramatic but the frost and intensity also makes it :goth.” On deeper, cool complexions, it makes more sense.
Nail Lacquer ($14.00 U.S. / $17.00 CDN)
Biker Blue Black base with purple and blue pearl (Frost) (Limited Edition)
Frayed-to-Order White matte with soft pink duochrome pearl (Matte) (Limited Edition)
Blush ($19.50 U.S. / $23.50 CDN)
Overdyed Bright magenta (Satin) (Limited Edition)
Pink Cult Mid-tone neutral pink (Matte) (Limited Edition)
Penultimate Brow Maker ($17.50 U.S. / $21.00 CDN)
Penultimate Eye Liner ($17.50 U.S. / $21.00 CDN)
Rapidblack True black (Permanent)
