Here’s what the press literature says: “Artists use watercolour, oil, chalk, pastel, pencil, ink. We use makeup. Both require a bold vision and a perfectly primed canvas to start. New innovations to ensure the Artist’s idyll is perfectly realized: Prep + Prime Skin Brightening Serum evens out any skin tone and Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50 helps stop future damage with ultimate determination. The state-of-the-art way to prepare skin for a flawless makeup application. Prep for Colour helps every skin type become a modern masterpiece.
I am not quite sure why there are three eye shadow, one Lipglass, and the face products, combined together in this collection, but who doesn’t love more M.A.C. Eye Shadows and lip products to play with? You will see a * where I have personal experience with a product.
Here’s the rundown on the Prep for Colour collection:
EYE SHADOW Suggested Retail Price $14.50 U.S./$17.50 CDN
Hey: (Veluxe Pearl) Warm mid-tone beige *lots of shimmer and a peachy feel–perfect later with a (faux) tan
Prepped for Glamour: (Frost) Ashy/dirty brown *it’s soft, and has a mauve-ish vibe
Sorcery: (Satin) Reddish mid-tone brown
PREP + PRIME SKIN BRIGHTENING SERUM Suggested Retail Price $40.00 U.S./$48.00 CDN *striking black pump bottle dispenses a serum that absorbs quickly and evens out skin tone. Use it with moisturizer and SPF day and/or evening. It feels a bit cooling and tingly, and made my skin a bit glowy.
