PREVIEW: M·A·C Giambattista Valli Collection

Pictures of the M·A·C and Giambattista Valli collection just hit my inbox and it’s too beautiful not to share!
MAC and Giambattista Valli
Fashion designer Giambattista Valli brings his effortless elegance and luxurious celebration of the female form to a stunning collection of timeless lipsticks. There are a total of five lipsticks and one gloss, each housed in a beautiful shade which corresponds with the color inside. 
MAC and Giambattista Valli CollectionM·A·C and Giambattista Valli have been working together for almost 10 years ago so it was only fitting for them to create a one- of-a-kind collector’s edition!

Why focus solely on lip products for the collection? “Lipstick can revolutionize a woman’s look. A lipstick shade or texture can radically change the way you are feeling in the moment. Makeup not only completes a look, it often makes the look,” said the designer. “I love the idea of dressing up your lips in couture colors. The matte, highly pigmented shades are very modern and contemporary for a daytime look and then you can add a touch of the lip glaze over the top for a more sophisticated evening look.”
MAC Giambattista Valli CollectionThe lipsticks retail for $17.50 USD ($21.00 CAD) and are:

  • Bianca B: a pale white-pink (matte)
  • Tats: a bright hot pink (matte)
  • Margherita: a yellow bright peach (matte)
  • Charlotte: a rich yellow-red (matte)
  • Eugenie: a dark cherry with blue undertone (matte)

There’s also a Crystal Glaze Gloss ($23/ $27.50) in Lena, a clear with subtly multicolored pearl.

I haven’t received any samples so I can’t comment on wear and pigmentation but M·A·C’s matte lipsticks rarely fail me (especially their newest formulations).

The M·A·C Giambattista Valli collection is available in-store July 9, 2015 through August 2015.

buenos aires collection by mark cosmetics

mark avon buenos airesI can’t remember the last time I took a proper vacation so when beauty brands come out with their summer collections, I like to pretend that I’m headed somewhere. Sad but true. The new mark collection captures the Buenos Aires vibe with the fun, bold colors. This six piece collection is bright and vibrant with just about everything you’ll need.

The mark. Saved By The Gel Waterproof Eyeliner – Buenos Aires ($11) is a long-wearing formula that easily glides on. BONUS: IT COMES WITH A BRUSH. Seriously my favorite thing about this gel because I never have the right brush. The Caliente Eyes Eye Shadow Palette ($18) features five shades (four shimmery and one matte) and can be applied wet or dry (great for taking it day to night). For a sun-kissed look, try the Caliente Glow Blush + Bronzer Compact ($16). Lastly there are two mini nail lacquers in two limited-edition shades: futbol blue, a kicked-up color inspired by Buenos Aires’ hometown team, and Palermo purple.

The collection is available now online.
