MAC and Mickey Contractor Collection

Who is Mickey Contractor, and why can’t about a billion people live without him? The answer involves breaking out into song and dance, because long before Glee, Mickey made the dashing heroes and exotic enchantresses of Bollywood Cinema into the famous faces throngs of fans want to look like. As M·A·C’s Director of Makeup Artistry for India, he’s more than an icon to a glamorous Eastern audience – he has mentored in-the-know Artists around the world for over three decades. These exclusive collections of Mickey’s musts are all about natural skin tonality and total performance, in addition to colour with a touch of exotic cine-magic. Foundation, Concealer, Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder, goddess-gorgeous Eye shades, Lipstick, Lipglass and Blush, with his favourite brushes to star in your own big Bollywood hit.

Edited @ 12/29 at 10:24AM: JUST heard back from MAC HQ – they are confirming in-store launch in top 22 MAC Stores only, and they are working on a list.  Due to the holidays, they can’t give me an exact date as to when they will have the list for me.  LiveChat is reporting it will be online for everyone nearer to the official launch date.

Help me help you and readers like you — if you know your store has confirmed they will have Mickey Contractor in their store, let me know!

MAC Cham-Pale: Overall Review & Recommendations

OVERALL, Cham-Pale stays true to its name–pale, light, and shimmering.  If you prefer matte, satin, or more pearly finishes to your makeup, I don’t think Cham-Pale will be the right collection for you.  On the other hand, if you love shimmer, shine, and glitter, it may be just perfect.  From the glittery, glimmering, high-shine Lipgelees to the sheered out, frosted paint pots, this collection is all about finishes that catch light.This also appears to be a collection that is better worn with products you own and not exclusively products from within the launch itself–you may find it is shimmer overload if you don’t mix and match!
