Lustre Twins

Not just lip service, we nailed it too! Nine new shades of Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolour with new sheer-pigment top coats, and three Nail Lacquer partners with a sheen never before seen. Glossed over a base that offers more long-life hours, and a super-scintillating sexual power! Lustre Twins can’t live without each other. Codependent couture colour and shine is here.

MAC Cosmetics’ STARFLASH and LUSTRE TWINS collections are now available online! What are you getting?

Here’s what I plan on getting on Thursday: all the Starflash shadows, half of the Lustre Twins (so much for budgeting/control!) — luckily I have 6 sets of B2M! (Hopefully my store will take the depots…)

OVERALL, the new Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolours present an interesting alternative to the clear/mirror gloss coat they had in the past. The new shades are diverse from existing shades, which is great since MAC hasn’t come out with new shades in what seems like forever! Also, Alta Moda? It’s here! I know that a few of you asked me about it, because you couldn’t find it – now you can. My favorite was Ripe & Ready/Soft & Lush and Red Reflection/Mirror. Red Flame/Orange Flicker looks beyond amazing, but I don’t see myself rockin’ the color often (or maybe ever).

OVERALL, Starflash is a new eyeshadow texture, and the collection brings out nine shadows for you to drool over. The Starflash texture is very much like the veluxe pearl texture, albeit with some frost thrown in. I felt like the neutrals had the best texture, because they went on smoothly and pigmented. I think most people will find at least one or two of these to bring home with them, because the colors are diverse. And yes, the kohl powers are back, and I sincerely expect every single one of you to get Feline if you don’t already have it. Okay, maybe not to that degree, but I love it dearly and hope you’ll try it out!
