MAC Nudes & Metallics Collection
MAC Nudes & Metallics Collection

UPDATED @ 7/11/13 at 9:41 AM PST: This collection is FINALLY! online. You can see it here. I’ve linked the name of each product below if I’ve reviewed it (I reviewed all about Love’s Lure and Restrained, as I did not receive them and this is the first shot I’ve had to buy them, which I did!).

This collection invites the pro artist to explore the lush potential of the monochromatic while offering chic contrasts. The Nude palette is defined by the cool, rich and warm tones of creamy Amplified Lipstick, while the Metallic palette satisfies the fashionable demand for decadently frosted plums. For lip, eye and cheek, both collections offer a selection of four Lipsticks with matching shades of Veluxe Pearl or Satin Eye Shadow and a Powder Blush.
