MAC Pret-a-Papier Collection: Overall Review & Round-up
OVERALL, Pret-a-Papier is a softer, more muted collection for those looking for a more natural look–from eyes to lips to cheeks. I still get a very autumnal feel with this collection, and I think that’s why it has me off-kilter. I’m just expecting to see a little more vibrancy with the summer nearing. I see some loving this for its more neutral feel, but I see others frustrated with the general subtleness of the collection.
Must-haves: Fold and Tuck Lipglass, Originality Nail Lacquer, Chromagraphic Pencil, Coral Crepe Paint Pot
Nice-to-haves: Made to Order Lipstick, Pret-a-Papier Lipglass, Tissue Weight Eyeshadow, Instant Chic Blush
- Skip CUT TO FIT if you have shades like Twinks.
- Skip GAZETTE GREY unless you’re willing to wear it with a darker base to amp up the pigmentation of such a sheer shadow.
- Skip GARB if you have pinker undertones (if you aren’t able to try it in person), because it may go orange.
- Skip KRAFT if you have Touch–unless you wear this type of color often–as Touch is incredibly similar, only a smidgen less red.
