What if you could make up your own color story? If you don’t already know, a color story is a run down of all the products and their descriptions when a cosmetic line releases a new collection. For instance, when I post upcoming collection information for MAC, those are color stories. Now, what would your color story be, if you could dream up one of your own?

Here’s my color story, complete with “pictures.”

(See the rest of the pics by clicking the “Read more” link!)

Femme Fatale – Bold matte red with purple undertones (matte)

    Those are awesome! I would definitely buy them. :) I especially love the purple, blue, and 2 red eye shadows, jezebella lipstick, and all 4 pigments. You should send them to MAC, you’re so creative!

  2. Malice

    I’m a big big fan of your site!
    I suppose this would be the first collection where I would buy EVERYTHING!
    Send your pics and discriptions to MAC 😉 Probably you should send it to MAC :)
    Have you edited the pics via Photoshop?

    • Aw, I’m glad you liked my made up collection! I would totally send it to MAC if I thought I had a chance, haha.

      Yep, I edited them using Photoshop :)

  4. Victoria

  5. lisa

    WOW! This is just amazing! This is a line I would definitely consider purchasing. It would be cool if you teamed up with MAC :)

  6. Angie

    ur mean, lol. i got all excited thinking this was a new collection ;x

    • Tayloe

      You and I both! The colors are simply amazing. I’d get Insatiation, Scarletto, and Sirenic. Plus all the pigments! You can see the editing on the lipsticks(the squares of color). Might I suggest a soft brushed eraser? I can only assume you used layers. Photoshop is my BEST FRIEND, besides makeup of course…

  11. Erin

    Actually the quads remind me a lot of Balloonacy.

  12. Erin

    Er, not the quads, the pigments.

  13. I’m confused.. did you “make” the colors for the pictures.. especially for the lipsticks?? They’re so pretty. Are the acutal MAC products or did you make the colors yourself?? How did you do that?! (If you made it yourself, it looks so real.)

    • I made the colors using Photoshop :) I took existing MAC photos and then played around with them in Photoshop to change-up the actual color you see. Luckily MAC’s photography is pretty bunk in terms of color accuracy, LOL. MAC actually uses B&W photos and then overlays color on top for a LOT of their products – at least that’s how it used to be on the website (which is why color accuracy sucks!).
