Are you ready for MAC’s Colour Ready Collection?

MAC Colour Ready launches in North America on April 2nd, but here’s a little preview of two of the three new products to MAC. Colour Ready is primarily about prepping the face to be able to take on bold, intense color (hence the two wickedly intense hot pink lipsticks, the bright chartreuse eyeshadow, and so on).

Update: MAC has created three new Prep + Prime products, and it has now been confirmed that all three products are part of the permanent collection.

Temptalia’s Recommendations

Must-Haves: Prep + Prime Line Filler

Nice-to-Haves: Show Orchid, Rapid Black

Skip: White Frost
