Beauty

M.A.C. is regarded as one of the most daring, and innovative, cosmetic companies of our time. Their products are worn by women all over the world. Through their philanthropic efforts and creative ideas, M.A.C.’s mission is to make women feel beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside. To reinforce that mission statement, M.A.C. is collaborating with renowned actress Catherine Deneuve on their new line, Beauty Icon 3.

Considered a classic beauty, with an ultra cool exterior, Catherine is lending her name and signature style to the new M.A.C. line. Created in close collaboration, every element in this collection is pure Deneuve. Just like her image has always been chic, cool and “fashionably swinging,” the new line will reflect the unchanging modernity of Deneuve’s iconic looks. The colors in this new collection are comprised of bold, rich jewel tones and soft, sexy hues. From the shadows, lip glass, lip lacquer and nail polishes, every aspect of the collection is pure classic Hollywood glamour.

Take a sneak peek at this line and find out the hottest colors to hit the scene this season. Whether you’re looking for something bold for a wild night out, or something subtle for a day at work, you’ll definitely find it in this stunning new collection.

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. If that’s the case, this first quad will unleash the sex kitten inside. Included are Sketch, a rich burgundy, with hint of shimmer, Rye, a dirty gold, with frost, Scarab, khaki green with yellow frost and how about a little Thunder to stop them in their tracks? This dirty mauve with a slight frost rounds out the signature M.A.C Quad, Thunder Eyes.

Feeling a little Laze-y, and you don’t want to go that over the top with your eyes? Try the soft, subtle tones from the Laze Eyes quad. Laze is a shimmery plum, Shale is a taupe with a hint of pearly pink. Kid, is a beige cashmere and Vanilla is a matte soft ivory. M.A.C. Quads are always four coordinating Eye Shadows, which allows for easy application if worn together (or can be worn separately).

The complimentary lip colors, are just as intense as the shadows. A throwback to the 50′s Hollywood glam, you can make a bold statement with the deep brown/ reds of A Rose or Bourbon lip stick. Want to Ignite someone’s fuse? Try this terracotta Lacquer that has as much color as a lipstick, but the high shine of a gloss. For extra staying power, any of the lipsticks and lacquers can be worn with the M.A.C. liners.

If you’re just looking for a hint of color check out, Dusk, a shimmery mauve, or Elegant Peach, a pale coral frost. Guaranteed to last all day, the M.A.C. Lip Glasses are best known for their extreme shine and staying power. Don’t look too closely, the high sheen is blinding! All the limited edition lip colors are packaged in a signature deluxe chrome champagne casing.

To rounding out the colour collection are the Pro Lash Mascara, Eye Kohl and Brow Set. Lengthen, thicken, groom and line. Everything you need to create that smouldering “come hither” look. The soft and creamy Blushcreme, like Hunger, brings a natural glow to your cheeks and the high gloss Nail Lacquer literally makes you stand out head to toe!

If that wasn’t enough, designed to coordinate with the colour collection, the face collection is a compilation of powder compacts, concealers, moisturizing tint and brushes. All capture the timeless beauty and elegance of Catherine Deneuve. In addition, specially formulated to coordinate with a signature motif, three colors from the collection, pink, olive and plum, have been used on the beauty powder and blot powder compacts in a stylized harlequin pattern. The limited edition items embody the high-class style, beauty and passion of leading lady Catherine Deneuve.
