A Fantasy of Flowers
A few weeks ago, MAC invited me to a magical fantasy of flowers showcasing the latest Spring-Summer collection. Click to know more about the Mineralize Skin Finish and shimmering products that’s the glowing statement this season.
It happened at MAC Rustan’s Beauty Source Makati, which is one of my favorite cosmetics heaven in Philippines. Upon entering I saw this lady that’s like a living flower!
I had the chance to video the captivating performance (yes, you know the theatre person in me!) but unfortunately my copy is missing so I’ll just share some pictures. But more than that, I really noticed the nice finish of the face colors and base of the model, well-reflected by the intense light. From that sight, I knew that the Mineralize Skin Finish products were used.Then we had the chance to play with the limited edition collection. I’ve featured the line before in my LOTD because of the unique colors and the fantastic finishes of one of my favorite lines of MAC, Mineralize. I always like how MAC challenges my imagination with those amazing visuals! This reminded me of the Glamour Daze collection with its soft pastel hues, making these two my favorite limited ed collections of the brand.As always, I use my eyes for an eyeshadow demo to know the consistency and coverage of its pigmented products.Upon swatching, I realized that the Mineralize collection are always consistent with its product quality. It’s very unique with its mirror finish!
If you have read my review on the new Mineralize x 4 shadows (which is more expensive), you can notice that this one is a bit subdued and lighter as well. With the photo of the palette above, you can see that the size will reflect the lower price.The glosses are in CremeSheen Glass format which is more subdued as well. The lipsticks are all in their lustre formats and upon swatching, they’re very sheer and light but unique colors are still staying true to its packaging and visual. I also like the nail colors which are creamy and frosty in texture. And of course the pigments which show intense color and finish with the colors used in this collection. Now my top picks are the Mineralize cheek colors! The highlighters and blushes show very good 3d finish, high intensity in terms of glow, but with a very subdued yet unique colors! I actually bought another highlighter because I finished my second Mineralize cheek color product already!
All in all, A Fantasy of Flowers is one of my favorite limited editions this season with its MAC-unique colors and finishes that are perfect this season. Hurry and check out which color suits you as I heard that the supplies are running out, to make way for another colorful and playful collection soon!
