MAC Cosmetics – Wash & Dry Collection
It’s full steam ahead as the M·A·C Wash & Dry Laundromat opens for business, so make a date with good, clean fun. The suds are rising and the gossip is ﬂowing with this breezy bronzing collection inspired by bright, fresh hues perfect for a full spin or just a quick tumble. All in super-sleek packaging to set your cycle to chic!
Yes, it’s a new limited collection from MAC! Yes, it’s amazing! Yes, I’m once again giddy with excitement, as I am about everything MAC releases. But what’s so special about this collection? What are the standouts, I hear you say. Well, thanks for asking; you know when it comes to MAC, I’m only too happy to answer…
Firstly, let me just make mention of the fabulous sleek packaging; as with MAC’s Alluring Aquatics Collection (yes, still swooning) this is one for my fellow ‘MAC collectors’! Bright, fun and colourful, during these cooler months here in New Zealand, we’ll forever be reminded of the warm weather with this summer-inspired packaging.
While there’s no one particular item I don’t love in this collection, my absolute standouts are:
MAC Freshen Up Highlight Powder – although MAC Freshen Up is defined as a highlighter powder, it is also a blush with three shades. I adore this colour combination. It’s multi-purpose, soft, shimmery and borderline ethereal. The powder is finely milled, it’s not powdery nor stiff; and if you’re in the market for a customisable, super-pretty blush & highlighter, Freshen Up is something you shouldn’t miss from MAC’s Wash & Dry Collection.
Morange Lipstick – a vivid orange-red with an amplified finish. There is something about this colour with the gorgeous limited edition packaging. I wore this one today, applied one coat and blotted to apply again. Boom, lipstick sorted for all-day wear! It’s very long-lasting and I could wear it without a liner. There’s also no drying or flaking – bonus! Morange wears beautifully with the Freshen Up Highlight Powder. I do love that MAC thinks about their collections in-depth; every collection works together seamlessly.
Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Trio – I’m sorry, I can’t tell you which is best, these are all just too damn perfect to choose one trio. Ok, if I have to say one, I guess I’ll say Warm Wash (only because that’s what I’m wearing today) but honestly, they’re all amazing, they’re all MAC perfection, they’re all pure luxury!
