MAC Heirloom Mix Collection


So MAC have launched yet another collection, anyone else struggle to keep up?! The Heirloom Mix Collection launched in November last year, for the holiday season. MAC designed this collection to exude sophistication, with rich dark shades to emanate a rebellious spirit and an avant garde attitude. I like the packaging; the products are encased in black with silver sparkles, or have some element of this. The collection consists of eight Pressed Pigment, two Fluid Lines, two Glitters, five Lipsticks, five Cremesheen Glasses, two Blushes and three Nail Polishes, which are all limited edition. In addition to two permanent Eye Kohls, I received a Pressed Pigment in Regal Affair, and two Cremesheen Lipglasses in Courting Chic and Social Season.

Regal Affair Pressed Pigment is a white based pigment with opal pearl, swatched with fingers this distributes a light wash of the champagne gold glitter, not much of a white base is visible. If you’re like me and a bit of a klutz, a Pressed Pigment is a God send, I’m always nervous around loose eyeshadows as I have visions of it scattered all over the carpet, clothes etc. It’s also more convenient for travel.

This would be a great inner corner highlight, cheek highlighter or just to add a bit a sparkle to an eye look. It’s a mini size at 1.5g, but still priced the same as the full sized pressed pigments (3g) at £17. Courting Chic Cremesheen Lipglass is a gorgeous deep berry red with gold sparkle, it has enough pigment behind it that it can be worn alone.

Social Season Lipglass is a violet shade with what looks like blue and pink sparkles, it’s less pigmented than Courting Chic, so when worn alone gives more of a sheen to the lips than colour. Still very pretty none the less, and both can obviously be layered over lip liner or lipstick for more intensity, they both retails for £19.50.
