All Around Me Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!


Here are the looks I've worn for the last four days, using some products from Mac's Temperature Rising Collection.


 From left to right: Rich Glance, Copper Strip, Life's Luxury, Polished Jet.

The  Powerchrome Eye Pencil's work great as an eye shadow base, eye shadows, or eyeliners. You have to work fast when blending, as they set quickly. However, once they're on, they aren't moving! 

 From left to right: Ripe For Love, Hot Nights, Sun Dipped, Nude On Board. 

Both Ripe For Love and Hot Nights are intensely pigmented, finely-milled, and gorgeous! Ditto for the Pro Longwear Bronzing Powders in Sun Dipped and Nude On Board. 

 From left to right: Golden Elixir, Liquid Passion, Soft Serenade, Underdressed.

Mac's Golden Elixir Strobe Liquid gives a beautiful, glistening, warmth to the skin. This Summer, I've rotated between this and Tom Ford's Fire Lust to give my normal to dry skin an extra luminous boost. The lipglass are nice, but nothing out of this world. My favorite of the three I purchased is Underdressed- a pretty bronze-brown with cooper, hot pink and chartreuse shimmers.
 
Warning: the following swatches are of the long discontinued Pro Lash Colour Mascaras. I do NOT advocate using expired mascaras on yourself or clients. I would NEVER (and have NEVER) used an expired product on a client. However, if I'm looking to create a certain look on myself, I'll take the risk and play Evel Knievel with my lashes :P

 From left to right: Prim Rosy, Tiger Lily, Boston Fern, Periwink-Wink. 

I love colored mascaras, and I was glad to see many brands include them in their Summer collections.

It's been sweltering over here, so I've kept my makeup simple (kind of) by applying a wash of color on the lids, no eye liner and finishing the eyes with a colored mascara. Hope you enjoy these looks.

  1. I couldn't resist the beautiful soft bronze of this collection though I'm not usually a sucker for pretty packaging.I was on a no-buy but my sweet guy picked up Nude on Board for me. (Yes, I already have NoB from the Hey, Sailor! Collection!...but I hit pan on it a couple of months ago. MAC should make this a permanent product.)

    I'm happy to have it. :)

    1. I loved the bronze rubber packaging, and it was one of my main reason I picked up this collection. Glad you were able to get your hands on another Nude on Board, very pretty bronzer.

      MAC should make many thing permanent, but hey, we can only hope :)
