Just launched: the Fruity Juicy Collection from MAC! It’s home to some gorgeously tropical summer-inspired shades for eyes, lips, and face — and also a few cute accessories/brushes. (I’m actually kinda bananas about the eyeshadow palettes, especially.) I have a few fun pieces of the collection to share that MAC kindly sent over for review. The packaging of this collection is perfection!
Sail away on a sweet scent-sation of frootilicious tropical colour. Go bananas in vibrant lipsticks, or zest up your life with Cremesheen Glass and three new Eyeshadow x 6 palettes. Sundream the days away with Bronzing Powders or Pearlmatte Face Powder. Then chase those last rays with Lustre Drops, while the evocative scent of Prep + Prime Fix+ sets the mood for whatever the evening heat may bring.

Of the products I tried — this one was my favorite! I have to be honest — sometimes I find the shadows in MAC palettes to be stiffer than the singles, but of course that depends on the formula/shade. The Oh My Banana Eyeshadow X 6 palette is stunning and creates those orange and burgundy eye looks that are growing in popularity. The only shade I found a little troublesome was one of the mattes (All’s Rosy) — which is sometimes the case. I found the five remaining shades to perform well. I even did a fun eye look for you, but as I got to the last part — my eyeliner — I messed up so badly that the look wasn’t so hot. I just haven’t had the energy to recreate it, but I probably will! I didn’t think I could wear this palette, but I was wrong. [Read more…]
