Raquel Welch is now MAC Cosmetics newest beauty icon following in the footsteps of Catherine Deneuve and Diana Ross with her own themed collection to be released later this month. This collection features quite a few limited edition products. It features 6 lipstick shades, 4 lip gloss shades, 2 blush shades, 3 beauty powders, 2 eyeshadow quads, 2 limited edition brushes, 2 glimmer shimmers and eyelashes.
I’m pretty excited about this collection. Although the packaging does not really appeal to me, the shades of the products certainly do. In particular, I’m looking forward to the eyeshadows and blush. The new products I’m seeing for the upcoming season seem to focus a lot on purple and blue hues so I’m looking forward to these colors. From top to bottom, meet Goddess blush and Amazon and Primal eyeshadows. I think Goddess will have to be mine.
The lip products look very intriguing as well. From left to right, meet Screenqueen lipstick and Raquel, Body Mind and Vital Spark lipglosses. For me, the lipsticks and lipglosses are always the best part of a collection so I am really looking forward to seeing the rest of these products. I think Body Mind may be mine as well. I’m also looking forward to seeing the new limited edition brushes, the 223 and 169. From what I’ve read, these are the same as the existing 222 and 168 brushes but they have that mixed striped hair to go along with the rest of the packaging for this collection. My 222 brushes needs to be replaced so this is a good excuse!
That’s not even the entire collection, you can catch a glimpse of it here. Thank you Specktra! Also, if you start clearing out your old makeup now, you could have enough for a free lipstick or lipgloss just in time for the new collection. MAC has updated their recycling policy and the Makeup Girl explains it all.
