Where There’s Smoke…

MAC Cosmetics' Smoke Signals Collection There’s fire and with good reason. This collection is called Smoke Signals and it just blew me away. Out of the two collections, this one had me at hello. If you are a fan of the smokey eye look, this collection is for you and you should not miss it. There are some repromoted products in this collection but there are also some new shades like Smoke Signals pigment that deserve a look. Here’s what’s included (shades listed as pictured):

  • Lipglass (top to bottom) in Bare Truth, Soft & Slow, Illicit and Bizaarish

I was going to play with these colors and show you my own smokey eye but my left eye is a little under the weather, I’ll spare you the details, so I’ll have to do this another time. What I would have done though would have been taking Dark Soul pigment and placing it all over the lid, bringing it up into the crease… perhaps with a touch of Silver Fog on top. Then taking Engraved Power Point eyeliner on the bottom and upper waterlines. A little blush, a little Brew on the lips and it would look hot.
