Yesterday we took a look at MAC’s “warm” post-holiday collection, Warm & Cozy; today: Love Lace. Both of these collections release on December 26.
Love Lace offers four eyeshadows ($14.50): Pincurl (a repromote from Blonde, Brunette, Redhead), Hypnotizing, Love Lace, and Suave Intentions.
Despite being a Frost, Pincurl is a matte ash or smoke with a tinge of purple. Hypnotizing (Frost) is a greyed violet. Love Lace (Veluxe Pearl) is a marine blue, not quite navy; Suave Intentions (Veluxe Pearl) is a bright, lagoon blue.
There are also four Love Lace kohls (all $14.50). Fascinating (matte white) is a regular Eye Kohl — it’s also part of the permanent line. Sense of Style (blackened blue), Raven (blackened burgundy), and Feline (really black) are Kohl Power pencils, and are limited edition. We’ve seen Raven and Feline before; Sense of Style is a new shade.
I feel totally vindicated, because at last year’s post-holiday collection, Chill, I inadvertently swatched Viva Glam VI SE lipgloss instead of Icescape. My counter had either sold out of Icescape or never received a tester, and they placed VGVI SE in the display, rather than leave a gap. This year, Icescape has been repromoted, so I got a second chance.
The second Lipglass is newcomer Utterly Discrete (Utterly Discreet?), a sheer brown or brown-purple gloss with purple sparkles.
Pretty Please lipstick (Lustre) is a repromote from the permanent line; Intricate (Frost) is new — both are quite sheer. MAC’s lipsticks and glosses are $14 each.
There’s also a new, limited edition nail polish ($12): Light Affair. It’s a light, light, sliiiiiightly purple grey creme.
