MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection for Spring-Summer 2017

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Full Face Kit - Moons of Saturn

 

Hi everyone! I was invited by MAC India a couple of weeks back to attend their Spring-Summer 2017 Trends event. It was an interactive session with MAC India Senior Artist Sonic Sarwate about the hottest beauty trends this season. Its all about individual expression when it comes to trends this year. Makeup is more real than ever before and that doesn’t necessarily mean natural, but real in terms of what is ‘real‘ to you. Wearing a bold flick of kohl may be natural to someone while to someone else, a pop of color on the lips may be what makes them feel their best. Trends are more flexible than they’ve ever been before and its all about your own interpretation of a look. Some of the other trends this season are wet (glossy-looking) makeup with strategically placed highlights, color, which may be in pop or subtle form and monochrome makeup. While I’m not one to follow trends too closely, they do give some fresh ideas and inspiration fpr trying out new looks!

I also received a goodie bag at the event with some pieces from the Makeup Art Cosmetics collection for Spring-Summer 2017. MAC has collaborated with 3 makeup artists to create this HUGE collection! Thanks to MAC India for the generous gift! I’m sharing quick thoughts on the products I was gifted below.

Nykaa Matteilicious Lip Crayons – Swatches

 

Hi everyone! Nykaa has just launched the Matteilicious Lip Crayons – matte lip crayons with a comfortable, long wear formula. They come with their own sharpener and these are priced at Rs 650. The creamy formula has a true matte finish that is somewhat forgiving on the lips but I would still recommend buffing and moisturizing your lips before application. The staying power is excellent and even the lighter colors stay for a good 4-5 hours. There are currently 4 shades in the range, I’ve swatched them below.

What do you think? Any of these shades catch your eye?

Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks : Swatches

 

Hi everyone! Maybelline India has launched the Creamy Matte lipsticks last month. I’ve swatched 11 of the shades in the video below. Hope you find the video helpful! These lipsticks have a creamy texture, excellent color pay off and a soft matte finish. They are quite comfortable to wear, almost a bit hydrating which is rare for a matte lipstick. After doing back to back lip swatches, my lips generally get really dry and parched but with these, my lips felt more plumped and comfortable than when I started doing the swatches. The wear time is really good too, an easy 5+ hours, even with the nude shades.

These are priced at Rs 575 each and have some lovely colors!

I’ve shared some of my favorites below. You can buy these online at Amazon.in.
