MAC Styledriven Collection for Fall 2011 launched at TANGS Orchard yesterday in conjunction with The TANGS Sale where members are entitled to a 12% rebate. I believe that this collection was launched a week ago at MAC Bugis – MAC’s newest store and is available island wide now.
This collection features mainly Pro Longwear items ranging from Lipcreme, Lipglass, Eyeshadow, Lip Pencil, Foundation and Concealer. All items are permanent – have been a while since MAC released such a huge amount of permanent products, ey?
The Pro Longwear Eyeshadows are a little disappointing in my opinion. They are not as smooth and pigmented as I would have imagined. Sunny Outlook, Thru the Night and Plush looks great in the pan but swatches rather sheer – and so, I didn’t get any eyeshadows from this collection. Many of the Pro Longwear Lipcreams have not arrived, TANGS only had 4 on display which I didn’t swatch.
Personally, I think the main focus of this collection might be on the Pro Longwear Lipglasses – they are stunning. Excellent colour payoff, smooth consistency and it comes with a sponge applicator very similar to those of Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss (swatched here). I picked up Driven By Love – red-blue with slight pearlized pigments and Full Speed Ahead – bright pink-magenta. Colour descriptions extracted from Temptalia – more information and photos on Temptalia here.
Each Pro Longwear Lipglass contains 1.92g, made in Canada and retails at S$35.
I love how these glosses shine, they look so juicy and yummy. They are very vibrant and pigmented too. However, I have not tried wearing them throughout the day yet, I have no idea how long they last – shall update accordingly. Did you pick up anything from this collection?
Thank you for reading.
