I have to admit it – I am a complete sucker for MAC’s splashy collaborations with celebs and influencers. I love every single thing about them – the snazzy packaging, the bold colors, the collaborators themselves! I bought (twice, actually) Iris Apfel’s entire collection in 2011. I still use Rihanna’s RiRi Woo lipstick and blush/bronzer duo. And don’t get me started on how I live for Carine Roitfeld’s vampy, smudgy eye palette. So when MAC announced a new collection with Caitlyn Jenner, I knew I had to give it a whirl.
Her 15-piece set includes products for lips, eyes and cheeks. I’m super into the plum eyeshadow, Worthy, which I use as eyeliner because I think black for everyday can look harsh. I apply it with my Nars angled eyeliner brush (it’s the best I’ve found) so that the line is thin and looks natural. I’ve also been using the Teddy kohl eyeliner in bronze for the weekends, which I draw on my upper eyelid and then smudge lightly with my pinky. I love a smudgy look for winter.
Compassion, the bronzer, is densely pigmented, so be sure to use a light hand and build color. The lip glosses are natural pinks that are complimentary to most skin tones, but I’m not really one for sticky lips.
The simple, clean packaging also speaks straight to Caitlyn Jenner, her personality and the type of woman she aspires to be – classy, sophisticated and serious.
