MAC have paid a faithful tribute to fashion illustrator, Antonio Lopez, with their collection of beauty palettes featuring his drawings. Lopez died in the mid eighties, but his influence lives on.

One iridescent, bronz-y powder and one pink blush sit on top of “beauty powder” housed in a drawer underneath. Pretty as it is, I imagine most people have these shades covered in their stash already and the generic beauty powder – I’m not sure what I’d do with it. It’s £30 with a coral toned variant.

This is the MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes Violet palette (there are 3 variants of this palette) which I think co-ordinates so beautifully with the Antonio Lopez illustration on the lid and the packaging.

I have to say though that the colours didn’t come out quite as vibrant and bold on the skin as I was expecting and I’m not sure I’d want to part with £35 for it.

Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Nude

This is the Nude version of the Antonio Lopez 3 Lips Palette (£25). The lip palettes are the strongest part of the range I think, so if you are tempted by the illustrated collection, I’d head to lips first.

They’re gorgeously pigmented, strong shades, even within the nude spectrum – the third colour is a frosted neutral that would sit happily over each of the other two colours.
