If all beauty packaging was like the forthcoming MAC Fruity Juicy collection, I would be poor, although the later release of the MAC SteveJ&YoniP collection is pretty impressive, too. As you can see, it’s all about the tropical brights of summer.
I’m immensely glad that I got the Fruit A La La Eye Shadow x 6 – if you think you can’t do a pink or red eye, I promise you, you can and it’s well worth the effort of experimenting (although, buy a single pink or red shadow before you dive into a full palette if you are reluctant). I love this palette – the frosted rose shade (3rd along) is more coppery than pink but teamed the lighter mattes will brighten and waken up your eyes. It’s also surpringly small as a palette which I really like – if all palettes were sized like this my storage problems would be halved.
In the swatch, you can see first the Cremesheen Glass in Cha-Cha-Cha (£18), and at the end you can see Calm Heat in a matte nude (£16.50). I think they must have put an extra dose of fragrance in my lipstick sample – I swear there is more ‘vanilla’ in the products than there used to be: if I was fast asleep and someone wafted this in front of my nose I know I’d wake up shouting MAC! Followed by HELP.. it’s too strong for me. I’ll flag up and link when this collection launches, but my recommendation is a palette (two others to choose from – Love In The Glades in green tones and Oh My Banana in orange tones).
