M·A·C x Pedro Lourenço Collection

M·A·C has been on a roll lately. At least over here. This June means the release of three collections. Three collections in one month! Phew! How is one to keep up? I’ll have to admit, I kind of wish there was more time between each collection just because it’s nice to be excited and anticipate the next one for a while, and so that it’s not too overwhelming to have one collection right after another, you know? Besides, don’t we need time to save up money in between? I know I do! Haha.

The most recent collection, launched on June 1, was a collaboration with Brazilian fashion designer Pedro Lourenço and features ‘daring, saturated hues are juxtaposed against soft, frosted nudes, all encased in limited-edition, black packaging with a chic, velvet finish.‘ And according to James Gager, creative director of M·A·C Cosmetics, “Pedro organically understands and relates to the MAC Cosmetics DNA and beautifully interprets the Brazilian woman’s polished yet effortless style through this collaboration.

As someone who loves nude shades to the point of obsession, I was already intrigued at the first description alone. Then I saw a a teaser of the collection (I blame Instagram a lot for fueling my makeup lust) and I already knew my greedy little hands needed a thing or two from it. Want to see the collection for yourself in full? Then read on…

I already got my hands on a couple of things from this collection and I can’t wait to do a review on them. I’m planning to maybe get something else, like the Roxo lipstick, but we’ll see!

What about you? Do you like the new collection? What are your favorites or which ones do you want to try or buy the most? Are you excited for any of the other upcoming collections? Let me know in the comments!

  1. This looks like another amazing collection from MAC and I cant wait to get my hands on the Ruby and Roxo lippies. Am truly in awe at just how beautifully pigmented and lasting their lipsticks are, so these two are going straight on to my wish list.

  2. Oh wow! I’ve been eying on Mac since last month, and I’m going to try purchasing using my-shoppingbox account. And thanks for this post, it enlightens me to purchase the basic ones! Haha!

    • I didn’t get the eyeshadow quad because as far as I know, all or most of the shades are already part of the MAC permanent collection. But if they weren’t I would definitely have gotten it because they’re the types of colors I wear the most!

  3. These are beautiful! Im loving the nude look of it…and the skin nail polish is just too gorgeous! NEED IT!



    • Nude shades are my favorite! They’re perfect for any time of the day and any occasion, and they’re the easiest to work with it too.

    • It is pretty hard to catch up with them these days! I feel like MAC and Etude House are competing to see who can release more collections the fastest, haha.
