MAC Pro Event

MAC – NEW Alluring Aquatic Collection

International Launch Date – June 2014 at MAC Locations

I went into MAC this week to get my hands on some of the NEW Aqua MAC Collection and to my disappointment it’s still not here in NZ!!!

The limited edition Alluring Aquatic Collection hits stores next month and has all us makeup lovers in anticipation! I have had a good look online and the collection has a great range of eye shadows, eye/lip liners, lipsticks, bronzer, brushes and nail varnish.

The shades are not what I expected but definitely universal colours that will work on all skin tones.
