M·A·C Art of the Eye Collection Available May 2!

Fresh on the heels of collections that had their fans in a frenzy, M·A·C has released information about their next two collections.  Let's take a closer look as I spot a few familiar items...

With the Art of the Eye collection M·A·C invites us to focus on the windows to the soul.  Neutral beige and brown tones and smoky grey and blue serve as the base for the palettes while pops of color appear in the form of single shadows.  To complete the look M·A·C also brings us complimentary kohl liners and mascara.  For those loyal to the brand a lot of the shadows in the collection are familiar; staples such as Carbon, Shroom, and Soft Brown are some of the holy grail shades popular with longtime fans, and currently available on the site.  

The Palette being called - Masat Al Lail - contains 4 shadows that were first released in 2007 with the Smoke Signals collection. 

 So if you missed out on that palette here is your chance to snatch it up.

The Chromagraphic pencils, Feline Kohl liner and Boot Black liquid liner and Reflects Gold and Antique Gold glitter are all currently on the site as they too are part of the the permanent collection.

Parrot eyeshadow is a cult favorite that has appeared a few times so I know people, including myself, will be burning the midnight oil trying to get their hands on this one.  

Here are the specifics on the collection per M·A·C:

M·A·C unveils a luxurious colour collection where eyes are the fascinating focus. From exotic smoky looks to breathtaking, grand celebration statements that dazzle like ornate multicoloured jewels. Two Eye Shadow X 4 palettes in grey/blue and beige/brown blend beautifully in shades including Gentle Fume, Carbon, Shroom, Soft Brown and Najm el Lail. Small Eye Shadow singles add vibrant highlights in Parrot, Gameela, Farasha, Hajar Karim. Lining is legendary – dramatic black Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline sweeps into a wide wing and Liquid Eye Liner’s gel formula creates an elegant edge. Reflects Glitter gilds with golden shimmer. Opulash lavishes lashes with volume and curl.
