MAC Too Fabulous launched in early March. This is one, limited edition collection that I wanted to share with you because the colors are unique, and beautiful. The collection includes six, sexy, swirled shades of Mineralize Blush Duos ($23.00), 9 different Cremesheen Glasses ($18.00) for lips, complimented by 6 Lip Pencils ($13.00).
Here’s what the M.A.C. press literature says about Too Fabulous: “Lips and cheeks get the pretty young thing treatment…Cremesheen Glass makes a comeback for Spring 2010. Introducing six new très jolie shades and three bring-back essentials, because the world wants more of this creamy, high-flying gloss formula that provides sheer, Just Superb colour with a touch of sex-o-shine! To accentuate them, a combination of six Lip Pencils ranging from neutral to pinks and browns, to delight and define. And here’s a lovely thought: six new Mineralize Blush Duos are also making a limited appearance. Inspired by the original, they provide a gossamer sheer and lightweight application…all Too Fabulous”
Here’s what the I think about Too Fabulous: I think it’s fabulous, too. I looked at the MAC Mineralize Blush Duos, and fell in love. I emailed M.A.C. and said I had to review them! These Mineralize Blush Duos come in large, round compacts with clear plastic dome tops that let you see the beauty of the two, swirled colors that look like abstract art, They are deep and can be intense and they do add lots of color and shimmer. But you can use a fan brush and dust on just a little bit, and still look glamorous and dramatic without being over the top. Of course, if high fashion is the look you want, these Mineralize blushes help you achieve it, easily!
