Tell someone “you look like a drag queen” and they may take it as a disrespect. Not me! It’s basically the same as saying “Wow, killer makeup!” Granted, not a look I’d want for everyday. But there are times when you want an over-the-top, fierce look.
That pretty much sums up the Dame Edna Collection at MAC. For the most part, this isn’t your run errands/pick up the kids/Sunday Brunch look. It’s your night out on the town look. The collection is mostly cool, so you purple lovers out there will be quite pleased. And the shades are bright, VERY bright. 2 eye palettes with purples, blues and greys. 3 gorgeous lipsticks in ranging degrees of “get your sunglasses” shades (the star of the whole collection for me being Gladiola, a matte mid-tone blue pink. Bright and absolutely beautiful.) And 3 new lip glass shades, all with multidimensional pearl (read: sparkle!) For those who have Limited Edition disorder like me, you’re going to have a hard time passing up the line for the packaging alone-purple with red glitter cat-eye glasses!
This is a fun collection. My shopping mates each bought 2 items. Personally, I’m saving up for the incredible amounts of money I’m going to be spending on two upcoming February releases I was lucky enough to get a peek at: Brunette, Blonde, Redhead (which is set to have a re-release of my all time favorite lipstick from the 2006 Catherine Deneuve collection-Strawberry Blonde) and the…wait for it…Hello Kitty collection.
