mac_reel_sexy_collection.jpgWe told you about the MAC Reel Sexy collection before, when we showed you the video they'd made with Nowness to show it off, starring Kristen McMenamy.

From the video we saw, we (quite easily) deduced that as Kristen was wearing orange eyeshadow and neon pink blusher, the collection would probably be full of bright, vivid colours, and we were right. Reel Sexy is actually quite a big collection, including four lipsticks, four Cremesheen Glass lipglosses, four Eyeshadow Duos, four Eye Kohls, a Mineralize Skinfinish, a Blush and and three Nail Lacquers: but out of the many, many pieces I'm actually only really excited by a few.


The Nail Lacquers in Screening Room, a bright mid-tone teal and In the Dark...Purple, a vivid violet are going straight on my wishlist, although they seem at lot more autumn/winter to me than they do spring/summer.


The eye khols are the other thing I want: Smolder is just a basic black eyeliner, and Heirloom Highly is nice, a metallicized greyed lavender, although it's not a new shade. But it's Resort Deep, a beautiful amethyst plum colour, and Hyacinth, a mid-tone blue that I really love.

Most products in this collection are limited edition (apart from the Smoulder and Hyacinth kohls) and will drop in the UK in May. You can check out the rest of the products on the brilliant Temptalia.
