This year’s MAC Illustrated Collection looks a lot more appealing to me than last year’s. However, I do wish the bags had a black background as white backgrounds tend to stain more easily. I prefer the fabric of this year’s bags to last year’s which felt rougher. This year’s bags feature exclusive artwork by fashion designer Rebecca Moses.
There are 2 each of the lip, brush, eye and face kits. Let’s take a look at each of them:-
Lip Bag : Nude RM168
Lip Bag : Pink RM168
Smoldering Eye Bag RM268
Sultry Eye Bag RM268
Face Kit : Brown RM268
Face Kit : Plum RM268
190 SE Foundation Brush, 129 SE Powder/Blush Brush, 188 SE Short Duo Fibre Brush, and 195 SE Concealer Brush RM268
168 SE Large Angled Contour Brush, 287 SE Duo Fibre Eye Shadow Brush, 224 SE Tapered Blending Brush, 219 SE Pencil Brush and 266 SE Small Angle Brush RM268
Note that the Face Kits now come with a plastic cover for the lip products which is about time as this is essential to prevent any contamination. My favourite in this collection would have to be the Face Kit : Plum as the eyeshadows swatched easily.
