The newest collection from MAC Cosmetics is inspired by dogs – that’s a sentence that I never thought I would write! Here is what they said about the new limited edition Haute Dogs collection:
“(Wo)man’s best friend is barking up the right tree in a well-groomed collection of new canine-inspired hues from M·A·C, featuring luscious, buttery fur tones, gold-spun sculpting powders, and regal berries for lips.”
I am actually scared of dogs, and was seriously phobic of them as a child, but you know what? I can get on board with this collection because I love MAC, and I love these colours! MAC have sent me two products for review – the Lap Dog Mineralise Lipglass, and Pure Bred Mineralise Eyeshadow quad.
I was the most excited about the Mineralise Eyeshadow Quad, I have a few MAC eyeshadows but have never tried the Mineralise varieties until now. This is the Pure Bred quad, and the shadows are Plum, Silver cream, Tan gold & Deep brown. The MAC Haute Dogs Mineralise Eyeshadow Quads have an RRP of $115 in New Zealand, and there are three different quads available.
I really like this sturdy quad, and the mirror inside it. I’m also glad that they didn’t bother including sponge applicators or anything – it’s just a waste of space and with products this nice you should really be using good brushes. The shades all work well with each other, which means it’ll be quite versatile.
Capturing the Silver cream shade in a swatch was a bit difficult but it’s a lovely shade.
The Mineralize Glass in Lap Dog is the second item from this collection that I was sent. It’s a pale light pink-nude which reminds me a bit of Oxblood from the Toledo collection earlier this year. MAC lipglasses are much less tacky than conventional lipglosses which I never wear, but I do reach for my MAC lip glasses regularly. There are four different lipglasses in the MAC Haute Dogs collection and they have an RRP of $58 in New Zealand.
Here I am wearing the Pure Bred eyeshadows, as well as the Lap Dog lipglass over the Whirl lipliner that I bought last weekend.
I am pleased to report that the Mineralize eyeshadows apply very nicely, and blended together well. Plum is not an eyeshadow colour that I would ordinarily wear, but now I think it’ll be something I wear regularly now.
The MAC Haute Dogs collection includes products for your eyes, face, lips, and even your nails! This limited edition collection is available from September 7, 2015 at all authorized M.A.C Locations in New Zealand. For international readers visit MACcosmetics.com for stockist information and online stores in selected countries. By the way, if, like me you were wondering how to pronounce haute – it’s like ‘oat’ not ‘hot’.
