I was invited by my gorge friend @lovefromtey down to Carnaby street's MAC Pro store. For Dominic Skinner's pre-sale event, and live demo for the new MAC Strobe Cream Extensions, and the In Extra Dimension highlighter powders. Those that know me, know that I love to glow!
These iridescent highlighters will quite literally transport you to another dimension!
We were greeted by body builder Daniel Ventura Martin, who was topless might I just add. But I mean who needs clothes, when you've been strategically smeared in enough highlighter that the glow alone will keep you warm!
We received a warm welcome and a cold bottle of champs!
A perfect evening already!
I was able to play, swatch and use the new strobe creams and highlight powders to my hearts content.
Shortly after we were ushered into the other room for Senior MAC artist Dominic Skinner's live demo.
Where stunning model Latesha Wilson, was to be the muse for the magical demo that was about to take place.
We learned that these powders and creams can be used for; Strobing, Highlighting, Eyeshadow, Body Shimmer, and even as a Metallic Lipstick.
I can't express enough how much pictures just don't do these products any justice.
The formula is genius, it's finely milled so it glides onto your skin with ease.
Top tips that Dom shared with us was that using MAC fix plus and MAC's essential oil would intensify the glow, as if that wasn't enough, but i believe you can never have too much highlight!
I walked away with 'Double gleam', (which is best described as beige that breaks silver) but I wanted all four.
The powder highlights are creamy to touch almost velvety, and said to last for up to 10hrs worth of wear.
I even fell in love with the strobe creams, and I'm not usually a strobe cream kinda gal!
But they're a great quick fix, to brighten even the most dullest of skin, with potent botanicals, and nutritious vitamins and a dose of green tea, known for its clarifying properties, all of these ingredients combined help to smooth skin, improve clarity, re-hydrate, it works well alone or on top or underneath foundation. A great little boost for a dull day!
The extra dimension skin finish highlights come in four lust worthy shades ; Double Gleam, Beaming Blush, Soft Frost and Show Gold. Which are priced at £24.
And the strobe creams come in four pretty pigmented shades ; Pinklite, Silverlite, Redlite, Goldlite and Peachlite. Which are priced at £24.50.
I am so thankful that all colours in both lines are permanent. These came out on 27th October 2016 and are availabe instore and online at MAC Cosmetics http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/collections-in-the-spotlight
If your a highlighter junkie like me, then these are an absolute must have for your collection!
These will be a firm favourite of mine for a while... I mean who wouldn't want to be able to take themselves from natural to ethereal at the swish of a well poised make-up brush?!
