MAC Smoke Signals Collection
(A better late than never review)
"The whole feeling of Smoke Signals is really about the seductive nature of makeup. This collection brings to mind the feeling of sitting in club, listening to great music, with smoke all around you and the intrique and glamour that it evokes". There is definitely a smoky eye going on that is classic, paired with a wonderful kind of fleshy mouth." (James Gager, Senior Vice President Creative Director)
Ablaze: This is more matte-like than a frost. It is described as a "dirty coral" but it a bright rose. It is highly pigmented and gives a lovely flush to the cheek.
Emote: A matte grey brown that is cool toned. This is a taupe that does not turn orange or dirty. It goes on sheer but is buildable.
