The M.A.C Smoke Signal Collection is truly gorgeous. With beautiful smokey browns and grays, along with neutral lip colors and muted blush shades, It reminds me of classic and classy fall style. I am a neutral makeup type of girl, so this collection fit me perfectly.
The eyeshadow comes in two quads, one leans more to gray/brown and the other more to blue/gray. Both are beautiful. I have taken to wearing the light pink/taupe from the smoking eyes quad (pictured) with just a brown eyeliner (also from the smoke signals collection) and hint of the taupe in the crease. The look works wonderfully for day, and it is easy to move it to evening by adding a bit more color to the lid and adding a bit of the darker brown along the lashes and blending. The collection also adds some more very nice pigments to M.A.C’s list.
The lip products are also outstanding. The lipsticks are all beautiful neutral shades, ranging from quite light to a deep, rich wine. They are complimented by some equally nice lip glass shades. Add one of the muted and unique shades of blush that seem perfect for fall, and you are ready to go!
The line also includes nail polish. If you wanted to try black last year, you will have your chance again in fall 2007. It appears to be back and in style as much as ever. M.A.C’s black shade is quite nice. There is also a deep purple shade with red pearl that looks quite interesting. It isn’t the type of color I tend to go for, but I tried some on my toes and kind of liked it!
As with many of M.A.C’s collections, this is limited edition, so I suggest grabbing some of these really nice shades while you can, especially the eyeshadow quads.
