As you head to the mall or your computer today to make returns and spend gift cards, keep in mind that New Year’s Eve is just four days away. And no threat of snow is going to keep you cooped up that night (unless you’ve already planned to be), so you’ll want to look your best. MAC recently released three new collections, perfect for those of us really looking to kick-off the new year with a bang. The first, appropriately titled “Cham Pale,” is the most reserved of the three, but the stunning neutrals will leave you perfectly frosted and glowing for the big night—the line includes four lip glosses, two shimmering pressed powders, and four paint pots that go on creamy, but dry to leave you with perfect, all-day eye color.
If you’re looking for something a bit more bold on the last night of 2010, check out the “Stylishly Yours” collection, featuring intense hues we’ve been seeing on the runways as of late: the perfect bombshell-red lipstick, shimmering pigments for eyes or cheeks such as “Electric Coral” and “Vivid Violet,” and cream color bases in bright pink poppy and “Madly Magenta.” And to top it off, don’t miss MAC’s newly released mascara—with a name like “False Lashes,” you can bet it’s the kind of high-drama wand you’ve been searching for all this time. Promising the “illusion of extensions,” the mascara uses a mega-multiplication formula designed to add extra volume and overall oomph for your big night. Head to your favorite MAC counter now to check out these special collections, and good luck on Friday night. With that face, you’re going to be unstoppable.
