At the MAC Masterclass I attended yesterday, Gregory Arlt introduced a MAC Pro Nourishing essential oil blend, a new Pro-only product that will launch in 2010. The bottle was labelled ‘Pro Nourishing Oil Enriched (Grapefruit Lime & Chamomile)’. I’m not sure if this is the designated name or merely the working one.
Although the details are hazy on this product, there is nothing confusing about the scent. Sweet and gentle with a bit of citrus lift, this Vitamin E-based essential oil is as pleasant to smell as it is to touch – it doesn’t have excessive slip; instead, the product absorbs readily into the skin.
A fellow makeup artist at the class remarked that it reminded him of MAC Cleanse Off Oil. I agree that the latter has hints of the Pro Nourishing scent but this new product isn’t as oily.
When Gregory whipped it out during his HDTV makeup presentation, he explained in glee that it is great for a softer finish in foundation work. Simply mix a drop or two into foundation to make it more velvety. A neat pro trick, no? :)
