MAC Cosmetics

New from MAC is the colourful Flighty collection. According to MAC Singapore, it will be available in May 2011. Comprising only three specific products, this collection may be small in selection but it delivers on range, where colour is concerned. The colours look saturated in the promo visual but I’m not sure, going by the ‘sheer to medium’ description.

It’s interesting how MAC has jumped on the mousse shadow bandwagon only now – the Japanese brands led the way with them and we’ve seen them from Estée Lauder (Pure Colour Cool Eye Shadow Mousse), Stila (Shadow Pot Eye Mousse) and even Maybelline (Dream Mousse Eye Shadow). Given that MAC is under the EL umbrella, I’m guessing the MAC Big Bounce Shadows will be close to the EL and Stila versions. (Same labs, similar formula; much like the MAC and Bobbi Brown BB creams?)

Light and airy, mousse shadows seem to have an insubstantial nature that I wouldn’t associate with MAC (how apt is the name ‘flighty’?). Then again, MAC uncharacteristically came up with a Cheek Jelly many years back, so I guess the brand does go off on a tangent at times. ;)
