Everyone loves when you blush. Go hip in bright red-orange, or add a glorious touch of peach, pink, or lavender – each shade staying as bright and un-beige on the skin as they are in the palette. With a formula that’s seamlessly sheer and unabashedly buildable, what do you get? A look that says Trés Cheek!

Nowness was lovely enough to globally premiere MAC’s Reel Sexy promotional video/short film featuring “iconic model” Kristen McMenamy (I’ve never heard of her before this). The Reel Sexy collection, scheduled for release on April 5, is inspired by surreal cinema, and asks us the question: Is it better to watch or be watched? Hmmmmm. Either way, the makeup in this promo is BRIGHT and certainly not for the wallflowers! I’ll post the full colour story and promo pics soon, but until then, what do you think of the video? I’m not quite sure what to make of it, really lol At best, it’s…. a conversation piece, I suppose.
On a related note, until I post swatches, these are the shades I’m looking forward to the most from Reel Sexy for brown-skinned beauties (source):
Reel Sexy | Light Bright Coral | Amplified
Watch Me Simmer | Bright Pink-orange | Amplified
Heroine | Bright Violet Purple | Matte
Colour Saturation | Dark Cool Wine
Star Quality | Bright Orange Coral
Magenta | Bright Magenta
