MAC Philip Treacy Collection

MAC's Philip Treacy collection features just 3 key groups of products. 

A blush colored high-light powder, 3 deep, rich lipsticks and ultra bright cream eye colors. 

But I know everyone goes ga-ga over the blush-pink High-light Powder (SGD$53) first. I did as well.

This is an ultra-fine matte highlight powder in a soft lingerie pink. The texture is not pearlescent or noticeably sparkly, so you get a velvety glow with tiny specks of silver. The metallic over-spray on the top goes away after the first use.

But I'll say my favorite products in the collection are the 3 lipsticks ($30)!

Most of the collections so far in 2015 (with the exception of the Red, Red, Red and Cinderella) have included fantastically intense lipsticks, and this collection is no different.

The pigmentation of these lipsticks are dense, rich, and the textures are ultra smooth. 

  • Cardinal - warm burgundy red (satin)
  • Hollywood Cerise - magenta berry (satin)
  • No Faux Pas - deep fuchsia (matte)

These are all flattering rich shades that will brighten your face and teeth, and look great on most skin tones.

I didn't swatch the Fluidline gel liners ($30) because they're standard MAC colors (black, cobalt, and teal).

The 2 Pro Longwear Paint Pots ($36) are new, and available in the following shades:
  • Genuine Treasure - bronze with gold glitter
  • Chrome Angel - silvery pearl white

I personally prefer Chrome Angel simply because of the texture and performance, even though I'd been more excited about Genuine Treasure in the beginning. It's just not the sort of texture that will apply evenly without a lot of effort, and it also doesn't work that well as a base under other shades because of the sparkles. I never understood the glittery Paint Pots because they've typically never looked good. In this case I think Maybelline Bad To The Bronze would be similar but better (and cheaper) actually.

But ultimately the 2 Paint Pots would not be where I'd suggest you put your money in the collection. Check out the other products!

Aside from the makeup, there is also a split-sided 127 face brush ($62) and a set of Extreme Black false lashes ($37) which will be available with this collection, but which are not pictured here.

This is quite a small capsule collection compared to some of the other ones that have launched this year, but well worth a look.

The Philip Treacy collection launches 1 April at Tangs, Sephora ION, Robinsons Heeren, and Ngee Ann City counters.
