MAC Cosmetics recently released the Future MAC collection, which invites us to push the future forward beauty moves at the speed of life. The Future MAC collection differs widely from the usual makeup collections we see during this time of year, with sophisticated shades of ‘ice-lit blues’ and supreme ‘atomic sheen’ and ‘hyper-luminous’ finishes to the products.
The first future-forward product I tried was the Mineralize Rich Lipstick in shade Cybernaut, which is described as a neutral pink. There are five shades available, which are collectively inspired by the five elements. Cybernaut is an attractive, nude, cool-toned pink that would suit a variety of skin tones. This lipstick has a light level of coverage which can be built to a medium level of coverage. It sits on the lips without adding any weight and provides the lips with a high level of moisture and hydration. The Lipstick possesses a soft, buttery texture and has an atomic sheen to its finish.
The Mineralize Glass in shade Telegenius complements the Mineralize Rich Lipstick and glimmers as tomorrow’s go-to lip. Telegenius is described as a soft, peachy pink with pearl- pearl, metallic glosses seem to have suddenly become trendy again, and MAC’s Mineralize Glass caters suitably for it. For a lip gloss, the Mineralize Glass has a surprising longevity and does not feel sticky or gloopy when worn. For the ultimate future-forward look, wear the Mineralize Glass on top of the Mineralize Rich Lipstick.
Lastly is the ‘hyper-luminous’ star of the collection, the Mineralize Skinfinish in shade Otherearthly, which is a luxurious face and highlighting powder with 77-Mineral Complex, which has been slow-baked and has a velvety soft texture. The product can be used strategically to highlight (the futuristic silver shade does this exceptionally well) and it can be used as a glowing, sheer, luminous all-over powder. I love the dual-purpose of this product but my favourite aspect is the cool silver, since I prefer cool-toned highlighters over warm-toned ones. I was expecting the Mineralize Skinfinish to stray on the face, due to its slow-baked finish, but it stays reassuring put and precise.
Overall, I feel MAC have excelled with the Future MAC collection – it’s unique, with harmonious ice cool blues, silver and peach hues, and everything performs very well, having a quality which is out of this world.
MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick is priced £21.00 and Mineralize Glass at £20.00 with Mineralize Skinfinish at £24.00.
