MAC - Cool Heat

Cool Heat is in stores today and while some feel that blue eyeshadow should be illegal this collection proves that there is a blue for everyone. Done right, blue can look fresh and summery with the key being to pick the shade that flatters your eye color and skin tone. Also it is much easier to use blue as a smudgy liner rather than committing to the whole lid.

The collection also introduces 5 new Slimshine lipstick colors and anyone who reads this blog regularly knows I love me some Slimshine!

So after visiting my local MAC store here are my picks:

Solar White Eyeshadow - muted white gold
Warming TrendES - light frosted taupe
Climate Blue ES - violet blue
Gulf Stream ES - frosty blue green
Cool Heat ES - frosty teal

By Degrees Slimshine - pinky brown
Tropic Glow Slimshine- blue pink
Swelter Slimshine - sheer clean red

I realize that I have picked most of the collection but truly Cool Heat is lovely to behold.

If you are looking for good layering colors to use with some of the blue shadow as a liner check out Blue Peep Fluidline or Aqualine Liquidlast Liner. Both liners are teal with Blue Peep being a flat teal and Aqualine is a bright shimmery teal. The real advantage to layering is the intensity of color and the staying power. Blue can be a bit finicky so a good base makes a real difference.

Don't wait too long on this collection if the blues have your heart racing like mine.....the MAC store was packed today and everyone was clamoring over Cool Heat.
