Something that has astounded me lately is the MAC releases. We seem to launch them here in South Africa before they launch everywhere else. Isn’t that strange? For instance, the MAC Cosmetics Min Liu Collection is set to launch in the US on April 14th yet it became available on maccosmetics.co.za earlier this week. I’m not complaining because I do also find it awesome. It happened with the MAC Mariah Carey collection I reviewed here as well. Oh and I have a giveaway running where you could win an item from that collection so don’t forget to check it out.
Min Liu, or Ms Min as she is professionally known is a Chinese designer and is known for her contemporary takes on traditional Chinese motifs and themes. The inspiration runs throughout the items in the collection as you will see.
Ms. Min Lipstick – R290
Ms. Min Lipglass – R270
Ms. Min Eyeshadow Duo – R520
Ms. Min Fluidline – R260
Ms. Min Cream Colour Base – R300
Ms. Min Pearlmatte Face Powder – R530
Ms. Min Brush Roll – R1200
Ms. Min Makeup Bag – R1000
After seeing sneak peeks of the MAC Cosmetics Min Liu Collection on Instagram, I had my eye on the Pearlmatte Face Powder. I already own this one which I absolutely love, but when I saw the price in this collection, I was floored. This is by far the most expensive collection I’ve seen by MAC and I’m sure it has to do with the tassles on all the products. I was tempted to just get it for the packaging and then I saw these swatches by chicprofile and I was put off.
All items are currently available on the maccosmetics.co.za website and will be available everywhere else on the 14th April.
I’ve decided not to get anything from this collection but do still think it’s hella pretty. Will you be picking anything up from the MAC Cosmetics Min Liu Collection?
