With all the attention being focused on Brazil and the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup™, it’s a good opportunity to shine a light on the world of Brazilian fashion designers.  Pedro Lourenço grew up in São Paulo and continues to enchant the fashion world with his couture-like sensibility and meticulous attention to detail.  The new M·A·C Pedro Lourenço Collection spotlights daring, saturated hues juxtaposed against soft, frosted nudes, all encased in limited-edition, black packaging with a chic, velvet finish. It’s gorgeous!

Let me start with this: of all the M·A·C collections I’ve reviewed this year, and there have have been quite a few, I think the Pedro Lourenço Collection is absolutely the most beautiful one of all. The shades are primarily nude, with metallics and pops of clear red. Stunning!

MAC Pedro Lorenco NUDE Quad eyeshadow

I love a beautiful nude palette and this one totally satisfies! The Nude Quad has two matte eyeshadows (Pink Sands and Rosé Cloud) plus two textured shades, All That Glitters and Sable. I found all eyeshadows to have good pigmentation. I recommend using a primer (especially with lighter shades) and with the textured shadows, I find the M·A·C 239 brush to work best. These colors are really gorgeous.

MAC-Pedro-Lourenco-Powder-Blush-Duo-Corol

Equally beautiful is the Powder Blush Duo in Corol, with two shades in a matte light coral pink and soft neutral plum velvet texture. This Duo is so pretty. It will work for a variety of skin tones. Love!

MAC Pedro Lourenco Lipsticks and Golden Mirror Lipglass

The other products I tried included the Lipstick in Peach Beige, which was too light for my coloring on it’s own. However with the Golden Mirror Lipglass over it, it works. I also tested True Red Lipstick, which is too bold of a look for me. I was surprised at the amount of red in this collection, so quickly on the heels of the Maleficent Collection (review), which was very red-based.

The M·A·C Pedro Lourenço Collection is available now at select locations through early July. If you’ve been waiting for M·A·C to give you a collection of neutrals to play with, this is the one to get!
