M·A·C celebrates one of the most influential photographers of our time with the introduction of the Helmut Newton Collection. This capsule collection is defined by sultry shades of red and wine, along with a signature smoky eye. Gorgeous!
The M·A·C Helmut Newton Collection includes:
Helmut Newton Eyeshadow X4 in Point ‘N’ Shoot ($32) Shades include Real Fantasy (eggshell matte), Hard Currency (grey matte), Influential (brown matte), Point ‘N’ Shoot (black matte).
Helmut Newton Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21) in Chateau (deep red wine), Self Portrait (dark plum) and High Heels (red).
Helmut Newton Studio Nail Lacquer ($13) in Berlin (purple creme, Call Time (grey creme) and Monte Carlo (red creme).
I had the opportunity to preview the Eyeshadow X4 in Point ‘N’ Shoot and Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Self Portrait. I love this eyeshadow quad; the colors are beautiful neutrals with nice pigmentation, easy application and consistency. The Point ‘N’ Shoot black matte eyeshadow shares a cool undertone like Carbon, but I found this one to apply smoothly and evenly.
I’m also a fan of the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour formula, and the color payoff with the shade I tried, Self Portrait, is stunning. This dark plum shade is perfect for fall and winter. If you’re a fan of reds, the other shades are worth considering.
The Limited Edition M·A·C Helmut Newton Collection is available now in select locations, including Nordstrom and on maccosmetics.com (where, for a limited time you can get free second day shipping with code MACEXP, see website for details). Look for the eye-catching packaging, which features several iconic Helmut Newton photographs.
