MAC has introduced the Taste Tempation Collection; dramatic makeup shades that set the stage for a dark late-night show. This collection is made up of smokey shades of purples, pinks and moody blues. One of my favorite MAC collections of the year. Read on for more…

It’s hard for me not to gush over the MAC Taste Temptation Collection; these are the colors I live for. I previewed a variety of products in the collection. My favorites include:

The Eyeshadow X4: I love when MAC puts together the 4 shadow compacts; they’re always a must-have for me. The four colors/four textures include Look at the Eyes – light violet (frost), Naval – navy blue (veluxe pearl), Stay Sultry – deep navy (satin) and probably my favorite MAC shade of all time, Carbon – intense black (matte). The shadows apply well and in my opinion, show good pigmentation.  $47.50.

Powder Blush in Unconventional – pale shimmering lavender (frost) and Passionately Tempted – mid-tone magenta (satin). Both shades of blush held the color well; I particularly like Unconventional, $20.

Mattene Lipsticks – there are three shades: Nocturnal Instincts – mid-tone greyed lavender,  Night Blooming – mid-toned blue pink and Seductive Intent – vivid purple, $15. I also tried the Lipglass in Perky, a mid-tone shimmering lilac and it’s a keeper! Highly recommend picking up this shade–it will take you right into spring, $15.


Nail Lacquer – I tried both shades: For Fun – a rich, clean purple and Blue Gaze – a dark periwinkle. If you’re looking for a nail shade that’s similar to Tom Ford Orchid, pick up For Fun. Of the two nail lacquers in this collection, it surprised even me that Blue Gaze is my favorite. The mani I did was Blue Gaze with an accent nail of Grey Friday on the ring finger. I think what I’ll do for the holidays is a reverse moon Blue Gaze/silver combination. I’m getting great wear with MAC Nail Lacquers and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

The MAC Taste Temptation Collection is available now through mid-January, but this is such a gorgeous collection, I wouldn’t wait. Do you see anything that you plan to pick up? Let me know in the comments!
