We're on our second month of the year and while the Christmas decorations are down and the holiday tunes are on pause, we imagine there's going to be a flurry of red, gold, and all things related to the Chinese New Year. Restaurants have rolled out their special Lunar New Year menus, fashion houses are pushing their scarlet-hued limited collection, and as for the beauty brands, there's the drop of propitious picks of makeup and skin-care products featuring peonies, lanterns, and dragon prints.
One brand who knows how to celebrate the new year right? MAC Cosmetics—and they're slaying the Lunar New Year with a makeup line that's bold, bright, and as expected, a guaranteed must-have!
MAC Senior Manager of Makeup Artistry - Asia Pacific Regan Rabanal explained, "This collection is everything you need to get ready to give good face and give way to the Lunar New Year." He continued, "The collectible, fish-embossed highlighter is a standout in the uber-popular shade, Double-Gleam, to keep you glowing from day to night."
Called the Moon Masterpiece collection, the fan-favorite MAC formulas are packed in bright new vessels. The range features Powder Kiss Lipstick and VersiColour Varnish Cream Lip Stain available in a variety of hues, Powder Blush Duo, Extra Dimension SkinFinish, and a nine-pan Eyeshadow Palette dubbed Sea of Plenty.
The shade choices begin with deep red, a color that signifies prosperity and good fortune in Asia. You’ll find variations on the theme to suit every taste and style: a smoky brown-red called Luck Be A Lady, a vibrant orange-coral in Playing Koi, and a true red in Healthy, Wealthy, and Thriving.
While this is originally created for the Asian market, MAC Cosmetics' Lunar New Year collections throughout the years have become widely popular around the world.
Makeup enthusiasts and beauty junkies from all cultures around the world are loving the bright packaging and unique shades.
It has become apparent that the Lunar New Year is a very significant season to release these joyful collections, and MAC Cosmetics has always delivered.
