Every year MAC brings back shades that are gone but not forgotten. MAC By Request 2014 has some real gems – interestingly, they’re all from the 1990’s but still totally relevant today. These shades have all been voted for by fans of MAC who’ve been campaigning and voting on the MAC Facebook page. The 3 shades from each category with the highest votes are on their way back!
So, first up are the Eye Shadows. Butterscotch (Matte)- CIRCA PRE-1990 (and bang on for the yellow trend because it’s a nod rather than the full banana), Diesel (Frost)- FREEDOM COLOUR ADDITIONS SPRING 1994 (a gorgeous, slate grey which despite being described as a frost is actually quite low on that front) and Fiction (Frost)- COLOUR ABSTRACTION COLOUR ADDITIONS SPRING 1997 (a grey-green shade that again is more of a gentle sheen than a frost).
Things really start popping when it comes to the Lipsticks. These colours are over a decade old and yet they could be any current collections.
The only one that looks truly retro is Pink Poodle which is actually the most recent lipstick making a come-back.
So here we go: Hoop (Matte)- LE GROOVE COLOUR SPRING/SUMMER 1991, Glam (Matte)- VIVA GLAM SPRING/SUMMER 1992 and Pink Poodle (Frost)- VALENTINES’ DAY COLLECTION SPRING 2000.
All the MAC By Request 2014 products are available on-line on 1st April. Is there an old favourite of yours among them? I’ll be showing a special MAC By Request surprise on 31st March so keep your eyes peeled!
