Fifty shades of fantastic: MAC unloads novel new look

Hey, you pretty little bookworm. MAC has a new collection available online starting August 14th and it takes after Harlequin romance novels, otherwise know as the original Fifty Shades of Grey. The concept is a little crazy, but we’re digging the sexy shades in their newest collection, A Novel Romance.

  • Rising Passions (charcoal with in hint of green and gold)
  • Fall in Lust (cool grayish mauve)
  • My Fantasy (faded olive)
  • Dance in the Dark (dark brown)

  • Brawn (plum)
  • Sable (pearly, golden plum)
  • Black Tied (black with silver tones)

The line also includes a pool of individual covers from their Electric Cool Eye Shadow product line and a host of new Fluidline Eye Pencils. Our favorite shadow options: Superwatt (shimmery taupe), Gilded Thrill (Gold), Love Power (shimmering pale rose) and Switch to Blue (colbalt). ($21) Of the Liquidline Eye pencils, we love Metropolis (led), Atomic Ore (gold) and Water Willow (Olive). ($16)

There are two new, limited edition, powder blush options in Fun Ending (soft peach) and Animal Instincts (frosted plum). ($22) They’re perfect for going flushed or looking fierce.
