Sneak Peek: MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics Fall As Seen By Maria Kalman Review and Swatches


Maria Kalman obviously thinks of Fall as being a vibrant time of the year. Although a Fall Collection no one can say that Maria Kalman hasn't created some bold, bright, beautiful shades for her MAC Collection this upcoming September.

As part of the MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics Collection the Maria Kalman for MAC Collection is made up of six shades of shadow and five shades of MAC Technakohl. Unconventional for Fall? For sure. Beautiful? No doubt.

Check it after the jump!

I have a very small stash of goodies from this collection that I've swatched for you and will give you a very brief babble about. This collection cries the Muse's name as it's filled with beautiful, fun shades. It's not typically Fall but it'll be nice to stash away for when Spring arrives next year!

I have two of the six shadows to show you and I'll be quite excited to see the rest upon their release. The shades I have are Crest the Wave and Maria's Mood. Crest the Wave is a rich buttery yellow with a frost finish and Maria's Mood is a blue pink with a satin finish. Out of the two Crest the Wave has the best pigmentation but I'm not fond of the frost finish, regardless the shade is truly lovely. Maria's Mood is a vast disappointment as it has a very sheer color payoff plus it's a good deal chalky and almost matte in finish.
















The MAC Technakohl is even more exciting than the shadows as they are so fun and funky with greens, oranges, and teals as the dominate colors. The two I have are Full of Fuchsia and Artistic License. Both shades are very fun and a rare treat for kohl colors!










Maria Kalman is famous for her whimsical visual dairies. Her shades for MAC are cheeky, witty, amusing, and playful.

Her collection will be available in September from MAC with the other three in the MAC Make-Up Art series.

What do you think of fun shades for Fall?

Loving this?

Haulin'?

Those eyeliners are gorgeous!
How well do those wear?
Do they stay around like the UD 24/7 or do they smudge off fast?
