MAC's Suite Array PencilsTuesday, October 14, 2008
MAC's new Suite Array collection has a great selection of eye shadow duos with matching liners. But what you may not have appreciated from the pictures on-line so far is that the liners have a shiny-foil finish to them.
While they aren't your everyday liner, I think they make a really fun addition to your liner collection! They apply smoothly, blend easily and last for a long time.
But, I noticed something when I was trying these pencils out. The shades seemed... familiar. And, they are! Here are the MAC pencils (Bankroll and Fly-by-Blu) swatched next to their Max Factor (yes, Max Factor) counterparts (Green & Bare It and Jean Jacket). The shades are exactly the same, the difference is the foil finish.
You might remember that last December I spent a few hours with Max Factor's Jake Bailey, who taught me how to create a quick and easy smokey eye using eye pencils. Can you imagine using that technique but now with the MAC pencils to accent the look? Amazing!
