M.A.C’s Petal Power Collection Is Why the Color Pink Was Invented: EXCLUSIVE

Although pink makeup is nothing new, this past award season we’ve seen the rosy trend blow. up. Pink eyes—not the infection—were seen on a dozen gorgeous celebrities walking the red carpet with flushed cheeks and pink lips. M.A.C.’s Petal Power Collection is basically perfect for the trend. It’s got all the rose hues we’re craving in the formulas you know and love from M.A.C. Plus, the 10-piece line is wrapped in pretty limited-edition floral packaging. It’s all inspired by spring’s cherry blossom blooms.

“This collection offers a way to find a shade of pink that works for your skin tone and personality, while also delighting with special Deco packaging,” said Romero Jennings, Director of Makeup Artistry, M.A.C. Cosmetics, in a statement. The brand promises those of all different skin tones will love the way the pink hues pop. There’s something for everyone with three lipstick shades, Plenty of Pout Plumping Lip Gloss (a returning fan-favorite formula!) in three hues, Prep + Prime Lip, Mineralize Skinfinish, a new Fix+ with a cherry blossom scent and a pink-tipped powder brush.

With my fair skin, I loved the way the Lipstick in Skew (a coral with pink duo chrome) looked with Plenty of Pout Plumping Lip Gloss in Ephemeral Nature (a coral pink) on top. I was worried the plumping action would sting as some brands’ do but this formula felt soft—not sticky—and just lightly tingled. I did feel my lips looked a bit fuller. That’s probably because of ingredients such as ginger root complex.
