MAC Brooke Shields Collection-Misses the Mark When None of the Shadows Are Named Blue Lagoon

Cara Delevingne is that you?  Oh wait, it's just Brooke Shields from the 80's...

Cara Delevingne is that you and your brows? Oh wait, it’s just Brooke Shields from the 80’s…

If you have been following me, you know I love a super long post title.  #sorrynotsorry

This morning while checking my emails, I saw that I got a message from MAC, about this new Brooke Shields Collection, that I had no idea was coming out.  I’m a little confused by the collaboration, because although Ms. Shields is known for her brows, I don’t think of her as a celebrity who has as big connection to makeup.

I browsed the collection, and it’s nice.  The colors are pretty, and the packaging is okay, but nothing I haven’t seen before.

Brooke Shields Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow


Left: Trusted Instinct

Right: Mortal

These shadow sets have 5 complimentary shadow colors that range from matte to super shimmery.  The shadow sets retail for $44 each.

Gravitas Eye Shadow X 15


The shade names in this set are: Pretty, Soft Brown, Expensive Pink, Clove, Satin Taupe, Canter, Luscious, Antiqued, Psyche, Carbon, Shroom, Persuade, Plummed, Lofty and Pepper.  This shadow palette retails for $85, which is a great value for 15 MAC shadows, but with so many quality and less expensive palette choices out there, this is a big out of my range.

Brow Set


This clear brow gel retails for $17.  I’m actually really pleased that they included this in the collection because Brooke was all about the brows back in the day!

Veluxe Brow Liner


Veluxe Brow Liner has a powdery matte formula.  The shade available as part of this collection is Brunette, which is described as a “Muted mid-tone grey.”  Veluxe Brow Liner retails for $20.

Opulash Optimum Black


This is a new formula from MAC that is supposed to be more a more intense black, and give your lashes more volume, curl and length.  This formula is supposed to last a full 15 hours.  Retail cost is $17.

Brooke Shields Lipstick


Left: Excite

Right: Gospel

These two lipsticks are really gorgeous shades.  They both retail for $22, and look like they can look great on many skin tones.  Of the collection, I am interested in these lipsticks the most, but maybe that is because I am a lipstick junkie.

Brooke Shields Tinted Lipglass


Left: Artful

Right: Knockout

Retail: $22

Brooke Shields Creme Color Base


These cream colors are BEAUTIFUL!  They coordinate so well with the lipsticks and shadows in this collection.  These creme colors can be applied on bare skin or over makeup.  The color is buildable.  I have a hard time with cream based products on my face because I am oily, but I may give these a try because the color is great.  This set retails for $31.

Brooke Shields Bronzing Powder


This bronzing powder retails for $27.50 and is in shade Scone.

Brooke Shields Studio Nail Lacquer


Left: Dignity

Right: Pricey

These nail lacquers are also a hit for me.  Especially the Pricey shade.  Retail cost: $17.
