There is always a new M.A.C collection to look forward to, because the brand tirelessly releases product after product practically every month. 2016 is no different, as the brand has updated us with what’s coming up for next year – and boy, is there a lot to get excited about. There are already four collections hitting the stores solely in the month of January, and here’s a roundup so you know what your budget is going to next month.


Ellie Goulding

We heard from the songstress about her collaboration with M.A.C here. We love the dreamy, shimmery neutral tones in this collection, especially on the Halcyon Days and Halcyon Nights palettes. What we like about these colours is that they’re subtle yet pretty, the kind you can easily weave into everyday makeup.

M.A.C Ellie Goulding collection, $29 to $90. Available at M.A.C Bugis Junction, Sephora ION, and TANGS at Tang Plaza from 1 January.


Faerie Whispers

This is another dreamy collection, since taking makeup inspiration from fairies means plenty of shimmer and pearl in pinks, lilacs, nudes and coppers. The new product here is the Foiled Shadow, which can be worn in a wet or dry finish – either way, there’s lots of luminosity as the pigments shimmer just like foil.

Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

For lovers of a matte lip, a liquid lipstick is a more intense way to wear it. M.A.C already does matte lipsticks in a good number of bold colours, and these liquid versions, which range from nudes to pinks to reds, take it up a notch when it comes to vividness.

M.A.C Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, $39. Available at all M.A.C counters and stores from 8 January.


VIVA GLAM Ariana Grande

The VIVA GLAM collections are always the most meaningful, as all proceeds from the sales go towards benefiting men, women and children whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS. Ariana Grande was announced as the latest VIVA GLAM ambassador just about a month back, and the first products to be released as part of this collection will be a lipstick in black plum, and a lip gloss in glittery pink.
