MAC has paired with New York based womenswear designer Proenza Schouler to release a stunning limited edition line for Summer 2014. The brand was founded in 2002 and has grown to be sold in over 100 of the top retail stores in the country. For their first foray into the cosmetics world, they have joined forces with MAC to produce a colorful and confident line that could grab anyone’s attention.
The thing that stood out to me about this line, however, was actually the packaging and not the make up at all. Even after getting halfway through writing this post, I’m not sure if I’ve taken a good look at what shades are actually included in this collection. The chrome ombre packaging of these products is different than anything I’ve ever seen before and really catches your eye both in person and in print. The shades, the ombre, and the shine create a beautiful combination.
But are these products really worth it just for some fancy packaging? After closer inspection, the lip and blush shades look pretty standard, nothing that really jumps out at me. They’re all beautiful but I’m sure they’re very close to other products many of us already own.
Companies spend a lot of time and money on the boxes and containers many of our favorite products come in. Do you think its worth it? Have you ever bought something just for the pretty packaging?
