The MAC 'Reel Sexy' Collection Offers a Lush Palette of Purples

MAC Cosmetic’s new makeup line 'Reel Sexy' uses many colors to exude the feel of cinema, and the purples in this line are very prominent. While the purples in the palettes are bold and statement-making, they are definitely very wearable.

The collection, which features deep purples and pastel lilacs, was inspired by the cinema and features Kirsten McMenamy as the cover model. The dark, plum-like purples in the lipsticks, nail lacquers, and eye shadows offer a great way to incorporate color into an evening look, while the lighter shades in the Cremesheen Glass lip glosses are suitable for subtle and romantic day wear.

If having a statement lip or eye look is perhaps too bold you for, the collection's Magenta blush is a great option. Its pinky-purple tones are deep enough to provide a lasting impression, but can be easily toned down for everyday wear. Whether or not colour is your thing, the purples in this collection are sure to catch your eye.
