Ahhh fall – a time when the cosmetic companies unleash the big guns and the hard to get limited edition products. After Labor Day weekend BBQs and the weather, the new fall makeup collections are a hot topic around the water cooler now. The new must-have product The Beauty Bug has been telling her co-workers about? MAC’s Spiced Chocolate Eye Shadow Quad.
When The Beauty Bug visited Her local MAC store and spoke to the makeup artist about the quad, the artist was most excited about Nanogold, a discontinued iridescent sheer yellow pink frost that applies with a gorgeous sheen. It can be used both as an all-over lid color and a highlighter on the brow bone. Other colors in the quad include Brash, a frosty reddish copper; Spiced Chocolate, a dirty deep reddish brown matte; and Sweet Chestnut, a rich cranberry frost. Part of the Cult of Cherry Collection, the quad is very glamodrama, yet still very everyday. See The Beauty Bug’s photos below for an easy fall eye. Apply Beige-ing shadestick all over the lid, followed by Nanogold. Work Sweet Chestnut and Brash into the lid and blend. Apply while burning an Autumn Leaves Yankee Candle.
MAC’s Spiced Chocolate Quad is available for $36 at MAC stores and counters, and online at maccosmetics.com.
