Fashion! Who doesn’t love fashion?! Give me anything ombre/gradient and I’m all over it!

Proenza Schouler is a women’s accessories and wear tag created by the dynamic duo of Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. Proenza was Hernandez’ mother’s maiden name, while Schouler was McCollough’s mothers. How sweet! Now, MAC packaging is incredible and when it is inspired by fashion – MINDBLOWING, so let’s take a good look at these beautiful products!!

And, these are just the boxes! Beautiful!!

Inside, they look similar to the boxes but are VERY reflective and gorgeous!

Let’s look at the lipstick, Mangrove, first. It’s a fiery red-orange matte (and it’s still available ONLINE) and the release in-store is Thursday, April 24th. It’s absolutely gorgeous but I’m sure if you miss it and get Lady Danger instead, you’ll have something similar!

Next up were the two ombre/gradient blushes that SOLD OUT incredibly quickly, of course. They will be available in-store on Thursday, April 24th.

The powder pink-to-deep pink one is Sunset Beach, and the tan-to-orange one is Ocean City.

I found them not-so-pigmented, and I used a blush brush that was prickly in order to get more product to apply it on my face, and it still did not seem to apply like I imagined. Usually MAC blushes are really easy to pick up and apply and are decently pigmented. This was kind of a disappointment.

There are more pieces (like nail polish) to this collection, so go check it out on the website.

Will you be hauling anything while it lasts?

And, does this qualify as fashion or faux pas to you? I want to hear your thoughts!

{Edit: Here’s the comparison of Mangrove and Lady Danger!}
