MAC N Collection

Nude Glamour- The N Collection from MAC

In my line of work which is stay at home mom, makeup enthusiast and aspiring creenwriter/best selling author and avid reader, there is a demand for nude makeup. Because really, where do I go where I need to be all sassy and done up? Except for the occasional jaunts over to Hollywood for a glamorous event or two, my day- to- day look is done up but conservative, save for a few of those wild MAC shades I wear on my eyelids. I am the mom you will find wearing a feather boa, oversize sunglasses and a bucket hat with sweats. I will have nude-ish makeup on my face and most likely my short nails will be painted.

The N Collection gives me goosebumps, I love it so. Why? Because it's really versatile, any woman of any color can wear it and it's very polished looking. I don't need to give you the rundown at this point of the consistency of the products because you know the gloss is shiny, the lipstick creamy and the eyeshadows blend like a dream. Plus, with MAC, you can experiment and blend and layer and make up your own rules as you go along.

Here are the details from this super collection. I starred my favorites in case you were wondering.

1N Light frosted gold with pink pearl
*2N Creamy light pink (very J.Lo during her Bennifer days)
*3N Milky pastel pink (I've been looking for this exact color FOREVER and alas, here it is)
4N Mid-tone creamy brown
5N Plummy sheer brown

1N Creamy white tan (goes nicely over a pink or nude shade of lipstick)
*2N Creamy neutral yellow pink
3N Neutral brown with gold and pink pearl
4N Light chocolate brown with red pearl

(Can I ask you to forgo the dragon lady red nails with cheap tips and opt for a short, clean nail in any of these subtle shades? Thank you)
