“Safari” fashion has been big this summer. Everything is khaki, olive, and very ‘Ernest Hemingway African safari” in both clothing and makeup. MAC has introduced “Style Warrior” for this summer. It’s style is still on par with other brands for this summer but it is much more “fierce”.

The packaging for all of the products is bronze with animal prints and “tribal” designs. I am a sucker for anything animal print so I really like the limited edition packaging.I believe the “leopard” print is for warmer undertones and the “zebra” print is for cooler undertones.

EYES: There are 5 Eye Shadows that retail for $14.50. There is Night Manoeuvres which is a smoky deep taupe. I love it on all eye colors. There is Soft Force which is a pale gold shimmer that works nicely on pale to medium skintones. There is Vibrant Grape which is a magenta. I think this would be amazing on medium skin to dark skintones with brown eyes or even green eyes. Bright Future is a bright yellow gold shimmer that will make blue eyes pop. And there is Tempting, a warm brown shimmer that is a beautiful neutral for summer. An Eye Kohl Pencil in Smolder (black) and Pro Lash Mascara have been relaunched.

LIPS & NAILS: There are 4 Lipsticks that retail for $14.00. Sunsational is a warm gold neutral that pairs nicely with a smoky eye. Brave New Bronze which is a pinky bronze neutral. Tribalist is a satin blackberry, I think it is my favorite lipstick in the collection. And there is Purple Rite which is a violet shimmer. I think this would be nice paired with a forest green smoky eye. There are 4 Lipglass Lip Glosses that go for $14. Liberated is a sheer gold that will add warmth over any shade. Gold Rebel is a coppery gold shimmer. Fierce & Fabulous is a frosty purpley pink, great for pale skins with dark hair. Style Warrior (my fave) is a blackened burgundy bronze. If your lips have a natural brown tone to them, this would be stunning. There are 3 Nail Lacquers. THere is Peaceable which is a super shimmery metallic golden beige. I love it with a tan. Mercenary which is a bronze with dark bronze shimmers, very “antiqued”. The last one is Violet Fire which is a bright magenta purple shimmer. Nail Colors go for $11.

FACE: There are 2 Beauty Powder Blushes. One is Eversun which is a bronze with gold shimmers, perfect for darker skins. THe other is On A Mission, a natural pinky plum. Both go for $18. There are 2 Bronzing Powders. One is Refined Gold and the other Solar Rich, retail for $21.  Items that have been relaunched: Solar Bits (love those babies), Lustre Drops, Iredescent Loose Powder, Skinsheen Leg Spray, and brushes.

Animal print bags have been launched with this collection. I like the collection but I haven’t purchased anything from it. There appears to be nothing that I don’t already own. If I fall for it, it would be because of the packaging.
