Chris Chang, of Poesia (a Shanghai based fashion label), is responsible for the kaleidoscope of colors in this newest MAC collaboration. Chang drew inspiration from the ancient Chinese artform, Kunqu, one of the oldest types of Chinese opera. I was sent several products and haven't had a chance to use them all yet, but I did want to get this post up so that you guys could see everything before the makeup collection launches on May 5th (online) with the in-store launch on May 12th. I will be adding swatches to this post later this week.
Cream Colour Bases ($23):These are traditional MAC colour bases in the colors Sock It-Xiqu, Rich Coral, and Peony Pavilion. Although the inserts in these say they shouldn't be used on lips or eyes, many people do use them as eye shadow base (to enhance shadow pigment) or on the lips as a creamy lipstick. I use them as blush. They are very pigmented and apply best with a duo fiber stippling brush to help blend out the color. For my light to medium complexion, my favorite color is Sock It-Xiqu (no idea how to pronounce this, by the way), because it's a cool toned lavender, perfect for spring. The other two colors are more traditional, orangy, red based cheek colors.
