Hello beauties, today I’m bringing you a MAC Cosmetics’ Baking Beauties extravaganza! Each year, MAC Pro in Beverly Hills throws a special event to pre-launch a major collection. This year, they pre-launched THREE. As usual, the party was packed to the capacity. Here’s a view of what it looked like from the street:
Baking Beauties is MAC’s new spring collection that features- you guessed it- a baking theme. Cakes in pastel shades lined the perimeters of the store and the air swirled with sweet scents. Senior artists and trainers came up with these three lovely cake-themed body paint jobs. So delicate and pretty.
Now for all the new products.
I am really digging these liquid-powder highlighters from In Extra Dimension. My favorite way to use them is with a #190 foundation brush. Great for the cheek bones!
I’m also obsessed with Opalesse Extra Dimension eye shadow. Reminds me of Pink Opal pigment, but creamier. All the shadows in this collection look white-ish in the pot, but give off a different reflective color on the skin. This one reflects pink.
Here’s a Pro-only exclusive collection called Nudes & Metallics. Four shades of beige lipsticks in different textures with a matching blush and four eye shadows, as well as four metallic red-based lipsticks with a complimenting blush and four shadows. I’m pretty sure everything from this collection is already sold out.
Here’s a quick swatch of the metallic lipsticks. I love the super dark one called Dominate! (Top left swatch)

Here’s the motherload: Baking Beauties!
Anytime glitter is given the spotlight, I’m a happy girl. I was very excited to see that this collection included not one but TWO! I’m also a huge fan of the five Pro-Longwear Paint Pots. They each have a gorgeous shimmery finish.
It was so packed, I almost missed my MAC Pro buddy Jorge whizzing in and out of the crowd!
I wish I could have taken more photos of the lovely staff and swatched more products, but it was wall-to-wall people so I’m lucky I got what I did on film.
