I have only learned of Pedro Lourenco, this very young and very talented designer, through his collaborative collection with MAC Cosmetics. This prompted me to look him up in Google and upon seeing his designs, I immediately concluded that I will hire him as my personal couturier when I become a Billionaire. Here are a few pieces from his 2014 Spring/Summer Collection and I am utterly amazed at how he's injected eccentricity into these classic pieces without compromising their wearability and simplicity. And don't you just love his talent in mixing and matching neutrals? I could see myself wearing his works-all of them!

THE VERDICT:

Now Pedro's talent for hues is very much evident in this eyeshadow palette of his namesake collection. To date, this is my most favorite color combination of all MAC Eyeshadow Palettes because it's neutral and has the right shade of pink to give my peepers a blushing definition without making 'em look swollen and irritated.

The palette comes with two matte eyeshadows and two frost eyeshadows. It comes in a luxe, gold and black limited edition compact. C'mon, how can you resist that color combination?

Swatches after the break!

MAC PEDRO LOURENCO EYESHADOW QUAD IN ACTION

I noticed that it kinda gives off this purplish and rosy hue on my eyes when I mix pink with brown, which is nice because it shows that this palette offers multiple color possibilities. Can't think of any other word to describe this palette, but PRETTY. Pigmentation is in between light and intense, and it definitely looks great on light, medium and tan skin, although it could appear too light on dark skin tone. I've been using it everyday because I find that it goes well with any lip and blush color, and even my outfit choices, and I'm glad that it has an equal mix of matte and frost eyeshadows, my favorite eyeshadow finishes of all time.

4 Lovely Thoughts

  1. Even without the Pedro Lourenco collab, if MAC came up with a palette of these colors, it would be just as amazing. I adore the color combo of this palette. Too perfect for words!

  2. Lovely neutrals! The color combo reminds me of the UD Naked 3, espevially qhen you said that it gives a rosy hue. ;)

  3. The colors in the palette remind me of UD's naked 3 palette because of the vintage romantic feel the colors bring.Still undecided if id buy this palette because aside from the lovely colors, getting 4 mac shadows for 2500 is quite a steal.
