My Favorite MAC Collection by Pedro LourençoSunday, July 13, 2014
I love eyeshadow palettes. I think you get so much more than just the 4 shades. You can create countless looks and they all complement each other well. I received this Pedro Lourenço eyeshadow quad from MAC a couple of months ago and I have been using it on quite a number of brides. Of course, I had to use it on myself first before I was feeling generous enough to share it with my brides, and all of these eyeshadow shades can be blended with my existing eyeshadows to make a new shade.

Allow me to give a background on who Pedro Lourenço is.
"With the debut of his first ready-to-wear collection at Paris Fashion Week in 2010, Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenço sealed his reputation as one of fashion’s most talented young creatives. Receiving instant critical acclaim for his contemporary design aesthetic and strong creative identity, the then 19-year-old Lourenço’s collection proved a hit with industry insiders such as Carine Roitfield and Hilary Alexander and drew early comparisons to Nicholas Ghesquière for his clean, architectural style. Called a “wunderkind” by several leading publications, the young designer produces two international collections a year alongside two capsule collections for the Brazilian market." -http://www.businessoffashion.com/pedro-lourenco
Now, going back to the color choices on this palette, you might think that it only goes well with my skin because I am fair skinned. But I have been using this on morena skin and they are all loving it because it emphasizes their golden tone even more.
Not only is the nude quad the most wearable in the collection but everything in the Pedro Lourenço collection will be of use by women who are looking for entry-level shades from MAC. Everything in this collection is so wearable whether it be the lipsticks, the blush, the lacquers, or glosses. I would definitely recommend every item in this collection.
Neither is it very conservative but the shades are more wearable and could be used for a really long time. I am dying to get my hands on the other products from the collection! Just look at that color palette! This has got to be my favorite collection from MAC so far.
