MAC Future Faces Collection

Company’s Description

MAC forges ahead with a three-in-one force: Powder, Foundation and Tinted Moisturizer altogether.

First, Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder blurs the line between skincare and makeup, with a pressed texture that beautifies as it benefits. Gives a sheer to medium, smooth, even coverage for a flawlessly soft and even tone with caring, comforting properties.

Studio Fix Fluid and Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 shade extensions fill in all the gaps.

A broad, all-inclusive shade range means M·A·C Artists can cover everybody, one beautiful conquest at a time. Call your clients most in need of convincing, and watch what happens!

MAC does not add skin color shades to their line very often. But in its Future Faces collection, MAC will introduce foundation shades that are both lighter and darker than the shades currently available to MAC customers.

These are, in my opinion, additions to MAC’s line that could not have come too soon. The new shades recognize the needs of women and men with very pale skin and also women and men of color.

MAC has not only added new shades in this collection, but has added a new foundation–the Studio Careblend Pressed Powder–that gives sheer-to-medium coverage. At this time, it is unclear what the “careblend” part of the foundation means, but it is possible that the foundation incorporates the Care Blends Essential Oils that MAC released as part of its Warm & Cozy collection.

Are you glad MAC has added these shades?
