The resort life: MAC and Lilly Pulitzer

I have to say I was a bit surprised to hear that MAC was doing a collection with preppy Palm Beach resort designer Lilly Pulitzer.  MAC's other fashion collaborations have been with designers who are, ahem, much more youth-oriented and cutting-edge (Heatherette, DSquared, Ungaro) so I could see Lilly Pulitzer working with, say, Elizabeth Arden but not so much MAC.  Lest I be accused of ageism (I'm not ageist, I'm an old lady myself!), I will say that I like the blush and eye shadow that was offered in this collection - springy colors and a fun print provide an antidote to the winter blues. 

Here's the Pearlmatte blush, with and without flash in natural light:

And Pearlmatte eyeshadow trio:

Mac lilly eyes

I think these (and the rest of the colors in the collection) are definitely a good reflection of Lilly Pulitzer style.  I like that the eye shadow was in her signature colors, bright pink and green:


As evidenced below, floral patterns abound in Lilly Pulitzer so it's no surprise they were incorporated into the design of the MAC collection.

Personally I find the floral prints to work better on makeup than on clothes.  ;)
