I had the opportunity to see this collection the other day and I am thinking of buying the Studio Sculpt Foundation and also the 191 Foundation Brush. Both things look amazing. The foundation is said to have a gel-based texture, and it looks so promising... The brush just looks fantastic and I think this is a good chance to get my first Mac brush...
There is another product that I would like to have and this is the Prep and Prime.
Maybe next week I will be able to write a review about these products. I am getting more and more into Mac products and they are just addictive for me...
Now, let's have a look at the collection.
The official launch date has been February 5th 2009.

The products included in Well Defined are:
  • Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation: gel-based cream formula. Water-resistant. Broadspectrum sun-protection. For all skin types. This one comes in a tube. The texture is said to be silky and creamy. It is claimed to hydrate and nourish skin, and I hope this does not mean putting oil on my face. They say skin looks flawless and that is a great word in make up. Besides, it is said to perform very well in photography and video. But the truth is that it has SPF15 and it is said that foundations with SPF make your face white in photos... So this is something we have to check. Easily blendable from sheer to full coverage.Typically, Mac foundations are not very popular, according to the reviews I have read. We will see how this new one performs.
Have you tried it?
  • Studio Sculpt Concealer: gel based cream. It is said to be a full coverage concealer which does not become cakey or dry
  • Brushes 191 Foundation Brush & 195 Concealer Brush
  • Prep + Prime Skin

First!

Well, this is my very first entry on this blog, which is going to be entitled Catanya's Things, so I would like to tell you what it is going to be about. I am currently mad about cosmetics, especially make up, and I am constantly trying and testing new brands and products, so this space will be dedicated to the great world of beauty.
I am particularly fond of brands such as Nars, Mac, Chanel, Clinique, Dior, Givenchy... and my favourite beauty product is foundation. I like being up-to-date with all the new products and also the limited edition collections.
Lately, I have been lucky enough to work for brands such as Chanel, Clinique, Orlane, Clarins, Lancôme, among others, which has allowed me to know how the beauty communuty works as well as learn about cosmetology and makeup.
I chose this picture from François Nars' famous book "Making Faces" because it is an example of the effects of makeup on our appearance. I think makeup is a tool to make us feel sometimes more confident because, when used appropriately, it helps to highlight natural beauty.
I hope you enjoy my blog and please feel free to participate as much as you want!

Bienvenidos. Esta es la primera entrada en este blog, que se llamará Catanya's Things, y me gustaría contaros de qué va a tratar.
Soy una gran aficionada a los cosméticos y en especial al maquillaje y estoy constantemente probando nuevas marcas y productos así que este espacio estará dedicado al fascinante mundo de la belleza.

Me atraen marcas como Nars, Chanel, Mac, Givenchy, Dior, Clinique... y mi producto preferido es la base de maquillaje.
Me gusta estar al día de los nuevos productos y las ediciones limitadas.
En los últimos tiempos he podido trabajar para marcas como Chanel, Clinique, Orlane, Clarins, Lancôme, entre otras, lo que me ha hecho conocer mejor cómo funciona el mundo de la cosmética así como aprender sobre algo de cosmetología y maquillaje.
Elegí esta imagen del famoso libro "Making Faces" de François Nars ya que ejemplifica los efectos del maquillaje en nuestra apariencia. Creo en el maquillaje como una herramienta para hacernos sentir más seguras ya que, usado apropiadamente, nos puede ayudar a destacar la belleza natural.
Espero que disfrutéis con el blog, no dudéis en participar tanto como os apetezca!
