A sophisticated makeup line inspired by a timeless beauty.

The MAC Brooke Shields limited-edition collection arrives this month featuring lipsticks, lip glosses, eye shadows, and nail polishes inspired by the iconic model.

The day-to-night concept behind the collection is translated through easy-wear neutrals in matte and shimmer, deep plums, and bright poppy orange-reds. The 13-piece set pays homage to Shield’s trademark full, striking eyebrows with the inclusion of two brow products (one, a clear gel for taming and the other, a brunette pencil for filling in sparse areas).

The eye shadow palette is the most impressive item (and priced accordingly at $102) and features a whopping 15 shades — a generous amount for a celebrity collaboration. The colours work on many skin tones and includes a deep black for lining or creating a smoky eye. It is pricey, but it might be the only palette you’ll need for the next year, or so.

The urbane packaging is also a visual treat: a matte, steel grey accented by bold orange — both modern and mature at once.

Lipsticks ($26), Lipglass lipglosses ($26), Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow ($53), Gravitas eyeshadow palette ($102), Brow Set ($21), Veluxe Brow Liner ($24), Opulash Optimum Black Mascara ($20), Cream Colour Base Duo ($37), Bronzing Powder ($33), and Nail lacquer ($20 each), available at MAC stores and on macccomestics.com
