With the Chinese Lunar New Year right around the corner on January 25 (Sat), we’re excited to see red fashion accessories, as well as various CNY-themed products, line the shelves.

However, one particular collection has been a cause for early celebration for beauty bloggers and makeup fans alike. Lunar Illusions Chinese New Year Collection 2020 is how MAC Cosmetics welcomes the Year of the Rat. The lineup includes cushion compacts, blush-ons, eyeshadows, lipsticks, and highlighters.

The collection features packaging that befits the auspicious occasion, with time-honored aesthetics, intricate shapes, and vibrant colors. However, the design steers away from the traditional bright red shades, and instead opts for more subdued, delicate tones and elaborate Chinese patterns.

Another unconventional choice in Lunar Illusions is the use of the divine dragon instead of a rat to match the coming year.

Chinese New Year is a time of family reunions and meeting up with friends, as well as a time to attract good fortune your way. Of course, you’d want to look your best. So let’s take a closer on each kit and see how much they can bring to your makeup routine!

First up is POWDER BLUSH – SPLIT PAN: DYNASTIC FANTASTIC (1,980 THB) – a two-tone powder blush in peachy pink and red-orange. Perfect for all skin tones, the blush can be used as two separate palettes or blended to give your cheeks a healthy glow for the New Year celebration.

EYESHADOW X 9: NOW AND ZEN (2,090 THB) is an eyeshadow palette set of nine shades with varying texture from lustre, veluxe, pearl to matte. The variety allows you to mix & match, so you’ll look stunning no matter in a prim & proper look or as a fiery femme fatale.

Get a gleaming gold look with EXTRA DIMENSION SKINFINISH / LUNAR ILLUSIONS (1,920 THB). The liquid-powder highlighter comes in a prismatic pink packaging, embossed with a dragon emblem to bring you good fortunes through the coming year.

LIPSTICK / LUNAR ILLUSIONS (980 THB) serves as the collection’s lipstick lineup, offering four shades in four classic textures: retro matte, matte, amplified, and lustre. Just like other Lunar Illusions items, the packaging features intricate Chinese patterns both on the outside and inside.

MAC includes four options in the LIPGLASS / LUNAR ILLUSIONS (920 THB) line: Ruby Woo (vivid red), Magically Delightful (coral), Goldfinch (high gold pearl), and Heroine (bright purple). The moisturizing lip gloss can be applied on its own or on top of lipstick for a glass-like shine and plump, smooth lips.

Last but not least is EMPTY CUSHION COMPACT / LUNAR ILLUSIONS (650 THB), which can be fitted with Lightful C SPF50/PA++++ Quick Finish Cushion Compact. The design combines an iridescent purple case and delicate patterns in yellow, blue, and pink, making the piece look like fine chinaware.

The compact comes with a mirror; if you’ve already got a cushion that fits with the set, you can switch to this one right away. If not, MAC also sells many matching selections!
