Best Bet: Alice + Olivia for MAC Pigment Pots


Achieving a proper smoky eye takes quality products — it's easy to mistakenly end up looking more bruised than smoldering. MAC's new collaboration with Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia launched yesterday, bringing three new loose-powder pigment pots to your after-work palette. The black Later shade has a deep-violet sheen (setting it apart from MAC's gold-flecked Dark Soul shade), while the pinky-pearl If It Sparkles shadow is ideal for blending. Both concentrated colors brush on smoothly for perfecting that alluring, straight-from-the-runway look.
