Best Bet: MAC’s Cham Pale Collection


From the bold berry and wine shades of the holidays, MAC takes a turn toward the lighter side with its new Cham Pale collection, released on Sunday. In stark contrast to the blue eye shadows and orange lips of the spring runways, this line is understated, rife with golds, blushing pinks, and taupes that aim for a warm glow rather than an eye-popping effect (read: products you'll actually use on a regular basis). The Caviar Dreams shadow palette offers eye-brightening nudes for day or blending at night, while the four-shade collection of frosty champage-colored lipsticks lends a pretty, refreshingly natural look.

Caviar Dreams eye-shadow palette, $36, and Cham Pale lipstick, $14.50, online.
