Scoop Post: MAC Primed for Perfection Collection

In makeup news MAC is launching their own set of highlighters in the Primed for Perfection collection.  Deciding what to use a highlighter for can be confusing.  You can accent the face or downplay flaws.  Depending on the formula and shade, I use them under my eyes or to highlight my cheek bones.  Personally I'm not thrilled about this release.  I think the products are just ok, nothing special.  I'm curious to see if this will compete with YSL's Touche Eclat and Chanel's Stylo Eclat Lumiere.  I will definitely have to swatch and do a comparison.  More details below.  Available April, 7th 2011. 

"MAC owns the primers category. Now we’re talking Prep + Prime further than ever.
