MAC x Padma Lakshmi 17-piece Makeup collection is so beautiful. The host of Top Chef has a nude lipstick for every skin tone. The best place to get this collection is at Nordstrom. You will score a full size 9-pan MAC palette free and grab a Nordstrom $147 value free beauty bag with any $125 makeup purchase. I haven’t seen any makeup collection this tempting for a very long time. The MAC x Padma desert dusk palette has sold out at MAC already (launched yesterday).

The 70’s Sunset Quad features Sand & Clay, a mid-tone matte cool beige; Cardamom, a cool light green with a touch of white frost; Mumtaz, a coppery purple with golden flecks; and All’s Rosy, a mid-tone plum. Lakshmi favors the purple hue. “It makes light or dark brown eyes really stand out, and is just so flattering on medium skin tones.”

While we’re on the topic of eyes, there are three dual-ended Powerpoint Eye Pencils ($18.50) for the woman who needs options.


Iced Heather/Kerala Sun contains a silver frosty shade and a pure gold for a metallic eye, Indian Ink/Mossy Green has your pure black and a deep green, and finally, Bordeauxline/Molé Brown features deep plum and cool brown. “I don’t know any woman who doesn’t want their makeup bag to be as small as possible,” Lakshmi adds. “I thought, For most women, it takes a long time to wear down your eyeliner, even if you wear it every single day. You don’t need the long pencil of one color, so I made them dual ended.”

On to lips: Lakshmi’s collection features six shades ($17.50 each):


Sunset Rose is a creamy brown with pearlescent accents. Apricot Gold is a mid-tone peach nude. Nude Fudge is a mid-tone matte neutral. Mittai Pink is a hot fuchsia. Blue Blood is a true, matte red. Sumac is a deep, matte plum.

Powder Blush Duo ($33) across your cheekbones.


There are two options, Moon & Shine — a frosty highlight with a matte, warm, beige and Melon Pink, which couples a gilded peachy-pink hue that features a satin finish, with a mid-tone frosty orange.
