MAC say, ‘Head straight to the fast lane and have a ball with MAC It’s a Strike! A range of Lipstick and Cremesheen Glass is racked in red. Rich eye shadow and Fluidline Pen shades will have everyone begging to join your league, while easy hues of Casual Colour are right up anyone’s alley. Practice a clean follow-through with three creamy colors of M∙A∙C Studio Nail Lacquer. Finally, knock them all down with the luminous allure of new Pearlmatte Face Powder.’

Loving all those puns (!) and the campaign imagery is really cool.

If you get a chance to check out the Pearlmatte Powder, it’s worth a look as it is embossed with the pin design and rather pretty.
