About Milly:
The label was established in 2000, when founder/designer Michelle Smith returned to New York after working for Paris powerhouses like Hermès and Dior. The collections consistently turn out feminine pieces and classic silhouettes in personally designed fabrics and prints that appeal to socialistas as well as starlets on the preppy side. Milly has perfected the Palm Beach palette with Upper East Side polish.

MAC Cremeblend Blush Spring 2011 Collection

For every contour control freak, for every persistent perfectionist comes this wondrous way to play with blush that gives you the most magnificent flexibility you’ve ever had…Starts creamy, stays creamy and proves once and for all that powder is NOT your only prerogative. You can get back to a new build for that retro “rouge” look Old Hollywood Glamour made modern or stop at subtle and natural; it’s all in your hands. In three aspects, two shades of each: One matched to skin, one for a brighter glow and one darker for cream contouring, it’s perfect for all skin colours, minus the silicone, particularly adept at preventing ashiness on darker complexions. Make powdery a thing of the past.

MAC Sheen Supreme Spring 2011 Collection

Gloss is good, but there’s nothing quite as wonderfully, worldly cinematic as a Lipstick – and they’re coming back! We’ve updated formulas to make it all plausible. Sheen Supreme is the combination of the strong, sensually saturated colour of, say, Tilda Swinton’s I Am Love Milanese Lipstick, leavened with the light feel and clear vibrancy, the see-through sheen of a modern New York City Girl Gloss. Imagine no muddy undertones, gliding in pearl or creme finish, moisturizing with no sticky/tacky feel. It’s a new medium, with M∙A∙C in the lead. This is retro/modern – and devastatingly chic.

March 2011

MAC Jeanious Spring 2011 Collection

Is there anything more enduring (besides love and heartbreak) than denim? Jeanius is a
celebration of the journey – country cousin to haute couture – the whole world wanted to go on
since America made it a national obsession. Since tooth-and-nail workwear jumped the pond in
farmer’s overalls to gussy up in the glam of the great Paris couture houses...France may take the
credit for creating it in 18th-century Nimes (de Nîmes = DeNim), but bright young American
women took it higher! M·A·C keeps up with a Jeanius collection of moody blues and indigo ink,
the quantum of modern cool, with four new limited-life denimised Eye Shadows, along with new
limited-life shades of Lipstick, Lipglass, Blush and Biker Blue & Frayed to Order Nail Lacquer.
Like the faux-metal “snap” on the Eye Shadow…completely riveting.
