MAC Cosmetics Lunar New Year collection

See all the images of MAC's mythical collection that will be dropping just in time for Chinese New Year.

With a bunch of major brands dropping Lunar New Year collections, it's no surprise that MAC Cosmetics has now joined in with a range titled Lunar Illusions. MAC releases limited-edition lines every Chinese New Year and its 2020 edition might just be our favourite yet.

The gorgeous packaging features intricate patterns in a range of colours, making it the perfect addition to your vanity. Strangely though, despite 2020 marking the Year of the Rat, MAC seems to have opted instead for a mythical approach.

The statement piece of the line is a shimmery golden Extra Dimension Skin Finish highlighter with a fearsome-looking dragon imprinted in the powder. The stunning highlighter gives off a dewy, natural-looking glow that's absolutely perfect for daytime wear.
