MAC’s summer superhero-inspired “Electric Wonder” collection has some of the nicest nude shades this season. The limited edition colour collection features a carefully edited group of lipsticks, lipglass, highlighters, bronzers and a standout eyeshadow palette. It’s called the “Desert Lightning” Eyeshadow x 12 palette and it is worth a careful look.
