MAC Strength Collection


From MAC: “Color is a vehicle for women to flex their femininity, and MAC’s new collection reflects this state of mind and style. It starts with dramatic eyes and lips pumped up with vivid color to project power while cheeks are softly chiseled with natural tones. And, nailing it for overall presentation, MAC’s high-gloss nail lacquer.”

MAC Après Chic Collection Info


From MAC: “This gorgeous look starts with luminous M·A·C Mineralize Skinfinish and Mineralize Blush applied with the 187 Duo Fibre Face Brush. Use the 287 Duo Fibre Eye Shadow Brush to build layers of dimensional colour with Mineralize Eye Shadow. Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm packs lips with moisture, while adding the right pop of colour and shine. And, because eventually the mittens will come off, Nail Lacquer in Dangerously Fun heats things up in blazing berry red.”

MAC Beth Ditto Collection Info

MAC and Beth Ditto. Arguably one of the most intriguing collection promo images I’ve seen in a while! Looks pretty spectacular, no? Just about everyone suspected this would include repromoting the Penultimate eyeliner again, but I’m delighted to tell you no it doesn’t.

MAC Tres Cheek Collection

The MAC Tres Cheek collection (super cute name by the way!) is a simple launch. It’s just 6 limited edition (duh) blushes. Nothing more. And I LIKE that. No gimmicks or bullshit, just some PRETTY BLUSHES! :)
The collection launches next week officially, but it’s already up for MAC Pro members to purchase, so if you’re fortunate enough to live near a pro store you might want to call and see if they have it in.
The colors are (starting at top left)…
Pink Tea – Pink-beige.
Immortal Flower – Bright peach.
Full of Joy – Lavender.
Lovecloud – Bright mid-tone pink.
Modern Mandarin – Red orange.
Peony Petal – Bright blue pink.
All of these are satins except Full of Joy, which is a frost. I’ve been told Lovecloud actually leans a little peachy. Darker skintones will probably want to avoid Pink Tea and Full of Joy as they will possibly read as a bit ashy on darker skin. Please, please, please check  out Modern Mandarin if you have dark skin. Orange blush can look amazing on anyone but it’s especially stunning on darker complexions. They will be online and at MAC stores/counters, and retail for $20 each.
Yes, I already placed an order… O:) I snatched up Modern Mandarin, Immortal Flower, and Full of Joy. I was tempted to grab Lovecloud and Pink Tea, but I was trying to be good because there’s so many great things coming out from MAC in the near future. I thought the three I picked would be the most unique to my stash. Peony Petal doesn’t speak to me because I prefer softer pinks since I’m so pale, and also being so so so cool-toned I actually like to wear more neutral blushes or even warm pinks. Whatevs. Personal preference.
I’m pretty sure these blushes are all going to fly off the shelves. Will you be purchasing anything from the Tres Cheek collection?
