MAC: Lightfully Bright Collection

Release Date: February 2011 (online exclusive)

MAC has a new collection that is keeping things light for the Spring. The Lightfully Bright Collection is primarily a skin care launch with just a bit of color from four limited edition Lipglass colors.

While I am usually into skin care and love to pamper my face, I am not that excited about these skin care products. What’s going to be different about them? When I read about this skin care line, I just think about the money it will cost. The skin care products are all limited edition as well so for me personally, if I were to try something and really like it, I’d be bummed out that I couldn’t get more of it in the coming months. I prefer to just find my favorite skin care products knowing they will be around in months to come.

I am intrigued by the Lipglasses in this collection. I get really excited for spring to get here when I see colors like these. I want to try Outer Space. It is a white with pink pearl in it; Although, I may have to work on my tan before I can truly pull off the color. I also want to try the Astro Cool Lipglass. I think the light lavender with pink pearl sounds really feminine and pretty.

This collection is only available online here in the United States. It you want to buy it in MAC stores, you’ll have to travel to Asia.


Outer Space—White with pink pearl (Limited Edition)
Astro Cool—Light lavender with pink pearl (Limited Edition)
Atmospheric—Pink with blue pearl (Limited Edition)
Ethereal—Pale blue with pink pearl (Limited Edition)

MAC: Lightful Collection

Release Date: July 30, 2009

“INNER” GLOW IS OVERRATED! M·A·C revivifies the look and luminescence of our high-beam brightening skincare formulations, using our own exclusively developed Charged Water technology – boosted beyond breakthrough this season with the new infusion of red tourmaline and silk, to shift skin’s receptivity, shake up its energy level.

Mousse it up and see triple-activate brightening with green tea anti-free-radical extract, vitamin C brightening prowess, tuberose protection from dehydration. Science trumps style…Beauty and the Geek go all the way! NEW POWER, PALE, PRETTY NEW PACKAGING, A NEW LIGHT ON BRIGHT!

Lightful is a new skincare line from MAC that focuses on brightening the skin. Originally aimed at the Asian market, it is now available on the MAC website for anyone who wants to benefit from the lightening and brightening qualities of these products.

The Lightful Ultramoisture Creme is a lightweight moisturizer that is almost like a gel. It is very hydrating without being greasy. It can be used at night or during the day under makeup. In fact, it is perfect for priming your face before applying foundation because it helps eliminate dry patches.

Lightful Foaming Cream Cleanser

The Lightful Cleanser is a very gentle face wash that somehow manages to wash off all your makeup without being harsh or drying. It actually leaves skin feeling soft and smooth and looking a little glowy. MAC really got it right with this cleanser. Although it’s very expensive compared to drugstore face washes, you really only need a tiny amount so it should last for a long time.

Lightful Charged Essence

Lightful Essence is a very light liquid that helps plump your skin. It doesn’t really seem to do too much in the way of brightening or lightening, but it does help seal in moisture and make your skin tone more even. I think this is one to skip because it really doesn’t do much.

Lightful Softening Lotion

Lightful Softening Lotion is like a toner in the sense that it leaves skin feeling fresh and helps to even out your skin. It contains Vitamin C, which helps to lighten dark spots over time and give the skin a little glow. It also has a very fresh scent.

This is a small collection that is perfect for anyone looking for a brighter complexion. There are a few duds here, but the cleanser in particular does a great job and is definitely worth a try.

MAC: Moisturelush Collection

Release Date:
December 26, 2007

This upcoming MAC Cosmetics collection will feature two new skincare products: Moisturelush Cream and Moisturelush Eye Cream. These two new products are suitable for all skin types, but look to be simply ideal for those of us who have extremely dry skin. And since, yes, that would describe ME, I’m unbelievably excited for this release! ;) I can’t wait! Read more about each product:


Moisturelush Cream is a thicker face cream that should provide ultimate hydration for dry skin – it looks to be a lifesaver for dry skin types. It calms your skin, prepares your skin for makeup application and provides antioxidant protection. It is a rich, lush, lasting moisturizer.

The formula is non-acnegenic, and is dermatologist- and ophthalmologist-tested. It contains oryzanol and other antioxidants which protect your skin from environmental damage. Moisturelush Cream also contains caffeine, an anti-irritant, which makes the formula extremely smooth, comfortable and wearable. The formula also contains barley extract, wheat germ extract, cholesterol and linoleic acid which maintain your skin’s lipid barrier to ensure soft, supple skin.


Like the Moisturelush Cream, this eye cream is a super-hydrating, long lasting moisturizer. The rich, soothing formula does just about everything! Moisturelush Eye Cream contains yeast extract, which really helps to de-puff. It also contains additional agents and special botanicals which provide that needed lifting and firming for the delicate skin around your eyes. The formula contains a vitamin E derivative and antioxidant, to help protect against damage, as well as Sucrose, an anti-irritant, to help calm your skin and provide superb wearability. And finally, special luminous optical diffusers minimize the appearance of dark under-eye circles, lines, wrinkles and other imperfections, all while providing your skin with added radiance. It makes your skin brighter, tighter, smoother and healthier! Like the Moisturelush Cream, Moisturelush Eye Cream is non-acnegenic, and is dermatologist- and ophthalmologist-tested. Wow! This little product has a LOT to offer!

UPDATE: Thanks to BeautyBlitz, we were able to find prices on these upcoming products! The Moisturelush Cream will be $29.50 USD, and the Moisturelush Eye Cream will be $28.50 USD.
