MAC: All Ages, All Races, All Sexes Collection

Release Date: January 7, 2010

MAC Cosmetics All Ages, All Races, All Sexes Collection

All Ages, All Races, All Sexes is our credo. Now M?A?C takes the “One World” idea further than ever, with a multi-culti colour story intent on a universal focus – spectacularly shaded and shaped brows for all, because beautiful people come in colours! Miraculously matched to the individual, Impeccable Brow Pencil is the ultimate artist’s tool to fill, lengthen and shape, with a firm tip that sharpens application for high-performance precision. Penultimate Brow Marker, in one shade suits all, has a liquefied glide adept at the all-important arch. But that’s not all: Lipstick, Lipglass, Eye Shadow and Nail Lacquer shade extensions speak your language, a match for every international skin tone.

MAC All Ages, All Races, All Sexes is a collection aimed at everyone. As the name implies, any person imaginable could find something they could use in this collection, and that includes long-time MAC loyalists as well as those who have never visited a makeup counter before.

This collection is chock-full of neutral shades and is reminiscent of the N Collection. In fact, MAC dug out the 5N lipstick from N for the occasion. The limited edition shades of lipstick, lipglass, and eyeshadow offered here are all safe bets for those of us who simply can’t pull off bright colors or don’t want to. One of the most exciting things about this collection is the return of Banshee eye shadow from Rebel Rock, a glittery taupe/mauve that complements every eye color. If you missed out on Banshee the first time around, now is the time to stock up!

Brows are heavily emphasized in this collection, with the Impeccable Brow Pencil, the Penultimate Brow Maker, Brow Set, and Brow pencils. Those with lighter hair will be thrilled with the brow offerings for blondes, who normally don’t encounter as many brow color options as darker-haired women. Well-shaped and defined brows can really help frame the face and complete your look, so it’s great to have so many options joining MAC’s permanent collection. The brow pencils and gels are easy to work with and create a natural look. If you’re not a fan of the drawn-on eyebrow look, steer clear of the Penultimate Brow Maker, which is an inky marker that is very noticeable.

One thing to note is that with the launch of this collection, pigment jars will be shrinking. The traditional 7.5 gram jar is being replaced with a 4.3 gram jar. This would be fine if the price reflected the smaller amount, but unfortunately the price will remain the same. There are two new pigment colors: Universal Mix, a sparkly white, and Rich Life, a very dark brown with a hint of silver sparkle that is perfect for creating a smokey eye.

All Ages, All Races, All Sexes is a great collection if you are looking to stock up on neutrals and a great place to look for shades that are suitable for darker skin tones.

MAC: Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection

Release Date:
January 8, 2009

MAC has really been giving out the gifts this holiday season with all of the new collections they’ve been putting out. January 8, 2009 there is another collection set to release and this one is huge! With this collection, there is definitely something for everyone because they have specially formatted shades to go with all colors of hair. The collection is appropriately called Brunette Blonde Redhead, but for all of you out there who follow MAC releases religiously, you will recognize the collection as one that originally was called Hair. Can we just say that we like the name they went with so much better than Hair. Anyhow, the collection offers personalized palettes to make and create whatever look you wish for.

Like I said, this collection is a big one. There is something for the eyes, cheeks, lips, skin, and even brow. In each of these venues, there are colors for Brunettes, Blondes, and Redheads. The funny thing is, I find myself feeling much like I did in kindergarten; I don’t want to color in the lines. I want to break the rules and try colors that weren’t necessarily designed for my hair color. I just might have to do it. I am not a redhead, but the colors for redheads are so enticing. I especially like the lipstick color Blowdry. It’s such a feminine color.

The collection also offers three all new brushes. Since they are brand new brushes, I am definitely intrigued and can’t wait to check them out more closely when released. The 214 Brush allegedly will become permanent at MAC stores.

I think the thing I especially like about this collection is how basic it is to match up colors with what works best with your look. For those of us who aren’t great at identifying what’s going to look best with our tone and hair color, we thank you MAC from the bottom of our hearts. There really are so many things offered in this collection I could probably go on forever, but I will spare you all and just list the full collection below.
