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: Color Ready Collection

Release date April 2, 2009

MAC’s new Color Ready Collection is set to release on April 2, 2009. It offers a little old and a little new. Word on the street is that the majority of the lipstick, eyeshadow, liner, and brows are all re-promotes. But don’t tune out just yet, this collection still has some new and, what I think, are very exciting products.

This collection is introducing the Prep+ Prime products which include a line filler, skin refiner, and finishing powder. The Prep + Prime, as its name implies, helps prep and prime your face for the best possible makeup application. The liner goes on invisible, but it keeps your actual liner bold and in place for hours to come.

The skin refiner and finishing powder both also go on transparent, but help with the overall finish of your makeup. Allegedly, the skin refiner reduces pores and makes any wrinkles less noticeable. The finishing powder again helps to hold all of your makeup in place to keep you looking fresh all day long. I am especially intrigued by the Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone. If it does what it claims to do, I think I’ll be a customer for life.

While not everyone is overly excited about the re-promotes, I will say that the eye shadow color Bitter is simply spectacular. The golden green especially looks fantastic on people with any kind of green in their eyes. If you haven’t bought these colors before, they are definitely worth taking a closer look at. For you to be able to do so, we’ve listed the entire collection.

New Transparent Finishing Powder and Line Filler are our lightest yet, in fact invisible when applied, but their silky colourless polymers set and stabilize makeup instantly. The only way to start when you sit down in front of the mirror. Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone is your stay-put fit on skin that minimizes the appearance of pores without clogging, and visibly diminishes them over time.

Two Lipsticks, Eye Shadows, Penultimate Eye Liner and Eye Brows in an essential palette are a habit to happily acquire – Colour Ready is as basic as your 4-inch heel Louboutins.
