MAC: Give Me Liberty of London Collection

Release Date: March 11, 2010
US: March 11, 2010
International: April 2010

MAC Cosmetics Give Me Liberty of London Collection

The very latest in a series of famous M?A?Collaborations, it was only a matter of time before the demure-to-daring kaleidoscopic prints of Liberty of London coloured our world with Brit wit and bohemian chic. From the unstudied, Sienna Miller style of Spitalfields Market to the grit-and-glamour of Portobello Road, the swinging London girl has always been an unstoppable M·A·C makeup force! Spring 2010 insists on the ultimate flower fusion, with M?A?C joining forces with Liberty, creating cool Britannia compacts and Lipsticks, Eye Shadows, Powder, Blush, Nail Lacquers and, of course – blushing, bountiful, quite British accessories.

The first thing about this Liberty of London inspired collection that jumps out at you is the packaging. This packaging has a bird and floral theme that is black and white in some places with splashes of color thrown in.

Frankly Fresh lipglass is a true nude lip gloss that isn’t too brown or boring. It’s more of a peachy nude that is slightly pearly and a great color for spring. This pairs well with the Peachstock Satin lipstick that is also offered. Ever Hip Cremesheen is a pretty coral lipstick that has a lot of pink to it for those who can’t pull off peach.

For the eyes, there is the Give Me Liberty of London matte pink eyeshadow as well as a repromote of Dame’s Desire from the Dame Edna collection which is a very fun frosty medium violet shade that fits in well with this collection. One of the prettiest items is the Birds & Berries Veluxe Pearl shadow. It’s a deep blue green color that is more green than blue with a bit of frost. It should come as no surprise that this, like most everything here, is limited edition. You can get almost the same shade in nail polish form in the Blue India Nail Lacquer.

There are also two makeup bags that feature the Liberty of London design. They come in small and medium sizes and have a zipper closure with a big flower pull. A rather expensive white scarf decorated with large red, orange, blue and green flowers rounds out this collection.

The items in Liberty of London do a great job of evoking imagery of London with the names and shades. The packaging is sure to start conversations while still being distinctly MAC-like.

MAC: From Our Lips (Viva Glam VII) Collection

Release Date: February 25, 2010
International: March 2010
Australia: April 12, 2010

MAC Cosmetics From Our Lips (Viva Glam VII) Collection

Time to wham up the GLAM in VIVA GLAM! It’s a gaga-glamorous look at our abiding passion: The M·A·C AIDS Fund and the VIVA GLAM program are the heart and soul of M·A·C Cosmetics. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the sensational Cyndi Lauper and the electric Lady Gaga!

Every year MAC Cosmetics releases a Viva Glam lipstick and donates all of the money from the sales to AIDS research. This promotion has been going on since 1994 and have raised 150 million dollars for the MAC AIDS fund. This year two Viva Glam shades will be released for a limited run of one year. This year Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga are helping to promote the colors, and the shades are just as fun and loud as the two spokesmodels.

MAC Viva Glam Gaga is a blue-based bubblegum pink inspired by Lady Gaga. It’s similar to Saint Germain and Pink Nouveau. Don’t be turned off if cool tones don’t work for you – you could always layer a warmer gloss on top to help tone it down a bit and it’s for a great cause. Viva Glam Cyndi is a berry red color with a bit of an orangey tone to it. It goes on sheer, but with a liner like Half Red underneath, you can get a really beautiful bold red. Both colors are the lustre formulation which means they have a soft sheen and texture – and offer “buildable color” slash “don’t show up heavily unless you apply multiple layers”.

Inside the familiar black lipstick bullets you will find red lining and MAC is also written in red on the outside instead of the usual white. Sometimes MAC will release a lipglass or other items in addition to the Viva Glam lipsticks. This time around, MAC is also releasing two makeup bags to go with the lipsticks. The Viva Glam Cyndi Bag and the Viva Glam Gaga Bag will only be available at freestanding MAC stores in North America and online.

Lipstick ($14.00 US/$16.50 CDN)

* Viva Glam Cyndi – Burnt coral-red (Lustre)
* Viva Glam Gaga – Cool blue-pink (Lustre)

MAC: Hello Kitty Collection

Release date: February 10, 2009

Hello Kitty Mild, meet Hello Kitty Wild! Sweet and innocent or out on the prowl: when she’s good, she’s very good, but when she’s bad, she’s unmistakably M·A·C! The icon adored by millions around the world is causing a commotion with our special, limited-edition collection of colour, finishes, glitter and shine, and a fanciful the range of exclusive, It-Kitty accessories: The season’s most sought-after collectibles!


The ultra-luxe way to be pampered and playful! Announcing our limited-edition, glittering Swarovski crystal compacts, the collection privé of Kitty Kouture world. The ultimate in exclusivity, a sophisticated client’s social status is all but assured!


MAC Cosmetics has teamed up with Sanrio to make the new Hello Kitty collections. The icon known worldwide will now grace MAC counters starting February 10th, 2009. (I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait!!) Whether you are in the mood to be playful, or in the mood to indulge your naughtier side, this collection has something for everyone.

The collection is quite large and offers two sides. Mild Kitty (aka the Hello Kitty Collection) and Wild Kitty (aka the Hello Kitty Kouture Collection) are what they have been affectionately named. I love it. Who doesn’t have the urge to cuddle up and be soft and sweet from time to time, while still having it in them to really go wild while out on the prowl?

There is so much that this collection has to offer. The Kitty Kouture collection is a higher-end collection. The prices are higher, but the glamour has been kicked up a notch as well. Dazzleglass and Sheer Mystery Powder are both offered in this collection in different shades. For the everyday user who prefers something a little simpler, the Hello Kitty Color collection has it all. It offers colors ranging from pinks and lavenders to turquoises and greens.

While I would usually consider myself more of a Hello Kitty mild kind of girl, the Kitty wild definitely merits a closer look. The packaging alone is just so fantastic. It’s complete with jewels, bright colors, and the Hello Kitty icon… very flashy! There are also plenty of Hello Kitty accessories offered, some of which are only available at maccosmetics.com.

Release Date: November 4th, 2004

Thanks to MAC’s Sateen collection, we now have something to keep our makeup in that’s just as sassy as the makeup itself. MAC is releasing new accessory bags in three different sizes, petite, mid size, and max size.

The biggest one is large enough to be used as a purse. If you are looking for something small and sleek to keep your lipstick or touch up makeup in, than the petite size would be just the thing.

The bags are one solid color, with a black strip around the base and top where the zipper is at. The black strip has the MAC logo across it. There are several different colors to choose from, but not every size comes in every color. The largest accessory only comes in brown. The mid size comes in three colors, and the petite size is offered in five different colors. This is a limited edition so act fast if want one.
