MAC: Rose Romance Collection

Release Date: April 23rd, 2009

Spring is in the air with MAC’s new collection, A Rose Romance, set to release April 23rd, 2009. If I didn’t have spring fever before, I do now. Seeing what this collection has to offer makes me want to put on my favorite sun dress and flip flops and have some fun with the colors and products included in this collection. There is a little bit of everything from eye colors and lipsticks, to nail polish and perfumes; where do I begin? With my favorites of course!

I am in love with the eye shadow Crème de Violet. It is a vibrant and rich purple with a hew of pink. I think this color will look good with any eye color, but I think it has the potential to really make blue eyes pop. I can’t decide which lipstick color I like the best because they all look so beautiful. I am slightly leaning towards the color A Rose Romance mainly because I love a soft pink lip in the spring time.

When MAC has so many different fun products to offer, my eyes are not always immediately drawn to the nail polish colors, but I really like the nail color with this collection. It’s called Love and Friendship and it is a creamy lavender. I think it is such a feminine color and I can’t wait to try it.

The one thing in the collection I am not sure about is the gel blush. It sounds interesting, but I am just not sold on the idea of a blush that is a gel. I suspect it will stay on a little longer than a powder would, but I think the bold red color might be a little much for me. I do trust MAC though so I am always open to trying new things. Another new thing I might try in this collection is the perfume. If it makes me long for spring as much as the colors of the collection do, I am sold. I have listed the complete collection below, but if we learn of any updates, we’ll be sure to let you know.

MAC: Sugar Sweet Collection

Release Date: March 19th, 2009

Sugar and spice and everything nice—MAC is delivering once again with its new collection titled Sugar Sweet. The collection is set to release on March 19, 2009. This collection is sweet for a few different reasons.

First of all, the collection has shadesticks! If you’ve never had the chance to use a MAC shadestick, you are going to want to try one now. A shadestick is a smooth a rich eye shadow in the sleek format of a stick. It brings a whole new dimension to eye shadow application. I love the shadestick and I can’t wait to try the Red Velvet color.

The collection line also includes regular eye shadow, lipstick, tricolor lipglass, mascara, nail polish, mineralize skinfinish, and false eyelashes. It really is a pretty complete collection of everything you would need to create a finished look. I think one of the most intriguing things in the collection is the tricolor lipglass.

This lipglass isn’t just one tone, it includes three different colors. My first thought was that three colors might be too much, but then I thought of how many times MAC has presented something that didn’t look fantastic; it is definitely a rare occasion. I will wait until it comes out to make a final decision, but for now, I will continue to be intrigued. Everything that is rumored to be in the collection is listed below. If we learn of anything else, we will be sure to update the list.

This spring, M·A·C is all temptation… frostings, finishes, fillings. Each of them whipped, creamy, deliciously stylish, as inspired by the world’s most popular sugar-sweet desserts. Never has a season looked so eat-me-up gorgeous!

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!

– MAC

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

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.

MAC: High Tea Collection

Release Date: December 26th, 2004

The MAC High Tea Collection is packed full of new products. You’ll be able to glam up from head to toe in a sophisticated way. It has a little of something from nail color to mascara and everything in between.

I am a big fan of soft pink colors and this collection has plenty of them. The frosty pinks offer a soft elegant look, but if you want to make a bolder statement for the winter, there are plenty of reds and greens with a bit of gold, silver, and bronze.

I don’t always bother investing in nail polish, but I just might have to try the new Eccentrici-tea simply because the name is beyond clever, even for MAC. I can’t wait to see what a pink nail polish with green pearl accents will look like.

This collection has a lot to offer, maybe even a little too much. I personally like it when the collection is just a little more focused, but maybe that’s just because the big ones end up hurting my wallet too much! Anyhow review to complete product list to pick your favorites.

MAC: Adorn Collection

Release Date: October 21th, 2004

Adorn yourself with beauty and be adored with MAC’s new collection Adorn. It is packed full of products, many of which are limited edition. The pigments, mascara, lip pencils, and the lipglass color Courting Rose are the only products that aren’t limited edition.

I’ve never tried any of MAC’s Shimmersouffles, but they look interesting. They are described as a light glittery powder to offer a sparkle effect. I think it would be a fun product to try for the winter time to give just a hint of shimmer to your holiday fun. Of all of the products offered, the one luckiest to carry the collection name is a shimmersouffle. That might say something. “Adorn” is light beige tan with glitter. I just might have to try it out.

I am not usually drawn to the nail lacquers, but there is something about “Violet Femme” that makes me want to try it. Maybe it is just the fact that the name is so powerful. Or maybe it is the purple amethyst color it promises. Either way, I think I am sufficiently sold on it.

There are five different eyeshadows offered in this collection. Honestly, none of them look that great to me. The colors are deep brownish red, bright purple, light tan, light greenish blue, and off-white. Maybe some of the colors will work well for some of you, but they aren’t great options for me.

Overall, there seems to be a little something to please everyone. Take a look at all of the products being offered and pick out your favorites.
