Cool Eyes

MAC Cosmetics Trip II Collection

Hi all!  MAC has put the Trip Collection online for sale — this collection is not new.  It was originally released in Summer 2009.  It consists of permanent or previously released limited edition shades, but there are no new or exclusive shades to the collection.  It is available ONLINE ONLY at this time.  If I have swatches or a review available, you will find the collection that the shade was from originally linked.  Might be a good way to snag some old LE shades you missed out on if you’re newer to MAC :)

MAC Opulash Mascara for Summer 2010

MAC Opulash Mascara

MAC Opulash Mascara for Summer 2010

U.S. Launch Date: May 27, 2010
International Launch Date: June 2010

THE BIGGEST, BADDEST, BOUFFANT LASHES EVER ARE MAKING NOISE WITH THEIR SEXY SWEEP… the most extremevolumization ever seen! Just like going to your hairdresser for the boldest Barbarella blowout you’d ever dare to wear, Opulash creates aesthetic extremes when it gets going, for a dramatic end look. It’s all in the brush: enlarged and engineered to grab roots, lift, hold, replicate, exaggerate, and build-out like an architect intent on astounding with structural sleight-of-hand. Pick up the brush – see it volumize and curl – and you’ll know the difference. Large diameter backs you up, tapered front tip makes inner corners sleeker to reach. Needless to say, no clumping or Spider-Woman Syndrome. Superlative separation, sublime innovation: Everything a M•A•C Artist lives for!

Opulash ($13.00 U.S. / $15.50 CDN)

  • Bad, Bad Black Black
