MAC Attack February ’12 Recap


MAC Attack February ’12 Recap

With an unexpected early launch online, last minute release date changes, and a whole slew of products, here is a recap of all of the recent MAC collections. Shop MAC, Cook MAC is still slated for a February 9th release in-stores, but New York stores have released it on the 2nd (I would call to confirm with your local store); it will also be available online at retailers like Nordstrom, Macy’s, etc. closer to the in-store launch date. Vera has been moved up to February 9th for in-stores. Viva Glam is still listed as February 15th for in-stores. As always, the best thing to do is call your local store or counter and ask.

Shop MAC, Cook MAC is now available online at Nordstrom :)

Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush

Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “bright coral.” It’s more like a muted coral-orange with a warm, golden sheen. It’s a bit like MAC My Paradise but softer, less orange. Make Up For Ever #153 is pinker, more shimmery. MAC Marine Life is slightly pinker with less of a golden sheen.
