Cool Eyes

MAC Cosmetics Trip II Collection

Launch Date: April through August 2009 at Duty Free Shops (at Airports)

Launch Date (Updated): Now available as of March 23, 2010 online at MACCosmetics.com.

UPDATED/EDITED MARCH 23, 2010

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 Cosmetics | A Rose Romance

Launch Date: April 23rd, 2009 (North America), May 2009 (International).

Suggesting sonnets celebrated for centuries: Come into my garden, I would like my roses to see you!” poet Sir Richard Brinsley Sheridan once said, and what lady could resist such flattery? A tradition in haute-couture, an enduring Icon of Love and certainly the only flower acceptable to throw on stage at the Met or clench between teeth in a Buenos Aires tango salon, the rose remains beyond reproach. MAC creates a very modern Rose Romance, our lovely new colour collection for the summer season. Spring buds blush in fragrant new hues when Just A Pinch Gel Blush debuts; Fix + Rose refreshes; and our bring-back favourite fragrance, Creations Hue: Dejarose, whispers anew… But with great beauty there is always pass ion and peril… mind the thorns

Velvety petals of exotic orchid, lily, jasmine and peony are teased with a hint of crimson red raspberry and the gentle texture of pink pepper. The interplay of light and dark woods, weathered teak contrasting with patchouli, adds to the intensity, while hypnotic incense vapours and amber crystals lend a sense of intrigue and allure to this sensuous creation.

Fix+ Rose ($17.00 U.S. / $20.00 CDN)
An aqua-spritz of vitamins and minerals, infused with a Calm-the-Skin blend of green tea, Chamomile, Cucumber, topped off with the scent of 100% natural rose water. Adds radiance, finishes makeup.
