MAC By Request is a collection that’s voted on by the fans–there are 18 shades of lipstick, lipglass, and eyeshadow that MAC has listed for grabs, and your votes will determine the top three from each product type that will go on to be launched in an online exclusive, limited edition collection in August. Voting is open and closes on March 30th and users can vote once per product category per day. Not sure where to cast your vote? I’ve got the goods on the six lipglasses up for a comeback! 🙂 These just arrived from MAC – all the labels just say “sample” on the back, so I don’t know if these were a recent production or if these were from original runs. I’m thinking they’re probably from short runs – perhaps just to ensure the colors could still be made or have the recipes ready to go into production as soon as voting is over.
MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow Duos ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) now include: Fresh & Mint (white with silver and green veining/icy green), Joy & Laughter (dirty pink with hot pink and charcoal grey veining/icy pink), Love Connection (pale beige with gold and blue veining/warm gold), Sweet & Sour (dirty gold with green and deep blue veining/warm gold), and Water & Ice (creamy peach with blue and silver veining/sterling silver). These are now permanent (at least for an extended period of time, I haven’t been able to get a definite answer on how long).
MAC Mineralize Eyeshadows ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) now include: Blue Flame (mineralize black with blue pearl), Cinderfella (mineralize black with silver pearl), Gilt by Association (mineralize black with gold bronze pearl), Smutty Green (cream, warm green, black veining), and Young Punk (mineralize black with pinkish purple pearl). With the exception of Smutty Green, these were originally limited shades that have been brought back for a stint as permanent products. At least once a year, MAC rotates in new mineralize eyeshadows that become permanent for a time, and these are five of ten shades that are now available.
