Have you checked out the MAC Collections database?

First, the MAC Collections Database has been updated through Venomous Villains!  Second, if you’re unfamiliar with the MAC Collections Database, it is a database we put together of past, current, and future MAC products to the best of our knowledge.  It is an archive of MAC collections as early as 1996 and continues through today.

  1. I love your database, I often use it to check details of Mac products I see on eBay or just look up certain products/collections. Same with the swatches/product photos. Thank you, you’re such a helpful person! :)

    hey christine, this is unrelated, but im having trouble with the foundation matrix. when i click on “cool” it takes me to shades with NW (meaning warm). NC= cool (yellow undertones), NW= warm (pink). so whats the dealio? I’m definitely cool (yellow) so why do you keep showing me NW shades? =(

    • Hi Jenny,

      NW = not warm or needs warm (because it’s cool)
      NC = not cool or needs cool (beause it’s warm)

      If you have yellow undertones, then you would be warm.

    Christine, I wanted to let you know that even though Merle Norman is not available everywhere OR is something that is known for their color, they just released some really pretty shades for their fall collection. I used to work for them & got the press release & they are great! Also, very unlike them. Not sure if you have one in your area…but in my opinion they are worth checking out. :)

    Hi Christine!
    This Database is just great – it makes it so much easier to find specific products and recall each collection. Thanks so much for all the hard work you do!!!

    Hi Christine, I was searching for one of my favorite e/s Issue in the base, it’s not there!

    Once again, Christine, you’ve outdone yourself and totally made my day brighter! I don’t know if it’s possible, but can you (in all your spare time–lol–I know that’s not a lot w/school & the BF & the dog :D) or could you also put your lip swatch photo JPG with the entry, like Sephora does with its online colors to the side of the product name, or is that me being too Martha Stewart-y/OCD? As it is, it’s still an A+ for me!!! Thanx for all you do!
