MAC Cosmetics Colour Craft Collection: Colour

Every Artist must be daring if she wants to hone her Craft, and post-summer 2009 colour was conceived with that kind of creativity in mind.

A sensibility that surpasses expectations with inventive new Mineralize Eye Shadow pinwheel designs that combine new hues in modern, neo-geo ways; Lipglass gets a lift too, now with three shades swirled to create a one-of-a-kind marble finish delivered in a new, sleek vial. The small but seriously artful 109 and 226 Brushes are musts… add the newest colour sensations in complementary Lipstick, Mineralize Eye Shadow and Mineralize Blush, and any glamorous gallery will go gaga to give you your own one-woman show!

  1. No pictureas of MSFs? Anyway, I’m very disappointed because I was told at my local Mac counter that Color Craft would be coming out today in the UK, but I’ve just e-mailed them as it’s not on the website and it’s next Thursday. :( At least it’s not later than the US release, but I was all excited and planning to go shopping for it tomorrow. Poo. :(

  2. hi

    That stinks, Anitacska! I’m planning on getting Assemblage MES in the winter after all the fall collections have come out. I normally splurge on makeup at Christmas when I have all my ducks, gift cards and cash in a row. 😀

  3. hi

    Hey, how long do collections normally last? Since I want to get an MES at the end of December and this is coming out in a week, should the LE items from Colour Craft still be available at Christmas? I’ll have enough money by the end of October but it’s better to get my makeup fix during the holidays in one fell swoop.

    • I think the LE collections are usually around for 2 months or so. I doubt they’ll still be selling them in December.

    • 1-2 months. They do inventory periodically, and that’s when they send back a lot of stuff that hasn’t sold, IIRC. You might find some things lingering 2-3 months out, but I wouldn’t recommend waiting until October :(

  4. Kitson

    I think I’m gonna skip this one.

  5. Where are the MSF:s? =(

  6. I’m so in love with this collection :o)


  7. Ah, the lipsticks look fabulous! I’ve heard the blushes are sparkly this time around… which is kind of disappointing, but I want Daft Pink just for the name!

  8. NuNu

    I think all I’ll be getting will be Eccentricity and Hand-Finish. If the lipglass trios are not sheer (ahem Sugarsweet) then maybe Funky Fusion. I still haven’t caught on the whole MSF fad, will it make my face look like a glitter ball?

  9. margot

    I only want “made with love” lipstick, the rest of it is mineralize makeup and I find that line to be disapointing on me, just doesn’t work

  10. Alannah

    Those lipsticks are really boring for a collection called “Colour Craft”! I don’t know if I’ll be needing anything from this collection.

  11. ElleryAllison

    Anyone else notice that the 226 and 131 brushes are now online?
    I think they added it when they started the new brush focus thing.
    Just thought I would let you know in case anyone only wanted rbushes from the collection, they are already online.

  12. Tattoo Girl

    Yay!! I can pass up this collection! I’ll have more money for Graphic Garden! I’m really saving up for Love That Look and Makeup Art!!

  13. LoveCelebGossip

    OMGaw! The choices are killing me! I’m gonna go broke buying all the MAC I want.

  14. Natalia

    I am all about the Lipglass Electric Edge just because of the purplish color =) Im still a little iffy on the eyeshadows but will probrably get 1 and also on the blush but if its too glittery then il prob get either Madly Creative or Colour Crafted plus the 226 =D Cant wait for this collection to come out

  15. Brittany

    Does anyone know the name of the l/g on the second picture on the left hand side what it’s name is? It’s the more hot pink one! :) thanks

  16. Andrea

    I thought I’d like the blushes, but after reading that they might be sparkly, probably not!!! Interested to see how they swatch though!

  17. sara

    i can’t wait for this collection! and PLEASE make more wallpapers – that paint splatter one would be spectacular!

  18. binnie

    the blushes look good!

  19. arian.e

    OMG,cant wait!

  20. Zebo

    omg! I love all of this.. lipglasses, lipsticks, eyeshadows, and brushes for sure… I will be so broke when im done with this collection! :)

  21. s


    Why does it have to come out during my vital money saving summer though? ARGH. Wish it came out 6 months ago when it was ok for me to splurge.

    • Redhead (hi)

      I totally agree! I’m saving up for an 80 dollar cell phone this summer and will have to put my lemmings on hold at MAC until October.

  22. Hey everyone. This collection is online right now.

  23. Tracy

    Check your local Macys/MAC stores..Macys is selling it and I grabbed Made With Love, Trimming Talk, Odd Bits, Style Demon and the 226 brush :-)

  24. Shirley

    Does anyone know if Saks Fifth Avenue NYC store carries MAC?

  25. MC

    Collection online yesterday… in stores tomorrow…?

  26. SusyLovesMac

    Available online now! Yaii!!! :)))))

  27. Natasha

    This collection is already out in Canada. Christine, where’s your review?? lol

  28. Tattoo Girl

    I saw these today! They are really pretty. Even the lipglass is pretty. I managed to play with it all and walk away empty handed!! Go me!!

  29. CatMeow

    Not sure if i am the only one who feel indifference about the first promo photo. Not that i do not like. May be it is the styling, I just feel that it’s all over the place. Despite the color on the face, Are those handmade accessories supposed to represent the “craft”?

    how long do they have the colour craft collection in stores. because the only MAC store that I have in my area, is kind of far away, so I can’t go there too often. And I might be near a MAC store during the first week of August. Will all regular stores still have the collection by then?

    • It really depends on what sells out. Some things don’t sell out while lots of other things do. I think you should still find some items in store during August, since it’s only three weeks later — you just might not find everything!

  32. CatMeow

    Oh mi Gawd……..109 Small Contour brush is priced at 68$ in my country. >_<

    none refundable. none returnable.

    Be grateful you live in the U.S. !!!!

  33. Bethany

    Just letting you know that this collection will be released on July 27th in Australia. So excited!! 😀
