  • Impassioned Amped up fuschsia (Perm)

Eyeshadow ($14.50)

Eye Brows ($14.50)

Prep + Prime Line Filler ($19.50)
Prep + Prime Line Filler is a targeted deep wrinkle filler with long term skincare benefits that uses a unique technological breakthrough. Line Filler plumps and smoothes skin and drastically reduces the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines. A combination of Gatuline Expression™ and Argireline work together to relax the appearance of facial tension and expression lines, as well as boost the skin’s natural collagen production. Line Filler produces immediate results, but will also help eliminate the appearance of expression lines with continued use. The product is designed to be used under or over makeup and can also be used to touch up throughout the day.

Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone ($19.50)
Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone is a partial primer designed for use in the T-Zone. This lightweight, oil-free, soy-based emulsion instantly helps minimize visible pores while helping to control excess surface oil and shine. MAC employs High Tech Optics, an advanced technology powder and light diffusers to fill in lines. The result: an invisible, natural-looking, long-lasting matte finish that also helps keep pores clean, clear and unclogged. It mattifies and hides imperfections using advanced powders and microspheres while a Mannose-Phosphate blend gently exfoliates away dead cells giving the skin a more youthful look and silica particles absorb oil. In addition to immediately minimizing pore appearance and shine, 24% experience an increased luminosity and clarity of the skin. Additionally, clinical tests show that over time, the Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone reduces the appearance of clogged pores and shrinks the appearance of pores to nearly two-thirds of its original size.

Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder ($21.00)
Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder is not your usual translucent powder. With a virtually invisible feather-light, silky colorless application, the powder both reduces shine and maintains radiance due to a finely milled formula of corn starch, silica and micronized mica. Though it was designed to set and stabilize makeup, it can also be worn alone over moisturizer for a natural and radiant complexion. It was also a huge hit backstage during fashion week and was used at nearly every major show including Zac Posen, Badgley Mischka, Stella McCartney, Behnaz Sarafpour, Alberta Ferretti and Giles.

Brush ($34.00)

  • 129SH All-purpose for blush or face powder. This brush is particularly good for blush application. The fibers are soft and form a full, rounded shape.

  1. Nice! A lot of repromotes but still!

  2. Eleanor

    Too many repromotes. Does not grab me. When will they repromote Metal Rock. I need to have it! LOL

  3. NJ

    The finishing powder still looks very much like the set powder from the PRO store.

  4. sprut

    I’d like to see a swatch of impassioned and I would love for someone to try and recreate the eyes. Yeah not much excitement for this one…

  5. I know these are mostly repromotes but I really like the concept of this. I think collections like this just bring attention to perm colors that lose out the LE collections. This is nice. 😀

  6. Alysa

    Ommggg! I love the way the lips are done in this promo! Thanks for this Christine! Can you do a tutorial on those lips?

    Loveee your site. And all the giveaways! Its nice to see people giving back in such a hard time!

    I wonder how the skin refined zone prep and prime would work with my bare minerals.
    I can’t use normal primer because I have such oily acne prone skin.
    So I always end up reapplying every few hours, it’s a pain.
    I didn’t think I would want anything from this collection but now I am curious about that prep+prime!

    • Melody

      I have oily and acne prone skin as well I have to retouch my make up every 2 hours! It’s such a pain! :( I’m waiting to try the new prep and prime

  8. Tee

    The model’s makeup is great in the picture! I wish that blue in her crease was in the collection though.

  9. Valerie C.

    I’m oily too. I’m hoping to get Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone. I also have a good feeling about the Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder!! There’s nothing worse than getting your makeup just right….then oily skin wrecking it. These 2 items should be great for the warmer weather :o)

  10. I’m so getting this collection!! I want the Prep + Prime Refined Zone for my oily T-Zone, Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder so that my T-Zone can stay shine free and Show Orchid lipstick since it’s a Pro lip color and will wear it on special occassions!

  11. ReecesPieces

    the photo reminds me of christina aguilera’s latest album cover..?

  12. Liana

    Need SHow orchid in my collection!

  13. Those lipsticks and those eyeshadows have my nick written on it.

  14. Tanya

    I love the lips in the promo pic.

  15. Stefani

    I am definately looking forward to the Prep & Prime Finishing Powder

  16. Vness_12

    Those lips are SICK!!! I love it…

  17. Lena

    I might just check out the powder.

  18. i am going to get
    the lipsticks, the eyeshadows and maby the brush

  19. Flora

    The Prep+Primes are adding confusion to my daily face, which includes the 50spf primer. I like eliminating the need to put on sun screen separately but these seem to ADD to the daily steps – one in the pore and shiny areas and the other for the wrinkly areas… Am I the only confused one (as usual)?

  20. Yesterday I ordered the Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder and today I ordered the Prep + Prime Refined Zone to control my oily T-Zone during the day.
