MAC Cosmetics Make-Up Art Cosmetics Fall ’09 As Seen By Marilyn Minter (Photographer)

Marilyn Minter, equally at home in art and fashion, has a penchant for iridescence that made her a perfect candidate for M·A·C’s glitter pigments, putting them to utterly seductive use. Minter’s erotic imagery zooms in on a succulently wet, red lip, a dappled, sequined eye, or a silverized stiletto splashing in the mud. The Whitney Biennial Artist says she’s “Never met a model who actually thinks she’s beautiful,” and that observation goes a long way to explain how she connects to what M·A·C wants to say about all-inclusiveness – we’re ALL beautiful sometimes. Pigments in Push the Edge and Copper or Gold Glitter have the power to make anyone feel like they WILL be seen – and desired.

    I love her photograph.

    • glitter princess

      ditto love sparkle! but probably try and get samples! ill nver finish the pigments :)anyone know a good site to buy in the uk ?/

  2. the glitters are gonna be so much fun to play with!<3

  3. Lindsey

    are the glitters eye safe?

    • *Kat_Mac*

      Technically no…but who ever listens to that?? I use them all the time for my eyes. Apparently they might cut your eye if they drop from your lid. People say its better to use them in lotions or nail polishes but that’s no fun!!

    • Redhead (hi)

      They’re pretty eye safe solong as you apply them to primed lids while that base is still wet so they don’t fall onto your eyeballs. If you want glittery mascara, apply it VERY carefully to the tops while looking down and to the underside (visible side) of lashes looking up while facing the floor while your mascara’s not wet, but still slick. That’s gravity at its best! 😉

    I definitely want Cocomotion pigment! And maybe push the edge? I don’t know. -__-

  5. Macaddict

    I already own Reflects Gold, Cocomotion pigments, & Heritage Rouge pigments. I don’t care for the copper/rusty colors of pigments/glitters.
    I really want:
    – Reflects Fuschia
    – Braash & Bold pigment
    – Push the Edge pigment
    – Clear Gloss Texture

  6. Kristen

    That photograph is amazing! I would love to have that, as well as a whole bunch of things from the collection!

  7. I’m not much into the glitter, but I’m probably going to end up with brash and bold, and push the edge though. They look like really great colors.

    • Mel

      same here! two of those colors look gorgeous..ah my list keeps adding up when i go through this collection!

  8. shatani

    what exactly is the clear gloss texture supposed to be for?

    • Leanne

      I think it is to mix with the glitters so they adhere to your lid. Not 100% sure though cause i’ve never bought one before, lol.

    • aradhana

      it’s also very good for when a dewy finish is desired…you can put a bit high on the cheekbones or if you want the glossy lid look…the gloss medium is not super glossy like a lipgloss.

  9. Macaddict

    Yep! That’s what it’s for.
    I believe that it’s also multi-purpose and can also be used as a clear lip gel to which one adds the glitters on the lips, as well as anywhere on the body where one wants to add the loose glitters/pigments.

    So can i only get the new pigments at a MAC pro store? and not at a MAC counter in Macys? and could i get them on

  11. rowan

    brash and bold looks beautiful! what an amazing colour! very punk.

  12. Nicole

    The Cocomotion pigment with the Reflects Copper glitter would be so pretty together!

  13. StrawberryKissesxox

    I think the two I like most is cocomotion and reflects Fushia.
    Would you use the gloss with the pigments then?

  14. kpenn

    It’s a shame that the glitters aren’t eye safe. I visited the counter today and they are all so tempting, but I just wouldn’t risk it. I’m not much of a glitter girl anywhere else on my face/body either, so they’d be kind of a waste to pick up.

    I managed to snag a sample of Heritage Rouge and Push the Edge today, and I bought Cocomotion because it was just too beautiful to resist. I know I’ll put it to very good use!

  15. Natalie

    anybody know when this will come out in the UK?

  16. Natalie

    thanks for your replies!
