MAC Pret a Papier Collection

MAC Pret-a-Papier Collection for Summer 2010

U.S. Launch Date:  April 22nd, 2010

International Launch Date:  May 2010

Craft Paper Couture – an inspired idea cut like a pattern and whipped up into a frisky little “funny face” frock. Then, strip it back to its essence for Summer 2010 for a Pret-a-Papier colour collection. It was a Project Runway challenge of sorts, with paper as the source, the instigator of ideas, the beginning of something simply, basically beautiful. Lipstick, LipGlass, Eye Shadow, Paint Pot, Chromografic Pencil, Studio Fix Lash, Impeccable Brow Pencil, Sheertone and Mineralize Blushes, and Nail Lacquer in a seamless spectrum of parchment-to-vellum beiges, with an occasional, clever colour spill, coral among the most au courant.”

    They use Rachel Clark a lot, don’t they? After seeing the promo pics I thought the cases were going to be paper.

  2. Jennifer

    All the corals in a perfect world will be mine!!! I’ll have to narrow it down when swatches become available.
    I also am digging the idea of a green-grey eyeshadow…Grey’s look great on me…And even though I have green eyes, natural green hues still look great on me too!


  3. cmferrets

    ohh ohh i started jumping up and down with happyness when i saw the promo pic with speical LE packaging, but got bummed out when i saw the reg black packaging. what up with that? why would mac do a promo pic with this super pretty and original packaging and then opt out to use their basic black? i hope they change their minds bc thats just confusing and bad publicity.

  4. Miss_Silk

    whoa…when i saw the first promo pic.. I thought the products would be packaged in “Paper” or something haha

  5. Melissa (divinem)

    Wow, that model is really rockin’ that couture paper. Amazing pose!

  6. Beto Kylie

    I somehow wish the packaging were all nice, simple and beige…

  7. Diana

    yay for corals!!! i’ve been looking for a nice coral blush but they always have too much pink…i cant wait. i kinda wanted the paper packaging though =(
    its something different lol

  8. Vivi

    I was kind of hoping the packaging would look like the promo picture… y’know, recycling and all that. But its all very pretty- maybe a little too neutral, though.

  9. I’m exited about the Coral Crepe paint pot, I already have Groundwork. I don’t know yet if I want anything else, maybe the reddish lipstick. Have to see swatches of the eyeshadows before I decide. They are pretty close to the ones I already have.

  10. The colors are beautiful, I can’t wait to try them out.


  12. I want a coral lipstcick :( but i don’t know what 2 buy :(
    maybe Dressmaker,Dressmaker

  13. Kalee

    o0o Gazette Grey and Bamboo sounds niiice.

  14. Yet another delightfully boring collection. Skipping without a doubt.

  15. Ashley

    I’m probably just going to get the lip products. Christine, for limited edition MAC products, when it’s sold out for let’s say a couple of days after the collection came out, does that mean they won’t restock on it?

    • omo

      Sometimes they restock when it sells out and MOST TIMES they do not but just have to keep checking everyday to see if it got restocked. No one can really tell except MAC themselves on how it goes with restocking what when it sells out

  16. lordie lordie.. all that coral…. especially that paintpot, coral crepe.. oh please be matte, PLEASE be matte!

  17. I’m so into this collection. I hadn’t noticed it until now but in the promo photos the packaging of the collection is covered with paper and maybe that is what is drawing my eye so much. It’s the idea of the subtle colors paired with the washed out paper background that really makes the promos so eye catching. i wish the actual packages were similarly decorated!

  18. Amy

    Omigosh!! I can’t wait for the lipsticks and eyeshadows!!!

  19. Thanks for mentioning me the source Christine! I really do appreciated. :)

  20. fiaspice

    Pret-a-Papier lipglass looks awsome, can’t wait to see some swatches!

  21. Zinnia

    cant wait for swatches

  22. ocelot1

    i think i may only want the grary green e/s and maaaaybe the coral pp…

  23. Mara

    Coral Crepe and Instant Chic sure look tempting! So does Gazette Grey!

  24. Lisa Lee

  25. Kristen

    Is the packaging how it is in the promo pic?

  26. Dressmaker, dressmaker lipsticks will almost definately be coming home to live with me! I love it when MAC bring out new lustre lipsticks :) Tissue weight eyeshadow also sounds very appealing to me for some reason…

  27. Michelle

    I love neautral colors and corals, I am going to fall in love with this collection.

  28. emily

  29. ee

  41. kailey

    loving the coral paint pot and coral lip gloss!

  42. Leli

    i wish the packeging was like the one in the pics with the looks gorgious and especially the lipsticks will stand out.
    that of course won’t keep me from a couple of them!!

  43. edubltroubl

    does anyone know if memorabilia eyeshadow is similar to violet trance?

  44. Alabee

    Hey Christine-
    I love the look of the coral paintpot, but I’m a little confused as to what I could use it for! I have bare study, which I use as a base or by itself and I love it. I’m just wondering what the point of colored paint pots are if they are primarily bases? I don’t think a straight wash of coral all by itself would look so great on my NC15 skin, but it looks so gorgeous in its little glass pot. :3

    • You can use colored paint pots as bases, too :) You could also sheer it out for a softer color, rather than a lot of *pop.* Oh, maybe on cheeks, too!

  45. livnzoe

    i love the coral paint pot and the chromagraphic pencils!!

  46. i can’t wait for swatches!!

  47. WOOOOOW i can see this being VERY popular with the nude lovers!!!!

  48. emily

    I personally don’t get the freak out over the coral paint pot.
    nonetheless I may have to get a blush

  49. Vania Panahon

    Taupe and blonde impeccable brow pencils aren’t repromotes they’re in the mac permanent line! just bought one the other day.

  50. I am soooooooo excited for this collection….I seriously want everything!!!

  51. Emily

    I am ridiculously excited for gazette grey! and grey’s don’t even look good on me!

  52. Christine,
    Will you be able to have swatches before the release date?

  53. Val

    I wished the packaging for this collection looks like the ones in the poster but I know it’s not possible…sad….but i like some of the color though…

  54. Saira

    MAC MUA’s using the collection on models for a fashion segment on KTLA:

  55. marlene

    omg i pre oredered a few things and im excited for the concealer pencil or whatever. its nice but wondering how it will directly apply on the face. Overall i think the collection is only okay. the grey/green shadow is super pretty.. a little different

  56. Amy

    ooh i thought the packaging was going to be like in thw picture ??

  57. I want every piece of this collection!

  58. tpzhearts

    hii is there a dupe of gazette grey? i really want it but i’m too late since it’s LE =[

  59. zainub

    dressmaker dressmaker is such a pretty color, but i’m not too sure it will suit me? im fair – medium, pink lips but brown-ish lines on the sides.. i only wear lip products to enhance my complexion, at times im just too pale, as well as cover those brown lines.. i know it was limted but i can still get it.. do you think it would suit me?
