MAC Style Black Collection

U.S. Launch Date: September 24th, 2009
International Launch Date: October 2009

From “Back to Black” beehive and eyeliner to Steven “80s” Sprouse-in-the-House kohl and fringe to Gareth Pugh London New Goth, Black is simply beyond. Lips, nails, eyes there’s no more dramatic way to declare your desire, separate your sensibility, celebrate your magnetism. They WILL surrender to a Blackfire Glimmerglass, Rapidblack Penultimate Eyeliner, a slash of Greasepaint Stick, and the hot scratch of Baby Goth Girl Nail Lacquer. Style Black is a way of life, a shadowy and mysterious figure of fantasy, even for just one dark and dangerous night.

Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask ($19.50 U.S> / $23.50 CDN)

VATM contains natural volcanic ash to cleanse and treat the skin. The mineral-rich ash works with oat kernel flour to help absorb excess oil from the skin’s surface. A combo of natural oils (lavendar, sunflower, safflower seed and evening primrose) help lubricate the skin, leaving it feeling soft and moisturized. It helps to even out the skin’s texture and leaves the skin feeling smooth and perfected for makeup application. The unique formula glides effortlessly onto the skin, allowing ample playtime. The mask heats up on the skin when used with water and removes impurities from the surface, leaving skin looking radiant and fresh. Use 1-3 times a week. Derm-tested, non-acnegenic and for all skins. 3.4oz (Limited Edition)

  1. AA

    I don’t own any black lipsticks, and I can’t wait for this one!

  2. Reese

    I’m really excited for this collection :) I love black! And I am so glad the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator will be back. I only have a little bit left and I’ve been holding on to it for dear life. lol

  3. This collection is going to make me a poor woman. Other than the CCBs and paint stick, I want it all.

  4. hi

    Since I’m ghostly pale this collection doesn’t really interest me, but I really want Blue Flame 😀 Wait, wasn’t Blue Flame from the Cool Heat collection?

    • Amber

      Yup Blue Flame from Cool Heat. Kinda strange because here they describe it black with blue pearl and back during the Cool Heat Collection they described it as deep navy blue……..

      • Sierra

        they are different blue flames. the original was just a (matte?) blue e/s, the one in this collection is a mineralized shadow w/ swirly black & blue.

        • Jane

          blue flame was a veluxe pearl. its lovely… its the eyeshadow that ‘deep truth’ wishes it were

    • Dawn

      I am pale too but Blk looks hott. It definitely takes a step back to get use to it but still amazing. I got to play with the greasepaint stick and gave myself that total grunge look and i loved it as well.

      The mineralized shadows are great. they are so much more sparkley than Black Tied and Beauty Marked.

      As for the Volcanic ash exfoliater stuff. I tried it on my hand and loved it. But probably best used in the shower.

  5. Christina

    wow, i’ll have to test this out in the store. it’s kinda awesome, but i don’t know if the black would suit my extremely pale skin, without looking gothic.

    • Of course it will look gothic- is there any other way to wear black lips :) I know I don’t need any of this line, but I sure do want it!

    • I’m very pale, too, and I’ve done blackish (black liner over the entire lip with a very dark gloss over it) lips before, and if I use enough pink-y blush it has a really cool effect, not gothic-y at all, especially if you do light or bright eye makeup with it.

  6. Tania

    I dunno about black lips but those eye shadows and the Baby Goth Girl nail polish is sounding serious. Will wait to see more pictures!

  7. Nathalie

    Interesting for the eyes as I’m a lover of black smokey and black on the eyes! Also, it’ll be esthetically extremelly interesting to see all the black lipsticks and lip products. Lots of girls will buy this, I don’t doubt it but I wonder how many of them will actually wear the black lips in the streets (beside the goth girls who always did).

  8. Lulckathy

    black lipstick and lipglasses?? *faint*

    thanks for the info!!

  9. milaxx

    I love black. probably get the entire collection, including nail polish and I rarely buy MAC’s polish

  10. Loverly

    I guess I’m the only one not really interested in black l/s and l/g…………..

  11. omg so it IS coming out.. about to start to start saving up now bc i’m going to get everything

  12. Nic15

    I just received my F&F haul shipment & then you hit us with these back-to-back fall launch posts. I love you Christine, but my brain hurts (in a good way of course!!) What’s a makeup addict to do?!?! I LOVE IT :):):)

  13. Andrea

    Oh my gosh I will so have to try the Thermal Mask and stock up on the Volcanic Ash exfoliator!!!

  14. Wow, I can’t wait to get Blackfire.
    I love this whole release concept!

  15. The next season of MAC releases has got me so excited… finally they’re not churning out the same rehashed stuff. And Night Violet is back 😀 I need to get Black Knight just for the name.

  16. BINNIE

    THE Volcanic Ash Exfoliator& MASK SOUNDS EXCITING! x

  17. Volcanic Ash Exfoliator! YES!

  18. Wilcoa

    Love the idea! Think I’d be picking up Bat Black CCB since I’ve never seen it and a glimmerglass. I was really stoked for the eyeshadows, but I’m sadly allergic to mineral makeup, so this is a real big disappointment for me :(

  19. Kate M.

    Wow all the Fall and Winter Collections look so exciting!! And I can’t believe Volcanic Ash Exfoliator is coming back!!!! Sooooo excited!!!

    Thanks for posting these!!

  20. Faheema

    Volcanic Ash :O… Does anyone know how much this cost in pounds last time it was out?

  21. I can’t wait for this! I would never use a black lipstick, but i am willing to get it anyways!

    Mac has me really excited for their fall & winter collections… Yay :)

  22. Rebecca

    It is amazing how black lippies products are becoming more mainstream… This seems like a darker, noir collection after the success of last years dark Cult of Cherry hits.

  23. Hmmm, black on the lips is really not my thing, but I’m excited to see the mineralize shadows.

  24. i am intrigued by the black glosses and nail lacquers. def getting at least one of the black gloss for collection and use.

  25. DevilishDoll

    I need
    Black Knight Cremesheen
    Blackfire Glimmerglass
    Young Punk Mineralize Eye Shadow
    Blue Flame Mineralize Eye Shadow
    Baby Goth Girl Nail Polish

    I usually say I want nail polishes but never get them cause of the price…but black with pink and purple shimmer is like a dream come true for me.

  26. Ali

    Oooooooooh! Can’t wait to see the pics and reviews of the products! I swear MAC is making me broke… Def going to have to pick up some of the glimmerglasses and nail polish or two!

  27. Meg

    haha i’m not gonna lie, this collection is a bit ridiculous…but i have to own a black lipgloss….seriously

  28. Tekoa

    Return of the Volcanic Ash!!!!!

  29. Lesleykat

    I will literally be buying this entire collection. I can’t wait!!!!!

  30. lovepotion18

    not interested in the all black color of this collection. although, two of the mineralize e/s’s sound interesting (young punk and blue flame) and the volcanic Ash exfoliator.

  31. Evelyn

    i love the idea of all the lips products, will have 2 check out in person to be sure ofcourse

  32. *neena*

    I am really looking forward to the Volcanic Ash Exfoliater. I missed out on it the first time. I’m hoping they make it permanent this time.

  33. Oh wow, I was scanning the list and thought meh…another collection to pass on. Until I saw the words “VOLCANIC ASH EXFOLIATOR” Yay! I still have quite a bit left but at least I know I don’t have to skimp anymore. I can’t wait to pick up the thermal mask as well.

  34. Brie

    This collection could not be LESS for me unless it also including a gold eye shadow and orange lipstick rofl. I can safely say pass on all of it – no thanks on black lips and dark eyeshadow! Another bullet dodged haha!

  35. Bananarchy

    Will be getting all of this except the creme stick. Wow glad I get a discount!

  36. Ms Trendy

    the only thing that interests me is the volcanic ash skin products… the rest is too vampy and goth like for my liking. maybe the eyeshadows but thats the only other thing that sparks my interest.

  37. Luci

    After reviewing most of the upcoming MAC collections, the goth in me is ecstatic. My wallet, however, is not.

  38. Leven

    Mac doesnt care about our wallets! Releasing this and the Fall Trend collection in the same month is just mean lol

  39. I know myself, and I know that I’ll get the black lip products just to have them in my collection. I doubt I’ll ever wear them (Halloween maybe?). I struggle with dark reds! So difficult to keep up with all day! But I’m really excited about the eyes and Volcanic Ash of course!

  40. jess

    So freaking stoked for this collection! I need the volcanic ash exfoliator and mask! and the new nail polishes and maybe the glimmerglass and a mattene. Maybe an eyeshadow too! lol love it! its about time they did black–now there going all out!

  41. Christy

    Eeek! I want it all, except for the penultimate eyeliner, smolder liner and brush.

  42. Nic

    I’ll definitely be picking up Black Knight. I’d prefer it were a matte, but cremesheen’ll do. I’ll probably skip the mattenes. I bought 3 of the ones from Cult of Cherry, but I rarely use them (even thought I love the colors) because I don’t like the formula. The glimmerglasses sound interesting, though. I’ll probably get at least one.

  43. Bettina

    God those eyeshadows sound amazing…..

  44. Sabrina

    I knew there was a reason I didn’t buy carbon!!! This sounds so cool

  45. Renee

    I’m sooooo getting volcanic ash!

  46. Torrie

    I’m going to have to try that Volcanic Ash Exfoliator and Baby Goth Girl Nail Lacquer.
    This collection sounds really cool!

  47. I don’t want the lipsticks og lipsloss, but the eyeshadows, liners and nailcolours, sounds good 😀

  48. margot

    I’d like the grease paintstick, one or two eyeshadows and of course the exfoliator and the mask :)

  49. Guinevere

    Finalllllllllllllyyy!!!!!! I’m so excited!!! I need almost everything of this collection

  50. omgogoggomgomg Volcanic Ash Exfoliator!! CCBs *faints*

  51. Cole

    I wish I was paler for this collection, the contrast between pale skin and dark eyes/lips would be beautiful for black and white pictures. I love buying odd makeup for the sake of high glamour shots. <3

  52. Rada

    The 214! woohoo! I missed it from the BBR collection.

  53. Im going to become a hooker just to pay for all of this.

  54. Ohhhh I’m actually looking forward to this collection! Can’t wait to see it!

  55. Manda

    these shadows sound amazing! i cant even deal right now

  56. Very interested to see pictures for this collection.

  57. Connie K

    I like this trend. I think Black lips will be fun!! BTW, I tried to click on the “source” and it took me to a discontinued website?

  58. GLIMMERGLASS! this is the only thing I’m thinking of compared to all other collections… black looks good on any complextion! 😀

  59. Amanda

    OMG! Are you freaking kidding me?!!! *screams*

  60. Tasha

    i’m quite intrigued. I’d like to try a lg or two. maybe an e/s as well.
    strict budget so i can’t really go all out.

  61. Cindy

    I literally wan’t everythimg in this collection. I’m a dark eyes and dark lippie kinda gal. I can’t wait!!! Love love love.

  62. Tattoo Girl

    HMMM.. to bad all the e/s are mineral. I love black eyeshadow! I’ll probably skip the nail polish cuz I mix my own but the glimmerglass is callin my name!!

  63. For kit purposes, I’ll get every bit of the makeup and personally, I’ll be stocking up on the VAE and the mask.

  64. Zoila

    every goth girl’s dream haha… i hope these products are wearable! i don’t mind if theyre black, just as long as theyre adjusted to a wearable black.. if that makes sense… by then my pale skin will be a little more tan from the summer, so i’m not too scared :)

  65. Celeste

    well one reason they are really even introducing the black lipstick is not necessarily to wear it by itself but to actually mix it with other lip sticks to create awesome shades of that particular one. like dubonnet with it, or hug me, or even something like russian red, or girl about town. its all about getting creative =)

    Im super flippin excited about the grease paint stick. =D it has AWESOME staying power. water resistant, can withstand pool junkies =)

    the mineralize shadows hurt my eyes, i cant wear them =( but ill get them for shoots.

    the displays are freaking GORGEOUS!!!!!

  66. maclove1

    black lipstick o.o why? hmmm well i have to waite and see this collection but so far im iffy .idk

  67. sonjiya

    they couldn’t just let me keep my money for once! 😛 i can’t wait to buy it alllll

  68. Fairy

    Once again MAC is trying to ruin me!! I love black & this is the ultimate collection =)

  69. Sass

    Can’t wait to see the pics for this one. Black is my color!

  70. I’m thinking Bling Black would look amazing over O lipstick!

    I can’t wait for the solid black lipstick. It’s so hard to find a true black lipstick that’s actually of good quality. plus it’s a cremesheen, my favorite finish!

  71. Audrey

    I wish Feline Kohl Power was in this collection! :0(

  72. Bettina

    I’m curious to see swatches or pictures.

  73. What exactly is the grease paint stick?
    Is it only for the eyes like a shadestick, or is it multi-purpose?

  74. Kim

    I don’t know about the black lips, but everything else, the eye shadow, cream bases, nail polish are all so enticing! I need to decide between pink and gold pearls. I love both! Glad it’s out in October internationally, that way I have time to save up.

  75. Zsofi

    i am still not decided which one should i get: the ash exfoliator the mask?

    pls help me Christine :-)

    • Zsofi

      sorry i wrote it wrong…
      so the exfoliator OR the mask???

      if i only want to buy one,which should it be?

    • I haven’t tried the mask yet, but I know KNOW the Exfoliator is AMAZINGGGGG.

      • Zsofi

        i know You are a fan of the exfoliator 😀
        last time i wanted to get it,it just went dc, so this time i try to save money for it,which will ba hard,since i want so many eyeshadows from different brands :-DDDD

  76. sher

    this collection is mine!! i must have everything!

  77. Amanda

    OMG!!! VAE and a mask!! Holy smokes… so stocking up on the VAE and will probably grab a few of the masks (I’m such a whore for masks). I’m so happy this is coming out again I love it to death.

  78. Tattoo Girl

    I saw these swatched on paper today. the greasestick is awesome. it has a purple shine to it. The glimmerglasses and sheer with glitter in them. very pretty. The eyeshadows are really cool especially cinderfella. Hard to describe but if you like black you are gonna love these!!

  79. joe

    Just wait! this stuff is awesome,I was impressed with everything from this collection and got to play today!

  80. Mel

    Pardon the french, buuut.

    Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck. I’m going to be so disgustingly broke. And I’m pretty much drooling right now. HELLO, FALL. <33333333333333

  81. Kina

    Ugh.. I don’t like mineralize eyeshadows. But I’ll definately get Black Knight l/s, the ccbs, and maybe Baby Goth Girl n/l. But what is a Grease Paintstick?? Is it like a shadestick?

  82. niknik

    Wow finally a collection on the darkside.
    I will SLEEP outside of my MAC store the night before just so I can get my hands on VAE… haha.

  83. Saira

    I think this is a photo of the campaign images for the All Black Collection:

  84. Ashlee

    Im SOOOOOOOOOOO Excitted!!!

    I’ll Be getting Bling Black & Black fire Glimmerglass
    Young Punk MES
    Black Grease Stick

    & maybe Bat Black CCB

    I alredy have Night Violet , its awsome really vampy.

  85. Sarah

    This is the collection every MAC loving goth girl has been waiting for, I want almost all of it, and I’ve never said that about a collection before.

  86. OHMYGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD -hyperventilates, faints-

  87. ORALIA


  88. Meaghan

    this collection looks pretty exciting. I already own Night Violet, so that’s one thing to knock off the list. I wonder if the glimmerglasses are anything like the Kat Von D sheer black lipgloss, because I love that.

  89. claudia

    whoa! i will have to check this out in the store…black m/u intimidates me! i definitely should get the volcanic ash products though, see what the fuss is all about! :)

  90. Patricia

    Sweet! I have got to try the lipglosses. They really need a black dazzleglass.

  91. kiki

    looks so darn awesome.
    whats a grease paint stick?
    you think it’s like a PRO paint stick??

  92. Gracie

    Woah, i’m not so sure about black lips and faces, LOL. Not so much my style. But I may get one of the black eyeshadows, they sound pretty unique, and I really don’t have a good black eyeshadow. Also possibly a nail polish….and a volcano ash exfoliator? Sweet! That sounds awesome, I may check that out…but i don’t think I’m gonna go crazy with this collection.

  93. Saira

    Is the Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask going to be $19.50 like the scrub or will it be more? Trying to budget things out for my haul. If anybody knows please pass it on. thanx

  94. daniela

    hey christine arent you exited about the volcanic ash exfoliator repromote??

  95. JO

    Very intriqued by this collection but black scares me lol. Not sure whether i should skip or b brave and order some and see if i can find a way 2 use them….

  96. Phoenix

    i really want to se the facecharts thy cmeup with for this collection 😀

  97. Phoenix

    pictures! 😀

  98. Karla

    I agree. I love black everything… I’m saving my money starting now for this collection. I was going to get things from color craft but I think it can wait. I think I’ll like this collection much better :)

  99. rowan

    i want young punk and baby goth girl so badly! black with purple/pink shimmer…sounds gorgeous
