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)

    A couple of months ago I constantly read a lot about the wonders of the volcanic ash. Is it really that good?
    What does it do?
    Please tell me, I have saved up so much money so I can haul at mac, and I want to know if the volcanic ash is really worth buying. :)

    • In the simplest form, it is a scrub or an exfoliator. It can be used on face or body, but for the price/size, I’ve always stuck with it as a face product. It just feels AMAZING after you’ve used it. Your skin is super soft, glowy, and just feels healthier. It’s not too gritty or rough on the skin, and it’s never broken me out or agitated my skin in any way.

      I really do love it, and I will probably buy 5-10. No joke!

    This is a picture of the Bling Black Glimmerglass:

    It was used in the Donna Karan Fall 2009 fashion show. MAC was the makeup support for that show.

    im interested in this collection but i am so gonna have to check it out before i committ and decide to buy or not to buy

  11. Jess

    WOW! Finally MAC is partaking in the black lips trend. I grabbed up all of the dark mattenes from Cult of Cherry which I love wearing in the fall for dark vampy makeup. I don’t know if I have enough balls to wear black though! ack! I wonder how these black lipglasses compare to Lancome’s piha black lipgloss?> I think this collection will be a hit, but I hope I actually see girls wearing these colors! I live in Minneapolis and no one wears this bold of makeup and it sucks. Maybe I should move to NYC where girls actually partake in trends! lol I want to get the Volcanic ash exf and mask because of all the mad raves. I def want to get Baby Girl Goth, Blackfire and Young Punk. I love the idea of black with pink glitter accents.

  12. Mira

    Where can I see pictures???? I need pictures;)

  13. Lindsey

    this collection scares me, i like lighter colors

  14. mary

    I am gonna rock the black lipstick. I have really long jet black hair so hopefully it will work.

  15. jolenz

    Oh Yay!

    Definitely going to get:

    Volcanic Ash Exfoliator (maybe 2)
    Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask (maybe 2)
    Baby Goth Girl Nail Lacquer
    Blackfire Glimmerglass
    Young Punk & Gilt by Association mineralize eyeshadows.

    I may to take a close look at the eyeshadows and see how they look in person as I don’t really wear a whole lot of black on the lids. But I’m excited to get the rest.

  16. Lindsey

    DEFINITELY THE VOLCANIC ASH EXFOLIATOR! And, maybe the a couple eye shadows (if formulatio is ok), not too much, but then again i like neutrals and brights
