MAC Pret-a-Papier Collection: Eyeshadows

MAC Pret a Papier Collection

It’s funny, despite five eyeshadows being launched in this collection, none of them really spoke to me. I also got more of a fall collection vibe off of them, even though we’re heading right into summer. To be honest, I don’t think any of these are really must-haves.

Gazette Gray had a lot of potential, but it’s just so sheer–would have been great if it had been a veluxe pearl finish! Cut to Fit is something that’s close enough to other shades I’ve seen before. Tissue Weight is pretty on its own, but you may already own something similar.

MAC Pret-a-Papier Collection: Blush & Mineralize Blush

MAC Pret a Papier Collection

For whatever reason, I must have spaced, because I did not realize that Pret-a-Papier was such a large collection.  I kept thinking it was a dinky little collection, but it’s a full collection.  It includes two sheertone blushes and one mineralize blush duo.

Instant Chic is the most unique of the three blushes, despite not having the best color pay off (it is a sheertone, though).  It’s coral enough to be perfect for summer and add some brightness to cheeks, but it’s not so warm that only warmer skin tones will like it.  I do think it’s a better shade for light to medium skin tones, and if you’re of a deeper skin tone, you may want to swatch it in person first.

MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: My Reds & Pinks — Limited Edition (2010)

MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: My Reds & Pinks — Limited Edition

Can you guess which shade is which? It’s not easy! You’ll find the answers behind the cut, under the second photo of the palette! :)  I took close-ups, but I wasn’t satisfied with the majority of them, so I’ll have to do those at another time.  Consider it on the to-do list but a not-so-urgent item…  We’ll do oranges and golds next!

Some clues…

  • All shades are limited edition (I have all permanent shades in separate palettes)
  • 95% of my limited edition eyeshadows are from 2004-2010, with an emphasis on 2009-2010
  • There may be duplicates of some limited edition shades (but they’ll be next to each other)
  • Square-shaped shades are from holiday palettes

What’s inside the palette…

MAC Superglass Collection for Summer 2010

MAC Superglass Collection

U.S. Launch Date: May 6th, 2010
International Launch Date: July 2010

Shattered, decimated, blinded by a fantastic, intergalactic lip light! Just when you thought Dazzleglass was the best-of bright, along comes Superglass, with secret, snowflake-shaped helicone pearls sparkling in three different facets for triple the dazzle! Lips have gone big bang, explosively dimensional, a rare eclipse! Gloss feels slick and sleek on application with no draggy speed bumps, not a hint of grit. A light aroma of vanilla enhances kissability. Extreme innovation that’s a good reflection on MAC and the seductress lucky enough to strike upon it.
