MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick
MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick

Here’s a little sneak peek at MAC Mineralize Rich Lipsticks ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.), which are available online now and will make it to stores and counters next Thursday. All twelve shades are permanent (to North America), so you’ll have sometime to consider any purchases. I tested three for wear yesterday, and I’ll be testing several more today and tomorrow.

See more photos & swatches!

    Could you be the first one again to swatch all of new Mac lipsticks?Mpravoooo Christine!

  2. The kinda look like $22 lustres, I think I’ll skip but I’ll wait for the reviews anyway!

    • Bridgette

      I thought the price point was pretty steep for a MAC lipstick. But I’ll have to see how it performs before I know for sure…

  3. Madii

    Meh. PS- Christine, I have to type in mu name & email address everytime I want to comment. Before it was filled in automatically…

    • Hi Madii!

      What browser (and version) are you using? When did this start happening? Is it every time or have you come back after you’ve done it once and it’s back to being filled in automatically?


      • Yellowlantern

        This has been happening to me too.

        I’m using Chrome and the most recent version of Firefox and my android phone. Before my information auto filled for all of these. My info is missing every time I comment. It hasn’t auto filled my information in at least a week I think.

        • We are looking into it! Thanks!

          • Amaree

            Sounds like a browser issue. Chrome recently had an update (at least for me). So just check your settings in Chrome.

        • MERI

          same here with the disappearing info and used to see where the comment is waiting to be approved, thats not visible either, so I dont know if you will get this or not :(

          • We are working on it! Thank you!

            • Precious

              I experience the same issues whenever I use Firefox. I tried using Safari earlier, and everything was fine.

            • Hi all —

              You should have to enter your information one more time, and then it should keep your information! :) As long as you comment within two months, it will continue to keep your comments. If you’re still having issues in 24 hours (let’s give it time to refresh, in case anything is cached), please let us know! Thank you!

      • Mariella

        In the “misery loves company” brigade here. I too have this problem, as you know, Christine, and was just about to email you privately to reply to these same questions. I’ve also got Google Chrome and I use Mozilla Firefox. I think this started happening about a week ago. I think those of us who’ve been affected all date from around the same time. Another thing – now, even though my “love it/leave it” votes register, the buttons to choose remain active looking when I return. My info will remain filled in within a topic/thread, povided I don’t navigate away from that thread (so, if I hit “Post Comment” with this comment and then decided to post another comment in this discussion, I think the info will remain but if I move out of this discussion and come back or go to any other discussion, I have to manually fill in again). I hope this makes sense and is at least a bit helpful.

        • Mariella

          YAY, the auto-fill IS FIXED!!! Just wanted to let you know, Christine. Thanks for getting it all worked out – much appreciated.

    Excited to hear your thoughts Christine!

  6. oooh, some of these look really promising, can’t wait for the reviews!!!

  7. So glad you posted this! I was eyeing these last night on their website!

  8. Oh wow, I honestly can’t pick a favorite :-O So many beautiful shades!

  9. Carrie

    These look like some nice wearable every-day colors. If the formula is up to par, I might pick up one.

  10. JamieM

    Are you going to review the Marine Bright collection too from MAC?? I’m interested to see what its all about.

  11. Christy Cowart

    I’m a sucker for lip products! I saw this on your FB last night and have already ordered one to try! Lol, probably should have waited on the reviews…but like I said, I’m a pushover for lipsticks :-) Dang you MAC!! Here’s hoping they are amazing.

  12. Jay

    These look fantastic, Christine! LIke always, thank you so very much for the early swatches – you are a truly dedicated lady, and it shows! Can’t wait to see the reviews on these babies. Elegant Accent and Lady At Play seem like they’ll be right up my alley! :)

  13. chris

    Excited about these. I am really feeling a soft, lip for the Spring/Summer. Kinda like a Kerry Washington look. I am really interested to see the foundations.

  14. Sheila

    Those are so pretty!!!! Everyday diva looks really gorgeous!

  15. Julia Alkaseltzer

    Elegant Accent attracts me the most in this collection, but they are all gorgeous colors!

  16. Oh this looks exciting! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on them, the swatches look beautiful.

  17. Ohhh Glamour Era and Posh Tone look promising! I love the shade of Luxe Natural swatched, but I have a strong suspicion it would be too light for me

  18. Renee

    Hi Christine,

    Will you be reviewing the new MAC foundation as well? I have dry skin and am considering buying it, and would love to know your opinion.


  19. MERI

    Wow, I can name the duplicates in every one of these, gonna pass on the collection they really dropped the ball on this calling it Mineralize and using the past 3 collections colors from Glamour Daze, Apres Chic and Archie’s Girls, thats so blazing obvious :(
    and to increase the price from 16.50 to 22.00? No thank you

  20. Celine

    Lush Life looked really patchy. Luxe Natural, Posh Tone and Style Surge look gorgeous!

  21. Lizz

    I need MAC Dreaminess Mineralize Rich Lipstick, it looks so pretty and perfect for the spring and summer!

    • Casey

      I have that lipstick. I put nars Turkish delight on top. It feels really good on my lips like a lip balm and feels like a cloud. Worth every penny. I recommend it!

  22. yauris

    I know this is random but do you know if MAc will ever release the 226 Brush? please tell :)

  23. Carrieamm

    Are the limted edition ?

  24. vivaglamvi

    Christine would you happen to know if Back to MAC applies to this? Thanks.

    • Sorry, I don’t have any information on that! Because the B2M policy is, unfortunately, very inconsistently applied, it is best to contact your local store/counter.

  25. Rachel Marie

    They look nice but not impressive enough to spend $22 vs. their regular lipsticks, maybe that’s just me though

  26. Minh-Tam

    Hi Christine!

    Is it just me or does Grand Dame look like a dupe for my beloved Viva Glam Cyndi?!

  27. This formula better be good for the higher price

  28. Maia

    Lady at Play is calling my name! Excited to see the full length review

  29. elva

    I really can’t wait for them to come to Malaysia.

  30. Madeleine M.Preston

    Which one looks the most like NARS’s Fabala? Would you say there is one? Or none?I would like to switch if possible.
    Fabala has a cool undertone which is crucial in my case!,and a bit od shimmer which I don’t really care of.I like the color and the finish (what I don’t like is the price in Canada!).

  31. Veronica Lodge

    $22.00 Really? At this rate all Mac lippies will cost $25.00. Wet n Wild is looking amazballs right now!

  32. Gabby

    I’m looking forward to your review on these, Christine! (:

  33. feli

    Lovely , MAC is really hiking the prices I see. wow!

  34. All Out Gorgeous is gorgeous!

  35. Ellen

    Again, no browns, 2 oranges, 1 beige! I’ll have to try the oranges and the beige, hopefully they will be in stores soon. I remember when you reviewed the “Middle Eastern” shades. I couldn’t wait to see the brown shades in the store, and when I asked for them the SA’s did not know what I was talking about!! At least that won’t happen now. Can’t wait to see the foundation. I’ve been waiting for a new foundation for dry skin for a long time now. I even ordered the Pro compact in the emollient finish, but it has been backordered in NW20 for three months now, so I’m losing hope of ever seeing it. Maybe the new mineralize will be enough to satisfy my recent foundation lust! Thanks for the RAPID pics!!!

  36. what about the swatches for the asia released ones? the asia released ones look more interesting! 😀

  37. Isa

    Wow, wonderful colours!

  38. Sel

    They are more expensive because there is more product in the packaging.

  39. Sel

    They are more expensive because there is more product due to the different packaging.
