MAC Illustrated Nude Lip Bag

MAC Illustrated Nude Lip Bag ($39.50) contains a full-sized Lipstick, Lipglass, and Lip Pencil, plus a medium-sized makeup bag. The value of the color products is $45, while the bag is very similar in size and material to the recently released Illustrated bags that retailed for $36, so the total (maximum) value is $81.  This set was actually quite interesting, because the lipstick and lipgloss aren’t similar in color, so they can be mixed in varying degrees to get several different variations on a warmer coral.

MAC Illustrated Sultry Eye Bag

MAC Illustrated Sultry Eye Bag ($46.50) includes three full-sized products: a Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo, Eye Kohl, and Haute & Naughty Mascara. The duo is worth $21, pencil is worth $16, and mascara is worth $20, so the total value of the set is $57, plus a full-sized makeup bag. The bag is actually the same size as the Illustrated bags that were released alone, and those retailed at $36, so the maximum possible value would be $93. The bag seemed to be made out of the same material as the Illustrated standalone bags. Keep in mind, Thunder and Rain came out in 2011, and the eyeliner and mascara are both part of the permanent range.

MAC Illustrated Brush Kits Reviews & Photos

MAC Illustrated Brush Kits ($49.50) are available in two selections, one for just face, one for face and eyes. Both kits come with a brush roll, which holds five brushes with a clear plastic flap that protects the brush heads. The brush roll itself is made out of a vinyl-like material. If you recently purchased any of the Illustrated bags, it’s made out of the same material as that. Smooth, slick plastic that’s not quite as shiny as vinyl. The brush roll has a 3/4″ wide black strap that ties the roll together. Each brush has a shiny black handle with a matte black ferrule.

MAC Illustrated Bags (2013) by Anja Kroencke and Indie 184 Review & Photos

MAC Illustrated Bags (2013 Edition) ($36.00 each) were designed by Anja Kroencke and Indie 184 (each with two bags). For more background, see the original press release. Each bag is 8″ wide and 6″ tall with a 1″ depth. They felt like vinyl/plastic on the outside, and still like vinyl but not as plastic-like on the interior, which is lined with a different pattern.
