MAC Marilyn Monroe Lip Pencils ($16.50 for 0.05 oz.) sees the promotion of three permanent shades: Beet (vivid reddish-pink), Cherry (vivid bright bluish-red), and Redd (clearly red). They come in glossy black boxes and have a glossy black exterior on the actual pencil, as compared to the typical matte black packaging for both the box and pencil. MAC is charging more for this difference–these three shades can be purchased for $15.00 each normally, because of the glossy packaging, MAC is charging $16.50 each for these.
Just in time to spend those holiday gift cards, there are eight new and limited edition shades of MAC Lip Pencils ($14.00 for 0.05 oz.). These shades include: Embrace Me (vivid pinkish fuchsia), Entertain Me (clearly orange), Have to Have It (soft warm beige), Hip ‘n’ Happy (dirty blue-pink), Just My Type (intense warm brown), Just Wonderful (dirty mauve), Lasting Sensation (bright coral), and What Comes Naturally (pale peachy beige).
MAC Tour de Fabulous also includes eight limited edition lip pencils (same formula as the permanent lip pencils). Review is forthcoming! I will tell you that these were absolutely un-fun to swatch. I had to space them out over two days, because between the lipglasses and lip pencils, my lips felt ravaged, LOL! They’re slathered in lip balm and have forbade me to do further lip swatching for at least 24 hours.
MAC Quite Cute Lip Pencils ($13.00 for 0.05 oz.) include three permanent shades from the upcoming collection, which launches in-stores on April 7th. All three shades are actually repromotes from Too Fabulous. The shades are: Boldly Bare (dirty red brown), In Synch (bright yellow pink), and Naked (light neutral).
