MAC Art Supplies Collection

U.S. Launch Date: April 1st, 2010

Just as Art Supplies for Eyes invokes the vision, Art Supplies for Lips speaks to the ultimate in sensuality….Luscious lips drawn from innovative new Lipstain Markers and Pencils to use like a modern multi-media artist would – design and discover! Incorporating the concept of art tools into the world of M·A·C makeup, these pencils and markers create dramatically different lip looks. New Pro Longwear Lipstain Marker has the doodle-fun of a “pen,” but with sophisticated, light and long-wearing results. It’s all about artistic freedom!

A lightweight lip stain featuring the look and delivery of a colour marker.

Yes! I will be stocking at least two of each greasepaint stick and pearlglide eyeliners!!!
Just love this product so much.

Cant believe it will be available in other colors aside from black. It means I can wear it on my different day and different mood.

aksaiyo Avatar

same here! I love my greasepaints and all of these sounds so promising! going to get dirty and slick black for sure. I’ll drool at everything else as well!! XD

Brian Kelly Avatar

Am I the only one who was only excited by the name because I actually thought
this was going to be about actual art-related tools? I was so hoping MAC would stop with their Pro crap and just make the whole brand available by easier means…

Dusty Avatar

What’s Pro only in this collection??? Pro products are available to anyone – You can order them on-line and they are WILDLY good about returns! (trust me, I know from experience) LOL.

I was actually excited about this collection because of the name too though… And disapointed when I saw what they were offering. I was hoping for something more like the C-Shock collection.

I have a question though: Was anyone else as turned off as I was by the D-Squared greasepaint sticks??? They STINK! Smell like oil-based paint and I found that they would flake as they dried, causing little bits of D-Squared greasepaint droppings to fall into your eyes! (And yes, I returned them!) LOL.

Beto Kylie Avatar

I actually really like them! The only one I’m not that crazy about is the V one because it doesn’t look as purple as I’d like! However, the blue definitely is recognizable as blue and doesn’t get lost when paired with black.
I’ve only used them on the lower lash line, though.

cmferrets Avatar

im very interested to see what the pro lipstain markers are all about! and i am glad to see they are coming with greasepaint sticks. bbut i hate it when mac comes out with a bunch of colors in am item and makes them all LE. WHY? why not just make them permanent… ? they eventually probably will in the future! i wonder if the greasepaint stick colors are gonna be diff from the ones from style black?

Erica Avatar

aaw.. i seem to be the only one here not crazy about those greasepaint sticks! christine, what can you use them for? and i’m sadly probably gonna only pick up the black one and maybe the gunmetal or violet one 🙁

Anitacska Avatar

I’ve never used greasepaint sticks, but their name alone (grease – yuck!) puts me off. 😛 Are the eyeliners as good as the Urban Decay 24/7 ones?

I don’t know if I’ll get anything from this, the lipstain markers don’t excite me either.

jillo Avatar

i know how you feel . Grease paint in makeup school was nasty. ..clown makeup, ick. But I hear such good things about these sticks that I might just grab the green one.

alyssa Avatar

Charred Mauve
Full of flare
Point of view
Wow I did good lolz I thought I would have wanted more
Cnt wait for the grease sticks yay!

yajaira Avatar

Awww I wonder if those will be the only pearlglides for this year? I was kinda of hoping they’d bring rave out again (HG for me) and bankroll, which i didnt get….I wonder if undercurrent will be a regular teal color, it says blue teal and well, i know teal is a mix of blue and green Im just hoping it’s not more blue…idk, lol

cmferrets Avatar

yeah me too. i already have the black, violet and blue greasepaints from the style black collection, so how do these new ones diff from them?
i def want to get the grey, green, taupe, bronze, burgundy colors!

ak Avatar

They talked about the lipstain markers when they showed a picture of one of them in the British edition of Vogue in either the January or February issue but they didn’t go into any details and they didn’t say when they’d all be out.

kfm Avatar

I think I’ll need to grab a couple of the greasepaint sticks (greengrease, zinc zone, charred mauve and dirty all sound like they could look great). If I like the feel of the markers, I’d probably go for Runway Ripened.

kpenn09 Avatar

Surprisingly, I think that I will get more from this collection than Spring Colour Forecast, MAC to the Beach or Prete a Papier. All of the stains are sounding appealing, as are many of the liners and GPSs.

nadine Avatar

I am looking forward to the grease paint sticks. Not so sure @ the lip stains or the pearl glide liners? Does anyone know where I can view swatches??? Does anyone know where I can buy the Ripe Peach blush ombre or a good substitute? I’m an NC 50. It’s sold out everywhere and I missed it. I could kick myself.

Krys Avatar

hey…i missed ripe peach too :s but i heard a good dupe is peach nuance by estee lauder.. check it out on the website, its currently out of stock tho

Casey Avatar

I’m not big fan of multicolored liners so if I buy anything it’ll probably be the “Slick Black” Greasepaint Stick. I’ve never tried any of these..what are they like? =)

Budget Beauty Bombshell Avatar

I need to see swatches of the pearl glide liners. Does the shimmer transfer & show on the eye? Do they all have shimmer? If so, what color?

What about the wear, what’s it like?

Temptalia I expect all of this in your overall review report. LOL

I count on your awesomely detailed reviews to help me decide what to order. Luv ya girl!

Chester Avatar

This collection will cost me a fortune! But, who am I to complain when this is my chance to stock up on greasepaint sticks and colored liners? *insert innocent look at my bank account* 😉

Virginia Avatar

Do the greasepaint sticks crease? I’ve never had one of these. Can anyone describe the texture? Are they like shadesticks or paint pots?

Leea Avatar

I will definitely be getting the Zinc Zone and the Charred Mauve Greasepaint sticks,
and the Almost Noir and Undercurrent Pearlglide eyeliners.
They all look beautiful, but unfortunately I promised myself I wouldn’t go crazy on MAC collections this year : ) haha, not doing too well with that right now, but hey I can still work on it!

Alannah Avatar


I am confused by the photo, though, because it looks like there is a green pearlglide on the end, but the names/descriptions don’t include a green liner. I don’t see a black liner in the photo (and there’s one in the descriptions) so maybe there’s a mix-up? I would LOVE a new green liner, that’s the only reason I noticed!

Meg Avatar

I was hoping those were shadesticks and not greasepaints because the colors are lovely but the greasepaints just don’t work with my eyelids! The lipstains are very interesting though!

Alexis Avatar

Yay more greasesticks and pearlglide eyeliners. I love my Molasses and Fly by Bleu eyeliners and I would love to see all of these colors in person!

Norma Avatar

Oh thank god i don’t want anything from this one, well at least none of the grease paint sticks.

I bought some a while back from the Dsquared2 collection and i cant stand the way they smell, i wonder if it was just the ones i had boughten??

idk. =\

cmferrets Avatar

yeah the greasepaint sticks DO smell funky, mine do anyways from the style black collection. i thought i was the only one , i smelt it and what like “what the frike” but i love the colors so oh well! i hpe they do change the smell, cuz my eyes dont want to smell like a tire.

Dusty Avatar

That’s what I was talking about it my post on here! I HATE the way these smell! Anyone who paints would recognize the smell right away as oil-based paint. ICK!!!! Yuk Yuk Yuk!

I actually found the ones from DSquared to flake a bit too – I used the blue one on myself and in five minutes I was getting flakes of paint-stick IN MY EYE! It was most uncomfortable.

Kerri Avatar

Holy crap! I might need a second job for this one. I’ll wait for swatches on the lipstains but I know I’m getting all the greasepaints and pearlglides. I’m gonna cry because of how broke I’ll be but rolling around in all my new stuff will make me feel better though.

Lynniekae Avatar

I’m sold on the greasepaint and liners. Not a fan of lipstains, so at least with this collection, I won’t do too much damage.

Alex Avatar

I heart me some lip stains!!! wish there were pictures! This will be my b-day present to myself (04/07). I play up my lips more so the eye stuff doesnt grab me.

aradhana Avatar

the greasepaint sticks….looking forward to dirty, and maybe the black one. the black from dsquared2 turns a bit blue on me…

does anyone know what the model in the pic is wearing on her eyes?

aradhana Avatar

they’re a bit of a cross between the two…they’re a lot softer than shadesticks — i find they go on smoother. they can be used as liners or lid colour/base.

Chiara Avatar

Love the pearglide pencils! And I’m glad they are repromoting greasepaints, I didn’t get one when they first came out but after hearing so many good reviews, I’ll probably buy one.

mars Avatar

I am buying every single thing from this collection. Greasepaint sticks I love as an eyeshadow (work quickly using a 242 brush directly from the tip). I didn’t know for months about the sharpener hidden in the base of them and now they’re my favorite to line with. I’ve tried the lip markers and they are amazing. A perfect stain that stayed put all day long and never faded or feathered 7 it doesn’t have any texture to it!!

Lisa Lee Avatar

OMG!! i cannot wait for this to comeout!! im sooo excited to try out the purple , green, blue, brown, grey..OMG! such a good collection!!!

Tonia I. Avatar

Just got my hands on these new grease paint sticks today… The packaging are not the same as in pictures. The color indications are only on the ending tip of the pen (previous version of shadestick?), not the whole as displayed here.

brandi Avatar

from some of the preview reviews ive seen on youtube the lipstain markers aren’t to die for they are just whatever… the greasepaint sticks and liners seem very promising!!! i am surely getting the liners because i love pearlglides!!! mac should make these permanent!!! but are these different from the original pearlglides.. i was jw because they say pearlglide intense liners and i was wondering if there was a difference and what that difference was

Ally_D Avatar

I swatched a couple of the liners in store today and Almost Noir looks like UD’s 1999 and Black Line reminded me of UD’s Stash. Granted they aren’t *exactly* the same but they are similar enough for me to pass on them because I already have the UD liners.

That just means I spend my money on other MAC products instead though so I’m not really saving anything – although in my head I am being very prudent 😀

Jenny Avatar

The only thing I’m looking forward to checking out are the lipstain markers. Greasepaints are pretty sh*tty and overrated and everyone already has about ten thousand eye liners already.
