MAC DSquared Collection for Fall 2009 - Preview Photos

MAC DSquared² Collection

U.S. Launch Date: October 12th, 2009
International Launch Date: November 2009

Every season the fashion crowd is up and on the run, crazy for the fierce and sexy fun we’ve come to expect from designers Dan and Dean Caten, the Canadian twins who know how to pack a punch and throw a party! With their haute hi-jinx and body-beautiful clothes for boys and girls, a collaboration with MAC simply could NOT be avoided! “DSquared2 and MAC are on the same trip!” says Dan. This collection brings us to the Ziegfield Follies by way of Grey Gardens, a bit disheveled, a little Girl Interrupted, both dramatically hip and dangerously sexy.

It starts with a strong, sooty, blackest-ever wild-child eye…a new Greasepaint Stick also in blue and violet versions, and Pro Gloss to create it. Neutral and perfected skin will get more drama with highlighting and low lighting from Sculpt and Shape Powders and the 165 Tapered Cheek/Highlight Brush all the better to achieve it. And finally, the totally nude Pro Lip Erase does its stuff, followed by a light Lipstick and Lip Conditioner to put the lilt and lift back in…. But the cynosure of this season’s scintillating collaboration is the daring, dramatic slightly demented DSquared2 eye. Have fun with it!

i’m actually thinking a creamier version of shadesticks..since we all know that shadesticks are like the most annoying base since you have to sort of heat them up so they are not so dry.! lol…

A grease paint stick is like a shade stick but has more of a wet look on the skin i really like them personal preference really hope this helps 🙂 x

I am most excited about the paint sticks…I think they are multipurpose and can be uesd almost anywhere….sorta like the paint sticks at MAC pro, but these are in a pencil format? I also want the shape/scult duos because its so hard to run through those and this way there is less to keep in my makeup stash!

I am jusy wondering will the grease sticks crease? Are they like shadesticks but with a shiny look? They look cool but I have to check these out in person.

Am loving this! I’m getting the paint sticks, a shape/sculpt, the 165 brush, both lippies and about 7 Feline eyeliners. <3 <3 <3 that eyeliner!!!

this brush is amazing i got mines at the start of the year when it was realsed with BBR and i love using this for cheeck highlight/ using with loose powder under the eyes or around the nose defo worth gettign it should be perm brush X

I’m so excited for this collection! I’ll be picking up a Feline and 165 brush for sure. Maybe a greasepaint stick too, once I figure out how to use it.

the way mac decorated the products with “dsquared” running across the products looks king of sloppy; like they didn’t put much effort into it. They could have done a real cool design but this one falls flat for me

I have the 165 from BBR and it doesn’t look anything like that one in the photo. Maybe that’s a bad photo, but that brush isn’t tapered as much as the BBR one is. The BBR brush is like a calligraphy brush. =\

i would say its conclear for the lips so that you can lip line your perfect pout ! you could easily use your conclear for this! if you go to the us mac website and watch the video for the red lips this shows ypu i belive chrisitne has done a video on this too x

yay! can’t wait for this and the grease paint sticks…imagine the blue one! and dsquared^2 is one of the hottest canadian designers! yay for canadian companies 😀

the grease paints (horrible name) sound really interesting, i want them! they look smooth and pigmented. i wonder if mac will release some permanently?

WHAAA. I’m so excited for the sculpt & shapes!!! I’m definitely getting the 168 finally to go with it! <333

& Did anyone else notice that blood red is…. purpleish?

the light pink ls the lip erase both stulpt && shapes purple && black greasepaint sticks feline kohl power && the 165. I need an asprin, no not for me, for my wallet!!!

is it wise to buy both of the sculpt&shape duos? if i use only on myself. so i’m just curious that these two goes with almost all of the skintones?

Has anyone tried these Grease Paint Sticks? I’m really interested in them and was wondering what peoples opinions were on them. Also it Feline Kohl Power eyeliner as amazing as everyone says?

October is going to be a boring month for me… I don’t like either of the MAC Collections being released in October. Unfortunately, it’s my birthday month, too. :o(
No MAC presents for me…

A monday launch date? Hmm that is unusual for MAC. Lately they havent been sticking to the original schedule anyway so I wont be surprised to see it earlier.

Nude Rose, Sculpt and Shape, 3 felines, 165, greasepaint sticks!
Oh my, theyll have to go in my christmas bag!
I wonder when its launched on the UK website anyone know?

In the UK the collections come out at the stores and counters on the first thursday of the month and comes out on the website until the first tues of the month. So for this month it comes out on the website after it comes out in the stores :'(

I really like Nude Rose lip stick, Bone Beige/ Emphasize sculpt and shape,2-3 felines (seriously), B Grease Paint,Thats it. This collection is gonna take alot of my money, I didn’t even expect it to be this good cause none of the recent ones have been anything special.

I know this isnt completely related, but a question I have been wondering for a while. Is Back 2 MAC existant in the UK and what products does it not include? Thanks for anybodies help in advance!

back2mac does exist but in the uk as far as im aware when you take back any 6 mac containers orany product eg wipe packets back you only get a free lipstick!

Ohmigosh! I will definitely be getting all the greasesticks, lip conditioner, and the eyeliner! Maybe a lipstick! The lip conditioner is such an awesome color! Omigosh 🙂 I am in love with greasesticks beacause of the Style Black collection! Cant wait for this!

so is the 165 just a highlighter brush?
im defitnitley getting a sculpt and shape so can i use it with that?
well im getting nude rose LS for sure and sculpt and shape but i want to know whT THE BRUSH IS FOR BEFOR I ACTUALLY BUY IT

You can really use the brush however you want, though I do use it as a highlighter brush myself. I like the 168 or 169 for contouring!

hi selena. like christine i do love using the 165 for highligting but my fav is to use it with loose powder for under neath the eyes and around the nose too 🙂 X

I went to my local mac today and I was asking about this collection since it releases tomorrow. She mentioned that feline will be back sometime again =) But the only thing is she didn’t say when or what collection. I’ve never tried feline myself but I am definitly going to pick up one since its so highly rated..then maybe I will pick up another if I really like it.

i want to get one out of the two sculpt and shape powders but i have no idea which would look good or show up on my NC40-42 skin tone. I have a really yellow undertone. i would really like it if someone can tell me which would look best???any suggestions?
