MAC Love Lace Collection for Winter 2009 + Added Photos

MAC Love Lace Collection

MAC Cosmetics Love Lace Collection

U.S. Launch Date: December 26th, 2009

Every couturier has forever had a fascination with the mysterious and alluring qualities of Lace. From Evita to Marlene Dietrich to some of the best-dressed of our red-carpet modern screen stars, it’s a long love affair. This salon-intimate collection is all about a dramatic, intense, smoky eye, with shadows that flash frosty grey to deep blue. Kohl Power is brought back for a limited time in favourite shades plus a new blackened marine blue. And naturally, 44 Lash adds the depth and desire. Lips stay pleasingly pale and Nail Lacquer in Light Affair adds a hint of danger. If ever there was a moment to do away with the winter doldrums and add some instant intrigue, this is it.

I saw all of this stuff today!!Both lipglasses are soo pretty! I was unimpressed with the eyeshadows myself but Sense of Style and Raven Kohl Powers are both beautiful. The nail polish was really light. Kinda like a off white mixed with really light grey.

So, the eyeshadow “Hypnotizing” looks NOTHING like that picture above, it’s beautiful and the eye Kohl is nowhere near blue, and if it does, it’s a really, really, really, almost black navy with a tad bit of sparkle.

I don’t know if it is just me, but the promo picture for this collection is possibly the prettiest I’ve ever seen. I love blues and kohl power eye pencils so I’m really excited about this collection. πŸ™‚

MAC is killing me!! Im was trying to save for Warm and Cozy now I gotta save for this collection and All Races! I really want to check out Feline kohl power since I have three from a previous collection and I love them

egon Avatar

the lipglosses look nice so I’ll have to check them out, I’m definitely getting another Feline, I bought one in the D2 collection really LOVED it & was sad I didn’t stock up

Brenda Avatar

Here’s one collection I won’t have to worry about saving for.WAY too cool toned for my neutral to warm skin. I may wind up looking sick or like I have a black eye πŸ™ I might pick up Pin Curl just because I missed it last time.

MAC does this to me all time, they come out with so many collections that I love. Warm and Cozy, Love Lace…My paycheck is going to take hit.

Hi Christine, do you have any idea if this will be an international release or US only? I live in Australia – sometimes we get “seasonal” Ltd Ed collections, sometimes we don’t, it is so frustrating!

Also, is the “Hypnotizing” eye shadow in this collection the same shade/colour/finish as the “Hypnotizing” in the Holiday “Sorceress” eye kit? (sorry if this is a silly question, I’m crazy-in-love for that shade is all!)

Haylie Avatar

Hey Christine, I’ve heard of Feline kohl power but what’s so great about it? How different is it from MUFE Aqua Eyes?

Raven looks so pretty to me!

It’s sad that a lot of people are referring to some shades as “dupable”. MAC wouldn’t be such a successful company if they did a hundred of exactly the same shade with different names. Sure, you may have already picked up a SIMILAR blue shadow in the past (espesh if you guys are all MAC addicts like me!) or may already have a black liner, but if it wasn’t different enough to create, they wouldn’t be selling it! For all those Feline fans out there – imagine if people kept saying that Feline was just a dupe for Smolder. Sure, in some ways, but if that was the case then nobody would buy Feline when it came out!
A lot of you may not realise that MAC actually creates these collections about 2 years in advance, and don’t just copy and crank out the units like some companies do. Also, every new product is tested by a worldwide panel of MAC experts – senior artists, brand managers, resident trainers, and the like – who use the product over a period of at least 6 months, then fill out strict reviews on the product, and if it doesn’t get 75% or more of the panel saying that they couldn’t live without it (and remember, the people in the panel probably have entire rooms filled with MAC!), it gets pulled and reworked, or dropped completely.
So guys, spare a thought for those MAC newbies, and for all the hard work that MAC does to create amazing collections!

Hi TS,

Do you work for MAC? You’re just very specific about what MAC does, so I’m curious if you do!

MAC is still a business, so even though creativity is very much part of MAC’s identity, it’s still important for them to listen to their customers. MAC has put out some subpar products (e.g. Suite Array) that even I couldn’t fathom how they got through testing. They’re not a perfect brand, but they certainly have many good products and shades – but inevitably, not every product can be amazing and we should all be allowed to hold our own opinions.

It would be difficult to say that there wasn’t hard work put into just about any and all products and services put into the marketplace… MAC is no exception. But I am also a paying customer and know and understand that I do pay a substantial markup on products I purchase from MAC. I love and will always be a MAC fan, but they’re not some altruistic company purely in it for creativity.

Figuring out dupes is also part of a process of budgeting – not everyone can afford to purchase every single blue eyeshadow MAC puts out (and nobody should be expected to or thought lesser of for trying to dupe new shades with previous shades).

YOU ROCK!! This is why I subscribe to your beauty blog. I trust you to give me and other readers of your blog your honest opinion and not a sales rep pitch. The economy is hard right now and if you know of a cost effective way to purchase makeup and still look fabulous why not share with fellow beauty bloggers.

Keep up the good work Christine.
