MAC Ruffian Collection for Summer 2012


MAC Ruffian Collection for Summer 2012

Cult New York designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais of Ruffian bring their infamous swagger to M·A·C in three exclusive Ruffian Manicures and Lipsticks. Each ready-to-wear set includes 24 nails that are pre-glued and in assorted sizes to ensure a couture-worthy fit. Touch and go with Spectator ovals, an inky spin on the classic French manicure; turn everything to gold with gilded tips à la Demilune; or push buttons in five-alarm Demoiselle talons. For the power pout: Ruffian Red, Ruffian Naked, a creamy beige, and Ruffian Gold, its 24-carat kin. A triple-threat of colour, texture and style.

Ruffian Red is gorgeous but we’ll have to wait until september in Europe I fear, time to save up money !
thanks for posting this upcoming collection !

This press release is so late! Weird.
Oh God, I want all the lipsticks…and Spectator. Even though it looks like the insignia nail only comes in one size? And even though I only want them because it’s Ruffian.

 @coldvault It’s been out for quite a long time now.
 
Wonder why they changed the finish of the red lipstick, it was originally amplified from what I’ve read. Might get it, not sure yet.

Maybe it’s just me, but the first thing that came to mind are the fake nails that come in toy “beauty sets” that I buy for my 5 year old. I have to say, though, the lipsticks are pretty, especially the red & the nude.

I want to get the gold/black nails, flip them around, file them, and make them gold tips instead.  My big concern is that press-ons aren’t reuseable, so paying $25 for a set is a lot to ask for.

YET ANOTHER collection???  I’m starting to feel as though there is a new one each week. Why stop there, MAC? Why not just issue a new L/E collection every 3 days?  I’m glad for those who love MAC, but….
Never mind.  <goes to sit in the corner and roll her eyes> 

I love MAC and I think all their products are great, but is it just me, or does anyone else feel like there are so many many collections lately? I have been using MAC for years, and I notice lately that even before one collection is said and done the next is out? I guess I shouldn’t complain – they are fab!!!

What..the…hell! Mac you have got to be kidding me..a press on nail collection?! Someones really loosing their creativity or just getting lazier and lazier. a press on nails for $25.00 is a joke…Beth Ditto collection was just the start/kicker.

 @myesha2003 I’m sure you’d prefer Christine to answer, but if it helps at all, I’ll know personally about the precise colors in a few days when my Ruffian gets here, and untl then, I can tell you this: the swatches I’ve seen look rather similar, but Rufian is MATTE and Red Racer is SATIN. The finish can make all the difference in the world! The satin finish is one of my favorites–very pigmented with a slight sheen to it without being glossy, while the matte is sure to be a bit more pigmented, shine-free/dry looking, and easier to work with in terms of laying glosses on top of it without the color mixing into the 2nd layer. HTH

Just ordered Ruffian Red…I remember it being this lipstick used at a Ruffian runway show that they gave to the attendees. All the people who received it, loved it so much. Since MAC wasn’t planning on selling it originally, you know it was for real. I hope its still the same.

What is the difference between Ruffian Red and Ruby Woo?!  Also, Does MAC really need another pale peachy nude?  It seems that MAC comes out with different “collections” with the same lip colors but with different names. 

 @Trudy I saw swatches of all these colors together, all in a row (yes, Ruffian, too), and they do look different. Not so different that one would need all of them, but different enough that a person with an eye for color differences (a la Christine saying “such and such is more blue”) would see that they are different reds. If you don’t collect these things, then you’re probably fine with just one. If you’re like me and you do collect… that’s a different story. Lucky me, I don’t have Ruby Woo or Russian Red because I never have time to buy perm lippies with all the LEs coming out HAHA!

Got the red and gold lippie. But the press on-nails are over the top expensive. Are they crazy overthere at MAC? And enough with the wanna be LE collections. Come on. Its like they really want to see us broke…
