MAC Spring 2009 Sugarsweet Collection, Grand Duos Sneak Peek

Our friend Kat from got an exclusive peek at some of the upcoming spring/summer looks from MAC! Here are a few images she took that show off some of the new products we’ll be seeing in the next few months. Those glosses above are, in fact, from the Sugarsweet Collection, as confirmed by a MA friend of mine. Apparently, the colors do not mix because of different densities (?)! Several shadesticks, two mineralize skinfinishes (which look really different from previous launches), some shadows, and even the blush duos from Grand Duos!

The Shadestick packaging is pretty (instead of the classic black). Also the lipsticks look amazing! I am praying that the light color on the very right is ‘Bubbles’ (old disc. shade). …Wish they would come out with some more ‘normal’ shades of MSF like quite a few collections back when they actually resembled blush and bronzer. Does anyone else feel a lot of the new ones are very orange-bronze?

I have to say a few other brands of Spring 2009 already stole my heart though. Seems like MAC is one of the last to do a Spring look. LOL, or are they just starting to release ‘Spring’ looks in Winter now?

I’m interested in 1 lipstick, 1 or 2 lipglasses, 1 shadestick and maybe 1 blush. Hopefully there isn’t going to be much I want this year, I’d like to be able to get some old LE items off of Ebay snd some perm items too.

soo much better than hello kitty, this is what hello kitty should have been!!

i love all of this, the msf, the duo’s and that pale pink lipgloss and those shadesticks!!

Such such a great collection!

I agree l am liking this a hell of a lot more than HK. The shadesticks and glosses look amazing. Wondering if there is more to this collection…crosses fingers for shadows and paintpots.

I really love the overall colours of this! Actually it sort of is making me sad that while I LOVE the HK packaging, the colours are too bright and not for me… while these are! I’m in LOVE with my mineral blush so I’ll have to check out the duos! Plus those eyeshadow look super cute so far! The lipgloss looks weird to me! But not in a bad way! Sort of like.. the product is old and separated like nailpolish or something, you know? I think I’ll have to see them in person 😀

Hm, this is going to be a “cheap” collection. Not a single products catches my attention, and i skin gets in trouble, when I use mineral products.

I was hoping for some cute packaging like cupcakes or cakes or sprinkles haha but I love the colors involved the collection! The shadestick in RED VELVET looks gorgeous..I saw a swatch of it a couple of weeks ago..def gonna try that one. And the third lipglass looks really pretty too. Excited about this one 🙂

You know, it’s like, not fair that they keep on coming out with new amazing lines considering I spend every ounce of money right down to the last penny on MAC. This looks really good, definantly a nice post-Hello Kitty line.

I can totally see where they were going with the HK line, but they would have been more successful had they done pretty Springy pastels like this collection! HK should have been this, not the sexy/vampy darker HK that they are trying to push.

Hi Rebecca I agree with you yes they should have springy pastels I do like the looks of it anyway as soon as it becomes out Im going to give it a try & see how looks

Thanks for the info! I might have to see the lipglosses before I decide. They look really pretty in the tube but I don’t know yet. I might buy a shadestick or 2 and try them out, I never had them before. The MSF’s I think I can skip on since I have 3 now and I wanna try and use things up. Ohhh and that pink lipstick looks pretty appealing! This kind of brings sigh of relief to my wallet lol.

wow, I love the look of those MSF and the duo blushed. Not sure about the lipgloss with the funny density! I have never used shadesticks before, How do they compare with other bases (paints, paintpots)?

Thanks for the sneak peek Christine 🙂

Oh no…why MAC, WHY! I’m gonna be so broke and will need to get another set of drawers to store all my cosmetics. Me likey many many items from this collection!

The glosses look yummy!!! I’ve never used shadesticks but these look nice. I would love if someone would share why they like them and how best to use them (base, eyeshadow, etc.) Thanks!

The lipstick’s and MSF’s I like, but the Lipglosses look so cheap and, sorry to say, but a bit ‘drugstore brand’. Im not a fan of the new shadstick packaging either, its just not MAC.

i’m really excited about this collection. i can’t wait for these to come out! the colors are awesome. the MSF are pretty and so different. i like the purple lipstick!

Layered lip glosses? Isn’t that reserved for the stuff they sell young girls at drug stores? I don’t care for that idea at all.

However… the shadesticks look great – love the slick new tubes for them, and I’m eager to see the actual colors swatched for those!

i am glad i passed on a lot of collections. i just got one or two items that really caught my eye and i plan to get 2 items from hk as well because there’s just so many collections. i don’t really love msf but this one is really so pretty and it does look like lightscapade.i’ll probably get that and if the shadesticks aren’t too dry, i’ll get that too. thanks christine for this.

those lippies look great i missed the cuture line that had some that looked like those so im getting al of them and all the shade sticks lol hello kitty now this 🙂 its great that i found mac when i did i love mac.

I hope that one MSF is Lightscapade, I’d like to add that to my collection. And I am attracted to the one gloss the looks blue on the bottom & I love the mineralize blushes!

Yay! It is ‘Bubbles’! I feel so old-school for knowing this discontinued color. LOL

Actually this collection is growing on me. I may have to pick up the second lipstick and some other stuff. I am a sucker for the names tooand candy pastel colors.

I’m really excited about this collection. Much more than any collection since the start of 2009.
I actually find it much more Japanese and kawa

This collection is lovely! So truly pretty. This is the make up I want to wear; I don’t have to die with the biggest traincase but I really need a few just right pretty lipsticks and 2 of these look like it.
And those lip glasses! Gimme gimmick!!! I just hope, not minty?

I’m so excited for this to come out! I really want Saint Germain and Bubbles (the two lipsticks) one of the lipglasses ( can’t decide!) and definitely some shadesticks!

i’m not interested in the glosses,
but im SUPER excited for lolipop loving, the top MSF, BOTH the eyeshadows, and ALL the shadesticks!! im so excited!
