MAC Style Black Collection ("All Black Collection") for Fall 2009

MAC Style Black Collection

U.S. Launch Date: September 24th, 2009
International Launch Date: October 2009

From “Back to Black” beehive and eyeliner to Steven “80s” Sprouse-in-the-House kohl and fringe to Gareth Pugh London New Goth, Black is simply beyond. Lips, nails, eyes there’s no more dramatic way to declare your desire, separate your sensibility, celebrate your magnetism. They WILL surrender to a Blackfire Glimmerglass, Rapidblack Penultimate Eyeliner, a slash of Greasepaint Stick, and the hot scratch of Baby Goth Girl Nail Lacquer. Style Black is a way of life, a shadowy and mysterious figure of fantasy, even for just one dark and dangerous night.

Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask ($19.50 U.S> / $23.50 CDN)

VATM contains natural volcanic ash to cleanse and treat the skin. The mineral-rich ash works with oat kernel flour to help absorb excess oil from the skin’s surface. A combo of natural oils (lavendar, sunflower, safflower seed and evening primrose) help lubricate the skin, leaving it feeling soft and moisturized. It helps to even out the skin’s texture and leaves the skin feeling smooth and perfected for makeup application. The unique formula glides effortlessly onto the skin, allowing ample playtime. The mask heats up on the skin when used with water and removes impurities from the surface, leaving skin looking radiant and fresh. Use 1-3 times a week. Derm-tested, non-acnegenic and for all skins. 3.4oz (Limited Edition)

I’m really excited for this collection πŸ™‚ I love black! And I am so glad the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator will be back. I only have a little bit left and I’ve been holding on to it for dear life. lol

Since I’m ghostly pale this collection doesn’t really interest me, but I really want Blue Flame πŸ˜€ Wait, wasn’t Blue Flame from the Cool Heat collection?

Yup Blue Flame from Cool Heat. Kinda strange because here they describe it black with blue pearl and back during the Cool Heat Collection they described it as deep navy blue……..

they are different blue flames. the original was just a (matte?) blue e/s, the one in this collection is a mineralized shadow w/ swirly black & blue.

I am pale too but Blk looks hott. It definitely takes a step back to get use to it but still amazing. I got to play with the greasepaint stick and gave myself that total grunge look and i loved it as well.

The mineralized shadows are great. they are so much more sparkley than Black Tied and Beauty Marked.

As for the Volcanic ash exfoliater stuff. I tried it on my hand and loved it. But probably best used in the shower.

wow, i’ll have to test this out in the store. it’s kinda awesome, but i don’t know if the black would suit my extremely pale skin, without looking gothic.

I’m very pale, too, and I’ve done blackish (black liner over the entire lip with a very dark gloss over it) lips before, and if I use enough pink-y blush it has a really cool effect, not gothic-y at all, especially if you do light or bright eye makeup with it.

I dunno about black lips but those eye shadows and the Baby Goth Girl nail polish is sounding serious. Will wait to see more pictures!

Interesting for the eyes as I’m a lover of black smokey and black on the eyes! Also, it’ll be esthetically extremelly interesting to see all the black lipsticks and lip products. Lots of girls will buy this, I don’t doubt it but I wonder how many of them will actually wear the black lips in the streets (beside the goth girls who always did).

I guess I’m the only one not really interested in black l/s and l/g…………..

I just received my F&F haul shipment & then you hit us with these back-to-back fall launch posts. I love you Christine, but my brain hurts (in a good way of course!!) What’s a makeup addict to do?!?! I LOVE IT :):):)

The next season of MAC releases has got me so excited… finally they’re not churning out the same rehashed stuff. And Night Violet is back πŸ˜€ I need to get Black Knight just for the name.

Love the idea! Think I’d be picking up Bat Black CCB since I’ve never seen it and a glimmerglass. I was really stoked for the eyeshadows, but I’m sadly allergic to mineral makeup, so this is a real big disappointment for me πŸ™

Wow all the Fall and Winter Collections look so exciting!! And I can’t believe Volcanic Ash Exfoliator is coming back!!!! Sooooo excited!!!

Thanks for posting these!!

I can’t wait for this! I would never use a black lipstick, but i am willing to get it anyways!

Mac has me really excited for their fall & winter collections… Yay πŸ™‚

It is amazing how black lippies products are becoming more mainstream… This seems like a darker, noir collection after the success of last years dark Cult of Cherry hits.

I need
Black Knight Cremesheen
Blackfire Glimmerglass
Young Punk Mineralize Eye Shadow
Blue Flame Mineralize Eye Shadow
Baby Goth Girl Nail Polish

I usually say I want nail polishes but never get them cause of the price…but black with pink and purple shimmer is like a dream come true for me.

Oooooooooh! Can’t wait to see the pics and reviews of the products! I swear MAC is making me broke… Def going to have to pick up some of the glimmerglasses and nail polish or two!

not interested in the all black color of this collection. although, two of the mineralize e/s’s sound interesting (young punk and blue flame) and the volcanic Ash exfoliator.

I am really looking forward to the Volcanic Ash Exfoliater. I missed out on it the first time. I’m hoping they make it permanent this time.

Oh wow, I was scanning the list and thought meh…another collection to pass on. Until I saw the words “VOLCANIC ASH EXFOLIATOR” Yay! I still have quite a bit left but at least I know I don’t have to skimp anymore. I can’t wait to pick up the thermal mask as well.

This collection could not be LESS for me unless it also including a gold eye shadow and orange lipstick rofl. I can safely say pass on all of it – no thanks on black lips and dark eyeshadow! Another bullet dodged haha!

the only thing that interests me is the volcanic ash skin products… the rest is too vampy and goth like for my liking. maybe the eyeshadows but thats the only other thing that sparks my interest.

I know myself, and I know that I’ll get the black lip products just to have them in my collection. I doubt I’ll ever wear them (Halloween maybe?). I struggle with dark reds! So difficult to keep up with all day! But I’m really excited about the eyes and Volcanic Ash of course!

So freaking stoked for this collection! I need the volcanic ash exfoliator and mask! and the new nail polishes and maybe the glimmerglass and a mattene. Maybe an eyeshadow too! lol love it! its about time they did black–now there going all out!

I’ll definitely be picking up Black Knight. I’d prefer it were a matte, but cremesheen’ll do. I’ll probably skip the mattenes. I bought 3 of the ones from Cult of Cherry, but I rarely use them (even thought I love the colors) because I don’t like the formula. The glimmerglasses sound interesting, though. I’ll probably get at least one.

I wish I was paler for this collection, the contrast between pale skin and dark eyes/lips would be beautiful for black and white pictures. I love buying odd makeup for the sake of high glamour shots. <3

I like this trend. I think Black lips will be fun!! BTW, I tried to click on the “source” and it took me to a discontinued website?

I literally wan’t everythimg in this collection. I’m a dark eyes and dark lippie kinda gal. I can’t wait!!! Love love love.

HMMM.. to bad all the e/s are mineral. I love black eyeshadow! I’ll probably skip the nail polish cuz I mix my own but the glimmerglass is callin my name!!

every goth girl’s dream haha… i hope these products are wearable! i don’t mind if theyre black, just as long as theyre adjusted to a wearable black.. if that makes sense… by then my pale skin will be a little more tan from the summer, so i’m not too scared πŸ™‚

well one reason they are really even introducing the black lipstick is not necessarily to wear it by itself but to actually mix it with other lip sticks to create awesome shades of that particular one. like dubonnet with it, or hug me, or even something like russian red, or girl about town. its all about getting creative =)

Im super flippin excited about the grease paint stick. =D it has AWESOME staying power. water resistant, can withstand pool junkies =)

the mineralize shadows hurt my eyes, i cant wear them =( but ill get them for shoots.

the displays are freaking GORGEOUS!!!!!

I’m thinking Bling Black would look amazing over O lipstick!

I can’t wait for the solid black lipstick. It’s so hard to find a true black lipstick that’s actually of good quality. plus it’s a cremesheen, my favorite finish!

I don’t know about the black lips, but everything else, the eye shadow, cream bases, nail polish are all so enticing! I need to decide between pink and gold pearls. I love both! Glad it’s out in October internationally, that way I have time to save up.

i know You are a fan of the exfoliator πŸ˜€
last time i wanted to get it,it just went dc, so this time i try to save money for it,which will ba hard,since i want so many eyeshadows from different brands :-DDDD

OMG!!! VAE and a mask!! Holy smokes… so stocking up on the VAE and will probably grab a few of the masks (I’m such a whore for masks). I’m so happy this is coming out again I love it to death.

I saw these swatched on paper today. the greasestick is awesome. it has a purple shine to it. The glimmerglasses and sheer with glitter in them. very pretty. The eyeshadows are really cool especially cinderfella. Hard to describe but if you like black you are gonna love these!!

Pardon the french, buuut.

Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck. I’m going to be so disgustingly broke. And I’m pretty much drooling right now. HELLO, FALL. <33333333333333

Ugh.. I don’t like mineralize eyeshadows. But I’ll definately get Black Knight l/s, the ccbs, and maybe Baby Goth Girl n/l. But what is a Grease Paintstick?? Is it like a shadestick?

Wow finally a collection on the darkside.
I will SLEEP outside of my MAC store the night before just so I can get my hands on VAE… haha.


I’ll Be getting Bling Black & Black fire Glimmerglass
Young Punk MES
Black Grease Stick

& maybe Bat Black CCB

I alredy have Night Violet , its awsome really vampy.

This is the collection every MAC loving goth girl has been waiting for, I want almost all of it, and I’ve never said that about a collection before.

this collection looks pretty exciting. I already own Night Violet, so that’s one thing to knock off the list. I wonder if the glimmerglasses are anything like the Kat Von D sheer black lipgloss, because I love that.

whoa! i will have to check this out in the store…black m/u intimidates me! i definitely should get the volcanic ash products though, see what the fuss is all about! πŸ™‚

Woah, i’m not so sure about black lips and faces, LOL. Not so much my style. But I may get one of the black eyeshadows, they sound pretty unique, and I really don’t have a good black eyeshadow. Also possibly a nail polish….and a volcano ash exfoliator? Sweet! That sounds awesome, I may check that out…but i don’t think I’m gonna go crazy with this collection.

Is the Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask going to be $19.50 like the scrub or will it be more? Trying to budget things out for my haul. If anybody knows please pass it on. thanx

Very intriqued by this collection but black scares me lol. Not sure whether i should skip or b brave and order some and see if i can find a way 2 use them….

I agree. I love black everything… I’m saving my money starting now for this collection. I was going to get things from color craft but I think it can wait. I think I’ll like this collection much better πŸ™‚

A couple of months ago I constantly read a lot about the wonders of the volcanic ash. Is it really that good?
What does it do?
Please tell me, I have saved up so much money so I can haul at mac, and I want to know if the volcanic ash is really worth buying. πŸ™‚

In the simplest form, it is a scrub or an exfoliator. It can be used on face or body, but for the price/size, I’ve always stuck with it as a face product. It just feels AMAZING after you’ve used it. Your skin is super soft, glowy, and just feels healthier. It’s not too gritty or rough on the skin, and it’s never broken me out or agitated my skin in any way.

I really do love it, and I will probably buy 5-10. No joke!

This comes out the day before my b-day! I will be asking my Boyf for a serious MAC shopping spree if nothing else! I can’t freaking wait!

Im so excited for the Volcanic Exfoliator to come back! Ive heard soo many great things about it and since i missed out on it when it was earlier released in another collection, im planning to stock up for this one!

I must must MUST have , Black Knight lipstick , Bling Black glimmer glass , Black Fire glimmerglass , Black ware Lipglass , Young Punk MES & The Grease Paint Stick <3


WOW! Finally MAC is partaking in the black lips trend. I grabbed up all of the dark mattenes from Cult of Cherry which I love wearing in the fall for dark vampy makeup. I don’t know if I have enough balls to wear black though! ack! I wonder how these black lipglasses compare to Lancome’s piha black lipgloss?> I think this collection will be a hit, but I hope I actually see girls wearing these colors! I live in Minneapolis and no one wears this bold of makeup and it sucks. Maybe I should move to NYC where girls actually partake in trends! lol I want to get the Volcanic ash exf and mask because of all the mad raves. I def want to get Baby Girl Goth, Blackfire and Young Punk. I love the idea of black with pink glitter accents.

Oh Yay!

Definitely going to get:

Volcanic Ash Exfoliator (maybe 2)
Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask (maybe 2)
Baby Goth Girl Nail Lacquer
Blackfire Glimmerglass
Young Punk & Gilt by Association mineralize eyeshadows.

I may to take a close look at the eyeshadows and see how they look in person as I don’t really wear a whole lot of black on the lids. But I’m excited to get the rest.

DEFINITELY THE VOLCANIC ASH EXFOLIATOR! And, maybe the a couple eye shadows (if formulatio is ok), not too much, but then again i like neutrals and brights

interesting.. ill prob buy something( LOL) but i dont think ill ever wear black lipstick..really
will try one with a purple or pink highlight
mineralize.. i dont think so i rather have matte than sparkly unless its for a nite event.

Mineralize Eye Shadows ($19.00 U.S. / $23.50 CDN)
Cinderfella Black with silver pearl (Limited Edition)
Gilt by Association Black with gold bronze pearl (Limited Edition)
