“Drive,” she said… and there’s no mistaking a woman on a mission to get what she wants! And in this case, that would be the ultimate in future-forward pro-longwear technology: a creamy new eyeshadow, plus lipglass that juices up gloss for six extended hours of lasting shine, lip pencil that won’t skip-and-drag, and they go for 15 hours – that’s about the time it takes to drive from Paris to Monte Carlo… plus five hours of still looking flawless for dinner.

Look at all those eyeshadows! I’m so excited for MAC’s fall releases. I feel like today is Christmas with all of these new colors!

Mariella Avatar

Christine, do you know what makes the Pro Longwear eye shadows “long wear”? They seem to have similar finishes to the regular MAC shadows (frost, satin, etc.). Has MAC said anything about what makes these particular shadows “long wear”?

Mariella Avatar

…oh, and how do they expect us mere mortals (as opposed to heiresses and lottery winners) to afford all these products? I was having a hard enough time figuring out how I was going to bankroll the Semi-Precious stuff and treat myself to Chanel Etole and NOW THESE 85 collections from MAC (well it sure seems like 85…or more).

Shannon Avatar

Yeah a permanent collection that will be out on the market for what? A nano second?

I just hope they keep it out for longer than they have other items they’ve said were permanent but weren’t.

SatelliteDreamer Avatar

The lipglass sounds very interesting..

I’ve seen a couple of the MAC artists mention the eyeshadows on Twitter, but they didn’t say what the formula was like. I’m wondering if it’s a cream, liquid, or powder…

Judy Avatar

I’m super excited about this. There are a few lip cremes & eyeshadows I am craving. I will wait for pictures & swatches before I make any decisions though.

blue_eyed_girlie Avatar

I am soo excited about this collection. It is my birthday and a big one at that! This is the first year they have had a launch on my birthday since I’ve been a MAC addict. Yay! =)

Becca Avatar

pro longwear eyeshadows?!?!!?!?
wow!!! deff need some, but thank GOODNESS that these are all premanent with all the other collections that MAC is realeasing!!1 it’s insane!!!!

slick Avatar

Out of all the preliminary info you just posted I am most intrigued by this one! Curious about the prolongwear shadows…sounds like they could be simllar to MUFE Aqua Creams? Also excited about cream formula lipglasses! Wonder what the formula will be like and how it compares to the Glam Glosses that are coming out? Ahhh I love fall collections!

Jazzy Avatar

YAY these are permanent and I can take my time to buy them! If they are THAT longwearing, they would be perfect for a long day at school/work…I really hope that the neutrals would be pretty!

shuz4ever Avatar

Soooo many new eyeshadows – i need a box of kleenex – happy tears!! The collection releases just after my b’day…guess i’ll be asking for MAC giftcards this year!!

Erin Avatar

MAC is going to have to start expanding the size of their stores and counters with all these permanent products. I’m a bit overwhelmed.

eva Avatar

wow prolong lipstick, a red lipstick with a frost finish! ive been willig mac to release one for ages, and now they have and its permanent. i hope its as good as im picturing πŸ™‚

Hayley Avatar

Nice to see a permanent collection! Seeing as it is all Pro Longwear, it would be good if they made the previously released foundation & concealer permanent aswell!

Becca Avatar

Wow, I wasn’t feeling MAC’s recent collections or even this year’s fall, but I think I’ll be buying EVERYTHING in this one haha! What’s a student loan for πŸ˜‰

Moni Avatar

Hope these really become permanent… Ive noticed various counters running out of the creme blushes without restocking, same with the mineralize eyeshadows duos released a couple of months ago

LM Avatar

have I missed the collection that had some ltd paint pots? I was sure I’d seen them but I can’t remember or find the deets

the lipstuff looks good (positively dashing, dark as night)

Mariella Avatar

Loving too many of these, especially the eye shadows, though I’ll be taking some of what I already have to compare as many of these look awfully close to shadows I already own. But come on, MAC – give us a BREAK! Some of us have to eat too, y’know!

KC Avatar

I really wish MAC would stop using these computer generated images as promos and show photographs of the actual products instead. I can never get a good feel of the product off these images.

Karen Avatar

is it me or these eye shadows look bigger???… I mean like the Peacocky collection eyeshadow sizes perhaps???? that’ll be cool but I’m not too pleased with the price πŸ™

Sarah Avatar

If these eyeshadows are ANYTHING like Mega Metal shadows from Peacocky, I have a feeling I’m buying every single one. I’m STILL looking for a second Dalliance to stash and am regretting not buying a few shades when I had the chance! Can’t wait for your review, Christine! (P.S. I just bought a new computer, and Temptalia looks even better on a 23″ screen!)

Hilary Avatar

I am not really into long wear lip products but I may pick one or two up from this collection. The eyeshadows look promising too. After seeing the promo images, I like this collection a bit more πŸ™‚

VJNS Avatar

Very nice collection but the shades don’t seem too different from the Colorizations Collection. I’d be interested in reading your review concerning the formula. Also, Christine, is there a way you can review how they might work on skin that’s over 50? Some formulas promise but don’t deliver due to age changes in skin quality.

grace Avatar

hey christine! πŸ™‚ would you know when the next collection with pretty (non-permanent) packaging will be out again in mac like wonder women and venomeous villians??

x x

Joan Avatar

Looks like a really great collection. I’m ready to buy lipglasses, lipsticks and eyeshadows. Just sorry to see there are no powder blushes. I wish they would come out with a collection of Pro Longwear powder blush to compete with the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour blush!

Joan Avatar

Excited about some of the Lipglass shades and eyeshadow shades and that they’re Pro Longwear. Just disappointed that there are no new powder blush shades. Mac needs to come out with a Pro Longwear powder blush collection.

Cali Avatar

These are ALL permanent?!?! Oh, thank the Lord!! Everything in this collection is absolutely to die for, I don’t know if my wallet can handle this!!

Ann Avatar

HM. Interesting. This has already been available at the MAC counter where I live for I think a few weeks and it’s not even September yet! For once something from MAC is released earlier in Asia!

Xaris Avatar

Finally! Lip liners! We don’t get a whole lot of them here at Hong Kong MAC Stores. i really need them!

I can’t wait to swatch those eyeshadows. Total addict.

When it says “permanent” – does that mean that they are permanent at PRO stores in MAC? or does that mean they are going to be permanent to all MAC stores?

Lizzie Avatar

Already out on the UK Website people, as was the same with wonder woman and others the collection cam out in the UK online before the States.

Patty Franklin Avatar

These colors look awesome! I heard they are soft, blendable, and gorgeous! Does anyone know if they will be available in the pro palette?

Sabrina Avatar

It’s odd that this comes first to the UK – and I’m a bit short of cash atm so it would have been more convenient for it come later in the month! oh well :p

JBaby Avatar

christine, the ad says creamy eyeshadows, but creamy could mean, soft and smooth, but still be a powder…. can you tell me if it a powder or cream shadow?!?!? Thanks

Tracy Avatar

Soft cell is not a light yellow pink, mine is a deep berry pink and not neutral at all and definately not light yellow pink. i expected a nude after reading your description its not and its an awful colour and very drying formulation, i cant return it so its off in the bin.

stacy Avatar

i could be wrong but the lipgloss “driven by love” swatches very close to “bold and brash” from the peacocky collection…..still love it though:)

Tracy G Avatar

Just bought Soft Sell, it is definitely not the color you have the name paired with. It is very similar to Show Me. Just thought I would let you know. I found the whole collection today at the PRO store in Las Vegas so they have been released early if anyone is interested!

Char Avatar

Christine: This is an “off of the subject” question. I noticed that Mac relaunched their turquatic fragrance and that Dillards no longer sells turquatic. I buy tons of Mac from Dillards. So, I’m wondering if I’ll ever be able to purchase turquatic at Dillards in the future… And, can you tell me if Mac still does friends and family? Thanks in advance for any input.
