Round-up: MAC Pedro Lourenço Collection Overview & Thoughts

MAC Pedro Lourenco Collection
MAC Pedro Lourenço Collection

MAC x Pedro Lourenço Collection launches online May 29th and in selected stores on June 5th (I don’t have a list of which locations). Select international locations will see it released sometime in June.  I had serious issues with the texture of the Blush Duo, which made it nearly impossible to use, but the eyeshadow quad was really easy to use and lovely overall, even if it is dupable and contains two permanent shades (so your mileage may vary–it’s not really a must-have, but it is high quality).

BEST PERFORMING: Nude (A), Ruby (A), True Red (A)
MOST UNIQUE: Mirror (B+)

Mac did a really good job at making the packaging of this collection look very luxurious. Sometimes they’re packing in collections may not be even worth the raised price due to the limited edition packaging, especially if the shade is already in the permanent line. So it’s amazing when they come out with stunning ones like this that make it more reasonable for the few extra bucks.

MAC latest collection all failed to excite me. I don’t really see the point when a few products are as bad as this blush and most of the colors are so easily dupable. I looked at Peach Beige and immediately thought of a thousand shades that look pretty much alike. Revamping colors to sell with different names seem to be the head strategy here and I don’t like that. Plus it’s not like the products are getting any cheaper collection after collection. But people are so easily aroused by a big or fancy name endorsing products that it gets easy to launch poor quality or repetitive products and achieve commercial success. Shame.

Christine, I may have totally ignored your review (for once) and just ordered Corol. I really hope the press samples were just a fluke. I’ll make sure to update you once it gets here and give my verdict.

I was soooo close on purchasing the blush duo. But then I went to see what your thoughts were and I’m glad I did! It’s a bummer that it was a downer

I love the fact that I find most of the stuff very office-friendly, and I’m also loving the packaging. The colors are nice, is true that they’re not very unique, but I’m still seriously tempted by the eye shadows.
