    MAC Strength Collection Discussion (December 2012)

    ... time for a new thread

    Release Date 12/26

    I am woman: fearless, elegant, strong. We love women who strike powerful poses, stand out, redefine the notion of beauty – and do it with an inner/outer strength that`s irresistibleand impossible to ignore. Colour is a vehicle for women to flex their femininity and MAC`s new collection reflects this state of mind and style. It starts with dramatic eyes defined by two Eye Shadow Quads that sculpt and highlight, precision Penultimate Eye Liner and extra-volumizing Opulash. Lips pump up with vivid colour to project power while Powder Blush in natural tones softly chisels cheeks. And, nailing it for overall presentation, MAC`s high-gloss Nail Lacquer.

    hey sorry i haven't been around to answer more questions - i had a laptop explosion and am adjusting to a new one, with a very different new operating system, etc.

    I wish I could remember the name of this darn collection - it isn't directly a name with Muscle in it hehe, but there is a product called Muscle Memory, lol. I was in at my MAC store again today but I was so totally exhausted and they were very busy so I didn't want to pester about looking in the book again for more details.

    I'll go back into the Early Buzz thread and get the link to my post about some of the colors and products - it really sounds fabulous, and that promo image is just so insanely crazy and awesome!!!

    We don't have much info yet, except that liba said there will be a product called Muscle Memory.

    I was thinking back on it and these have been big hits for me for the last few years. I really liked Love Lace/ Warm & Cozy, then the Champale/ Stylishly Yours (some of my favourite pigments!) and of course Naturally/ Iris Apfel. So the Muscle Lady/ Tuxedo collections totally have my attention. I also love the fact that Mac does these at a time when other companies are just relaxing between holiday collections and their Spring launches. It's like a little pick-me-up to get you through the darkest days of winter.

Again, there are some vampy purple and fuchsia lipsticks and a SPARKLING BLACK LIPSTICK - this is the one we had that photo of being applied to a model's lips a while back from these past runway shows. Excuse me for forgetting the name but when I saw it, I got hot and bothered and the description makes it sound even better. Also REVENGE IS SWEET lipglass is BACK, so get in line baby!!!!!!!!! Frankly I was overwhelmed with how both of these two collections sounded - they are MY KINDA WONDERFUL!!!
    Quote taken from this post. It looks like we're expecting:

    Lipsticks:
    Vampy purple
    Fuschia
    Sparkling black (!)

    Lipglass:
    Revenge Is Sweet

    Eyeshadow quads:
    Warm black

    Hopefully we will get more info soon!

    I wonder if the sparkling black lipstick will be something like Ruffian Gold, where it can be layered over other lipsticks to add a dark glitter effect.

    It did NOT look sheer from the face charts I saw - it was BLAQUE. You could maybe blot it into a stain - also somewhere in the buzz thread a few weeks ago, someone posted a backstage runway photo with an MA holding the tube in her hand - it had the name of it too...I remember because it looked yummy.
