MACgirl gives us the following snippet of information about a release called “MAC Trip”.
“thier is something called MAC trip that consists mostly of palletes, dont know anything about it except that.”
Wonder what this will pan out to be, might be something offered in certain high end department stores?â€š MAC usually releases quite a few palettes around the holidays.
“a super lengthening and volumizing mascara that is WATERPROOF. but it is said not to feel dry or get flakey at all like lots of waterproof mascaras do.
it is also safe for contact users. to remove it, you need to use an oil based eye makeup remover ”
Hrmm… I’m in the market for a new mascara,Â¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½ maybe this is just what I am looking for!
“… they are VERY opaque and pigmented! maybe slightly more than laquers. and there arent a lot of pearly metallic-y ones. more matte or matte-like colors so they really are like liquid lipstick. and VERY high shine. they smell different than lipglass but come in same tube and have a doe-foot applicator like lipglass. i can imagine a brush one being WAYY too much for something so opaque and glossy.”
She also mentioned something very interesting later in her post:
“also i dont know if chromeglass will replace laquers but i do know they will be re-released along with… creamstick pearl lipliners *zips lips before gushing anything else*”
I’m wondering what MAC has in store for us? Creamstick pearl lipliners? Sounds sexy!
Suzy_H on MUA posted an intresting clipping from a magazine feature for Holiday ’06, among other items pictured was a peek at Formal Black! Thanks for the tip Ette!
productjunkie on the forum had this to say about the upcoming MAC bags:
“They are a “crinkle” material in black faux leather. There’s the mini bag, the slim bag and the small bag. They are actually really nice. And of course designed by Mr. Matt Murphy.”
Looking forward to seeing these, I actually really enjoy MAC’s bags. My personal favorite is one from Hollidazzle, which also ranks as one of my favorite overall collections.
We’ve finally got a fix on information from this years holiday collections. marezx on MUA posted the following, Thanks marezx!:
“My favorite MA at NYC Bendel gave me a sneak peek of the holiday palettes/minis today. What we have to look forward to:
4 eye palettes (warm, cool, smoky, sueded)
2 lip palettes (warm, cool)
These palettes have classic black outsides with patterns, but the insides look just like last year’s, i.e. 6 square wells, 3 over 3. Sorry, too many color names to remember, but it seemed many of the eye palettes had new colors.
4 lip sets like last year’s with 2 l/s and 1 l/g (pink, peach, red, tan)
Palettes (Formal Black collection) due out October 19.
3 brush sets (basic, face, eyes)
2 lip/lustreglass mini sets with 3 lipglasses & 2 lustreglasses (warm, cool)
1 lipgelee mini set (Jellicious (I think), Saplicious, Jellybabe, Who’s That Lady)
2 pigment mini sets, 5 vials each (warm, cool)
10/19 – formal black
10/19 – brow beat
11/9 – dress sets
11/9 – classics
11/30 – mac couture
11/22 – -jewelescent-
12/26 – danse
12/26 – skincare
Speculation is -jewelescent- is the main holiday collection (hollidazzle, ornamentalism), and Danse will the “after holiday” release similar to last years Lingerie. Consumer complaints about last years holiday palette packaging was addressed in this years release. They have been described as “this year they are going to go for a classier look. This year the palettes will be in all black, but with different textures. ex: Velvet, Lace, etc.”. Brush sets have been suggested to be similarly coordinated! Can’t wait for promo images from these collections!
Leave it to eBay to break the Viva Glam 6 postcared images! VGVI lipstick is described as “A warm terracotta plum fusion with pearl”. You can find swatches on paper of the lipstick and lipglass within this thread on the forum.
