Re: What RARE MAC Items Do You Own?

I LOVED reading everyone's post here..

Some rare (I think) things I have:

Spanish Fly, Bodysuit (Man, I wish they would bring this back), Bronx. Buoy-o-Buoy lippies
Mini lipglass set (Hi-Resin Rose, Electron Pink, Chroma Camel, and Infrared Wood) that are little tubes w/ twist-off tops and 2003 Lipglass Stain Treats (Chicky, Filtered, Ghettoflower, Restrained Rust)

A wonderful twist-up blush in Cool Pink (paintstick?)--i'm too lazy to go look.
Sheer color extracts in Bellyflop and breaststroke and Shadebenders iin Iridescently and Sorcery

A VIVA Glam palette of the 1st four VG lippies--I got this at a CCO in Myrtle Beach about 6-7 yrs ago and have never seen another one anywhere...The box is black/white striped with Elton John, Mary J Blige, etc. on the front...the palette itself is black..Anyone know any info about this one?

I have all the original paints except Hot & Sour (which I regret not getting to this day as well as dementhe e/s)....

Cheek, Empire, Soft Brown, Grain (in the lg eyeshadow pans), Slammin', Muscat, Slick, Quartz and Kool, Fantastic Plastic, Salsabelle (are these rare?) CCBs, Phase and Limit e/s (in twist top), Maroon, Coco and Coco Beach piggies, Parrot, Putty, lucky green, moth brown

If a vis-a-violet pigment is rare, I have that one.  I have a lot of discontinued pigments, but I don't think they are rare.  I have 3 blush ombres (I recently acquired them from a friend who did not like them).  Once they are repromoted, they will no longer be rare. lol.

My screwtop eyeshadows are my pride and joy. I consider those to be some of the most rare MAC items I own. As you can see, I am very serious about collecting them, haha. There are lots of other ones I am searching for, but so many are so old, they are next to impossible to find. I won't give up, though! There is just something about the hunt that is so thrilling. And I love having those pieces of MAC history, especially since powder products tend to last forever. Most of the colors are really so unique, too. I love pre-Lauder MAC, there was so much more of a true artistic feel to the brand.

 

Rare depotted/pro shadows:

Agate

Almond Icing

Amethyst

Paint:

Stringalong Paint Pot
 

Brushes:

#143 pencil brush

#5 shader brush

#162 angled contour brush

#272 angled shader (my all-time favorite!!!)

I also have a brow/lash brush from when MAC was founded. It doesn't have a number, it just says "MAKE-UP ART  BROW/LASH USA" on it. And I have a super old lip brush that has no lettering/numbering at all... it is definitely authentic, though. I have no idea how old it is, but it is OLD. And still performs like no time has passed at all!

 

Palettes/Quads:

Flowering Quad

Nordstrom Exclusive Eyes x 11... this palette is really cool, it contains Vex, Night Owl, and Perverted Pearl eyeshadows. I don't think I've ever seen another one for sale. I grabbed it for pretty cheap in a blogsale several years ago and thought I was dreaming. It has the original 213SE brush and Smolder liner, too.

Perverted Pearl Quad... I once had 2 of these--ridiculous!

Smoking Eyes Quad

Tease Me... Quad

Temperley palette

 

Pigments:

All-Girl

Auburn

Badlands (Rodarte)

All of the original pigment and glitter petites including Rose Gold and Blue/Brown, which were major PITAs to find!

 

Postcards:

5 Sins of Lipglass complete set

Cream Color (1996. One of my very favorite cards)

Danse (full body version)

Femme Noir (black and white version)

High Tea double-sided poster

MAC Pops Up! (from a 2010 event in Montreal)

Pure (Kool Kat version)

Rococo (gold overlay version)

Viva Glam (first ever VG card, '96)

Zoom Lash

 

I also have Haze nail lacquer. Apparently there were 2 versions of this polish--a duochrome blue/purple (blurple?) that I think was part of the permanent line and a different version that came out with Dolled Up, I believe. It is a seafoam green with pink/lavender duochrome shimmer. I have that one.

 

Also, I've always wondered--is Smoked Mauve pigment real or just a MAC legend?! I've heard that it was given out to MAC employees, but I have never been able to confirm its existence. Never seen a picture or knew of anyone who had it. There isn't even any info on Google.. like, AT ALL. Does anyone know for sure?

I think the only rare/discontinued mac I own is in the form of two body pencils in "Beelicious" and "GreenGlo".

But I hate them. Like seriously thank god for the invention of chromaline pencils. lol

post #158 of 178

Wow! MAC needs to read this thread to get ideas for which items that need to be repromoted.

post #159 of 178

I have a few of the pink Playboy Bunny lipsticks. And quite a bit of the Barbie collection.

 

I loved Bodysuit too! I think I have 2 of those. And, a bunch of stuff I can't remember right now ;)

post #160 of 178

I don´t have anything super-rare.

But maybe semi-rare?

I bought Jealousy Wakes e/s earlier this year.

It´s not really rare, but it´s unusual here in Sweden.

 

Also, I´ve got Juiced e/s.

Maybe not rare, but it´s d/c.

It was my first product ever from MAC.

I bought it when I was 16 y/o,

8 years ago...

 

Really lame, I know.

post #161 of 178

I forgot to say:

I could kill for Haze e/s,

it´s so freaking beautiful!

post #164 of 178

I guess the rarest stuff I own is:

 

Ripe Peach Blush Ombre

 

Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre (though not as rare as it was re-promoted)

 

Strada Blush - I know this got re-promoted with Gareth Pugh but I have that one along with an original

 

I know a lot of people have the following eye shadows, but they took me a while to track down so they're "rare" to me.

 

Parrot e/s

Gulf Stream e/s

Rated R e/s

Signed Sealed e/s

 

That's it, although a lot of my stuff is LE, I don't think most of it is particularly hard to find.

I don't even know if these count as rare, but they were a pain in the butt for me to get so...

 

Metal Rock MSF

Spiced Chocolate quad

Ripe Peach blush ombre

post #167 of 178

I *think* the only rare things I own are eye shadows, Parrot and Gulf Stream, although maybe some of my other shadows are rare as well.
