MAC Couture November 2006 [color story]

post #1 of 184
Thread Starter 
It's launching November 30 for North America and sometime in December for International.
As far as I know, it's not going to partnered locations (counters), only to stores.
and here's what's involved........
Everything is packaged in this HEAVY (feels so expensive) beautiful gunmetal studding... it's almost gem-like.. as far as i could see the lipglasses and lipsticks are packaged in square tubes/vials! (very chanel!)
The lipstick and lipglass formulas are new! The Couture lipstick is amazing - a lustre finish but much more colour payoff!!
Richmetal highlighter is an intense metallic, cream to powder, buildable highlighter safe for the face, eyes and body, but not lips.. it is super lightweight and blendable and not at all sticky or tacky like CCBs.
It's more $ because the product and packaging is cream of the cream.

It'll be displayed in a sealed glass box!! From the House Of MAC....

MAC Couture Lipstick $22 US/$26 CAN
Red No.5 - Rich raspberry red with soft red pearlized pigments
House of Style - Rose Pink with pearlized pigments
Couture - Plummed mauve with pink pealized pigments
Influential - Darkened peach with gold pearl pigments

MAC Couture Lipglass $20 US/$24 CAN
Prestigious - Sheer darkened plum with gold pearl pigments
Magnificent - Sheer bright pink with white pearl pigments
Collection '06 Sheer soft pinked peach with gold pearl pigments
Savoir Faire - Sheer light caramelle with gold pearl pigments

Richmetal Highlighter $22 US/$26 CAN
La Mode - Neutral Gold
Gilt Edge - Green cast gold
Rare and Refined - Rosed gold
Arc Silver - Pure platinum

Sheer Mystery Powder $45 US/$54 CAN
Light
Medium
Dark
Deep Dark

182 Brush - The handle is in the same metal stud that all the other stuff is packaged in $55 US/$66 CAN

MAC Couture Black Box $80 US/$90 CAN

They all sound great...but they're so expensive!
post #3 of 184
will it be available online??
post #4 of 184
Darn, this one if going to be difficult for me as I don't have a MAC store in my town. Tried calling the closest one already, but they aren't accepting pre-orders for this collection. I'll try calling back and speaking with the store manager, hopefully I'll have better luck. I want everything except for the mystery powders (might change once we see the packaging for this collection).

Thanks for this info. Please clarify for me, "partnered locations" versus "stores". I'm assuming that counters are partnered locations? Stores refers to freestanding and Pro?
post #6 of 184
Wow! That sounds frickin' amazing. I can't wait!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the info!

What are the richmetal highlighters? I will probably be passing on this collection as it is more expensive than others, and from the sounds of it, we will just be paying extra for the packaging...
post #8 of 184
darn! why do i want 3 of the 4 lipsticks??

I noticed one of them is named La Mode, which was also a name for a LS from D Bohemia. Sidenote- I La Mode LS.

holy f*.

no, seriously. this is gonna kill me. if there's one thing that i can't pass up, it's high fashion! i can't even pretend to not be interested, because i can actually afford this couture!

Mystery Powder?

What is this? And why is it so freakin' expensive? I'm guessing there'll no PRO discount for these items,which means I might have to pass. With all the Holiday stuff coming out, the new brushes, NocturnElle, spray foundations/blushes, and brow kits, how the hell are we going to afford this? 2nd mortgage?

I'm gonna have to live vicariously through some richer Specktrettes for this one....hopefully y'all will post TONS of FOTDs and swatches!

Do you know what a MAC Couture Black Box is?

It's weird that they aren't accepting any pre-order. yesterday when i went to my mac, they order the holliday sets they told me i couls order the couture as well but i wasn't sure what i wanted. the brushes are supposed to have rhinestones on the handle ( swarovski crystal i believe. i will double check today) so i understand that they can be expensive.
post #14 of 184
Oh man! There is no MAC store within 2 hours of me, and working in retail means I get NO time off during the holidays. I hope it's online because a couple of the lipsticks and lipglasses sound nice.
post #15 of 184
Does anyone know if these will be available at The Bay counters in Canada and Nordies counters in the US??? What about online? I was just about to order the 182 brush today, but I will wait and pay the extra $11CDN if I can get the coture brush!!!

Thanks so much for the info!!!!
post #16 of 184
Holy cow, I don't know how in the world I will be able to afford Christmas presents this year. I want like 90% of the products and I gotta have that box. I love the sound of this collection! Thanks for the info!
post #17 of 184
The couture black box......sounds interesting......wonder what that is.
post #18 of 184
the only thing im really intrested in from this collection is the crystal brushes

and maybe the highlighting powder but it all depends on how much money i have left to spend after the other collections haha
post #19 of 184
Wow, I really need most of it! Ha ha, NEED. Yea right! I cannot wait to see EVERYTHING. I hope they hired extra MA's because Mac is going to be BUSY this season with me being FIRST IN LINE.....for most of this!

Thanks for all the info

Probably not if there's special packaging...
post #22 of 184
I am already in love! I'm not usually all over LE items but this will be mine, oh yes :nod: I do agree have to agree though that they are releasing waaaaay to many LE/SE/new releases at once!


For those you who have no access to a MAC store can you not rely on one of the lovely specktrette’s who is closer to a store to purchase the items for you then post them to you? I'm not offering (although I have no probs with posting the items for anyone as I live only 10 mins away from the NYC pro store) but if any of you are close or very familiar with any of the members here, it wouldn't hurt to ask. It would be a shame to miss out because you live so far away from a store.

Thanks for the info honey!

THIS IS THE BEST SEASON EVER FOR MAC!!!
Absolutely can't wait! I'm willing to spend on the exclusive, I'll probably get one of each depending on if the Mystery powder's success with my skin ( I'm NW45 or so and the MSF Deep Dark looked like mud). It also helps to have a B-day in between holidays. YAY!
But with all the posts on new exclusives- it gives us the advantage to plan. Imagine if we didn't have this information...

I agree! I hope some pics are posted soon, but it just seems that MAC is really making everyone wait soo long to post pics- I bet over seas they'll have the pics next month or in the fashion mags like with the Holiday Collection.

i'm very glad i don't want any of the holiday sets. i can save my money on them and get some of the couture stuff. i have a feeling the packaging will be gorgeous.
post #27 of 184
I want so many from this collection! Can't wait to see the pictures/actual products! I will be skipping most of the new collections/releases before MAC Couture.

I feel the exact same way! I will be passing on the holiday, and now that I see couture I am glad because I want most of those!

Do you know what kind of box it is? Any descriptions?
A box is such a vague description.. it could be a cardboard box for all I know.
post #30 of 184
Happy Birthday to me. No money and no way to get any of the MAC that comes out on my bday.

Oh well, big deal. I have enough anyway.

I will try to enjoy seeing what you all buy and have fun with!
