MAC Prêt-à-Papier Collection Spring 2010

Gosh golly, gee.. where the hell have I been? Well, I’m currently entering into a new editorial position at work, so I’ve been training and when I get home, all I feel like doing is diving into a big bowl of Moose Tracks ice cream and watching Marilyn Monroe flicks. Here I am, taking a look at what is new in the world of beauty and WOO-HOO! MAC unsurprisingly has three product launches while I am absent from blogging. Should we be excited? Take a look for yourself!


MAC says: Craft-paper couture – an inspired idea cut like a pattern and whipped up into a seamless spectrum of parchment-to-vellum beiges with an occasional, clever colour spill, coral among the most au courant. Avec Prêt-à-Papier, a new couture star is born!

Loving the mannequin model in this ad. The skin color is a bit strange and post mortem for my taste. Within the line are neutral shadows, but bolder lips and cheeks come into play. Love the whole “dressmaker” and  “seamstress” themes running throughout the titles.

These are creamy, highly pigmented colors especially for the eyes. Some people use them as eyeshadow primers, but I haven’t had much luck doing so with oily lids.
