Upcoming for MAC Summer (And Some Spring) 2015 – MAC is Beauty, Huggable Lips, Pro Longwear Waterproof & More!

Hey everyone!

First of all I do want to apologize for the absence on here as life just got way too busy. To the point that these days I would say I’m a little out of touch with every nitty-gritty release within the beauty realm and only keep tabs on major brand releases because, well, those are a little hard to miss.

Thus, attending these little preview/catchup beauty sessions are really quite liberating. It’s like being in the know once more, catching up with brand peeps I’ve worked with a long time and also playing with makeup all at the same time.

Boy, do I miss that amidst the current work-work-baby-baby sort of lifestyle. I’m losing touch of that frivolous beauty admiring self, a little. Just a little…

But anyway!

We’re not here to talk about me but rather these upcoming MAC Spring/Summer collections so let’s get to it!

Before I go into detail about the upcoming collections I’ll say that these are coming out pretty fast and furious (with one launching later this week and the rest in subsequent weeks) so get ready to prepare your heart and wallet for these!

Unlike before, I don’t have many swatches or detailed snaps of the collections for you and lighting kinda sucks as well but I didn’t have another way around it – sorry guys!

Though wait for my detailed product post about the pieces I’ve gotten from each collection because that would have better lighting, pictures and swatches, I’m sure!

Enough talk, let’s get started with the soonest release first and work our way to the back!

 

MAC is Beauty –

Available 24th April 2015 at all MAC locations

So, if my facts are right this collection isn’t entirely new-new but considerably so to the International market. If I remember right, the MAC is Beauty Collection was first released in South Korea last year and made its way to the International markets this year.

The release date isn’t of importance but that info does give you some idea on where this collection is coming from, focused on color trends within South Korea, which would explain the soft cutesy pastel approach it takes along with some vibrant pinks because we know Koreans love their pop of lip color, paired with clean and soft luminous skin.

One more thing you might want to know about the collection before I continue is that it is huge.

Like 48 piece collection kind of HUGE.

The entire collection rundown consists of 12 lip colors, 16 Fluidlines, 4 Eyeshadows, 4 Creamsheen Glass, 3 Nail Lacquers, 2 beauty powders as well as an assortment of some brushes, liners, mascaras and such!

I didn’t manage to get shots of everything within the collection, because not all of it was present, so here’s some press visuals for (better) representation of some pieces.

Now, a couple of shots I took during the preview.

While the collection can be a little overwhelming given how huge it is, I honed in on the lip products (lipsticks, really) with the visually pleasing array of milky soft shades. Though the winners for me would really be the stronger and more vibrant colors like Silly and Diva-ish, those 2 shades are gorgeous!

The Fluidlines are pretty too especially with all the glass pots placed together like this but, unlike the Lipsticks where all the shades are Limited Edition, the Fluidlines are permanent shades.

Nonetheless, it’s a good time to get acquainted with them if you’re always overlooking the Fluidlines!

Huggable Lip Color –

Available 8th May at Sephora, 9th May at Ngee Ann City and Bugis. 15th May at all MAC locations.

Next up on the launch pad is the MAC Huggable Lip Color collection!

Well, the Huggable Lip Color collection is actually launching in the same time frame as the Pro Longwear Waterproof but nevermind that, let me talk about these lippies before we get all about that base (about that base…. okay, I’ll stop).

So, Huggables!

P4130009

I don’t believe that this is the first time MAC is putting out their Huggable range of lip colors, I think the Huggables have been introduced prior but this is my first time giving the range a look and a go.

MAC has a tendency of launching some ‘aside‘ lip collections and I can’t really keep up with those – the Mineralize Rich Lipsticks and Marcel Wander Lipsticks.

So, comparing the Huggables to their usual range of lipstick finishes, I would say these do stand on their own ground where finish and wear is concerned.

P4130011

MAC describes the Huggables as a lasting , glossy finish which I think sums them up loosely but there are more aspects to this semi-sheer and glossy lipstick that seems to hug the lips like a balm once on.

I’ll share more about them in my detailed post to come but for now, I will let you know that I’ve been quite obsessed about these fellas!

P4130012

P4130013

This release is accompanied by 10 lip shades which sees a nice mix of soft neutrals as well as color kickers that range from pink, to reds and oranges. You’ll find a little something for yourself, I’m sure!

There were only 9 colors available during the preview and I have them swatched below but due to their semi-sheer finish I can’t quite put a name to the swatches right now – oops – so the best thing to do is check these out for yourself when they launch!

P4130014

P4130016

While it is launching 15th May islandwide, it will first reach Sephora ION on the 8th of May and Ngee Ann City as well as Bugis on the 9th of May, complete with the Huggable bear pictured above!

Items in this collection:

  • Huggable Lip Color in Bare Hug (S$30)
  • Huggable Lip Color in Dramatical (S$30)
  • Huggable Lip Color in Soft Talking (S$30)
  • Huggable Lip Color in I’m Game (S$30)
  • Huggable Lip Color in Love Feeling (S$30)
  • Huggable Lip Color in I’m In (S$30)
  • Huggable Lip Color in Play It Soft (S$30)
  • Huggable Lip Color in Glamorized (S$30)
  • Huggable Lip Color in Flaming Lips (S$30)
  • Huggable Lip Color in Fashion Force (S$30)

 

Pro Longwear Waterproof Foundation –

Available 8th May at Sephora, 9th May at Ngee Ann City and Bugis. 15th May at all MAC locations.

I’ll be honest and say that the recent MAC foundation releases (fairly recent at least) have got me a little confused because where my MAC foundation knowledge is concerned, it’s still stuck in the early eras when I first got into MAC.

After all, I never got around to learning the A-Zs of their foundations because I was always distracted by collections so frankly, I’m still learning about their new foundation / concealer releases as I go but what’s easy to understand about this is that Pro Longwear Waterproof is like an upgraded more nourishing, lasting, and of course waterproof version of the Pro Longwear.

If you’re a Pro Longwear die-hand fan, fret not because Pro Longwear Waterproof is an add-on to the range and the original version will not be discontinued (…. yet? heh).

P4130003

This foundation could be a little confusing given it’s longwearing (usually suited for oily/combination skin) yet there’s that word ‘nourishing’ within the name which makes one think it’s richer and more suited for dry skin.

Though according to MAC, it’s suppose to be able to fit most skintypes be it if you’re dry, oily, or combination.

Upon swatching the formula on my hands I will say that it goes on rather watery and creamy first and sets quite quick but doesn’t leave that cakey crepe-y look that some heavier and longer wearing foundations do. I can’t speak for wear time and performance yet but I’ll be sure to check back with you all!

P4130002

P4130007

The Pro Longwear Waterproof launch is paired with a Pro Longwear Compact Powder.

Now, as I had said about my limited MAC foundation knowledge, I’munsure about whether this is a new introduction or a re-promote along with this base collection but eitherways, this compact seems to function like a touch up powder though I’m sure you could choose to use it at the start of the day too, your choice.

I don’t have much of an impression of this guy just yet as I only did a quick swatch of it at the preview so I’ll have to go it a go and see what I find!

P4130004

Now, the all important question is how many shades does Pro Longwear Waterproof come in and how many are we bringing in?

Well, this range has 16 shade selections and I believe we will be getting all of them at our counters – yay!

I can’t wait to give the foundation a go and share my thoughts about it soon!

It feels and sounds really promising so far, for the whole full day at work in a cold and dry air condition environment coupled with humid and hot lunch breaks.

Items in this collection:

  • Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation (S$62)
  • Pro Longwear Powder Pressed (S$44)
  • 193 Angled Brush (S$62)
  • 135 Large Flat Brush (S$83)

 

MAC Wash & Dry –

Availability sometime in June – to be confirmed.

Now, this is a collection I have very little information on because the launch period is still a little ways away (yes, phew finally a little breathing space between collections) in June but I’ve got some visuals on some of the products so I thought I would let you have a look.

I’ll be giving this collection a more detailed look again in May when MAC has more press pieces on hand to show so I’ll likely give you another update to come!

But for now, here’s the group shot!

P4130028

The perfect collection for Summer with all the gold gleams and coral hues, I can already tell that I’ll be so in love with the pieces from this collection just by looking at the lipstick shades, that beautiful highlighter (I think?) and the veluxe pearl eyeshadow palette.

After the introduction to Bao Bao’s Jewels, I’ve come to love MAC’s Veluxe Pearl Eyeshadow finish even if it means living with some sparkly bits of fallout on my cheekbones.

That pearl glint and the hi-shine finish of these shadows are to-die-for!

And did I already mention the summery coral lipstick hues?

P4130029

I think I did… but aren’t those 2 lip colors just so vibrant and fun!

P4130030

P4130031

Well, to be fair I didn’t get to swatching any of these so I’m not sure how they perform on but they do look promising and if anything it’s a collection I’d say to keep your sights on!

I can’t decide how I feel about the whole tie-dye gradient sort of a look to the packaging but it’s fun, bright and tropical enough for the whole Summer theme that I’m just going to let it slide.

So, more information about this hopefully soon!

Items in this collection:

  • Unsure of the full line-up yet!

And there you go!

A really quick rundown of the collections I managed to preview earlier this week! I hope I didn’t end up rambling too much because I haven’t been proof-reading my entries too much these days; I hardly have time to write already!

I have some pieces from the collections mentioned above and I can’t wait to share about them though I know it’s a bit of a challenge to churn like before so I’m not even sure when I can get those posts up but hopefully it wouldn’t be too far away from their launch dates!

Gah, I really do miss spamming this space and you guys with entries but… oh well, life happens!

 

Eitherways, thanks for sticking around and stay tuned you guys!

Ready Yourself! A Look At MAC’s SS2015 Collections – Cinderella, Toledo, Bao Bao Wan, Julia Petit, Miley Viva Glam & More!

Hey all!

So, I had the great and really overwhelming (but awesomely so) opportunity to preview a whole slew of collections coming soon to MAC Singapore and the best part is that the release date of these aren’t too far off either!

As they say, MAC’s Collections just keep coming!

IMG_9012

The reason I indicate MAC Singapore above is because some collections are already launched in the US (namely Viva Glam Miley I believe, and MAC Toledo) but we haven’t gotten them yet though they’ll be out soon, real soon!

In the meanwhile though, I thought I would just throw all the snapshots I took of that wondrous evening into this one long rambly MAC article. I didn’t manage to snap / swatch every single item across all collections else that would have qualified for individual posts but, my phone was dying so… this ramble overview will just have to do!

I think I have enough snaps and information to give you an idea of what’s to come at least and MAC had sent us back with an assortment of items which I hope to get to featuring soon!

I hate to constantly bring up New Job but given how it’s looming so closely now, just 2 weeks away – or even less, I feel like I’m working against the clock getting all I want to say up before that deadline.

So anyway, here’s a look at the collections! Starting from the soonest to be released to the latest!

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus

Available: 15th February at all MAC Counters

I’ll first say that I’m no fan of Miley, though I’m not sure why I even bother disclaiming that but I’ll admit that when I first caught wind of her collaboration with MAC, I was a little perplexed. I mean, she’s so controversial… right?

But then again MAC has always embraced controversy and ran with it, and also succeed might I add, so I shouldn’t be surprised but Miley or not, I’ll say one thing and that is the Viva Glam Campaign from MAC is a good one and aimed to help a cause – find a cure for AIDS.

If you’ve been into MAC for awhile, you’ll know that all profits from the sales of Viva Glam lipsticks (and glosses) go towards the MAC Aids Fund so… there’s really nothing better than buying a beautiful lipstick for yourself and supporting a cause at the same time.

IMG_9042

So, onto the Miley duo, I’ll come back with more information and swatches about it but I’ll say that while I can’t agree with some of Miley’s entertainment choices, I think we’re on the same page with lip colors gurl~

Miley Cyrus’s Viva Glam lipstick features a vibrant, relatively neutral actually, pink in an Amplified cream finish. The best finish in terms of comfort and pigmentation from MAC, I feel.

The gloss on the other hand is a little glitter bomb featuring a sheer hot pink base color with tons of shimmer thrown in. Absolutely stunning!

As said, I’ll get back to this in another post before I get carried away here so… moving on!

Items in this collection:

  • Viva Glam Lipstick in Miley Cyrus
  • Viva Glam Lipglass in Miley Cyrus

MAC x Cinderella Collection

Available: 26th February at TANGS, 6th March islandwide

Well, I can’t say we weren’t expecting this after hearing about the upcoming Cinderella live action movie and knowing MAC’s past stints and collections or should I say collaboration with Disney films.

IMG_9022

I didn’t manage to capture many shots of the Cinderella collection while at the preview because I think I got a bit distracted by other stuff after shooting these quick snaps but overall I’ll say this collection is quite lovely.

It’s soft and it’s easy to wear overall with a neutral brown palette, beige lip options (lipstick and lipglass) along with some lovely iridescent powders to bring that effortless Disney princess glow to live or maybe the beauty powder for this natural color to the cheeks.

Though there is one thing that you might want to keep a look out for from this collection and its the MAC Studio Eye Gloss, available in 2 color options.

IMG_9020

While the term Eye Gloss sounds highly editorial and a little unfit for us regular people to don even for functions and evenings, I was mildly surprised at how much potential these eye glosses have.

They could actually work!

They’re dense and incredibly sticky, which sounds a little uncomfortable though I can’t say because I did not try it out, but they really stick and hold to the skin once you pat it on! The effect they give is the same glossy, shimmery, editorial sort of lids that glistens as it catches the light.

If anything, if you do have this immense curiosity to don that runway look of glossy shiny eyes then this is where you can start!

Items in this collection:

  • Lipstick in Free As A Butterfly (S$33)
  • Lipstick in Royal Ball (S$33)
  • Lipglass in Happily Ever After (S$33)
  • Lipglass in Glass Slipper (S$33)
  • Eyeshadow Palette in Stroke of Midnight, 6 colors (S$80)
  • Eye Gloss in Lightly Taupe (S$45)
  • Eye Gloss in Pearl Varnish (S$45)
  • Fluidline in Little Black Bow (S$33)
  • Fluidline in Macroviolet (S$33)
  • Iridescent Pressed Powder in Coupe D’Chic (S$46)
  • Glitter in Reflects Pearl (S$45)
  • Pigment in Evil Stepmother (S$45)
  • Pigment in Pretty it Up (S$45)
  • Studio Fix Lash in Boldblack (S$35)
  • Beauty Powder in Mystery Princess (S$46)

MAC Penciled In

Available: 27th February at Tangs, 1st March islandwide

This is a collection that is rather exciting because first of all, it’s all about the lips and the hot favorites from the lips (as far as MAC goes) at that!

Next, this collection is going to be permanent!

IMG_9039

Well, a good part of it is permanent already and I’m talking about the lipsticks featured within. What MAC had gone ahead to do is pick out some of their most popular lip shades and created a matching lipliner (as close as possible) for it, how awesome is that!

IMG_9038

Most times, if you’re an avid lip liner user, you’ll have to go with something nude if you can’t find an exact match or close match to your lipstick, what’s more lip liners usually get forgotten about and it’s not often that you get 3 – 4 tones of reds for lip liners so I think this collection is quite genius.

IMG_9026

IMG_9030

You can now prep your lips with a lip liner that matches the deep purple hued lipstick you’re thinking to use, isn’t that exciting?

Taking it a step further, MAC had also launched complimenting lip glasses for the 3 most popular shades (across the lip color genre) – Ruby Woo, Candy Yum Yum and Heroine.

Excites!

Did I already mention that this is permanent? ;)

Items in this collection (not mentioning lipsticks):

  • Lip Pencil in Edge to Edge (S$29)
  • Lip Pencil in Fruit Cocktail (S$29)
  • Lip Pencil in Chic Trick (S$29)
  • Lip Pencil in Talking Points (S$29)
  • Lip Pencil in Follow Your Heart (S$29)
  • Lip Pencil in Nightingale (S$29)
  • Lip Pencil in Candy Yum Yum (S$29)
  • Lip Pencil in Cyber World (S$29)
  • Lip Pencil in Ruby Woo
  • Lip Pencil in Rosy Rim (S$29)
  • Lip Pencil in Heroine (S$29)
  • Lip Glass in Candy Yum Yum (S$30)
  • Lip Glass in Heroine (S$30)
  • Lip Glass in Ruby Woo (S$30)

MAC x Isabel & Ruben Toledo

Available: March islandwide (I’m assuming 1st?)

Well, well, do I even need to explain more about this collection?

If you haven’t heard or seen it then maybe you’ve been a little busy with work, or perhaps just came back from a relaxed holiday away from the internet because the MAC x Toledo collection seems to be all the rage across all beauty blogs (namely the US ones) over the past month.

I’ll do some quick backstory and introductions for the benefit of those who truly do not know / don’t care to know maybe… but the reason for the whacky and graphic prints as well as the rather diversed color selections across this collection is because the Toledo collection is a collaborative work from MAC with both Isabel and Ruben Toledo, a husband and wife design team.

The husband, Ruben, is an artist (from illustrator to sculptor) while Isabel has a keen eye for fashion and colors. Together they work well together and their relationship has a sweet backstory too from the high school sweet heart days.

IMG_9013

So, moving on from that the Isabel & Ruben Toledo collection sees an injection of spunk and color unique to the couple and I enjoy the graphic yet slightly fashion-y imagery of this collection.

IMG_9081

The color options within are really fun too as we see MAC bring back their famed Ombre blushes, of which 2 were wildly popular ones – Azalea Blossom and Ripe Peach.

What I particularly like about the collection is the multiple options of red where the lips are concerned and while some may find that a bit repetitive (why not more color options and less red?), I think it’s an interesting move. What’s more there is a story to it as well, given Isabel’s love for red lip colors.

IMG_9078

IMG_9080

That’s evident from Ruben’s illustration of her on the Toledo packaging as well. Yes, the graphic and abstract profile is his illustration take on his wife Isabel.

IMG_9066

IMG_9075

I have a couple of pieces from this collection to show but it’s really only a miniscule showcase compared to the size of the collection so I do suggest you to head down and swatch up a storm once this collection launches!

The packaging is quite an adorable one with a matte feel (eeks, matte and white, I’m a bit scared though) instead of MAC’s usual glossy cases.

Items in this collection:

  • Eye Palette in Bellgreens (S$75)
  • Eye Palette in Violentwink (S$75)
  • Eye Palette in Moodyblu (S$75)
  • Modern Twist Lash in Vynil Black (S$40)
  • Modern Twist Lash in Calligrafy Navy (S$40)

  • Makeup Bag (S$50)

Oops, now that’s quite a list huh!

MAC x Bao Bao Wan

Available: 6th March Ngee Ann City and Robinsons Orchard. 12th March at TANGS Orchard

Firstly, this collection isn’t going to be available islandwide so if you’re interested in checking it out or picking up some pieces, do note the released locations above!

IMG_9031

So… I’m sure most, like me prior, may not have an idea who Bao Bao Wan is. If you do, that’s great, but if not she’s a rather established Jewelry Designer hailing from China and also part socialite as she’s been seen at big name events and such.

After learning about her, I searched her up and will say that her jewelry pieces are quite exquisite and most of which look incredibly premium and up-market so it’s only right that her collaboration with MAC reflects the same with its sleek matte packaging that interestingly enough appears a bronzey-pewter but has soft green reflects within.

IMG_9032

The eyeshadow palette is really a work of art with its gold rims and the sparkly mix of eyeshadows within. I was kindly provided the eyeshadow palette (Bao Bao’s Jewels, no kidding) within my press pack and can’t wait to attempt a look for you guys.

I’m a little worried at the amount of shimmer involved but… when you gotta shine you gotta shine, right? Ha!

IMG_9033

IMG_9037

IMG_9034

The rest of the collection is quite lovely too, from the lipsticks to the polishes and the beauty powder. Overall I think that the assortment within this collection (and the packaging of course) is quite nicely done and definitely worth a look!

Items in this collection:

  • Lipstick in Forbidden Sunrise (S$33)
  • Lipstick in Lavender Jade (S$33)
  • Lipstick in Romantic Breakdown (S$33)
  • Lipstick in Burmese Kiss (S$33)
  • Eyeshadow Palette in Bao Bao’s Jewels (S$75)
  • Beauty Powder in Summer Opal (S$46)
  • Nail Lacquer in Kashmir Blue (S$25)
  • Nail Lacquer in Imperial Green (S$25)
  • Nail Lacquer in Sunset Tourmaline (S$25)

MAC x Julia Petit

Available: 20th March at TANGS Orchard, Sephora, ION Orchard and Ngee Ann City

Phew, okay, last collection that I have on hand to preview right now. Are you guys still with me? I know it’s been quite a long post so let me just run through this one a little and wrap it up!

While I forgot to snap an overview shot for you guys, I did do a little more swatching for this collection (thankfully I did so as I only have a piece to showcase in detail) so I hope the pictures are helpful!

IMG_9050

Another quick introduction, Julia Petit is rather renowned Brazilian Blogger. Again, not someone I am in the know of but I assume if you’re rather into fashion and such you may have heard of her along the way.

IMG_9051

Being a beauty junkie herself, Julia did put a good amount of thought into the collection and products. Instead of going out there with all sorts of colors, Julia wanted her collection to be practical for women of all skintones and across all climates. She’s all about textures, mixing and matching of them as well as transforming a look with it so that’s what you’ll see through her pieces.

IMG_9047

IMG_9048

IMG_9060

IMG_9049

IMG_9062

I think the simplicity and practicality of her ideals does show through and yet it doesn’t compromise entirely on color and offerings too as you can put together a very wearable sweep of colors on the lids, a crisp flick of a liquid liner and bold matte colors on the lips.

IMG_9052

IMG_9055

I think that’s quite a polished yet wearable and practical look and probably what Julia wanted to achieve and share with the world! Or ‘the sisterhood’, as she says.

Items in the collection:

  • Lipstick in Boca (S$33)
  • Lipstick in Petite Red (S$33)
  • Lipstick in Açai (S$33)
  • Lipglass in Purpurine (S$33)
  • Liquidlast Liner in Wet Road (S$34)
  • Morganite Eyeshadow Duo (S$49)
  • Sagu Eyeshadow Duo (S$49)
  • Moving Sand Eyeshadow Duo (S$49)
  • Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel (S$36)
  • Prep + Prime Finishing Powder (S$44)
  • Powder Blush in Linda (S$42)

So, wow, there you go!

This wraps up my really lengthy and part rambly preview of some MAC collections to come! It’s hardly indepth and it’s just skimming the surface of them all but I figured that if I were to go into too much detail this post would end up being a novel!

As mentioned, I do have some pieces of various collections on hand so I’ll get to talking about them in more detail in upcoming posts and perhaps feature some looks / swatches of them to come!

 

Thanks for reading!

Tell me, are you excited for any of the collections? What are some products you’re eyeing?
