MAC Suite Array

MAC’s Suite Array collection includes eight eyeshadow suites (duos, $16) and eight Pearlglide liners ($14.50). Suite Array officially comes on on September 25, along with Cremesheen lipsticks and Gold Fever, but it’s already available online.

The Pearlglide liners are really soft — softer than MAC’s Powerpoints. I guess I was coloring my arm a little too vigorously, because I broke the tip off Bankroll just trying to get a swatch. It would seem impossible to get a fine or precise line with these. If the colors remind you of UD 24/7 liners or the MAC Kohl Power liners, you’ve got a good memory. Pearlglide liners are water-resistant, but not waterproof.

MAC is showing its roots a bit with its Eyeshadow Suites. The eyeshadow duos come in sliding cases like you’ve probably seen in a Clinique gift-with-purchase (both Clinique and MAC are owned by Estee Lauder). I found these shadows to be generally low in pigmentation; Team Violets and Counterparts were most successful. I also did a few quick comparison swatches (definitely not comprehensive). To look back at any other MAC eyeshadow, you can search by name, using the search box at the top left corner of the page, or search by texture: Frost, Lustre, Matte, Matte², Satin, Starflash, Veluxe, Veluxe Pearl, or Velvet.

MAC Pearlglide liners: Black Russian, Molasses, Spare Change, Wolf, Fly-by-Blu, Fly by Blu, Fly by Blue, Bankroll, Rave, Miss Fortune
MAC Eyeshadow Suites: Rose Suites, Team Violets, Blue Zone, Ocean 2, Shallow v. Deep, Counterparts, Sweet Liason, Smoke & Ash, Smoke and Ash
Other MAC eyeshadows: Post Haste, Pen ‘n’ Pink, Pink Venus, Beauty Marked, Creme de Violet, Surreal, Steamy

    >thanks so much for the commentary. aside from the swatches which is always helpful, getting a better idea of how the product preforms is awesome. Looks like I’m gonna pass on this collection. If only MAC would release 1/2 as much “new” stuff but put all of the effort they do right now they would really have some earth shattering items. Oh well.

    >Saw a little preview of the liners at the MAC counter the other day – SA broke the tip off of Wolf doing a swatch for me. too bad – there are 2 or 3 that I think are pretty, but they are way too soft.
