MAC’s Euristocrats II collection is scheduled to release July 2nd (ha! Good one, MAC). Euristocrats (Euristocrats I, the original) released April 2nd of last year — to every region other than the U.S. Imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Euristocrats II includes 8 limited edition lipsticks ($14), 8 Dazzleglasses ($18. Date Night is already part of the permanent collection; Internationalist, Roman Holiday, and Local Colour will become permanent to MAC stores), and 4 lip pencils ($13) repromoted from the permanent line.
I feel pretty confident that the promo picture shows Saint Germain on the left and Cockney topped with Rue de Rouge on the right.
Date Night is plum with purple-blue sparkles. Euro Beat is coral with pink sparkles. Internationalist is pink with aqua-blue sparkles. Local Colour is the least sparkly of the group — pink with gold sparkles. Roman Holiday is rose-brown with pink and orange sparkles. Rue de Rouge is sheer cherry red with pink sparkles. Vie Veneto is lavender with blue sparkles — like Lavender Whip’s Dazzleglass cousin.
The lip pencils are regular, non-mechanical pencils from MAC’s permanent line. These come in 26 shades, but aren’t as soft as the Cremestick liners.
If, for some reason, you miss out on purchasing the lipstick of your dreams, don’t panic. All eight of these shades are permanent in Europe. Actually, the original Euristocrats collection included 16 lipsticks — the U.S. still hasn’t received Rue D’ Bois, Barcelona Red, Going Dutch, or Ramblas Red.
