MAC Love Lace

MAC, Love Lace, promoYesterday we took a look at MAC’s “warm” post-holiday collection, Warm & Cozy; today: Love Lace. Both of these collections release on December 26.

Love Lace offers four eyeshadows ($14.50): Pincurl (a repromote from Blonde, Brunette, Redhead), Hypnotizing, Love Lace, and Suave Intentions.

Despite being a Frost, Pincurl is a matte ash or smoke with a tinge of purple. Hypnotizing (Frost) is a greyed violet. Love Lace (Veluxe Pearl) is a marine blue, not quite navy; Suave Intentions (Veluxe Pearl) is a bright, lagoon blue.

There are also four Love Lace kohls (all $14.50). Fascinating (matte white) is a regular Eye Kohl — it’s also part of the permanent line. Sense of Style (blackened blue), Raven (blackened burgundy), and Feline (really black) are Kohl Power pencils, and are limited edition. We’ve seen Raven and Feline before; Sense of Style is a new shade.

I feel totally vindicated, because at last year’s post-holiday collection, Chill, I inadvertently swatched Viva Glam VI SE lipgloss instead of Icescape. My counter had either sold out of Icescape or never received a tester, and they placed VGVI SE in the display, rather than leave a gap. This year, Icescape has been repromoted, so I got a second chance.

The second Lipglass is newcomer Utterly Discrete (Utterly Discreet?), a sheer brown or brown-purple gloss with purple sparkles.

Pretty Please lipstick (Lustre) is a repromote from the permanent line; Intricate (Frost) is new — both are quite sheer. MAC’s lipsticks and glosses are $14 each.

There’s also a new, limited edition nail polish ($12): Light Affair. It’s a light, light, sliiiiiightly purple grey creme.

    I like the lip products from Warm and Cozy but am loving the eye shadows and pencils from Love Lace!

    Hypnotizing (Was this super duper frosty?), love lace, sense of style are my must buys!

    >I am pleased to say that I only like two items shown – Love Lace e/s and Sense of Style pencil…yay I'm actually moved by a MAC collection – I haven't felt interest since Style Black in September!

  • Victoria says:

    >Uh oh…. I'm looking at Hypnotizing and I think its going to break my one day long no-buy XD

  • labyorkie says:

    >The official MAC pics were not at all tempting to me. Then I saw your swatches.

    Now I am debating Love Lace and Suave Intentions. I have about a week to see if I have any shadows that look similar in order to avoid buying these. Two liners (Raven and Sense of Style), on the other hand, are definite purchases for me.

    >the swatch of hypnotizing looks very pretty

  • Tree says:


    I was wondering whether you'd be willing to swatch the Trish Mcevoy shadows? That would be enormously useful!


  • almondsandapples says:

    >Gah, SO many of those eye kohls look amazing! I definitely want to give Hypnotizing and Love Lace a try. I think Light Affair looks really pretty too, even if it isn't exactly bright. Maybe this winter I'll finally be able to step awaayyy from the neons :P
