MAC’s second big collection is a collaboration with clothing brand Lilly Pulitzer. I was surprised to learn about this collaboration; I hadn’t thought there was much overlap between MAC shoppers and Lilly Pulitzer shoppers. Nevertheless, this collection is spring bustin’ out all over — and contains a number of never-before-seen products.
To start with, there’s a new Pearlmatte eyeshadow trio ($19.50) and a Pearlmatte face powder ($27, and its four colors are presumably meant to be blended together). I don’t yet know what “pearlmatte” means.
There are also four shades of new formula Cremeblend Blush ($18.50): So Sweet, So Easy; Optimistic Orange; Joie-de-Vivre; and Florida. For now, this formula (and these shades) are limited edition only.
Three paintpots are being repromoted ($16.50): Bare Study, Rubenesque, and Fresco Rose. We’re also seeing two brushes repromoted, the 168 angled blush brush
($32) and the 239 shadow laydown brush
($24.50). There are also two repromoted permanent Technakohl (mechanical) eyeliner pencils: Graphblack, and Purple Dash — these are $14.50 each.
There are four springy new lipgelees ($14): Resort Life, Lush & Bright, Preppy, and Shift to Pink.
Finally, there are two polishes ($12): Coconut Ice (new and limited edition) and Steamy (a repromote from the permanent line).
Hopefully I’ll find all these items this weekend and we can look at swatches on Monday of next week.
