MAC All Ages, All Races, All Sexes

MAC has two new collections coming out this week. The first is hotly anticipated All Ages, All Races, All Sexes.

As mentioned in last week’s Sneak Peek, there are four lipsticks ($14): Equality (Lustre), Myself (Lustre), Empowered (Satin), and 5N (Lustre, and a repromote from the N collection). There are also four Lipglasses (also $14): Naked Frost, Glamour for All, Liqueur (which first appeared in Cult of Cherry), Spirit & Soul. Sorry for the typo in the swatch picture; I hate that.

MAC, All Ages, All Races, All Sexes, swatches, Equality, Myself, Empowered, 5N, Naked Frost, Glamour for All, Liqueur, Spirit & SoulThere are four eyeshadows ($14.50): ash-purple All Races, mauve-rose Banshee, which contains silver sparkles, wood-brown Cross-Cultural, and dark, cool, almost plummy brown Showstopper. Don’t let the Matte (or Lustre) finish of these eyeshadows stop you from buying them; they’re nice.

There are also two pigments (loose eyeshadows) in this collection, and there has already been a lot of internet rumbling about the new containers. The pigments are still $19.50 each, but the jars are slimmer, containing 4.5 g, instead of 7.4 g. This change in size actually affects ALL MAC pigments going forward: if you buy a pigment right now from MAC’s website, you’ll get the new packaging. If you want one of the old, larger containers, hit up your stores and counters while you still can.

Unfortunately, Rich Life was the one item I couldn’t find in my swatching adventures. (I left a space for it on my arm as I wandered from MAC counter to MAC counter.) Universal Mix is an oyster-gold highlight-type shade. The base isn’t quite as pigmented and dense as some other MAC pigments.

These are $18.50 each.

There’s a lot of brow stuff in All Ages, Races, Sexes, and to be honest it didn’t swatch very well. There’s a new brow pencil called the Impeccable Brow Pencil ($15); it comes in four shades. Black and Blonde should be self-explanatory. Taupe is actually rather dark. I’m a natural brunette who dyes her hair blonde and Dirty Blonde was the right brown for me.

But just between you and me, I was much more excited by the Penultimate Brow Marker ($16.50). It’s supposed to be one-shade-fits-most, and I thought it made for a really nice neutral, natural option.

    >I really like Myself, and maybe Glamour for All. These might be ones I should get to the counter to check out, instead of ordering online…

    >I think I am going to get rich life and leave the rest. I have to save for lillyland and spring forcast.

    >So if I have and like The Perfect Cheek and Blushbaby, is there any reason to get Personal Style? (Other than my habit of buying colors I like over and over, but I'm trying to break that one this year!). Thanks!

    >S: I don't think so. Stay strong!

    >I'll definitely be going to a counter to check out the brow products. I'm a bit shocked that I'm not all that interested in anything else…but perhaps that's a good thing. My wallet thanks you!

    >I love this collection on both of you. Perhaps it's really for all skintones!
