A few swatches and thoughts from M.A.C.'s Art Supplies Collection

This collection came out on April 1st in the U.S., and while I loooooooove the greasepaint sticks (seriously they were the best thing M.A.C. created in 2009!!), I don’t think you need to pick up every colour.  If you picked up the black one from the Style Black collection, or B (blue)or V (violet/purple) from the DSquared collection, you don’t need to pick these colours up from this collection.  They’re pretty close.  Also most of the colours are pretty dark, where Below Ground and Dirty are the only fairly light ones.  These GPSs make great bases and after they have set, they don’t crease or rub off.  Works especially well with mineralize eye shadows and those with oily lids.  They can also be used as liners or by themselves as eye shadows.  I hope M.A.C. makes these permanent! Ahem!…..M.A.C., yuh hearin’ me…!

Seriously, these are good, and I hope they bring out some lighter colours, along with some matte shades.

Top Row (L to R): Industrial, Petrol Blue, Undercurrent, GPS (L to R) - Slick Black, Below Ground, Brown Now, Greengrease, Charred Mauve, Zinc Zone, Dirty.

Must haves: Below Ground (this is a gorgeous bronze, great for summer and it replaces my Gentil Lentil shadestick), Zinc Zone (wonderful steely grey –  for the not black but sultry smokey eye).

Overall Grade: A-

(only because I wanted more variety!!!)


As for the Pearlglides, they are brightly pigmented and Petrol and are absolutely gorgeous.  I did not get any of them as they are NOT safe for use in the waterline !:-(

Overall Grade: B+

(Not waterline safe!)

I did not swatch the Prolongwear Lipstain Markers, because I heard a lot of not so good reviews on them. Apparently they don’t last that long at all and you have to wear a lip balm underneath as they are super drying…so they were a no go for me.  I think there are cheaper alternatives like the Covergirl markers or the ones from Avon’s Mark line.

For my Trinis: These should be coming out within the next 2 weeks or so at the M.A.C. store at West Mall.  Usually the collections come out on a Saturday, so call to find out, cuz they will sell out early!!!! Doh say ah didn’t warn yuh!!!

Until next time….laters!!!!!

M.A.C. Art Supplies Collection

Hey gals!!!

So M.A.C. is coming fast and furious with their collections.  Seriously, they bring out a collection at least once every two weeks!!! Bad for the wallet, but ah still lovin’ it!!!  The next collections are right up my alley, bold vibrant colours, great for spring, summer and de blazin’ heat in Trinbago!!!!!!

Art Supplies

I mentioned in one of my previous posts, that the M.A.C. greasepaints were one of the BESS products for 2009!!! This is what the shadesticks were supposed to be…super creamy, highly pigmented, and great as a base or used alone as shadow.  So M.A.C. brings back the GPS in a variety of colours.  Love the packaging, love the colours even more! OMG, I am super excited!!!!!!!!!! But get them fast, they’ll be around for a limited time.  I sincerely hope that M.A.C. eventually makes them permanent, just like they did for the Dazzleglasses (which were super popular). Especially since they have discontinued a lot of the shadesticks.
