Well my idea of Hollywood glitz and glam for the new MAC Cine-matics Collection has gone out the window.
MAC Cine-matics Collection is the traditional MAC Nordstrom Exclusive Collection that will be released in July. The collection is sold exclusively at Nordstrom locations and I couldn’t help but think, “Gee, those who don’t have a Nordstrom store will be disappointed they have to order online…” but after seeing the collection I thought, “Gee, nothing here to be too disappointed about…”
The collection isn’t my personal bag and I sincerely believe MAC fans will feel an ickle disappointed as well. First off it seems like an economized collection as it lacks lipsticks, lipglasses, blushes, powders, etc…..it does include a range of duo shadows, lipstick bags, lip brush bags, and makeup lesson sets.
However, anyone who has been privy to MAC Nordstrom Exclusive Collections in the past will definitely feel like something is missing here. It’s been downsized in a major way…!
Take a look and tell me what you think.

Phew…I can honestly say looking at all this, I’m not impressed in the least and can safely skip it all. It’s a really scaled back version of the normal Nordstrom Exclusive release.
Even the makeup lesson sets fail to impress me.
What a dud.
Definitely not my personal idea of Hollywood glam.
