MAC Strength Collection

MAC Strength Collection is a collection to play up your strengths. Colour is a vehicle for women to flex their femininity, and MAC Strength Collection reflects this state of mind and style. It starts with dramatic eyes and lips pumped up with vivid colour to project power while cheeks are softly chiseled with natural tones. And, nailing it for overall presentation, MAC’s high-gloss Nail Lacquer.

    I actually really enjoy the ad for this line!
    While I’ll never be able to afford MAC, this is definitely a collection I’d swatch in stores :)


  • 12/17/12 22:07 BLee:

    Love the blush and lips and Ohhhh those arms!!!! 😀


  • 12/17/12 23:52 karrie:

    I would love to see swatches of the quads. The colors sound very nice.


    • 12/18/12 7:32 the Muse:

      already did a review and some swatches karrie of two of the quads, link is in the post, hope this helps.


      • 12/18/12 10:33 kandi:

        where is the link?


        • 12/18/12 10:58 the Muse:

          sorry what link kandi?


          • 12/18/12 11:10 Christine:

            I think Kandi’s referring to the link to your review/swatches of the e/s quads you said was embedded in this post … I can’t find it, either …

          • 12/18/12 12:01 the Muse:

            oh jeez sorry. I’m tired and yak today I thought she was talking about the loreal quads sorry about that kandi/christine!

    im a goner …..uh oh


  • 12/18/12 1:04 Tiffany Martin:

    I love the ad!!


  • 12/18/12 1:43 Faye:

    Ever since I love mac. I love their lipstick.


  • 12/18/12 2:26 SJ:

    I love the advertisement for this! I just wish I could tell whether or not that’s a liberal use of the liquify tool or not…


    • 12/18/12 11:36 Saffron:

      As a lady bodybuilder, I love the ad as well, but I’m confident there’s been a lot of ‘shop used here. Her skin is too smooth for someone with bodyfat that low, and her waist is too small for someone who otherwise has so much mass. She also appears to have no traps. I’m guessing they just full on pasted the model’s head onto someone else’s body parts.


      • 12/18/12 12:23 Ruth:

        thanks for pointing out that her waist was off. I kept looking at the pic and something bothered me but couldn’t put my finger on it. first thoughts that it was the trash bag dress but it’s the arms/face/waist imbalance.


  • 12/18/12 4:35 Shamim de Varax:

    the lippies and powder blushes look interesting here for my skintone. would love to see swatches =D


  • 12/18/12 10:17 Caitlin:

    Okay, that ad is kicking some serious butt. That is killer. The makeup isn’t calling me, but I’m not a matte lippie girl and I’m a little exhausted from holiday buying right now.


  • 12/18/12 10:17 Lorraine:

    Strong Woman is calling my name…


  • 12/18/12 10:31 Christina:

    I love this ad! I am a bodybuilder and train heavy on a daily basis, and I always say that the only “girlie” thing I enjoy is make-up! After swearing off department store make-up all these years, this ad almost tempts me enough to shell out the extra money. Way cool!


  • 12/18/12 11:03 Danielle:

    Those arms are crazy fake (and pretty scary cause that model looks tiny!) Pretty sure those shoulders, arms and hands aren’t hers!


  • 12/18/12 13:07 Miss D:

    Oh my- the black/glitter lipstick looks beautiful!


  • 12/18/12 15:30 Shelby:

    Party Parrot! Anyone know if this will be available at counters as well, not just the stand alone stores? My counter didn’t have the Iris Apfel collection


  • 12/18/12 16:52 Cynthia Ramirez:

    Firm Form! Yes! I neeeed that! Black lipstick with gold? Ahh!


  • 12/18/12 18:43 Felis:

    The model was commenting on another blog – that’s actually her, not `shopped. Even her waist is that small.

    That black lipstick is mine MINE MIIINE if it’s not too sheer.


  • 12/26/12 17:48 Anna:

    So I went to two Mac stores today and I was told this collection wont be out in stores until January 3rd. I also went to Nordstroms and they confirmed that they will also have this collection on the 3rd… sigh I am such a want it now kinda girl. Any one heard anything otherwise?


    • 12/26/12 18:16 the Muse:
