MAC Heatherette

MAC Heatherette is live on the website (CLICK!)!


This is long awaited by MAC fans and very exciting although I must say that I disagree with all the hype simply because MAC Fafi was the holy grail Collection for me personally.

MAC Fafi for me had a better color selection and had more WOW then Heatherette is offering. Of course this doesn’t stop me from wanting a majority of this color story but for me MAC Fafi was much better and I think many of you agree with that after scoring some of Fafi for yourself!

The lippies in Fafi were bold and exciting where as the Heatherette lipsticks are a bit of a nude mix up. For a round girl like me I avoid nude lippies like the plague less they make my face rounder than it already is!

The palettes are lovely in this collection and I’m very excited about the gorgeous double ended liners (a first for MAC I believe?).

All in all it’s a nice lot of goodies but for me Fafi remains a true love!

My list of wants:

All the eyeliner pencils!
1 lippie maybe?
2 lipglasses maybe?
All the Beauty Powders for sure!
Pink Pearl Piggie

I can’t help but be a tiny bit disappointed. I wanted a bit more from this collection but the good news is I got the “bit more” from MAC Fafi!

How about you?

Loving this collection?

What are you thinking of getting?

Loved MAC Fafi more?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hey honey!

    My MA says that it will only come to Singapore in July/August!!! OMG!!!

    Have u seen the packaging? I mean the box as well! So pretty! I want both the palettes because of this!

    I’ll get 2 palettes, 1 or maybe both beauty powders, Silver Glitter, maybe even the Reflects Transparent Gold too, 1 or both pigments and maybe a few liners. I don’t think I’ll get the lippies because I hate MAC lipglosses (the whole flyaway-hair-on-my-lips thing makes me dread MAC lipglasses) but I may change my mind when I see them in person. =D

    Oh how I wish it’d hit counters tomorrow instead of Thursday! I’ll be heading out to CA on the 20th and won’t be able to get near a store that sells MAC for a few days. Hope they don’t sell out!

    BTW, Muse, did you get the half-baked email from UD about the “UK exclusive”? Maybe those shades have never been boxed together here in the US, but there’s nothing exclusive about any of the products!

  • couturesista

    Hello, I didn’t enjoy to much of the FAFI. I did purchase the makeup bag. I really just likes the characters. The colors didn’t wow me. I’m so looking forward to Heatherette though. I love the packaging and there’s a pink shade lipstick called Hollywood that I want to rock for summer evenings out partying! Hopefully theres other goodies too! Oh yeah I want the face powders and brushes too!

  • the Muse

    hey cosine 😉

    Miss ya!

    AH! NO! July?! August?! That’s way too far away! Can’t be! I’d have thought at the latest May!? my god!

    I love the packaging! So pretty. Although the colors are meh meh but still loving the compacts for sure!

    I think I want the two as well and maybe both bps too. I have reflects gold so I can skip that!

    LOL! flyaway hair on my lips so true. MAC lipglasses are a magnet for stray hair hehe!

    I hope you guys get them before summer 🙁 that’s too far away!



  • the Muse

    hiya taryn!

    damn! order online 😉 It’ll be waiting for you when you get home but then again these really need to have a look at color wise I guess!

    don’t worry it won’t sell out that fast I don’t think!

    LOL! yes LMAO! I was thinking of you as I read it. UD is on crack cocaine again with those crazy exclusve emails! Stila does the same with the dumb Asia Only collections lmao!

    LMAO big fat deal some shadows we already have stuck in a box with a primer, mascara, and a gloss whoopdee do da!

    going to CA for pleasure or biz?

    take me with u take me with u!

  • the Muse

    hiya couturesista!

    Really? I loved Fafi for some reason 🙂

    I want that shade you’re talking about! It looks quite gorgeous 😉

    face powders are def on my list too!


    Thanks for the comment!

  • Allysia-May

    Ahh, this is more like it for me. Absolutely hated FAFI and when this comes out in the UK, i’ll go check it out.

    This is MAC’s last chance to redeem itself for me. I love all the nude colours as i don’t like colours that distract from the rest of my skin.

    From what i see, i’ll certainly be getting all the eye liners and probably 2 lipglosses. Beauty powder maybe? Not sure.

  • BeautyChick101

    I agree that it’s not as stunning as I was hoping! I need to check it all out in person but from the website it definitely doesn’t look as amazing as I wanted it to!

  • Anonymous

    Fafi was awesome! This color story is not as pretty to me. I think the Fafi colors were more exciting and different, Heatherette just looks toooo pink and girly. I don’t know if I want anything except for 1 double edged pencil. What is the next collection?

  • PaoPao

    Hi Muse!

    I don’t like the palettes (ONLY 3 colors???!!!!), I already have Jardin Aires piggy, and definitely pink eye shadows aren’t for me… I’ll take a look at the glitters… and that’s all!

  • the Muse

    hey Allysia-May!

    Wow! Another Fafi Hater! I can’t believe it *sobs* I loved Fafi 🙂

    What’s the release date for the UK?

    Lots of nude to pick from here for sure. I can’t wear nudes. Makes me look terribly fat and I def don’t need that lol!

    I’m loving the liners, glosses and the bps too!


  • the Muse

    hey beautyChick!

    I def need to see it in person first maybe it’ll be much better. I want it regardless b/c mac is crack but it’s not nearly as beautiful as fafi for me!


  • the Muse

    hiya kelly!

    I concur! I am loving fafi! I def want some of this still but fafi has my heart!

    I love pink and girly so I’m all over it for that reason 🙂 but color wise it’s kinda boring a bit. Yawn.

    Next up:
    Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15
    Naughty Nauticals
    Neo Sci-Fi
    Solar Field
    Future Earth

    A few things we have to look forward to in April/May!

    Thanks for the comment 😉

  • the Muse

    hi PaoPao! *huge hugs*

    I know 🙁 The palettes are a bit different for mac aren’t they? Oh well!

    I already have JA piggie myself which I love but I wish they had released a new pink piggie aside from the pink pearl!

    The glitters i probably will skip as it’s just too big for me to use it all you know?

    I def want the eyeliners and a few glosses and maybe a lippie or two!

    When is the release in Spain?

  • Allysia-May

    Hey hun

    Called the girls at the local MAC counter and no date for UK has been giving to them. Either that or they just don’t know. So much releases coming from MAC and if they dont get this one right, i wont be bothered with checking up on any of their other collections as its a journey for me just to go to a MAC counter.

    But yea, looking forward to the nudes, lol. I don’t think nudes wouuld make you look fat, it’s all in the mind’s eye babe.

  • the Muse

    hey Allysia-May!

    How are you sunshine?!

    I was talking to rows today about heatherette, she’s in England too, and she was saying how it’s a yawn when it finally does release your side!

    Grrr! So troublesome!

    aww thanks hun! I dunno i just can’t get into nudes for some reason 😉


  • nilla cookie

    I was on a pretty good Fafi high, who knows what I’ll think of Heatherette. We’ll see.. I’ll probably end up like at least something. The dual pencils look cool and so do the lashes!!

  • the Muse

    hey lil!

    I loved Fafi 🙂

    The dual pencils are fab I think you’ll like ’em!

    Can’t wait to see if you haul any of this!
