MAC Pret a Papier Collection Photos

Mmm ok. MAC Pret a Papier so does not appeal to me, colors look kinda meh. But I gotta say I simply adore the promo model! I can’t help but think Kim Cattrall a la Mannequin right?

Dudes, I sweated Hollywood so bad! He’s the reason my best friend is gay. I so needed a gay BFF after seeing Mannequin. It was a matter of accessorizing! Kiddin’, kiddin’! But seriously MAC Pret a Papier really has that mannequin look and feel!

    OMG Muse! You are so Funny! I loved that movie soooo much. Pls tell me if you ever find those Hollywood glasses…I so need to buy this movie..as for the collection im blah about it

    • the Muse

      LOL Jasmine me too! even the second part was good, corny but good. LOL elton john has quite the collection 😀

      My friend Jai and I have seen this movie a million times together! HOLLLLYWOODDDDD! ya collection doesn’t call me either sad sigh! but that’s ok Spring Forecast is a rockin’ my socks right off my little feet!

  • Brandon

    yay, new paint pot! 🙂

    That being said, this is a collection that makes me go “huh?” though. Like i think its only around to introduce the new pencils.

    And I like how that purple eyeshadow really came out of nowhere lol

    • the Muse

      gasp brandon hi long time no speakie 🙂

      how are you.

      Yup same here…kinda eh? LOL ya me too BAM purple!

  • Marsha

    MAC has had a lot of nuetral collections lately. Warm and Cozy, All Ages,All Races,All Sexes, and now this. Nothing really jumps out to me.

    • the Muse

      me either marsha…meh! I like the neutral/naturals but this one is kinda eh for me! Understand how ya feel!

  • MC

    Yawn…another MAC pass. These neutrals are starting to bore me from MAC. The Lilly Pulizter was a nice change of pace even though I only bought one lipgloss. I do like some of the Spring Color Forecast stuff, but I may be bypassing most of it and waiting for MAC’s Summer stuff.

    • the Muse

      mac didn’t you snore at lillyland? I kinda did. looked fab-o in promo images but in person I was kinda ah meh. NOOOOOOOO spring forcast is MUST HAS! 😀

      • MC

        It had Preppy Lip Gelle. I’m a sucker for that Hot Pink kinda pout lol. It was my only purchase from MAC aside from a eyeliner brush in 2 months. XD. I did like the Lillyland motif. Alas, it was not really my cup of tea.

        • the Muse

          MC I got a tester of it and thought it was a little too much for me to pull off 😀 I liked the general idea but the colors turned out a little dull! 🙁

  • Colleen

    I may be interested in one of the lipsticks. Must see in person.

    Omg Mannequin was one of my favorite movies growing up! My brother and I wore out two VHS tapes of it from watching it so much. Mannequin and Adventures in Babysitting-the movies of my childhood lol.

    • the Muse

      LOL Collen OMG adventures in babysitting so funny :-D!!!!!!!! I think one lippie and one lipglass might appeal..def have to see in person too!

  • Gia

    I’m a big fan of neutrals but this is a little to much from MAC. it seems after warm and cozy and all ages and sex colllection they would be done with the browns and nudes. The lilly collection was ehh the blushes were cute but too bright in person and i bought a lip gloss and after i wore it i didn’t really like the color on me.

    I’m getting bored with MAC. I want something fun and new!!!

    • the Muse

      gia dude did you see Summer 2010? Spring Forecast? Those are all bright and gorgeous 😀 I agree it’s been a bit neutral lately for Spring/Summer is shaping up to be vibrant my dear 🙂

    • the Muse

      I dunno silhouette looks like some sort of concealer or spot concealer!??!?!

      • Miss_M

        The Chromagraphic pencils are flesh toned pencils that you use on your waterline. I guess they are normally used to brighten/freshen up the eye area in professional photoshoots

        • the Muse

          interesting Miss M! Thanks as I’d have never known until they actually released 🙂

  • Beauty Maven

    Hmm.. I mean.. nothing exciting. Really nice basic colors, but nothing you couldn’t find at the drugstore. I’d even say nice everyday colors, but wait! Who would want to be that boring? When I see MAC I think Pigment! not Mauve.

    Side Note: Is that really Kim Cattrall??

    • the Muse

      very basic beauty maven! MAC has really been doing lots of neutral.

      No that’s not her. I just made a reference that the picture reminded me of the movie mannequin 🙂

  • BeautyBitch

    I agree with the majority on this one, great promo image but the neutrals are a snooze. I don’t mind though: I skipped on Warm&Cozy and All Races, Sexes so that I could save for Lily Pulitzer, Spring Forecast, Valentines and all the upcoming bright collections.

    • the Muse

      hey bora. I didn’t get a single thing from All Races either..I wanted one or two pieces but ended up saying nay! Warm and Cozy I did indulge a bit. Did you get Lily arrive yet for you? Oh Bora Spring Forecast is SO gorg! I love it. If you need anything from here LMK!

      • BeautyBitch

        I did get two of the Lip Gelees: Lush & Bright and Preppy. I’m a big fan of glitter, but really these might be *too* much glitter, even for me! They out dazzle Dazzleglasses. The gorgeous shades and huge amount swayed me.

        • the Muse

          good haulin’ Bora 😀 They did have ALOT of glittery bits!!!!!!! I only got one but likey it 🙂

  • Miss_M

    MAC has really jumped on the taupe bandwagon, every collection seems to have at least 1 or 2 taupe items lately. I like the sound of the new paintpot though and Dressmaker lipstick seems like a nice addition to my collection 🙂

    • the Muse

      miss m seems taupe is making the rounds this year!!!!!! I like the pp’s as well, looks like good solid base shades 🙂

  • Nia

    Love the lips and even the cheeks, although I am normally of very visible blush….

    Apart from that the e/s are not really what I am liking.
