MAC Reel Sexy Collection

Oh no.

They’re back.

I absolutely hated the first round of MAC Pro Palette Duos. The formula was just craptastic.

MAC Reel Sexy Collection features more of the same.

The MAC Reel Sexy Collection launches May 2012 but thankfully this isn’t MAC’s officially Summer 2012 Collection, no worries.

Take a look.

The eyes of the world depend only on the long-awaited Oscar ceremony. Had as may be MAC inspired by this event, we will surpass 2012 with Reel Sexy. A collection as alluring and extravagant as a private performance at the movies. A bold, brilliant and not least, sexy look that impressed with intense and bright red berries and coral tones. Shine in the lead roles: strong Nail Lacquer, perfectly balanced eye shadow duos, Mineralize Skinfinish Lipsticks and exciting for a Hollywood-style kiss!

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. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Good morning Muse 🙂 I’m gonna get pink cult and lightscapade to have as back ups since their both amazing, Other than that the only other thing that catches my eye is the peach gloss. What’s the difference between cremesheen glass and regular lipglasses?

    Btw you got a couple typos in there (creemsheem and lightscape) Too early huh? 😛

    • the Muse

      way too early ;-D hehe. creamsheen is milky, no shimmer, about the same tack/stick as lipglass although a little bit thicker, cream finish versus lipglass which I find thinner and obviously available in an array of finishes. ;-D

  • kimkats

    Ugh… nothing there interests me. But what is that giant purple thing that’s about to devour the model?? Kinda scary looking! 😀

  • Kim

    Watch Me Simmer! Hopefully, I can get it this time since I missed it the last time. Lightscapade is also calling me. 🙂

  • Rawr

    oh please, no more eyeliners -.-
    Question: Did you buy Viva Glam Nicki?? I have not seen any mention of it in your posts ^_^

  • Maggie

    Oh, definitely need a few things from this one. Like the lipsticks and nail lacquers! WTF is with Lightscapade, though? Hasn’t that been repromoted in like 3 other collections lately?

  • Lori

    LOVE your site SO much! U r on top of everything! One tiny thing I would do however, is to have the names of the products correspond to the pictures in order, so we know what name goes with what pic as oppose to having to assume based on color description! 🙂 don’t know how you get all your info so quick but keep it coming! I check in twice a day!

    • the Muse

      sorry lori I am so legendary for doing that. apologies! I’ll def try to improve that. I just want to get the info up as quick as possibly and sometimes don’t put things in order ;-D

      and thanks! You are lovely for saying so xoxox!

  • Maggie

    Oh crud – Muse, did you have any idea Estree Lauder had resumed testing on animals after not doing it for ages? Guess I won’t be getting anything from this collection after all 🙁 I can’t believe they would start up animal testing after NOT using it for so long. Awful!

  • Erin

    I agree with you…no more of these Duos! However, I am excited for the lipstick and Cremesheen shades, I will be picking out some pinks from these products. I also like both the teal and violet nail polish shades. I don’t know that I NEED these products since none of them are very unique but I like many of them.

  • Nar

    Dammit! I was hoping for eye- scorching neons from the promo image. Boo.

  • JoElla

    Are they launching things every week now?

    I will admit I am interested in some of the lipsticks.

    • gabriella

      Haha, seems like it, huh? I’m new to mac, so all this is new and exciting for me lol

  • Lisa

    Tube Sexy looks nice! & I did not expect them to repromote Watch me Simmer so soon since it was just a few collections ago and just came out about a month ago!

  • Hoang

    The eyeshadows.. at least they aren’t Mineralized..
    I foresee that all of the lipsticks and Lightscapade will once again, sell out within the first couple of days online. I get why they repromoted Lightscapade again but I really don’t see the infatuation with the shade.. at all.
    I am in the minority but I personally am tired of the bright lipsticks phase. MAC has been putting these out time and time again from Quite Cute, Fall Colour, Iris Apfel, Shop/Cook, Chenman etc.! At least they are good quality but the color choice is getting kinda boring.
    Pink Popcorn sounds intriguing but just because I love lavender. (sounds like another in the shade family of Quite Cute, Lavender Whip, Budding Love, etc.)
    Private Screening and Cinestyle Cremesheen Glasses look like my kind of products though!

  • Joan

    Cant’ keep up with all the Mac products that come out. Definitely want at least one of these blushes and one Cremesheen and lipstick. Don’t know what I did before finding this site to get all the great info, reviews and advance notice of new products coming out. I guess maybe I saved some money! LOL! I’ve been on other sites, but this is by far the bestest!

  • suzanne

    Love heirloom pencil. Its a great eye opening shade for mature eyes. Gonna have to grab lightcapade and simmer missed em both last time

  • Ashley

    I…don’t like this promo image… lol I don’t think the model looks good at all (in either an artistic or a beautiful way). Not a fan of the duo eyeshadows either.
    Excited about By Request though. 🙂

  • gabriella

    I want lightscapade! I’m in the market for a new face highlighter and have heard good things about this one. I also and interested in the liners, including the permenant ones, since I don’t have any of the mac kohl liners and have been trying to build my liner collection. I’ll wait for swatches though! I’m curious about tube sexy… Though I can never pull off oranges/corals, no matter how hard I try 🙁

  • Amandale

    ANOTHER “Heroine” LS? One came out with the “Wonder Woman” collection but it was a different color completely. Come on MAC, you really could think of any other names? Gah!
