Beauty News: MAC’s latest launches

MAC has been on fire lately with all their new collection launches! We’ve barely been able to wipe the drool off our keyboards before another amazing lookbook’s been sent our way. Some collections are available online now, check them out at Here are all the deets…

Available now in SA:

MAC Playland Collection

A stunning colourful collection full of daring brights, it makes me feel like a kid at a birthday party! (Or me at a birthday party now…I love me some cake)
Those of you who love daring, playful looks are going to love this collection. Top of the lust list: Lipstick in Toying Around


Love this photo. The girl in the back’s like “Bitch, where’s my giraffe?”

 MAC Studio Sculpt Shade and Line Collection

This is such a clever collection of eye palettes! Each one contains a metallic eyeshadow, a sparkly eyeshadow and a matte eyeliner. For R350 a palette, these are great for anyone starting out their MAC collection or those of us who need to downsize on the amount of products we have (can’t see that happening anytime soon, but it’s a nice thought ;) Top of the lust list: Eggplant Blend


MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil Collection

MAC’s finally got on board with the chubby lip crayon craze. These offer a dewy finish that looks comfortable and easy to wear. The colour selection looks amazing, definitely going to have to get my hands on these! Top of the lust list: Kittenish


MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection

Ermagerd. This collection. I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I do, but it’s PERFECTION. I adore the campaign photo below, the lighting and colour scheme makes this Art Director very very happy. The shades are super wearable and flattering, and I think these are products that you could use every day. Finally, the packaging. I thought the teal packaging had been styled with water droplets for the photos, but the packaging actually has fake water droplets on them! Amazing. I want it all. Top of the lust list: All of it, but especially the Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Lorelai and Lipstick in Mystical


MAC Proenza Schouler Collection

This collection is a collaboration with NYC-based fashion duo Proenza Schouler. I love the colourful ombre packaging and the shades seem very wearable and cool, what I would imagine NYC locals looking amazing in. Top of the lust list: Lipstick in Primrose


Coming soon

MAC Waterproof Brow Collection

This may seem like a less exciting launch, but I AM SO STOKED. This collection features waterproof brow gels and gel cremes in a variety of colours. Applying wax, eyeshadow and clear brow gel every day is a bit of a lus, I’d love to find an all-in-one product. These look like they’ll be a winner. Top of the lust list: Pro Longwear Brow Set in Red Chestnut



MAC Lorde Collection

The coolest teenager in today’s music scene shows she’s made it with her own MAC collection. It’s much smaller than I anticipated, and only features a lipstick and liquid eyeliner.However they’re all you need to get the luxe-goth look, and that purple lip is bang on-trend. Top of the lust list: Pure Heroine lipstick, just to see if I can pull it off!

MAC Maleficent Collection

This collection celebrates the release of ‘Maleficent’ starring Angelina Jolie. I was very surprised by the colour scheme of this collection. I expected to be more along the lines of the Venomous Villains collection (my favourite MAC release by far), featuring lots of purples and greens. This is full of warm, rich tones which I find odd considering the leading lady. Anyhoo I look forward to seeing it in person. Top of the lust list: Lipstick in True Love’s Kiss

MAC Kelly and Sharon Osbourne Collection

I’m so excited for this! The infamous mother-daughter duo are bringing out a collection each. Sharon’s is warmer toned while Kelly’s caters for cooler skin tones. Top of the lust list: Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Ruby and Jolly Good Mineralize Skinfinish Duo




Kelly collection


Sharon collection

MAC Pedro Lourenço Collection

So apparently this Pedro person is a famous fashion designer…I’m obviously behind on the times! This collection looks like a treasure chest of nudes and tasteful metallics. Not loving the packaging, but I’m sold on the shade selection! Top of the lust list: Nude Eyeshadow Quad
