mac veluxe a trois collection

Three, or trois, as my high school French teacher Madame Sonsteng would say en Francais, is the magic number for the MAC Veluxe A Trois collection, and you gotta say it all slow motion and stretched out like, “twaaaahhhhhhhh.” Veluxe a twaaaahhhhhhh!


Technically, the collection doesn’t arrive on counters or in stores till August 13, but it’s already available online.

We took a look at the eye products in the release a little while back, but you know how it is with MAC… There’s a new collection out every 3.5 seconds, so here’s a quick refresher.

The collection is coming to stores and counters soon, but you have to please do me a favor now and read this list out loud like a robot (because it’s just more fun that way). 🙂

The MAC Veluxe A Trois collection includes…

  • 6 new Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Trios ($25 each)
  • 6 Lipsticks ($16 each)
  • 4 Cremesheen Glasses ($20 each)
  • 2 Haute & Naughty Mascaras ($22 each)
  • 247 Flat Shader Brush ($25)

The stars of the show, obviously, are the new Veluxe Pearlfusion Trios, but the Lipsticks and Cremesheen Glasses are interesting, too. I’m looking forward to wearing a number of them this fall in looks. Check it…

All I have to say is this: Flowerscope, Quelle Surprise, Heux and Pillowtalk. With those four lipsticks in your makeup bag right meow, you’d be good through fall (and maybe even the holidays).

The Cremesheens Lipstick formula, by the way, is sooooo high up on my MAC pedestal. I friggin’ worship it. These lipsticks feel smooth, moisturizing, and I love how they have just the perfect amount of comfortable “slip” to them on your lips when you rub them together.

Both the Cremesheens and the Amplified lippies are my favorites. I totally LIVE for ’em.

As for the four Cremesheen Glasses in the Veluxe A Trois collection, meh… I think they’ll be better for layering on top of lipsticks than for wearing on their own. I’m a fan of the Cremesheen Glasses in general, because they aren’t sticky and they’re super moisturizing, but depending on the color, some of them (like the ones here) can apply a little patchy.


What do you think of the Veluxe A Trois collection lippies? Have you gotten any of them yet, or do you plan to?

In other news, TGIF! I’m heading to the movies this evening to take El Hub out for his birthday. Yes, it was his birthday this week, and one of his presents is/was a movie of his choosing, so we’re going to see Mission Impossible 12, or something like that. Five? Six? I lost track. There’s been so many of them… 🙂

Whatever you’re up to tonight, have fun! I’ll see you in the morning.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    My lippies arrived this morning. I got Royally Riotous and You’ve Got It. I love the lipstick!!!

  2. sarahc says:

    Me too! I love the Mac Amplified formula. It’s my favorite of everything they make by far.

  3. Alicja says:

    Can you tell me if Flowerscope is more red color, or pink? Because on your pictures it looks like pink, but MAC site describes this shade as a clean red pink with blue undertone.
    If you could compare this lipstick to any from permanent collection which one would that be?

    Darn it, MAC! Shut up and take my money! Those lipsticks are divine! Now i have to wait an extra long time because i live in australia and we don’t get things all that quick down here!

    Great post Karen!

  10. Astrild says:

    I have too many lipsticks. I have too many lipsticks. I have too many lipsticks. I have too many lipsticks. I have too many lipsticks. I have too many lipsticks.

    Perhaps If I say it enough times I’ll resist this temptation.

  11. Nikki says:

    OMG! Flowerscope is such a pretty shade. I LOVE it.

  12. Nancy T says:

    Oh, I am in lurrrve with Royally Riotous! One question though; would you say it’s a close match to my beloved MAC Paramount? Just wondering!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Nancy T,

      Oh, I love Paramount too (I wore it all throughout college). So, on me Paramount is darker, redder and has a flatter matte finish compared to Royally Riotous. HTH!

      • Nancy T says:

        Thank you, Karen, it definitely helps! I wore it through the middle and late 90’s when my 2 kids were young, and so was I…well sort of.

        • Karen says:

          You’re very welcome! Paramount was my very first MAC obsession and it has a special place in my heart. Remember when that shade was EVERYTHING? Both me and my best friend wore it. lol

          How old are your kids now?

          • Nancy T says:

            Yes, I do! And I am happy that it seems to be making a quiet comeback! So I’ll be getting a new(er) tube soon.

            My son is 29, and my fellow makeup addict daughter is now 26. Time flew!

          • Karen says:

            GIRL, the ’90s are back. I walked into Urban Outfitters a while back and almost every thing there looked like stuff I wore in college. I almost couldn’t handle it. (Kinda wish I kept all of those floral dresses I used to wear, though, sigh.). Lucky you to have two kids! And that’s wonderful that you and your daughter love makeup. I have to bug my mom to wear the lipsticks that I give her, LOL!
