I’m Tripping ‘Cause MAC Trip’s Now Available Online!

Published in: MAC Makeup, News

Hey, MAC-aholics. Remember MAC Trip from last year, and how frickin’ hard it was to track down? MAC released the collection of palettes, lip sets and brush kits as travel exclusives, and you could only find them at various airports and travel hubs around the world, not at MAC counters or stores.


It was pretty hit-or-miss, too, and I’m guessing more than a handful of MAC fiends nearly missed flights trying to hunt these babies down!

If you’ve been wanting to get your paws on MAC Trip, grab your credit card and do a little happy dance because MAC just launched the collection online.

UPDATE 6-9-2010: To find ’em, search for “trip” (without the quotes) in the search bar on maccosmetics.com.


NOTE: Certain items, like the Cool Lips and Classic Eye/Cheek Palettes, are MIA. Thank goodness the MAC gods did us right by including the Cool Eyes Palette, aka one of bestest eyeshadow palettes, EVAH. If they had left it out, I would’ve pinched somebody good and hard with my monkey toes, ’cause Cool Eyes is all that and a bag of salt and vinegar chips. LOVE Springtime Skipper (a shimmery green) and Waternymph (a shimmery teal) on the lids!

It’s kinda nice you no longer have to hop on a plane to buy these, right?

    I saw that too – well I got an email from MAC. Looks like I’m covered when I’m ready to bounce. The problem now is settling on a vacation destination and which palette would I bring with me?

  5. Shelly says:

    Oh no! At first I was like “pass” on the palettes since I’m not a palette kinda lady, but then I saw the adorable little lipstick set bags…curse you Karen!

  6. amy says:

    Even though I really like the cool and warm eyes palettes I will have to resist the urge to buy and skip this. This will just throw me off budget with Art Supplies and MAC at the Beach coming up.

    wow I gotta say I wasn’t really interested in cool eyes until I saw your swatch Karen…. damn, I’m very tempted now….

  13. Rita says:

    Yesterday I was online on MAC.com checking out some Liberty items, and suddenly – what the… – MAC Trip! Anyways, since no one seems to praise the Neutral Eyes Palette, I will! It is one of the best palettes I have. Get it while you can.

  14. Aniela says:

    Omg I can’t believe this..I totally gave up on looking for this collection at one point. I’m so glad they’re bringing it back. Only problem is? I’ve already went welll over my budget this month with all the new summer stuff I bought. But this should be an exception right? lol

    Hey Karen!

    If I have (and love) the Cargo Tahiti palette, should I get the Cool Eyes palette or are they too similar to justify getting both?

    Man, MAC keeps burning a hole in my pocket!!!

  16. Scientific Housewife says:

    Those color swatches are amazing!

  17. Toni says:

    Very pretty colors in the cool eyes palette, but I know I’d probably never wear them. I am such a neutral girl. The wildest I get is paste pink shadow and lavender or plum colors. I am going on vacation to the beach though and these colors would probably look nice. (See how I am trying to justify spending money on pretty colors? LOL!) I like the look of the lipstick kits too. My hubby just saw an email that another MAC order I had placed last week had shipped
    (it was small – 2 shadows and an eyeliner), so I’d definitely have to hide this from him!

  18. Christy says:

    I have the Cool Eyes palette and it is pretty. They’re not colors I’d wear everyday, but the colors in the palette work well together. Am so glad they finally repromoted Springtime Skipper, it’s been way too long!

    Karen – amazing swatches!
    I was tempted by your post this time last year, dead set on getting the cool eyes palette at duty free. then at the very last minute bought the original warm eyes palette from last year (gorgeous pinks and purples including da bling + parfait armour), since purples are more of my thing. it worked great on pale and tan skin!

    as much as i love mac, it feels a little like they are simply hashing out the surplus stock from last year, and am disappointed they did not come out with new palettes for this years trip collection.

    I’m sorry if this either a stupid question or a frequently asked one but are these available in mac stores/counters?

  21. So pretty!!
