MAC Julia Petit Collection: First Impressions [VIDEO]

Published in: Collections, MAC Makeup, Video

Olá! Tudo bom? Não fall Português… But I wish I did, ’cause then maybe I could kick it with MAC’s latest collaborator, Brazilian lifestyle blogger Julia Petit.


She seems cool, and not just because homegirl has cat pics on her Instagram (for which she gets major cat lady points!).

Anyway, her gorgeous new limited edition makeup collection, MAC Julia Petit, is launching March 12 online at and coming to stores March 18 through April 15. I’ll be posting more detailed pictures and swatches soon, but for now, here are some first impressions.

    Wow haha Monsieur Tabs sure was curious today! 😀

    Boca looks gorgeous on you, Karen! I might get it, since it reminds me of The One That Got Away (Oxblood)…

    BTW I thought I’d share; my Macy’s is getting the Cinderella collection in tomorrow and I’ll be there, waiting to buy both lipsticks and lipglasses like the addict I am 🙂

      Hi Estefania,

      Tabs was all about the camera today! I guess that’s what I get for living with an internationally acclaimed kitty supermodel.

      Anywho, SO EXCITED that you’ll be able to grab the Cinderella lipsticks and lipglasses. Now that I think about it, I’m gonna smear some of that eye gloss on just for fun…

      Will you be grabbing anything else from MAC? I gotta go to the counter to get some wipes. I’m all out!

      • Estefania says:

        OMG Karen. So I ask my boss for an hour to head to Macy’s to buy the lipsticks and lipglasses from the collection. I get there and bond with a mac addict while in line and I see that the lipsticks are selling out. Next the lipglasses. I hear my phone ding, and it’s an email from MAC announcing the re-stocking of certain pieces of the collection. I involuntarily shout, “IT’S ONLINE!”, and people whip out their phones like crazy.

        I ended up getting the other eye gloss at Macy’s, but now I’m just waiting on my order to get here 🙂 Success?

    Hi Karen!
    Yes, Julia Petit is fantastic. I’m a huge fan of hers. Did you know some of the products were named after her cats? I know “Mumu” eyeshadow is one of them ;D

  3. I´m from Brazil and I think it was so sweet that you begin your post with portuguese. <3
    Julia Petit is so famous here. She was one of the first youtubers here that talk about makeup, do tutorials, and show all that good high end stuff like MAC, Urban Decay, Lancôme that now we love and know thank´s to her…
    Before her, the majority of people only knew small brazilian brands.
    She really deserves all this recognition, she really work hard for it. We are so proud!
    It´s so AMAZING to see a huge blogger like you talk about her. Beijos-Kisses 🙂
    (sorry for the awful english)

    Tabs is such a diva that he can’t let you be in the spotlight for a few minutes, he HAS to be in front of the camera, lol!

    The lipstick in Boca is the piece in this collection that I’m considering. The shadow duos look good but they’re more dupable than not, and I’m worried about texture issues (I’m not a big fan of MAC’s eyeshadow formula in general).

    Karen, you are so cute. You wanna hang out with Julia, I want to hang out with you 🙂 Tabs must have been jealous that the camera was focused on you.

    As for the collection it does look pretty and very wearable. I love that pink lipstick you’re wearing and that strawberry red as well.

    I don’t know who’s cuter: You or Tabs. 🙂 I was giggling through the whole video.

    Very pretty collection. I’m loving the three lipsticks.

  7. Maria H. says:

    Excited for this collection! And I’ll tell you, it is a crime against humanity that you don’t make more videos. Just takes practice to get comfortable in front of the camera, and you’re doing fabulous, so keep ’em coming. We’ll all be looking forward to the next time we can see Karen do her thing!

  8. breyerchic04 says:

    Oh my I think I need Petit Red and Boca lipsticks! Acai is pretty too but I just got a new Rebel at Christmas. The blush is nice too, I don’t have a subtle peach blush (I think the closest I have is benefit coralista?)

    I can’t wait to see someone wearing Petit Red!

  9. So many lovely classic colors in this collection. I really like the lipsticks from the collection and you look beautiful here – love the hair!

    You have the most ladylike voice, and Tabs was crackin me up! My cat was all up in my face while I was watchin this so solidarity, girl! (She finally forgave me after a morning trip to the vet 🙂 ).
    I’m really psyched for this collection in a way I haven’t been for a mac collection in some time – I love the blush and all 3 lipsticks, it’s a super good collection for the warm toned among us! I’m just worried about being able to get my hands on it, the couple special collection items I have wanted to pick up in the past few months have all sold out by midday of the the day they were released, and that’s pretty frustrating!

  16. Erinaceina says:

    This video made me giggle insanely. Oh, Tabs. My cat used to climb all over me while I was trying to work, and I’d almost always give in and make a fuss of her instead. On the makeup side, the lipsticks are lovely, but the blush looks like something I definitely HAVE to have.

  17. Junomacguff says:

    Karen, I just love you! This video cracked me up because it’s what my brain feels like. Haha! You did great and Tabs should be told that if he wants to be on camera, you’re going to apply makeup to him. That blush would really bring out his eyes.

  18. QBdoll says:

    Karen you are hilarious! This is the first video I’ve watched of you and I love you! You seem so cool and fun and I bet it would be a blast to hang out. Anyhoo, loved the video and the makeup was so pretty on you. Wondering about that red lipstick now…. I haven’t been able to see a good swatch of the color. Loving that first shadow duo also.

  19. Heloisa says:

    Hi, Karen! So sweet of you to start the post with some Portuguese (or Brazilian, as I would say, since our accent is SO much different from European Portuguese’s, although it’s the same writing). I really liked your video, and thank you for your effort with Brazilian words! You got it pretty much right, I’m sure you would learn easily if you tried! I’ve been reading your blog for a while, and it felt so nice to see a Brazilian being the star of this MAC collection. Julia Petit has some amazing hair styling skills too, I always watch her videos as an inspiration for hairdos. However, it’s hard to imitate, because she’s such a pro.
