MAC Love That Look: The Eyes Have It

Published in: MAC Makeup

“Smile with your eyes,” as Tyra might say. 🙂 MAC must have had the same idea, because this month’s Love That Look collection is all about the eyes.


Love That Look brings 12 limited edition Starflash Eye Shadows ($14.50) and four Pearlglide Eye Liners ($14.50) to counters July 30, introducing a few new shades and re-promoting some previously released colors as well.

Nice to see you again

With their pearlescent finish (opalescent + pearl) the Starflash Eye Shadows have been driving me and many of my fellow MAC fans a little nuts since they first arrived last summer.

They join the four Pearl Glide Eye Liners — Black Russian, Rave, Molasses and Fly-By-Blue — which debuted last fall as part of the Suite Array collection.

The Pearl Glide pencils apply soft and creamy, showing off a shimmery finish, and if you missed any of them the first time around, MAC is giving us another chance.

Sneak peak: Fashion Groupie and Ego

I haven’t seen the entire Love That Look collection yet, but I have gotten up close and personal with two of the 12 Starflash Eye Shadow shades.

Swatches from left to right: Fashion Groupie, Ego

Fashion Groupie’s a frosty, light blue-violet; Ego applies as a frosty, light yellowish pink.


Both shadows feel finely milled to me — almost creamy to the touch — and have that trademark Starflash finish.

Looks like the eyes have it. 🙂 I can’t wait to see more.

Friday, score!

What are you up this afternoon? Any plans for the weekend? I have an appointment to attend one of those free Chanel Master classes at a Macy’s nearby, but that’s about it. I hope we’re able to play with the fall Venice collection, WHEE!

    I may go to the Renegade Craft Fair at Fort Mason tomorrow, or I may go to Santa Rosa to check out hot tubs, wheeeeee!

    Happy Friday, Karen! I can’t wait to see the rest of the eyeshadows in this collection!

    This afternoon I did some damage at MAC; I got the 131 brush and cheeky bronze and smooth merge MSFs. I wanted fab-dabulous and triple fusion as well, but I resisted! I think my husband would faint if he knew I spent $40 on a makeup brush…

    I don’t have much going on this weekend – my main goals are to see harry potter and play with my new 131!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      The 131 is worth every penny. I’ve been using it practically every day and love it!

      Have you had a chance to play with it yet?

      Eeek… Triple Fusion is calling my name, too!

    Oh I have been looking for a violet eyeshadow and I think I may have found it!! Ego isn’t so bad either but I think it looks like one of my eyeshadows already

    • Karen says:

      Hi Patti,

      Yay! It has a really pretty pearlescent quality that I’m guessing a lot of women will love.

      Are you a purple eyeshadow kinda girl?

  10. Patti says:

    Btw Karen,

    I got MAC cheeky bronze which you recommended on another post and I am so loving it!!

    Thanks for the heads up!

  11. Pretty! Fashion Groupie looks sort of like Circa Plum from A Rose Romance collection. I totally missed out on the Starflash’s last year so I am super excited about this one!

    I will be picking up some of the new colours but I’m most excted about getting a backup of Smoke & Diamonds!

  13. Anastasia says:

    Mmmm loving Fashion Groupie. MAC is determined to break me. I am totally loving two of the Colourcraft lippies, and want nearly ALL of the gorgeous Jin Soon nail varnishes that are coming out in August. I need a second job to pay for my addiction heh he

    Thanks for the swatches Karen!

  14. lexi says:

    YAY – molasses is back – that was my favorite item from that collection! I do like this finish so i may have to check out Fashion Groupie. I am having a plum moment right now!

    I’m going to grab fly by blue this time! I adore pearlglides!

  17. Rachel says:

    I like how they look in the pots. They look more matte there. When swatched they look pretty frosty and that is not mah thing. Like the peach looks just like a frosty ballet pink on the skin.

  18. meg says:

    Really pretty! I think they may be too opalescent for me though. I still love seeing pics either way!
