Cool-Toned Grays Signal a Smoky Black Friday at MAC: Available for One Day Only, the $25 MAC Smoky Black Friday Veluxe Pearl Fusion Shadow Trio

MAC Smoky Black Friday

The new $25 MAC Smoky Black Friday Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Trio, available one day only on November 28, 2014, exclusively online at

Ya know…we should really figure out some sort of long-range communication system that doesn’t involve technology, just in case the sh*t ever hits the fan, and the Internet goes dark, and we need a way to ask each other important questions like, “Girl, are you doing any Black Friday shopping?” or, “What do you think of the new MAC Smoky Black Friday Velux Pearlfusion Shadow Trio?”

My first thought was carrier pigeons, but then many of us have cats…


So now I’m thinking smoke signals, but I haven’t figured out the vocabulary yet.

Like, how would you say, “I think the three Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadows in this online exclusive are just OK,” with a small fire and smoke?

I don’t know…

I’d also want to say, “I probably wouldn’t take off my hoop earrings and throw down if there was a shortage of these trios and I was forced to fight for the last one, but I might reach for one on a Friday night if I wanted to do a fast and shimmery smokey eye that didn’t require a ton of work.”

But that seems like a lot to say with puffs of smoke…

Oh, well. I’ll keep working on it. 🙂

Until I figure something out, I guess we’ll have to continue exchanging makeup info the old-fashioned way.

Viva la Internet!

The $25 MAC Smoky Black Friday Veluxe Pearl Fusion Shadow Trio will be available exclusively at on Black Friday, November 28, 2014.

It comes with a shimmery beige, a cool-toned shimmery medium gray and a cool-toned shimmery dark gray, all of which can be applied dry or wet.

Would you cry yourself to sleep if you missed this on Black Friday? My guess is probably not… I think this one is more for die-hard MAC collectors than casual fans. Or, for anyone who hoards/covets cool-toned shimmery grays.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Meh, I think I’ll pass. Doesn’t really seem like that great of a value, especially with decent quality full palette costing nearly as much.

  2. Erin says:

    Very nice, the pigment is a bit lacking or smoothness or something but I still like them.

    Hey.. i’ve recently started visitng your blog.. and the best part of your blog is TAB! Woaah… i love cats.. Even, i’ve a tom cat too.. and tab reminds me of him though my cat is golden brown,, his name is JANGO… 😀

  4. I am just reading a german novel called “Rattentanz” dealing with this question.
    Well, not exactly this question, more in a “How would people change if technology would leave us and we´d all go back to stoneage communication wise” than in a “How do you like my MAC trio way”.
    Silly books, never focussing on what´s important in life…
    But as you have asked, I think I would pass on that one. Cool tones are not my thing, I´ll prefer a bronze smokey eye any day.

    Meow-mails. It’s the most logical answer. A sort of telephone chain of cats of make-up lovers.

  6. I don’t think the colors are really me, but nonetheless I love the look you created.

    Aaah, I really don’t get these VPF shadows. They are beautiful to put over an eyeshadow but on their own… nah. So I don’t really get who (except the diehard fans) would run to get this palette…. :/ Would it be a regular quad, YES. But with the consistency of these colors, meh. :/ How do you like the VPF shadows?
    Love, Stefi

  8. Fancie says:

    The colors are actually prettier than I expected but this is still so boring. Why MAC? I would have loved a frosty black lipstick or gloss. Or something. Anything but this lol
