Published in: MAC Makeup

Um, do you remember the exclusive MAC Trip palettes we were talking about a few weeks ago?


As if they weren’t enough to drive me to drink: behold! Take a look at the 3 Neutral Lips Palette (*swoons*), another travel exclusive from MAC. Everything about it is rocking my world — the packaging, the colors and even the box.


Neutral Lip is one of the three lip palettes in the limited edition collection (available at select airports this spring and summer). It includes one gloss and two lipsticks in nude colors.

  • Poetic License: a light, creamy peach
  • Expensive: a shimmery pinkish beige
  • Plastique: a shimmery, peachy bronze

Judging from Neutral Lip, I would be willing to bet the rest of the collection = fab. GAH! I wish MAC would release this collection in stores!


Evolution of style


Late last night while surfing the web before bed I found these dresses by Ralph Lauren. What do ya think? I think they’re hella cute.

I never thought of myself as an RL girl (I usually like clothes with more of an edge), but aren’t these elegant and springy? I’m having major dress lust right now! πŸ™‚

    The white packaging on MAC is so cute! (As a packaging ho, I always have to stick stickers on MAC because I though they look boring…)

    im loving those colors and the clothes by RL. RL is one of my favorite’s..i just wish i could afford it:)

  3. Kailey says:

    Ohhh those are cute!
    They wouldn’t look great on me though. Nudes tend not to.
    Soft-vibrant pinks though, that’s my niche!

  4. Shiny says:

    I’m loving those dresses, I love the idea of pairing a classic look with funkier shoes and accessories.

    Won’t you be able to get those pallets when you’re at the airport to go to Hawaii? The neutral one does look pretty fab. I went to MAC today instead of working on school stuff, got a new foundation and a powerpoint pencil in Forever Green πŸ™‚

    MAC 3 Neutral Lip colors looks fantastic. A nude lip always looks great on me. I love the casing too! The perfect lip traveling case.

  6. Glosslizard says:

    Hah! I always have to force myself to appreciate neutral lips! Usually I just grab Chanel’s Glossimer in Giggle and go!

    Love the mock two-piece! Tres elegant!

    Hi Karen, I really wish there was another way to get our hands on these products. I’ll be flying to Florida this weekend and I’ll definately be on the lookout but I’m going to be bummed if I can’t find them. That on top of the fact that my husband will be with me and he’ll be questioning me if I really need it. It’s so much easier to go makeup shopping with girlfriends and then sneak the bags in the house later. lol, As always thanks for the info!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Katrina,

      LOL! That happens with El Hub all the time. He says inane things like, “Do you REALLY need another tube of pink lipgloss?” Of course the answer is always yes…

      Whereabouts are you going? I was just in Florida for my BFF’s wedding in November. I went to Boca Raton and Key West. I *loved* Key West!

  8. Catherine says:

    That palette is so cute! Pretty colors too, looks great for tossing into a purse for on the go! & omg, you have such great taste, Karen. I can’t even pick a favorite out of those dresses! O_O

      Hi Catherine,

      Thanks! You know, RL is soooo not usually my style, but those dresses are too cute. I want to wear them with strappy sandals and delicate jewelry.

      Are you feeling better today?

  9. Elle says:

    Ooh, I love these colors. Haven’t tried any of them before. Too bad I’m not going to be anywhere near an airport soon!

    I’m not a huge RL fan either (I’m with ya on the edgier clothes), but I like the mock two piece dress. I love anything that looks like it came out of Joan’s closet on “Mad Men”.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Elle,

      Hmm, maybe if you have friends traveling you can have ’em snag you some. My friend J-Money is going to Paris in June — you better believe I’m making up my beauty shopping list right now. πŸ™‚

  10. Eunice says:

    oh my gosh i LOVE plastique *_* if it ever gets released individually, i’ll spend my life savings on it πŸ˜›

  11. Eunice says:

    wow, i take that back. i didn’t know it is already released on its own πŸ˜› looks like i’ll have to go mac hunting soon XD

  12. Meream says:

    The packaging is cute! I’m loving the PLastique lipstick.

  13. Wenvers says:

    The trip palettes are amazing, I wish I could grap the neutral palette. In our ariport there is no MAC shop, and I will only fly to Menorca this summer, so I have to take a look on eBay I think.

  14. Karen B says:

    Of course there won’t be a MAC counter at Arlanda when I leave for Belgium again tomorrow… Boohooo. The palette is so cute!!

  15. Tali says:

    Plastique looks nice!

    I got the dazzle glass trip trio.. in the uk we dont have them yet so i was so happy. I didnt see this pallate though.. the only other thing i saw was the slimshine trio but they werent really my colors!

    I know! Three months and a half is like nothing. I’m happy to go home but I’m also sad that I’m leaving, if that makes sense…

  17. TaLaisa says:

    Those lip colors are simply gorgeous. I love Plastique, although I’d need your lips to wear it.

    I have a girlfriend who travels very frequently (3 or 4 times a month) for work, she’ll look for it for me but I need to know where to send her. Are there MAC stores in the duty free shopping areas? Or is there A (singular) Duty Free shop that is carrying them along with a gazillion other things?

    I’m planning to make her a pictorial shopping list so there is no mistaking what she’s looking for.

    I love Plastique. I got this color with a B2M last year & have been so pleased with it. I am actually wearing it today with some Explicit lipglass over it. Such a great neutral color. For those that liked What A Do from BBR, Plastique is a good dupe for when this LE lippie is all gone. I have both & when swatched side by side on my hand, you could never tell the difference between the two.

  19. H. says:

    gosh, i love this collection so much. my mum will be coming back to Canada from an impromptu trip to India, so i’ve emailed her the eye palettes and lip palettes i want her to buy for me. i guess the best way would be to get her to check out the duty free shops after she lands in Canada (at Pearson International Airport in Toronto), as they might not have this collection at Indian airports. do you happen to know where i can find which airports carry this collection? is it only available in the States?

    Thanks Karen,

    Plastique has a special place in my heart-it was my first ever mac product! along with a lipliner. I wore it to death way back in the day….(of college). I should actually pick up another tube-I don’t have one anymore. πŸ™‚

  21. Daya says:

    The pink ruffle dress is so cute!! πŸ™‚ I have a few RL pieces, but they are mainly tees and jeans! LOL

    Hope you find some of the palettes next month. I’m lemming the Neutral Palette!

  22. cloudburst says:

    Eunice – Plastique is part of the regular perm collection! Purchase away!

    I love the ruffle dress.

  23. Ellie says:

    I’ve been trying to find a MAC store at ANY airport I go through!! I can never find one….:(. I’m sure there’s one at Miami International….is there a way to search which airports have MAC stores??? I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to get my hands on this collection!!

  24. Rachel H says:

    I’m an avid reader. I bought the warm trip II palette about a month ago in Hong Kong airport (my hometown airport). So if there are any international readers out there – don’t worry – it’s not a US exclusive.

    I think the rule of thumb is that in Asia and Europe only the largest and most international air hubs have MAC, and as long as there is a back you can get these pallettes. I saw Trip I (before my Mac addiction) last year when I went to Singapore’s Changi Airport. No MAC in Taipei’s Taoyuan this May. There’s a MAC in Heatrow London.

    opps typo ‘back’ –> ‘mac’.
