The MAC counter at DFS Galleria in Waikiki
Fellow MACaholics, do you remember those drool-worthy MAC Trip palettes we talked about last month? They’ve been notoriously hard to find, right?
Some readers have tracked ‘em down at airports and other places, but I never expected to find them a block from Waikiki Beach!
There’s a MAC counter inside the massive DFS Galleria (duty-free store) at 330 Royal Hawaiian Avenue, a Costco-sized makeup Mecca that caters primarily to international travelers from Japan.
But the store is wide open to everyone, and the MAC counter carries most of the current MAC Travel Exclusives, including several of the new spring and summer MAC Trip Palettes.
I saw these from the spring/summer Trip collection…
- 5 Cool Eyes Palette, $40
- 5 Warm Eyes Palette, $40
- Cool Lips Palette, $23
- Warm Lips Palette, $23

The counter also carries MAC Travel Exclusives from previous collections, like a Cool Face Palette ($32), a Dazzleglass trio ($48), Slimshine trio ($39) and a trio of double-sided eyeliners from Heatherette.

How to buy!
You DO NOT have to fly out to Hawaii to purchase MAC Trip. You can actually place an order over the phone, but this opportunity may not last. The counter may not be able to handle an influx of calls, so I’m just sayin’… Keep that in mind.
The number to call…
Before calling, have your credit card ready and the name of the item/s you’d like to purchase. DFS will ship your purchase to you for a fee (varies, depending on destination).
To place an order, call the MAC counter at the Waikiki DFS Galleria in Hawaii, (808) 931-2616, between the hours of NOON-11PM PST, and request to place an order by phone.
NOTE: I’m not sure if orders placed by telephone qualify for duty-free (tax-free) status, and I don’t know how long this opportunity will last. Most MAC counters do take telephone orders, but if 15 people call at the same time, you never know.
