Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship MAC Heavenly Creature. Its mission: to explore celestial shimmer, to seek out soft, glowing skin and gorgeous galaxies of color, to boldly go where no woman has gone before!

Long-range scanners reveal a 35-piece planetary formation with forests of Duo Fibre brushes and mountains of Mineralize makeup and skin care. At our current speed and heading, we should intercept the collection, which is available now online, in the North American Nebula, orbiting above MAC counters and stores July 5, and internationally later the same month.

Like Captain James T. Kirk, the collection is impossibly good looking.

According to the ship’s manifest, our cargo includes…

Nine Mineralize Eye Shadows ($20 each), four Mineralize Skinfinishes ($29 each), four Mineralize Blushes ($23.50 each), five Lipsticks ($14.50 each), five Cremesheen Glasses and False Lash Mascara, the 187 Duo Fibre Face Brush ($42), 188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush ($34) and 286 Duo Fibre Tapered Blending Brush ($34) brush, Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser ($23), Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel ($37), Moisture Eye Cream ($35) and Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator ($28).

I put on my moon boots this afternoon and beamed down to the planet’s surface with Science Officer Tabs and 10 crewmen from the marble-ous collection.

  1. Wow, that pop of blue on your eyes looks awesome! For some reason, I always feel like I just can’t pull off blue…unless it’s a very dark navy smudged just into the upper lash line.

    I got the MSFs in the mail yesterday and theyre so gorgeous … not glitter bomby at all … Im using Center of the Universe today and I LOVE IT! Im finally a member of the glowy team! 😀

    • Karen says:

      Hi Nina,

      I’m digging Center of the Universe too. Are you wearing it as blush or highlighter?


      • Nina says:

        Blush!!! With a bit of a cream blush thats close to CotU’s color, its works as a light peach blush thats summery and pretty!

        Im bummed I cant do Mineralized Eye Shadows and Blush — I wanted Water and Supernova.

        Oh im seriously considering the Charged Water Cleanser — any thoughts? If I dont find a good one at the asian grocery store tonight. Charged Water might be my best bet!

        and TGIF!!!

  7. musical says:

    Love the eye look! Blue looks so pretty on you! Meteoric is a lovely lipcolor btw :). I have never tried the mineralized blushes/skinfinishes from MAC-are these sparkle city, or subtle shimmer ?

  8. Anitacska says:

    I can’t wait for this collection to come to the UK (next week). I’m buying every mineralize product! 🙂

    I love when MAC releases new collections, but I hate that I can never decide which products to pick up! My wallet may have to suffer this time… Have a good weekend!

  13. Hannah says:

    You look fantastic! I love the way you did your eyes.

  14. Kim says:

    You do have that galactic sparkle! 🙂 I hope you reminded Tabs not to wear a red shirt on the planet. I realize that he’s one of the stars, but these days you just never know who’s going to be killed down there.

    PS As I’m sure you guessed, I had a hard time looking away from the Star Trek pics to check out the makeup.

  15. Emily says:

    Hi Karen! I’m a long time reader but first time commenter! I have never owned any MAC and after seeing this I think this will be where I start! They look amazing!

    You’re such an inspiration and I adore your blog, thanks so much for doing what you do!

  19. Rosa says:

    Hi Karen, that blue eyeshadow looks gorgeous on you!! Glad to see you smiling again!!

    I love the way you did this look – especially your eyes.
    BTW- I thougth I noticed that your highlight was pink a couple of days ago but here it looks blonde?
    I was loving the pink but am wondering if you are doing some sort of secret temporary color for it- if so, for the love of god, please share!

  22. Amanda says:

    Everything in this collection is so fun and colorful. It was really hard to narrow down what I ordered. They came yesterday and I can’t wait to try it all!

    I’ve been checking out your site for quite a while and I have to write this time. You always have such a great take on makeup collections! When I say the Mac WonderWoman write up you did I just love it; and with this one, well, I just had to compliment you! Thanks for showing the world that women who love makeup are also intelligent and witty!

    PS You look great with this collection.
