Wednesday MAC Attack: MAC Fabulous Felines, More MAC Art Supplies Swatches, MAC Trip Compact Kits

Published in: MAC Makeup

We made it to the hump, babes! Honestly, sometimes I think for surviving half the workweek, we should all get an award — a golden statue or a trumpet salute would do nicely, yes?


One good thing so far about today: I finally got a chance to swatch more Pearlglide Liners from the MAC Art Supplies Collection (see more swatches here). Say g’mawning to Undercurrent, a shimmery green, and Almost Noir, a shimmery plum (each $15).

From left: Undercurrent, Almost Noir

They have the same creamy formula as the rest of the Pearlglide liners and boast plenty o’ glitter to spare. What do you think of these colors? I’m feeling ’em both. πŸ™‚

MAC just released three new Trip travel exclusive palettes called Compact Kits. Keep an eye out for these limited-edition eye and cheek palettes at select airports and duty-free stores.

  10. Meghan says:

    ooo i noticed that trax is one of the colors in the Mac Trip warm eye shadow palette. I own trax and i love the color but i have no clue how to wear it! sometimes it comes out looking like i got a bruise on my eye. do you have any suggestions on ways to wear trax?

  11. Vonvon says:

    Tje MAC Trip Compact Warm palette is very beautiful with the shades which is summer-y and yet suitable for most seasons with the earthy tones.

  18. Scientific Housewife says:

    Those pearlglide colors are great!

  19. Kelly says:

    Dang I had Almost Noir in my cart yesterday like 3 times, but wound up getting two Black Line’s instead (and Undercurrent and Designer Purple). Now I wish I had ordered it also! I think Black Line is gonna rock my world!

  20. lexi says:

    Hi Karen,
    How would you compare Almost Noir to UD’s Rockstar? Any similiarities? I am trying to resist the urge of adding Undercurrent to my shopping list!

  21. Catherine says:

    WOAH! MAC Attack indeed lol, that’s so much to take in right now. I can’t wait to see promo images, etc for Fabulous Felines. So exciting hehe.

    Man, this Wednesday’s been rough for me (I think I’m coming down with a cold ;_;) but hopefully it’ll get better. I’m having lunch w/ a friend and getting a new haircut tomorrow and then getting taken out to dinner early for my bday on Friday by another friend… so I just have to get through today really! Super excited because on Saturday SO and I are cleaning and baking for my birthday tea party on Sunday, and then on my actual birthday (Monday) he’s taking me to Neimans to haul Shu Uemura. πŸ˜€

  22. Lindsey says:

    Those eyeliners up top look like something I need! πŸ™‚

  23. Steph B says:

    Oh man…loving the way this kitty collection sounds. I want (make that need) many of these items. I can’t believe we have to wait for fall. No fair!

  24. candace says:

    I am so glad that tomorrow is the 1st of April!! I have abstained from purchasing anything from mac in the past two weeks, so I’m definitely going to go nuts on the Art Supply collection. Especially the lipstains!

  25. Elle says:

    Your Tabs-themed MAC adverts made me LOL, Karen. I needed that today!

    I’m sad to say that I want all of these–I’m totally curious about the eyeliners. Le sigh. MAC steals my paycheck before it even gets into my account. Now all they need is a dog-themed collection and I’m set…

  26. Rica says:

    OMG… I love your Tabs Promo Pics. Genius Ideas LOL. They are the winners of your Tabs Art Contest!

    I love Almost Noir, it’s so pretty. To me, it kinda looks like Macroviolet Fluidline in a pen. Speaking of Pearlglide, I pull out my Black Russian from last year’s collection and used it today only because there are new shades releasing tomorrow. Haha, I’m such a dork.

  27. Kelsey says:

    I am SO FREAKIN’ EXCITED for the Fabulous Felines line. Oh my God. I think the crazy cat lady in me feels as though this was made specifically for us cat people..

  28. Instant Karma (formerly L) says:

    YAYYYYY FOR FABULOUS FELINES! I don’t have much MAC stuff, but I’m enough of a crazy cat lady to buy half the line simply to own kitty makeup.

  29. Lynn says:

    I am hoping to save for the Leopard Luxe palette and the Drive Me Wild lipstick. Do you know anything about the supposed “A Tartan Tale” collection MAC might be releasing in October? I’m obsessed with Tartan but am hoping there’s nothing too fabulous so I can save for the winter collections.
