Here Kitty, Kitty: Would You Like Some MAC Fabulous Felines?

Published in: MAC Makeup, Product Reviews

Yo, as if I needed yet ANOTHER reason to go all crazy cat lady on your @ss, the MAC Fabulous Felines collection claws its way onto makeup counters tomorrow, and from what I’ve seen so far, it might be one of MAC’s most purrr-fect releases to date.


NOTE: If you can’t wait till Thursday, don’t (it’s already available online). πŸ™‚

Here are some pics to help you wrap your tail around everything. It’s a hefty release, with 52 pieces for eyes, cheeks and lips distributed among three different color stories…

  1. Palace Pedigreed — regal blues, grays and silvers
  2. Burmese Beauty — rich olives and teak
  3. Leopard Luxe — tawny creams and golds (Tabs likes these A LOT)

Tabs auditioned for the Leopard Luxe modeling campaign but never got a call back…

Keep your cool kitten eyes peeled for the Superslick Liquid Eye Liners ($17.50). Available in nine shades, these innovate long-wearing, water-resistant liners actually look wet when they’re dry, and Tabs thinks they’re the cat’s meow.

Today while he napped (apparently, fabulous felines require a lot of sleep), I took a look at eight pieces from the collection…

Palace Pedigreed

  • Pigment in Blood Line ($19.50): Simply put, I lovethis purplish brown loose powder shadow. It’s smooth, with just a hint of shimmer, and I bet it would rock the socks off of looks featuring plum or brown smokey eyes
  • Cremesheen Lipstick in Of Royalty ($14.50): This creamy bluish pink looks strikingly like MAC Viva Glam Gaga (which means I like it!), but it’s a touch darker with a tad more blue
  • Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in Smoky Heir and Signature Blue ($17.50): I doubt MAC intentionally developed these with actual feline eyes in mind, but I swear the wet finish makes lines drawn with Superslick look an awful lot like the lines around a real tabby cat’s eyes. Oh, and despite how long-lasting these are, they somehow remain quite easy to remove.

Leopard Luxe

  • Cremesheen Lipstick in Drive Me Wild ($14.50): LOVE THIS! Like MAC Lychee Luxe in lipstick form
  • Lipglass in Schemer ($14.50): I bet this sheer, shimmery caramel with red and gold pearl would look festive layered over a brick red lippie

Burmese Beauty

  • Mineralize Blush in The Soft Meow ($21): This golden matte brown blush could probably double as a bronzer for gals with medium-to-dark skin
  • Lipglass in Jealous ($14.50): Jealous looks like a sheer, shimmery light green in its tube, but the color’s almost invisible on my pigmented lips πŸ™

    Ah, I’m loving the look of the Superslick eyeliners! I am a total liquid liner fiend and those colors are making me drool. I want…

  2. Elle says:

    I love the eyeliner on you (and the kitties in the MAC photoshoot have nothing on Tabs πŸ™‚ )!I have a pretty short list of what I want, since I’m trying to save up for the Villains collection…and I’m curious to see what you think of the quads.

  3. omg, tabs in the last photo is absolutely LIVIN it!

    the superslicks were what caught my eye first and it’s what i want to get the most. i was wondering, does it apply well? i have this fear that it’s so watery, i’ll have to apply like, 3 coats just to make an opaque line.

    These look awesome on you! I’m going to Kansas City this weekend and I’m gonna check these out in person. I’m like Elle above and I’m really waiting for Venomous Villains, but I’d like to pick up a few pieces from this collection too.

  5. so i was not at all in love with this collection, but now I’m intrigued again by the superslick liners…

    OK, sweetest Tabs pic EVER (the one with the compact on his head)! OMG, the angsty look in his eyes…so funny, Karen! He deserves gravy for that pose. The superslick eyeliners look the most interesting to me; I actually don’t like an opaque line, so maybe they’re watery enough to work for me.

  7. Erin says:

    OMG I can’t wait to go to the counter tomorrow morning!!! I’m getting like 4 lipsticks, 3 lipglosses, and 5 of the new eye liners!!! Heyyyyyyyy crazy cat ladies!!!

  8. aw man, Jealous looks a little bit disappointing to me, I was hoping it would be a bit more pigmented than that. I’ll still go test it out at the MAC counter though!

    I’m pretty sure Aisha and Tigger would be extremely disappointed in me if I didn’t get something from Fabulous Felines.

  10. Amber says:

    Yay! Most of this collection doesn’t thrill me, but I love how wearable it is and I had to get a little something to represent for the cat ladies. I was so looking forward to Disney Villains but am feeling ‘meh’ about most of the swatches and packaging, so I figured I might as well!

  12. Natsumi says:

    To be honest I think I’d only get something from this collection because I’m a cat lover! Some products looked AMAZING but then after seeing numerous swatches/reviews they definitely seem as ferocious as they were made out to be. I thought MAC would’ve gone for ferocious feline, not tame kitten.

    You’ve gotten some nice items though, definitely love the smokey heir eyeliner! That’s a bit of a surprise.

    Oh and hi! I’m Natsumi, or Suki. Just thought I’d introduce myself since I’ve started lurking around your blog (:

    Ugh. As if I need anymore reason to love MAC. Now they throw in the cat lady hook. I missed out on Hello Kitty (I’m still sad over that) and now I must get me something Palace Pedigreed.

  17. blovetbeauty says:

    Schemer Lipglass looks super pretty on u!

  18. amy says:

    The colour of Jealous Lipglass in the tube looks a lot like MAC Vex eyeshadow

    I can’t believe Tabs didn’t get a call back, poor fellow. I hope it hasn’t knocked his confidence?

    Those liners look absolutely amazing! And I can’t believe Tabs didn’t get a call back to model for this collection! Their loss, because he looks hella fierce. πŸ˜‰

  24. Radhika says:

    Tabs is soo cute..though the pics with the Chanels will be my fav πŸ˜€ I am liking Drive Me Wild lipsticks and the eyeliners.

  25. Nina says:

    Crazy cat lady reporting for dutyyyyy! πŸ˜€

    Im leaving work early today because my bestie is giving birth … but before I head on over to the hospital, im picking some Fab Felines stuff.

    I initially wanted all the three quads but I might pass on the purpley one because its so similar to the Spring Forecast one. I also will probably get 2 blushes to add to my tiny blush family.

    This is a very wearable collection and I like that. πŸ™‚

  26. Kim says:

    Wow – those liquid liners are awesome. Looks like a perfect application too – do you like the brush as much as LORAC’s? You look fab in that picture, btw. And very nice tie-in with the kitty-inspired accessories!

  27. lexi says:

    So far I am only loving the liquid liners – my wallet thanks me!

  28. Sarah says:

    I love how Tabs is part of your blog. It really makes me smile to see his precious face!

    OMG! Tabs is hilarious…I can’t believe he lets you put stuff on his head. Cats are sooooo lazy sometimes πŸ™‚ LOL. I need to pick up a few of those liners I think…….

  31. saku says:

    Aww look at Tabs, cute. Even though I’m a cat person, this one doesn’t thrill me. I’m saving up for the Villians one. But I may get a few lipsticks and gloss. I already have my list.

  32. Oh my gosh, I fell in love with this collection. The superslick eye liners are gorgeous! When I saw your swatch of it, I knew I wanted it–so off I went and bought it. XD I also got the Spree lipglass which the lady almost couldn’t find because there was only one left. I nearly had a heart attack.

    love tabs hugging his product! πŸ™‚

    Tabs is such a “ham” with the camera. Any way you can photo shop the eyeliner on him? Also, love the blue eyeliner; looks very Bail-like, exotic on your eyes. Keep up the great info emails! Is dark lipstick coming back for fall? Judy

  35. Can’t wait for my stuff to arrive at my door πŸ™‚ So excited for the liners!

  36. Mariana says:

    Thanks for you answers πŸ™‚
