MAC Prêt-à-Papier Collection Official Information and Product Photos

April 21, 2010

Craft-paper couture – an inspired idea cut like a pattern and whipped up into a frisky little “Funny Face” frock. Then, strip it back to its essence for Summer 2010 with a Prêt-à-Papier colour collection. It was a Project Runway challenge of sorts, with paper as the source, the instigator of ideas, the beginning of something simply, basically beautiful. Lipstick, Lipglass, Eye Shadow, Paint Pot, Chromagraphic Pencil, Studio Fix Lash, Impeccable Brow Pencil, Sheertone and Mineralize Blushes, and Nail Lacquer in a seamless spectrum of parchment-to-vellum beiges, with an occasional, clever colour spill, coral among the most au courant. Avec Prêt-à-Papier, a new couture star is born!

    I wish MAC would’ve actually packaged the products the way they did in the promo pics!

    What is the Chromographic pencil? Is that a concealer in pencil form??

    The Chromagraphic Pencils aren’t concealers but you can use them as a base for powder eyeshadows or to line the waterline to brighten up the eyes. They are also supposedly long wearing and water-resistant.

    I will go check these out asap and update with reviews.
