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

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!

  1. Gela,

    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.
