MAC x Philip Treacy Collection


MAC released their newest collection MAC x Philip Treacy on March 26, 2015 online and April 2, 2015 in-stores. The collection featured limited edition lipsticks, fluidlines, paint pots, highlighting powders and a mascara.

"M∙A∙C Philip Treacy represents a unique partnership – London’s leading couture hat designer collaborating with the world’s boldest makeup brand. Going back through his extraordinary career, Treacy culled inspiration from his work to create a trio of sensational headpieces that showcase the structure of the face. Paired with each hat, a collection of products that enhances the face’s most evocative features."
Here's what I picked up from the collection...

Lipstick $16 USD / $19 CAD (0.10 oz.) [LE]
  •  Cardinal is described as a yellow burgundy red. [Satin]

  •  Hollywood Cerise is described as a magenta berry. [Satin]

  •  No Faux Pas is described as a yellow hot pink. [Matte]
Cardinal is a medium-dark red with warm undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, mostly opaque and had good pigmentation. Cardinal wore well for +5.5 hours and was a tad drying over time. (5/5)
Hollywood Cerise is a medium, pink berry with cool undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, opaque and had good pigmentation. Hollywood Cerise wore well for +5 hours and left behind a faint stain. (5/5)
No Faux Pas is a bright, fuchsia with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, fully opaque and had rich pigmentation. The formula was lightly creamy but a tad drying over time. No Faux Pas lasted +7 hours before fading and left behind a stain(5/5)  *This shade was previously released this past holiday in the Heirloom Mix Collection.

Fluidline $16 USD / $19 CAD (0.10 oz.)
  •  Blacktrack is described as a solid flat black. [P]

  •  Blue Peep is described as a bright flat teal. [P]

  •  Royal Wink is described as a bright royal blue. [LE]
Blacktrack is a dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. This shade dries to a completely flat matte and is mostly opaque in a single stroke and can easily be layered for a fully opaque coverage. Blacktrack wore well for +11 hours. (5/5) *This shade is also being released in the upcoming MAC is Beauty Collection.
Blue Peep is a medium, brightened blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade also dried to a flat matte finish and could be easily layered for a fully opaque coverage. Blue Peep wore well for +11 hours. (5/5) *This shade is also being released in the upcoming MAC is Beauty Collection.
Royal Wink is a medium, brightened cobalt blue with cool undertones and a satin finish. This shade has an almost slippery consistency which made it difficult to layer the product over itself as it would sheer the color out. Royal Wink had decent pigmentation in a single stroke and wore well for +10 hours. (4/5) *This shade is limited edition.
