MAC Summer Collections 2008 101

Summer is a busy, crowded time at the MAC counter – here’s a handy-dandy guide that provides you with all you need to know about each new summer collection:

Collection: Neo Sci Fi

What it is: This collection runs the gamut of colors from hot fluorescent nail polishes, to beiges and flesh tones.

How you’ll recognize it at the counter: The bright orange packaging

Stand-out product/color: At first glance The Beauty Bug seems to think She’s seen these colors before, and nothing grabs Her attention.

Song to coincide with collection: The Beastie Boys, Intergalactic

Collection: Future Earth

What it is: A collection of skin care, including Charged Water, Prep & Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher and Volcanic Exfoliator, that promises to be earth shattering.

How you’ll recognize it at the counter: Let your nose lead you to the smell of volcanic ash, the key ingredient used in the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator.

Stand-out product/color: The Beauty Bug can’t wait to try the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator – it’s mineral and sulfur rich formula that contains naturally harvested ash from the island of Vanuatu.

Song to coincide with collection: Justin Timberlake, FutureSex/LoveSound

Collection: Solar Field

What is it: Powerful, rich pearlized pigments that add shine and sparkle to cheeks and eyes. Wear alone, or mix with bronzer.

How you’ll recognize it at the counter: You’ll know when you’ve spotted the Solar Bits because you’ll reach for your shades to protect your eyes from the glare.

Stand-out product/color: The Beauty Bug can’t wait to whip up a sultry smokey eye with the Black Ore Solar Bits.

Song to coincide with collection: Electric light Orchestra, Blinded by the Light

Collection: Tendertones

What it is: A collection of 10 (6 new, 4 old favorites) sheer, moisturizing lip balms that contain SPF 12.

How you’ll recognize it at the counter: The strawberry-kiwi and cotton candy flavors will draw you in.

Stand-out product/color: Hush Hush is perfect for a day at the beach.

Song to coincide with collection: Elvis, Love me Tender

Collection: Cool Heat

What is it: A collection of teal, violet and blue eye shadows, skin-cooling fragrances and neutral and coral slimshine lipsticks.

How you’ll recognize it at the counter: Because it’s the perfect paradox – hot corals mixed with chilled blues.

Stand-out product/color: The Beauty Bug can’t wait to smell the 2 skin-cooling fragrances – there’s nothing like a refreshing summer fragrance done right that captures the intensity of the summer.

Song to coincide with collection: Bananrama, Cruel Summer

    This is off subject – but when you wrote the Stila Cherry Crush post you said “Beauty Bug Fiance” instead of the usual B.B. Boyfriend. Does this mean that you are recently engaged? If so, congratulations! :)

    Hi J!

    Yes, you are correct. The Beauty Bug Boyfriend is now The Beauty Bug finance – The Beauty Bug is engaged! Wild, right? Thank you for your congratulatory wishes. She just now has to make sure she has a manicure at all times!
