MAC Emanuel Ungaro Collection

MAC has collaborated with the designer of Emanuel Ungaro Esteban Cortazar to create a limited-edition makeup collection due in stores in the US on Sept 25th Oct 2nd, 2008. It is going to be MAC's second collaboration for its designer makeup series. The first designer makeup collection was a collaboration with Alexander McQueen that was launched last fall.

I am a fan of Emanuel Ungaro's ultra feminine, colorful and classy fashion design. It is no surprise that the makeup colors from the Ungaro collection are based on romantic pale pastels and soft light textures. The lip and cheek colors are demure with muted pale pinks and beiges. Inspired by French Impressionist Claude Monet's "Water Lilies", the eye colors are colorful and rich in earthy, pink, blue and violet tones.

MAC Emanuel Ungaro Collection includes:

Left: Frechletone (neutral beige) Right: Pure Rose (pastel pink)

See Thru Lip Colour
Not So Shy! (berry stain)
Pastel Emotion (pastel pink)

From Left to Right:
Eyeshadow: Soft Flower (coral), Lilac Touch (violet), Mineral (deep brown)& Paint Pot: Essential Beige (light metallic beige)

Cream Color Base
Left: Crushed Bougainvillea (berry stain) Right: Fresh Morning (pastel pink)

Beauty Powder
Flower Mist Dew (brightening pink)

Brow Set
Mink (brown)

The collection also features Technakohl Liner in Auto-de-blu (amethyst blue) and Zoom Lash mascara in Lofty Brown (blackened brown). In fact, these items plus the lipstick in "Frechletone" are permanent items.

I am just disappointed about the overall packaging design. I wish the collection came in something more delicate and unique that reflects the couture house's heritage in romantic style and colorful elegance.

If you are interested in swatches of the collection, check out Lushious Babe.

Hello Angel,

I haven't really tried any See Thru lip products from MAC. I am looking forward to trying it at the MAC store when it comes out.

I quite like the pastel pinks of the Ungaro lip products and blusher. :)
