So if you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I purchased 2 of these Mac Pro Lip Palettes, 6 Preferred Pinks, and 6 Editorial Reds a couple months back. Since then, I went ahead and purchased my 3rd one, 6 Select Plums which happens to have some great shades for fall! Mac also has 2 more palettes, 6 Modern Browns and 6 Editorial Oranges. I passed on those as I already own a good amount of the shades from each palette already.
Now on to the swatches...
6 Preferred Pinks
Violetta, Creme de la Femme, Lovelorn, Show Orchid, Please Me, Pretty Please
6 Select Plums
Cyber, Amorous, Twig, Hang Up, Captive, Verve
6 Editorial Reds
Russian Red, Lady Danger, Dare You, Ruby Woo, Mac Red, On Hold
Overall I think this was a great idea for Mac to finally make lip palettes. I own over 100 Mac lipsticks, and smashed almost 40 of them into travel jars for my kit. Was better for travel, however, it's still way bulkier than these palettes. So this is definitely a much better alternative. It's also great for someone who wants to try out many different shades and formulas. Much cheaper as you get 6 shades for $40(usd). The only downside is that you only get 1/3 product of an actual tube of lipstick. Not too bad in my opinion, as I hardly ever finish a full tube anyways. The formula for each remained the same, and applied just as well as the regular tubes. I actually prefer these better as I now love using a lip brush to apply product.
I purchased all of my palettes through Mac's Canada customer service. They're pro items available to everyone, however they weren't available through Mac's U.S. pro site or customer service back then. However, I did log onto Mac pro today and it now says coming soon. So I would think pro stores as well as Mac customer service (U.S.) should begin stocking them pretty soon. Until then feel free to order like I did via Canada's customer service number. Shipping is a bit more ($7.50 flat rate to the US for up to 10 items) but if you order enough product it'll be worth it.
So what are your thoughts on these new palettes? Do you own, or plan on purchasing any?
