Out now: M.A.C Prêt à Papier collection

M.A.C Prêt à Papier makeup collection

I’m an arts and crafts type of girl myself, so I love that M.A.C‘s newest collection, Prêt à Papier ($14.50-27.50, maccosmetics.com) was inspired by craft paper.

This range is all about the beiges (from parchment to vellum paper) with the occasional “colour spill” of coral. LOVE.

M.A.C sent me a sample of their classic Paint Pot ($20), available in this collection in two shades: Coral Crepe and Groundwork. It’s meant to be used as a cream shadow, but I’m loving the coral on cheeks too.

And just back on the “paper” theme—when it comes to press materials, M.A.C make some of the most beautiful around. (They’re more like mini-magazines, in fact.) So I was delighted that as part of this launch they ALSO sent me a paper doll booklet with little outfits by Cynthia Rowley, Greta Constantine, Zandra Rhodes and Daniel Vosovic! It’s NOT for sale, mind you, so don’t go looking for it or I’ll be in trouble. But I have to share them with you—because who doesn’t love paper dolls? Photos after the jump.

I love the earthy “paper” tones of this collection. So perfect for the summer.
Oh those paper dolls are the best! Thanks for sharing.

Love the paper dolls!

I bought two lipsticks from this collection and have been wearing them regularly. Also got the Instant Chic blush which is amazing. I think this is fantastic collection for neutral loving people like me. I am still on the fence about Coral Crepe paint pot though…not sure if I would use it daily.I need to think fast though cause it’s selling like hot cakes apparently.

I agree, Anya and Michelle – the neutral tones are not what I’m used to seeing from M.A.C (they’re known for highly pigmented brights), so it’s a nice change!

And good to know the Coral Crepe is selling fast… I do quite like it. I like that it’s not TOO coral but still different enough from the usual taupes, browns, that I tend to put on my lids.
