M.A.C Pret a Papier Collection

By Butterboom Writers  /  May 27, 2010

M.A.C seeks inspiration from Craft-paper couture.

M.A.C ‘s latest darling Summer 2010 collection, Pret a Papier was, interestingly enough, inspired by a Project Runway challenge where contestants had to cut up paper to create something truly beautiful.

Pret a Papier is a soft, feminine and extremely wearable collection.

Lipstick, Lipglass, Eye Shadow, Paint Pot, Chromagraphic Pencil, Studio Fix Lash, Impeccable Brow Pencil, Sheertone and Mineralize Blushes and Nail Lacquer all start off in pale shades reminiscent of paper, but eventually cascade out into a collection with little pops of color. Shades range from soft pinks, peaches, pretty corals and versatile neutrals, making these pieces wonderful, timeless investments.

Our personal favorites include:

  • Dressmaker Lipstick– a gorgeous peachy, coral shade in the luster variety
  • Instant Chic Sheertone Blush– a mid-tone muted coral shade, perfect for glowy summer cheeks
  • Gazette grey eyeshadow– dark green-grey with a golden pearl shade which will look fantastic with a soft smokey eye
