MAC Pret-A-Papier Collection (Launches April 22) Info & Swatches

Just a heads up, I wanted to let everyone know that MAC's Prep-A-Papier collection is up for sale over at MAC online already. Suprisingly, it's not available on the Nordstrom site yet (collections are almost always available on Monday the week it launches.) I was originally going to do a big post of the collection details a week or so prior to the launch because I was really anticipating on this collection but I don't know if it's just me but I'm not as excited anymore. The hype seemed to die down. (Shocking!) I'm not even going to be buying anything on presale or putting items on hold (MAJOR shocker) and I'll only be picking up a blush -that is if I buy anything at all. I was really looking foward to the Coral Crepe paint pot actually but since I've seen swatches, I'm not too excited anymore. Click here for  almost all the product swatches from this collection (Specktra.)

  1. I wasn't crazy about this collection either, nothing really interested me. I am more excited about the next one "to the beach", although have a list of items that I want from that one.

    Nice blog by the way, I am following... now.
    If you'd like to check mine out,

  2. Thanks! Yea, I was really excited before swatches came out. Once I saw everything -it looked very "so so" to me. I'm excited for To the Beach too! ESPECIALLY for the lipsticks -even though I keep saying I'll stop with the MAC lipsticks. Thanks for following. I'll definitely check your blog out when I have a chance. =)
