MAC Proenza Schouler Collaboration: Woodrose, Primrose and Mangrove Lipsticks

April 18, 2014

MAC Proenza Schouler Lipsticks01MAC has collaborated with the genius design team Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, otherwise known as Proenza Schouler. I still remember the first time that I saw one of their bags–it was the softest deep green leather. The very sight of it–miles away on Barney’s sales floor–drew me in immediately. Their style is modern and classic, very urban with an edge. They make lovely, lovely things. MAC Proenza Schouler Lipsticks05I was able to find three of the lipsticks from the MAC Proenza Schouler collaboration that I can share with you–the nude Woodrose (a creamy Lustre), the sheer violet Primrose (a lustre with shimmer), and the vibrant orange-red Mangrove (matte). These come in special luxe packaging at $22 each, and they are supposed to be released next week. MAC Proenza Schouler Lipsticks07Mangrove is a stunner, a statement color that is clean, modern, and very cool. Here it is on Sandra, a family friend who has a deep love of all things makeup: MAC Proenza Schouler Lipsticks13Woodrose is a nude with the faintest touch of pink and grey. Primrose looks like a deep sparkling violet, but applies with a very blue-violet version of Givenchy’s Liz’s Lips (or a very distant cousin of Clinique Black Honey).

These will be available at MAC stores, counters, and online sometime next week. MAC Proenza Schouler Lipsticks14

    Thanks so much for the review. I am enjoying my Woodrose at the moment, a very nice nude that goes good with almost everything. It also has enough pink in it so I don’t look washed out.

    Once the collection is out, you should definitely check the Ombre Blushes. I have the pink one and it is really beautiful. Too bad the orange one was already sold out here at the time I have noticed the collection. I would have picked that one as well…

      I hope I can find them. If I can get an orange, I’ll look for one for you as well.

    Hi Amy! This collection seems so beautiful. Primrose reminded me of Mac’s Capricious, am I right? Xo

    Mangrove has my name written all over it! And oh, THAT BAG!

      Sunny, Mangrove has a really clean, classy look. It’s surprising for such an unusual shade. You would look stunning in this for summer!!! 🙂
