MAC Pret-a-Papier Quick Review and FOTD

If I buy stuff, I gotta use it right? This is a quick FOTD using the 4 items I bought from the MAC Pret-a-Papier collection. What I love about this collection is the wearability of it. Wearability equals value to moi! Wearability also means a pretty tame FOTD as well 😉

Tissue Weight is a pinker version of Naked Lunch. It really just blends in with my skin tone. If you have Naked Lunch, I’d go ahead and skip this eyeshadow. Gazette Grey is also not a must have but it’s a nice neutral color to put in the crease. I read that this shadow didn’t blend easily but that’s not the case. Using a MAC 224 brush you can get this sucker blended. I can see this being used to compliment or blend out a purple eyeshadow such as Memorabilia.


This picture shows the chromagraphic pencil on the waterline. I love how less harsh it looks than if I’d used white on the waterline. It also lasts the entire day! This is my favorite product in this collection. You can also use this pencil to conceal and define. I’m definitely getting a backup of this since I’ve been using this pencil everyday since I bought it.


Instant Chic blush is pretty in the pan and pretty on the face. It’s not a must have blush but if you need a corally blush then get it. It’s a sheertone but definitely well pigmented.

I think I need to go back and get Memorabilia. It’s so pigmented and pretty but I have a zillion purple eyeshadows. What did you get from this collection? Let me know in the comments!

MAC Pret-a-Papier Haul

I hauled a few things from the MAC Pret-a-Papier collection and to tell you the truth, I was really surprised I liked this collection as much as I did. I was boo hooing the promos for this, but in person this collection is gorgeous! There’s just so much more value in a collection of wearable colors. I posted swatches here of this collection.

Here’s what I got from this collection plus a couple other things. As always, click on the photos for full size.

Tissue Weight next to Naked Lunch for comparison. Tissue Weight is more pinker/corally.
