MAC Peacocky Collection for Holiday 2010/Winter 2011

MAC Peacocky Collection

MAC Peacocky Collection for Spring 2011

U.S. Launch Date: January 6th, 2011

Arrogance or elegance? The showy display, the undeniably sexual spectacle, the iridescent irreverence…it’s awe-inspiring. We fetishize the exotic peacock as a symbol of extreme beauty, an act of elaborate nature, raging against everything simplistic. Peacocky fans out in a foray of intense colour for Lips and Eyes, exotic and sophisticated with a touch of ’30s F. Scott Fitzgerald glamour and mesmerizing metallic sheen. New Kissable Lipcolour combines full flash with creamy comfort. It’s molten, with elastomer technology that imparts a velvety, aerated feel without sacrificing shine. Light as a feather. Mega Metal Shadow gleams like chrome, with light-reflecting properties – yet creamy, crease-resistant, vitamin-fortified flexibility. Dramatic doesn’t even begin to describe the girl who knows she’s Peacocky.

Kissable Lipcolour ($18.00 U.S. / $21.50 CDN) (Limited Edition)

Kissable Lipcolour provides medium coverage with the creamy comfort of a lipstick and a shiny finish of a lipgloss. The lightweight, comfortable formula is loaded with super emollient ingredients that provide a cushiony feel on the lips. The colour flows like silk, encasing the lips in creamy, luscious colour. Like a molten lipstick, the product melts onto thel ips and feels light and airy. It provides medium coverage with a luminous, smooth finish. It’s feather-resistant and wears for hours.

It delivers medium-buildable coverage that won’t fade or crease. The formula contains vitamins a & e, antioxidants that help condition the delicate eye area. The creamy powder ensures an even, smooth application that lasts all day and easily blends with little fall-out.

Sweet theres gonna be a collection on my birthday! 🙂 Do people get any deals or anything like that if they buy something on their birthday?

Victoria Avatar

Ooooh, peacock blue/teal is a color that makes me swoon! Looking forward to swatches and reviews when they become available.

Christine, love your site and appreciate the immense amount of work you put into it. Been a long time reader, but haven’t thanked you yet… mea culpa!

Laura Avatar

Well damn, I thought the only things I needed to save for were venemous villians and tartan tale, my budget just got blown out of the water! I can’t wait to see photos of the metal shadows, they sound too good to be true

Kendall Avatar

I don’t know for sure, but I feel like these will be bigger eyeshadows – the Tartan Tale eyeshadows cost more too, but are actually cheaper per oz because they contain about double the product. It’s really lame though if you don’t tend to go through eyeshadows so you don’t need the extra.

stephanie Avatar

Love the new mega metals colors, but not liking the price. It’s going to be a challenge for me to pick which one I want. I may skip over holiday and spurge on these. You know.

JayJay Avatar

MAC: You’re killing me!!! $23.50 for a shadow (CAD), it had better be something special! The scary thing, the descriptions make them sound amazing. I love some metals! If they turn out to be cream or something, I will pass.

The lipcolour sounds nice, but sounds sort of like the texture of a slimshine to me..

JayJay Avatar

Wait a second.. I just re-read it. The actual shades of the lipcolours sound incredible! Love Peck and Peacocky: They will be mine!

The shadows, I’m gonna have to visit in person. The whole creamy idea doesn’t always work for me.

yasmine Avatar

They’re actually like powder shadows but the finish is extremely metallic that they kind of look like they’re creamy…if that makes any sense lol I absolutely love them I’m buying all of them. The shadows are same size as Tartan tale. The lippies I liked too I think they are supposed to be similar to what I hear liptars. Like a cross between lipstick and gloss.

hanna Avatar

Christine, do you think i should save my money for the tartan tale collection, or the holiday collections coming out the days after christmas?
Thanks for the update<3

hmmm the eyeshadows are not cream right? so they’re the usual eyeshadows with a new finish collection just like the Starflash collection in 2008 right.
coz i really hoped that the tartan tale eyeshadows with plaid pattern are cream eyeshadows!

Sarah Avatar

Oh my gushness! Can’t wait for swatches and general product info (size, packaging, etc). MAC’s murdering my wallet, but it feels sooooo good. 🙂

Olivia Avatar

The price increase is due to the Kissable lip colours are the same packaging NOT FORMULA as the Dare to Ware lipglosses and the Mega Metals are the same size as the MES.

Vonvon Avatar

Yay!! The Mega Metal shadows! I have read somewhere that these have superb finish, even better Starflash. Definitely looking forward to them.

I am trying to imagine the shades based on the description and it got me so excited!

Carolynn Avatar

AH i wish this would come up before the 31st, im being a peacock, black dress with peacock feathers i sew to it then crazy feather make up and and up do with feathers spread out like the tail… its dope, just wishin for that mac

Daphne Avatar

This sounds amaaazing, I hope the products live up to these descriptions! Is it bad to say that this collection has given me a bit of extra motivation to job-hunt!?

I discovered your site and am awed at the amount of work you put into it. Thank you so much!

jennylevi Avatar

When are the promo pictures going to be uploaded so far its sounds really awesome and mysterious at the same time. I hope that these shadows are good to blend and no fall out.

Lisa Avatar

Collections like these are the reason i ask for gift certificates… The day after Christmas and i have a feeling i’m going to go broke getting them… LOVE the names and colors… i would be happier with pictures…

Becca Avatar

AHHH!!!! I’m so excited for this! And I thought that after Tartan Tale I wouldn’t be spending any more money on LE!! >:( Oh well, gorgeous colours (oh so they sound) can’t wait to see them. My wishlist:
Peacocky, Mating Call, Sexpectations, Dandizette, Odalisque, Noir Plum and Prance.
There goes my soon-to-be New Year’s Resolution, sigh…

Kim-Mary Avatar

Mega Metal Shadows??!!! Awesome!!!! New lipsticks?! Great. When can we expect to see pictures? I have to get the peacocky lipstick just for the name. It’s too cute something my little sister would say instead of peacock. 🙂

DonnaN Avatar

from my understanding, the shadows are more the size of the blushs……depoting to a 6 pan blush palette will be the six shadows of my choice for a metal shadow palette!!

judy Avatar

Oh man! I was hoping for lipsticks not what looks like lipglosses. Shucks! That is not to say I will not be buying any of them. I just prefer lipsticks. Now, I need to see the swatches. Woo Hoo.

Emily Avatar

I completely agree! To me lipstick comes in a stick, not a liquid, no matter the name. Even applying lipgloss annoys me to no end, totally without glamour IMHO

kali Avatar

I don’t know why but I just haven’t been into MAC collections lately (I guess that’s a good thing!) But I do think the photos are amazing -I can’t wait for your swatches! That always determines whether I buy/check out a product or not. =)

Sass Avatar

Peacocky looks interesting…I hope it sheers out a bit. I think I’m really interested in Love Peck which I hope resembles blood red. A metallic brown, I’m thinking, would look hot. I need swatches and maybe then I’ll get excited about this collection. Can’t wait to see them!

Dawn Avatar

Stunning colours! I’m looking forward to seeing swatches because at the moment I want all the eyeshadows, and I need to narrow it down as I can’t afford it all.

Shontay Avatar

I am dying for this collection! I may end up with everything. I’ve never owned a megametal shadow. I am most excited for the lip products though. That blue lippie is so mine.

Lisa Avatar

I love this collection!!! This is going to be my birthday present…. Thanks for ALWAYS keeping us updated and for letting us know what all collections look like before we buy them.

Nadia Avatar

OMG! i want them all. :S My wallet’s going to hate me. But i’m going to save some money after xmas to keep it aside for my MAC
I’m looking forward to the swatches so i know for sure which ones to get!!

vice Avatar

Christine, when you get these, can you compare the mega metal shadows to NARS Night shadows? I see some similar colors and since they’re only $3.50 difference in price, I could see myself getting either/or.

Lucie Avatar

Oh man, I need that blue gloss since Illamasqua can’t ship their Disciple lipstick to the U.S.! Really excited for this, think it’s strange that the eyeshadows are so expensive though…don’t think I’ll be getting more than one or two of those!

Heather Avatar

I am trying so hard not to get my hopes up for peacocky… it looks like a gorgeous, interesting blue, but knowing MAC it’s gonna be way sheer and not anywhere near as unique as it looks right now. I guess i need to see the swatches

Isobel Avatar

yeah their blue dazzleglass and the springbean lustreglass were disappointing. Illamasqua has opaque blue, silver and black coloured lipsticks and glosses and a green lipgloss if that helps you any 🙂

Isobel Avatar

thanks Christine for the pics! still keeping with my picks from the descriptions but kwl to see what they actually look like. Hoping some site comes out with Mickey Contractor pics soon so they can go up here!

Miss Silver Avatar

Another collection? …well, if they have a deep green biased teal, matte and shimmer, I might consider. I’m madly in love with green biased teals.

Molly Avatar

for some reason I always get excited for the metal creme shadows . . but then I remember I always end up swapping mine or getting rid of them. They crease to much for me to use them as a shadow or a base. . and the lip colors will be passed on as well doe to their amount of product vs the price.

MatryoshkaDoll Avatar

Not my color palette, but seeing this collection brings to mind something I’ve been thinking about – recently I haven’t seen lip glasses being released as part of special collections, is this because they’re trying to get us to buy the dazzle glasses and others which are $4 more? Ya, I think so.

Erika Avatar

Hey Christine, I’m excited about this collection!!Is there anyway you can mention in your swatches and reviews what the texture/finish of the Mega Metal e/s are closest to IE: Starflash, veluxe pearl etc?? Thanks!

Donna Avatar

This is killin’ me…who’s idea was it to release so many gorgeous collections almost at once? I can’t wait for Peacocky..Flaunting It…the grey mauve lippie reminds me SO much of a color that Calvin Klein put out with his first makeup collection (that rocked) in 2000 called Ash Rose…it was awesome and of course long discontinued. May need a few of those…along with the rest of the collection…guess I need to go pawn someone’s firstborn…LOL

ms.mad Avatar

Already on pro website. What is mac trying to do to us. I love when they release them early but my addiction with make up is going crazy!!Can’t wit to see swatches 🙂

Naty Avatar

Yesterday SA at local mac who knows my love to Mac let me peek at this collection. Yes it is already arrived in stores ready to go on sale soon. Anyway unfortunately for my wallet but quality of shadows are amazing and colors are wonderful as on the pictures. I tried also lip colour and fell in love. Doesnt feel greasy and pretty weightless on lips, doesnt feather either. LOVE it.

VJNS Avatar

What to choose what to choose? I wish MAC would sell their very large collections like they did with Tartan Tale. At least it was sold in sections and I was able to buy most of the products. Now I’ll have to buy only what I can budget for.

tinaaki Avatar

i wish i could afford to buy every single item i wanted to buy from mac 🙁 I disacovered mac a year ago and i am very impressed!! i love their products but i cannot to buy every single product i want. U are very lucky Christine that u afford all this stuff 🙁

Sophie Avatar

yay – happy – lady at the MAC counter said these come out on monday (for australia) hopefully will be working non-stop between now and then to help money-wise!!

Erika Avatar

Why does MAC come out with collections back to back? They have three collections out right now, and in my opinion, the best part of the MAC site is not just the gorgeous make up, but the Artistry section with MAC Looks. Why don’t they have any looks, except for the Viva Glam, which are really old! If us MAC divas want to look our best, we need looks that we can refer to everyday. If MAC is going to raid my pocketbook, fine, glad to pay for the best, but give me some advice! The nearest MAC store is 90 minutes away, and Macys and Nordstrom folks aren’t as good…. My two cents.
