MAC GRAND DUOS: EXTRA INFO! SPOILERS!

Posted on: February 6, 2009


UPDATE UPDATE UPADTE —  CHECK THE BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE FOR MY CONTEST TO WIN A FREE MAC GRAND DUO!  YES FOR REAL!!— OK NOW READ ON 🙂

As a makeup addict, sometimes you just despair at never being able to save any money with the makeup companies always launching exciting new collections every other month. I’ve barely made a dent in the 7MAC Mineralize Blushes that I bought last July from the Sonice Chic collection and already now the internet forums are awash with talk about the Mineralize Blush duos that MAC will be launching as part of the Grand Duos collection. No wonder there was this pic of a MAC blush called Love Rock in the new February issue of Elle (Singapore)! – Don’t ask why I was looking at an Elle mag from Singapore, that involves a lot of mai thais and sun.  I was puzzling over it as I hadn’t heard anything about the blush duos…and yes this was awhile back.  Obviously I have already done one article about Grand Duos but I had already written some of this before and now I have some new info.
img_1722Good news is that it looks like another must-have with pretty gold veining. Bad news is that the price has gone up from S$37 to S$41. At this rate of price increases, we’ll be paying more than S$50 for a MAC blush in a couple of years. Now that’s enough to make any makeup addict cranky!

1Here is what MAC says:

 

“Mineralization har swept the beauty nation but MAC makes the next move with Grand duos: mineralize blush that has a marbelized mélange on one side, and a complementary mono-shade on the other.

Soft-shimmer super-shine pearl in a pretty tricolour veining to enhance and glorify cheekbones, followed with the pop and dimension of solid colour shimmer without an overly frosted look. The 188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush makes  the transition magnificent. A sophisticated but simple new way to get you vital minerals.”

  • Moon River – blue pink mélange / pale yellow pink
  • Love Rock – Gold violet mélange / bright blue pink
  • Grand Duo – Copper pink mélange / plum
  • Light over Dark – Orange yellow mélange / deep brown
  • Earth to Earth – Purple bronze mélange / yellow brown
  • Hot Planet – Copper yellow mélange / mid-tone plum
  • Intenso – Orange yellow mélange / deep brow

    I do think MAC got it right on this one. From what it looks like, half is a single color blush that is probably the same formula as the Mineralized Blush. The other half appears to be a gorgeous marbelized shade that complements the blush color perfectly. I could totally see myself swirling both colors for a cheek color with some sheen, or going with the obvious use: Blush on cheeks, pretty-swirly-MSF’ey goodness side for a pretty highlight. 
    The collection is set to release March 12, 2009.

    Hello!

    I have been reading your blog for some time now and I have to confess that it is FABULOUS and has been a source of inspiration for me. I would like to read even more- if that is somehow possible :)- about MAC products as there isn’t a MAC store in my country and all the time that I am travelling abroad I try to refill my stock of MAC make-up products. Also, I would like to read more about Gossip Girl as lately it’s my no1 favourite show and I am very often smitten with the gorgeous outfits. So, keep up the excellent work you have been doing so far and also pick me as a winner 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Thank you for the comment! I have many friends that are in countries who do not have MAC stores and I feel very bad for them! 🙂 If you ever need something from MAC please know all you have to do is ask me and I can mail it to you. It’s not a problem for me. I hope you are the winner too! Email me if you ever need anything.
