MAC Packaging

So by now everyone should know that MAC has changed the packaging for their pigments. Yes, the size of the pigments is smaller (now 4.5grams compared to the old 7.5 grams) and the price has remained the same ($19 each). I am not thrilled with this and I am sure many others feel the same way. Also, it just kind of messes up the uniformity of your collection.

Other packaging changes you will see are the palettes. Both the 4 pan and the 15 pan palettes are changing to have magnetic closures with clear covers. Now this is a change I can embrace! The pan sizes are not changing (they are 1.5 grams) so you can still depot and swap colors around if you are a palette fan.

I am just getting around to putting my MAC shadows all in 15 pan palettes so I think for uniformity I will just go ahead and wait to use the new palettes. I was able to see the new 4 pan quad with the magnetic clear cover today at my local MAC store. It is available in the Spring Color Forecast Colletion #3 and #4.

REMINDER - 2 days until MAC Viva Glam Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper lippies are released! I can't wait! Release was originally scheduled for March 18th but has been moved up to Feb 10th!
