Mac Glitter & Ice Collection : Paint Pot & Liner Swatches!

Mac Glitter & Ice Swatches

Dont get freaked out if you enter your nearest Mac Store and see space age like bubbles all around. Its the invasion of the MAC Glitter & Ice Collection girls, and it has some absolutely drool worthy items!!!!! I am specially lusting after the paint pots which look super gorgeous as well as the eyeshadow quads (though the less than favourable reviews by temptalia is kind of discouraging me from those!)

Mac Glitter& Ice Technakohl Liner Swatches


From Left to Right:

  • Mac Silver Skates Technakohl liner (This one was very weak in pigmentation, it was so difficult to make it show even on my arm)
  • Mac Smooth Manouver Technakohl liner
  • Mac going for gold Technakohl liner
  • MacFancy Moves Technakohl Liner
  • Mac Practice makes perfect technakohl liner
  • Mac Seasonally Spicy Technakohl Liner


Mac Glitter & Ice Paint Pot Swatches

From Left to Right:

  • Mac Lets Skate Paint Pot: An icy pale whitish pink
  • Mac Morning Frost Paint Pot: A gorgeous, champagney color. I want this one !!!
  • Mac For Effect Paint Pot: A dark charcoal grey with silver shimmer. Very pretty!

Liked any of these? I didnt love the MAC Glitter & Ice technakohl liners. I have 3 of the permanent line technakohl liners which are nice, but these ones were kind of hard to even swatch. I did however love the paint pots. I definitely am thinking of getting the Morning Frost Paint Pot for sure! There is also a drool worthy eyeshadow palette of 6 gorgeous, warm neutral eyeshadows which i was totally lusting after, but i thought i might get similar colors in inglot for cheaper hence refrained. Wedding expenses make you cut down on all indulgences!!

Btw, to all delhi-ites if you do visit the Vasant Kunj malls to check out the Glitter & Ice Collection, do check out “Red Mango” right opposite the Mac Store in Ambience. I had the most amazing cinnamon yogurt with marshmallow, Mango, almonds and chocolate chip topping. Heavennn!!! Plus they let you put as many premium toppings as you wish, and charge you right at the end depending on the weight of your cup!

Hi Mehak

Had been to MAC (mumbai – palladium mall) on Friday and these had not arrived. Fall colour collection lippies , which i had gone to purchase, were sold out.

Incidently, I am totally put off MAC at the moment. They never have what I want in stock, the SAs are totally unhelpful and you have to wait for hours for someone to attend to you.

Enough of the rant, wish u all the best in the wedding shopping. Did you check the INGLOT bridal collection?


mehak January 29, 2012 at 10:17 am

With the MAC Sa’s i think its a hit or a miss.. there are some wondeful SA’s that MAC has but there are other who arent so attentive…of late though i have had better luck with them. Aww i know about things being sold out. Fortunately, the mac store close to my house is not too popular so things are in stock..
Noo havent checkd out inglot bridal collection yet!!! have u ? is it nice?


Roopa January 29, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Not yet! But plan to visit Inglot this week – hopefully the stocks should have arrived! Heard the collection has coppers and bronzes!

Agree on the MAC SA bit. On one occassion, I was checking on – Coppertone v Gingerly v Format at the MAC counter at Inorbit Mall. I donot shop there, was just passing by and did tell the SA that I would not be shopping but just checking. Yet the SA was nice enough to apply the blushes and give her opinion on how I could combine blushes. The MAC at Palladium is where I shop at least regularly and yet ……

Krittika January 29, 2012 at 10:27 am

I was actually eyeing the lip bags from this or the Iced Parade collection or something… And I agree on the SAs too… Though my MAC had a recent change in staff and they are all sooooper adorable now!!! :D

Only ‘Mac For Effect Paint Pot’ looks interesting rest all the stuff looks dupe-able to me…I was in VK mall y’day but didnt get time to check out MAC, I’m a bit bored with their unhelpful SAs. So many things I have on my wishlist seem to be perpetually out-of stock :(


Samyukta January 29, 2012 at 11:20 am

the for effect paint pot looks so gorgeous!!!! it would make a gorgeous smokey eye :) drooooollllllll :P


thePURPLEspirit January 29, 2012 at 11:24 am

Ive been eyeing the Let’s skate paint pot…it’s like a glitter bomb! And coz its in a paint pot form, there won’t be any fallout too! I really got tempted to pick it up yesterday but resisted n came. Sigh! Now I can’t stop thinking about it. Maybe I’ll buy it after all.


tanveer January 29, 2012 at 1:04 pm

This hasn’t been launched in Mumbai yet.. at least it wasn’t there yesterday :)
