Ungaro & MAC: What An Amazing Collection!

MAC worked very closely with Esteban Cortazar to create the perfect look for Ungaro’s Fall 2008 collection, his first for the collection. Cortazar describes the collection as his “celebration of effortless seduction and unapologetic femininity.” To achieve that look the collection plays with “beautiful prints, fluidity and colours.” Complimenting this look he wanted makeup that “feels timeless-modern, but still makeup that a woman will always want to wear.”

To create the correct look MAC Key Makeup Artist Sharon Dowsett mixed the exact right shades using MAC Pro pigments, these mixtures became the base for creating the product line. She describes the final collection as incredibly close to what was used for the show with some “pleasant surprises!”

While I don't have images of every color/product in the collection, here's what I do have:

• Pure Rose: Pastel pink with white pearl
• Freckletone: Neutral yellow-toned beige

Eye Shadow
• Soft Flower: Clean, mid-tone coral
• Lilac touch: Dirty mid-tone violet
• Mineral: Deep cool brown
• Phloof! Frosted off-white

• Pastel Emotion: Pastel pink with white pearl

See-Thru Lip Colour
• Not So Shy! Jewel-tone berry stain
Note that this product was inspired by a long discontinued lip stain, with some added translucency to make it work for both lips and cheeks

Cream Colour Base
• Crushed Bougainvillea: Jewel-tone berry stain
• Fresh Morning: Soft muted pastel pink

Beauty Powder
• Flower Mist Dew: Clean brightening pink
This very finely milled powder reminds me a bit of the very sheer pinks used with mineral makeup. It’s meant to provide no coverage to the face but will provide a very soft, incredibly sheer pink color to the face.”

Technakohl Liner
• Auto-de-blu: Amethyst

Zoom Lash
• Lofty Brown: Ultra-rich blackened cocoa brown

Brow Set
• Mink: Dirty brown
Note that this product was originally created for the collection with Catherine Deneuve’s collection with MAC, it hasn’t been changed at all!



  1. do you know when this collection will be in stores??

  2. All I know is the very general statement from MAC's PR which is that it will be "available in October" :D

  3. I was at the MAC store yesterday and they said it's coming out on Thurs. I'm in Canada so it should be the same in the States.
