Why I passed on the rest of the Deneuve collection


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Saturday, February 18, 2006 8:29 PM (Eastern)

It's nothing personal, whatever. I adore Deneuve. The Bourbon lipstick would have been good on me...and the two shadow quads. I still jump for joy when it's "Strawberry Blonde" time.

I'm a makeup junkie, but I find this rather new MAC phenomenon, of cranking out a new, limited-edition, color collection seemingly every two weeks, to be profoundly annoying. It's worse than drugstore makeup (not the makeup one way or the other; the idea of cranking out/discontinuing makeup in one fell swoop). What's up with that?

The split second I bought my treasured Stawberry Blonde, took her home and wore her a few times...I revisited the MAC site and discovered already a brand new collection there, instead of that cool Deneuve visage. Crap! Good thing I saved out a couple pics.

I hope the other manufacturers do not follow suit on this. Nars, for example...I look forward to the new collection, whatever it turns out to be. Always a few, distinct, well-thought-out items. Not bang, bang, bang.
