MAC It’s A Strike Limited Edition Collection


Hi Guys!

I have some gorgeous products from one of MAC’s latest upcoming ranges to share with you today – the It’s a Strike Limited Edition Collection is a really cute curated selection of products with a bowling theme. MAC have included a large selection of new as well as re-promoted products in the collection, including Lip Glasses, Eye Shadows, Nail Lacquers, and Fluidline Pens with play-on-words names related to all things bowling…

Head straight to the fast lane and have a ball with M∙A∙C IT’S A STRIKE! A range of lipstick and Creamsheen Glass IS RACKED IN RED. Rich Eye Shadow and Fluidline Pen shades will have everyone begging to join your league, while easy hues of casual colour are right up anyone’s alley. Prcatice a clean follow-through with three creamy colours of M∙A∙C Studio Nail Lacquer. Finally, knock them all down with the luminous allure of new Pearlmatte Face Powder.



Ok so let’s start with the lip products. I have a Lipstick in Bowl Me Over and a Cremesheen Lipglass in Throw a Spare. There are seven lipsticks in the collection with varying finishes including Matte, Retro Matte and Dazzle. Bowl Me Over is a gorgeous and autumnal deep brown toned red, and the Cremesheen Glass in Throw A Spare is a bright blue toned sheer fuchsia with a sparkly pearl finish.


  • Honeylove – light beige toned with rose (matte)
  • Flat Out Fabulous – bright plum matte (retro matte)
  • All Fired Up – bright fuchsia matte (retro matte)
  • Perfect Score – deep red (matte)
  • Bowl Me Over – deep burnt brown (retro matte) (online exclusive)
  • Liquid Lurex – tarnished gold (dazzle)
  • Babes And Balls – deep burgundy (matte)


  • It’s A Strike – soft nude pink
  • King Pin – deep chocolate mauve
  • Throw A Spare – fuchsia with pearl
  • Right Up My Alley – deep red
  • Spare Me – dark purple



There are also six single eyeshadows in the collection. I have Bowlarama which is an intense lime green with a satin finish. Now I know this shade does look a bit out there, but you can easily sheer it out for a hint of colour, or of course wear it applied layered up if you’re feeling daring!

Eye Shadow (£13.00

  • Gutter Gal – off-white grey (matte)
  • Bowlerama – bright lime green (satin)
  • Bowl Out – mid-tone grey (matte)
  • 300 Game – blackened cherry (matte)
  • Join My League? – dark espresso (matte)
  • Carbon – intense black (matte)



The Pearlmatte Face Powder (£24.00) has to be my favourite product though. Trophy has a fun skittles and bowling ball design, and this powder really does give the most beautiful sheen to the skin. Trophy contains four pearlmatte shades (top to bottom swatches above)  – a light lime green, a bright white, and a mid pink, which when swirled together, give a lovely light pink toned pearlmatte finish (bottom swatch)

There are also a few more products in the collection which I haven’t had the chance to try –

Fluidline Pen (£18.00)

Vintage Brown – deep dark brown
  • Retro Black – black
  • Indelibly Blue – deep navy blue

StudioNail Lacquer (£10.00)

  • Rack ‘Em Up – cool deep khaki (cream)
  • 5 Pin – deep wine (cream)
  • Baby Split – sheer lime green (cream)

Casual Colour (£18.50)

Have A Lovely Day! – neutral nude
  • Blind Score – dirty reddish lilac
