*PRODUCT LAUNCH* - MAC PRO Lip Palettes: Information & Images

As many of you will already know, MAC will be launching PRO lip palettes tomorrow. The PRO lip palettes are a MAC PRO product so will only be available at MAC PRO locations. The PRO lip palettes are great for anyone working in the makeup industry as you get 6 different lipstick shades in each palette meaning you're able to create a whole variety of different looks. The palettes are also small and compact meaning they're great to carry around in your kit.
The PRO palettes look absolutely amazing and I can guarantee that other lipstick lovers would agree with me. If you'd like to know more about the MAC PRO lip palettes, keep on reading!

How many palettes are there?
There are 5 different PRO lip palettes and each palette contains 6 different shades. The 5 different PRO lip palettes available are:
- Preferred Pinks
- Editorial Reds
- Editorial Oranges
- Select Plums
- Modern Browns

How much do the palettes retail at?
The palettes retail at $40.00 each. I'm not sure how much the palettes will retail at in the UK but my guess is around the £27.00 mark. 

Where are they available?
You will be able to buy the palettes at all MAC PRO locations (MAC PRO online & MAC PRO stores). MAC PRO stores also have a mail order service so if you’re not situated near a MAC PRO store you could always order over the phone. It's worth knowing that mail order delivery costs around £4.00 and you can also use your MAC PRO card over the phone.

How much product is in each palette?
Each palette contains 6g of product, meaning you get 1g of each different shade within the palette. I personally think this is a stingy amount as it’s something a makeup artist would use on a regular basis. One shade may be favoured over another too so I’m presuming one of these palettes won’t last a long time.

How much are the palettes actually worth?
A standard MAC lipstick contains 3g of product and retails at £14.00 so if you divided the price per gram that would be £4.66. There are 6 different shades in a PRO lip palette (1g per different shade) so £4.66 times by 6 would be £27.96. I’m hoping MAC price the palettes at around £25.00 as it wouldn’t be fair to pay to may more for them than they’re worth. 

So what do the PRO lip palettes look like and what shades do they contain?
