MAC x Julia Petit Collection will launch online on March 12th, 2015 now March 19th (as of 3/12 9AM PST) (North America) and at select MAC locations on March 19th, 2015 (North America); international date is “March 2015″ (please call your local counter/store for more information). My favorite product was Linda Blush (A), followed by Boca Lipstick (A). The eyeshadow duos were a major miss for me, even if they were interesting color pairings, because one shade in each duo was troublesome.
