Ulta’s reps are patient on the phone, but their solutions are just dismal – if a product is broken, I have to send it back before getting a refund (no other retailer/brand has made me do this). Neiman Marcus overnighted a Louboutin polish trio ($90 or something like that) after my order arrived broken without having to be asked for that solution, whereas Ulta makes it a pain to deal with an eyeshadow arriving broken that was $1.99, which is due to poor packaging – a bunch of compacts in a box with no padding or bubble wrap!

Sneak Peek: MAC x Star Trek Collection Photos & Swatches

MAC x Star Trek Collection
MAC x Star Trek Collection

I have a sneak peek of a sneak peek featuring MAC x Star Trek Collection, as I received a few pieces from the launch, but there are several more products releasing (about double what you see here) that I don’t have. I’m waiting to get official promotional imagery, and once I have that, I’ll post info about all the shades, but the pertinent details are: pre-sale for attendees of Comic Con right now, available online August 25th and in-stores September 1st (North America) at select locations. The collection features matte black packaging with a metallic silver Star Trek logo with the same style for the boxes.
