  1. Pretty sure I am going to get the Rimal Dahabia Eyeshadow Quad. It looks so pretty, and I only own 3 other MAC eye shadows, so for $40 thats a good price!

  2. Roxana

    I love the idea of a lot of these – especially those deep orange and green eyeshadows – but let’s be real, we’ll definitely need reviews of these quads to see if the quality is there. MAC’s quality seems to be getting better this year, but still – you never know.

    So, of course, thanks in advance for whatever you review, Christine!

    Is this where we’re MAC, re-releasing entire quads under new names?

    I still love my original Smoke Signals quad dearly, and if I were running out of any of the colors (except Carbon) I’d be excited. I hope for those who didn’t experience the quad the first time are shafted by the poor quality that’s been signature of MAC’s quads as of late.

  4. Melanie

    I want the blue & turquoise shadows.

  5. Kind of sneaky of Mac to repeat an entire quad under a different name. I actually don’t think it’s a bad idea to re-release limited quads, because the colours generally go very well together, but they might have at least given it the same name (it was from the Smoke Signals collection- I still have the original).

    Since I dyed my hair darker after the initial brow fluidline launch, I welcome the opportunity to pick up DDB, which will work better with my current colouring.

    eek! I must not miss out on the deep dark bruette brow creme again!

  7. I might need to check these out when they are released…>_<

  8. Wow. The promo image is stunning. None of the products really look exciting to me though

  9. Avatar of Amaree Amaree

    I’m glad to see the Fluidline Brow Gelcreme in deep dark brunette! I just wish they brought back the dirty blonde one too. I think my hair is too light for the brunette one. However, I think my dirty blond fluidline will last me a good while.

    I NEED both Reflects Glitters. They haven’t been made permanent in Denmark because we never had Pro Products here. I’ve been wanting those two forever!

  11. Jen

    Not thrilled with this stuff… Read “Art of the Eye” and got kind of excited as I love love love eyeshadow but this is a bit lacking for me. Especially being on a strict, strict budget right now. Gotta be choosy!

  12. Pass for me as well. ;)

    Boy, do I want the Rimal Dahabia Eyeshadow Quad!

  14. kendrixloves

    I hope you do a review of Parrot; It looks so pretty but probably dupable

  15. This looks like a decent collection compared to the last few. But still, nothing is screaming at me.

  16. Avatar of Pamela Pamela

    Is this a repromote of the crazy popular Parrot from a few years ago?

  17. Avatar of Amanda Amanda

    Am I the only one who thinks it’s a tad ridiculous to release a limited edition brow product? I mean it makes me not want to purchase just because I don’t know when it will be available again when I run out! It’s like releasing a limited edition shade of foundation.

    • Avatar of Sydney Sydney

      I agree. I use Mac for many, if not most of my makeup products but they really don’t have any good brow products.

      The only thing I can think of is maybe they are testing out how well these brow gelcremes do before they make them permanent?

  18. I’m not really interested in this collection either. I have to say I absolutely love the Rimal Dahabi quad. This is definitely my kinda quad, but I do feel I already have very comparable and much beloved MAC dupes for this collection already.

  19. Dimsixx

    Interesting that they would release a collection like this around this time of year! Feels more like a Fall or Winter collection. (Might be why people are less interested)

  20. Avatar of Daisies Daisies

    Ooooh finally some new eye shadows I can actually get excited about! Hopefully the mattes won’t disappoint!

  21. MERI

    no lipsticks? :(

  22. Banafshe Sharifian

    OMG Banafsajie is my name in Arabic!!! It means “purple.” Yay! I have to buy it now! :)

  23. Avatar of Nugget David Nuggets

    SOOOO EXCITED TO SEE PARROT AGAIN!

  24. Avatar of Street Jaime Jaime R.

    Parrot is coming back?! I’m dying.

  25. Ashley

    PARROT!!!!!!! OMG I have been waiting for this eyeshadow to be repromoted for three years…I’ve always wanted it!!!!

  26. neka

    Is that Jessica Alba in the promo photo? Just curious.

  27. J

    Hmmm, Parrot is stated as a ‘matte’ online rather than a frost as stated here, just fyi.

  28. Zoe Stellman

    Out now on the UK website as well as Temperature Rising, In Extra Dimensions, Baking Beauties and Fashion Sets!! Ordered all my items, phew!!!

  29. Where are the swatches?? Are there any?
