    So pretty but SOOOOooooooo EXPENSIVE!!!!!!

  2. Anahi

    WOW, that is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

  3. Love the packaging, but for the lip stuff will need to decide once you post up lip swatches =D

    Thanks for the info!

  4. mabelm

    Ohmy!!! I need them! fabulous cool new line!

  5. Joyce

    Beautiful packaging! Since I’m very into vintage looking things, I will pick up something from this collection. The lipgloss and lipstick colors are right up my alley! :) The clutch wasn’t what I was expecting, though. It’s very simple and kinda throws everything off. :(

  6. dedra williams(maclove1)

    what omg :/ now i have to buy this smh im going broke on mac lol j/k i love it sooo yeah i will be buying these .thanks for the info

  7. amy

    This is probably one of my favourite MAC Couture collect thus far, but it is so expensive and I bought so much from MAC this year already. I would love to pick up a compact but I would probably only get one of the lipsticks. Either Prive or Treasured.

  8. glitter princess

    dont think its worth the money!

    • cmferrets

      me either! i think all of this is wayyy out of my mac price range! even thought the packaging it beautiful, it looks like the same colors that have come out earliuer this year.

  9. jolenz

    Thanks for the info! Love this so far…clutch is okay but everything else is something to think about. Definitely the lip stuff…

  10. jolenz

    I forgot to add: beautiful packaging…I love Baroque style…it’s a must for MAC collector’s.

  11. Nic

    I didn’t expect to be impressed by this collection, but now I’m thinking I may be interested. Will definitely wait for lip swatches to see if it’s worth it, but the packaging does look lovely.

  12. Jamie

    I absolutely love the packaging! So far, I thinking about picking up at least 2 of the lipsticks, but my final decision will be after you post your pictures/opinions of the product. Everything else in the collection is horribly overpriced.

  13. Miss_M

    The packaging is so gorgeous, it’s just too pretty to use !!

    Love the sound of Prive and Lap of Luxery. The powder is also lovely, but that’s probably going to be E60,- euros in Europe, which I think is a little too expensive.

  14. Catherine

    Love the packaging so much, but will without a doubt skip because of the price =(

  15. Jennifer

    So gorgeous! My dreams have come true lolz

  16. I ove the packaging but I might have to skip this collecton :( I want to see swatches though so I’ll wait. No final decision yet…

  17. daphne

    While I have no interest in the products so won’t be buying any, I’m really impressed with how beautiful the packaging is!

  18. Tattoo Girl

    I know I will have to get at least one thing for my collection. Probably Baroque Boudoir or Treasured lipstick!!

  19. Michelle

    i want the compact but they don’t make it for darker skin tones? what’s going on with that???
    very disappointed

    • Tracy

      I agree you on that, I think I’ll pass..

    • I agree as well. Being an NW45, it does infuriate me when MAC creates beauty/mystery powders and they neglect the darker skin tones. I wish the artistic directors would show us some love with these as well.

  20. I love the compact!! The damask print on the compact is just like the stencil I did all over my bathroom. I want everything, except the clutch. ;) I don’t think the clutch is worth it.

  21. bernice

    damnit, why must the compact be so pretty <_<

  22. Jacqueline

    freestanding.. does that mean mac counters? and is it gonna be available at nordstorm and macy’s? cus i love this collection!

  23. Avatar of Alice Alice

    can’t wait.

    Christine, can you tell me what mystery powder is? It sounds enticing enough..

  24. NaNa

    That mystery powder compact just calls to me… ;___; I might be seduced into buying everything just for the packaging! Ugh… maybe when swatches come out I’ll calm down.

    • I agree, the mystery powders call me, but I thought I was the only one that felt as though my powder disappeared so quickly in the last mystery powder released. However, my friend and I are sitting here together and she said “Yours did too?” So, I just wish they had more product inside. Small circle inside the compact, but they look so so beautiful.

  25. that lipgloss packaging is amazing! I wish limited edition things like this would be refillable or have the caps of the glosses be interchangeable so you can spice up your usual colors when these are finished!

  26. Jenn

    Hmm, Prive reminds me of Creme Cup. Gotta love the blue based pinks!

    • Paula

      Even on the website, the two lipsticks have almost the same description:

      Lipstick, Creme Cup
      Shade description: Light blue pink (Cremesheen)

      Baroque Boudoir Lipstick, Privé
      Shade description: Creamy light blue pink (Cremesheen)

      I originally fell in love with Privé but they were sold out. So I went through all their regular lipstick color to try to find something similar, and found Creme Cup for about ten bucks cheaper for the same amount of product.

      I still love their packaging for this collection though. So maybe I’ll get just one lip gloss. Preciousness seems really pretty.

  27. Vivi

    Aw. I love it.
    I’ll get at least a lipglass or a lipstick! Can’t wait to swatch them.

  28. joolz2u

    gorgeous lippies, but as always will need swatches! even so, i think i would only pick up one item. i’m definitely spending too much on mac!

  29. Anitacska

    Gorgeous packaging, especially the glosses. I’ll see about the shades in person though. However, $60 for a powder, me thinks no!

  30. aksaiyo

    beautiful packaging, will get a gloss for sure
    Which one do you suppose is the peachy one? the descriptions are all pink…. and which gloss is the one in the top picture???
    thanks a lot!

  31. karen

    I want those lipglosses so bad. I love the packaging.

  32. Kate

    Oh, I can’t wait! It’s beautiful.

  33. jukipa

    the clutch looks like a garbage bag :P

  34. vmn

    love the lipgloss
    love the lipsticks
    love the powder
    hate the clutch

  35. Avatar of Heather Heather

    Absolutely not worth the price. The quality is the same. I will not pay for fancy packaging. Pass.

  36. Avatar of Valerie Valerie C.

    Stunning packaging!! I love Mac formulas anyway…I’d love to have one of each! My favs are Baroque Boudoir l/s, Preciousness l/g and Lt/Med Compact!! Good for holiday gifts too!

  37. Ann

    Oh geez… I have to have everything!!!

  38. Avatar of Jenn jenn

    I’m still so mad about the lack of coordinating brushes for this collection :(
    Ugh, that bag is so ugly…tell me they thought they’d sell more crappy bags instead of luxe brushes. Bad choice MAC!!!

  39. Tracy

    So pretty – but we don’t have a MAC Pro or free standing store around here – and I would want to swatch…. I can’t wait to see your swatches – I could always change my mind.

  40. J

    Oooh I want Treasured lipstick :) and everything else just for the packaging XD

  41. My-Linh

    The packaging is amazing! So incredibly beautiful, but definitely out of my price range. Maybe I’ll wait until finding it at one of my CCOs? It’ll depend on your trusty swatches though of course (and my own when I have a chance) :)

  42. The packaging looks so beautiful. I would love to have a couple lipsticks and glosses for my collection. The mystery powder is too expensive for it to disappear so quickly. If you look at it, it is very small in diameter, then within about fifteen uses I started to hit pan. For the cost, I should have just used it as a mirror only. This is so feminine.

  43. Avatar of traci Traci

    I’m going to get pretty much everything! I’m saving all my money for this collection! I do have one question though, what do you do with the lipstick and lipgloss tubes once they’re finished? They’re too pretty to throw away, but what I can’t let a product just sit there, I have to use it.

  44. Avatar of Kristin Kristin

    I’m tempted by a couple of things. Does anyone think these are actually higher quality products, or is the extra price just for the packaging?

  45. Sofia

    Wow those prices are such a rip-off. Nothing looks unique either. What happened when limited edition mac stuff used to be the same price? That clutch looks like a body bag. An easy pass for me.

  46. kaleen123

    The clutch looks like a trash bag, haha

  47. Brittany

    this has seriously depressed me!

    i want all 6 of the lip items. The packaging alone…OMG. They look like the perfect pink, berry and nude lip combos. I must get atleast one, but what?! I cant decide. WHY MAC, WHY!!??

  48. Deirdre

    I am not giving into the packaging. I have the sheer mystery power from hello kitty that I have not used. I also have it from the stylistc collection, so not getting this one. The rest, how many pink lipglosses can I have??

  49. Angie

    The clutch is so expensive!
    Love the designs

  50. First of all, the design on the packaging for this collection looks SO unoriginal and CHEAP. That same design has been used on all different products from ALL different brands/companies, including Old Navy, GAP, Hallmark, Papyrus, etc!!! It’s just a pretty filigree chandelier looking design. It’s probably just cheap aluminum. And they say ” You’re paying for the quality…” I would think $15 for a lipstick and $30 for pressed powder would be a high enough price for good quality… I love all the lipsticks/lipglasses/pressed powders I have already purchased from the permanent collection. I guess I just prefer the original chic black packaging to this boring unoriginal look MAC is totally over-charging for. And the clutch. R U 4 REAL!?!? Omgggg I’d much rather spend that money om a CUTE evening clutch from Nordstrom or something… One that doesnt look like a crumpled up trash bag that I just used to pick up my puppy’s turds. I really do expect more from MAC. twitter.com/niknasty

  51. Brittany

    agreed the bag is UGLY!! dnt think I would even pay a dollar for it.

  52. shangrila

    Boooooooooo! Really, MAC? REALLY?

  53. Anya

    Piolo Pascual has all the lip gloss .bleh for you britanny .

  54. rehana

    love the collection and everything about Mac would love to work for Mac beautifull make-up

  55. Emm

    Pretty packaging and lovely colors. Still don’t know if that justifies the price.

  56. Jasmine

    The packaging is to die for, but it’s all pretty expensive.

  57. Tonia I.

    Either you love it or hate it. For me personally think it looks like a cheap wallpaper.

  58. Sweetpearl

    Is this going to be available only at mac stores?

  59. I swatched the glosses and they are GORGEOUS!!!! The pearl effect gives them a unique, sparkle effect like nothing I have seen in a gloss before. I will definitely be picking up all 3 of them!!!

  60. Claudia V.

    The clutch is horrible, it looks like a trash bag.

  61. ms.mad

    christine will you be doing any swatches? thanks

  62. Avatar of Melissa Melissa

    Thanks for this review. They’re hard to come by this early into release. I’ve already ordered two Privé l/s (I know that color will sell out fast), one Baroque Boudoir l/s and one D’Nouveau l/g. Does anyone find it disturbing that I already know the spelling/names of every color?! I. am. insane.

    I don’t know how I can pass on that compact. Oh my Gawd! I could see pressing a lip gloss/stick into the center of the compact after the powders (remember there is a refill) have been used up. I just don’t know what color is most appropriate for my skin type. I wear Esteé Lauder foundation because it doesn’t have SPF (allergic), and I use the lightest shade, but right now I’m a little orange looking because I’ve been eating so much butternut squash. LOL! This, too, shall pass however.

    I WANT that compact!

    ROFL at the comment about the bag looking like a trash bag. It is fugly, isn’t it?!

    • I’d opt for the lightest shade, which is Light Medium, which will probably be too dark for you, but maybe you can pop it out and give it to a friend and put something else in it if you really want the compact :D

  63. kathy

    is this going to be on the bay ?

  64. Sheryl

    The lip products are AMAZING. Definitely worth $22.

  65. Emm

    I love preciousness but $22 for a lipgloss that is nutty!
