    I would have loved it MAC brought back items from their old collections. Like Force lipstick from their Venus collection. CYY was just here. If it’s going to be a “bring back” collection then lets bring back from collections going back from 1998 – 2008 or so. Seriously Mac. Doesn’t mean I’m not going to vote. Cult of Cherry lipglass, Shitaki lipstick and Jete eyeshadow will get my votes.

  2. Ericka

    Why can’t mac bring back any glitters, pigments, brushes, or gift sets in this collection? I would love to see them bring back the lipmix compact, coco beach pigment, and black and gray glitter.

  3. Lexia

    OMG!!! 3N!!! it’s the perfect nude pink lipstick!!!! i needz it. oh and a backup of moth brown xD

  4. alexis

    BEST idea mac has ever had!! But why dont they bringback ripe peach, swiss chocolate quad and pleasureflush msf!! lol

  5. alexis

    the coolest thing about this would be if they brought them all back in their special LE packaging :)

  6. I love this. Finally a brand is listening to the ones who make it all possible — US! I missed out on CYY and would love to get that baby in my hands. I could do without the lipglass but would love to try either bait or icescape. Might I add that while looking for swatches of icescape online a very young Temptalia popped up on my screen! You looked so young, gorgeous and tan, Christine! Still gorgeous of course. Haha :) Also, I LOVE SOLAR WHITE. It shall be mine!! ::fingers crossed:: I’m curious if MAC will have a purchase limit and will be smart enough to make a ton of product so we don’t all lose our minds.

    Time to start saving up to hoard every tube of 3N & Candy Yum Yum that I can!! Wow what a great thing to find out on a Monday morning!!

  8. I would vote for firespot, lavendar whip, port red and the MAC for playboy collection (just because I am a collector)

  9. Jemma

    So this is the collection i heard about last year. I must say i am very disappointed, i was expecting a whole lot more :0(

  10. bettynova

    Where is Ever hip? Where is Cut a Caper?

    • grace

      Last year Everhip came out as a repromote with the Fashion Flower collection..Did u pick up one then?

  11. bettynova

    Where is Jealousy wakes?

  12. Mariana

    But what about Smoke & Diamonds, Graphology, Signed & Sealed, Birds & Berries, Sweet Sienna, Gold Mode, etc etc etc ???
    And only 3 “winner” items per category? And only available online?
    I suggested to MAC a Blast from the Past Collection and they responded that they had this ‘contest’. I think my idea is better. ‘Blast from the Past’ could be a sort of permanent collection that changes every season to give a chance at acquire very coveted items.

    I’m not from the US and in my country MAC does not sale online. This is lame

  13. gmarie

    *sigh* the two lippes I want the most are the bottom 2 in the votes (shitake and rocker) :(
    I’ll keep voting

  14. Valene

    Candy Yum Yum will surely win out here and be back. I will have to buy a backup, it’s amazing.

  15. Judith

    The Rocker looked so good on you in your blog pic! It’s got your name on it.

  16. grace

    i saw it said fall 2012 internationally-when is that for australia/new zealand.. (i know we are usually last but keen to know what month..)

  17. Melissa

    Moxie. That is all.

  18. Julia

    Does anyone know if the winning eyeshadows would also be sold in the pans, or will they only be sold in pots?

  19. kim

    I wish Brave l/s and Cheris l/s from Style Warriors and Cult of Cherry will come back

  20. jennifer tran

    christine will the request makeup sell only online or online and in stores?

  21. Ashley

    I am so excited for the 3N lipstick, and Emancipation lipglass!!

  22. lilinah

    Anywhere to see pics of all these shades in one place? I didn’t vote because i’m unfamiliar with most of these products.

  23. makeupthatsmiles

    hey christine, i wished mac had added macs flute to the list of by request since i wanted to get my hands on that eyeshadow for forever! do you have any dupes for it? 

  24. Rinoitah

    Christine do you know the exactly day of the launch here in USA?

  25. Rinoitah

    I agree with U…there’s a lot of places that are not selling this online…it’s sucks…that’s why I have to ask a favor to a friend who live in USA just to get the lipsticks :/

  26. Hazel

    Hello Christine, I want to order the Candy Yum Yum but I can’t for I live in the Philippines. :-(
