  1. Love Peace and Mac

    I want it all!!

  2. Elle

    Seriously – make Feline permanent already!! :)

  3. Ryan

    omg thats the new alexander mcqueeb model! shes the main girl on the website.

  4. Maxi

    It’s a done deal, all of the Paint Pots are MINE! >:)

  5. MARGO


  6. Courtney

    Not really digging the colours or seeing anything special in this collection. Maybe I’ll get the quad if that. Hopefully Peacocky will be better.

  7. Lisa

    YAAAYY!!! MAC is REALLY REALLY being nice on my wallet for these past few collections :D:D:D cant tell u how happy i am that the only thing that interests me here is FELINE!!!! thanks Christine

  8. Hannah

    Yay for new paintpots! I think I’m skipping on the quad, I have every shadow except for caviar dreams… not worth it.

  9. Jackie

    What are the Chromagraphic pencils supposed to be used for?

  10. Banan

    I’ve made my list but I’ll have to wait to see them in person or see swatches on here!

  11. Jennifer

    wow so excited for this!!

  12. Marcela

    even though i lean towards dramatic, intense colors, i’m super excited for this collection because i see these colors working beautifully during winter. especially excited for new paint pots, the highlighting powders and lipsticks!

  13. LU

    I’ll be skipping this one, just getting a lip conditioner I need anyway!

  14. Jennifer

    That promo pic seems way too severe for what sounds like a light, sparkling, “bubbly” collection. Strange choice!

  15. pia

    Hello chilled on ice paint pot! Come to mama!!! 😀

  16. Kelly C.

    Thank you for updating this post with pictures! So far all I really really want is the Dangerous Cuvee paint pot, and perhaps one of the lipgelees.

  17. Somehow the promo image reminds me of Narnia.

  18. FYI people, I covered backstage during last weeks New York Fashion Week and this stuff was at just about every show. Beautiful collection. I’m excited to finally see it come out in stores.

  19. Kristen

    Yay for new paint pots! Can’t wait to get my hands on the white gold one and the grey one!

  20. TheMiaomi

    Paint pots!!
    Calm Mode needs to be permanent already

  21. ak

    The model for the campaign is ugly but at least she’s unique with it. I like her hair and strong cheekbones.

    Also Flustered lipstick and the lip gelees sound good, and the paint pots. Oh OK also the beige lip conditioner.

  22. Judy

    I have to say. I feel that this collection is suppose to represent natural, gentle and calm, but the model is scaring the bejesus out of me. Yikes! She’s seems too rough for this collection.
    Not to be a major pain Christine, but any idea when the Stylishly Yours collection photos will be up?

  23. Jeanna

    Fix + Lavender!!!!!! :) And FELINE! Never tried it, so I can’t wait. OH AND PAINT POTSS!! HOLLLAAAA!!!

  24. audrey

    Well hellooooo there, wearable colours…. $_$

  25. Cheyenne *DemureAllure*

    AHH!! This is the collection for me <3

  26. i’ve never had feline! so i think i’m gonna grab on for me and one for a friend whos birthday is at the beginning of january! is it possible to call the store and reserve products?!

  27. veneta

    Yes yes yes! I’m so excited about this collection! I don’t liked the last two LEs, except the Maleficent nailpolish, so finally something pretty nude stuff. =)

  28. Did MAC really think it was a good idea to have a model’s nipple showing?

  29. cloudburst

    I’m excited for the new paint pots – don’t see many new colours for those. Not in love with the promo pic. She looks angry.

  30. stephanie

    I don’t understand the difference between Feline and Smoulder! Aren’t they both black eyekohls?

    Also what does a chromagraphic pencinl do and is it worth getting fix + lavender if I dont have fix plus yet?

  31. metallady

    i cant wait for this collection.i love sparkly nudes! when is this comming to the UK?????? :)P.s. love your website/info on these brand Temptalia :)

  32. Natalie

    This looks like the most boring collection ever.

    I’ll save my sheckels for something more exciting.

  33. I’m definitely going to be hitting up the paint pots!!

  34. Natalie

    Everything here looks so gorgeous! I might feel a little faint when this comes out and I buy it all. SO beautiful!

  35. jenna

    yay for the return of quiet please!!!! i love this lipstick and was so sad that it was limited edition. i am going to be buying three of these!!

  36. ugh, why does this have to launch on Boxing day in canada… its going to sell out SOO quick. T____T”

  37. Riri

    Yes! Feline is back. Ready to stock up.

  38. Maddy

    i hope the tinted lip conditioner will be similar to the feelin good one from the warm and cozy collection! i regret not buying it! so if this is anything like it im buying two!

  39. ooh, these gorgeous items are right up my alley!

    i’m considering:
    bubble lounge, sin-tillation, luxure lipgelees
    chilled on ice, vintage selection paint pots
    fix + and lavander

    i was a bit undecided for a moment about whether or not to pick up a couple of felines but i hate sharpening pencil eyeliners so that was an easy pass.

  40. Melissa

    I can’t wait to see the swatches!!! I have a Mac gift card waiting for this collection!!!!

  41. Victoria N.

    You can totally see the models nipple through her plastic like dress lol werd.

  42. Kendra

    I’m loving that palette I have so many ideas for i i cant wait!!!!!

  43. Yanna

    I can’t wait for the paint pots!!! I think those are what I’m most excited about =) I would go for the quad, but retrospeck and brule are already permanent. And I already have a bout 5 or 6 backups of Et Tu, Bouquet?, it’s the one eyeshadow I use the most on my brides!!! I’m not too crazy about caviar dreams though. Thanks for the pictures!!!

  44. This is the collection that I am saving up for. I wonder if my pro discount will apply for this collection since it isn’t associated with an established name like Disney. Regardless, I have to get the paint pots. :)

  45. I’m excited for the Caviar Dreams Eyeshadow Quad! I have Brule, nothing special but it’s a handy shade to have. Dying to try Retrospeck out, and the two others look great, too. Finally a palette that I actually want!
    I wonder if the Fix+ Lavender will be a succes, seeing as the originel smell is divine enough already.

  46. Sharron

    So… Am I the only who immediately thought of the malt liquor when I saw the name of this collection? To quote the Beastie Boys, “I got class like pink Champale.”

    I’ll probably pick up Feline and one of the nail polishes, but fortunately for my wallet, the rest of the collection doesn’t really do it for me.

  47. Louise

    Christine, do you know if there are any other MAC launches coming up before/around early December? :)

  48. gabriella

    my list :
    paint pot- chilled on ice, chromographic pencil nc15/nw20
    special reserve highlight power in chez chez lame
    and i have to check the lipgelees and lipsticks in person or when i see swatches.. i want almost all!!! :)

  49. Olivia

    Finally a scented Fix+ to replace the plain smelling one. I love that they are offering it in Lavender! I was so sad when they discontinued Fix+ Rose so this will make me happy again :-)

  50. Amanda Dubs

    Can someone tell me what is so good about the paint pots? They don’t work as a base for me. They crease terribly after awhile. Have to use a base under that base haha.

  51. Grace

    Fix Plus, lavender, gelees, and new powders?

  52. Maggie

    Hey Christine! My beloved MAC guy showed me the collection info for the holiday trio, and the Special Reserve Highlight powders are marked at $28 :)

  53. Sophie Rosalind

    I want ALL of this. now!!

  54. Ali B.

    Those paint pots look promising!

  55. Amelia

    Boring!!!!!! too plain for MAC!!!

  56. gondolberga

    i want the fix+ lavender since it should smell so good!

  57. Mrs.Mac

    I’m really xcited for the eyeshadow quad! Can’t wait! I’ll be first in line

  58. Nimmi

    oh wow that comfort cream sounds alot like BB creams. I wonder if it’s because of popular demand in Asia that they’re trying it out in the U.S?

    For your information, BB creams are these tinted mosturizer/skincare product/ sunscreen. Many people absolutely love this product and it’s a major major hit in Asia.

  59. Macy

    This collection looks amazing! I’m so excited for everything! Any idea when you’ll be putting more pictures and swatches up, Christine? Definitely saving up my money now!

  60. Josie

    I can’t wait for this.. I want all the skin stuff and the paint pots! Did anyone notice the models nipple in the image. hmmm?

  61. Kelsey

    Ahhh so excited for the felines and paint pots!

  62. Omg this is my type of collection i love chamoagne, pink, brown, gold nd beige based nudes its so modern nd fresh nd mac do it best all my xmas money willvgo on this wen is it released in uk? Xx

  63. Trisha

    I honestly have not been impressed with much that MAC has launched recently. But I have to say I am jumping up and down about new paint pots!!! The grey and white gold sound AMAZING!!!!!!!!

  64. Kelley

    excited for this!! yayyy!!

  65. esme

    hi christine, do you know how much the Fix + & the lip conditioners will be?

  66. Ellen

    Wow! Gorgeous colors, I am sooo excited! Quick question, though, which lipstick is the second one from the right? It’s BEAUTIFUL!

  67. Skye

    I was just wondering if there will be a unavailing party on the 21st?
    I’ve always wanted to go to one and just wanted to know if that’s how stores do it ?

  68. Heather

    I have my eye on….. everything in this collection :-)
    Kind of reminds me of the recent Chanel pearl collection you posted

  69. Caroline

    yay! new paint pots!!!!! :)

  70. Hilary

    Loving the Lipgelees and the new Tinted Lip Conditioner. What does the SPF 15 Lip Conditioner in Lavender mean? (new scent?)

  71. This is seriously the first MAC collection in a while that I want everything!!! mostly the paint pots!!!

  72. Evelyn

    pale lips are completely my thing!!
    cant wait to try the highlight powders too :)

  73. Polly

    Sorry, I don’t know the ropes around here… but do you generally swatch (on lips esp) before the release date? Like do you get a media-pass advance on the products or something :) Thanks! xx
    I’m liking the look of the tinted lip conditioner. I own a plain one but even then, my lips are too dry for nude lipsticks, even lustres/glazes. So maybe this could work!!

  74. ms.mad

    Cham-Pale and Stylishly your was just released on mac pro’s website. Will you be doing any swatches.False lashes mascara is also on there. Dying to see swatches and getting ready to place a nice big order. Just waiting for all your info, which is always a GREAT help. Thank You

  75. Lannet Samson

    Hi Christine! The Cham Pale and Stylishly Yours collection is available online for PRO members as of today! By any chance, will you be swatching any of these items soon?! I’m really undecided on the paint pots. Hope to hear from you soon! Take Care and Happy Holidays 😉

  76. luvnhelloktty

    looking forward to getting the paint pots and highlight powder can’t wait for swatches

  77. Elizabeth

    Which lipstick in the picture is the third one from the left?

  78. Ally

    does anyone know what the prices are for the tinted lip conditioner and the fix+ lavender?? thanks!

  79. Nadine

    I can’t wait for your swatches of this collection! Especially of the nail polishes and the paint pots.

  80. i’m no prude and living in France i’m used to seeing plenty of nude ads, but for US , it’s kind of shocking that MAC chose to blatantly put a nipple in their ad that will undoubtedly be in poster-size format in malls across America. it’s trying a little to hard IMO.

  81. HC

    Um, is that her nipple showing in the promo pic??????????????

  82. Evelyn

    looks like they took some inspiration from lady gaga :)

  83. Tracey

    Yeah can’t wait until I can finally get Feline. Paint Posts look interesting as well.

    I wonder if they noticed how see through that dress was. Not a bit deal of course but yeah hahaha.

  84. Paula

    Very Platnium nail polish and Calm Mode tinted lip conditioner looks gooooood!

  85. Eliza

    My wallet cries today.

  86. Addison

    Does anybody know if it will be online in the US on the 26th as well?

  87. How much is the Complete Comfort Creme in CND? No one seems to know.

  88. Vijaya

    I only just realized the model’s plastic dress thing in that one image is see through.

  89. ViscaCatalunya

    How much are the illuminators?

  90. Laura

    Excited! 😀

  91. Maggie

    OMG, I really hope they *actually* misspelled “Lavender” on the Fix+ bottles. That would be hilarious :D. Seriously, why does nobody in the marketing world ever seem to use spell-check?

  92. Love the First Promo pic…Its EXOTIC!!! I am eyeing the Highlighter…Paint pots? Not sure…Personally enjoy the creaselss cream shadows better…

  93. Tiffany S

    I need all the paint pots!

  94. Hannah

    Would you mind quickly explaining the difference in formula between the Eye Kohls and Power Kohls? Thanks!

  95. Jenn

    Whoa! Why didn’t they photoshop out the Caucasian model’s nipple/breast? I hope that won’t be in the store promos.

  96. asha

    Happy Bday Christine :)

  97. Honor

    Love this collection. Do we know when we Will be able to see swatches?

  98. EEK! Two new collections launching on the same day??! Eh! I’m holding out for the Mickey Contractor Collaboration-BUT there has been soo much talk in the beauty world about Feline Kohl pencil that I HAVE to pick one up.

    Definitely will check out the new paint pots…I bought Rubanesque as my first one ever and I kinda regret it because I’m NC44.5 and its very sheer on me! Would love to get soft Ochre, Indianwood and Constructivist from the permanent line first before getting any frosty finish ones!

    Man, I’m going to broke once the collections come to the UK!

  99. Marjolijn

    The products look pretty, but what on Earth did they do to the models in the promo pics? The dark girl looks like a crumpled newspaper and the white girl just looks weird. I bet they’d be much prettier without the makeup on 😛

  100. I’m excited for the collection, but the pictures of the models are absolutely horrid. MAC could have done way better.
