    I NEED Vintage Selection! *drool*

  2. Ru

    Can I get a final consessus on Feline staying put on the waterline?

  3. Haley

    It may seem boring but I am such a neutral lover so I basically want everything in this collection! Ok… Maybe not everything, but I especially want the chromagraphic pencil (metallic nude on waterline?? Hot!!) and fix + lavender .. I’ve wanted to try fix + for a long time and the lavender would be a nice touch

  4. cloudburst

    This is already available on PRO – is the release date still that far away?

  5. Janet

    *gasp*! I want EVERYTHING!! It’s been a while since a MAC collection appealed to me this much 😀

  6. Kelly

    Oh my gosh, I think I want all the lipsticks and Chilled on Ice, I will probably skip the permanent lipstick shades though since I can get them anytime!

  7. Liz

    Where are the swatches!?!? What a beautiful collection! Can’t wait to see it! ^_^ Gotta plan ahead for this one

  8. Rachel

    Ok, so I headed into my local pro store today and was introduced to this collection (they ladies JUST got it in the other day). It was off behind the main store in a small little alcove (looked like a powder room). And let me tell you! I went crazy. The colors in person (especially the paint pots!) are just exquisite! I live with an autoimmune disease called lupus which actually attacks my skin from time to time, and I am SUPER excited to get the calming lotion! I ended up pre-ordering a bunch. This is going to be a nice addition to add to my existing collection. I nearly bought the entire collection, but I wanted to save some for the upcoming peacock one. Don’t miss out on these limited editions ladies, you’ll regret it if you are a die hard MAC fan.

  9. Ada

    these colours are right up my alley! I’ll be checking out the quad, nail polishes, and vintage selection paintpot.

  10. Yen

    I previewed the entire line last week and I love it! FIX+ LAVENDER IS AMAZING!!!

  11. j

    haha did they use a black model to say :YES. BLACK WOMEN. YOU CAN BUY PRODUCTS FROM THIS COLLECTION TOO.

  12. Vanessa S

    I want 14 things from this collection…. ::Bites nails::

  13. Carlee

    I was wondering what the lavender lip conditioner will be like?is it colored, or does it just smell like that?:)

  14. Angie

    I have seen this collection at the MAC pro store… and I must say its pretty nice! The Chilled on Ice color is probably one of my favorites :)

  15. Lily

    I saw this collection and Stylishly Yours out in a mac counter last week. Wonder why they released it for sale, but not online.

  16. Gretchen

    Do you know when this is supposed to launch on the MAC website? I know it’s on, but I’d rather buy from from the MAC site. (free shipping codes, lol) It’s not up right now. =/

    • The official launch date is the 26th, but I don’t know when online will have it for sure, since it is the holidays, and I have no idea what their working schedule is like.

  17. Martina

    Is it me only, but MAC fluidline in ‘blacktrack’ put on the waterline smudges on me after 2-3 hours? It’s so annoying! It have such a watery eyes, that urban decay 24/7 in zero smudges, MAC smolder smudges, the fluidlines too. Even if I try to set it with a powder :( So annoying! 😀

  18. Bridget

    I want so much of this! But sadly, I’m broke after Christmas.

    Anyone know when this is going to be online? I’ve been stalking the website for days.

  19. jackey

    Is 12-26-10 the correct release date for this collection?

  20. Fatana

    Hey you guys Soooo

  21. kristi

  22. yadira


  23. Brooke

    Will this collection be released on the MAC website?

  24. Wondering why this isn’t up on MAC website yet? Do they not like their own collection? It’s been online at Macys and Nordstroms for a couple days now.

  25. Sammm

    is it just me or is it not out online yet? maybe there is somthing wrong on my end but it always shows up tartan tale on the m
    mac homepage? i live in the us

  26. i love this, they must have thought of me when creating this becuase i would wear it all and im a man =D i always have the type of no makeup makeup look lyk the girl in the white picture.
    for work, going out, etc EVERYTHING works for this collection im hoping, cant wait to go get some, im gonna be sad thought if its all sold out by the time i go to get it”!!

    i love it, im a beige girl through and through =D haha

    im going to buy all the lipsticks, some of the lipgeles, the powders and maybe a paintpot, chromagraphic pencil and possibly the tinted lip conditioner but i dont want the lavender scent to overpower my lips!


  27. hannah:)

    i LLOOOOVEEEEEE rose ole!!!! I WISH IT WAS PERMANENT!!! omg im gonna die if i dont have it lol

  28. Makavelina

    I can’t belive that I Get No Kick is SOLD OUT already!!! It was the only thing I wanted to buy 😀 I am pretty new to MAC limited collecions, so I have no idea, if an item is sold out so quickly, do they re-stock it, or is it totally gone for now?

  29. Alison

    I wonder if MAC released this knowing what champale is. They drank it in the hood in Boston in the late 60s/early 70s. My dad could tell you some stories

  30. this is so cool ! im gona get some (=

  31. Alli Winston

    really need some help here….so, I’m rahter new to MAC and getting back into the makeup swing of things (long story…) but trying to build my collection. I’m a pretty simple makeup girl, neutral, don;t take a whole lot of risks (working n that…) but I can’t decide bw chilled on ice or vintage selection for paint pots (i do have rsvp by benefit btw…), and eventhough these aren’t part of this collection, I am really looking for a blush that will be an everyday type color, and I’m bw well dressed and blushbaby. I’m pretty light, skin-tone wise – wear mineralized skin finish natural in light-medium and an NC20 for reference. I don;t have a MAC store nearby so i have to order online…and I jsut am unsure, so any help would be greatly appreciated by Christine or any of your fab followers!!! thanks all!
