MAC Cham-Pale Collection

MAC Cham-Pale Collection… It’s coming!

I’ve spent the past several hours photographing, swatching, cropping, and now begins the process of reviewing.  Stay tuned–am trying to get through all of the reviews today.  I will review Stylishly Yours separately, and those reviews will not be available until Sunday or Monday, depending on how much I’m able to get done today.

    So excited for this collection! I want 6 or 7 items. I’m on the fence about the nail polishes, can’t wait to see them applied.

  2. Christina

    I’m looking forward to your reviews & swatches. Right now I’m very much on the fence about this collection and your opinion and photos always play a major part on whether a product is really special and worth getting.
    Thank you so much for doing this!

    oh gosh christine, you are a gem! i’m going to be out of town when this collection comes out, and EVERYTHING looks right up my alley, which i haven’t felt about a collection in a long time. there is no way i would be able to get to a mac store to check these out in person, so your swatches are going to be (and always are) a godsend!!! i’m so excited!!! :)

    this collection is available in my local MAC counters now. Calm Mode Tinted conditioner color is so nude. I love it so much.

    i bought a few on Fix+ Lavender & Tinted Conditioner to stock up. Fix+ smells 10 times better than one from A Rose Romance (Fix+ Rose)

    Others are just too shimmery for me. So I skipped.

  17. Ooooooh I am so excited for this especially the lip gelees 😀

  18. chica

    I don’t think I’ve EVER been this excited about a MAC collection! I can’t wait for your reviews and swatches. Thank you for all of the hard work and effort you put into Temptalia. It really shows and puts your site one above the rest.

  25. Isadora

    how did you get all these products before the collection launched?

  26. I’m really excited for this collection- especially the Paint Pots and the two powders. I can only get one powder, so I’m hoping your swatches will help me decide!

  27. Kim

    I’m so excited!!! :)

  28. Nicole

    christine – honestly, this is by far the best makeup/beauty blog on the web. your photos are fantastic. thank you SO MUCH for the work you do. i love this website SO much.

  31. Lena

    Thanks sooooo much for always doing reviews so thoroughly, quickly, and beautifully. I can’t wait to see what you think of the Paint Pots…I trust your judgment more than any other beauty blogger’s =D

  32. divinem (Melissa)

    I hate the visible texture of the highlighters. *shiver* Definitely looking forward to new paint pots, reviews, swatches. Thx, Christine!

  33. Rae

    Oh!! *clutches heart* Now THAT is a gorgeous photo!

  34. Alyssa

    Now this is my kind of collection.

  35. Sami

    I’m spending all my christmas money on collection! I want the quad and the paint pots soooo bad!! And the “I got no kick” or w/e it’s called Eye kohl, goodness. I’m getting so giddy just thinking about it!:D

    Also, I have a question. How do the lipgelees compare to lipglasses? I want to be able to like them but I don’t want to spend the money if they’re the same since I really hate the consistency of the lipglasses.

    • Hi Sami,

      I will answer all questions in the review, please be on the look out for it! You can also check out previous reviews on lipgelees or read MAC’s website for a description.

      • Sami

        Okay! Haha, I was so excited for this collection I wasn’t even thinking that, duh!, you would be reviewing everything…haha.

    however, not loving that its out in january… that means increased VAT prices in the UK >_<

  37. sophie

  38. Stephanie

    Are there Face Charts for this collection? They were not on MAC’s website…

  39. Alison
