Creations Hue: Dejarose

A striking bouquet of lush Bulgarian, Turkish, and Tea Red Roses is ruffled with dewy watery and luminous green nuances. Velvety petals of exotic orchid, lily, jasmine and peony are teased with a hint of crimson red raspberry and the gentle texture of pink pepper. The interplay of light and dark woods, weathered teak contrasting with patchouli, adds to the intensity, while hypnotic incense vapours and amber crystals lend a sense of intrigue and allure to this sensuous creation.

Fix+ Rose

    This collection sounds amazing. The MSF’s, the Fix+, the np, they’re all so great!

  4. ashley

    Another collection I’m going to need almost *everything* from! Well, at least I want everything! lol 😛 So pretty.

  5. Rachel

    I’m gonna skip Sugarsweet entirely and go for this one! I want Silverthorn eyeshadow, Blush of Youth, Circa Plum and maybe Fix+Rose!

  6. Lucy

    zzzzzz –Not meaning to rain on anyone’s parade, but I have been testing the C thru lip colors and the cheek gel.. the color payoff is puny. The lgs are “nice” but more of the same (the magnetique is cool, so is the virgin kiss).. the LS are also a bit more of the same. It feels like MAC has run out of ideas:( .. My wallet is happy tho!!

  8. Nathalie

    Based on the pics, nothing truly tempt me (apart Shadowy Lady but it’s a permanent e/s, right?). This lack of interest might be because I’m not into pink at all. Anyway, I hope it will be launched in France because I know my idea cannot be definitive if I haven’t seen the collection for true! 😉

  9. Kelsey

    So I’ve decided that the quad will be my purchase.
    And maybe mutiny.
    But probably not mutiny.
    Oh my.

  10. Yulia

    Greetings, my beauties!

    I’m new to this GREAT site & SO thrilled to’ve found it! Since it says here that “Rose Romance” launches 4/23, can anyone please tell me how does one get their hands on these products FAST (like on 4/23, lol!)???? ESPECIALLY when there’s no MAC store (nor any dept. store w/a MAC counter) ANYwhere w/in 90 miles? —- Fer instance, does MAC Online start selling this EXACT SAME collection (& I do mean ALLLL of it!) on their website on 4/23, too? // If not, what do I do, since this really IS an “OMG I’VE GOT TO HAVE SOME !” Collection, like so many of YOU already have said! 😀 I purposely live in a beautiful rural area (however, thus the 90-miles-to-MAC, too –alas), & I’m also usually house-bound due to chronic illnesses (e.g., Sarcoidosis & Fibromyalgia), so I REALLY NEED TO KNOW what the availability alternatives are for goils like me! DOES ANYONE OUT THERE HAVE AN ANSWER, PLEASE?!?!?

    Thanks so much!

  12. Farrow

    Thank you very much, Christine. I really appreciate your help — & thank you for answering so such quick help, too! Does MAC usually open their online doors at any specific time, EST, on that “2nd day before the launch”?
