Thanks to MAC, I was able to try out three (Warm Chill, Blue Flame, and Climate Bleu) of the seven upcoming shadows and two of the four (High 90s and Swelter) (five?) upcoming slimshines from Cool Heat!  Of course, you know I had to get photos and swatches as soon as I got my hands on them, right?

Check out more photos…

    warm chill looks SOO COOL when is this coming out?

  2. Sonia

    Oh please, ‘Blue Flame’ looks just like bell bottom blue pigment pressed, but without the glitter. And BBB was extremely similar to Blue storm pigment. When are MAC going to stop recycling so many of their colours?
    ‘Warm Chill’ looks like Waternymph.

    • B

      LOL, I know right? That so aren’t foolin’ me anymore. I love the collection promo pics but seems like these eye shadows are lacking originality.

    • I haven’t pressed it, but they are similar, regardless. I think Waternymph was more teal? I can’t remember, lol.

  4. Julie

    hey christine! I was just wondering, were you able to buy these from the SF pro store? Are they out already? Thank you!

  5. Thanks for these…warm chill is less green than I thought it would be!

  6. Yvette

    Gulf Stream is the one..that’s all I have to say..

  7. Gena

    So pretty! I called SF Pro & they don’t have the collection yet :*<

  8. tatiana

  9. Thalia

    I cannot wait for this collection to come out in stores!!

  10. Jennifer

    Climate Blue is so gorgeous..I want it now!!! :)

  11. natasha

    how similar is blue flame to deep truth? or is it a better texture?

  12. Erin

    The colors look gorgeous. I’m trying to avoid getting Blue Flame because I have Deep Truth but it looks gorgeous. Warm Chill barely showed up on your skin!!!

    • Thanks, Erin! Deep Truth is similar enough that you could pass on Blue Flame probably!

      I know, Warm Chill just didn’t take to my skintone!

  13. cloudburst

    Climate Blue & Blue Flame look pretty nice!

  14. cloudburst

    Warm Chill reminds me of Brill.

  15. Thanks, Christine. These are neat. What are your impressions?

    • Hey Jen! I’m so-so thus far, but we’ll see, I have an opportunity to use them in a look before I need to make my full review :) I do love the slimshines, though.

  16. lala

    I thought I commented already :(

    Do you think “Warm chill” is a must???…that was one I was thinking about thanks <333

    Was it hard to get Warm Chill to show up?

    • IMO, it took several passes to get it to show up like it did in the swatch for me. I’ve seen it on other people and it looks glorious. I’m hoping when I use it in a look, it will show up better!

  18. viv

    mmm… I’m definitely getting Blue Flame! Gorgeous :)

  19. Blue Flame looks gorgeous!

  20. Vivien

    Is Warm Chill worth the buy? It doesn’t even look like it will show up enough?

    • It hardly shows up on my skin, and I have to pack it on. I am going to do a Cool Heat look tomorrow, and I am hoping the green will work out better with a base!

  21. claudine

    climate blue is mine haha

  22. Connie

    How do you think Climate Blue compares to Electric Eel? It looks a cross between that and Love Bud to me. Is it a must-have?
    In your lip swatches, did you have to layer on High 90′s or was it a pretty smooth and thin layer?

    • Love Bud is really light purple, isn’t it? I never bought it, so I’m going off of a very stale memory, lol. It is so gorgeous, though – it is incredibly pigmented, and I can only think of Jeweltone (LE) as the closest dupe.

      I applied High 90s no more/less than a regular lipstick (which is probably one or two passes).

  23. Blue flame and Varm chilli was awesome!

  24. evangelia

    ooooh, I still want Climate Blue!

  25. Rubi

    I can’t wait to get all 7 of the e/s I am loving the blues.

    Hi Christine!

    I’ve been starting my mac and other brand makeup collection and I’m loving it! But I seem to be running out of room for my eye shadows lol..do you know where I can purchase mac cosmetics palette pan? A few of those will help. Thanks!!

    • Paula

      The MAC pro store and I believe a freestanding store, both sell the 15 pan empty palette.

    • Hey Kayla! You can purchase palettes at freestanding and PRO stores – if you do not have one near you, you can always call and have them ship it to you.

    I was unsure about climate blue but it looks so unique. WHat is the texture like when you apply it?
