    I think I want the nude lip bag… Have to see it in person and swatch it first of course though!

    • Ms Trendy

      Excellent choice… my local BAY store got them in today and the MUA gave me a preview … the nude lip bag is very pretty! he lipglass is very impressive and not like any other l/g i can remember. I ordered my stuff for pick up July 9th. cant wait.

  2. AA

    I want some of those lip bags

  3. Rachel

    LOVE IT!
    so is this ONLY going to be sold at nordstrom? cause i live in canada and we dont have one… :(

  4. Is this going to be available in the UK?

  5. I love the packaging and the nude lip shades – you lucky people on the other side of the Atlantic from a sad English girl :(

  6. so excited for the lip bags, e/s pallets and look boxes!

  7. claudia

    Can’t wait to see your swatches, Christine. I only buy lipsticks after your swatches ;D

  8. JO

    is there a bay in the uk?

  9. Oh man, the cool palette and the Sun Siren look box are totally calling my name. I just got myself a bronzer though lol… Can’t wait for your swatches and reviews.

  10. JO

    i want a lot of this stuff lol

    Karla swatched all of these on her blog.

    I am pretty sure I want both of the eyeshadow palettes, both lip bags, and the Sweet Tease Look-in-a-Box. UGH! So much money! I’ll just hope that when I go to Nordstroms and swatch the colors that I don’t like them so much (like with the Nordstrom specific quad earlier this year).

    I’m definitely looking forward to seeing Christine’s swatches of these too, as the more of the colors I can see, the better! :)

  12. I love this concept – an entire look (and more) packaged in an easy to-go box. I’ll take one of everything!

  13. sprut6

    I thought I was going to get an eye palette but I’m feeling eyeshadow overload lately. I might just get one of the brush sets as I always feel like those are a good deal.

  14. kat

    I want the pink eyeshadow palette for sure… and possibly one of the brush sets or look books pending the canadian price I will have to see how much you save to get them like that :)

    • Ms Trendy

      The eyeshadow palettes are $42 CDN and the look box is 71.50 at the Bay. I put mine on hold today :D I didnt ask about the price of the brush sets. just ask at your local Bay store… some of them received their order already – i got to see most of the collection this evening.

    • Ms Trendy

      the MUA did the math for me… 120-130 if you bought everything individually that comes in the box depending which one you go for since the lip products very in price… plus you get the mini mascara. Also you cant get the 181 on its own. the only LE product is in the lookbox is the one with the beauty powder so thats the one i am getting. as a pro member i can pick up the other stuff at the pro card price later…. i really want the 181!!!

  15. Michele

    I went to my local MAC counter at The Bay today and they had this collection ! I was pretty surprised to see it :]

  16. freewing

    package package and package!!!love the eyeshadow palettes’ package~~!!!

  17. Diamonds

    The woman on the Seductress Box scares me. hahah gotta be honest it’s a little creepy. lol

  18. Fabulous

    Are the 181SE in the Look Boxes made in factories??

    • Ms Trendy

      i dont know if its hand or factory made but the bristles and handle are the same quality as the 182… i saw the testers at the bay today … they arent on the counters but some stores already have their stock in and are showing them to those that ask.

  19. lauren

    Hmmmmm Sun Siren looks like it might be best for tan people……….do you think it would work on someone who is an NC20? heheh

  20. Christy

    I gotta get the 2 eyeshadow palettes and Sweet Tease Look Box. Maybe Sun Siren too, will see how I feel when I see it in store. I hope my MAC counter at The Bay has it! =)

  21. MAC is killing my wallet ): first my sumo family&friends haul, then this, then their fall black collections ! ahh ! i think i want seductress look box. don’t have anything from that one (:
    Christine, do you think you could do swatches on all the things in the look boxes (you probably have them all) haha. If possible please (: Thank you !

  22. This is already out in Singapore, I bought the Fresh Cut palette today, check it out at my blog. :)

  23. Lindsay

    How do you go about ordering this collection? Do I just phone up my MAC counter at the Bay and they will put it on hold for me, or do they need a credit card?

    Thanks, I am really looking forward to this collection!

    • Ms Trendy

      i am not sure if this applies to all Bay counters but the one I went to on Queen St Eaton Centre in Toronto simply takes your name and contact info – they will only hold a certain #of products and you have 3 days (ie July 9-12) to go instore to pick it up and pay any way you like. If you want to prepay to guarantee its yours they are selling HBC gift cards for the total value of your purchase to be cashed in when you pick up your order. I would call your local counter and inquire or stop in to see if they are doing the same. They told me they are very limited quantities because there are so many MAC retail stores opening up in Canada they are getting less quantities at the bay from Head office… and even though this collection isnt available at stores they follow the same quantity methodology – less for counters with stores in their region makes it all the more exclusive i guess. i predict even the MUAs from the stores will also head to the bay to get their hands on the palettes because i heard a few of them at my regular store mentioning it. I am on the hold list for graphic garden and sweet tease… I prefer to do it instore that way i saw him write it in their inventory book with my own eyes! Hope this helps.

    • I think they’ll be selling them at the Bay next week. I’d call up your MAC counter and ask, though!

  24. badfish
