    whoaaa thanks so much for this!
    do you think that Of summer e/s look like stila kitten e/s? thats the first thing that came to my mind when i saw that!

  2. kae

    wow.. i want the beauty powders but i dont want the rose design to go away! haha

  3. Annika

    Shouldn’t Blush of youth and Summer Rose be the other way around? 😉

  4. OMG THIS LINE IS BEAUTIFUL! I’m definitely gonna try to get at least something thank you!

  5. charlieee

    Thanks for the pictures, Christine! i’m actually excited about this collection…really liking the lip colours. and the rose imprint on the blush is nice :)

  6. I want pretty much allll of the lip stuff. And maybe Mutiny, since I didn’t have the money when it came out with Naughty Nauticals.

  7. I wanttttttt the blush! It’s so pretty!

  8. Fie

    I want the blushes…and keep staring at them. I’ll be very reluctant to use it though! I might get all the lip products…because the colours are so gorgeous!

  9. PAOLA

    i’m so getting the quad! thanks!!

  10. i am afraid of how much of this I will be buying.

  11. Gail

    Thanks so much for the pictures Christine! Any idea on the shade names or descriptions/finishes for the shadows in the quad?

  12. Jenn

    yay thanks so much for posting these!! I know I want some lippies and Just a pinch at the very least.

  13. carriespooner

    Virgin kiss.. nice!

  14. Everything is SO pretty! Can’t wait!

  15. Carla

    Finally – a collection where I lurve them all! Oh dear this is going to be painful for my pocket. HK was not my thing at all…way too tacky (please dont’ shoot me lol) but these creamy delights are making me salivate…..

  16. sprut

    I hope you do swatches of some of these if you get them. I’m definitely buying a blush and probably some eye shadows as well.

  17. Faiza

    Everything is SOO gorgeous! Mutiny pigment is back, and ALL of the lipglasses/lipsticks are looking cute.

  18. Jackie

    I’d love to know the shadows in the quad also!

  19. Mutiny is the only thing I’m really interested in. I’ve been dying for it for so long and it’s unfair that counters only carry pigments with certain lines, they should carry them all the time.

  20. Jannete

    Is Creme de Violet eyeshadow a permanent color?

  21. Ariana

    Oooo the Nordstrom quad looks tempting. I really like Creme de Violet and Of Summer. Purty!

  22. Jessica

    Is this being released in the UK?

  23. kristie

    uh oh my wallet is scream in pain.

  24. kristie

  28. Macaddict

    Glad for myself that so many are repromotes! I already have both Mutiny and Circa Plum pigments, Just a pinch tendertone, as well as Shadowy Lady and Creme de Violet e/s! Now, all I need is both blushes, all 3 lip stains, Et Tu Bouquet and Silverthorn e/s, the Fix+ with rose water…Yay for me! It’s still a pretty big list! LOL

  29. MACmademoiselle

    Uhhhh! That was my wallet groaning!

  30. Rachael

    Oh man Et Tu, Bouquet? and Of Summer look stunning as well as Circa Plum pigment. A Rose Romance, Way To Love, Magnetique and Virgin Kiss look lovely too!

  31. amanda

    This is not going to be good for my bank account. Hopefully I can justify it because it’s going to launch on my birthday?

  32. The pics are amazing! I’m after Mutiny, Circa Plum, Fix+ Rose, Of Summer, A Rose Romance and Virgin Kiss. I have Shadowy Lady and it’s a must of anyone doesn’t have it.

  33. Brenda

    Someone please tell me that the quad will be available at The Bay….

  34. Oh my goodness;what pretty colors! Just when I thought MAC could never out do the Barbie collection, they introduce this one, I am glad I was wrong! Love, love, love these shades-especially the lip colors! I started saving; want to make sure I am able to get a lipglass,lipstick, blush, oh my! The new Viva Glams look nice to!

  35. Jenny

    I must get the Nordstrom quad and Way To Love.

  36. the blush is soooooooooo cute like wow

  37. Leila

    Will the quad be at the bay? If it’s not I’ll be really sad.

    My wish list is: 2 Lipstick Way To Love and A Rose Romance. 3 Eye Shadows Et Tu, Bouquet?, Creme de Violet and Silverthorn. The nail polish, the Fix+ Rose and both blushes. There is 100+ in here, so i will probably have to narrow down the list :) But this is just my wish list :)

  54. Laura

  55. mac addict

  64. Julia C

    i can’t wait for this to come out!

  65. Breanna

    does anyone know what just a pinch is?
    is it a tendertone or a paint pot?

    also, is there any dupes in the perminant collection for the 2 pigments, or any pigments that are close to those colours?

    are there any dupes in the perminant collection for Magnetique, Virgin Kiss (lipglasses)
    and are there any dupes in the perminant collection for Way To Love (lipstick)

    this collection looks really nice, but i spent all of my money on sugarsweet, so i need to save my money for this collection..and i wont get all of the money by when the collection comes need dupes 😛

    thanks for the help :)

      Just A Pinch is a Gel Blush

      “Sheer gel cheek blush in a pot delivers a rosy glow of coverage for a healthy complexion. Dewy texture blends into a thin film on skin, giving low to medium transparent coverage.”

  66. Stefani


    want allllll!!

  67. Mikki

    I’m sooooo picking up that blush!

  68. Ioanna-Ameerah

    Circa Plum, probably is identical with Beanie Nyx Chrome pigment.. Do you agree??
