    does MAC really have to do this to me right after HELLO KITTY? this year is brutal on my wallet haha the shadows and shade sticks sound amazing!

  2. Marianne

    seems,like MAC has it’s own answer to economical crysis ))
    and this answer is very..very temptatious. & tasty.

  3. I’m kind of excited about shade sticks…some of the shadows..MSF.

  4. my dear….u will kill me wth ur sweetness….!!! thank god only one e/s to look for…MSFs…yeah!!!

  5. Crystal

    So awesome! I hope it doesnt disapoint!

  6. i cannot WAIT for this collection — finally, something a little different!

  7. HoneyBrown1976

    Seriously, how many collections are they putting out?

  8. viv

    this looks interesting!! :)

  9. Lia

    Perfect Toping MSF sounds super nice and would be good on pale skin. Can’t wait!

  10. styrch

    Do they intend those lipglass sections to be accessed individually? I don’t see how that’s possible.

    • I actually don’t know. They’re not *supposed* to mix because of densities (think oil and water and how they settle on each other), but I don’t know if that means you can get one without the other.

      • From what I saw on the internet, someone wearing a tri colored ligloss from that collection, its all mixed together on the wand, when you put them on. Plus, the packaging is square, not round, from what I saw :'[

  11. Shayla

    I like new collections since I *seem* to have most of what I want from the permanent line. It’s what makes MAC exciting for me!

    I’m definitely looking forward to the Shadesticks (why’d the get rid of/cut those back anyways?), check out the non-permanent shadows, and maybe some of the lipsticks. Could be an interesting collection!

  12. gin

    does anyone know if the procard discount will work for this collection?

    • Manda

      my guess would be yes since it doesn’t seem to have special packaging. i have a pro card too and am praying it doesn’t have special packaging. haven’t been able to use it lately with edna, hello kitty, etc.. lets hope :) tho i guess that also gives me more incentive to buy which i def dont need!

    • From what I’ve been told by MAs when I’ve inquired for readers is that your PRO discount will not qualify on “special packaging.” I have no idea if this means special as in only if it’s above and beyond with special printing on packaging, odd packaging shapes, etc. or if it will apply to packaging that’s just another color (think Neo Sci Fi). It would seem that they’re tightening their policies, though.

  13. Macaddict

    I have to admit that it looks to me that MAC has been trading off quantity (hence, the enourmous amount of LE collections)at the expense of quality (many e/s, l/g and l/s are barely pigmented &/or chalky, or there are too many products of similar shades). I, for one, already have so many MAC products that I probably could open my own store… LOL I feel that I can skip most of the stuff of the LE collections nowadays. What I have found myself a lot more interested into lately (lust6ing after)is MACPRO stuff! I have a huge list of what I want! It seems to me that many of them are more pigmented bcz they are used by pros for photo shoots, etc. I really think that I would not be disappointed in the MacPro products.

  14. Shanel

    oooh wheee! Im totally lovin’ this collection, but right after HELLO KITTY? mac is fo’sure eating my money away!
    I can’t wait to see some pics of this collection. the tri’color lipglass, MSF & shadesticks sound great! & the promo pic for this collection is beautiful, full of color & very yummy! saw it yesterday in the spring launches book at my local mac counter.

    lash 34, is that new? cause im not sure if it is or not.

  15. The whole premise of this collection has me ridiculously excited :) I want my face to look like a frosted cupcake!

  16. Jessie

    Is Seasonal Peach a repromote?

    I’m kinda excited for this collection. It seems like it’s going to be a completely from anythign MAC has ever released with the new glosses and stuff

  17. Rachel

    I can’t wait for the shadesticks ..the new packaging looks really cute and elegant!

  18. kat

    Seems like a lot of repromotes! Which is sort of good cause I’m pretty broke haha! I was just thinking I’m wondering when they will repromote lollipop lovin because I ADORE that lipstick… I don’t think I’ll have run out of it by then but it’s still good to know I could get a backup!!

  19. Anitacska

    I’m definitely getting at least one of the MSFs, but probably nothing else.

  20. Liz V.

    Wow this makes me want everything! Sounds so tasty :) I think seasonal peach was from the first cremesheen collection? Wasn’t it?

  21. Sara

    um… my list is already made for this. i want: saint germain, consume me, and perfect topping.


  22. DevilishDoll

    I want Dear Cupcake and Aquavert eyeshadows and I want Red Velvet Shadestick. A pink Shadestick…*drool*

  23. That sounds awesome! I’m going to go broke. First Hello Kitty, and now this!! 😉

  24. teagan

    no way… LOLIPOP LOVING LIPSTICK? repromote from Heatherette… YES! The MAC gods answered my prayers!

  25. OMG this sounds amazing. I love any beauty product that looks like, is named after, or is influenced by delicious desserts. I can’t wait. I’m especially looking forward to the polish.

  26. Leah

    I’m really looking forward to this collection. I just recently gotten addicted to MAC and I though Hello Kitty would be my first “special” collection, but (don’t hurt me!!) I don’t care for the packaging that much! It doesn’t give a classic HK feel to me… It seems more “60s-mod-HK”. Anyway, after missing out on Barbie, Fafi, Heatherette, Manish, and sort of HK, I’m getting excited for this! Too bad they’re not going to have crazy packaging.

  27. AbbyL

    I am so excited about this collection! I LOVE pastels/sugar/cupcakes/candy. I think I’m gonna have to get it all, but i’ll be sooo broke…

    Question: do any of ya’ll know if the shadesticks are similar in texture to paint pots? Is it possible to use a brush (like 242 maybe) to apply the shadestick?

  28. Joi

    It’s safe to say I’m more excited about this collection than Hello kitty!

  29. oh,i want Lollipop loving,one of the tri-color lipgloss, and maybe the Refined MSF. thank god it comes out in Asia in April,so i got time to save my money!

    btw, is this collec. gonna have LE packaging? i hope it does!

  30. Mackenzie

    OMG i alsomst died when i found out lollypop lovin was coming out in this collection im so excited !!!!!

  31. Bona

    omg mac why don’t you just give my wallet a break!

  32. Ashlee

    Woo! I so need more Aquavert!

  33. Leila

    since hello kitty is gonna kill my wallet
    im thinking of just getting
    -Perfect topping MSP
    -Lollipop loving lipstick
    -Aquavert E/S
    -Dear Cupcake E/S

    and save the rest of that money for grand duos.. mac is seriously killing me this year.. =S

  34. Karla

    Of course this has to come out right before my trip to chicago. Darn it. I’ve never used a shadestick because I got really into MAC later and they only had nuetrals to choose from.. I’m not a neutral girl. I’m excited about this one, almost as much as HK. Darn it…

  35. Carrie

    I’m thinking…
    Dear Cupcake E/S
    Lollipop Loving l/s
    Red velvet s/s
    Penny s/s

    I am in love with lipglasses, but I don’t know…I’ve seen swatches of the tricolours and they look odd to say the least

  36. finally a collection that seems promising! the last 5 or so collections that theyve put out just didnt do it for me… even hello kitty seemed like a bust!

    the msf’s sound great & the promo pics on specktra make me swoon. right now i pretty much want it all! haha

  37. Annika

    Thankfully I only ever want/get one or two things from any collection – could be Cakeshop Shadestick from this one :)

  38. [email protected]

    I am getting every shadestick!

  39. nikki

  40. emily

    i picture it white with cute pink cupcakes or something!
    how sweet would that be?

  41. Kayc

    This collection sounds much better than Hello Kitty! I’m actually pretty excited about this collection. I can’t wait lol. Good thing I’m not planning to buy much from HK :)

  42. silvia

    damn i havent seen bubbles lipstick in so long.glad its gonna be back.oh and lollipop loving.

  43. Mary

    Just tried to buy some of the new hello kitty products and they were all released today. Some places were already sold out in Tampa, Florda. A Dillards store in Columbus, Georgia sold out of a lot of things and they started today at 12 noon and by 7:00 pm. half of the products. Also some of the accessories online are already sold out. Now how do we get them if they sold out before they were ever on sale.

  44. Leah

    I know this collection won’t have it, but can you B2M LE packaging?

  45. Omgsh I really want the Mineralize Skinfinish Perfect Topping. SOunds like its going to be really shimmery :) cant wait to see the Lavender it in!! yay!

  46. rubyg1986

    it sounds super exciting!! i want that touch lipstick!

  47. Desi

    Oh, man….why why why why?!?! Right after Hello Kitty…MAC’s got me breakin’ the bank : /
    I need me a pro card!

  48. Jody

    I just want to say that what you do Christine is amazing! Unfortuantely, I discovered Temptalia about 2 weeks ago, I say unfortunately because I cant pull myself away from it, your site is truly a Godsend!! I have to buy all of my Mac cosmetics online, therefore I never get to see them first so I am constantly guessing and returning. Since I found your site I have spent almost 300 dollars on Mac LE lipsticks and lipgloss on ebay. I love pinkish and nude lipsticks, the more shimmer the better. I think I love the same color family as you do. I also wanted to mention that your doggie is adorable!! I have 4 Beagles myself. I was hoping you could answer a few questions for me…

    Does your favorite lipgloss Cle de Peau Lip Gloss #2 have any brownish tint to it at all. I really want to try it but the smallest hint of brown does not work for me.

    What is your favorite nude lipstick? I am really loving fleshpot, I do have to work with it a bit. I was excited to try High tea but it shows up a bit brown on me.

    What camera did you use for your beautiful doggie pictures? They are so clear and vibrant. I use a fuji 900 but yours is fabulous!

    I know I’ve gone too far now so I will stop writing and get back to some more Mac reviews!

  49. erica

    those tricolor glosses look so fun! I will definitely be checking out this collection! i can’t wait!

  50. cmferrets

    oh my god , another collection, geez mac’s hello kitty pretty much destoyed my wallet or shall we say cc. im excited though as always. not too sure about the tricolored lipglasses, the pictures looks a bit odd, almost like they went bad. but i want to get the e/s Sugarshot , Dear Cupcake, Aquavert, and Stars n Rockets. The lippies, exspecially lollypop loving , since i heard thats a popular lipstick, the msf and maybe the nailpolish.

  51. Ok I thought I only wanted one thing from there I bumped it up to 3
    Perfect topping MSf It had LAVENDER IN IN?!??? Lollipop loving and Saint Germain CAN’T WAIT!!

  52. Kathy
