  1. Happy to see Ever Hip will be repromoted! & I’m quite intrigued by Summer Shower & Budding Beauty Lip Gelee.

    I wonder what the packaging will be like.

  2. I’m so excited for this particular collection. Quite Cute didn’t quite cut it for me. MAC’s summer collections are always my favorite.

  3. Emily

    Yay info :-)
    Hey Christine it seems as if the last few months info on upcoming Mac collections has been really hard to come by… What exactly happened???

  4. I can’t wait to see the swatches and promo pictures!

  5. Rose

    Omg, Ever Hip is back!

  6. Nav -

    I can’t keep up Mac!!! I can’t keep up! Lol

  7. montrese

    I’m excited to see the lipsticks!!

  8. ALPHA GIRL! I loved it so much in the Heatherette collection, I bought two. Thank goodness it’s coming back, I need another!

    This sounds like a cute collection. Can’t wait for your pix and swatches, Christine. πŸ˜€

  9. I’m waiting for your review!!!!! I hope it will come soon

  10. Sam

    I dunno but I really wanna get ground cover.

  11. VeroJo

    WOW! Can’t wait to see the pics.

  12. Vvn

    :O Everhip NEED this time round!!

    Why do MAC keep trying to promote Penultimate liner.. it’s an OK liner but it’s so pricey for what it is…

  13. Christine

    where did this come from? I am feeling a bit of collection overkill….

  14. Violet

    Groundcover and Summer Shower are calling out to me!

  15. Ani_BEE

    Christen are you going to do swatches of the new Alpha Girl? The old one looked fairly gritty in swatches.

  16. Lindz

    I need Mlle lipstick (because it’s all the rage and beautiful), all the lip gelees, and both beauty powders. Oh my aching wallet :(

  17. Aleksandra

    Mlle sounds like a cool color and those beauty powders sound amazing!

  18. lauraaaa

    OMFG I WANT IT AL. cant wait ti see pics

  19. Jen

    I’m so excited to see the photos! Looks like a fun collection. (Bit surprised to see another blue lipstick, though.)

  20. Aaaah! Beauty powders!

  21. Muneerah

    Really hope this collection has fun packaging, am I the only one who thinks MAC has been lacking on they’re packaging for their collections?

  22. Kim-Mary

    I’m mostly interested in the lipsticks w/this collection. Summer Shower, Mille & GrowingTend are calling my name.
    I’m impatiently waiting for photos & more information on the upcoming collections for late Summer early Fall.

  23. virginiaisforluvrs

    OMG! Ever Hip is back πŸ˜€

  24. Anastasia

    I’m excited to see Ever Hip repromoted! I will definitely pick it up this time around :)

  25. vikaki

    aaaaaaahhh i was hoping to see a repromote of ever hip!!!i will definitely get it!!!
    i was also hoping for jazzed…but they look similar!!!

  26. Kathryn

    I am definately going to pick up three tubes of ever hip! I loved it so much last spring and I have been afraid to use it often for fear of running out.

  27. Lucie

    Cool! Can’t wait for the aqua lipstick! A glaze-finish wash of aqua could be quite pretty and wearable on the lips.

  28. Katie Coleman

    Uhhh… go figure Alpha Girl is being repromoted after I swapped a bajillion things for it on MUA *kicks self in arse*

  29. Katie Coleman

    So does this mean that Big Bounce, Fashion Flower and Surf Baby will all be released in the same month? Oye!

    Dear wallet: I am so sorry.

  30. RosaVee

    MLLE AND EVERHIP!!!!!!!!!

  31. Courtney

    Aqua lipstick? I’ll have to at least look. But it’s the beauty powders that catch my eye. Otherwise, this one’s a pass.

  32. Wendy

    My beloved ever hip is being repromoted! I’m so excited for that. The beauty powders sound promising also!

  33. this sounds really cute–can’t wait to see it!

  34. Alpha Girl sounds like an item from the Heatherette collection :) Excited about Ever Hip!! Hope it works for cool tones.

  35. Need to get a back up of everhip…. favorite summer/spring lipstick… i am almost to the end on it from last summer :)

  36. I may have to pick up Alpha Girl for the name alone. πŸ˜€ Glad to see this collection has quite a few LE products in it too.

  37. Edelmc

    Nothing is jumping out at me with this collection which is a relief cause I will be saving my money for big bounce shadows and surf baby crush metal pigments. I wish they would release some lip legelees

  38. Edelmc

    That last comment should of read ” I wish they would release some lip gelles

  39. Edelmc

    I wish they would release some lipgelees with sparkles or glitters like the old lipgelees

  40. VERY excited about Ever Hip! I missed the boat last time. I’m thinking I’ll get Alpha Girl depending on the packaging. I hated Quite Cute so maybe this will redeem MAC Spring/Summer for me.

  41. Ashley

    ANOTHER COLLECTION? holy molly! I’m glad I didn’t buy anything from Quite Cute.
    I like the sounds of Ever Hip, and it sounds like I might have to get up early and snag it because it sounds popular.

    Other than that,I’m not going to get my hopes up. The last collection was very disappointing…

  42. I’m gonna pass on everything except Fresh Daisy and maybe a beauty powder just because I love those. (:

  43. SHERRY

    Wow- the summer shower lippie, bows and curtseys shadow and one of the beauty powders are must haves for me.

  44. Mariella

    I’m eager at least to see Groundcover. Mac needs a good matte grey and I want to see if this one is it. A few of the other items sound interesting but probably not things I will rush out to buy!

  45. Nadia

    Pass on everything!! I bought two of Ever Hip (love it so much) when it was released originally and I still have half of the first one left and the second remains unused. I don’t think I need a third lol. I’m really trying to not get sucked into buying more makeup and using what I have!!

  46. Katt


  47. Megan

    This collection seems like it’s right up my alley! :)

  48. Jazz

    I want to see pics, but I know I will be passing on most of this collection. I want budding beauty lip gelee and free to be eyeshadow – which I can get at any time. Im waiting on the collection thats coming out in July -the Mineralized collection

  49. Carrie Ann

    Wow, more Lipgelees. The Beauty Powders are $25?? Weren’t they just $22 in the Stylishly Yours collection?

  50. Laura

    I have Ever Hip and don’t really get the hype… It’s ok I suppose but I find I’m always layering it with different liners and glosses to try to get it to look how I’d like, and it never quite works. I’ve seen it look great on some people though so maybe it’s my colouring.

    I might get Summer Shower because I always do that with silly colours, even though I never use them! Apart from that, Alpha Girl sounds very nice, and maybe Bows & Curtseys and Groundcover. I wish they’d stop putting Penultimate in every collection – it’s not even a very good product!

    Oh, and Lucky Green should be a must-buy for anyone who doesn’t already have it!

    • Katie Coleman

      Totally agree with you. I have Ever Hip and rarely reach for it. I think I have the same problem with not being able to coordinate it with anything.

  51. Lori

    I can’t wait for this to come out. The quite cute collection was too pastel for me.

  52. Elizabeth

    “Bows & Curtseys” and “Fresh Daisy” WILL be mine! <3

  53. eva

    omg mlle (madamoiselle) was my second ever mac lipstick eight years ago,i didnt understand about limited collections then so never thought about getting a back up,its such an amazing colour. im so happy.

  54. Christian

    Ahh SO EXCITED for new Lip Gelees! I’ve been waiting for them to come out in a collection but have been disappointed that the past few ones have been sheer sparkly stuff. :( I’m hoping these Lip Gelee’s are as pigmented as my old HG lip gelee (which I have long forgotten what the name is). Can’t wait to see the promo pictures!

  55. Kimmie

    Is Aqua permanent at Pro or freestanding stores as well?

  56. antonia

    ….an aqua lipstick?

    • Catherine

      Yeah…it’s really super sheer and sparkly and can be worn over or under any other lip product to create a nice teal shimmer effect. Definitely not like Peacocky, this one will actually be really wearable.

  57. Kat

    I’m a little tempted by a couple of the eyeshadows. I might pick ’em up if my Project Pan is done by then.

    • Amber

      I’ll most likely only be getting Fresh Daisy. However, if Bows and Curtseys is more pigmented/better formula than in the Tartan Tale palette I’ll be picking it up as well since in the pan it was beautiful.

  58. Hillary

    Definitely going to look into/get Budding Beauty Lipgelee and Alpha Girl Beauty Powder.

  59. Jennifer

    What’s with the massive grammar/spelling failures in the description? Booo! It makes MAC look unprofessional.

  60. Maria

    I think I need to see this collection in person before I decide if I need anything, but I do know I’ll be buying a backup of Ever Hip I hardly use the one I have because I don’t want to run out of it.

  61. Becca

    I’m problably going to get Ever Hip, fresh daisy and/or groundcover eyeshadow and one of the beauty powders.

  62. cait

    Missed out on Ever-hip last time around :c But am totally excited they are re-promoting! Totally getting it <3

  63. Cassandra

    AHH! I’m so happy! I missed out on Ever Hip last year and now this time I’ll be getting it for sure! I might get Mlle as well. I’ve only seen one picture of it and it looks nice! I’m actually excited about the collections you’ve posted about after the Surf Baby collection! I’m really excited!!

  64. Oooooooh I want the lip gelees and that metallic green eyeshadow

  65. Anna

    Hi Christine, is Mlle lipstick short for Mademoiselle lipstick? Since it’s a repromote, I’ve been looking for this color all over the internet but I can’t find it. Which MAC Collection did it come in last time, and in which year also? Thanks!

  66. I will have to keep my eye out for this, despite my hatred of florals. Love that MAC is continuing their personal blue-lip trend, but disappointed to see it sheer again. Also, does anyone else feel like To the Beach JUST happened? Ha ha.

  67. natalie

    omg, this collection is so much closer to coming out than surf baby but we already know what surf baby will look like :(
    do you know when you might find out more about fashion flower?
    i know for sure i’m getting the 2 beauty powders and ever hip :)

  68. hisa

    I’d been wanting to get Alpha Girl, but didn’t get one when it first came out. Is there anything similar to it?

  69. nmarie

    my poor wallet:/ i really want a bueaty powder blush cause i don’t have one
    i really want an eyeshadow too
    but i also want a lot from the surf baby collection
    like the blush, eyeshadows and blue eyeliner
    …oy its too pricy its like 100$ right there…i only have 30 to spend lol well i guess i have to break open my piggybank too …..

  70. Nubia136

    A MAC artists told me today that this collection is going to be released on 4/28 instead of 5/5. This is because Cute Collection sold out so fast.

  71. emily

    hey christine will you be reviewing the packed to go kits that just went up on the mac website? thanks

  72. chris

    I just spoke to a local rep at a MAC store location. The collection will launch April 28th.

  73. Nubia136

    I placed my order for Fashion Flower. I am getting most of the lip products!!!

  74. Love love love the imprinted flower design, so adorable! This whole collection looks really cute. Looking forward to the swatches :)

  75. De

    I am really interested in the beauty powders and maybe the lipstick Mlle. Ever Hip is already mine and I love it! The other two colours are not my colors I think :).

  76. Jen

    We should all go on a MAC strike…or at least I will!! Ever Hip, Alpha girl, Free to Be…do they all sound familiar? C’mon MAC! I despise re-promotes except Feline eye kohl. Putting an imprinted flower on top doesn’t make it any different.

  77. Shasa

    i am so excited for this collection, sadly i don’t get my allowance till may 15th, so i’m just praying to god this won’t be as popular and i can get my hands on groundcover e/s, & budding beauty lip gelee!! hopefully i will get lucky and there will still be in stock on the website or in store!

  78. Amanda Dubs

    The model promo pic reminds me of Priscilla queen of the desert πŸ˜€

  79. Neha

    Wow! The photo shoot looks so classy and vintage..Cant say anything right now abt the collection as it appears be for cooler skin tones which I am not. But overall loving the whole presentation very much!

  80. Pame

    the green lipstick thats so 90′ lol it reminds me of my school days
    i want the lipgelees

  81. ana

    Oh my god I cannot wait to see this collection

  82. blue lipstick! very Ke$ha

  83. Melody

    Some sources say it launches on May 5th but here it says April 28th…so confused…which one is it? =S

  84. OMG July 11 for Europe!! O.o awee…well, at least I will be able to save up a bit)))))

  85. I like collections like this one. The original packaging with new colors. I don’t need LE packaging when no one but me sees it anyway… and the prices go up.

  86. Marley


  87. Stephanie

    What’s with the horrible grammar in the collection description?? Is MAC in such a hurry to release this stuff and they forget to proof-read?

  88. kiran

    I love everything except for the greenish lipstick. Who wears such colors except for high fashion models on ramps?

  89. So bad that I am not in US!!!
    But I must try it as soon as it’s available here :)

  90. Kim

    Just placed my order. Its on the site!

  91. Sadie Louise

    Does anyone know what the actual release dates are for the UK ?? :)

  92. Katrina

    Hi girls,
    the collection is up and available for purchase! :)

  93. Steph2

    This collection is for sale on the Nordstrom website too! I’m skipping this one to save for the upcoming collections.

  94. Vi

    This collection is now up on!! Everything but the lipsticks seem to be available.

  95. Jackie

    The collection is already on their website . I ordered mine last night!

  96. KC

    MAC this is so not fair! How can you launch a collection 3 months ahead of the international launch date? By the time they get to us, it will be old news, and I’m so not paying for shipping.

  97. Leslie

    Unfreakingbelievable. I’ve gone by the date listed on here (April 28) as the official launch date for this. I literally just got an email promoting the collection an hour ago, logged onto the website, and Ever Hip (the only thing I wanted) is already gone! I mean, what’s the point if things are going to disappear that quickly? It’s as if their biggest goal is to get their dedicated customers to go on a big rat race just to get the things they want. I’m so turned off by this. It’s ridiculous.

    • April 28th is in-store launch date, and online typically launches 1-3 days prior but they don’t give out an exact time/date for that!

      • Leslie

        Yeaaah, I think that’s what got me so heated. They never give an exact time for online launches so those of us who are sleeping or at work miss out. I called my local Macy’s counter and was told they were only given 5 Ever Hip lipsticks! Craziness! The manager was nice enough to tell me to call back tomorrow morning and have them hold on to one for me until I can get there after work. The things we go through in the name of makeup. Eeesh!

  98. Laia

    Alpha Girl and Ever Hip for me, please!!!
