  1. Victoria

    this seems waaaaay to summery for winter!

  2. Stefani

    OH MY GOD! I dont know who this person is but this seems like the coolest collection MAC has done since I have been using them. Everything looks amazing, especially the eyeshadows!!!

    • crazedstargazer

      This truly reminds me of MAC collections of old, where you could clearly see the concept behind the collection and each product within the collection van be threaded together.

  3. It reminds me a bit of the Temptalia for MAC collection! :) I still think they should do that.

  4. Devi

    So many MAC collections this coming season that I cannot pretend to be excited sadly. Or perhaps I’m being too negative. :(

    • Devi

      Gah, seeing more info and images now, I’m actually curious to see how these will perform. >.< Darnit. Those quads. Those eyeshadows. Those nail lacquers. I must see how they perform. -_-

  5. I’m so excited for this collection! Not only does it look to be chock full of brights, but it’s also connected with one of my favorite revolutionary photographers! :)

  6. Elysia

    ooooo hot pink, yes!!

  7. OHMYGOD. I love Cindy Sherman. I haven’t been interested in a MAC collection in…. forever. But this is amazing.

  8. Another electric collect I actually hope the warm pink lipstick is permanent.

    I’m good for bright shades now that I’ve up together a raibow palette from Inglot. *_*

    • Oh! Lanscape is comming back. I like Porcelain Pink but it’s just a pink tint version of By Candlelight.

      Lip Erase … terrible product for longevity. Use a flesh tone pencil on your lips instead.

  9. kira

    this collection looks like a must in my makeup collection since i love bright and bold colors!! it might be my second biggest haul since semi precious!
    by the way Christine, is the glam glass collection going to launch tomorrow?? thanks & sorry if i sound annoying its just that im obsessed.

    CINDY SHERMAN! OMG! I never would’ve expected this. She is this really interesting visual artist–I love her “self portraits” where she does insane things to herself and her image…she has been really influential to me as an artist in thinking about self-representation. This is such an awesome collaboration! (assuming this is *the* Cindy Sherman they’re referring to)

    • Avatar of Saffron Saffron

      haha I am so with you I saw her name and flipped – I can’t wait to see the marketing visuals!

  11. natalia

    So summery and fun!I liked since I’m always on summer when MAC release the fall/winter collection hehe

  12. Sinead

    as long as their pigmented :)

  13. Fiiiinally, a collection I actually like.

  14. Wait, THE Cindy Sherman, photographer and artist? AWESOME.

  15. Agnes

    Lipsticks and that green pigment type of product (green jar) look very promising:)

  16. Stephanie

    wow, in love with all the lipsticks!!

  17. I honestly don’t care for them. I am a neutral kinda gal.

  18. Dada

    lipsticks pretty pretty pretty! :) can i ask you something off-topic do you know dupe for MAC Waternymph eyeshadow , its my favorite and i cant buy it anymore ?

  19. Janet

    I want all four lipsticks!

  20. Love, love, love all thee colours!!!

  21. Ashley

    SO! EXCITED!! Love the ultra bright colors, woohoo!!!!!

  22. I love all the lipsticks!!

  23. Probably going to pass– but the purple and yellow look cool!

  24. Avatar of LH LH

    love the vibrancy

  25. ANNE

    This is truly exciting! Cannot actually wait for these to come out!

    • ANNE

      The lady at the pro store in London told me that Neaon Orange was going to be discontinued – is this how they sell their lines through, or was I told porkies!? It is a little disappointing that there are so many pro products included, but I suppose that is good for the wallet. May still buy Show Orchid and Fusion Pink as they are on my ‘one day’ list and will save a trip to the pro store!

      Mac are killing me with the amount of collections that are coming out!

  26. Avatar of Pamela Pamela

    I can’t wait to see the description of the chartreuse/olive shadow, orange lipstick and the coral pigment. I hope there aren’t any re-promotes.

  27. helen

    I LOVE CINDY SHERMAN!! I teach film and art theory and visual culture and love to discuss her work in depth. I have read many a college paper devoted to her untitled film stills. i love that she’s collaborating with MAC. She also did a print ad with marc jacobs some time ago which I used in my lecture. Can’t wait for this collection!

    • Vanessa

      I agree! She was one of my favorites when I used to do Visual Arts in high school, her work is amazing so I’m really excited for this collection!

  28. Kourtney

    I love crazy bright colours! And these colours are amazing!

  29. Piper

    The green pigment looks pretty.

  30. holy hell, i cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!

  31. Roo

    I’m not interested in any of the products shown but I’m very interested in the visuals for this collection. Cindy Sherman is a very important and influential artist!

  32. leesie

    Mmmm, those shadows!

  33. MORENA

    Whens te release date? plzzzz dont say september

  34. ms_k

    The purple and blue eyeshadows and purple and magenta pigment!!! i wanttt!

  35. Karla

    i like the light blue eyeliner

  36. Lil

    Christine, thanks for the info on this. I haven’t seen you post any reviews in the glam glass collection? Is it still being released tomorrow?

    • I don’t have any product from Glamglass, so I can’t review anything, sorry! I don’t know if it will be – nobody has confirmed it is, but nobody is saying it is officially delayed. I’ve been waiting for confirmation from MAC on the delay and new release date for 2 weeks now. Sorry, I can’t do anything else :(

  37. I love, love, LOVE bright colors! These should pop real nice against my NW43 skin.

  38. Wow, everything looks amazing. I am so excited for this collection! I’m going to have to start saving now to be able to afford everything I want!

  39. Mo

    Heck I say if it’s too vibrant and bright for fall/winter, get it and hold onto it for next spring/summer. Problem solved. LOL!

  40. CMS

    I am so looking forward to this! This will be great during those cold and gloomy months!

  41. Holly

    Will there be any collection for fall that feature special packaging?

  42. Allison

    The coral pigment looks very promising…:) I’d have to experiment with the rest but that’s what I love about make-up in general.

  43. Lina

    Love everything but the pigments…a little too much for me

  44. OMG!!!!!! I want everything!!! The colors are absolutely gorgeous, I’m definitely excited about this collection. I do wish that MAC would slow down on the collections though. I’m having a hard time keeping up, me an my wallet lol

  45. christina

    I heard MAC lightscapade MSF will be re-promoted with this collection OMG I can’t wait! need to start saving!!! MY poor wallet!!

  46. Eeee! I love Cindy Sherman! This is so exciting. I wouldn’t have expected her collaborating with any fashion/beauty brands honestly. She’s a makeup anarchist, haha! I do love the bold colors though.

  47. Lightscapade MSF is supposed to debut in this collection as well as Porcelain Pink MSF. Also Jungle Juice is coming back in this collection. There’s going to be 2 Quads (Parlor Smokey and Angel Flame) and 4 lipglasses and a jumbo penultimate liner.

  48. meme

    WOOOOO! Too bright for me! And there have been times I have had fun with a bright pink eye shadow. But this one just looks garish.

  49. Avatar of Marian Marian

    I’m a HUGE fan of Cindy Sherman!!!! Can’t wait to see more!

  50. Finally! A collection I’m excited about!! COLOUR FTW!!

  51. totally loved! i think spent my all money on those lipstick shades :D

  52. Avatar of Jen Jen

    neeeeed those shadows!!!

  53. Oh wow those are some bright colors, I love them. I cant wait to see the swatches :D

  54. Judy

    What a beautiful collection! I am very excited about this & a bunch of the other collections coming out for the Fall. MAC is back!!!!! I can’t wait to find out the color names. So far, I want all four lipsticks and maybe an eyeliner & lipliner.

  55. Catalina

    OMG! This is the most excited over a MAC collection I have been in a long time! Yay!

  56. Kathy.H

    There is many re-promoted shades in this collection..
    Lipsticks – Fusion Pink, Ruby Woo, Show Orchid, Violetta
    Pigments – Golden Olive, Magenta Madness, Neo-orange, Violet
    Eye shadows – Passionate, Sock-a-holic

    This is from what I’ve been finding around, not sure if there are exact and of course there are many other shades i have not listed
    Hope it helps those who are craving some more info (:

    • Leslie

      Hmmm, I vaguely remember reading this on Specktra. I guess it’s a good thing in that I can spend less money because many of these will be repromotes, but bad in that…hey, no new products (or not many anyway)! In any case, I’ve always wanted Show Orchid and now have my eye on Fusion Pink. This collection should give those of us nowhere near a PRO store access to those colors. So yay on that.

    • Avatar of Mariella Mariella

      Don’t forget Cross-Cultural, Lightscapade and Porcelain Pink MSFs, to say nothing of Feline. Why don’t they just make that permanent, since they repromote it every 5 minutes?

  57. Avatar of April April

    I love it. I do more with my makeup in the Fall/Winter anyways. It’s just too hot and humid where I live to spend a lot of time on my makeup when it’s just going to get all melted off anyway even with primers. But in the winter I love to do more detailed and “full face” makeup.

  58. Melissa

    wow. this is why I love MAC – their collaborations are always the most interesting and refreshing. Cindy Sherman is such a dynamic artist and I’m excited to see what comes out of this!

  59. Kel

    Cindy Sherman!!!!! One of my all time favorite artists and MAC!!

  60. Anna

    The info for this collection is available on Specktra.com already. The release date is in August, before the Posh paradise collection.

    • The information is very, very preliminary – I’m waiting for firmer information. When things are too preliminary, I get flooded with a lot of complaints when things change so the best course of action is to wait :) Thanks!

  61. Avatar of Crissy Crissy

    Amazing! I adore Cindy Sherman, her work is so inspiring!

  62. Avatar of Amy Amy

    Finally something that looks fun from MAC! :D For fall and winter too!! LOVE IT!

  63. Maureen

    Who cares if it’s fall vs. spring? I’d buy that green pressed shadow any day of the year… or the purple… or any of them… The lipstick on the far left looks good, too. :3

  64. Avatar of Janis summerblue

    What really makes no sense to me is that MAC puts out the brights (particularly in lipsticks) in the Fall & puts out dark colors in the spring & summer.

    • Avatar of Pamela Pamela

      I agree. I’m very traditional about cosmetics colors. Wearing a coral lip in the dead of winter makes me depressed so does wearing burgundy lips in the summer.

  65. tootsie

    I have my eyes on all the lipsticks !

  66. Avatar of Jennifer Jennifer

    Wait till you guys see the displayer images!!! *snickers to myself*

  67. Beautifull colors!!!

  68. Tiffany

    I loooove Cindy Sherman! For some reason though, her collaboration with MAC comes as a surprise to me.

  69. Liang

    I’m split on this….may need to see swatches to make final decision.

  70. Erika

    Color is actually on trend for fall; mixing a pop of color with simple outfits is what is being seen on runways everywhere! So to everyone who is saying these colors are too bright or summery check the trends! (or be left behind)

  71. Brilliant Colors ♥

  72. Constanze

    Amazing!!!! ♥

  73. Hend

    love the lipsticks , didn’t everything else !

  74. Avatar of artemis artemis

    wow the third lipstick looks gorgeous <3
    i love hot pink eyeshadow

  75. JessicaM

    Is that Show orchid?

  76. Ashley

    I want all the lipsticks! *swoons*

  77. Kim-Mary

    This collection looks amazing!!! I thought jungle juice lipstick was going to be re-promoted with it? That was what I read in lots of other blogs. I was hoping it would be. Heard great things about it. Also, wasn’t there going to be a bunch of eyeshadow quads and blushes? I’m still excited. MAC is rocking with all these collections. My wallet is crying, but the addict in me is very very happy!!! :-D

  78. Loving those bright lipsticks!

  79. Ooh! Looks exciting. I know I want 2 of the lipglasses (Pink Fade and Orange Tempera are calling me! <3) and Lightscapade MSF (just watch this sell out!) and maybe a lipstick. Alot of the lipsticks seem too bright for my tasting though. And maybe an eyeshadow quad.

  80. Love the products but man those pix are scary -_-

    • BeyondtheBath

      I thought the same thing! Beautiful, vibrant colors, but WTF is up with those pics?!

      • Emma

        You should research the artist before saying such things. And maybe re-evaluate why you’re investing in MAC, if they are promoting such photos. Have you not hear of MAC’s mission statement? All ages, races and genders? Does that not equal acceptance of everyone, whether a “weird” performance artist, a drag queen, a home maker mom etc etc.

        Grow up.

    • Avatar of Gina Gina

      I agree, they’re pretty freaky looking.

      • Avatar of Michele Michele

        I feel the same but I guess it’s art. I can pass on this collection. Good thing too as I have WAY too much makeup from previous collections.

  81. Avatar of Mariella Mariella

    I rather like the 2nd quad and the Porcelain Pink MSF (though I don’t think it’s near as good as Petticoat) but I have to say, the woman in the first photo looks like some of the women my mom used to hang out with in the 50’s, who thought they were “glam” but who really looked like old tarts. Not one of the 3 looks has any validity for me.

  82. The collection just seems to be a lot of repromotes and Pro stuff (apart from the quads and a few other bits), I think I’ll pass. Oh yeah, why do the women in the pictures look a little creepy, maybe it’s just me, I don’t know?!

    • Avatar of artemis artemis

      it’s the same woman

    • Gillian (AKA Munchy)

      She is a famous photographer and artist who is famous for taking on drastically different caricatures in her work.

      • You should check out the documentary that came out about Cindy in 2009 called “Guest of Cindy Sherman”. It’s a lot of fun and you learn a lot about her art!

        • Janine Ogden

          i LOVE that movie. it’s really one of the best movies about an artist and their process. not to mention a very funny story about her nutty boyfriend.

  83. Omg! I want like all of those lipsticks! :P

  84. Sarah S.

    Wow, Angel Flame quad is like the FIRST quad I’ve ever wanted from MAC!

  85. leesie

    Those lipglasses all look right up my alley, and I love the sound of some of those pigments (especially Emerald Dusk). Three Ring Yellow looks so much like the shadow (or was it a pigment?) in the sadly-not-actually-real Temptalia collection. And I want it.

  86. monique r.

    CINDY SHERMAN!!!!!!!!!! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  87. Avatar of Laura Laura

    I’m initially interested in:

    Ash Violet Fluidline
    Plum Bright Lipstick
    Emerald Dusk Pigment
    Starless Night Pigment
    Parlor Smoke Eyeshadow Quad
    Three Ring Yellow Eyeshadow
    Shock-a-holic Eyeshadow
    Royale Eyeshadow
    Good Times Lipglass

    I’ll have to wait for swatches and comparisons before deciding though!

  88. Rachael

    Wow! Its like they’re trying to do the toxic collection from Illamasque, only they failed miserably and came off horrifically creepy. That’s just embarrassing.

    • Stefani

      I disagree. They are interesting and beautiful. Actually I hated the toxic nature photos. They were too literal and it showed the lack of creativity from illimasqua. These photos belong in a art gallary.

    • Shanna

      LOL I agree with this.

  89. Avatar of Christina Kirari

    I love the colors that I’m seeing in this collection. Absolutely love them, especially the lipsticks.

    The promotional images, however, are terrible! They look like they were done by a small child with a very large crayon.

    • Lilinah

      Cindy Sherman is not a model or fashion makeup artist. She’s a performance artist and photographer. That’s her in all three photos as characters she has created. She is an artist who uses makeup to help personify her characters. Look her up on the internet for more info on her – she is *intensely* creative.

  90. Lydis

    WOW. This is the most unappealing makeup ads I’ve seen in a long time. And people are “excited”? Excited for what? It’s a bunch of repromotes and permanents. MAC is getting desperate now; then again they have been for at least two years of coming out with multiple collections a month. How do people still buy this junk? ::confused::

    • Deb

      Not everyone has access to a MAC PRO and while you could argue that you can purchase the products online if that was the case, a lot of people prefer to swatch and test the products out themselves before buying.

  91. Avatar of Noga Noga

    A yellow-green eyeshadow in a Veluxe Pearl finish – those guys at Mac just read my mind :D

  92. Judy

    Plum bright is mine, mine all mine (evil ha ha ha). Just joking. I want both quads, about three or four of the lipsticks and ash violet fluidliner. MAC is really going all out for the Fall/Winter collections. I’m not complaining, but my wallet is.

  93. Kath

    Ughh No…just no…

  94. Yay for Lightscapade!!

  95. Avatar of Pamela Pamela

    I hope that I hate Angel Flame because I’d hate to buy the quad just for that one color.

  96. LOLLIPOP

    honestly. those ads are terrifying and wake up a sleeping fear of clowns and dolls. The make up looks cool, but seriously, …terrifying.

  97. Feline Kohl Power! :DDDD

  98. Cherokee

    I am not going to get excited until I see Christine’s review and swatches. All of the products look dupeable so I will wait. On the fence with this collection.
