      Finally Stereo Rose WILL be re-released in July as part of the “In the Groove” collection. I just read it on specktra and don´t hope it´s an April´s Fool again. I missed it years ago and am lemming for it ever since, but I wasn´t willing to pay 250$ on ebay for a possible fake. I am SOOOO happy I will get my hands on it…WOHOO!!!

  92. Sherry

    I fell for it as well. The colors are GORJUS! If only it was for real!

  93. Sloane

    I was actually excited about these and was thinking this was going to be one of the MAC collections I would have jumped on! Too bad ahah. Good one though, you got me!

  94. Jasmine

    Hahaha you totally got me! I was so happy for you!

  95. Teeeheee I forgot about april fools day! Thats hysterical!(the products DO sound awesome though-how much time did you put into making them up?) Now I have to think of something to do to punk the boyfriend.

    • I wrote up about half of the color story back in 2007, actually! It’s posted here on Temptalia –

      Oddly enough, when I went to Photoshop the images (I actually do the images first, LOL, then I write up names/descriptions)… so many were repeats, guess what I want hasn’t changed much! So since a lot of it was similar, I ended re-using a lot of the names and descriptions from the original one!

  96. Mariana

    Dang! The colors looked spectacular! I would seriously buy this entire hypothetical collection.

  97. Ann

    When I first saw this I was EXTREMELY excited! But then I realized you didn’t note whether a color or shade was Permanent or Limited Edition like you always do. And, I think I remember reading one time that if you ever did collaborate with MAC, you’d want white packaging? So it seemed a little off to me as I was reading through. On top of the fact that if something that exciting was happening, I don’t know if you COULD actually keep it a secret! I’d feel like you’d tell us all right away and probably have polls & surverys on finishes & colors or re-promotes that we’d like to see haha. Maybe not but either way, you did have me fooled. Those blushes looked ENTICING. I can’t wait for your *actual* collection to come out Christine! It would be a fantastic accomplishment indeed :-)

    • I waffle between wanting something like pewter or gunmetal packaging or going with the pearly white (like Moonbathe). But you know, if MAC wanted to collaborate with Temptalia for real, I don’t know if I’d let packaging kill the deal, LOL! I’d do it in black!

      With the names/theme in the story, the darker packaging seems more fitting than pearly white, though…

      • Ann

        Omg if you ever came out with pewter or gunmetal packaging, I’d buy EVERYTHING! That would be amazing! Although I am definitely in the camp that if MAC ever wanted to do any kind of collaboration, I wouldn’t argue about the packaging either haha. And you’re right, with the theme of this collection, darker packaging would be the way to go. It would also be so awesome to see how they could incorporate the word “Temptalia.” That would be so cool! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you!

  98. Kathy

    My wallet thanks you for the joke! Haha.

    • haha mine too! if that was a real collection i’d sell my granny for it!

      • Bunny

        I even started to make a mental list of all the items I wanted, and freaking out of how much much all that would cost… Although I’m sad I won’t have all these pretty thing I’m relieved I’m not going bankrupt. This was such a great prank!!!

  99. Evelyn

    you totally got me! I would so buy this whole collection if it were real. :)

  100. Tekoa

    ……..*laughs* Awww. You got me.
