  1. you’re mean! *LOL*
    i would be happy if you had the chance to make a collection with mac. i’m sure you would choos very nice and lovely colours!

    so, can you hear me, MAC?

  2. HebrideanSprite

    You totally got me and I was all excited for you! And there were so many things I wanted! (did you make the pictures yourself, or are they pre-existing products? Because I totally want some of them!)

  3. You got me! Good one, Christine!

  4. Crissy

    …i fell for it too…
    it would be so awesome if it happened though!

  5. Ellectronica

    Wow you got me good! I was just about to start a list!!!!!

  6. Angel

    Totally fell for it! I was getting excited about that green lipglass!

  7. lulee

    hahaha i knew this was an april fools joke! except you really did put a lot of work into the shades and pictures. if mac knows what is good for them, they will do a collection with you!

  8. Arielle

    Wow…i’m soooo gullable!!!! That was a GUUD one!!

  9. marielouise

    Oh my GOD! I actually believed this was happening! Good one, Christine!
    And the colours are fab!!! Make this happen :-)

  10. Kate

    Boy, am I gullible. And the colors were so gorgeous(sigh). Good one, Christine!

  11. lameka

    I was squealing with delight until i read it was a joke good one but these colors have me lusting now thax

  12. Great April’s fool. I still enjoy reading you after 2 years around. It’s saying a lot for someone who get tired of things easily. 😉

    Also, actually I’d be happy for you if that was happening! Maybe someday? Why wouldn’t it be possible? 😉

    • Everything is possible, but when you look at a brand that has collaborated with such HUGE, HUGE iconic brands/images like Barbie, Hello Kitty, Lady Gaga, etc…. it seems just about impossible 😛

  13. OMG i was about to DIE! that is a hilarious april fools joke. although, that collection would be HOT!

    you totes got me!!!

  14. Z

    You know, this would be a really great idea. A MAC collection where all the big bloggers and youtubers contribute a product or two. That basically covers their entire fan base anyway, lol.

  15. HC

    OMFG I was actually SUPER STOKED. LOL UGH! You got me gooooood

  16. mango

    OMG NOT FUNNY!!!! LOL i was soooo SOOOOOO excited for a moment till i scrolled down to the bottom. one day, chrisitne, one day – i bet this will really happen one day!

  17. They should totally let you collaborate since you’re so creative. I’d buy your collection!

  18. Ellie

    That’s so funny!!! Haha. Good one, Christine. I wish it were real.

  19. Kaylynre

    Okay, so I am fairly new to your blog and yesterday I was thinking that I never really introduced myself. So I wanted to take this moment to say hello, LOVE your blog and you tweets, and… you’re such a MEANIE!! Lol! Girl I was EXCITED! Like, heart palpitations-excited! Shoot!! I kept scanning and scrolling dying to know which product would be named “Temptalia.” Funny!

    Hugs from your neighbor over in Sac-town ;0)

    • LOL! That would be me if it ever happened, rest assured on that! :) Had to be a pigment, ’cause I adore them so!

      Is it warmer in Sac? It was FIERCELY cold last night in the bay!

      Thanks so much for saying hi, Kaylynre!

      • Kaylynrenee

        My 1st MAC experience was with Tan pigment which is still probably my favorite MAC product today.

        It’s better here in Sac today. The sun is back. But yesterday, yes, it was COLD!!! What a tease last week was!

        • Pigments were what made me fall in love with MAC, too!! :)

          YAY! Happy to hear it. Still gray and cloudy here. Crossing fingers it’ll get a little warmer :)

        • Kaylynrenee

          Interesting. I don’t know why my 1st post there said ‘kaylynre’ but for the record, ‘kaylynrenee’ is what it will be from now on when I start paying attention before I submit. Lol.

  20. everyone seems to be doing MAC related april fools jokes today!

  21. Inaya

    WOW CHRISTINE! SERIOUSLY! WOW.. YOU HAD ME GOING EVEN AFTER THE APRIL FOOL GREETING… but then again im glad you dont endorse green lipgloss

  54. jasmine

  55. Meika

    Good one! Some of those colors do sound good though.

  56. i knew this was a joke!!! Temptalia’s collection without the perfect gold e/s didn’t make much sense to me….also your packaging wud never be just ‘black’ and last but not least, those lipglasses in funky colors were so not you…at least i thot so……haha…
    Karen from makeupandbeauty blog fooled us in the morning aswell….lol!!

  57. Quennie

  58. kristina

    Just so you know, I’m not even a MAC gal but I would have bought every l/s and nail polish and pigment.

    These colours seem very you and i love your shade names. “Engagement” for the aqua polish is fabulous.

  59. wow…i totally fell for that

  60. hahahahaha cool joke!

  61. You should still submit this to MAC! I would buy everything 😉

  62. Amanda

    HAHAHA!!! Omg Christine, I love you so much!!! That was a really good one!!! I really believed it, I was telling myself how I need to buy the “Temptalia” Pigment, and was going to congratulate you…until I saw the April fools joke!! You rock girl!! xoxo

  67. Jenni

    Christine.. This is the saddest post ever! I wish it wasn’t April Fools day today.. :[ The colors sound amazing. If this collection were real, it’d be the best MAC collection.. EVER. lol. Maybe MAC will read this post and beg you to collab with them :[ Pretty please?

  68. DevilishDoll

  69. )Megan

    Congrats! I’m so happy for you & soo excited to check this out when it comes. I love all the corals that are coming!

  77. Cristal

    I was like, but these colors are so bright, they don’t go together with the picture of the model…lol
