  1. I SO do want to try the mascara!!

  2. Jackie S.

    I see some definite items I could like!

  3. tracy

    nice looks for packaging but yikes on the prices! $60 for a beauty powder?$22 for lip products?

  4. bree

    why so expensive :(

  5. Kat

    Wow at first I was excited but now I’m disappointed…. As much as I want the stuff I dunno if I can justify $30 for a blush shade that mac used to offer at regular price. Also, lipstick at almost twice the usual price? Why are they price gouging all of a sudden???

  6. Claire

    The prices are just…whoa. I might pick up the light lipstick and 2/3 nail lacquers, though I’ll wait for swatches first. The thing I’m lusting for most is the packaging!

  7. Kelly

    OMG those prices…

  8. i can’t wait for your swatches, they look so beautiful! especially the lipsticks :)

  9. Naheeda

    Dont like colours of lipsticks!! Sound like halloween!
    Although love colours of eyeshadows! Never wear like this colours – would like to try on!
    Oh yeah, love the bag & eyeliners!
    Great collection!

  10. Shayna

    I am all over this <3

  11. jasmin

    Why is everything more expensive than usual? Is it because of the packaging?

  12. I love the packaging and these colors, usually in collections there’s allot I don’t like I bought collections before and came home gave and split up the collections to give others cuz I only like a few things but this is a good one it looks to me.

  13. I’m loving the look of the nail polishes and the lipglass! I’m most excited to see swatches of those! Since the collection is a little on the pricey side I might have to limit myself to one or two pieces! Gorgeous!

  14. Jamie

    The colors look boring, the prices are too high, and I hate the packaging! Pass!!

  15. Michelle

    MAC is out of their mind if they think I’m going to pay Chanel prices for their makeup

    • Nancy

      Forreals man, I’d rather go hit up the Chanel counter then pay these mac prices..couture or no couture.. X.X

  16. Rosie

    I think some of the colors as described sound beaituful. But I just think it’s ridiculous how much they’re charging for this line. I know “Gareth Pugh” is a fashion designer but really like they’re upping the quality in their products I highly doubt it, but would love for them to prove me wrong. I think MAC is going down hill….. anyone else feel the same? MAC seems to lack quality in several lines launched this year…. LAME MAC

    Re: The Glosses

    MUST. SEE. SWATCHES.

  18. simply divine, the pigments look gorgeous.

  19. Sam

    i was ecstatic when i saw Strada would be back, but im not paying 30 dollars for it.

  20. Kathryn

    I can’t even begin to imagine how expensive this collection will be in Australia. Probably upwards of $100 for a beauty powder alone.. I hope no one pays that much!

  21. Noir

    I have been waiting for this collection since forever, I can’t wait!

  22. Linzi

    Omg they look lush! My bank account is not going to be happy with all these new collections coming out! I love the look of that berry coloured lipstick :) Thanks!

  23. RAELENE

    HEY , DO YOU HAVE THE SWATCHES FOR THE METAL -X CREAMS SHADOW AND THE 2 PIGMENTS YET ??????

  24. Tanya

    I may be a out of date or something, but who is Gareth Pugh?

  25. Miss j

    yes yes i cant wait!!! i love da packaging. MAC has so many collection comin out before the new year. I really want the lipglasses & lipsticks. I see that purple/berry lips are the new fall/ winter color! either way i love the collection

  26. alexa parnell

    Does anyone know what Mac means when they say “repromote” of Strada? I was crushed when they discontinued it. I’d like to know if this means they might start carrying it again or if it really is just a limited edition.

  27. Corliss

    I’ll be getting the lipsticks, the metal X eyeshadows and that Gorgeous brush. I can’t wait.

  28. Nancy

    HOLY ANGELINA JOLIE $60 FOR A BEAUTY POWDER..I’D RATHER GET CHANEL AT THAT PRICE.. =/ SORRY MAC </3

  29. Piper

    The packaging looks like something you could buy from one of those fake mac sites.

  30. Kim-Mary

    I haven’t been excited about a courture collection in years. This one is amazing. I do wish the prices were a little less than they are, but hey, if you love makeup and MAC you’ll buy no matter what. When will we start to see swatches? I’m interested in the strada blush, the two glosses, both lippies, piggies, mascara and the polishes.

  31. ashley

    how disappointing . this collection sucks!

  32. Melissa

    I love MAC, but the pricing for this line is the same as or very close to Chanel in Canada. And between the two, I prefer Chanel. Once this line hits the stores, if I see one colour that really speaks to me, then perhaps I will purchase. Otherwise, if MAC is going to cost this much, I will have to pass.
