  1. OHMYGOD Everything That Glitters nail polish. I MUST HAVE!!!!!!!!!!

    • It’s gorgeous! It looks quite similar to Zoya Storm (holiday 2012). Also, looks like a nice dupe for Butter London Black Knight.

      If it really compares, I will get the Zoya version, as it is quite a bit cheaper.

      • Imsi

        Thanks for that! I didn’t want to shell out that much money for a polish!

      • Jen

        Yeah I think it looks a lot like Butter London’s Black Knight, though I wouldn’t call it a dupe for that since Butter London is a dollar or two cheaper than MAC nail polishes now, lol…

      • Baby Cakes

        It also looks like a dupe for Picture Polish Mask-a- rade. Skip the polishes.

  2. Jennifer

    Do Beauty, Innocence and Outrageously fun lipsticks have any shimmer?

  3. Audrey

    Some of those lipglosses look absolutely terrible! And some of the lipstick shades don’t seem to fit into the “holiday” category, or they don’t even seem appropriate for winter months. It just seems strange to release a bright barbie-purple color for a holiday collection.

    The Glamourdaze lipstick reminds me of the Revlon lip butter in Pink Truffle!

  4. Kimberly

    This looks promising!

  5. I quite like two of the lipsticks: innocence and glamourdaze. Glamourdaze looks a bit thin on the coverage. I’ll have to check if it is a lustre finish because that is always a KOD for me. It also reminds me of Mehr and I wonder how close the two are.. perhaps this one is plummier??

    • Lulee

      are you sure you’re thinking about mehr? they look nothing alike…

      • you’re right..not MAC Mehr, but a Rimmel lipstick (Azteque sp?? label is a bit worn and I don’t think it’s available any longer) Got the two mixed up in my head as I frequently grab either or

    • Dana J

      Its a cremesheen…I think its a more opaque version of Capricious. I like it a lot too!

      • KaseyCannuck

        Capricious is what popped into my head as soon as I saw Glamourdaze as well.

      • oh good cremesheen works fine on me, lustre is just not a preference. Thanks for the other MAC dupe.. because looks like this one is sold out on MAC online and Nordstrom.

        • Yellowlantern

          Looks like Bloomingdales still has Glamordaze (they call it “Glamorfaze” on their website lol) if you’re still interested.

          • Thanks for the heads up! :) Yes, I caught that last night. Unfortunately, Bloomingdales doesn’t work for me due to their ordering restrictions. You must use a US credit card and also ship to US address. I typically order from Saks and Nordies since I can order using my Cdn credit card and ship to my USA address.. then ship here. That’s how I get around export restrictions for lines such as MAC, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Tom Ford, etc.. etc…. I think I have it down to a fine art :0)

      • Thanks for the dupe info Dana.. looks like I’m going to need it.

    • xamyx

      That’s exactly why MAC lippies don’t appeal to me. I like a “creamier” texture, so I have to mix with a balm, which is a PITA. Every so often, though, there’s a shade that calls to me. From this collection, I’m loving Dramatic Encounter, but it seems so dupable.

      • MAC lipsticks have always been pretty darned good in my books… except for the dreaded Lustre finish which isn’t my cup ‘o tea. Yes, I really like the longevity and finish of some of the pricier lovelies in my ever growing collection, but MAC always has a fantastic range of colours.. I can’t fault them in that regard whatsoever. I like your choice too, Amy but I’m at vampmax (state of achieving maximum holding capacity for vamp lipstick) since I seem to be wearing lighter colours and even more red this year :)

  6. Dramatic Encounter, Outrageously Fun and Glamourdaze look like they could be interesting. I’m really trying to limit the number of near-duplicates I have in my collection, though, so I’ll be curious to hear your comparisons. The first three polishes look fairly nice as well.

  7. Ali

    Oh god the nail polishes look AMAZING! I’ve never tried mac’s before though, never heard great things but these look promising. Girl trouble looks EXACTLY like mac’s kitchmas pigment, one of my favorites!

  8. KK

    Love the looks of Outrageously Fun and Everything That Glitters! The others, I think I’d have to see your full-face shots to really say one way or the other.

  9. Miss J

    I MUST have Outrageously Fun (even though it reminds me more of a Spring shade). And what the hell at liking a MAC nail polish?! Actually, I like two. And I’m tempted. That’s just sick and wrong!

    • xamyx

      I like *three* of the four! It’s a shame though, MAC polishes just don’t like my nails. I’m also digging the dark lipstick & gloss, but I’m sure I have dupes, so I’ll pass.

  10. Raquel

    the nail polishes are STUNNING!

  11. YAY! You’re the best! I’ve been searching for swatches. Thanks so much!

  12. jen

    Is Impossibly Sweet Pink…. according to the web site its pink with multi-dimensional pearl.. It does not look pink at all. Can you give me a comparable lipglass so I can guess about the color? thank you

  13. Amy

    I like Beauty…basically it. I like Limelight too but there seems to be cheaper dupes.

  14. Carrie

    Wow. I’m really impressed overall by what I’ve seen – hoping these too live up to the swatches!

  15. TygerKitty

    Oh wow, first mac collection in QUITE some time that caught my eye! Lovely!

  16. Evilyn1983

    OH MY GOD these polishes look divine!!! I’m going to have to scoop them up when I pick up my preorder tomorrow! And some of the eyeshadows too!

  17. Wow! The All that glitters polish is amazing. Reminds me of Deborah Lippmanns polishes.
    Outrageously and Innocence are such lovely shades. Def on my wishlist!! xx

  18. I love Deliciously Demure lipglass and all the nail polishes!!!

  19. Brownie

    Hey, I’m digging the ls & np…they can keep the glasses. I’ll pass. :-) No thank you.

  20. blueraccoon

    I’m surprised at liking a couple of the nail polishes. The lip colors seem kind of…random, though, and I’m not liking all the colors.

  21. Deb

    I really like Everything That Glitters nail polish. Otherwise I think this collection is a skip for me.

  22. Jade

    I wouldn’t have picked Outrageously Fun as being a Cremesheen finish, it looks too reflective, almost frost or glaze finish. I quite like the look of Glamourdaze. Those polishes are HOT!! They are seriously amazing looking!

  23. VickyM

    I really like the girl trouble polish…thats a bad thing for my wallet, though it´s a good thing that the polish is the only item I like from this. :)

  24. Nothing really speaks to me… Flight of Fancy, maybe? Everything That Glitters is too similar to both their own eyeshadow, All That Glitters, in name, and Butter London’s the Black Knight in color.

  25. Dominique

    I picked up the5 lipsticks, I love them all ! In november I will purchase a set and 2 nail polishes. This collection is soft and lovely ! Thanks for posting the swatches Christine.

  26. Glenda

    OMG!!! MAC is breaking me up on this collection!! First MAC collection that I have EVER truly LOVE LOVE LOVED:)

  27. wow! Girl Trouble and Everything That Glitters polishes are soooo cute! I’ve never actually seen a MAC polish that I loved (that wasn’t dupe-able) but those are spectacular. Can’t wait for the reviews! Thanks for the sneak peek

  28. Dulce Moreira

    Is pink fade similar to snob!??

  29. Isobel

    will be buying all that glitters, though I keep telling myself I won’t buy anymore nail polish :)

  30. Yellowlantern

    I wonder if MAC finally has made some better quality polishes…your swatches look quite smooth. Even a shade I’d anticipate as being a trouble maker like In The Limelight looks very nice and even.

    Also, I’m quite tempted by Deliciously Demure lipglass though I’m sure it’s dupable if I can’t get a hold of it.

  31. I find of wanted Innocence. But the frost formula doesn’t love my lips. :(

  32. MAC Dramatic Encounter Lipstick is just wow! I want it. Everything That Glitters is lovely, too! MAC Innocence Lipstick is lovely, too but I like it less than other products :)
    Thanks a lot for the swatches!!!

  33. Carolyne

    I just got Deliciously Demure, among several other things, about 10 minutes ago from my counter and it has a very brownish taupe undertone to it. I’m trying to decide if it is too dark on me. It looks like a perfect shade on you though.

  34. I admittedly went for Dramatic Encounter (…it’s fall!), but, honestly, not much from this collection stood out to me as particularly unique or “must have,” even though it’s all ~LE.

    I do like Pink Fade lipglass and Everything That Glitters polish, but I think Pink Fade would be easy to dupe, as would ETG. I haven’t heard great things about MAC nail lacquers, anyway, though I’ve never tried any myself.

  35. Emme

    Endless night looks great! How does it perform?

  36. Ana

    Is “In the Limelight’ similar to “Mischievous Mint” from the Quite Cute collection?

  37. Veronica

    Holy wow to “Everything That Glitters” Polish and an honorable mention to “In the Limelight.” They look like fun shades

  38. Odalys

    Hello :)

    I was debating which lipglass would go best with Mac Innocence? The Deliciously Demure or Impossibly Sweet in your opinion?

    Thank you so much, as always, you’re swatches and reviews are sooo helpful :)
