    I’m excited, i love sets 😀

  2. Ohh yay brush sets. I can’t wait for them, I’ll never buy a single brush it’s too expensive.

  3. Tahnee

    I can see the images :(

  4. Without pictures I think I want everything… oh no… eeeek.

  5. cloudburst

    I can’t wait to see pictures!

  6. Catherine

    Wow, these sound awesome, and seem like great deals price-wise!

  7. Tahnee

    Yay I see the one picture now, I cant wait for more!! THis sounds fantastic! I will have to start saving!!

  8. This sounds fun! Can’t wait to see more.

  9. Jamie

    I’ll be getting the palettes!

  10. Margot

    I’d love to see pictures of this collection !

  11. Keira

    Will these be available online? There’s no Nordstrom anywhere near where I live.

  12. Skyler

    OH MY GOD. I will be SO BROKE. And on the same day as Colour Craft?! Whose bright idea was it to release two of the year’s biggest collections on the same day? That actually makes me quite angry. Two of my biggest loves are mineralized shadows and palettes, so there’s no way I can pass on these. I anticipate buying most of each collection. Meh. Stupid MAC.

  13. Estefania

    THAT CHEAP????????????????????????????????????????????????? o_O

  14. DevilishDoll

    I think I want Fresh Cut Palette and Graphic Garden Palette, not sure though, since the color descriptions don’t seem to have been released yet. But this collection comes out a little over a week before my birthday. =D

  15. I have all the Canadian prices as well as the American, if you’d like. Also, the blurb:

    Dejaview, 3-D Floribundia. A modern graphic garden grows like a haute hologram in black-and-white chic. Special-edition new compacts and kits that intrigue with the illusion of depth and movement, as the surface morphs into an alternate design, another way of seeing… As much an objet d’art, as a collectible makeup accessory. Sleek metal compacts with lenticular op-art plaque. Glossy black-and-white Lip bags feature two Lipsticks plus Lipglass. Choose from Define & Blend or Shape & Perfect Brush Kits. Only at Nordstrom, Only by MAC.

  16. cmferrets

  26. Elle

  27. Angie

  30. Anne

  31. Rachel

    I hope that the boxes will be available on the Nordstrom website! If they’re really only available in North America, the website is my only hope of laying my hands on them.

  32. Mikki

    Iiiiiiiiiii want the Sun Siren Look Box…. *sigh*

  33. Renee

    is “At The Bay” a location?

  34. I can’t wait to see the pictures!!!!!!!!!

  35. Nars

    I can’t wait for the pics! Sounds like the look boxes are quite a deal. But then, I would have to see the pics first! lol By the way does anyone have any idea about the whereabouts of the rose romance nordstrom exclusive quad online? I’ve been looking for it everywhere but nowhere on shows it. And that makes me sad.

  36. Tammy

    I need this collection!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh!!!! Brush set both eye pallet and the last set. Ommgggggg & I can’t wait for colour craft either!!! July will be my demise!!!! Can’t wait!!!! Woohooo!!!!

  37. Miss_M

    Sounds great !!

    Hopefully we get a large part of this collection in the Netherlands, just like last year :)

  38. Annamari

    will this collection be available in europe?

  39. Monet

    I want the Sun Siren Look Box. Mathematically, is it worth it? lol

  40. Miss Trendy

    i want the eye and face sets (i’ll pass on the lip sets). July is gonna be pricey. But these kits have some of the permanent collection shadows i have always wanted! cant wait.

  41. Miss Trendy

    i’ve always wanted the 181… glad i can get it in these kits… and a mini mascara is great for on the go!

  42. Jessica

    I can’t wait for the pictures! I’m excited for this collection! :)

  43. jodie

    will you be able to buy them at mac counters or on the mac website?

  44. Alexa

    does promotional size mean the se one?
    will it be just as good as the normal one?

  45. I liked the brush sets better from last year. The 219 was included instead of the 194. I need to get my hands on one of those…

  46. Aleia

    A SA told me these brush sets are mass produced by machine, and the regular brushes are handmade. She also told me the quality of the sets is not as high as the regular brushes. I think this is true, I have a 217 brush from the Holiday Collection (The red brushes), and a regular 217 brush, in my opinion the regular 217 brush is so much softer and nicer.

  47. what does a 181 brush look like?

  48. Sabah

    im really hoping that this collection is available in canada (even though i know it says above available @ the bay) but i soo wanted the quad from the rose romance collection, it is not available at the bay, i asked them & they told me they wont be getting it. i had read somewhere it was going to be available at the bay, but too bad. :(


    i <3 the idea of premade boxies! 😀

  50. cmferrets

    so do the look boxes contain all the full size mac products for that one price? or are they minis or in palettes? i dont get it ?

  51. classic

    I will wait to see the pic

  52. Ada

    I’m excited about the e/s palettes! Maybe the lip bags too!

  53. Michelle

    Will this collection only be sold at Nordstrom?

  54. I would love to win the “On A Mission” blush!!! I just started wearing makeup a year ago and quickly became an addict!!! I love MAC and since I have started wearing MAC the “Style Warrior” collection is the SEXIEST AND FIERCEST collection this far! I want it all!!! Also, I am an animal print fanatic and this collection fits my personality to the “T”!!! Love it!

  55. Hoonie

    really want to see the brushes sets !!

  56. Letty

    I want to try Sun Siren or maybe all.

  57. JO

    Okay silly question…It says this is for the Nordstrom Anniversary…does this mean this collection is only available at Nordstrom…I hope not as i dont have a Nordstrom in the uk…Mind you it would save my wallet lol
