    what beautiful packaging! These are not for me, however. I don’t do lip gloss or pigments.

  2. Nastassia

    Ugh! I wish they did the pigments again like tartan tale.. But I will be getting the rose lipgoss set

  3. I’m not really a lipgloss or pigment kinda girl but these look lovely, although it’s because of the packaging! :) This would be such a cute christmas gift idea.

  4. Caitlin

    When will we see swatches of all the holiday MAC stuff? :)

    Very cute. I have a few hat boxes and these little minis remind me of them.

    I wanted so bad a real pigment set…no these.

    The 4 Tenderly Warm Crushed Metallic Pigments are so pretty! Just my cup of tea!

  8. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy xamyx

    Pigments… However, they’re the Crushed Metal sorts. I’ll still check them out; perhaps the formulas been improved.

  9. Liz

    Ah so adorable! I’d buy it all if the Estee Lauder company didn’t sell in China. Oh well, their loss.

    For cryin’ out loud, why don’t they just end my suffering and repromote Jardin Aires, Copperized and Sweet Sienna. I’d grab those up in a heart-beat.

  11. Joanna

    i’m looking forward to buying my first set of crushed metallic pigments :) yay! that green set looks awesome!

  12. Lutigs

    Does anyone know for sure if Mac now test on animals? I really love all the Christmas stuff, but I don’t want to buy it if they are testing on animals

  13. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Jade Jade

    I don’t think I’ll be picking anything up out of this! The crushed metallic pigments have never appealed and the lipglossess…. well :P I guess we will see!!

  14. Jaz

    Pretty!! I think I want the lipglass sets.

  15. I just wish Mac would stop with the metallic pigments already

  16. I am confused… I received a mailer in the mail from MAC that shows the new stuff coming out.. these lipglosses/metal pigments included and the card says on counter October 25th… but this says November.. which one is right?

  17. Allie

    Hm, I was kind of excited for this but none of the sets as a whole are wowing me. I want the darker half of the Lavish Rose set along with the latter half of the Cocktail Coral set, but until I see swatches I’m pretty sure I’ll live without them. xD

    The pigments sets look so great…..but I’m not a pigment person; I have two sets from past collections that I’ve touched only once. We’ll see, though….these are tempting! I’m really liking the lipglosses sets. I’ll wait for Christine’s review on everything I’m interested in before purchasing anything; no impulse buying this time!

  19. I LOVE Cremesheen Glass formula, but really, I think the color selection in the lip sets is pretty poor… I would only be interested if I could pick shades from each set to mix and match.

  20. KK

    That purple-gold dazzleglass looks really cool! Can’t wait to see swatches. I really hope Mac knocks it out of the park. I haven’t been wowed lately, so I’ve been hoping for a good holiday release to get my Mac fix!

  21. lalakitty

    The passion collection is sick it has my name written all ova it toast for purple sparkles

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Laura Laura

    I definitely want the Lavish Rose Lip Gloss set, but I think that’s about it.

    I wish MAC would have brought out mini pigment sets like they’ve had in the past, instead of the crushed pigment stacks :( I love the colours in the Brilliantly Cool set but I just don’t get on with this texture – I can’t figure out how to use it properly!

  23. Cassia

    Are those pigments taller? or are they actually sample pot size? I feel cheated if they are. I feel they keep getting smaller :/

    Admittedly that purple/gold dazzleglass looks amazing

  24. I was at the MAC holiday launch party here in DC on Tuesday for the “glamourdaze” portion of the launch, and I thought maybe they would have had these out for viewing but no dice. However, my MAC store as well as Nordstorm are taking preorders on these sets and the nice lady at Nordstorms went to the back and pulled all the sets pictured here so I could get a better look before I preorderd. I preordered the nicely nude and the lavish rose lipgloss sets along with some items that sold out during the launch party at my MAC store. I can’t WAIT until I get my goodies!

    I saw swatches of these products on Spektra and wasn’t overly impressed. If the prices are for full sized products, they’re not bad. But I’m still not very likely to pick any of these up. There are also some sets in leopard print bags which look more interesting than these. At least if get some decent use out of those bags.

  26. Kathleen

    Oh no… I preordered the purple/pink gloss set before the individual names were said, and I think I just bought Color Saturation from the goodbyes section of the website. Can anyone confirm if it’s the same?

  27. The pigments are very similar to last years holiday collection.

  28. Beck

    “I’ve Got a Crush on You” in the “Guilty Passions / 4 Brilliantly Cool Crushed Metallic Pigments”

    is a dead ringer for MAC’s Club.

    The boxs are so cute, I don’t need any of these as I have so many similar colors. But the packaging is TDF.

  29. megs

    I’m looking at the MAC website now and I cant find the pigments or the lipglass sets…help?

  30. Lexy

    i can’t wait for this! I just ordered some of the GD portion online and didn’t realize this wasn’t up yet. The lipglass sets are my fav. How much is this typically in US i cannot remember!

  31. Anna

    I’m debating if I want to get one of the pigment sets, it’s a good deal for four of them but I know I won’t use them a lot at all so I might just invest in the lipglass sets!
