    Does anyone know if Nordstrom gets new MAC collections on the release date, so for July 8? I really want an MSF and I know they are going to sell out soon so I’m hoping to grab one while I can. The closest place that sells MAC by me is a Nordstrom counter. Hope you can help, thanks!

  2. Megan

    I definitely want the By Candlelight MSF. I also really like the mineralized eyeshadows. I wonder how Go For It lipstick looks on the lips.

  3. Melissa (divinem)

    Can’t wait for this release!

  4. Michelle

    Oooohhhh…… I love everything mineral and everything neutral! All of the non-crazy colors are on my list! (Which is a lot.) Purple lipstick? Green cremesheen??? Yucko!! This is MAC, though and some of you ladies are pretty excited about the non-conventional colors!! So yay for that! I collect every nude, pink and brown shade of everything so I’m saving up my lunch money!!! And eagerly awaiting this collection!

  5. erieli


    do u have any idea if this will launch early online? like “to the beach”. i remember there was a special code or something that ppl entered to purchase it early… i really want to purchase the msfs :)))))
    oh and that purple lippie lol

  6. MacAttackAddict

    Check out some more swatches from the In the Groove collection. Awesome! Special thanks to Karlasugar website for these.


    I definitely want that purple lippie it looks amazing and just the perfect color that i’ve dreamt of. As well as the blushes shadeows and stereo rose msf.

  7. stef

    for everyone freaking out about stereo rose, I just want to tell those of you who don’t already know, its not the same as the original. Its lighter and peachier and swatches differently.

  8. I never tried the Skinfinishes but I think Stereo Rose & Petticoat are pretty. WOuld u guys recommend this? I’m shade NW50.

    • aida

      I am very fair, and I have got Petticoat and I do recommend it, I was not sure but then I tried it on and I was in love

  9. Kim-Mary

    Oh for goodness sake MAC. Put this collection up on your website already. I’ve been checking all day with hopes & dreams that it would be available early. I want just about everything from this collection.
    When will be see the items listed for the Tartan Tale collection? As a part Sccot, I am uberexcited about that collection. I also want to see the photos of the Fabulous Cat collection already.

  10. roberta

    yeeeaaaa this collection is out tomorrow in uk, cannot wait To get some lipsticks!

    • Kiele

      What?!?! Roberta, I am sooooooooooo jealous of you right now. I thought it was coming out later for international sales? You guys are getting it before us in the USA. Not fair! just joking. Please let us know what you decide to buy and how you like the stuff. I keep checking the website but nothing so far. I’m really bummed. :-(

  11. Sara

    Is this going to be at all free standing MAC stores?

  12. Fudgedrops

    I am from Taiwan (Asia). This collection launched here on June 24. I went in the store on the 23rd to look at the samples and reserved some products for myself. I finally went in again yesterday to pick up my purchase. I would have preferred to wait until temptalia’s review come out. But, just as I predicted, when I went in yesterday, most of the colors were already gone. If it is a consolation to you all, Stereo rose and Petticoat did not come to my country. I already gave up on those two (my wallet says thanks). Maybe they will not come until July 8th, and I will still have a chance to make their acquaintance?

    • I’m glad you were able to get your goodies before they were gone, though — sorry I couldn’t give you a review beforehand, unfortunately! :(

  13. Mia

    In the Groove is available at the UK site now :)

    Really pretty lipsticks I think and cremesheen glasses as well. I hope it will be available in Denmark 😀

  14. Kiele

    WTF?! How come it isn’t released in the states yet?
    If anyone from the UK or elsewhere buys that purple lipstick please let us know how it is. I’m dying to get it so bad. Thanks.

  15. Janet

    Hi! I was wondering if people in the range of NC25 use Petticoat as a blush or mainly as a highlight… I already have Rose Diamond and Amber Diamond and mainly use those as my highlight. Is Petticoat worth buying?

  16. Vaitiare

    Hi there, I’m loving the MSFs and would LOVE to get Stereo Rose, Comfort and By Cendlelight!!!!! I’ve just been given soft & gentle by a friend (my first MAC product) and I think I’m starting to loving the brand. I just discovered your site (loving it btw)and was wondering if somebody out there could get those MSFs for me (just a shout out). I’m from Tahiti and we don’t have MAC here.

    @Christine: I’m sorry for this comment. Please feel free to delete it if it’s not appropriate. Thank you

    Here’s my email: vaitiarew at gmail dot com

  17. aida

    Yay! It was available yesterday at the department store near my house. I have bought Love to Love and In the Groove and I love them, such lovely shades and colours that I can use a lot. I was curious about Petticoat and Stereo Rose after hearing so much about them. I have got Petticoat but I am saving for trying my luck to see if there is still a Stereo Rose tomorrow…both are unique and amazing!!!

  18. Tabitha

    You know. I am so upset the this collection is out in the uk and not here in the US. Then I keep checking the mac website and it’s not even up yet. SO unfair!! I wanted it out early so I could order & receive in time for my birthday. Want that purple l/s soo bad. Any reviews of the items from our fellow uk’ers? please please hurry up mac and get this up on your site this weekend.

  19. Christine

    hi christine! Do you know if the collection is going to hit nordstrom or just the mac stores on July 8th?

  20. Dee E.

    Would Stereo Rose be OK and not clownish on a fairer skin tone. My skin is naturally fair but it has gotten tanner from this summer. I also love By Candlelight, is it too frosty though?

  21. Katie

    I just made my reservation for All Styled Up, I Like It Like That, Stereo Rose MSF, and Petticoat MSF. I’m so glad I reserved for To the Beach because now you can’t get Marine Life anywhere! Now I know to reserve for these collections, especially the ones with MSF’s and pretty packaging haha

  22. becky

    just to let you know Stereo Rose is now sold out in the uk after launching on the first.

  23. sue

    my amazing mac store actually pulled what I wanted and put it on hold for me today, can’t pay for it until thursday but at least I won’t miss out on stereo rose like I almost did on marine life, took me forever to find it LOL I already have by candlelight and it’s so beautiful

  24. I’m so happy By Candlelight is being repromoted (what seems like) so soon! Definitely not passing on it this time around. Other than that I’m excited for Jazzed.. out skintones are really similar and it looks great with your coloring!

  25. susi

    ahhhh soooo excited!!

  26. This collection is AMAZING! I wish I had a TON of money to buy it all! I am a MSF fanatic! I am getting Petticoat (i am so excited for this) Stereo Rose (i have seen swatches of this and it is GORE-JUS) and last but not least By Candlelight (just stunning)
    I must say I am a HUGE fan of cremesheens but darn it they dont last on the lips too long. I do love them but I like the MSFs better so I am not getting any cremesheens this time maybe if there are some left over in a week and they dont go as fast as the MSFs I will get some next pay! This collection will sure break the bank for MANY people! I hear of people spending 100 or more on Stereo Rose and that is INSANE! I saw it at a CCO! I cant stand how people go buy 5 of these and then sell them first it makes the people or really want it not be able to and then trying to sell it for triple the price come on people thats just not cool! I just wait for things to re-release even if it takes years! It reminds me of the non sense with the Urban Decay Alice and Wonderland palette! I saw people buying 10 of them at a time and guess what when it was my turn to get one they were sold out! Talk about PISSED off! THen I went on ebay thinking I could get one for 70 bucks which wasnt bad but NO 200-300 HELL NO!
    So yeah anyways GREAT COLLETION keep your eyes peeled for the release cause MAC has been tricky and releasing things wayyyy early then people are missing out! CHECK THE SITE!!

  27. sara

    do you have a swatch of saint germain next to all styled up? :) im debating on which one i should buy

  28. Tabitha

    I just ordered this from this collection. It’s up on the website now. Woop woop. I am ordering the purple lipstick and one of the pinks. I don’t like the other colors. Can’t wait to receive my order.

  29. Judy

    I placed my order early this morning. I decided to only get two of the lispticks though(Go for it & I like it like that). I really don’t have the money to buy too much this time around. Waiting for the Fabulous Feline collection to buy more. :-)

  30. Susan

    Unbeliveable! It wasn’t on-line last night; this morning it was and Stereo Rose is already sold out! They KNEW there would be a high demand and look at that. SAME deal when Marine Life came out. I’m getting SO upset with this company and wish I could voice my opinion to them. (As if a corporation would care.) I hate Marketing!

    Dupes anyone?

    • To play devil’s advocate: We have no idea how many they sold, though. They could have sold through 100,000 Stereo Roses. Did they deliberately keep supply low? I have no idea. But hot items sell out quickly, even when quantity seems high.

  31. Susan

    Hmmm, wish there was a place we could look up and see how many quantities were made. That would appease me somewhat. 😉 Thank you for your response!

  32. Kathie

    Nordstroms will have the stereo rose in one of those face/looks in the box deals. I do not have the date but it’s on this website. It’s under that Digi-pop collection that they are getting some time this month or next month. I saw it yesterday so, if I can’t get stereo rose now, I’ll just buy the look in the box and get it. Good luck ladies!

  33. Melody

    hmm is by candlelight a bit too light for NC35?

  34. This is crazy. Stereo rose already gone?! Wouldn’t they make MORE money if they stocked this appropriately?! a good product is a good product regardless of hype!

  35. Oh, I need to save to get some items! Love the colors of this collection…very fun!!

  36. OMG!! Stereo Rose is already Sold Out on the Canadian website!!!

  37. Kim-Mary

    Has anyone bought the pink and purple lipsticks from this collection yet? Please let me know. I want to buy all three but am scared if they don’t look right. I was going for jazzed but they are sold out now on the website and the store near me doesn’t have anymore. The person behind the counter said she doesn’t think they will get anymore in.

  38. Judy

    Hey Christine, I just read that MAC had came out with a blueberry colored lipstick. Do you know when that was? It must have been before I got so caught up with their collections? I’m wondering what it looks like. Thanks.

  39. Judy

    I just received my “Go for it” purple lipstick. I LOVE it!!! Just what I have been wanting. I would have preferred an amplified finish to be honest because the color is amazing and when it’s a cremesheen on my lips, it appears a little lighter than I like. Two thumbs up for this color. :-)

  40. Marisol

    LOVE THE GO FOR IT PURPLE LIPSTICK!!!! IT’S PERFECT!!!! I do wish it were in an amplified finish though. Maybe next time. Christine, would you know of a dupe in the drugstores for this beautiful shade of purple lipstick? THANKS AHEAD OF TIME.

  41. Gre

    Jazzed lipstick is back on the mac website as of Sunday, July 25!
