    This sound amazing, i’d like to see the 2 limited edition lipstick, the lipglasses sound good too, for those who like mac lipglasses, I found them to sticky, but those colors are beautiful, saint germain lipglass must be beautiful.

  2. do you know if they are going to make peachstock permanent on the main site? i dont have access to mac pro :(

  3. do you know if they are going to make peachstock permanent on the main site? i dont have access to mac pro :(

    omg peachstock lipglass. i wish they would make the permanent! i am more of a lipgloss girl than a lipstick person!

  4. Amandale

    I love this. Even though a majority of the LS are permanent, if you wanted to try a bright lipstick but are shy to you can try the lipglass! Yum!

  5. Maud

    Yay I’m excited I almost swapped a big ticket item for razzledazzler on MAke up alley and it fell through and then two days later this collection shows up, I will be at pro first thing Thursday, so excited!! But otherwise this collection is sort of odd, not necessarily bad just strange and random.

  6. Jenn

    This is bad news for my bank account.

  7. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy Amy

    Interesting~ Might grab a lipglass here and there. Maybe Russian Red lipstick too.

  8. Alina

    Gloss and polish versions of my favourite lipsticks? Yes please MAC!

  9. Anne

    I am ridiculously excited for this – matching polishes to lippies, especially ones that already have AND lipglasses – too much for me to take. I am now financially doomed!

  10. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Dee GUSnail

    This looks really interesting. I hope the glosses are at least semi-opaque. Otherwise, why bother?

  11. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of artemis artemis

    lipglass and nail polish versions of famous lipsticks! cool

  12. Oh, there’s quite a few of these sets I’m excited for, but none more so than SPICE!

  13. I’m definitely seeing shades on the promo pics that I’d love to try, though I do own some matching lipsticks/nail polishes from Dior already :)

  14. Ahh.. I was hoping for more LE lipsticks. Oh well. Good for my wallet then!

  15. Keshia

    Excited for this collection. Love the fact that they are making their best selling lipsticks into lipglosses.

  16. Chelle

    Boring.

    Colours we’ve already had for years? Oh how AWESOME. /sarcasm

  17. Liz

    Wow I’m excited on Saint Germain Lipglass!!! =”)

  18. Leslie

    I wasn’t interested in this at first, but now I’m a little curious about the LE lipsticks and lipglasses. Christine, will you be swatching/reviewing all the shades?

  19. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Meghann Meghann

    MAC is speaking my language now. MAC is #1 on my list for the best lip gloss. I’ll probably get stuff out of this collection rather than the famous summer collection that I usually rack up on. The only way my lip gloss will be poppin like lil’ mama says in her song is to get a MAC lipglass. So I will definitely pick up a few LE lipglasses. :)

  20. iliana

    REBEL LIPGLASS!!! Love the lipstick, I must have the gloss version!

  21. Pamela M

    Um yea….why couldnt MAC do more limited edition lipsticks/glasses. Still interested though. Would love to have angel in lip glass form.

  22. laura m

    so very exciting, mostly about the lipglasses to go with my favorite lipsticks!

  23. Tekoa

    152.5 people currently love this while 21.5 could leave it. Does the .5 person mean they are ambivalent? lol

    • We’re still trying to figure out why there will randomly be half votes :( We have the values as either +1 or -1! So there shouldn’t be any.

    • Devi

      Lol, I came here just to ask. I thought that maybe you were allowed to choose both options now, in case you couldn’t decide whether you loved it or wanted to leave it.

      I don’t think that’s a great idea in particular, but it made me laugh.

  24. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Aisha Aisha

    I’m actually pretty excited about this, as I reach for lipglasses more than my lipsticks…

  25. Kayla

    This is an awesome idea for a collection. I’ll definitely have to snatch up Russian Red nail polish.

  26. I love those colours! i want them all :)

  27. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Malia Malia

    I like this collection… but I LOVE that the promo pic is.. auf DEUTSCH!!! =D

  28. slick

    Christine do you know if the lipglass and nail polish finishes will mirror the lipstick finishes?

  29. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy amy

    This would make more sense if they were actually sold as sets. How annoying would it be to go and buy a coordinated set in a particular shade, only to find the LS or NP is sold out and you’d have to track down the other part, especially since most of the LS is permanent, and many may already have it. This is probably the worst marketing plan MAC has come up with, because you know all the ebay sellers are going to snatch up the LE polishes, which are *all* of them, and crank up the prices. Well, I guess as long as MAC meets their profit margin, they don’t care who buys them. Wow, what a way to show appreciation to your market base, MAC…

  30. Samantha Ching

    Omgggg I need to get backups for peach stock!

  31. wowoowowowoow :D :D …… a gonna get Rebel , girl about town , impassioned and ???? so manyyy lipglasses from the collection to pair with my fav. lipsticks :D :D 

  32. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Deanna AstroD

    I hope the quality of the Lacquers doesn’t let these cute little sets down! Can’t wait to see swatches :)

  33. Caitlin Mary

    I kept missing peachstock so this time I am so getting it <3

  34. Nicol D.

    Alot of these you have listed the states aren’t getting.

  35. Temptalia

    Nicol D. These are all available to PRO members as of this AM, actually!

  36. Nicol D.

    Hmm.. not what I was told. But ok cool!!

  37. Hanny Kim

    Oh my Gosh!! Peacy stock lipglass! what a wonderful new products..especially .. satin finish makes my lip super dry.! so i need this lipglass!

  38. LaKesha

    JUST ORDERED ANGEL, MYTH, SNOB, AND SAINT GERMAIN LIPGLASS!

  39. Ava

    This is a nice set! Although I already have angel, ravishing, pink nouveau, and please me. Do they come in a set of 3 or can you buy them separately? 

  40. PinkDiva512

    I am so new to makeup but I NEED the trio that is pictured on the second model…the light pink one. I have read all the descriptions but cant figure it out…. Please help….

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Kafka Kafka

       @PinkDiva512 I think that’s probably St. Germain. I’m not a Mac person generally but I bought it recently as it’s my favorite shade of pink. St. Germain is much lighter than Pink Nouveau and the photo shows Tokyo which the captions seem to indicate is the city they have associated with St. Germain. (Even though it should be Paris which is where St. Germain is actually located!)
       

      • PinkDiva512

         @Kafka Thanks i actuyally thought it was Saint Germain but I just wanted to make certain…. 

    •  @PinkDiva512 It’s actually snob.

  41. Miss Steff

    Whoa…the description got me all excited..the photos make it look like a swing and (maybe)a miss :-/ Can’t wait for the review:)

  42. amy

    Rebel and Girl About Town Lipglasses?! My favourite lipsticks ever, i can’t wait

  43. I genuinely squee’d when I saw this. Angel lipglass and lacquer? YES PLEASE!!!

  44. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Ana Ana G

    Love this concept! Keeps it very simple! I’m probably getting some of these!

  45. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Gina Gina C

    Half of me was like, “THIS IS SO PERFECT,” and the other half was like, this is a really lazy way for them to make money without coming up with new shades. Regardless, I’m really excited!

  46. I really like the idea of this collection, though I doubt I would buy a lipglass or a nail polish from MAC. Still, so pretty!
     
    (also loving that I can see comments from facebook on the main site!)

  47. Maritza

    Christine,
     
    When do you expect to have the swatches up?  I just can’t wait!  ; )
     
    Thx

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

    I would actually be interested in some of these “sets”, were they actually being sold as sets. How annoying will it be to choose a lip shade, only to find that all the nail colors have been snatched up by ebay resellers, who jack up the prices, due to the LE status of the nail polish? I guess MAC doesn’t really care, as long as they make their profit margin. Wow, what a way to show appreciation for their loyal followers. This sort of thing is what really turned me off MAC.

    • Hannah

       @xamyx I’m actually quite relieved that tehy are not being sold as sets! I’m not a huge lipglass fan, so I’ll probably only be buying the lipsticks and nailpolishes. And, I already own several of these lipsticks and would like a matching nailpolish, and it would be such a pain to have to buy a set (and thus have 2 of a lipstick) in order to get my hands on the polish.
       
      If anything, not selling these in sets seems more geared toward loyal followers, since they probably already have many of the permanent shades!

    •  @xamyx I completely disagree – lots of people already own many of the permanent lipsticks – it seems like it would be very offputting to their most loyal customers to only sell them as sets. 

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy xamyx

        @Emi at Project Swatch Then why not make the polishes at least semi-perm, and sell them as sets, as well? Or, at least rotate them into the perm line? My biggest issue, is that MAC has to know that so much of their LE goes up on ebay, at a minimum mark-up of 3-4X MSRP, with alot of that having to do with the hype they surround the collections with. If I want a matching LS & NP, I want to be able to walk into a MAC store and get both, not have to try to track the other down all over, or turn to a greedy online reseller.

  49. Laura

    I’m super excited for an entire Myth line, it’s my hg of all time! I’m also super excited for peachstock I lost my old one!

  50. Sasha Dorman

    Omg! loving the peachy nude colors! My poor wallet LOL

  51. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Anita Anita

    403.5 are loving it and 54.5 are leaving it! How about yo
    what’s up with that? haha
    excited for some of these c:

  52. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Vern VernLovesMac

    @Christine will all these colors be available in the US?  Also will they be at all MAC counters or just pro stores.  I rememeber I could not buy anything from the Iris Apfel Collection at my local Macy’s MAC Counter. Thank you.

    •  @VernLovesMac  Yes, they’re going to be in the U.S.  I’m not sure the distribution of counters/online/PRO, as official information won’t be released until the 26th – but I know that ALL of these shades are available online to PRO members and should be available to all next week.

      •  @Christine (Temptalia) i went to my pro store today and in-stores you can only buy the ones in the “north america collection” its really annoying because all the colors that i wanted were in the “asia collection” and i don’t really want to order before i see them in person ;(

  53. Emily

    This is such a brillian idea, to have matching lipglasses to the permanent lipsticks.  I don’t understand why they wouldn’t make the lipglasses permanent though.  I don’t know if it’s just me, but I enjoy having an exact match lipgloss with my lipstick.  It makes the work much easier.  I really enjoy the ad campain for this collection, by the way.

  54. Flossy

    Am I the only one who is starting to wonder if Mac are running out of ideas for collections?

  55. Tonni

    Finally, a collection that I’m excited for! I just wish the nail polish wasn’t so expensive!

  56. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Helena coldvault

    Why is MAC doing this to me?! I want so much. D:

  57. Mel

    I am interested in the LE shades, but Saint Germain, Rebel, and GAT in a lipglass form? Hello!?! Where do I sign up? Looks like another early morning visit to MAC on the way to class. :)

  58. Yazmin

    Im a bit confused.  So they have all these colors coming out which you can buy separate?  Or/and you choose from the 7 sets which are minis?

    • All of these are coming out, but you can buy them separately. They’re all full-sized.

      • PinkDiva512

         @Christine (Temptalia)  so 7 above are going to be available both separately and as a set of minis?  What is the price of the sets?

        •  @PinkDiva512 Everything is available individually.  Everything is full-size. There are no sets.

        • PinkDiva512

           @Christine (Temptalia) But in the description above it says” that we created 3-piece mini-collections of Lipstick, Lipglass, and Nail Lacquer trios in 7 classic palettes. Perfectly coordinated, regionally inspired.”

        •  @PinkDiva512 They are referring to the concept of the same shade of lipstick, lipgloss, and nail polish. They’re not sold in sets, and there are no minis or anything like that. Each piece is available individually and each piece is full-sized! If you bought each shade in lipstick, lipglass, and nail polish formula, it would be $45 – same as if you bought each piece individually.

        • PinkDiva512

           @Christine (Temptalia) o ok i get thanks Christine

  59. Sandra Hernandez

    more reason for me to get some missing must-haves for my kit!!

  60. Jessica Warren

    Will all of the colors be available online?

  61. Wendy Lynne Misener

    Anyone know the colour in the lower right hand picture? Wondering if it is Russian Red which I already own. In this photo, it seems to look a little more pinky perhaps.

  62. Sandra Ying Yang

    Dios mío que colores más bonitos!

  63. Ucheju Akporiaye

    As nice as it is, I do wonder what is the difference if use a Mac lippy and apply clear gloss or as mac wld call it lipglass on it?

  64. Daniellenm30

    Oh my god… I can’t control my excitement. I don’t think MAC polish is the greatest quality, but I like the idea for this collection. And I’m curious about the limited edition lipsticks.

  65. Maude

    They are already online but when are we gonna be able to see some swatches?

  66. SimplyKarenC

    Are these going to be available in stores or just online?

  68. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of gabis gabi

    I swooned the first time I heard about this collection, but now that I see there’s nothing special about it- no special packages, no miniatures or makeup bags, nor even sets or gifts combining each color’s products- the sparkle has gone. I’m not a lipgloss girl and since most of the lipsticks are permanent , only the nail lacquers are interesting for me.  I still think this was a genious idea from MAC but I wish they had put on a little more effort making this a special collection rather than just random products united by the same color. I hate when limited collection items can be mistaken for regular permanent ones because they have no special package or label. It just doesn’t feel like a collection.

  69. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of gabis gabi

    Plus, they would sell a lot more of the permanent items, the lipsticks, if the collection had a different package or product kits. It’s interesting how they had this brilliant idea but didn’t take full advantage of its potential like they could. This collection could really be a top top selling one.
