    Would love to know the names of each e/s in quads. Love the monochromatic.

  2. Andrea

    Everything looks amazing!!!!

  3. Carolyn

    Why, MAC, why? I think I won’t spend anything until this comes out… And what to choose?!? The blushes and eye shadows look so pretty but the liners and pigments look so fun!

  4. stephanie

  5. Brandi

    Those last 4 pigments are those just glitter or are they pigments with glitter in them?

    I wish Violet Trance wasn’t a matte…i got this shadow in the Pandimoniam Quad and I love it but just wish it want matte.

  9. adelinky

    GAHHHH I’m going to have a heart attack!
    saving as of now!

  10. Redhead (hi)

    I found some swatches!

    It shows everything but the Glitters, Gloss Texture, Pigments and High Strung lipsticks. I can’t stand paper swatches (We’re going to be applying makeup to our skin, not paper masks that we glue to our faces!) but these are good as far as one-month-early swatches go. :)

  11. JACKIE

    I want everything on here..

    Twitter: ladzj823

  12. Oh god. I’ve been saving up all my B2M and $$$ for this…

    I want all of the lipglasses, all of the lipsticks, two of the quads (Notoriety & Photo Realism), possibly some of the shadows, and maybe one or two of the liners. I just am thankful I don’t do pigments, or I’d be royally effed! :-p

  13. Plus maybe the blushes too… have to swatch first, though!

  14. jennylevi

    I will have to start saving money for this collection. I like all of the eyeshadow quads hopefully these colors in person would look better than in the photos. Just a question for you guys. I was wondering from the new collection that is out recently (colour craft) is it too much glitter in the product? Iam debating whether to get something from that collection since I bought all of the Grand Duo’s I was thinking that the mineralized skinfinishes would look alike

  15. ElleryAllison

    I am going to limit my self to just buying very unique things.
    Like the orange liner, that’s awesome, and maybe two pigments and reflects rust glitter.
    I don’t really think I NEED any more eyeshadows.
    Let’s hope the same thinking applies when I actually get to MAC.

  16. hello violet trance!

    i’m porbably gonna get:
    haunting eyeshadow
    push the edge pigment
    violet trance
    noteable blush

    golly, my poor pockets!

  17. PrincessJodie

    uhoh theres tonnes of this collection i want im so looking forward to this roll on this collection!!
    although that being said i was super excited about colour craft and i felt disappointed cause alot of the msfs and such did not show up on my nc15 skin or looked just randomly werid i got a couple of things from colour craft but not as much as my purse had expected hehe

  18. Kaitlyn

    When does this collection come out internationally?? My wallet is going to be empty :)

  19. does anyone know how bright fuschia pigment compares with brash and bold pigment?

  20. aisha

    I am after the green Quad heheheheee rest can wait :)

  21. JustBe

    MAC is clever with re-releasing old items. I just bought Heritage Rouge pigment at a CCO.

  22. Laerke

    I will get Notoriety and In The Gallery Quad as well as The Perfect Cheek Blush, lovely :-)

  23. Lola

    Love the quads. I want them all!!!! Also, the gorgeous “Push the Edge” pigment.

  24. Mattea

    Oh gosh, this is bad. This is horribly bad. I want it all D: I’m so going broke when this collection comes out. I’m going to have to save up loads so that I can actually buy as much as I want. Gah. I shouldn’t have looked.

  25. daisy

    i want :
    notoriety quad
    full tilt lipstick
    young thing lipglass
    new thing lipglass
    cocomotion pigment

  26. Lindsey

    will i sound crazy if i want to get a backup of cocomotion pigment? because everyone says the jars last forever, but i want a backup, is that crazy?

  27. Lis

    When does this come out

  28. Michelle

    As of this moment i want all three quads and the two blushes yikes that is quite a bill. Thankfully i don’t need any of the super bright liners or shadows nor pigments

  29. Mona2224

    Eyeliners look amazing! for sure im getting them all!!!!!!

  30. Marchella

    I want perfect cheek blush, purple shower,artistic license and maybe push the edge pigment. I’m not too excited about the quads: in the gallery and notoriety look like the most of the mac colors that are already out but then again im only basing it on the photos i’ll have to check it out in person

  31. Elise

    Got to test some of these this weekend. Love the satin eyeshadows! Both the Photorealism and In the Gallery quads are nice. Lots of potential looks there. :) Fun Fun Fun!

  32. Vivi

    Wow. Am I the only one who thinks that she’s really gonna like High Strung?

  33. I want the photo realism quad (have like no green shadows!)

    and I aaaaam constantly staring at those liners! only liners I own are dark brown, black, pink, white, and blue.

    I’d like to have the purple and I would want the green if it were darker, too limey for me.

  34. I thought this looked completely crap until I scrolled to that violet eyeshadow. I want those brights <3

  35. VJNS

    OH MY!!!! OH MY!!! I love these. I can’t even look at other brands. MAC’s gone wild this summer with color. I’m seriously considering taking out a loan. I wish I hadn’t let my cosmetology license expire.

    • Dusty

      Has anyone gotten a chance to play with these yet? Most of the stuff was in at my local MAC and I tried everything but “Haunting” (they didn’t have it yet). I was surprised at the color payoff in “Violet Trance” and that’s what I’m curious about. For a matte shadow with such a deep color in the pan – I could’t get it to show up at all. Nada. Nothing. Just a little purple dust that fell right off the skin.

      The tops for me were the yellow and orange shadows (though the orange sheers down to a coppery gold – not a TRUE orange). The quads are cool but not worth much to me (each had only one color that I cared about, and not enough to buy the whole thing). The liners are probably the neatest thing in the collection – Especially since they are water-line safe! “Full of Fuchsia” looks killer with MAC’s “Stars n’ Rockets” shadow.

  36. jolenz

    Ooohh gorgeous collection. I think I would like to get:

    The Perfect Check Blush
    Young Thing, On Display & Personal Taste Lipglass (glosses are almost always a sure thing purchase for me)
    High Strung & Lovin’ It Lipstick
    Maira’s Magic, Violet Trance & Purple Shower eye shadow
    Notoriety & In the Gallery Quad (Yay!!!)
    Graphblack & Full of Fuchsia Liners
    Heritage Rouge, Cocomotion & Push the Edge Pigments

    I think that’s it! I already feel broke just listing out the items I’m thinking of getting! Whew!

  37. My Local MAC store is having a preview of this on Tuesday. Here’s what I’m getting:

    Lipglasses-all of them
    Lipsticks-FullBody, FrontLit and Lovin It
    E/S-Violet Trance and Off the Page
    Blush-The Perfect Cheek Blush
    E/L-Artistic License, Full of Fushsia and Obviously Orange
    Pigment-Push The Eedge and Cocomotion
    Glitter-Fushia, Copper and Gold and the gloss texture.
    Then I’m broke until next pay period, hehehe.

    Thanks Temptalia and Christine!

  38. hibz

    OH MY GOD everything looks so good….i love the shadows and the quads and the liners!!!! i am so happy i am going ot the mac party this tuesday and i will get the stuff i want before it comes out YAAAYY!

  39. Steff

    Hi ladies, fyi… the cocomotion pigment was at my CCO, I just picked it up Tuesday. I think the only quad I want is Notoriety. The other two don’t have any variety, I mean, who really wants a quad with just greens, or one w/ just purples.

  40. yourshar0na

    wow! On Display looks amazing.. reminds me of a Style Maker lip glass from the Stylistics collection, which I miss dearly…I can’t wait! =)

  41. Bindi

    soooo looking forward to this!
    I want the blue technakohl!

    the quads look amazing, also :)

  42. niknik

    Violet Trance is soooo pigmented in person!
    If I was daring enough I would have bought it.
    I got the Photorealism quad, and DAMN is it ever beautiful.
    My MAC store held a launching party for this so we got it a week early.

  43. Brightness

    Okay….Photo Realism quad is just sick, I’d buy dupes of that one!

  44. Tattoo Girl

    I had such a great time last night! My store was already sold out of all of the pencils by the time I got there. I picked up a few eyeshadows which I recycled for them. The quads were really nice. I have so many purples and greens though that I skipped them. There was only one color in the green quad that I really wanted. All of the pigments and glitters are amazing! I skipped all the l/s and l/g becuase I don’t wear them that much but I may have to go back and get Hold the Pose l/s and On Display l/g. Maybe!

  45. I’m so going to be semi-broke from this collection.

  46. Hannah

    i loveee the eyeliners,
    im gonna call my mac to see the exact date when it comes out
    b/c mac always changes the date lol

  47. Jenny

    My local Nordstroms had a launch event this weekend and I was able to purchase items from the collection. even though it is not officially out yet. I loved it!

  48. Nadia

    i can’t wait to see swatches!

  49. Mahua Dutta
