  1. Very interested in the blushes and a bit interested in the skinfinishes :)

  2. ashley

    wow SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!!!!! i love the MSFs from BBR- def picking up backups!

  3. Becca

    I love how the MES sound!!!!

  4. Courtney


    Yeah, that’s pretty much how I feel about what I’m reading. I’ll still at least take a look.

  5. Marieke

    This sounds really good!

  6. Lilly

    I am getting my hands on both MSFs, I was hoping MAC will bring the back, yeahhh!

  7. Mariella

    I missed out on the Blonde, Brunette, Redhead MSFs and at finally I’ll be able to get the 2 that I really liked the look of.

  8. pLebiitah

    Interested in “Sweet Sunrise” & “Fresh Honey” MSF’s get’s me very excited but they are out of my budget.. D=

  9. Nice

    Why repromote the bbr msf’s? they suck, so crazy glittery

    • Lark

      Some of us like that. It’s a great look for night life, a lot of fun! And for summer some shimmer is pretty in heat and strong light.

  10. nickki

    MAC is goin 2 have everybody broke wit all these collections, smh

    • Amy

      Yeah, uninformed consumers. Have you been reading the reviews for these collections? Every single one is a massive failure.

      • divinem (Melissa)

        I agree. This year has been a dismal failure for MAC (for the most part).

        • Gillian

          I have to sift through all the duds to get a decent product from them lately. MAC me over has been the only collection that had some mediocre to decent products worth buying. Whoever was on the team when Heatherette came out needs to come back. Quality over quantity guys, hasn’t years of marketing told you that?…

  11. need the msfs and blushes!!!!!!! im in love!!!!

  12. Devi

    Ooh, new brush?

    So of the four collections that have been announced, this seems like the one to look at… nothing too eye-catching, but I’ll wait until reviews and swatches come out..

  13. Kat

    I think Redhead and Fresh Honey will be coming home with me for sure…they sound gorgeous!

  14. Every time MAC comes out with a so-called ‘natural’ or ‘neutral’ collection, I’m dying for repromotes of the N collection, especially the lipsticks. Disappointed! Does anybody else think MAC has got a bit lazy with some of its product descriptions. ‘Neutral pink’? ‘Blue pink’? ‘Muted brown’? That doesn’t give me much to go on!

  15. Maggie

    OMG!!! Redhead MSF!

  16. I need both of the MSFs in my life. Oh yes!

  17. Jasmin

    This in the only winter collection that has grabbed my attention. Im interested in the msfs, mineralize blushes, one lipglass and of course the new brush. I need to start saving now!(:

  18. Marina

    Probably my favorite of the collections Christine posted today. I totally missed the Blonde Brunette Redhead collection so I definitely want to check out those MSFs! I’m blonde but the Redhead MSF sounds so much prettier! Never used mineralize shadows before but Twilight Falls and Summer Haze sound pretty! Wonder what the 286 looks like…. :)

  19. alison

    Blonde is my HG MSF. I have several others and only Petticoat comes even remotely close.

    I’m a redhead now, so I may pick that MSF up too. :)

  20. Emily

    …and there goes all my Christmas money

  21. Jenny

    I wonder why they are repromoting the Redhead and Blonde MSF and not Brunette? The eyeshadows sound nice though, especially Twilight Falls.

  22. Nina

    I didn’t get to pick up Redhead when it was first released; I wonder how the formula will be? The recent repromotes have been much softer and creamier in texture but not as pretty in the pan lol.

  23. Ester

    This is the MAC winter collection I’m probably most excited for!!

  24. Sara

    Double :( now I really have to save up! Darn you Mac lol!

  25. Daniela

    Oooh MSFs!! Thank you MAC :)

  26. Natalie

    I’ve been on a makeup-buying ban for ages now for several reasons, but mainly because I have so much and feel like I don’t get enough use out of it. This is definitely going to be my ban breaker! At least I can start saving from now so it won’t be a bank breaker, too!

  27. Argghhh the eyeshadows are just going to kill me!!! they all sound amazing!! Excited for the MSFs too.

  28. Cindy

    I can’t wait! I want almost everything _o-

  29. Gretchen

    Are the mineral eyeshadows REALLY $23.50?? They can’t have increased the price by more than $3 in six months. Is that the info MAC gave you?

  30. Adrianna Mendez

    yay! can’t wait!!

  31. I like the sound of the lipsticks and the lipglasses but The Wee Coquette AGAIN?! They have repromoted this 2 times in the last year (Tartan Tale and MAC Me Over). It is a decent shade but can’t they repromote something new that is a cult favorite that people are looking for?

  32. Sophie

    so excited for this collection the most!
    i’m pretty sure that i’m gonna get most of the things in this collection! i just hope it doesn’t have limited edition packaging, as it tends to look tacky. :/

  33. Lisa

    how much are the mineralize blushes?

  34. MakeupJukiee

    Sounds like an exciting collection! Super interested in the MSF’s and Lipsticks

  35. Karen

    Oooh, this is right up my alley!

  36. Daphne

    These articles are useless without pictures.

  37. Marie

    The sound of this collection just turns me on lol, The blushes, lipsticks, and eyeshadows OMG!! I PRAY this collection is not a “product” let down…I hope everything im interested in gets an A+ for final grade by Temptalia =)

  38. Mel

    I’m interested in the last two blushes, and the hot spell Lipglass

  39. Anne

    The Wee Coquette again! Makes me wonder whether they never get rid of ’em and have to push them again and again just because of the first lot still hanging around! I have Pillow Talk and it is a Cremesheen FYI.

  40. Becca

    I want all the blushes and msfs and maybe a lipstick or two :) that’s actually good because I only want like 3 things from all of the other collections

  41. Lark

    Sounds so pretty! Like a day in the country, or chilling in the back yard on Sunday afternoon. I want that gold on gold mineralized shadow.

  42. Corliss

    I’ll take 2 lipsticks, 2 lipglasses, and 2 mineralized eyeshadows. Mac stop taking my money.

  43. ashley

    Already have redhead msf but will be picking up blonde to complete my bbr msfs! the two peach coloured msf blushes sound great too and I cant wait to see what the new brush looks like! havent been this excited since Colour craft 09! Hahaha! the eyeshadows seem lovely too, may pick a couple up if the formulation is nice. God darnit MAC for making my wallet empty!

  44. mary ellen

    will this collection have special packaging, and when will the swatches be posted?

  45. Michelle

    Am I the only one more excited for the lippies?!?! I could take or leave the MSFs lol

  46. Mimi

    redhead, 286 brush and beach sand! so ready

  47. Nina

    Even more mineral eyeshadows ??

    I am interested in the blushes and the eyeshadow that seems like purple & gold but I´m not sure – they never look the same on the eye as in the pan :(

  48. alison

    definitely picking up redhead. tempted to get a backup blonde, because i never touch mine now, afraid i’ll use it (even though, isn’t that what i bought it for? it’s just SO PERFECT!).

    the apricot blush looks lovely, and i’m a sucker for pinky-peaches. MESs look beautiful in the pan, but i’ll wait for swatches.

    i’ll try on the lipsticks and glosses before buying. i love colors like this, but i’ve learned that i really need to see them on me before i know if it’s a good investment!

  49. Reese

    So I will be grabbing all 4 lipsticks for sure!!!!! And at least 1 blush! I love this collection, and it’s about time I’ve been excited by something MAC’s put out.

  50. Michelle

    I’m so so excited. Any idea when you will swatch and review these? There goes my Christmas cash :/

  51. Maggie

    What’s this… I’m actually excited for a MAC collection?? It’s been quite a while since I’ve found myself anticipating a new collection release. I can’t wait!! =D

  52. Pamela M

    Finally a collection Im actually interested in and it only took a year lol. I want three of the lipsticks and one msf. Yay excited for 2012!!!!!

  53. Cindy

    I have to buy al the blushes and msf’s, needz. And maybe also one or two lipsticks and mineralize eyeshadows.. I have to save up, damn you MAC :(

  54. Laura

    Must get Blonde MSF!!!! I wasnt into MAC last time it was released and its gorgeous!

  55. cyndi

    the lipsticks look stunning!

  56. Sexy Sadie

    Nothing interesting.

  57. Roslyn

    I just want the brush!

  58. Hillary

    Redhead will be mine this time (Being that…I am one).

  59. Karla

    mac is kinda starting to come back

  60. Roxanne

    I’ve been looking forward to the release photos of this since hearing about it. Thanks Christine for keeping us up to date!

    Def getting all of the Mineralize blushes and the Redhead MSF 😉

  61. Jen

    definitely interested in Hot Spell!!!

  62. Michelle

    Hah, I want every single one of these!

  63. Alyssa

    The Wee Coquette is UGLY. Stop releasing it!!

  64. This sounds right up my street! Can’t wait to take a look in person :)

  65. Is it bad that I want ALL of the lipsticks?

  66. Finally! A MAC collection that I actually like and one that is on my birthday! xD

  67. mary ellen

    there it goes again (my christmas money)!!! for sure going to be broke after this

  68. Ester

    Now that I’ve seen the pictures I’m only interested in Redhead MSF, unless one of the mineralized eyeshadows has an amazing swatch later on.

  69. Zannate

    they need to stop it with the minerilize things! the skin finishes are nice but the blushes+eyeshadows suck!

  70. Maud

    all mine- most lipsticks, most lip glasses and both MSFs haven’t been this excite in a while i am so happy for this and irish apfel :)

  71. Nancy

    This is MY collection, natural.. I can’t wait!! All the lipsticks, MSF’s, and mineralize blushes!! :)

  72. divinem (Melissa)

    I’m digging those lip glasses. Will have to see swatches before I’ll commit to anything. MAC has been boring me lately.

  73. Tracy

    I absolutely cannot wait for all of these releases on January 5th… Definitely going to break the bank…Oh man.

  74. Christina

    So excited for this collection!

  75. Dayna

    Eh, nice shades but mostly everything seems dupable. More neutrals, mac just doesnt suprise me anymore. So many of the collections have had some terrible products in them.

  76. rachel

    This is the only collection I’ve been interested in all year! Cannot wait! I hope it doesn’t suck in quality:/

  77. Does anyone else thin the “natural” spin is complete BS?

  78. Milly

    This is definitely my kind of collection! I’m interested in the Redhead MSF and Fresh Honey Mineralize Blush.

  79. Nicole

    I think I am going to check out the lipsticks and glosses. My skin skin doesn’t like the mineralized products.

    • Liseth

      I have the same problem with MSFs I just recently bought MSF in Lightscapade and I started to notice that it was causing me black heads around my cheekbones and close to my eyes, mineralized products are not a good option for everyones skin, that’s why I´m passing from the mineralizes blushes and MSF V.V

  80. veronica

    Hi Christine! When will you have swatches up? I’m interested in the blushes and lipsticks. I love checking out your swatches before buying since are skin tone is somewhat similar.

  81. Emma

    I’m so excited to see Blonde and Redhead being repromoted!! What an exciting New Year’s surprise!

  82. Cait

    These are the colours I love. Thank god I will have money from Christmas <3

  83. Karla

    finally a collection im interested in

  84. Corliss

    I have the MSF’s I’m buying everything else. I love this collection.

  85. Zozolina

    I like it so much! I hope the quality is good.

  86. Lilinah

    I just tested these yesterday.

    OMG! the mineralize eyeshadows are everything they should ever have been but haven’t. I cannot vouch for how long they will last, but they feel smooth and almost creamy, the colors actually ARE multidimensional (always the hype, but true this time), and the color payoff is great. I wanted them all, but that would be a bit outside my budget.

    I already have enough nude and nearly nude lipsticks, but this small collection of four actually manages to cover so many potential nudes – cool pink nude, neutral nude, warm peach nude, deep tan nude – i suspect these will FLY out of the store.

    I didn’t test the glosses, but they coordinate so well with the lipsticks, i suspect these are gonna move fast, too…

    I have more blushes than i can ever use (i rarely wear blush), so i didn’t pre-order any, but the 3 colors – cool pink, warm pink, and apricot – have a lot of potential. If you have a light hand, they will work on the pale and fair, and they are buildable for those who like more color.

    I didn’t bother to test the two MSF’s – i just pre-ordered both (:-} blush)

    This collection is really fabulous and wearable by almost everyone, and anyone who wants a change from all the bright reds, oranges, and fuchsias out there right now should find products to love.

  87. MichelleChefNYC

    I was hoping this would be more like the N Collection that came out a few years back… I am SO done with MAC’s mineralize eyeshadows… the lip products and MSF’s are something to look forward to, but I was hoping to see a repromote of Remotely Grey and some of the other N Collections shadows that haven’t made it back (why Nanogold is the color that comes back again and again is beyond me, there were so many pretty shades in that collection)

  88. beck

    I wish they had some lip conditioners coming out like last years “Warm & Cozy?” collection. The mineralize eyeshadows are starting to bug me, they keep coming out over and over. They look so beautiful, you want to buy them but once you get them they are a let down. Can we get Veluxe Pearls in place of those hah.

  89. Elisa

    I’m in love with this collection. I need one of everything.

  90. victoria

    Finally a decent collection from MAC, can’t wait for your swatches and reviews 😀

  91. Kat Santi

    Wow! I can’t wait for thee lipsticks to be available!

    Can anyone tell me what are the names of the shades (the leftmost and rightmost)on the photo posted?

    I want to get “A perfect day” or “sweet sunrise”. I want the leftmost shade on the photo but I might get the wrong name since I’ll only get it via online..

    A reply would really help me a lot from buying the wrong shade…

    Thanks much! I love this site :)

  92. mary ellen

    please post the swatches! im trying to organize what to buy with my christmas money (already, i know) and i need to see the swatches!!

  93. margarita

    I can’t wait for this collection! Christine, will you have swatches?

  94. definitely interested in blonde msf a perfect day lipstick and in the sun ms, waiting for your swatches as to whether I get more from this collection. I think Mac are starting the year weel with Daphne Guiness, this collection and Iris Apfel. Theres some things from all collections I’m going to get whereas the collections in the fall I felt a bit ‘meh’ about and found it hard finding anything I actually wanted from them.

  95. After long time I am interested in some collection. Liking the Blushes…I had those MSFs…but broke the redhead…:(

  96. eye shadows and lipsticks are interesting!! can’t wait!

  97. Lark

    OMG! This is the fifth collection in two weeks? Or number six, I missed something?

    Very, very pretty, but five releases in two weeks? And why is it that the MSFs and beauty powders are the thing you want?

  98. Karla

    Mac is killing my wallet all the collections keep coming out and i just got invited to a launch party for the end of the month. I better start saving

  99. manisha

    Hey i wanted to know if Velvet teddy lipstick is similar to ”A perfect Day” on the lips! (: please reply thanks ! So excited for this collection

  100. Ron

    Hi, do you know where i can find the face charts for this collection. Mac dont seem to post them anymore on their site. Any idea why?
