    Yesss Lightscapade!!! I rarely use my backup so now, its on ;)

    • I’m all for Lightscapade being re-promoted for others to snag it.

        I must be out of the MAC loop- Ligjtscapade was re-released last year? Lol wow apparently I’m waayy off. Im talking “back up” from the Danse collection lol. I’m hoping its as amazing in this re-released form.

  2. shelly

    WOW! must have Heroine!!!!!!!!!

  3. pLebiitah

    Reel Sexy & Pink Popcorn HAVE to be mine!!! <3
    I hope Pink Popcorn it's a true lavender.. I wanted "Budding Love" from "Chen Man" but looked more pink! Gotta love my lavenders..<3

  4. Miss J

    I want my mitts on Reel Sexy, but that’s about it. Will probably check out the peach and coral glosses, but not a fan of the price.

  5. loulouhex

    Here’s hoping Heroine will be matte like Ruby Woo and crayola saturated! A girl can hope.

      Here! here! And may Moxie win the Mac By Request!

    • M

      Heroine is just a regular matte formula, not a retro matte :( It’s still a gorgeous lipstick though, in both formula and colour, so you should definitely check it out!

  6. Looks so beautiful! Wow! :D

  7. jennifer

    its weird they are bring out lights again.. im sure there are lot of other msf’s that people would love to see again?

  8. I love all these bright colours! It already makes me happy when I look at it.

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

    looks good

  10. Laura

    Watch Me Simmer again? That’s a bit weird. But I missed out the first time, so I’m happy :) haha. That and Lightscapade will be mine! I’m definitely trying to resist Pink Popcorn as I just got Budding Love. I wonder if they’ll be similar enough for me to skip it?

  11. Carla Souza

    Whatch me simmer must have been a huge success since they’re repromoting it again not even 2 months from its original release date.
    From these pictures, I want reel sexy. Il probably get a whatch me simmer back up ;)

  12. Oh dear, corals and teals, my two major weaknesses!!!

  13. OH MY GOD
    heroine. I have to get it. I have to get it. I have to get it!

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Laurence Laurence

    Lightscapade and pink cult are mineee !!

  15. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Gina Gina

    Aww I hope this isn’t *the* summer collection for this year. Surf Baby and To The Beach were so much fun, with all the summery corals and teals, and special packaging. Hopefully MAC has something more like that up their sleeve!

  16. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Cate Cate

    YES!! Lightscapade!! Getting another backup at least, possibly two. And I love the sound of Heirloom!!

  17. It’s interesting that Watch me Simmer is coming out again so soon! Also lightscapade – that was just rereleased!

  18. Hopefully Lightscapade isn’t as fail-y as last years! I had hardly any pretty veining in it at all.

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

    I want the eyeshadows: I just wish they were sold as singles, as each duo has a color I want & one that I don’t need or would never wear. I’ll probably end up with at least two…

  20. Reel Sexy Lipstick looks beautiful and excited for Lightscapade.

  21. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Devon Devoney

    Lightscapade! Heirloom! OH MY! That Matte purple lipstick looks quite promising as well.

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

    I heard Lightscapade is going to be made permanent following this collection – do you know if that’s right?

    I’m a big fan of purples and corals so I’m looking forward to this collection. I’m probably going to get 3 of the lipsticks (I already have Watch Me Simmer), at least one Cremesheen glass (the light purple one), the lavender and plum eyeliners, and *maybe* a back-up of Pink Cult because it’s a truly wonderful blush.

  23. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Kate K.C.

    Pink cult? Yes, please!!!

  24. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mandy bxboricua

    I missed out on watch me simmer & pink cult the first time so I’ll try to get them this time..I’m interested to see what the coral cremesheen glass looks like

  25. Angela

    Pink Cult is a must. I might pick it up. I still have some from the last time it came out.

  26. Samantha

    Wasn’t there a bronze lipstick in the Wonder Woman collection called Heroine? I’m confused.

    • Different finish – Heroine in WW was listed as a frost finish! It’s possible that they’re the same, but based on the finish, they appear to be different.

  27. Asma

    Its gonna be Lightscapade!

  28. Vvn

    Might have to get myself a pink cult backup, I feel like such a putz for buying it online at retail price + 1/2 now that
    It’s repromo’d >=[ too good to pass up this time around!

  29. Guess who is going to be broke when this releases?! Oh right… me! I will be calling my local Mac shops to have somebody hang on top lightscapade for me!! I will not miss out on it again!

  30. Reel Sexy… yes please. I am going to be stalking this online! Do we know if counters are getting this or just the stand alone stores?

  31. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Kelly Kelly Marie

    I wish my Lightscapade looked like this….

  32. Liv

    Heroine looks gorgeous! Unfortunately, I’m terrible at securing these limited edition things from MAC. I’m sure I’ll miss out. Do you know of any dupes?

  33. Mara

    I am so excited about this! The colors are wonderful and bright. Summer is a couple of days away here in the Philippines. :)Pink Popcorn and Watch Me Shimmer have to be mine <3

  34. Lutigs

    Christine, do you know what colour eyeshadow would go with the Hyacinch pencil?

  35. this collection is right up my ally! :)

  36. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Liz Liz

    I’m in love with the purple lipstick and gloss

  37. Marina

    Is nail lacquer back to fifteen dollars? I’ll pick one up to support!

  38. I love it, but it looks so much like stuff I already have!

  39. Hi Christine, What do you think is the close dupe for reel sexy?

  40. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Azaza Azaza

    Yes I can finally get MAC Lightscapade since I missed out on it when it was re-released last time

  41. omg, they’re amazing! i can’t wait! must have pink popcorn :)

  42. prisci

    So I was lucky enough to have gotten watch me simmer in the previous collection but not been able to wear it because it goes on patchy anyone have issues with this and if u have how have u resolve it?

  43. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of looovemac LK

    I just ordered the lipsticks, except WMS since I own 2 ;) Can’t wait!!!!

  44. Melissa

    Heroine. That is all.

  45. beck

    I will be skipping this collection, I don’t see anything that’s wowing me in particular. Maybe a teal polish, oh but wait….probably not at 15.00.

  46. I’ve been trying to get the shadow names to find out if they are new, limited or repromotes does anyone have any ideas? since it doesn’t say next tot he shadow shoudl I assume they are new colors?

  47. JeanieO

    I guess… I’ll be pretty broke this year. Looking super fierce and gorgeous but broke lol

  48. the new colors i love ,they dont have the color name under the eye shadow by mac reel sexy collection for summer. there is a pretty pale gray, thats not it name color but i like light matte grayor grey colors i like all the colors. thank you

  49. love the collection ♥

  50. Bridget

    Oh wow. I have just got to have all those eye kohl pencils, especially the lavender one. I am also eager to test out the lightscape mineralize skinfinish.

  51. Eric

    YES! Im so excited! I have been trying to find that spmsf on eBay!

  52. Sofiaaamichelle

    I just got this last yr and OMGSH fav highlighter evarrrrrsss. Going to be picking up a back up for sure! [:

  53. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Catherine Catherine

    I hope Lightscapade doesnt look all beige and icky like last year! What happened to its gorgeous blue, pink and pearl swirls? Ill keep my fingers crossed. Also gotta grab a new Pink Cult. <3

  54. Kimberly

    How’s Private Screening differ from Partial to Pink?

  55. Emily

    I bought the Force of Love lipstick since I couldn’t get my hands on Watch Me Simmer. I can’t believe they repromoed it so fast! Do you think I could do without it? Is it identical to the Force of Love lipstick?

  56. Jamie

    I love Watch Me Simmer, but I already own Force of Love. Do you think they’re close enough that I don’t need WMS, or do you think they’re different enough to justify owning both?

  57. Angela

    I’m curious about getting Lightscapade. I’m an NW45 so I usually prefer more golden highlights, like Nars Albatross. Any comments from those that may have tried this on darker skin? I’m worried it may be too pale for me and appear ashy and unflattering.


  58. Nay

    Love this… they could have totally done cute packaging though!!!!!!
