    OMG!!! I love these!!! I’m practically new to MAC and I love everything I have bought! I need these!!!!!!!

  2. erica

    I love this collection!
    does anyone else notice on the right side of that very 1st picture it looks like they have leopard/ zebra print makeup bags? I don’t remember hearing about MU bags being released..can anyone confirm? thanks!

  3. Alexa

    its available online now, you just have to look for it, like for the beauty powder blush look under cheeks and its there along with lustredrops

  4. Brenda

    May 20th? Odd, MAC collections usually come out on a thursday. Not that I’m complaining or anything though.

  5. Skyler

    Why weren’t those make-up bags released?! That totally makes me mad that they put those in the picture! Grr.

    Also highly, highly upset that MAC has done this to me again. I thought I had another week to save and now I have to fork over a ton of money this week instead. I even verified with them late last week about the 28th and they said yes. Morons.

    • Nathalie

      You get me a bit confused… Why can’t you wait and buy what you want on 28th? No one is obliged to run the day mac release a new collection, you know. :)

  6. viv

    aw man.. i want so many things from this collection! but why aren’t the bronzing powders listed? aren’t they part of the collection too?

  7. Miss Trendy

    its finally available on the Canadian and Pro sites… I’ll be visiting my nearest pro store on Wednesday… I need to compare bright future to bright sunshine and would prefer the vibrant grape in the pan rather than the style warrior packaging (only gonna get depotted into my palette anyway!) lol

  8. Aj

    *Sigh*. I wish vibrant grape would fall from the heavens in to my makeup bag. I can’t justify buying a “fun” color right now, but it’s sooo pretty!

  9. heather

    I’ve decided i’m not going to get anything from this collection.. I don’t even wear makeup 99 percent of the time so.. But I might get one or two of the lustre drops and maybe brave new bronze/sunsational.

  10. Brittany

    i love tinted lip conditioners, they should’ve brought atleast one of those out. the lipglasses look pretty cool tho so ima get one or teo of those if ive got the money. maybe just maybe will i consider a beauty powder, the rest isnt really appealing. but thts just me :O)

  11. 1cig

    so the 3rd and 4th eyeshadows are Soft Force and Bright Future? They look fantastic!

  12. 1cig

    Ok, another (slightly crazy) question… do you think Soft Force is to gold what Electra is to silver? If not, are there any that you think are?

  13. This collection is going to get me big time! I’m happy that they are released on the 20th in stores.

  14. Faheema

    Wowwee I’m in love. I actually want everything :O

  15. Rose

    i need to know if any of the items are permanent!

  16. Brian

    OMG I LOVE this collection i saw it at my mac makeup counter & I LOVE IT!!! I am getting one of everything from this collect when it come out nect thursday!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!

  17. Silk

    omg….love the packaging!!! It’s soo funny how they put the products in the box. Like…for example, if you get a lipglass with a leopard print…it will come in a zebra print box, vice versa.

    Brave New Bronze is a must have in this collection if you want a perfect nude color!!

    The only non-counter MAC store near me, ran out of Brave New Bronze l/s so I had to run over to the Nordstrom to pick it up…they almost ran out too!!!

  18. Amber

    I think I am going to go crazy on this collection..especially the lipsticks and glosses.

  19. yaya

    how weird i went to mac counter in Macy lakewood ca on friday da 22 to buy some eyeshadow n dey didnt sell it yet :(

  20. catmeow

    Violet Fire formula should have been called Frost, not Cream.

    Lustre drops are fantastic !

  21. Brightness

    The counter here didn’t have it displayed until later, too. I kept checking everyday. I picked up the Soft Force & Bright Yellow.

    I need to see some swatch comparisons because I thought Night Manoeuvres reminded me of Showstopper. I liked two of the solar bits but couldn’t decide if they were close to the Pearlizers or other LE pigments that were previously released?

  22. Kelly

    omfg. LOL I haven’t even went to the Mac counter yet to get these! AHH im so late.
    I heard that Cherish lipstick is very similar to Brave New Bronze and i can’t decide which one to get!!! Help?! Im an NC35.

  23. JO

    is brave new bronze anything like Touch?

  24. Karla

    I need a good nude lipstick… I only have funky bright colors. like morange, violetta, and blast o blue. lol. Brave new bronze looks lovely for my NW20 skin tone :)

  25. I love brave new bronze lippies. I got 2.

  26. Beatrice


    I like the look in the second picture

    can u guys tell me which cosmetics from this collection were used
    to acheive that??? Thanks!!

  27. brittany

    I got sunsational and paired it with liberated.. so beautiful if you like neutral with yellow undertone… very simple … and nice if you want dramatic makeup with simple lips! yay my first purchase from a collection! love the packaging
