  1. Kathleen

    I can’t wait…I CAN’T WAIT!

  2. Liz

    I like the eyeshadows!!

  3. Megan

    Im feelin’ this collection!! I can’t wait…thanks for the photos Christine

  4. Bananarchy

    I am so not in love with this collection. Me and my pocket book are thrilled!

    • Mary

      omg me neither…like…the packaging seems really tacky and the colors are not very thrilling either. maybe the eyeshadows…and brave new bronze. but definitely not somethin THAT big

      • Shweta

        I agree , I don’t find it that exciting. I’m getting over my MAC Packaging craze so I am resisting stiff based plainly on that. I’m gonna skip this one too.

        • Wendy

          yeah!!! im not feeling the collection neither.. i saw it last week.. n was not so thrill about it…

  5. Kathleen

    I can’t stop staring at these photos Christine!!

  6. Mikki

    I’m soooo need to have this whole collection…. OMG…

  7. reesa

    I am excited about this collection. These colors are right up my alley! :-) Thanks, Christine.

  8. Wilcoa

    Ya know, I’m not sure there’s much I want… except for maybe a blush, bronzer, lustre drops, and one or two lippies ;P

  9. binnie

    yikes this collection seems just as big as the hello kitty and all the items look lovely X

  10. Madeleine

    I’d like to try Lustre Drops.
    What colour would be the most suitable for pink undertone?

  11. Brie

    This collection looks like it is geared towards warmer skin tones, none of these colors will work on me and I’m actually totally pleased about that!

    I am drawn to the lustre drops though, I’m going to have to wait and see that stuff swatched but it looks like something I’d actually use!

  12. sharon

    oh myyy … that purple nailpolish looks amaizing 😀

    i loveeee animal print :D:D:D:D:D cant wait!!

    • letthembleed

      That purple looks exactly like varicose violet. In fact all three of those polish colors look exactly like the ones I already have. Mercenary looks like Silverstruck from the awesomest of awesome collection, Cult Of Cherry, and Peaceable very much looks like Seasonal Peach. I’m hoping to be wrong when I see it in person, but MAC is known for re-releasing colors. I want to know what that tube of yellow GOLD is in the first photo. Is that a lipglass, a liquid eyeliner, a liquid eyeshadow, a paint stick…..What is it?

  13. What the heck are Luster Drops? A liquid highlighter? I want all the eyeshadows, lol

  14. OMG I cannot wait for this collection! The colors are so beautiful!

  15. Ruth

    I can’t wait for this to come out, so many lemmings.

  16. I want to know what the second model is wearing on her lips! It is the only thing I’m interested in.

  17. lala

    I can’t wait!! Thanks Xtine! <3

  18. diana

    i hate the apckaging but that’s just because i am not into the whole anumal prints anyway i do want to get a bronzer and maybe a blush but definitely getting that yellow eyeshadow :)

  19. viv

    this is such an exciting collection! can’t wait!

  20. Chloe

    I might just get Vibrant Grape eyeshadow…not thrilled by this collection cos I don’t like the packaging for once!

  21. That second promo pic is to die for! It’s so editorial, but the eyes and lips and cheeks – everything! is so gorgeous!! O_O

  22. Shanel

    one question:
    the skin sheen leg spray, does it have coverage for flaws or
    does it gives a silky shiny look?

  23. so beautiful this collection!

  24. P

    Wow… I love MAC and all… but this collection is ugleeeeeeee. The designs on the casing are even ugly. Thank goodness I won’t have to drop any money on this!

  25. cameesa

    ooo, what lipstick/lipglass is she wearing in the first pic? soooo nice!

  26. geri~

    I am really attracted to this collection! drools… =)

  27. I really want to try one of the lustre drops!

  28. MissNice

    Christine do u have any pictures of the color craft collection

  29. iliang

    I could safely pass on this collection..colour craft is another story..

  30. Celina

    What are the skinsheens? Are they colour or is it like a bronze-ish shimmer golden gleam type thing, i wish it were the bronzing glimmer type thing.

    • Mary

      A skinsheen is a spray tan for your legs,but i use it all over with the brush that came with the collection last summer (I forgot the number sorryyy!) They are more of a mousse than a spray.

  31. Ricci

    Wow I want!!

  32. Caesara

    Are Solarbits like pigments, or am I way off the mark here? :)

  33. Mel

    I love those eyeshadows!!! The purples and golds make me excited for the summer trends. The lustre drops are interesting. All of the shadows will be mine!

  34. Melissa

    so so pretty but not sure if i really need anything… i have eversun blush from a previous collection… :(oh well …

  35. Ke

    I wanted some more information on that ebay seller who has MAC products before they are officially released…anyone know?

    • Lauren

      I’m not sure which ebay seller you mean, but I have bought from one seller named my boo kitty who already has rose romance- she got it in last week- and she has already shipped me the products. I buy from her alot so she is reliable. Also try VIP cosmetics- she has a store as well, not as many products, but a good selection of discontinued items that i had trouble finding. hope that helps.

      • deidra

        Unfortunately this seller won’t sell to me because I’m new to Ebay. I have no desire to build up transactions elsewhere just to be able to buy from her. Too bad because she does have a great selection and seems to be trusted to sell authentic items. Thanks for the tip though. It was useful.

  36. evangelia

    i like the plummy blush but not sure how it would look on me….

  37. evangelia

    christine, you wouldn’t happen to know the e/s finishes?

  38. Anni

    What are the lustre drops for ? (Im a new on makeup)

  39. Tamara

    I want all of the lustre drops! I’m all for shimmery glowing skin! I also love the eyeshadows!

  40. kt

    A lot of pretty colors, not digging the packaging so much though.

  41. Jenny

    The promo pics look fierce… but I hate the packaging :(

  42. Im excited for this collection! It’s fierce! Curious to see how the Violet Fire nail polish turn out.

  43. Morna

    Gaaaaah, it’s been such a long time since I’ve actually been excited about a MAC collection – and their packaging!
    The lipglasses look amazing. *Must….get….fierce and fabulous…*

  44. MAG

    i am so excited i have a count down till this released on my blackberry i will be getting….all the solar bits, and definately all the lustre drops those are my must have since i have way too many nuetral eyeshadows but night manurvers and light force look so appealing and then the peasceable polish….i may go for that too!

  45. sophie

    hey i cant wait for this collection the packaging is so cute , i wont be buying much from this collection tough probbly just the lipstick sunsatation its looks a good peach nude . betta start saving up 😛

  46. ohsifodfji

    I LUV this…. i just hope they dont sell out fast at my mac..

  47. Jenny

    This collection is amazing!! I guess this is where all my money will be going.

  48. Nic15

    i”m really diggin the eyeshadows for this launch. the grape & bright future look fun, Solar Force also looks like it could be a great highlighter for the browbone. can’t wait to swatch these.

  49. Shyradynne

    Yay, i love the packaging!
    this comes out after my birthday so hopefully i’ll have money to buy some stuff, i love the eyeshadows!

  50. Kaylabella

    I basically want EVERYTHING! I have to keep saving up for sure.

  51. April

    Meh, i dont like any of the lip stuff, some of the eyeshadows look OK but nothing exciting…they arent promoting my refined deeper bronze with this collection!

  52. Mary


  53. Dawn

    I LOVE the lips on both models. And I really want whatever eyeshadows the second model is wearing. That’s so hot!

  54. jasmine

    are solar bits like pigment

  55. Amazing collection! I love all the packing and specially eyeshadows collection…….

  56. jodie

    i love ths collection i have to hv the purple nail polish its gunna be big

  57. Lizzy

    They brought back some odd things from last year! Solar Bits are great, but some of those bronzer colors were overpowering.

    I want that puple nail polish though! Violet Fire. And the shadows look sweet although the packaging is a strange color contrast, won’t know until I see them. And… MORE Solar Bits. Love them!

  58. When does the come out??

  59. Dominique

    I HATE the packaging!

  60. Catherine

    Looks so good :-) Can’t wait for detailed product descriptions – especially on the Lustre Drops and Skinsheens! Thanks for this!

  61. Can anyone tell me what the lustre drops are? The colors look so pretty but I have no idea what it is. Thank you

  62. SweetMang0

    Christine, do you know the cost of the Lustre Drops?

  63. Allie

    I seem to be in the minority! I hate everything!! After I bought pretty much all of Hello Kitty and Sugarsweet, I finally get a chance to recover! Except for the Violet fire nailpolish.All these colors would look horrible on my very fair skin. I like Rose Romance much much more.

    • Ydania

      its because it’ll be the summertime and the bronzy looks are def. in .. hmmm i have fair skin girls who look great in these kind of colors… put yu get to pull off the oh so sexy ‘sun kissed’ look =]

  64. Anjel

    Christine I am so looking forward to this collection!? But!!! I have the most off subject question….Do you have any idea where I could even remotely start to look for those earrings in the picture????

  65. Holly..

    The packaging looks gawjuss… but i already have lots of the colours in my pro palette =( im looking forward to the purple polish and the lipsticks though !! Yay!…x

  66. Meg

    mehhrrr i dunno if i’m loving this…i like some things, but i don’t feel compelled to get a lot. i’m sure that will change when i see it in person!

  67. Mara

    Do you think Bright Future is anything like Bright Sunshine, or is it a bit more orange-y? It looks so beautiful in the picture!

    I definitely want to check out Eversun and try the Lustre Drops!

  68. Amanda

    I was told by my fav. MAC MA today that this collection will have bags to. Theres a bigger makeup bag in leopard and a smaller more purse size one in zebra according to what she said. I dont know if this is true or if this info. is correct but figured I’d share with all you fellow makeup junkies :)

  69. Honey

    Not to very excited for this collection, im just getting the brown shaded nail polish,and lipstick sunsation.

  70. Honey

    I just read a comment by idk who, but that this collection will be giving out special print bags, instead of the same ol’ MAC bags, please someone comment mine and tell this is true?

  71. Summer

    This collection dont have alot goin on but i like somethings but rele not much! I like brave new bronze and vibrant grape and pink rebel luster drops and peaceable nail polish and maybe fierce & fabulous lipglass! Thats it rele!

  72. *lisa*

    *must* have!

  73. Omigosh!!!! Yea the packaging isn’t my fave, but i want Eversun, and all the bronze pigment things….oh and vibrant grape and bright future!!

  74. Violet

    I just got my invite. I cannot wait for the launch!!!!! *yay!*

  75. Chloe

    I may just get Vibrant Grape and another eyeshadow. But this collection is really growing on me! I can’t wait to see what the packaging looks like!

  76. I want, I want those es/blushes and lippsticks. So fierce.

  77. letthembleed

    I want to know what that tube of yellow GOLD is in the first photo. Is that a lipglass, a liquid eyeliner, a liquid eyeshadow, a paint stick…..What is it?

    That purple looks exactly like varicose violet. In fact all three of those polish colors look exactly like the ones I already have. Mercenary looks like Silverstruck from the awesomest of awesome collection, Cult Of Cherry, and Peaceable very much looks like Seasonal Peach. I’m hoping to be wrong when I see it in person, but MAC is known for re-releasing colors.

  78. Bibi

    Gosh I’m so excited! My MAC store is having a pre release of the Style Warrior and I just RSVP for it It’s on the 12th. I got some of the eyeshadows already but im a brush addict so i know i’m get the brush and the nail polish some eye shadow oh gosh i’m so exicted i’ll let you guys know after i go
    thanks much

  79. Ydania

    Cant wait for this .. im serious getting overpriced for eversun … one of my fav blushes ever ! .. and im going to seriously stock up .. PLUS the packaging is awesome =]

  80. charmed

    cant waittttttttttttttttt, when will it be on sale exactly in Europe?

  81. Estefania

    what’s luster drops?? :S

  82. Kayella

    I just got my invite to the pre-release party at my MAC…I’m super excited, all these products look amazing!

  83. caprig

    What do you think that greenish color is on her eyes? I am not finding it anywhere in the listings for the products on this release. I just LOVE that color. This collection is SCREAMING my name. :)

    • To be honest, I have no idea, but it might be a combination of the yellow eyeshadow overlayed with the brown. The colors are clearly altered, since the yellow isn’t that dark in the least bit. :/

      • letthembleed

        There is only one way they could have made that yellow look that way, and that is with Hot + Sour Paint which, of course is no longer available. I have two tubes and LOVE it so I know that is what they had to use. I think it is crappy for them to show a photo using items that are unattainable! Just Plain Wrong!

  84. lexi

    do we know which finishes the e/s are yet? i’m wondering which finish night maneuvers is.

  85. Reana

    is it just me or does this collection remind anyone of Neo Sci Fi from last summer? the colors anyway…does anyone know if we get our PRO discount on these products????

    • caprig

      I sure hope so. Reana. If there is no discount I know a lot of people will be mad.

      I did manage to figure out what to use for duplicating the 2nd photo, btw. Nightlight, Bronzescape, and MAC pro gold metal (or gold yellow) pigments with a touch of vanilla or frost under the brow.

  86. Farrow

    Howdy, Christine & all fellow Mac-Snack-ers;

    Can anyone verify the following? A lovely woman told me that someone high-up in Mac’s org. told HER that the company’s made the following official decision, albeit perhaps it’s not yet an officially ANNOUNCED decision, lol… To wit: that the super-popular Min. Skinfinish called “Pleasantry” (which sold out quickly in its first launch) is definitely going to appear again by midsummer or so.

    So — again: can anyone verify this? Have any of you also heard this? And if so, do you know exactly WHEN this is going to happen?

  87. Cat

    Cant wait for this collection.

  88. Brie

    so you know what the scatterrays thing is.

  89. amani

    wow everytime i look at these pic it makes me sad cuz theres no way i will be able to buy all of it…..excluding the solar bits and spray tan

  90. amani

    are the designs on the bronzer compacts stickers????

  91. Kavita

    i love the feel off this collection on my chest and face!

  92. I purchased this entire collection today at a MAC Store on the peninsula. They had a party for this launch, complete with cocktails and appetizers…. I LOVE THIS COLLECTION!!

  93. Bibi

    I just came hom from the party .. fun fun fun the model was so hot food was cool drinks super cool makeup oh so purty but i think i need a closer look on some stuff i did get a couple of lipsticks and eyeshadows and i also restock on some stuff but i didn’t play too much too busy having fun talking :)

  94. anna

    I wonder what vibrant grape will look like. ive been looking for a deep, royal purple color

  95. star

    i saw this collection today! looks sooooo much better in person!!!
    i didn’t want anything at first, but i think i just changed my mind!!!

  96. Tania

    I agree with some of the previous posters. I REALLY don’t like the packaging. It looks like 80’s animal print very Duran Duran “Hungry Like the Wolf”! I was asked by peeps at the MAC counter I frequent to sign up. I’m going to encourage my mom to sign up cuz she’d be all over this. I think that the Lustre Drops are interesting and I MAY get one lipglass or lipstick because that’s what I do with every collection (excpet for Neo Sci Fi). *sigh* we shall see…

  97. There are some awesome pieces in here for bridal kits. Cant wait to see these in person.

  98. Miko

    When will this be at MAC counters? Is it still May 28? I’m trying to decide if I should order online now, or just wait until its at the counters.

  99. itsa

    Whats the lip combo on the 2nd model? a gold lipglass over a red corally lipstick?

  100. Bettina

    I saw a sneak preview of it a few days ago..I cannot wait for it now, it looks awesome. :)
