MAC To the Beach Collection is Online!

Dust off those credit cards, To the Beach has now launched online @ MACCosmetics.comBut you have to be SNEAKY.  The full, splashy page is now up on the website!   The collection may officially go live tonight or tomorrow morning… Live!  It’s up on both the U.S. and Canadian websites.

Marine Life sold out at approximately 5pm PST on the MAC website; it looks like it sold out within two to three hours.  It sold out on Tuesday afternoon on the Canadian MAC website; Tuesday morning on Nordstrom.

You can grab Marine Life @ Nordstrom! Looks like you can do a search for the full collection & they’ll all show up here.  Use code BEAUTY for $5 shipping on beauty orders of $50+.

Macy’s has now launched the To the Beach Collection! But I didn’t see Marine Life…

Free shipping code for maccosmetics.com is BEACH!

You can find all of Temptalia’s reviews, photos, swatches, must-haves, etc. etc. HERE! :)

Does anyone have as much as fun as I do guessing what will sell out? I didn’t see it coming, but Easy Lounger is sold out (on the U.S. site).  Sand & Sun is sold out, which isn’t too surprising, but I will am eager to hear the reviews on it since I had to dig into it to get any color to show up… even on a base.  Hipness is gone now as well–definitely expected–can’t believe it took so long!

    Not in Canada :(

  2. Mandi

    Christine, do you know of any free shipping codes right now?

  3. Meagan

    How funny! I had literally just checked the website and ordered Marine Life right before I saw this post! I’m so excited that I really don’t mind the shipping cost LOL.

    • LOL! It says something about how I order if I never even think about shipping codes on the MAC site since I always meet the “free shipping” threshold, LOL.

      • Jacqueline

        oh me too Christine! i dont think ive ever bought anything from maccosmetics.com without getting free shipping!! 😀

      • Meagan

        Normally I wouldn’t worry about it either but I spent the last bit of my paycheck on some new sunglasses and had to really dig for the $ to buy this before it sold out!

  4. done ordering. lol. 😀

  5. Karyn

    Ignore previous comment, doing this on my iPhone!

    I wanted to say THANK YOU so much for the psa Christine, I managed to order Marine Life & Thrills from the MAC mobile site on my iPhone. You’re a doll for the heads up!

  6. Sandra

    Good thing I was on facebook and saw your update! I went and ordered so fast I forgot to get the Sweet & Punchy eyeshadow and Flurry of Fun lipglass. Oh well, I’ll get them next time I head to the store if they still have them available! I’m trying the saving money game, not working to well…

  7. Tanisha

    I ordered the Marine Life Powder! Glad I was able to get one.

    • SusyLovesMac

      Marine Life powder SOLD OUT! I wasn’t so lucky so now I have to become the MAC store stalker..lol.


      • SusyLovesMac

  8. Allison

    yay! I just bought my items!!! thanks christine!!!

  9. Dini

    Wah. Didn’t work on the Canadian site. Why am I so impatient? Ha ha.

  10. Rissy

    😀 ORDERED! So excited!!! Thanks Christine! <3

  11. Hayley

    Christine do you suggest getting a back up for Pink Rebel or Thrills?

    • If you think you’ll use Pink Rebel a lot… maybe. If you use it for the body, I could see someone finishing, not so much if it’s for the face.

      Do you wear your lipsticks a lot? Like a back-up for me is silly, nearly all the time, but if you see yourself wearing it 1-2x a week, then sure.

  12. Audrey H.

    Splashing looks very pretty.

  13. Suri

    Thanks for the heads up, I just placed my order. Veryyy excited! :)

  14. L1onQueen

    Christine you are the best! I got everything I wanted (Marine life and Thrills) THANKS!!

  15. Sabrina

    Yay! Thank you. :) I just ordered Marine Life, Thrills, and Funbathing. I can check the rest out in person this weekend, but those were the ones I really wanted.
    Hopefully they will ship soon. I usually get mine the day after it ships and I’m feeling impatient. lol

  16. It’s not fair that us Canadians have to wait. If it comes out tomorrow then both US and Canada should get it tomorrow or both a bit early.

    • I believe the stock is different, though? so if that is the case, it does not matter, Canadians will have their own stock separated out. Do your orders typically ship out of the U.S. or from a Canadian facility? I’m not sure who maintains the websites, whether it’s one team or if there are regional/national teams, which would explain why the U.S. site has it up now and the Canadian doesn’t.

      • I’m not sure that might be the case though. My orders always come from Ontario. Sometimes if you place an order over the phone it’s possible you’d be able to get newer collection items early but not always. I guess I’ll just wait until tomorrow morning.

  17. wbwrightMakeupArtist

    WTF! I am going to cry. The MAC site does not accept out of the country credit cards. I went through the ENTIRE process, was having it all shipped to a pal and WHAMMO! No can do.

  18. Cherokee

    Thanks Christine, just placed my order and it is on it’s way. Wasn’t going to get Marine Highlife but I re-reviewed your collection overview and decided to try it. I don’t have anything like it. Also picked up Sweet and Punchy, Thrillis, and a few things from Pret A Papier.

  19. Lauren

    Made my order! Thanks for the update!

  20. pakasa87

    I LOVE U TEMPTALIA !!!!!!!!!!!!
    i got all the stuff i wanted :)
    thnk u sooo muchhhh :)

  21. PJ

    OMFG! I just placed my order! No problem meeting the free shipping threshold. Thank you so much Christine for the announcement!!! I am so excited!!! I got the bag too :)

    • LOL! You & me both, PJ! I was like, “Oh, yeah, qualified for free shipping already?!”

      • PJ

        Oh I totally forgot to ask you about Flurry of Fun. Is it like Kumquat? I fell SO hard for Kumquat because on my lips it looks bronzey, golden due to my natural lip color and not orange. So I was hoping Flurry of Fun had a similar effect because I can’t find another Kumquat!

        • Ehhh, not really. It’s more tangerine – definitely more on the orange side, I’d say, in comparison. It has the cool teal glitter, but not so much like Kumquat :(

  22. Carrie

    Thank you! I even woke up early this morning to see if it would be online today and was a little disappointed that it wasn’t. I just placed my order and got the things I was sure I wanted. I may order some other things later. Can’t wait ’til they arrive. :)

  23. I just did a bad, bad thing…

    Firecracker, Sweet & Punchy, Humid, Scorcher, Hipness, Marine Life, Thrills.

    Um, oops?

  24. Tiffany

    you. are. amazing. so happy that I was able to place my order so early before everything sells out! all thanks to you!

    • Tiffany

      I bought:
      Sand & Sun, Flurry Of Fun, Splashing, Marine Life, Shimmermoss, Beachbound, Hipness, Pink Rebel, Lazy Day, Easy Lounger, the Beach Bag, Bronze Body Oil, Sweet & Punchy, Firecracker and Humid! 😀 so excited!

  25. Ashley

    I got really excited about this even though I already pre-ordered my things at Nordstrom yesterday! I hope everybody is able to get what they want!

    I ordered:
    Lazy Day

  26. Lynn

    You can also type To the Beach on the search bar and the collection pops up!

  27. nayeli

    if i buy something online and dont like it, can i return it to a store or counter?

  28. Ledonatella

    It’s not on MAC Pro and I am not buying without my 40% off!

    • Laura

      UGH! I know! I’m in the SAME boat!!! I hope it’s online tomorrow morning? Or midnight tonight?!? Who knows! :-( Very bummed….

  29. Tess

    This post made me so happy Christine! Haha even though i’m from Canada, it’s good to know that it’ll be up soon 😉 I’ve been checking all day

  30. Milessa

    Did anyone notice that the picture of Marine Life is posted without the overspray on it. Thought that was funny…although the overspray doesn’t sway me one way or the other. I like it regardless. :)

  31. Wendy

    I’ve been checking MAC’s site every hour today! LOL
    I got my order in!
    Now my husband won’t hafta stay up all night on MAC’s site cuz I have to work!
    He was sreaming “GET TWO” (Marine Life) cuz I got him all fired up about it over the weekend! LOL

    I just got one tho – and some other stuff!
    Sooooooooooooo excited!

  32. sf

    yeah! got marine life and weekend, but waiting for it to hit my local store so I can B2M for lippies and e/s

  33. SiaM

    Thank you so much, I just had an adrenaline RUSH!!!!!!!!!I even purchased a blush that was not on my list 0_0 and of course the beach bag(yay!!!), lipstick, lipgloss, and bronzers!!♥x♥x♥x

  34. Shannon

    Yay!! Thank you soo much Christine:)

  35. Heather

    I’m so glad I saw this, otherwise I would have missed out! I only ordered Marine Life for now. But I plan on getting a few more things come Friday when I get paid. I hope the things I want won’t sell out between now and then!

    • If all else fails, Nordstrom & Macy’s will still put it up soon… possibly nearer to Wednesday/Thursday. As far as I know, their stock should be separate from what’s set for maccosmetics.com 😀

      • Heather

        Oh yeah, I didn’t even think of that. Thanks, Christine. :)
        Besides Marine Life, do you think the other items will sell out quickly?

        • On Bloomingdale’s, In the Buff sold out (or at least they didn’t ship me mine, even though I got in pretty early–along with no Marine Life!). No clue why. I heard UK sold out of Scorcher pretty fast.

  36. Wendy

    MAC’s site is going to crash for sure! LOL

  37. Jenni


    Bought 2 Marine Life compacts, Hipness blush, and Thrills lipstick. I’ll go in to swatch the rest before purchasing when it comes out.

    Thanks, Christine!!

    • Jenni

      OMG! I just got an email from MAC saying,
      “Regrettably, we are unable to fulfill your order for the following item(s) as it is temporarily out-of-stock. We expect to ship the item(s) below within two weeks. If you wish to cancel the shipment of any item, please contact us at 1-800-588-0070. We will ship any non-canceled item(s) as soon as it is available, with no additional shipping charges.”

      Hmm.. So does this mean I’ll still get my Marine Life within 2 weeks? Or is there a chance I’ll never get to see it? :'( I placed my order ~7:30pm EST..

      • I would call them and ask if it’s 100% for sure you’ll get it!

        I ordered from the site another item and got the same email (not for Marine Life, obviously!), and they did ship it to me the next week – but it was a permanent item. Anyway, I would call.

      • Samantha

        I placed my order around 5:30, and I received the same email. Sad day….

  38. Angie

    I just placed my order I’m SO excited!! YEEEEEEE!

  39. Angie

    I ordered Firecracker and Sweet N Punchy Eyeshadow, Hipness blush, Marine Life powder, Thrills and Beachbound lipstick and Flurry of Fun lipglass! Everything looks so pretty I cant wait to see it in person!

  40. Stephanie B

    YAY!!!!!!! i am so geeked i order marine life of course and scorcher…but i ws looking at the temperature rising look.. i might order more whn i go to the pro store on saturday.. is anyone gettn the bag?

  41. Karly

    Christine! I ordered from mac yesterday.. I’m new so this is all new to me. Will my order be really slow to me now because of all these orders? I wish I waited): I ordered from mac yesterday and wished I got one of these lipglasses rather than a lustreglass in flusterose..

  42. Jacqueline

    thank you SOOOO much Christine!!! i ordered SO MUCH!! and i got to get marine life which im soooo excited about, all thanks to you! i never thought i’d get one! i thought i’d be sold out by the time i could get it! i love you and your oh so informative website! I got marine life, beachbound, thrills, easy lounger, hipness, and sweet and punchy from to the beach. then i got rubenesque paint pot and studio sculpt concealer! I also got the 217, 239, and 210 brushes! best purchase ever!! i think i got so overwhelmed and exicted with “to the beach” that i bought $75 more than what i was going to spend!! anyways, thanks soooo much!

  43. Wendy

    OMG!! Marine Life is SOLD OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. Michelle

    Marine Life is already sold out!! Good thing I preordered 2 at Macys!!

  45. Christine shen

    It is Eastern standard time 8:07 pm 5/24/2010.. Marine Life SOLD OUT!!! Wow!! lol

  46. Sabrina

    Wow! Marine Life is sold out already.

  47. Kerry

    wow, marine life is sold out on the website already!

    • IZzySA



      LMAO.. ENJOY!

      p.s. I have a sample which I have been using and it is fabulous — I wanted a back up… but will wait for Wonder Woman and Villains. Thanks for heads up Christine:)

  48. Aimee

    Well Christine you were right! It is 7:12 pm central standard time and I just checked the website..Marine Life is already tagged as SOLD OUT online..that went quick!!

  49. lulee

    omg i cant believe marine life already sold out!

  50. Kelsey

    I FINALLY convinced myself that I need Marine Life and now its sold out! Is there a way to reserve one at my local store or counter?

  51. DevilishDoll

    I ordered Marine Life and Flurry of Fun about 45 minutes ago or so, now I just looked again and Marine Life is sold out. Does that mean I might not get mine, or will I get it since it didn’t say sold out when I ordered?

    • You probably should – I think they worked out some kinks in the system so the counter is more accurate. There is a chance that anyone who ordered the 1/2 hour before it sold out may be out of luck – but we’ll have to wait and see.

      • DevilishDoll

        I got an e-mail saying that it’s temporarily out of stock and should ship within 2 weeks. I’m hoping that means that they really will ship it eventually.

  52. ana

    thank you thank you thank you for letting us know. I made it in time to place my order. I got confirmation. I think I made it just in time

  53. Angela

    i have a quick question. i am having trouble deciding on the lustre drops. I was wondering if you knew if Benefit High Beam is close to Pink Rebel lustre drops.

  54. Miranda

    I bought Hipness, Easy Lounger, and a bronzer in refined golden! I can’t wait!!

  55. Jessy

    The Marine Life is Sold Out!!!! Online

  56. Michelle

    The sad thing about Marine Life being sold out so fast is that I’m willing to bet that greedy people where buying them up by the truckloads just to resell them at 3x the amount. The same thing happened with Ripe Peach.

    • There is always that, but I think a lot of people purchased two because of how pretty it is. We have no idea, though, just how many people purchased :(

      It’s not worth $70. LOL. I am hard-pressed to say any MAC blush or whatever is worth $70.

    • Melisa

      I totally agree. There should be some sort of limit on how many can be ordered. When Urban Decay sold out of the Alice Book of Shadows I was PO to see people with the buy it now with like 10 in stock

  57. sf

    omg marine life is already sold out as of 8 30pm!

  58. Marine Life….waaaaaah!

  59. Lynn

    Wow! Can’t believe Marine Life is sold out!

  60. Sandra

    Is there a link to Macpro??

  61. Cloé

    OMG I can’t wait this collection to be available on Canada’s website I want Marine life so bad!

  62. Elizabeth

    so upset marine life is sold out! and all of this because i was too busy taking a nap. :(

  63. anja

    Wow Marine Life sold out fast! Good thing I already talked myself out of it and bought Hipness instead. Also got Thrills and the Pink Rebel Lustre drops. Thanks for all your hard work Christine. Such a help when it comes to deciding what to order.

  64. Jennifer

    Wow Marine Life is ALREADY sold out online!

  65. Amy

    I am confused, How come the link that you posted looks wayyy different than how my little Canadian site looks? Is that how the American one looks all of the time or are we going to get a layout change. This is probably a dumb questions since no one else has seemed to have asked it!

    Thanks again Christine, as usual you are amazing.


    • The U.S. site got a face lift quite awhile ago – I think last year or the year before. I have no idea why it hasn’t been updated across the other country websites, to be honest.

      • The UK site is like that too, but personally I prefer our good ol’ Canadian site. There’s less loading because less fancy, so I can grab and go faster =P

  66. Alex

    So I go on temptalia and see that To the Beach is online….I take a nap…..I wake up…..Marine Life is sold out…HAHA! Good thing I’m planning on buying it in-store anyway! Just goes to show you, you could have BLINKED and still missed it…..crazy people……

    • Yep – it reminds me of Barbie for MAC, but it was kind of worse… because it went online around 9PM PST on the Monday, and MAC didn’t even send out the email notification (to the people who signed up SPECIFICALLY to be notified of the Barbie launch) until about 18+ hours later :(

  67. mimi

    What time are they supposed to launch on the macpro site? Do you think they’ll have marine life on there? Thanks Christine

  68. Kat

    I think I might have to order online. I’m worried if I wait till the weekend the products I want will already be sold out. My mac store is in a HUGE mall and they tend to run out quickly.

  69. Diana

    Whoa.. it hasn’t even officially launched and Marine Life is already sold out. I feel bad for the people expecting to get it tomorrow.

    • Samantha

      I feel really bad for them as well! I ordered it right when I saw that it was available, and then I chatted with a MAC artist about what the must-have items were. She recommeded the Marine Life and told me it would be available tomorrow. I’m so glad I ordered it when I did!!

    • Chi

      I got it mmmhahaha!fromcanada

  70. Val♥Temptalia

    You don’t this this was the full “official” quantity, do you? =(

    • It really depends — it very well could be. Nordstrom & Macy’s should put their stuff online in the next day or two, and I believe their stock is separate (like each store buys their quantity and fulfills their orders).

  71. The Marine Life is already Sold Out : (

    • Julia

      I know, I saw it at like, 3:30, but decided I would wait till this evening to buy it and then BAM! Sold out… I’m never making that mistake again…

  72. Why is there a sneaky link? I wonder how she found it. I just pre-ordered the marine life highlighter @ my local Dillard’s. I think everyone should do that!

    • I just changed the link at the top – Superglass was #### and I just moved it up one to see if that was the link to the full collection :)

      You can also just search for the products, and they’ll all show up. If you’ve been playing the will-it-sell-out-game with MAC as long as I have, you learn your way around the site!

      • HAHAHA!! I love playing that game! I usually do it when I’m ultra bored and wonder what’s been selling out on collections.

      • Oh I’m so sorry for you lot in the US that Marine Life is sold out already! :( At least it took a couple of days to sell out in the UK.

        Christine, what a sneaky, but great idea about changing the number! I never would have thought of that. I found what I needed on the UK site by searching for individual products, but this is even better! :)

  73. Ashley

    i just got done ordering a l/s & lipglass. i was looking forward to getting the highlight .. which was sold out online :( but otherwise, wonderful collection!

  74. Maria

    So glad I got your twitter updates to my phone for the day to see if the Collection went online and bam the second I got off of work I got a text with your tweet with the link and I ran to the libary a block away from work and order Marine Life, Hipness and Pink Rebel if I decide I want anything else I’ll just get it at the store.

  75. Amanda

    is there a possibility they only made a limited amount available before the collection was officially launched? I mean honestly, how many people could have known about the sneaky link? Were there only 20 marine life’s in stock? Seems unlikely that a normal stock amount would sell out that fast…if so, then screw MAC

  76. I wanted Marine Life but I guess it wasn’t meant to be. I got Hipness & lazy day & some stuff from other collections. I already have refined golden, humid, and shimmermoss. Lot of other stuff looked nice but I want to only get thing I know I will use & not just because it looks nice. Congrats to all who got the Marine Life.

  77. Kim

    i had actually just checked the website before coming here to see if it was out yet and it wasn’t….at least it didn’t look like it! but i just made my purchase…thanks!!!! im thrilled i can get this order in before i leave for vacation on weds 😀

  78. Maureen

    When will the collection be on the Pro site? Or will it?

  79. Evelyn

    *sniffs* no Marine life! I guess I will just have to enjoy the Lancome bronzer instead that your review sucked me into buying! hehehe At least my wallet will be taking less of a hit. :)

  80. Colleen

    Marine Life is sold out :'( idk if i have ever been thsi upset over makeup, i have been looking at swatches for it for weeks. I am olny 14 and this was going to be my first big MAC purchase. I am crushed :( please let me know if you find out any more information on Marien Life.

    • Julia

      OMG, same here! Marine Life was gonna be my first MAC purchase, and now it’s sold out! ARRGH! I heard you can call your local store and ask them to put it on hold for you, though. Maybe you can try that?

  81. Patty

    I can’t believe how quickly Marine Life sold out! Thank you SO much for tweeting about it during the day. That actually could have been the reason it sold out so fast :]

  82. Rebekah

    ugh, i placed an order earlier today for some random stuff i wanted and then when i checked later in the evening for the Beach stuff, i noticed it was online but i checked for marine life and it was sold out:(

    contacted customer service though and asked them if/whe it would be restocked so hopefully i’ll be able to get one. if anyone has bought more than one, *hint hint* you should contact me lol

  83. Lisa

    OH NO!!!!! i hope they do restock….i’ve been waiting for this forever…

    • Rebekah

      meeeeeeeeee too. another army wife whos spending the week in NYC is going to go scouting for me to see if she can find a couple for me. i was so ticked when i realized i hadn’t checked the mac website for a couple hours and go figure, when i did, it was already sold out. stupid stupid self lol

  84. Rebekah

    ooooh, on the upside though. along with the order i placed earlier (i’m an addict…and my husband won’t be too happy when he checks the bank account from over in iraq lol!!) i ordered the tote bag, sweet and punchy and firecracker e/s(though i’m concerned. Christine: in what ways is it similar to Rated R or Lucky Green?), beachbound and Lazy day l/s, all three lipglasses, a cream bronzer, and pink rebel lustredrops:) now i have to stalk the internet and call all the places within atleast 3 hours of me to find that darned high light powder

    • It’s kind of the same chartreuse-y green, but it’s yellower – more like Rated R than Lucky Green. It’s beautifu, though, so if you enjoy that shade… I think you will still like it.

  85. Ledonatella

    I called MAC earlier and they said that was a “test” page and not the real launch yet. I doubt they are really going to let it be sold out when it isn’t even offically online yet. It never even was posted to MACPro like I said earlier.

    • If that’s the case, they’re going to have thousands of pretty pissed off customers – you can go under each category, like eyeshadows, or search for the products and get to it – they have done instances where they’ve put products up and have it say ‘Coming soon!’ rather than allow you to purchase & send you a confirmation.

      • Samantha

        Yeah…I doubt that it was a test. I don’t think they would have let us order if it wasn’t for real.

        • I’ve seen a lot of collections go online via search, and not a big splashy page, so it would be a big surprise if they did that. Usually it’s on the website, even with the big splashy page, before the mass email goes out!

          • Maureen

            If they took your money- its bound to be yours whether it was Monday or Tuesday- First come first serve-I’m sure. JMHO

            • Yes, I think even if it was a test (though I don’t think it was, given past experiences as a baseline), I would imagine they would honor those who already ordered first.

      • Agreed! I can see the “coming soon” thing… but if it were just a test, I doubt MAC would let us add to our cart, take us all the way through checkout, send us confirmation emails, AND add the items to our previously purchased list.

        Maybe if it were really a test, it was just a test to see what would sell the most, to see if they had to make more of a certain product. Or maybe it was just a test batch, and they’ll add the rest of their stock to the website for the official launch!

  86. Shah'ada

    I grabbed Hipness, Shimmermoss, Firecracker, and Sweet and Punchy. I couldn’t resist!!

  87. Hi Christine,
    Do you think Splashing l/g is similar to English Accents l/g?

  88. rashmi

    thanks dear for information
    i was bit late marine life is already sold out…
    but i managed to get hipness, thrills, flurry of fun, funbathing, splashing , lazy day …
    let see when they launch in india after 2 – 3 months i might be able to get marine life lets see…
    but u know they only send 10 – 10 pieces each to the stores so most of them are booked by high end makeup artist…
    awww my bad luck:(:(:(

  89. Kelli

    Do you know when the collection will go live on Macy’s website? I have a gift card, which is the only way I’m allowing myself to get stuff? Can I call Macy’s tomorrow and put stuff on hold?

  90. nayeli

    i ordered Marine Life and i just received an email saying that its out of stock :( and that they will try to ship it within 2 weeks, i think i will call my macys and put it on hold if possible and cancel my online order…..if i wait, will my product arrive?

  91. Jane

    I called MAC this morning and they said that its available online on the 26th!! Ugh! :(

    I called Nordstroms and pre-ordered the last 2 Marine Life Powder. Although the guy was kinda confused with what he’s doing. Hopefully, he did place my order!

    aaahhhh man i missed it! Ill for sure be calling some number tomorrow morning to see if i can still get at least one marine life.

    anyways…i wanted to know what you though..which bronzer would be better for my nw20ish complexion, the beach bronze cream bronzer or one of the powder bronzers in the collection. I am new to mac bronzers and i want something natural looking

    Does Anyone know if there is a free shipping code for the mac pro site??

    I got a confirmation email saying I would be shipped a Marine Life, and just a little while ago got another email saying it was “regrettably” out of stock and that they expected it to ship within two weeks…so there might be a restock! Unless that’s MAC just letting me down easy…but there might be hope for all of us that don’t live by a counter or major department store!

    • Wow — what time did you order?

    • I’m having a similar, yet kind of different issue. I ordered Marine Life, got the confirmation email… got NO out-of-stock email. But the product isn’t showing up in my “Previously Purchased,” though the rest of my order is. Strange….

      • Have you gotten a ship email? We shall see what tomorrow brings…

        • No ship email yet… ordered at around 640pm EST today. I mean, if I don’t get it or have to wait two weeks, no biggie. Just perplexing that it’s not in my previously purchased when the rest are!

          • Yeah, I haven’t gotten any ship notice yet & I did 2-day shipping, so it *should* ship soon… then again, typically when I do 2-day or overnight, they don’t tell me it’s shipped until after it’s arrived, lol!

            • OMG same here! I get the “ohey we shipped your stuff” and then I look outside and it’s there. Wacky. Had a thought as to why it’s not in previously purchased… maybe because it’s sold out? I ordered Ripe Peach online a while back and that’s poofed off my previous list as well. HRM. The world may never know.

              Also… what more could you possibly be ordering, silly girl?!

            • LOL, yes… nothing better than a lil’ black box on your doorstep and an hour later MAC says, “It shipped!” THANKS!

              I wanted to grab a Marine Life or two for giveaways, lol! I wanted to do three to giveaway, but my unveiling event only had *three* to sell so I just got one.

            • Your unveiling only had three?! Totally understand your ordring then!!!

            • They pre-sold all the rest. I think what was more annoying is I’ve never really heard of MAC *stores* doing such excessive pre-sales/pre-orders, so I didn’t think to do so. Nonetheless, it looks like they pre-sold maybe 10-15. Considering unveilings are attended by 100+ people…

            • Yiiiiipes! I emailed MAC last night since it was too late to call… they said Marine Life is definitely in my order! -happy dance-

    So I placed my order for Marine Life (as well as some other items) at 7:38pm Eastern. Looks like I got it just before it sold out. Buuut!

    Two hours later I got a Backorder Notice about Marine Life (but not any of the other items I ordered) via e-mail. It said the following:

    “Regrettably, we are unable to fulfill your order for the following item(s) as it is temporarily out-of-stock. We expect to ship the item(s) below within two weeks.”

    Sooo lame that I may have to wait awhile :( But maybe it’s good news for everyone else as it looks like they are planning to restock.

    • Sounds like it could also be a case of they’re not 100% sure that they have stock to fulfill orders, too. Like anyone at the tail end of when it sold out may get that email so they can ensure they have the stock they need to fulfill the orders they took.

      I had that happen on another item recently and it took about a week for it to be back in stock!

      • This happened to me with some liberty of london items and it took 2 months for them to arrive. They didn’t bill me or send me a shipping e-mail though?! but hey free MAC, I’m not complaining :)

      • Yams

        Well it’s official, they’re all out. A new e-mail came in today to let me know that the Marine Life was no longer available and to apologize for being unable to fill that part of my order.

        I have to say, I’m pretty sad :( Looks like I’ll have to hit up some stores in the area tonight.

    • stephanie b

      uh i know i placed mine… its online at nordstroms :)

  96. I can’t wait for it to show up on the Canadian site. :) Stock is separate from that for the USA. The delay is probably because it’s Victoria Day today.

    • Ooh, that could definitely be it :) I know that there was a holiday here and it delayed a launch online, LOL. I remember ’cause I was MAD.

      • Mary

        So when do you guys think it’ll be up on the Canadian site?

        • Christy

          I am guessing it will be online on the Canadian site around 7am eastern time. Holidays are great but sadly delay launches online. Am glad I got most of my goodies last week :)

    I ordered Marine Life right you posted the collection was online. I fully intend on purchasing more items from the collection but, payday is still a week away. As it stands, I have 13 more random items sitting in my shopping bag just waiting to be purchased. I was so excited to get Marine Life before it sold out that I forgot to look for a free shipping code!

    Thrills!!! It’s gorgeous!
