Launch Date (Updated): Now available as of March 23, 2010 online at MACCosmetics.com.

UPDATED/EDITED MARCH 23, 2010

Hi all!  MAC has put the Trip Collection online for sale — this collection is not new.  It was originally released in Summer 2009.  It consists of permanent or previously released limited edition shades, but there are no new or exclusive shades to the collection.  It is available ONLINE ONLY at this time.  If I have swatches or a review available, you will find the collection that the shade was from originally linked.  Might be a good way to snag some old LE shades you missed out on if you’re newer to MAC :)

  1. The cool eyes palette is missing a colour name & description (blue one) :) x

  2. Leah

    I noticed that too, I think it’s deep truth that’s missing.

    Finally, a collection I don’t want anything from! lol.

  3. Wilcoa

    I would totally use these if I could get my hands on them… perfect for getting away this summer!

  4. Kayc

    Would be good for travel but I’m not really willing to go to Duty Free for these lol. I’d rather just mix and match some colours and put them in a quad.. same thing only you get to choose the colours you want :)

  5. Rachael

    Do you know how much these will cost?

  6. Andrea

    this is cool :) I want to get some of these!

  7. Briana

    omg those eye palettes are GORGEOUS! I want them all. :(

  8. evangelia

    i like the neutral eye palette

  9. I’d buy them if I had a reason to go to an airport. Lol.

  10. TLD

    I like the Warm Lips/Warm Eyes other than that no.

  11. shyradynne

    awww i like the warm and cool eyes but i don’t think i want to go all the way to an airport haha

    • Alex

      You can only access duty free shops when flying international. They don’t just let you walk in and shop, you actually have to have a boarding pass to even be in the store.sad cuz these are a pretty good idea

  12. This whole concept seems very strange to me.

  13. gail

    OMG I’M GETTING cool eyes and maybe the bronze eye and cheek too. Booking my holiday now especially!! (only kidding, but I know someone going abroad this month YAY!!! So excited, have been wanting Springtime skipper forever. Any idea on costings? XX Thanks!

  14. Andrea

    I really like the cheek/eye palettes!!!! And I am travelling this summer :)

  15. Candice

    Love the classic eye/cheek palette!
    xo.

  16. Now I have something to look forward to when I travel this summer!

  17. Angel

    Looks like the eyeshadow palettes will be $39.50, but the nearest duty free to me is unavailable unless i’m departing to somewhere out of the U.S., which I can’t afford to. Figures. So pretty.

  18. sprut6

    these look great and I might consider picking one up if I come across them but I won’t go out of my way to track them down.

  19. Yulia

    I think I’ll be getting all 3 eye palettes, I wonder how much they’ll cost?

  20. Moon

    Going to the Bahamas next weekend.
    Gonna get the classic eye/cheak pallete.
    :)

  21. ohhh looks pretty! how much? =O

  22. kat

    but they are only available at airports or duty free? Won’t be looking at this… I am sad, but debit is not. haha!

  23. No fair! So many repromotes and only in duty free stores?! Boo.

  24. Yayyyy for putting Waternymph in!

    These are all great combos!

  25. I’m sooo getting the next person that I know that will pass an airport with a MAC counter to get me the cool eyes palette! I WANT IT SO BAD!

  26. Emm

    I like the eye shadow palette’s too bad I already have at least 1 of the color’s by itself.

  27. Eva

    Umm..since when is Sunday Best a lustre?!?
    I love the eye palettes..even though I have most of the e/s in both the neutral and warm eyes, but it sure would be handy to have them all in one little palette.. :o)
    The cool eyes one, though, that one would be cool to have.

  28. Brie

    I am in love with all them, sadness!! ;_; I am going to have to find a way to get my hands on them *sigh*

  29. nancy s

    yay, im traveling to asia in may! Can’t wait to see this.

  30. Tina H,

    I will be going out of the country and will probably pick up a few of each, if anyone is interested. OOh, Christine – thanks for replying to my question about the types of eye shadows!!!

    Tina
    tinatx79@yahoo.com

  31. why do they include 2 lustre finish e/s in one palatte?? pretty clooection though.

  32. Mariana

    so these won’t be available online?

  33. Tamara

    Of all the times for Springtime Skipper e/s to come out, it comes out in a Duty Free airport palette! Grrrr! I have been wanting it since I missed it with Barbie! I wanted Whistle e/s too!! I’m loving the Neutral palette and the Warm palette….oh, well…I’m not traveling anytime soon so guess I won’t be getting my hands on them unless they end up in CCO’s at some point. :(

    • MsTrendy

      I totally agree… I would PAY BIG bucks for Pink Maribu lipstick also from Barbie I believe. I have been so afraid to finish the tube because onces it gone I wont be able to replace it. Same deal with Skipper. Also want Shy Beauty. I came close at one of the warehouse sales but it was sold out.

  34. Paola

    this whole duty free thing is so stupid!! guess i’ll be pickin them up at my cco in a year lol

  35. are these little pallets going to be sold at a mac store and counter??
    since it says airports in parenthesis. please let me know by sending me a message to my email.
    jonroxbaby27@aim.com

  36. ohhh and the prices for every one of these pallets because i want to purchase every single one of them! =]

    jonroxbaby27@aim.com

  37. Erica

    is there anyway to get a hold of these in San Diego or LA/ hollywood area? I’m not familiar with duty free places since I don’t travel much; thanks!

  38. emily

    where can i find out where duty free stores are?! :))

  39. lisa

    will be travelling in two months so if they are available i will get the warm and neutral ones for sure. They will be perfect to take on trips.

  40. Jenny

    Traveling on Tuesday, I’ll definitely stop in and see if I can find these! The neutral eye pallet is gorgeous.

  41. lisa

    Would really like to see some swatches of these sets.

  42. Amanda23

    Seriously!?! Airports!?! What airports even have MAC counters?? I wonder if these will be available at PRO stores????

  43. Sarah

    Funny…the warm eyes palette doesn’t look that warm to me, is it just me or did anyone else notice that?

  44. jasmine

    i love the warm eye palette even though i have Parfait Amour, i still want the palette

  45. jasmine

    i want cool yes also haha but i have Knight Divine already

  46. Joanna

    Traveling at the end of April! Hopefully they’re in Orlando and Vancouver. Definitely want the cool eyes and bronze eyes and cheek palette :)

  47. i am going to buy the warm eyes pallet… lol

  48. we have the older trip palettes at the CCO i work at. maybe these will show up too? we have a trip brush set too i believe.

  49. Caramel

    OH NOOO! There goes my money! I’m going to several countries in the summer and will be stopping by all the duty-free shops to check out the eye/cheek palettes — I love them all! Especially the Classic, looks so sexy!

  50. Rita

    One more reason to go to London again!

    • Sweets4uk

      do you know which airport sells MAC? heathrow or gatwick?

      also cuz they are at the duty free, does that mean I can only purchase them in I am flying? I dont mean to sound stupid, but could I not just go to the airport and pick them up?

      • All my DFS experiences require international plane tickets before you can even enter the store!

        • Brianne

          Yep, and if I remember correctly, you cannot shop in a DFS in the country in which you are a citizen. As in, if you are a UK citizen, you cannot shop in a UK duty free. I’m going to Mexico in June and I won’t be able to shop in the DFS in the airport here in the US, but I can at the one in Cancun Int’l.

          • Hanna

            The MAC counter is in Heathrow and it’s a great one. And I am pretty sure that you can shop Duty free in the country of your origin. I am from Denmark and always shop Duty free in Copenhagen airport. No problem there at all. So go check out the counter in Heathrow – God i have spent a lot of money there *lol*

            • Rita

              Late comment to my original one in April. I went to London in July, and visited the MAC Counter at Heathrow. Unfortunately the Neutral and Warm Eyes Palettes were all sold out, and I think the blush + e/s ones, too. They only had Cool Eyes Palettes. So I did not get mine then, but just recently I managed to buy the Neutral Eyes Palette from UK eBay. I love it! It’s very golden-brown-neutral. If you can find this neat palette from somewhere, buy it!

  51. Ha! Look what I wrote about last month
    http://www.borakwon.com/2009/02/always-save-little-for-duty-free.html

    I’m always in danger of spending all my holiday money in duty free before the plane even takes off. I’m passing through Singapore later this year and I hear that their MAC Duty Free counter is pretty impressive…. agony!

  52. wow i want the classic eye cheek & warm lips palette!!!

  53. Cat

    I got a trip to Vegas at the end of the month. Cant wait to check these out.

  54. anonymous

    oh, i really need to get neutral eyes and maybe bronze eyes/cheek.

  55. Avatar of Rebecca verybecca@gmail.com

    Whistle is a VP now? Why is purple suddenly warm? I’m so confused…gorgeous combos tho!

  56. Oh gosh, here comes the negative balance in my wallet…I really hate MAC some times, I wish they would just come out with a handful of collections throughout the year and made more things perminant rather than just a limited release since there’s a ton of stuff that no body uses that is perminant. =/

  57. Avatar of Valerie Valerie

    Will this be available in Canada? :)

    • jillo

      I just got the email from mac, it will be in the stores, so need to go to the airport.

      • Right now, they are only available online. They are not available in-store or at airports (as this collection launched last year in airports and is no longer available there).

  58. cloudburst

    I might get the Cool Eyes palette if I was in duty free simply because I don’t have any of those colours.

  59. Cayley

    can anyone tell me if these will be availible online anywhere? i live nowhere near an airport with a MAC in it!

  60. I like the first three palettes!

  61. Shanel

    yeah that sucks :(
    unavailable for me sadly.
    but why duty-free shops?

    • seriously right? i’m so bummed its only at airports.. not everyone travels MAC :*( lol i’m crossing my fingers somehow i’ll get myself one though…

  62. Avatar of Feda Feda

    aww i want them all!! im seriously going to every airport looking to get some hehe =]

  63. So, I live right next to Clearwater/Largo Airport, will it be there??

  64. diana

    i really want the cool eyes and the warm eyes they are gorgeou it does suck though because i can not put them on my palatte :( i dunno i’ll have to think about it maybe i’ll just get them seperately

  65. Lia

    I bought the warm eyes palette and got it for $39.50 =]

  66. Sarah

    None of this stuff speaks to me! :( Really wanted to like this stuff as i have a cousin who works in an airport who already buys cosmetics for me with her staff discount LOL

    And is it me or do these just look like the cheap fake MAC palettes than turn up on ebay? blergh!

  67. Anna

    wth? is there any other way to get these other than at an airport? prolly, macpro, right? that is silly, tho. I wouldnt go to an airport for this. I may know some people traveling, so i may ask them to get it for me. but the first pallette is similar to their cool eyes holiday palette, no?

  68. that’s the only con to some of mac’s products, they are so exclusive to certain places, unless you are willing to pay department store prices for individual products. i am going on a trip next week so hopefully I can get my hands on a couple pallettes. they are all pretty nice and more compact than 5 or 6 separate containers

  69. Nichole

    has anyone seen a MAC counter in an airport?! I’ve only seen Clinique…

  70. Kitty

    wow… i want all 3 eyeshadow palettes. they all look gorgeous!

  71. JennXOXO

    Awesome! We’re going on our honeymoon in May so I can buy this! Woot!

  72. Finally a collection that I want EVERYTHING from! :)

  73. Michelle

    Does anyone know the price for the eyeshadow palettes? Or all of it? I’m definitely getting the eyeshadows :)
    Btw, airport in Norway (Gardemoen) has a MAC counter ;)

  74. I’m pretty glad it’s not easy to get a hold of these… lol. Otherwise the colors seem really great and I love the concept. :D

  75. Hanne

    Yuck. The design is so outdated.

  76. Anita

    oh thats awesome!!! I was travelling in January, but the MAC counter in the airport had only a special travel size brush collection and not the palettes. I really hope that the next time I take the plane this palletes would be waiting for me! I gonna be broke even before arriving in the destination point :D

  77. wait, so we can only buy them at airports??

  78. Jessica

    how much are these going to be?

  79. sj

    I bought the Bronze eye/cheek palette in Bangkok this past week and its is gorgeous. Expensive but I love it. I really wanted Elite and Magic Dust, and Smut is an HG. Eversun is awesome as well.

  80. Alexa

    hi! i just came from sfo airport and checked out the duty free shop…they also have a set of 3 dazzleglasses, 3 dual sided eyeliners (like heatherette i think it was?),& 3 slimshines. they didnt have the neutral eye and lip palette. and the last color on the classic eye-print is not print..its a light green color. color scheme reminded me of the color ready colors. not so great. classic eye and cheek palettes are $34.

  81. srn

    Oh! How nice?!

  82. i aint thrilled bout this collection and unless u were going on holiday i personally wouldnt go to the airport just to buy any of this but i do think warm eyes has some lovly colours

  83. Kaylabella

    I would love to get all three eye palettes, but I don’t think I’ll be traveling anytime soon. ;(

  84. Summer

    Is it just me because it kinda looks like in the classic eye and cheek palett it looks like the sweetness beautypowder blush is tippy beautypowder blush from the hello kitty collection!

  85. neeshie

    I just got back from a trip to Toronto and picked up the cool eyes palette – its beautiful!

  86. Stephanie

    Does anyone know if Miami International has one?

  87. Mary

    OMG the blue and the warm eyes palettes are just like calling my name!! my jaw dropped…they’re so perfect. think about all the different combinations you can create!!! ahh the possibilities are ENDLESS!!! =D

  88. Neena

    How do u find a duty free shop?

  89. akon

    y at the airport only… luv some palette but sad that they don’t sale them at the mac store…

  90. Shannon

    Does anyone know if theyre is a MAC store at Frankfurt airport? Im going through there in two days.. If not, isnt there one at Heathrow airport? Ill be staying in Germany for 6 weeks and could probably fly to London for a day or two..

  91. charmaine82

    christine do u have their swatches. need it since my friend’ll go to singapore & already asked her favor to buy lip palletes

  92. Pernille

    I’ve got he cool eyes! YAY! Someone else who’s picked up something??

  93. Pernille

    Copenhage airport has got this collection

  94. I

    Both Heathrow & Gatwick have MAC – so does Stansted. But you can’t just rock up to the airport and buy them as the shops are in the departure lounge. You’d have to be flying to get through. Luckily a friend of mine is flying from Gatwick soon and has offered to pick up what I want from the collection!

  95. Julie

    I bought the cool eyes palette and was quite disappointed at the size; it was so small! :(
    On another note though, the colours were DEF gorgeous
    LOVE EM!
