    Thank you for the review Christine!

    great video.

    random questions in terms of color.. I’m a spot on NW30, but I do not have any pinky undertones, i have more yellow undertones. When looking at your color recs, I should still go with the warmer color recs, right?

    Also, what should I do when using the foundation matrix? It’s SO beneficial but should I be looking at the NC30 shade matches even though I’m nw30?

  5. good thing nordies just approved a charge for me =\ lol

  6. Theresa

    Are we able to use our pro discount on this collection? Thanks!

    hi christine- is bite of an apple blush a little similar but toned down color of nars exhibit a?

  8. Vijaya

    Do you know if these price increases are going to be permanent (on the eyeshadows and lipsticks) or if it’s just going to be for this collection?

    Hi Christine. Thank you so much for this video! I would like to know if Toxic Tale is looks like Vegas Volt.

  10. that was great!! thank you so much!! I love the evil queen collection!!

  11. Yvette

  13. Eliane

    Such a great video! Thanks so much for all the reviews, swatches and recommendations :)

  14. Sloane

    Thank you so much for this extensive and thorough video! I’m really excited about these, especially Bite of an Apple blush. I’m curious to see what will be the stand-out items that everyone wants.

  15. Thanks Christine. This helps me a lot.

  16. eleni

    I don’t know where to post this question but I was wondering if Bite of apple is similar to Fleur power blush?

  17. ChulaMc

    I was looking forward to this collection, but I only see maybe one eyeshadow and one lipstick I would even be interested in…. :(

  18. Laia

    Ohhh yes, I’ll soooo get the nail polishes!!! There’s no ORLY stores or places where they sell that brand near from where I live, but there’s a MAC store in Barcelona. I might check those out! Nice review, Christine! :)

    The Magically Cool Liquid Powders remind me of the Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder (which I love). I use the it as a foundation or a setting powder. I wished that they had something with a more of a sheen so I think Truth & Light will be just what I wanted. I also use the Smashbox Halo Bronzer & it appears 2 be very close 2 Cajun.

  20. lacey

    Thank you so much for this! I was wondering if the packaging is just like the LOL collection where the colors are printed onto the product or if it is actually a sticker? Thanks!

  21. Marianna

    Thank you for this really informative video! I want like… 10 things! Hahah it’s all so gorgeous! I’m gonna be broke… Again. Haha thanks again!

  22. Karen

    Great review ! Thanks Christine
    I was wondering, what color nail polish are you wear? I love that blue (:

  23. Rachael

    If you lock the focus on your camera or dont have objects in the background, the focus wont constantly go in and out.

  24. Ms. Z

    Great review & video! Thanks!

  25. Abby

    I don’t like Disney at all but I do love evil, and the fact this collection is based on villians makes me estactic. I was wondering though is how long does a MAC store carry a collection? I’m not loaded with money and I see a ton I want. So just want to know how long a collection is out.

  26. lexy

    Will you sell me your boxes? Lol. I really like the pop boxes. It makes me sad they won’t be available for consumers. My favorite lipssticks so far are innocence beware & Toxic Tale. :)

  27. Anna

    can toxic tale be worn sheerer than the swatch.. or is it completely neon and birght?

  28. Patty

    Hey Christine!

    Do you know if there’s a similar color to the “Bite of an Apple” blush in that Evil Queen box? :)

    • In what brand? Price point?

      • Patty

        The brand doesn’t but it shouldn’t be more than 20$
        I’ll really try to get it but sometimes it can be really difficult to get the products you want from a MAC Limited Editions – there are just few MAC Counter in Germany :)
        (I know the fact that I live in germany means it could be just as difficult to get the “dupe” but i hope it won’t :) )

  29. Faye

    for the baked marble shadows, how did you apply them wet? did you use another product or just good old water on your brush?

  30. In Europe (Austria) you would pay 1000$ for it o.O

  31. Michelle

    Cajan powder looks identical to the cooling bronzer that Prescriptives came out with… I wouldn’t be surprised if they recycled the formula…

  32. ajya

    Nice to meet you 
    What nail is a blue nail adding to the left hand?

  33. Hi Christine! Love the blog, thanks so much for these swatches, I’m excited to attend the Unveiling Party here in Houston for this collection. :)

    I had a question. How would you compare the Bite Of An Apple blush to the Marine Life highlight powder from the To The Beach collection? I purchased Marine Life when it came out and I wanted to know how they compared to each other before I purchased Bite Of An Apple, they look pretty similar to me!

    In conclusion, I’m in love with the lipsticks, glosses, and the beauty powders, I think I’ll be purchasing those out of anything else. Thanks so much once again! :)

    Hey Christine, I live in London UK, do you know when the collection is going to launch here?? What about the prices??

    Thank you very very much!! You do an amazing job with this website!!!


    • I only get U.S./Canadian prices, so I don’t know what the UK prices are. They should be maybe 1-2 higher than the regular price for each item. Sorry I’m not more helpful!
