  1. Smidge

    Sounds like a fun little mini-collection with a good summer-friendly shade. I’m down for a look. C:

  2. Allie

    I’ve never been this excited for a collection. I’m going to buy everything!

  3. Ivana

    Wasnยดt there more information a month or two ago saying that it was more of a smaller collection and that Lightscapade will be repromoted? I think I read that on another blog, but that could just be my fantasy ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Kelly

    My favorite bands front woman and my favorite brand this is a dream come true!!

  5. Looks like a color I am going to love… :-)

  6. 18thCenturyFox

    MAC is so flip floppy! I thought they had cancelled this, sheesh.

  7. Sala

    i’m kind of tired of the “celebrity” stuff lately. i don’t even know who this person is.

    • Just because you don’t know who they are doesn’t mean they’re any less of a “celebrity”. That’s not a dig at you or anything, I’m just saying.

      • Sala

        no, it’s true. i’m pretty lame and out of the loop as far as celebrities go. that’s why im getting tired of it…just a personal preference.

      • Sala

        okay, i won’t lie. just went to google her and i wouldn’t mind a lipstick looking like her hair color.

      • Samantha P

        Pretty sure she wasn’t saying that Hayley Williams was not a celebrity, but simply stating that she doesn’t care for themes involving a mildly famous person.

    • Tamara

      She’s the lead singer of the band, Paramoure. She’s famous for her bright orange hair.

    • Bea

      Okay.. but no one really cares if you don’t know who the celebrity is..(that’s what Google is for) if you like the product buy it, if you don’t keep it moving. For those who do know about Hayley Williams will buy the product because they love it or they love her! or simply both. :-)

      • Sala

        you should see my above post ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Marie

        I love paramore. Love Mac. Sad that it will all sell out in a minute.

        Oh and to the comment above: Okay but no one really cares about your opinion either. If you care about someone’s comment, ok. If you don’t, keep it moving. :)

        • xamyx

          Well, until now I had never heard of this person/band, either; then again, I listen to legit punk, not something described as “pop punk” (really?). Either way, orange is not a color for me, so it’s a pass. Also, it would seem this collection should have been released last year, along with the rest of all the orange makeup…

        • Nikki

          I’m half way worried it’ll sell out quick but a lot of people will either be like idk who this is who cares or orange? i dont want orange. I think us paramore fans are safe ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Pamela

      Yeah, I had to Wiki Hayley. I had no idea who she was.

    • April

      So, whenever I go to my MAC location Lighscapade is always available! Are they not re-vamping the packaging for Hayley’s collection?? Will anything be different about it? Either way, super excited about this collab! Sounds like Noise you shall be mine! :)

  8. admmgz

    I’m excited for this lippie!! MAC? Hayley Williams? A bright matte orange lipstick? It’s mine!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope I can pull it off

  9. Hmmm I think I need the sounds like noise lipstick and lightscapade!

  10. Claire

    My favorite celebrity and my favorite makeup line? Yes please!

  11. Ooh, I can’t wait until this collection is in the shops!

  12. kmk

    Lightscapade ?? My favourite shade of all time !!!

  13. Veronica

    I like the look of the collection, though I have doubts that the lipstick would work on my cool-toned skin. :) The colors are very Paramore, though.

  14. I’m mostly interested in the Mineralize Skinfinish…mostly because I’m pale and need something to liven up my skin lol.

  15. Carly

    Is this in the UK too?
    So want this!

  16. need that lipstick. I <3 orange lipstick.

  17. I thought Lightscapade was now permanent.

  18. Love!! Mac has been teaming up a lot lately.
    Like the Rihanna one.

  19. Christine I’m so excited about this collection I love hayley!!! And I have been told Coral tones look the bets on me so a bit of a tap of matte orange will do me wonders in the summer time. Fun and flirty I’m excited ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. breyerchic04

    I think I want that eyeshadow and like everyone lightscapade sounds good. I’m sure I can’t pull off the lipstick and have similar nail colors.

  21. I love Hayley Williams and I’m so excited for this mini-collection!

  22. Mercedes

    So excited!!!! but why can’t MAC do something with the ultimate bad ass, glamorous, awesome GWEN STEFANI!!!????? that would be the best thing ever!!

    • xamyx

      It may be because she has a contract with L’Oreal, but I would have to agree. Then again, it would be all the more disappointing if the collection was a big fail. I would personally expect more from a collection Gwen Stefani attatched her name to.

    • Pamela

      OOOOhhh, yeah! Gwen and MAC would be hot…but she’s a L’Oreal spokesperson…for now.

      • Mercedes

        You’re right!! well, I hope that when she’s done with L’Oreal she will do something with MAC, and it better be good cause Gwen is an ICON and all the young singers out now have been influenced by her as far as style and makeup!!! she deserves to have her own collection!!!! I see reds, chola,rasta,harajuku, and Marilyn lol and a whole lot of awesomeness!!!!

    • abigailod

      Now that… will be a dream! Gwen and MAC just seem so right together! =D

  23. Mel

    Love Hayley can’t wait to buy Sounds Like Noise.

  24. Rose

    Pretty annoyed with how MAC doesn’t produce special packaging on ALL LE releases

  25. Elodie

    I really hope we will be able to get this collection in France! I really want to try the lipstick and Lightscapade!

  26. carolp

    this is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. does anyone know what the packaging will look like??>.

  27. I’m so excited! (: I saw this on the Alternative Press Facebook page yesterday and squealed from excitement. xD

  28. L

    I think this is kind of a neat collection. I’d rather get something from this one than the Rihanna one, I’m just not a big fan. Paramore brings me back some good memories.

  29. Icequeen81

    I doubt I would like the lipstick ,and nail polish , but I like the rest of the package

  30. I’m so getting a backup for Lightscapade.
    Christine, I wish they could repromote By Candlelight, hopefully they’ll do so this 2013…do u think that could be possible? If you know anything I’m sure you’ll be the first to let us know, Im literally dying for that one and its nowhere to be found.

  31. maebeee

    But wasn’t orange the IT colour last year? Sephora Pantone and everyone else were pushing orange last year. Lightscapade is amazing but it’s not innovative. Mac used to be a leader not a follower.

  32. Well, I can’t say I’m surprised by all of the orange, considering Hayley Williams’ hair color. The eye shadow does look interesting, though.

  33. ZG


  34. Marian

    I love Hayley. I’m buying this whole collection…maybe even the nail polish which I never do.

  35. yuki

    omg lightscapade again. Im bloddy sick of it. man release like your old ones by candlelight peticoat havent seen them in a while

  36. Maggie

    I went to a MAC counter today and they told me this line was cancelled.

  37. vernie

    so pretty! i hope you do a review on the lipstick!

  38. Chris

    Eye shadow and lipstick!

  39. Cyd_J

    I really want a nice orange for summer, not sure if i want to wait tho…

  40. Mary

    Ill try to get that eyeshadow. Need to inject color in my palette.

  41. Cora Zane

    I like the look of Daydreaming. I don’t have a similar color in my collection.

  42. Lex Marie

    I love Hayley and this collection looks well worth trying.

  43. Naomi

    Does anyone know if you have to buy all four together? Or if you can get the items separately? I saw something about the whole thing being $65, and that is just too much money for me, as I don’t wear makeup too often. I just want the lipstick and the nail polish. Don’t need the other things…

  44. Ashley

    It’s online everyone! It’s called “Sounds like Noise”

  45. Alicia

    Can someone tell me if this collection is going to be extended internationnaly ? Im in France and i’d like to know if we’re going to have it here? Thanks in advance for your answers !!

  46. eva

    will this collection be launched internationally? or will it be only accessible online? please excuse my english btw

  47. Johanna Arriaga

    I have this lipstick and it’s kind of patchy on….Does this happen to you?

  48. Jeanette

    I received daydreaming and am really disappointed, I think its either a re promote or another name but same color…I already have this color,just can’t get the color because its in my palette that is depotted and I didn’t write the name down.

    • Vanessa B

      I think I will get the eyeshadow. I never thought anything of Paramore until they opened for No Doubt. Changed my mind Haley rocked that ish out! I purchased a good amount of their songs after hearing them live. I just think this collection needs a little more umph to match her personality!

  49. Amazing colors!! I love it!
