These are sneak peek swatches to hold you over while I test the products and write-up reviews! Please hold all questions until I’ve had a chance to write the full review :) Thank you!

    oh no no no

  2. I’m not sure if I’m impressed yet, but I’ll have to wait for your reviews! Thanks for the heads up!

  3. Miss Priss

    Wow!!! This all looks great. :)

    Hmmm, so far the “In Extra Dimension” still gets my money but I am waiting for the paint pot reviews on this collection! When paint pots are done right, I love them! However a lot of the recent “pro” ones have been extremely hit and miss. Can’t wait to see what you think of them.

    Isn’t the blue glaze like the lipglass Chill?

    Devil’s Food looks like it wants to camp out in my lip wrinkles. But the face powders are super cute!

    In For A Treat looks like a less pigmented version of NARS Albatross and the other Pearlmatte looks like is wouldn’t work for a lot of skin tones.So far I’m not really liking a lot of the collections that MAC is releasing especially since some of the collections don’t have everything available when they launch.

    OMG I’m so excited. I really want the pink buttercream pearlmatte face powder. I’m extremely pale so I see it working well for me. I can’t wait for the full review!

  9. I’m loving the Lavender Whip and Pearl Mattes. I wish MAC would give you the entire collection :) It’s how we decide what to buy! Thanks for the swatches :)

    Lavender whip <3

  11. The designs in the Pearlmatte Face Powders are lovely.

  12. Avatar of tzwiggy t_zwiggy

    I want the pearlmattes really bad, they are so cute, but the swatches aren’t impressive at all :(

  13. Jennifer H

    everything looks underwhelming…if Mac is trying to mimick the fancy packaging of Japanese counterparts (read: Jill Stuart) it’s just a complete fail…

    I guess my favorite is the extra dimension collection. Thank you Christine, this is a big help.

  15. Tree

    Is Devil’s food lipstick a close dupe to Sinister from the Villains collection?

  16. Wow – disappointed! I didn’t think much of this collection from the promo images, but now I really doubt I will pick anything up. Sad.

  17. Avatar of Lauren Lauren

    Hmm. I was thinking about getting the Pink Buttercream PM, but I think it’s probably a little too close to Veronica’s Blush for me to want to have both.

  18. Virgg

    Is it just me or does lavender whip look more pink than it was b4 :(

  19. Avatar of Marisa Marisa

    Unless the rest of the collection somehow blows all of these out of the water I see another disappointment looming. So sad, I wanted to love this collection, and my sister is a chef so I planned to buy her a bunch of it if it turned out awesome. I’ll wait for your review but I’m less hopeful with these swatches. I seriously don’t even know what “In for a Treat” would be used for, unless you’re a geisha girl maybe?

    Huh, my Lavender Whip (from the last time it was released) looks a lot less pink than the swatch; I wonder if it changed. The face powders are pretty tho;.

  21. Isa

    Pink buttercup looks good

  22. Oy! Not sure what to say. Quite certain this collection is a pass. Only the pearlmattes have any appeal for me.

  23. Janelle

    I am liking the lavender whip and the pearlmattes. However, as a whole the collection is underwhelming to me. I am not sure I will BUY the lavender whip or pearlmate

  24. I’ll have to see how unique the PM powders are. They both look like they’d work on my complexion, but they also look like things I might have already. I had hopes for Devil’s Food, but it looks like a splotchy version of Nars Vendanges, just a bit darker.

  25. Chloe

    Thanks a lot for the swatches. Is there anything else in the collection or is this just it?

  26. Ao

    Pink buttercream looks like “full of joy” from last year’s blush collection. And fancy frosting is like maybelline’s “too cool” color tattoo.

  27. Avatar of Sarah Zara

    The pearlmattes look good, but everything else is under-whelming so far

  28. Stephanie

    Very dissapointed in this collection. All of the colors are rather boring and blah. Plus after Extra Dimension and Fashion Sets, my make up budget is pretty much blown for a few months.

  29. Avatar of Jae Jae

    Lavender Whip looks far less purple and waaaay more pink. :/

  30. Mya

    Would the In for a Treat Face Powder look good on darker skin tones?

  31. MiMi

    I’ll pass. It looks like a very confused collection: lavender AND bronze lipsticks?

  32. Sandra

    Is this collection coming to the counters at Nordstrom?!

  33. Nikki

    lol, Lavender Whip swatch looks just like budding love to me!
    which i returned cause i couldnt see it on my lips
