I’m not heavily into limited edition collections but I loved the “understory” (all fake, of course, but still lovely) of MAC’s A Tartan Tale. I loved the names of so many of the items, the photos of all those Celtic looking red-heads with the masses of messy hair tied up with bits of tartan. I only got a few of the products but I really liked the concept or the story or the fantasy…

I’m not a MAC follower (i like them but i dont own more than 5 things from them because i dont have a store in my small town), but that collections sounds beautiful. Too bad I missed it!

I agree, I was in love with the 20120 Guerlain Holiday/Liu collection. In fact, that was my answer before I even read yours! 😉

I don’t know if I’m the only one like this, but I can only ever seem to remember MAC collections! Like, I would never be able to tell you “x” product came from “y” collection from “z” brand. I don’t know why it’s like that for me. Many of the products I love aren’t from MAC, but I just don’t remember when they came out or with what collection. Maybe it’s because MAC makes a bigger deal out of their collection launches than other brands, but they just seem to be more memorable.

With that said, I can only tell my favorite MAC collection, which was Lure. That was probably the last MAC collection I remember being REALLY excited about.

Guerlain Fall 2011. I love the shades of Ecrin 4 Couleurs that were released in the collection, and of course, Rouge Gs in Gigolo and Girly. 😉

I’m with you on the Holiday 2012 Collection as well, Christine. I’m obsessed with Turandot!

I loved the Barbie Loves MAC collection. The packaging was great and I loved all of the lipsticks. I also picked up a LE T-Shirt that I wore all the time. A close second was MAC’s Rebel Rock collection. I bought almost the entire collection.

BOBBI BROWN Tortoise Shell Collection Fall 2011. Sadly, she hasn’t came out with something that big and nice since imo. Thank you Christine xx

MAC venomous villains collection, I wish I can find many of the products I missed, it was my favorite collection from MAC.

I would have to say the Shu Uemura holiday 2010 collection. The colors and packaging are just too cute to pass up! It was my first high end makeup purchase too.

Everytime I see LE on anything it makes me want it for some reason, not that I always buy it. I haven’t been collecting or buying makeup or LE things for a long time, but I have never been as excited for anything ever than I was for MAC’s Archie Girl’s collection.

I have no idea! Even for the limited edition items I do have, I don’t categorize them mentally that way. I wouldn’t be able to tell you which collections they came from! I do get excited hearing about collections to come but then once I buy, I kind of forget they were ever a collection. I’m all about looking at my makeup stash as many individual items that I happened to love enough to purchase. I sort by brand, but like I said, I have no recollection of all the different collections at all.

Urban Decay 15 year anniversary….the eye pencil set and the eye-shadow collection. Crazy for the UD shadows. For what ever reason, when I found out Loreal acquired UD, my interest stopped.

UD 15th is my all time favorite too. I agree about loreal, another reason i was so loyal to UD is because they are cruelty free, so I’m waiting to see if being acquired by loreal will change anything.

It’s so hard to say – there are a couple nail polish collections I loved enough to buy the entire collection, though. Sinful Color’s Enchanted Collection comes to mind, it was just perfect – I love all the colors in it so much, not a single color I dislike.

Any BareMinerals limited edition collection is my favorite. To be specific, I would have to say their Hot To Trot lip gloss collection. It’s packed full of shades I can’t live without and use everyday.
