Your Guide to Upcoming MAC Cosmetics Collections – Updated 4/2/12

This post will be updated as information, images, swatches, and reviews become available.  If it’s not on the blog, I don’t have more information, or, in rare instances, I’m not allowed to post until a certain date.  If you have information not yet posted on Temptalia, feel free to submit it! It can be collection information, photos, swatches–whatever! Just send it to [email protected].

All dates are subject to change. You should always call your local store/counter to verify the date, because MAC does have a habit of releasing launches a week or so earlier.  Please note that collections launch online typically the Tuesday before the Thursday on-counter date.

Archived

Occasionally, as the year ends, we’ll be archiving all of the information previously found in this post into year-specific posts. Just click the appropriate link below for the year you’re looking for! :)
