Maybe MAC Moon Bathe or MAC Neo Sci-fi. Though, my memory may remember them as better than they might really be!

Have you tried looking for it at one of the CC stores? That’s where I picked up Immortal Flower(I think that was from the same collection) about 7 months ago.

NARS… holiday last year? Whichever had the Danmari cheek palette; this year’s is not as well rounded in terms of colors–very coral. I wish more of MAC’s stuff was perm in general. The Matte lipstick collection isn’t even available in store yet and I’m ALREADY annoyed that I’ll have such a small window of time to pick up the best shades.

Not so much collections in their entirety but products like MAC’s Brave new Bronze lipstick, Bobbi Brown’s Rich Chocolate palette and Dior’s Constellation palette the purple one with the stars embossed I wasn’t able to get my hands on any of those.

Oh what was the name of that MAC 2007 (?) summer collection that was African and tribal inspired…? I loved the pieces from that and all I have left is the yellow/gold eyeshadow.

Helena Avatar

So. Many. Definitely Moonbathe (although I do own a secondhand Claire de Lune!) and Neo Sci-fi (I am never not wanting my own single of Femme-fi) as well as Alexander McQueen (RIP. My favorite designer and the collection came out before I started buying MAC) and whichever collections the colorful Paint Pots, Paints, and Shadesticks came out in, ha ha. As for other brands…if Urban Decay repromoted the Ocho Loco sets, I would be quite happy (unless I am broke when that happens, like I am then and now…).

Kat Avatar

Argh, the Maleficent collection because I missed True Love’s Kiss! And a lot of other MAC collections. And the Urban Decay Motherlode, not that I’d ever in a million years be able to afford it, but I’d like to dream some more.

Mariella Avatar

Ha! Okay! I think the problem I was having (I was getting a very scary page telling me I was blocked) was because I mentioned the collection that included the Mega Metal eyeshadows. It’s the one named for the bird with the big, glorious tail! Weird, no?

also, so I think I understand what happens:

It’s a security measure put in place by CloudFlare, which is a Content Delivery Network that allows us to load the site faster by having the site stored throughout the world. But CloudFlare also looks to prevent malicious traffic coming through – I’m aware of two ways they do this. One is a page that tries to verify you’re a real person (I think it has a CAPTCHA on it), and the second says you’re blocked and is supposed to have an event ID # that says “tell the site administrator” which would let us try to look up the reason. The second seems to occur on occasion when people leave comments on forums (so it would make sense to happen when leaving comments here) where something written in the comment field looks malicious (like they’re trying to inject nasty script or something).

Of course, they don’t always get right, because we know you’re not malicious traffic! I’m still trying to look into softening some of that or seeing why or what words are triggering it.

I’m thinking this is the same thing that has happened with my free for haul comment from this past Friday.. I think it didn’t like the name of one of the items I listed…?

Sylirael Avatar

That Chanel one that had the Jadin de Camellias highlighter (if I’m remembering the name right). I think it was only from last year or something, honestly. 😛 I can’t really think of anything I’ve missed that I *really* regret, but I do want to own one of Chanel’s gorgeous highlighter powders at some point.

Safyre Avatar

MAC Moon Bathed and Antiquatease (not sure the spelling on that one), even though it wasn’t a holiday release can we get some Tendertones re-released? I know I’m not the only one down for that.

Jennifer Avatar

Hmmm, there are a couple of MAC collections that produced some really covet-able red lipsticks that could come back. Archie Girls, Wonder Woman and Marilyn Monroe come to mind. There are probably more if I think about it.

Gina Avatar

MAC Hello Kitty. I don’t even like Hello Kitty but I adored most of those products. I finally gave in to expiration dates and did “Back to MAC” with them recently and the sales people were freakinggggg out.

Cecilia Avatar

I have some lipsticks and lipglosses that should be tossed or b2m, but keeping for the packaging :)… it’s so cute. enkoremakeup has a tutorial on how you can reuse them by making your own or melting your fave lipstick and pop them in… maybe I’ll do that one day..

I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on their makeup bags and soft vanity case. I get a lot of compliments on it, even as it gets tattered and worn, aka well-loved..

Jess Avatar

Chanel Les Russies nail polishes…it’s highly doubtful I will ever feel justified in spending $500 on them on eBay, but they’re at the top of my lemmings list!

xamyx Avatar

I would *love* to see NARS just do a collection of all the DC’d purple eyeshadows, like Santorini, Moulin Rouge, Night Bird, and a few others… I also want Chanel Notorious…

Kristin Avatar

Good question!! For sure Mac Loves Barbie!! I have a few of the shadows but i want everything!! Rushmetal was another great one i didnt get enough from. Also the first Tarina Tarintino collection with all the cutesy plastic packaging with the cool cameos. Mac Madame B!! Fashion sets wit Embrace me lipliner, And Ablaze and Heroine lipliners!

The Urban Decay 24/7 Liner Vault and Eyeshadow Vault from last Christmas. Didn’t have the $ to purchase either of them then, missed the 24 hours Ulta had them a couple months ago. I want!

Maggie Avatar

Not so much collections but products. Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette–I really should have snagged that one when I had the chance. The textures and color selection were nearly perfect for me, and there were no gritty sparkles. Also, Urban Decay Gash Lipstick (the newer one). I might snag the Full Frontal set just for that. And MAC Runaway Red and MAC Viva Glam Cyndi. Also, the Sephora Disney sets–I loved those compact mirrors.

Donna Avatar

I adore the 15th Anniversary shadows. I don’t think I’ve been as excited for any collection since. The liner set is great as well. I got it from eBay for $9 a pencil – a steal in my book.

Lotus Avatar

Honestly, I’m not sure I’d pay for it now, even if it did come back. It would be done again, equally, I’d hope, thus I’m sure the prices for the same things in this year would be exorbitant for what we have dupes for. 🙂 I would love to see a My Little Pony and Labyrinth collection!!!

For me, I feel single items have stood out to me more than total collections, and seeing a few of those would be nice but still facing the issue above. Why not make things permanent? Ugh 🙂

I would like to see Dior Vernis Nail Lacquer in 902 Bar become part of the permanent nail color collection. I think Dior is long overdue for a Black nail polish in their nail polish. I suggest Dior re-release their Dior Vernis Lacquer in 902 Bar as part of their permanent nail polish collection.

Pasheeda Morris Avatar

Sorry about the grammatical typo error in last post. What I meant to say was Dior is long overdue for a black polish to be part of their permanent nail polish collection. Please, please, pretty please Dior! Please re-release Dior Vernis Lacquer in 902 Bar as part of your permanent nail color collection. I would love to see that soon!

Spring Colour Forecast, To the Beach or Venomous Villains. I just realized all of these where launchend way back in 2010. I don’t know what happened but somehow MAC’s limited editions quite lost their must-have quality. Maybe it’s just me…..

Maria Avatar

Hi Christine,
That is an easy one Tom Ford’s Cream eyeshadow’s! Supposedly he will be re-releasing Platinum and Spice in the near future maybe December?

Iliana Avatar

1. Style Warriors
2. Fabulous Felines
3. Cult of Cherry
4. Pret a Papier
5. Blonde Brunette Redhead (?)

Style Warriors wouldn’t be my first choice though – I’d rather have CoC or BBR released again over that.

I’m going way back….I want the Raquel Welch Collection (it had my favorite animal print packaging). I would also like N collection (best nudes ever!).
I don’t need the entire collection but would love some of my favorite some of my favorite items to be made permanent.

Simone Avatar

Mac Hello Kitty , Marilyn Monroe i don’t was abel getting the BeautyPowder and the Perfect Cheek also the Nude on Board Bronzer its my favourite but i’m almost out -.-

Nicole Avatar

Chanel Polish, Jade. Backup – I only wear it once a year! There are a lot of good dupes (I have a Revlon (I think) I wear more often. And the Russian trio of glitters, dark red, dark blue,dark bronze, in the THREE POLISH CASE would be a fantastic re-promote for the holidays! I’d ask for it again.

Nicole O. Avatar

mac rihanna fall 2013 – rose gold packaging , nude & talk that talk .

mac’s punk couture – back up of punk couture . also , instigator . still regret not getting instigator !

i don’t remember what collection it came from , but definitely whisper of gilt !!!!

GK Avatar

I still have Pink Clash from that collection, it’s the best lipglass ever. I’ve never found a dupe. Do you know of anything? I also enjoyed Cult of Cherry, the matter lips were my favorite & the shadow quad, and the loose pigment. They were all unique colors, not the re promotes like they do now. Whisper of Guilt should come back, just to stop the $200 price tag on eBay.

lena Avatar

Oops almost forgot MAC Riri Woo, Pleasure bomb and Riri boy. Not sure which collection they are in but I absolutely love those hate I missed out 🙁

Cecilia Avatar

ooh…. so many to choose from.. mostly it’s one specific product from a certain collection.. let’s see..

Mac hello kitty – their makeup bag and soft vanity case
Mac Spring Forecast – ombre blush in ripe peach
Mac Alluring Aquatics – wouldn’t mind getting backups of several of those products from the collection
Mac Antiquities – Sweet Sienna Pigment (btw – I wish they would go back to the large pigment jars, or something with a wider mouth
Also Mac’s Night Light pigment, no sure what collection that was from

UD – wish their Vice LTD would be more accessible.. I think I would enjoy that palette more than the Vice 3

some of kat von d’s palettes, like la vida loca or ludwig

that’s what I can think of so far… I’m sure there’s some I am missing..

Tomeka Avatar

I couldn’t choose between the two but I have to go with the MAC Fashion Sets and the Retro Matte Collection from last year. Loved them both!
