loving some of these colors, but I feel like MAC is realizing that kat von d, urban decay, and bite beauty are almost all surpassing them in terms of doing new and interesting colors in a quality way, and are now trying to play catch-up with an onslaught of out-of-the-box options all at once. regardless, though, I am hoping swatches of designer blue, dew, on and on, and soft hint end up being good. as always with MAC, I’m kind of worried about sheerness and dryness.

I tried Dew on at a stand alone MAC counter and it was PIGMENTED!! I tried a lot on and they were pigmented but I can only remember dew because it was so unique! Then I googled “MAC Dew” and was confused why it wasn’t on temptalia! I almost couldn’t believe they were permanent until I saw them here.

that’s good to hear! I’m hoping to see some swatches of these before I consider picking them up. tempted by the variety of blues, but I definitely want to see them in action before purchasing.

I just purchased Dew. I love the shade and have wanted a periwinkle lippie for the longest time. I, personally, would have loved for this to be a frost. I think a frosty periwinkle should be next.

Do you have a Dillards or Nordstrom near you? They might have a MAC counter. I’m in Oklahoma City and while I don’t have a stand alone MAC store there are MAC counters in two of the Dillards in the malls here.

Some of the lipsticks have already launched at my local MAC store, and they are pigmented and creamy. Dew and Lightly Charred are really nice! I look forward to seeing how the frosts turn out.

I hope all of this release will be good, I see some things I really would like to add to my collection. Model Behaviour and On and On are to be mine, if theey perform well.

YES!! I was waiting for this post ?

I saw swatches of the lipsticks a few days ago and I’m thrilled to see new permanent shades and some really good repromotes like Punk Couture and Lavender Jade. I’m really excited to see the eyeshadows as well. I’ve seen some colors that might look crazy, but sometimes those colors turn out to be suprisingly good. I love MAC and I’m definitely a collector, but I’m glad that for once, I don’t have to get up super early to be the first in store to get my hands on some limited stuff since these are permanent!

And yes, I agree with what was said below (MAC realizing that brands like UD & KVD are out there slaying the makeupgame). Maybe that’s the reason they’ve decided to come out with really bright, bold shades?

Saw these in Nordstrom yesterday.I wanted to use my Macy’s gift card so I called around to find Deep Rooted and they had no idea what I was talking about. lol

Interesting additions to the range. I can only hope these perform well! I often find myself disappointed with the really ‘different’ colored products MAC releases…

I just happened to be at the local MAC store Monday evening and they had just gotten these in their store, so I picked up the Mangrove lipstick, which is such a fun color for the summer! I also did not realize that Mangrove was part of the Proenza Schouler collection. I also took advantage of the MAC select offer where you buy one lip product and get a free lipstick.

I am so excited for the lipsticks, so many of them seem so interesting and exciting, I’m going end up spending everything I have! Some of those blues and purples and pinks and probably the white if it’s not a chalky mess are definitely on my list! Can’t wait to try them in store.

wait they are repromoting dazzleshadows but no boom boom room?? oh man that’s the one I wanted and missed out on before when it sold out quickly here 🙁

This is such a great collection for my/anyone’s pro kit! So excited about all the amazing lip mixing colors! You can make pretty much any color with this.

Cannot wait for swatches! So looking forward to these. So far I want 14 lipsticks and 1 shadow. Glad they are going to be permanent, no need to buy all at once, plus I can back to Mac.

I feel like they felt pressure to keep up with all these other more reliable brands that people are flocking to now… You have ColorPop, Urban Decay just released all those vice lipsticks, and more. People are obsessed with all the colors. I feel like before MAC used to be the “fun brand” that was awesome, but recently there have been a lot of duds from them and not so exciting collections. Especially with all the YouTube collabs happening, so hopefully these are good quality because I feel like it could really help MAC out.

I saw this, and my brain exploded!!!!
I’m hoping there’s something *special* about Teal Appeal or that vivid emerald green eyeshadow….?

Not too excited about the Dazzle Shadows, since they didn’t review too great. Was hoping they would bring back the Color Drenched pigments from the Magic of the Night collection, but in new colors. Those were some of the most cray, cray pigmented blues and purples ever! Hope the new shadows perform well, but if it’s the same old MAC formula, then not holding out much hope for the colors. And of course, my eyes are zeroing in on the purple lippies, especially Model Behavior – violet with blue pearl sounds awesome, hope it’s not too frosty. And I see they made Lavender Jade permanent, not my color, but glad for those who couldn’t get it the first time because it sold out so fast.

Those are certainly some gorgeous colors! What I’m most excited about, however, is the fact that these are PERMANENT! Yay! That means I can relax, take my time, and not worry about shades selling out before I make up my mind. (It also means that I’ll probably end up buying more…)

Finally MAC!!!! It’s about time they added some unique colors to their permanent range. Now maybe I won’t ignore them so much anymore lol. Glad to see that Lavender Jade is back, too.

I’m so happy to see mac FINALLY adding some fun colors to the PERMANENT line. It’s been quite some time since M.A.C has impressed me with their collections. Glad to see they’re stepping it up again

The lipsticks were at my mac. I’m a sucker for a purple lip! I had to get 4eva & lavender jade. I’m just happy they are all permanent additions. Mac LE collections get overwhelming!

well my goal of collecting every matte Mac lipstick just got a whole lot more expensive. theyre really upping their game. Also, finally a permanent black lipstick. took you long enough Mac!

This is so freaking cool!!!!!!! I’m applauding MAC right now. Seriously. The more fun colors the better!!!! And permanent!!!!! I so so so so hope they’re good!

Looking forward to this! I hope the formula will be good. That turquoise (Soft Hint?) looks good; hopefully it performs well with an opacity akin to Jeffree Star’s Breakfast at Tiffany.

With all this new permanent stuff, does that mean there’ll be a mass exodus of discontinued products? If so, I hope my faves aren’t among them (eek!)

I really hope Dew reviews well, I desperately need an opaque periwinkle lip color for a costume with a August deadline, and haven’t had much luck.

I swatched Dreampot a few days ago in my local Mac, and it was a pleasant surprise – it has a bit of slip to it, so will likely require prep + lining, but it was SUPER opaque. Far far far better than the (non-)pigmentation of Cloud Gait and Gold XIXI. I’m expecting to be pretty impressed by these additions, so hopefully I’m not too disappointed!

I am thrilled to see Mac going back to the weird, wonderful shades that made me fall in love with them to begin with. Fingers crossed that there are some real winners here!

OMG I am so happy that the dazzleshadows are now permanent!! I love them so much and I always wished I picked up more than two shades back in the day. I’m very excited about the lipsticks too!

Yay, finally an official promo. I’m seeing different swatches of these on IG, but I think the shades & their names are jumbled. Kinda confusing. Can’t wait for your sneak-peeks, ’cause your swatches are always on point & you really help me decide which ones to get. So far I’m eyeing 4 lipsticks & an dazzleshadow.

Oh wow!! Really excited to see that MAC is releasing some new, bright eyeshadows! Feels like it’s been a while since they’ve had really colourful shades in the limited edition collections. Can’t wait to check these new shades out.

I tried on most of the colors this weekend and most of the colors didn’t look good on me. I purchased Deep Rooted and Punk Couture. I want Nifty Neon, Lavender Jade, Wild Extract, On and On, Designer Blue and Model Behaviour.
