Do you know when it will be available online? I don’t have a Nordstrom near me either and would love to buy it online!!!

Hey Sara! If they are anything like the richmetal highlighters from Couture and Stylistics, then they are a bit creamy. But they’re in CCB style, and they definitely have a creamy appearance in the pics, so I think it’s safe to say they will be creamy!

OMG. This collection oh-so-conveniently launches the day after my b-day. I can just say goodbye to all my birthday money RIGHT NOW. *Sigh* Thanks for sharing these, though!

These collections are going to kill me… I could have cared less about Heatherette and Fafi for some reason, but starting a little with NN but mostly Neo Sci Fi, ALL the collections have/look like they will tickle my fancy like crazy!!!

I used to live a few blocks from a Nordstrom when I lived in L.A. – now, the closest one is in the Chapel Hill/Raleigh area of NC, which is an hour and a half away on a good day. Guess I’ll have to order on line if I want any….

Hey Jennifer!

At least you were spared Heatherette and Fafi! It gives you a little more moolah for the other collections!

WTF happend to the green pigment? did they change the color? The first green pigment picture is nothing like the green pigment in this picture…whats up with that??????

I adore the packaging but I am gonna pass on the shadow compacts 🙁

I would like the pink lipstick and am gonna have to check out the pigements.

Hey MJR! I have only played with the ones from Couture and Stylistics, and I definitely didn’t care for those, but these look different – hopefully better!

Ooh, the pigments look gorgeous!

I’m always apprehensive when it comes to brush sets though “/ I got one last year, and the quality in the brushes themselves weren’t up to par. Lame.

Hey Joey! IMO, brush sets are worth getting when you’re 1) new to MAC; b) cheap/on a budget; c) travel a lot. I find that the brushes are decent for the price (compared to the prices of them full sized!). They’re great for when you’re not sure you’re ready to shell out $42 on the 187!

Totally agree! I got a set to start me out and maybe they’re not as good as the normal brushes, but it was a fantastic way to start my collection 🙂

Oh, i like the look of these pics better than the old info. Especially the highlighters and pigments. And those are lip palettes? Hmmm….. 😉

I’m loving the dark blue and pink-reddish pigments!

I am also eyeing the red brush set as the brushes would seem to be more practical than the blue and green set. I wonder how much they are going to cost.

Also, what’s in the center of those lipsticks?

Yay! Thanks Christine for this awesome eye stimulant!!!

Sorry I’m a little lost here…
Is this a nordstrom exlusive or a regular MAC collection coming out in the states? In addition, will this be available this coming July also?(like the nordstrom exlusive).


Nordie’s exclusive. I don’t think it’ll be anywhere except Nordstrom’s, their website, and the Bay. But I could be wrong – I think I heard rumors that it would be online at the MAC site, but I haven’t heard it substantiated yet.

But yes, July 18th!

Ahaha. I just realized the word colour is spelled using British english. 😀 Nvm bout that… why oh why MAC. I want both eye palettes, the green pigment (humid in a bottle?) and the pink lipstick. Ah there goes my money for the next 3 months.

I have a little rant though. I wonder why the Heatherette launch in Malaysia is like in July…and yet, NN & Skinsheen came out last week and Neo Sci-fi is coming out next week. :/ I’m peeved.

Love the new MAC logo!!!! All of it looks cool…but as with the last few collections…not sold on anything until I see it in person.

I’ll get the 4 pigments that are new (have two of those already), and maybe one or two lipsticks…but the rest I can easily pass on…eh, not my cup of tea. Though the richmetal highlighters do intrigue me 🙂

Aww. The brush bags are so cute! I wish you could just buy those separately because I already have most of those brushes. 🙁 This packaging isn’t at all what I expected! It’s really simple but also really cute. Quite a different style for MAC. I definitely want the blue shadow palette (Cool Eyes?) and the purple Richmetal. Not really interested in the lipsticks (is it just me, or did MAC copy Avon?) but definitely want all the piggies, minus the two repromotes! Thank god this is for July so we still have time to save. I’m going to stab someone if anymore release dates get pushed up. I’m hoping my wishlist stays that small. Thanks for posting these, Christine! 🙂

I have so many brush sets, I definitely don’t need more!

I’m actually not lovin’ the new palette packaging, just because it seems kind of boring? I don’t know! Looks more like everyone else’s palettes.

OMG! I am new to MAC, I have only been with it and nice make-up in general since feb, so this is my first time seeing something like this. Everything looks sooooooooooooo pretty. I really need a couple of brushes and the palettes are gorgeous. SO EXCITED. Thanks for posting.What will you be getting Christine? Any suggestions for must haves? 🙂

Awww!! The beginning is the best part, so much to learn and see an get!

No clue what I’m getting – we’ll see how I feel. I so rarely reach for palettes, so they always end up sitting around collecting dust.

Oh wow very different. I still love that is like Holiday collection in the summer. I have to have that neutral trio.

Lets hope I remember to order from Nordies lol.

darn, i was going to go on a mac break after solar field/future earth…i guess not…i love the packaging…i hate mac, they’re making me go broke

MAC is making me broke.
I am liking the brush set and pigments.

I am still waiting for SolarBits and Neo Sci Fi. Dang, I can’t keep up with their new collections. Stop!!!!!

What is that round stuff in the middle of the lipstick? Is it supposed to be like balm or something? Cuz that’d be pretty cool 😀

The brush set looks cool too. Other than that, nothing else really interests me…

I think it might be like a highlighter/additional shimmer? No clue, lol. I know it’s the “inner core” though.

hm, i really hope that it’s not just the way the picture looks… some other pictures of the lipsticks show them sideways and doesn’t show the middle part… it would be really cool to have stuff in the middle lol.

love the packaging …the lippies look great and the green piggie and the powders wow i will get broke with this one dammmit lol

wow.. this collection seems awesome! i love the brush. especially the one with mini 187. will it be as good as the normal size 187?

Nice! It’s similar, not the same as the full size – but it’s definitely WORTH the price if the 187 is out of your budget (or you’re just cheap, like I was).

HEY Y’ALL…if you really want this stuff and don’t live near a Nordstrom, call your nearest store and talk to the MAC counter about what you want, if you order from a store the shipping is free…just FYI! 🙂

Hello christine,It’s hard to tell which excite me most. They just look nice but my favorite color is green. What’s your color?



everything looks so tempting,,i just wanna grab every single of them lol
the lipsticks look interesting! wonder what is the inner of it?
im so sure, that ill have a big problem this time for deciding which one to get!!!

so exciting!!

another thing that im wondering is..that logo on lipstick package,,is it sticker like fafi or just go smooth like heatherette? Hope they come in good quality package

Now that red brush set is keeping calling my name! uhhh red package!!!
but i prefer the brushes in blue+green one than the red one, can i switch that? lol

that is pretty good for the money!

Hey Christine, are you going to sell pigment samples again? Please do! Along with the lipstick, and the brush set, and the cheek colors and the shadow palettes. *panting*

Oh wow the packaging is so hideous! I hate to be so negative.. but wow D:

At least the colours look gorgeous! To be honest the ugly packaging may deter me from buying the palettes and force me to stick with pigments and eyeshadow singles-which will definately be nice on my poor poor bank account!!

I KNOW! I’m so totally shocked to be honest. My first reaction was like mini puke inside my mouth… but hey I’m just glad everyone else seems to like it!!

Thanks! You should be able to, if not, you can call up a store and do it that way, too. They’ll ship it to you 🙂

Most of the products are the same price as normal products, I believe! I don’t remember the palette prices off hand. I want to say $24.50 for the lip palettes, $34.50 for the eye palettes…

can I use my discount card mac pro membership for this collection?
I’m interested in pigments, and the eyeshadows, eyeshadow is coming cream or normal?

I second that Macpro question…. if you have any idea 🙂
& are the richmetal highlighters like the Metal-X collection??

Def getting a few of those pigments! 🙂

& im on your site trying to find the release dates list for the new Mac collections and i cant seem to come across it 🙁

ok phewww! cause i HATED Metal-X.. one & only Mac product i’ve ever returned… it never stayed on! 🙁 even with primer!

& thanks for the link, your the best! 😀

already saw these @ my Nordstorm……the brush set looks soo cheap(just to let u kno the 187SE was pretty soft tho…but still worth buying the full size brushes better)….i only will be getting a few pigments

one last thing…the only e/s palette that was eh ok…was the one that comes in the blue one.but other than that peeps i would rather save ur money ppl for the other collections that are coming out=]
