Excellent choice… my local BAY store got them in today and the MUA gave me a preview … the nude lip bag is very pretty! he lipglass is very impressive and not like any other l/g i can remember. I ordered my stuff for pick up July 9th. cant wait.

Karla swatched all of these on her blog.

I am pretty sure I want both of the eyeshadow palettes, both lip bags, and the Sweet Tease Look-in-a-Box. UGH! So much money! I’ll just hope that when I go to Nordstroms and swatch the colors that I don’t like them so much (like with the Nordstrom specific quad earlier this year).

I’m definitely looking forward to seeing Christine’s swatches of these too, as the more of the colors I can see, the better! 🙂

I thought I was going to get an eye palette but I’m feeling eyeshadow overload lately. I might just get one of the brush sets as I always feel like those are a good deal.

I want the pink eyeshadow palette for sure… and possibly one of the brush sets or look books pending the canadian price I will have to see how much you save to get them like that 🙂

The eyeshadow palettes are $42 CDN and the look box is 71.50 at the Bay. I put mine on hold today 😀 I didnt ask about the price of the brush sets. just ask at your local Bay store… some of them received their order already – i got to see most of the collection this evening.

the MUA did the math for me… 120-130 if you bought everything individually that comes in the box depending which one you go for since the lip products very in price… plus you get the mini mascara. Also you cant get the 181 on its own. the only LE product is in the lookbox is the one with the beauty powder so thats the one i am getting. as a pro member i can pick up the other stuff at the pro card price later…. i really want the 181!!!

i dont know if its hand or factory made but the bristles and handle are the same quality as the 182… i saw the testers at the bay today … they arent on the counters but some stores already have their stock in and are showing them to those that ask.

Hmmmmm Sun Siren looks like it might be best for tan people……….do you think it would work on someone who is an NC20? heheh

I gotta get the 2 eyeshadow palettes and Sweet Tease Look Box. Maybe Sun Siren too, will see how I feel when I see it in store. I hope my MAC counter at The Bay has it! =)

MAC is killing my wallet ): first my sumo family&friends haul, then this, then their fall black collections ! ahh ! i think i want seductress look box. don’t have anything from that one (:
Christine, do you think you could do swatches on all the things in the look boxes (you probably have them all) haha. If possible please (: Thank you !

How do you go about ordering this collection? Do I just phone up my MAC counter at the Bay and they will put it on hold for me, or do they need a credit card?

Thanks, I am really looking forward to this collection!

i am not sure if this applies to all Bay counters but the one I went to on Queen St Eaton Centre in Toronto simply takes your name and contact info – they will only hold a certain #of products and you have 3 days (ie July 9-12) to go instore to pick it up and pay any way you like. If you want to prepay to guarantee its yours they are selling HBC gift cards for the total value of your purchase to be cashed in when you pick up your order. I would call your local counter and inquire or stop in to see if they are doing the same. They told me they are very limited quantities because there are so many MAC retail stores opening up in Canada they are getting less quantities at the bay from Head office… and even though this collection isnt available at stores they follow the same quantity methodology – less for counters with stores in their region makes it all the more exclusive i guess. i predict even the MUAs from the stores will also head to the bay to get their hands on the palettes because i heard a few of them at my regular store mentioning it. I am on the hold list for graphic garden and sweet tease… I prefer to do it instore that way i saw him write it in their inventory book with my own eyes! Hope this helps.

okay…. this is killing me….. USA and Canada r very lucky! getting any collection 1st lol….

again I’d like to know when or if when this collection going to be released in UK…. because i’d like to mark the dates on my calender! lol serious!…

please can someone advise when in uk its going to be released
