We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

Ever notice how totally photoshopped and off the pics like this are from MAC? That’s why I have to go to sites that swatch, and take real pictures. Because MAC puts out some crappy pics. (Sorry, this is TOTALLY not your fault Temptalia! I know you’re just providing us with everything you can, and we love you for it!) I can’t wait for swatches! Even though I know what I want to get! (and what I just can’t afford! LOL!)

i honestly didnt want any of the eye liners, but now seeing it makes me want one! specially that purple and brown one!!! as well as the nail products… but im loving the silver one!

Hey Tatiana – If you can you should check out the eyeliners…they are AWESOME IMO. I felt the same way as you until I swatched them last week.

Is this the correct order for the lipsticks pictured? Lollip Loving, Fleshpot, Hollywood Nights & Melrose Mood
And then for the lipglasses: Bonus Beat, Sock Hop, Style Minx & Starlet Kiss?

Christine, I’m just wondering, when new launches come out do you buy EVERYTHING in the line and return what you don’t want? Or do you just sample like crazy in the store and buy only what you love?
Thanks!

oh god people PLEASE do not buy it all then return what you don’t want. Its wasteful as MAC throws out returns. And then eventually our prices will rise….again.

Ladies: What’s the good word on the liners? I haven’t purchased any of these in the past but I am salivating so bad over them I think I want all 4. Can someone give me a heads up as to the color payoff? Are they fairly long-wearing? What about the glitter end? Is there a good glitter payoff as well on these? Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Annie – I was sooo on the fence about these too! I swatched them last week and I LOVED them. I thought the color payoff was good…not as good as a Fluidline or a Kohl Power, but pretty good. The glitter end has a good amount of glitter too, along with color. I don’t like too much glitter b/c it irritates my eyes if any piece falls in, so I liked that they were in the pencil and not loose. The only one that I was iffy on was Phone Me/Text Me (I think it’s the one with black and white on the end). All of this is IMHO of course.

I think the teal and brown pencils are in order for me, as well as lollipop loving and trio 1! I’m not getting away from this one too easy. The lashes are super cute!

I’m uberly excited. The silver glitter interests me, though I’m not sure how I could possibly use a whole jar of the stuff in my lifetime. Can’t wait for that swatch!

They are not waterline safe. Hence the reason I’m not buying any–the only liner i use is for my waterline. Shame, since they’re so pretty 🙁

I think I’m going to buy three of each and every product!!! How wonderfully delightful and exciting. I can barely eat/breathe/sleep just thinking about the minutes until Heatherette hits the stores!

ohhhh I am soooo excited about this launch!! Everything looks so amazingly beautiful in its pink packaging 🙂 I still haven’t figured out how I am going to do the Birthday and Heatherette.

Me too!! I have no clue, Tanya! I’m sure you’ll figure out a way to make it happen… if all else fails, ask them to put one of everything on hold and then pick and choose when you get there!

This is one MAC line I’m going to stay away from. I saw all of the colors about two weeks ago when I stopped by the color and the SAs were playing around with them. Too bright for me, but I love the packaging.

i just saw the site this morning and i’m so tempted to order but i usually don’t because i really want to see it in person. it’s helpful to have swatches but even more helpful when you can describe the color and texture. but i’m also worried that they might sell out items that i really want. i know i’m definitely getting alpha girl. i can’t decide on the trios, it depends which one has the most unique color as i can wear both. i’m also on a budget but good thing not all the lip colors will work on me so it’s between the coral and fushia shades. pencils can wait because i really can’t wear any pencil, they always tend to dissappear on me, too bad because i really love the black and teal one. i might get that one.
