Holy cow…that quad is awesome blossom! Wow Christine – thanks for sharing all these pics about summer releases! I’m going to be saving, saving, saving! I love EVERYTHING!

hey shefali, i believe pandamonium is a repromote from balloncy. Also the blue eye liner (but not too sure abt this one)

Christine, do you know the colours that make up the quad?

I agree with you Christine. Luckily I am new to MAC and do not own satin taupe. I have been wanting to get it, thankfully I have been patient.How often to they include already permanent colors in quads? Also what collection did rose blanc come out in?

I called my local Nordstrom’s but unfortunately they don’t let you preorder :(( lol they just told me it will be out on Thursday anyways thank for responding 🙂

When I saw the pic of the quad.. I instantly fell in love =) LOVE the quad. The single eyeshadows are awesome too! Thank you for sharing Christine!!

SO excited about this.
I’m a sucker for anything nautical.
It’s about time they have a crazy blue polish again.. I miss the old Sailor Boy I believe it was. It was my fav back in highschool

Yummy. I hope this launch gets bumped up a week early. On April 29th I’m gone for a month to Ethiopia/Israel and I won’t get to play with it! *sad face*

WOW! I am blown away by this collection. I want nearly everything, save the liners & one of the l/gs. Wow wow wow.

And whats this Stowaways? Is this just a quad or part of yet anooother collection? I love that yellow!

I thought the quad would reflect the colours used on the model’s eye – I guess that’s what the pigments/eyeshadows are for *sigh*… Now that just cuts my lemmings down to the lustreglasses

This is making me crazy, when will it ever stop?! I can´t go on wanting everything from every collection! I´m going to end up on the street (with lots of nice make up at least)! MAC will surely be my downfall!

Oh wow! i hope this comes to the UK as well, I love nearly everything in this collection, especially the pigments – Mutiny is stunning! :o)

It’s probably because I don’t have as much time as I did in the beginning (I started when I was in my last year of undergrad-and I had sooo much free time). I post every look I do, but I just don’t do looks everyday anymore 🙁

I see that the sky blue pigment’s name is changed from seawave to mutiny… I love the name SeaWave but I think Mutiny sounds hotter! Like make up with a vengence! Brings chaos to the world! HA!

oh my! i love the name – naughty nauticals! so cute! =) i’m definitely getting the blue nail lacquer & one of those lustreglasses 🙂 way to go m.a.c! *thank u christine for all ur infor!*

What is that quad at the very end? It is beautiful!!! I really want that one, plus I feel I will buy a lot from this collection.

wow! this is the first time in a while i have wanted so much from a MAC collection! i def want 3/4 of the pigments (already have lovely lily), I have my eye on two of the lipsticks (the first and the red one – still on my quest to find a nice red that isn’t too shocking) and the first two eyeshadows (the neutral and purple-ish one), finally something exciting!!!

Only pigments and eyeshadows catch my eyes
Teal color looks amazing!
but blue is something i rarely use with..
again..BUT mayb i can work it out as the color is so nice to be passed!

I love your website, I look at it all the time!!! I was invited to this event at my mall, it’s next week, so I was really excited to see all of this ahead of time! I’m not sure if you’d know this, but do you have to be a professional makeup artist to work at MAC? I have no professional experience whatsoever, but I consider myself to be pretty good with makeup and I know with some training I could be really good. Just wondering if I should give it a shot, cause I absolutely LOVE makeup!

Hey Marie! Thanks so much!

Ohh, fun! I hope you enjoy the event.

Nope, you don’t have to be a professional at all. TBH, retail experience/selling experience is always a great thing to have for being a MAC MA.

Hi Mari, no this is not true. It is a Nordstrom’s exclusive quad–I know for a few Nordie’s employees have seen the quad in the US, too!

I asked my nordie’s MA and she know nothing about the quad. I told her it was with the nauty nauticals stowaways and she acted she did not know. So I’m confused is the nauty nauticals and stowaways in the same collection??

I heard a rumor that the brown in the quad is Satin Taupe? I adore that colour, but I bought the smoke signals from last summer and it already has that colour in it D: It drives me nuts when they repremote colours because I can’t justify buying the quad unless all 4 colours are new for me… and they just did Satin Taupe, too! Is it common for them to reuse some colours more than others?

thats a relief cos i ADORE this collection.
in this collection i’m after:
-all 4 pigments
-buoy o buoy liptick
-meet the fleet, submarine & illegal cargo shadow
-Bateaux and Hey Sailor gloss.

Lets hope I have some bday money left over from my London trip. Happy 18th to me on 26th April 🙂 Haha. Wahey I can legally drink and enroll for mac pro.

I work at the mall and went to the MAC counter on break and they had just unpacked the display for this line so I was able to see and swatch the collection a little early! The pigments are AMAZING!!!! The shadows are really cool too, the blue is kind of close to the freshwater. I will get a lot of the stuff out of this line. It is by far the best one this year.

I went to my mac store yesterday and one artist there who i get along with very well (lol) brung me to the back and showed me the new collection its comeing out this week at my store and im going sat after noon after i get paid and prob get it alll i cant waite

I had a chance to see the line yesterday at a MAC event in NYC! The line is gorgeous!!! I wanted to purchase almost everything. The Lustreglasses are so pretty. Perfect for Spring.

Pandemonium is a re-release from 2006 Christmas Quad Im looking into the other colors to see if they are. They always just reintroduce colors in a “new” collection just like with Fafi & Heatherette.

Yeah, it’s a repromote 🙂 But since it was a LE color, there are still plenty of those who didn’t snatch it up.

The quad is only being released at Nordstom’s which as we know is called Stowaway. The shades are Satin Taupe (available separately) and 3 palette-exclusives: Awash, Crest the Wave and Sea-Cadet.

yay It’s out 2 days early just like the lady said on the phone :))0 Im so happy I just got the pigments and the shadows now my boyfriends going to kill me lol when he finds out
