This is me.
With my mouth on the floor.
In the middle of my office at work.

Thank you so much for the info!!! Magnetic Fields shadow and the blushes are looking mighty tasty 😀

Christineeeeee…… have made me realize my weakness: Veluxe Pearls! Oh man, you know, usually I’m pretty good with spending (usually) because I’m not so much into the bright colours anymore. I like the more gold/brown/cranberry/pink tones…like the shadows that came out with moonbathe…you know in that colour family. Anyways, because of my preference in shadow colours, I only buy a few here and there from new collections. BUT THIS ONE….totally fits me! Now I know how it feels when people want to buy whole collections but the bank isn’t exactly agreeing! 🙂 Thanks for the info!

LOL! They’re one of my many weaknesses, too. It’s hard to resist them, just because they are so SMOOTH!

all the eyeshadows (except expensive pink which i already own) area MINE!! if they were any other texture i’d think abt it but my weakness, truly is, veluxe pearl. the blushes look interesting too. hmmmm, better start saving.

Why hello pretty products! Eyeshadows (except expensive pink), blushes and sci-fu-delity may have to come home with me… Spaced Out blush WILL BE MINE. Damn seductive orange packaging and finishes!

CHRISTINE!!!!!!! Oh man. After looking at all of this collection info I feel stunned and have a dopey smile on my face. Veluxe Pearls!! And orange compacts eeeeeeeek! :D:D:D:D:D

I know its always hard to tell from these advance product shots, but this looks like it might be one of my favorite collections yet. Sci-fi-delity looks like the best lip EVER. And I love orange, too!

Ohh, good to hear, Carrie! It’s so weird how this launch has such a mixed bag of reactions, but I’m sooo happy that there are those who are like “THIS IS ALL MINE!”

so surprised of how many ppl have turned off by the orange package
for me..its so TURN ME ON!!

i MUST get atleast one of those lippies

not sure bot the eyeshadows and blushes yet

do you think X ROCK blush, would give quite similar color with those bronzer powder in orange package

Oh my gawd, i am freaking drooling here looking at the lovely e/s
Finally new vp e/s!!!!!
And the colours too! I am just speechless.
Think I’m gonna live on crackers and h2o for the next few weeks!!!!

christine, i just bought a couple of e/s on your recommendation, thank you very much! i’m nc400 and i bought juxt, swimming, ricepaper, soft brown, and bronze. i also got bronze powder, sock hop, and oh baby lipglass and a just discontinued lustereglass palatial and a second as a backup since my husband loved it. of course i hide my haul from him. but i want this entire collection and those pigment pots and the volcanic skincare!! ridiculous, i know but this stuff is so gorgeous and the packaging makes me drool. we will all be broke but beautiful and having fun this spring/summer. christine thanks for the heads up so i know when to start saving.

Expensive Pink is not new…. correct? Wonder why they are putting it in w/ this collection. Regardless, I’m excited and can’t wait for it to come out.

Hey Kellie! Expensive Pink is a permanent color – sometimes they repromote or put permanent colors in launches. No real clue WHY they do this, to be honest!

So far I’m getting Astral l/s, supreme l/g, Pink Grapefruit l/g and X Rocks blush but I am wondering how Electro lipstick would be, do u think it’ll be a bright orange or sheer??

Also is Evening Aura yellow???

I am sooooo SIKED!! for this collection!!! I can’t wait!! I liked this one a little more than Naughty Nauticals!! But don’t get me wrong I am going to check out Naughty Nauticals!!

Hi Christine!! I hope you are having a great weekend so far!! I was wondering in this collection of Neo-Sci-Fi which colors are colors that you personally think are versatile and a MUST have?? I think you and I have similar taste in MAC shadows and pigments. We also are willing to try colors that most people would shy away from. I would love to know your thoughts.

Hey Yvette! I really don’t know since I haven’t played with it. I usually don’t make any calls until I swatch!

Initially, I thought this collection was going to be really disappointing… but I definitely think I’m starting to change my mind now. Those eyeshadows will make for some GORGEOUS neutral looks! And the blushes look really nice too 😛

OMG!!! I came by my local MAC counter & I got to play the spaced out blush, soft & slow lipglass and the 3 bright nail polishes (phosphor, neon 8 & plasma blue) today! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! They’ll let me play with the rest of the stuff when it comes in. (I’m a regular =) Didn’t i just drop $200 on naughty nauticals yesterday?

Eeeeek! I love the orange packaging. I love almost everything in this collection. A great collection for summer 🙂 Thanks for putting this up, it’s always so great to see things before they are out 🙂
