wow those are really pretty
i want top hat, smoke and diamonds, glamour check, mink & sable, bold and brazen
when do these come out?

Definitely! I believe they are due in August, potentially earlier (maybe late July?). Some MAC stores are already getting some of their stock in for Electroflash and the like.

No official release date, just speculation for August or thereabouts. I think it’ll end up being July, though.

It seems most of these shadows are Frost finish. Wow. I really need to see swatches 😉 Just looking at these pictures though, I really do seem to like MINK & SABLE (Frosty olive green–frost) , and SMOKE & DIAMONDS (Frosty dirty taupe–frost). I just hope the green in MINK & SABLE is not very similar to GREENSMOKE (Tarnished olive–lustre). Overall, they seem like very cool shadows so yay and thanks to Debbie and Christine for posting the pictures!

I believe they’re prety much ALL frost finishes, which may or not be a good thing. I wish they were VPs 🙁

Me again 🙂 So… I was looking at the last three shadows and it made me wonder how TALENT POOL (Frosty blue green with gold pearl–frost) , SUNSET B (Frosty clean mid-tone pink–frost), and TOP HAT (Frosty dirty indigo–frost) all compare to the shadows that came out in the HEATHERETTE trio compacts 1 and 2 (you know the pink, aqua, and purple shadows)????? I can’t wait to find out, altough just by looking at it… TALENT POOL looks more blue than TEAL so it may not be anywhere close… oh well.

It’ll be interesting to see how everything compares to past and existing shadows — I know some were not bowled over by these!

These are all frosts, but supposedly there is a new formula (like with the Mattene release).

They all look so pretty, but the proof is in the swatch.

Top Hat and Glamour Check really stand out for me.

i think my heart just skipped beat.

off the bat i’m digging Go, Mink and Sable, Grand Entrance, Smoke & Diamonds, and Top Hat.

can’t wait!!!!

Oh lord. Dream Maker, Bold & Brazen, Go, Grand Entrance, and Glamour Check (if they come out like they do in the pot and aren’t a hot, frosty, 80’s mess) may have to be mine. Mink and Sable and Top Hat are a maybe. Def. need swatches before I pounce!

i think top hat and smoke & diamond look kinda neat. i’ll have to see a swatch of these shadows before i decide =] make is gonna make me break the bank one of these days…

Well since eyeshadows are my weakness, I’ll probably get quite a few, but Mink & Sable, Go, Top Hat, Smoke & Diamonds & Grand Entrance look the most promising to me.

I’m definitely not getting the blues. Lotusland, Top Hat, and Glamour Check look great. Smoke & Diamonds also pretty but I’ll have to wait and see…

wow. they are gorgeous! but yeah.. as everyone else said (and you too Christine), swatches make all the difference! i can’t wait till we get some!! 😀

Chris, maybe its my phone but go looks like tempting.with less sparkle? Talent pool & star by night I need to see swatched because it looks dupeable so far.

But im likein bold & brazen ; grand entrance ; glamour check & sunset b.

whatever hook ups debbie has, I need too have god!

swatches please!
thx chris btw.

I would be jumping up & down if these were all VPs instead of Frosts!!!! But I am excited just the same, some of these look really gorgeous. There is a great variety of shades, which I like. I can’t wait to see swatches!

LOL, you & me both. I don’t mind frosts – it’s one of my preferred finishes, so we’ll see how it goes!

Wow these are really boring.

Of course, I’ll reserve total judgement until I can try them out myself, but these just look…done.

This is what several people are saying, actually! It might also be that we’ve been SO inundated with collections in the past few months that it’s hard for anything to be particularly original.

I can’t wait for these. My list has everything on it except for Lotusland, Bold & Brazen, Sunset B. I’m really excited for Mink & Sable and Smoke & Diamonds.

I really like Lotusland, Smoke & Diamonds, Glamour Check, Grand Entrance and Mink & Sable. I need more neutral tones in my collection so this might be a good collection for me. Of course I need to see some swatches before I really decide.

Ooooh!! I’m sure Lotusland will be on my list and probably Mink & Sable as that fits into some of my favorite looks (green/gold/olivey stuff). I want to see swatches of Top Hat, Talent Pool and Star by Night and comparisons to similar colors to see if I *need* those or not. They’re colors I love but might already have something similar to. I could use some more neutrals so I’ll be waiting on swatches of the rest too! Love having the preview!!!

So many nice ones! I’ll have to see them in person though. I looked at swatch after swatch for cool heat and neo scifi and was like, not interested in NSF and want everything from Cool Heat and when I got to the store it was the opposite! I liked the cool heat, but I didn’t think I would actually use them whereas the NSF was so much better in person.

Wow, these are very pretty. In fact I like them more than the Cool Heat Collection. Cool Heat is not yet released here in Singapore so from the product pictures, I like the Starflash eyeshadows more. BTW I’m a new MAC addict and your blog get me very excited. Thanks!

so priddddyyy.
i wanna see swatches but atm, i only see about 2 that i DON’T want.
i hate being in the uk sometimes though. we still havent got cool heat! grrr!

I’m intrigued by “Smoke & Diamonds”…but the more and more I look at these numerous new product launches, the more I see repeat colors…MAC is scamming me and it’s working! Can’t wait to see swatches!

Does anyone know when this launches? Is it just a MAC store thing? I was reading US Weekly and Christina Auguilerra said that her favorite eye shadow is smoke and diamond, which is how I stumbled across this blog!
