Who cares if the candy man can… it’s the cupcake ingenue who’s caught the sweet spot this season. Temptation is everywhere – luscious, whipped-cream decadent, deliciously decorative frosting colours and sugared almond combinations. Like peering through the window of a Parisian patisserie, you’ll want to become one of each! Have fun with a new Red Velvet recipe Shadestick. Tricolour Lipglass is like a mille feuille of layered lip gloss colours, each gives way to the next in a triple-layered pearl-swirl of prettiness; add extra yum to Eye Shadow; Perfect Topping Mineralize Skinfinish is the ultimate cake walk. We could eat you up.

does MAC really have to do this to me right after HELLO KITTY? this year is brutal on my wallet haha the shadows and shade sticks sound amazing!

I actually don’t know. They’re not *supposed* to mix because of densities (think oil and water and how they settle on each other), but I don’t know if that means you can get one without the other.

From what I saw on the internet, someone wearing a tri colored ligloss from that collection, its all mixed together on the wand, when you put them on. Plus, the packaging is square, not round, from what I saw :'[

I like new collections since I *seem* to have most of what I want from the permanent line. It’s what makes MAC exciting for me!

I’m definitely looking forward to the Shadesticks (why’d the get rid of/cut those back anyways?), check out the non-permanent shadows, and maybe some of the lipsticks. Could be an interesting collection!

No one can explain the things MAC does, LOL. SO many people LOVE Shadesticks, so I haven’t a clue why they removed a ton… like Mangomix!

my guess would be yes since it doesn’t seem to have special packaging. i have a pro card too and am praying it doesn’t have special packaging. haven’t been able to use it lately with edna, hello kitty, etc.. lets hope 🙂 tho i guess that also gives me more incentive to buy which i def dont need!

From what I’ve been told by MAs when I’ve inquired for readers is that your PRO discount will not qualify on “special packaging.” I have no idea if this means special as in only if it’s above and beyond with special printing on packaging, odd packaging shapes, etc. or if it will apply to packaging that’s just another color (think Neo Sci Fi). It would seem that they’re tightening their policies, though.

I have to admit that it looks to me that MAC has been trading off quantity (hence, the enourmous amount of LE collections)at the expense of quality (many e/s, l/g and l/s are barely pigmented &/or chalky, or there are too many products of similar shades). I, for one, already have so many MAC products that I probably could open my own store… LOL I feel that I can skip most of the stuff of the LE collections nowadays. What I have found myself a lot more interested into lately (lust6ing after)is MACPRO stuff! I have a huge list of what I want! It seems to me that many of them are more pigmented bcz they are used by pros for photo shoots, etc. I really think that I would not be disappointed in the MacPro products.

oooh wheee! Im totally lovin’ this collection, but right after HELLO KITTY? mac is fo’sure eating my money away!
I can’t wait to see some pics of this collection. the tri’color lipglass, MSF & shadesticks sound great! & the promo pic for this collection is beautiful, full of color & very yummy! saw it yesterday in the spring launches book at my local mac counter.

lash 34, is that new? cause im not sure if it is or not.

Is Seasonal Peach a repromote?

I’m kinda excited for this collection. It seems like it’s going to be a completely from anythign MAC has ever released with the new glosses and stuff

Seems like a lot of repromotes! Which is sort of good cause I’m pretty broke haha! I was just thinking I’m wondering when they will repromote lollipop lovin because I ADORE that lipstick… I don’t think I’ll have run out of it by then but it’s still good to know I could get a backup!!

um… my list is already made for this. i want: saint germain, consume me, and perfect topping.


OMG this sounds amazing. I love any beauty product that looks like, is named after, or is influenced by delicious desserts. I can’t wait. I’m especially looking forward to the polish.

I’m really looking forward to this collection. I just recently gotten addicted to MAC and I though Hello Kitty would be my first “special” collection, but (don’t hurt me!!) I don’t care for the packaging that much! It doesn’t give a classic HK feel to me… It seems more “60s-mod-HK”. Anyway, after missing out on Barbie, Fafi, Heatherette, Manish, and sort of HK, I’m getting excited for this! Too bad they’re not going to have crazy packaging.

I am so excited about this collection! I LOVE pastels/sugar/cupcakes/candy. I think I’m gonna have to get it all, but i’ll be sooo broke…

Question: do any of ya’ll know if the shadesticks are similar in texture to paint pots? Is it possible to use a brush (like 242 maybe) to apply the shadestick?

oh,i want Lollipop loving,one of the tri-color lipgloss, and maybe the Refined MSF. thank god it comes out in Asia in April,so i got time to save my money!

btw, is this collec. gonna have LE packaging? i hope it does!

since hello kitty is gonna kill my wallet
im thinking of just getting
-Perfect topping MSP
-Lollipop loving lipstick
-Aquavert E/S
-Dear Cupcake E/S

and save the rest of that money for grand duos.. mac is seriously killing me this year.. =S

Of course this has to come out right before my trip to chicago. Darn it. I’ve never used a shadestick because I got really into MAC later and they only had nuetrals to choose from.. I’m not a neutral girl. I’m excited about this one, almost as much as HK. Darn it…

I’m thinking…
Dear Cupcake E/S
Lollipop Loving l/s
Red velvet s/s
Penny s/s

I am in love with lipglasses, but I don’t know…I’ve seen swatches of the tricolours and they look odd to say the least

finally a collection that seems promising! the last 5 or so collections that theyve put out just didnt do it for me… even hello kitty seemed like a bust!

the msf’s sound great & the promo pics on specktra make me swoon. right now i pretty much want it all! haha

OMG im so excited for this!! it sounds delish!! 🙂
christine, do you think they will have special packaging? i hope so!!
i picture it white with cute pink cupcakes or something!
how sweet would that be?
yay!! im so excited for this 🙂 i NEED pictures! lol 🙂

This collection sounds much better than Hello Kitty! I’m actually pretty excited about this collection. I can’t wait lol. Good thing I’m not planning to buy much from HK 🙂

Just tried to buy some of the new hello kitty products and they were all released today. Some places were already sold out in Tampa, Florda. A Dillards store in Columbus, Georgia sold out of a lot of things and they started today at 12 noon and by 7:00 pm. half of the products. Also some of the accessories online are already sold out. Now how do we get them if they sold out before they were ever on sale.

I just want to say that what you do Christine is amazing! Unfortuantely, I discovered Temptalia about 2 weeks ago, I say unfortunately because I cant pull myself away from it, your site is truly a Godsend!! I have to buy all of my Mac cosmetics online, therefore I never get to see them first so I am constantly guessing and returning. Since I found your site I have spent almost 300 dollars on Mac LE lipsticks and lipgloss on ebay. I love pinkish and nude lipsticks, the more shimmer the better. I think I love the same color family as you do. I also wanted to mention that your doggie is adorable!! I have 4 Beagles myself. I was hoping you could answer a few questions for me…

Does your favorite lipgloss Cle de Peau Lip Gloss #2 have any brownish tint to it at all. I really want to try it but the smallest hint of brown does not work for me.

What is your favorite nude lipstick? I am really loving fleshpot, I do have to work with it a bit. I was excited to try High tea but it shows up a bit brown on me.

What camera did you use for your beautiful doggie pictures? They are so clear and vibrant. I use a fuji 900 but yours is fabulous!

I know I’ve gone too far now so I will stop writing and get back to some more Mac reviews!

oh my god , another collection, geez mac’s hello kitty pretty much destoyed my wallet or shall we say cc. im excited though as always. not too sure about the tricolored lipglasses, the pictures looks a bit odd, almost like they went bad. but i want to get the e/s Sugarshot , Dear Cupcake, Aquavert, and Stars n Rockets. The lippies, exspecially lollypop loving , since i heard thats a popular lipstick, the msf and maybe the nailpolish.

Can’t wait this collection looks so fun and fresh. Do u know if there will be special packaging for this collection or just regular mac packaging??

I am liking the dear cupcake e/s. It looks similiar to paradisco but the finish is different and i do love the color. I love the perfect topping msf as well. Im kinda divided on the shadesticks….
