Yay info πŸ™‚
Hey Christine it seems as if the last few months info on upcoming Mac collections has been really hard to come by… What exactly happened???

ALPHA GIRL! I loved it so much in the Heatherette collection, I bought two. Thank goodness it’s coming back, I need another!

This sounds like a cute collection. Can’t wait for your pix and swatches, Christine. πŸ˜€

:O Everhip NEED this time round!!

Why do MAC keep trying to promote Penultimate liner.. it’s an OK liner but it’s so pricey for what it is…

I need Mlle lipstick (because it’s all the rage and beautiful), all the lip gelees, and both beauty powders. Oh my aching wallet πŸ™

Really hope this collection has fun packaging, am I the only one who thinks MAC has been lacking on they’re packaging for their collections?

I’m mostly interested in the lipsticks w/this collection. Summer Shower, Mille & GrowingTend are calling my name.
I’m impatiently waiting for photos & more information on the upcoming collections for late Summer early Fall.

aaaaaaahhh i was hoping to see a repromote of ever hip!!!i will definitely get it!!!
i was also hoping for jazzed…but they look similar!!!

I am definately going to pick up three tubes of ever hip! I loved it so much last spring and I have been afraid to use it often for fear of running out.

So does this mean that Big Bounce, Fashion Flower and Surf Baby will all be released in the same month? Oye!

Dear wallet: I am so sorry.

Nothing is jumping out at me with this collection which is a relief cause I will be saving my money for big bounce shadows and surf baby crush metal pigments. I wish they would release some lip legelees

VERY excited about Ever Hip! I missed the boat last time. I’m thinking I’ll get Alpha Girl depending on the packaging. I hated Quite Cute so maybe this will redeem MAC Spring/Summer for me.

ANOTHER COLLECTION? holy molly! I’m glad I didn’t buy anything from Quite Cute.
I like the sounds of Ever Hip, and it sounds like I might have to get up early and snag it because it sounds popular.

Other than that,I’m not going to get my hopes up. The last collection was very disappointing…

I’m eager at least to see Groundcover. Mac needs a good matte grey and I want to see if this one is it. A few of the other items sound interesting but probably not things I will rush out to buy!

Pass on everything!! I bought two of Ever Hip (love it so much) when it was released originally and I still have half of the first one left and the second remains unused. I don’t think I need a third lol. I’m really trying to not get sucked into buying more makeup and using what I have!!

I want to see pics, but I know I will be passing on most of this collection. I want budding beauty lip gelee and free to be eyeshadow – which I can get at any time. Im waiting on the collection thats coming out in July -the Mineralized collection

I have Ever Hip and don’t really get the hype… It’s ok I suppose but I find I’m always layering it with different liners and glosses to try to get it to look how I’d like, and it never quite works. I’ve seen it look great on some people though so maybe it’s my colouring.

I might get Summer Shower because I always do that with silly colours, even though I never use them! Apart from that, Alpha Girl sounds very nice, and maybe Bows & Curtseys and Groundcover. I wish they’d stop putting Penultimate in every collection – it’s not even a very good product!

Oh, and Lucky Green should be a must-buy for anyone who doesn’t already have it!

Totally agree with you. I have Ever Hip and rarely reach for it. I think I have the same problem with not being able to coordinate it with anything.

omg mlle (madamoiselle) was my second ever mac lipstick eight years ago,i didnt understand about limited collections then so never thought about getting a back up,its such an amazing colour. im so happy.

Ahh SO EXCITED for new Lip Gelees! I’ve been waiting for them to come out in a collection but have been disappointed that the past few ones have been sheer sparkly stuff. πŸ™ I’m hoping these Lip Gelee’s are as pigmented as my old HG lip gelee (which I have long forgotten what the name is). Can’t wait to see the promo pictures!

Yeah…it’s really super sheer and sparkly and can be worn over or under any other lip product to create a nice teal shimmer effect. Definitely not like Peacocky, this one will actually be really wearable.

I’ll most likely only be getting Fresh Daisy. However, if Bows and Curtseys is more pigmented/better formula than in the Tartan Tale palette I’ll be picking it up as well since in the pan it was beautiful.

I think I need to see this collection in person before I decide if I need anything, but I do know I’ll be buying a backup of Ever Hip I hardly use the one I have because I don’t want to run out of it.

AHH! I’m so happy! I missed out on Ever Hip last year and now this time I’ll be getting it for sure! I might get Mlle as well. I’ve only seen one picture of it and it looks nice! I’m actually excited about the collections you’ve posted about after the Surf Baby collection! I’m really excited!!

Hi Christine, is Mlle lipstick short for Mademoiselle lipstick? Since it’s a repromote, I’ve been looking for this color all over the internet but I can’t find it. Which MAC Collection did it come in last time, and in which year also? Thanks!

I will have to keep my eye out for this, despite my hatred of florals. Love that MAC is continuing their personal blue-lip trend, but disappointed to see it sheer again. Also, does anyone else feel like To the Beach JUST happened? Ha ha.

omg, this collection is so much closer to coming out than surf baby but we already know what surf baby will look like πŸ™
do you know when you might find out more about fashion flower?
i know for sure i’m getting the 2 beauty powders and ever hip πŸ™‚

my poor wallet:/ i really want a bueaty powder blush cause i don’t have one
i really want an eyeshadow too
but i also want a lot from the surf baby collection
like the blush, eyeshadows and blue eyeliner
…oy its too pricy its like 100$ right there…i only have 30 to spend lol well i guess i have to break open my piggybank too …..

A MAC artists told me today that this collection is going to be released on 4/28 instead of 5/5. This is because Cute Collection sold out so fast.

I am really interested in the beauty powders and maybe the lipstick Mlle. Ever Hip is already mine and I love it! The other two colours are not my colors I think :).

We should all go on a MAC strike…or at least I will!! Ever Hip, Alpha girl, Free to Be…do they all sound familiar? C’mon MAC! I despise re-promotes except Feline eye kohl. Putting an imprinted flower on top doesn’t make it any different.

i am so excited for this collection, sadly i don’t get my allowance till may 15th, so i’m just praying to god this won’t be as popular and i can get my hands on groundcover e/s, & budding beauty lip gelee!! hopefully i will get lucky and there will still be in stock on the website or in store!

Wow! The photo shoot looks so classy and vintage..Cant say anything right now abt the collection as it appears be for cooler skin tones which I am not. But overall loving the whole presentation very much!

I don’t think your Lieing at all Please don’t think that, I was just saying that I think it’s odd it’s not on the pro site and wanted to let you is all, I would ever think ur lieing sorry you though that

What’s with the horrible grammar in the collection description?? Is MAC in such a hurry to release this stuff and they forget to proof-read?

MAC this is so not fair! How can you launch a collection 3 months ahead of the international launch date? By the time they get to us, it will be old news, and I’m so not paying for shipping.

Unfreakingbelievable. I’ve gone by the date listed on here (April 28) as the official launch date for this. I literally just got an email promoting the collection an hour ago, logged onto the website, and Ever Hip (the only thing I wanted) is already gone! I mean, what’s the point if things are going to disappear that quickly? It’s as if their biggest goal is to get their dedicated customers to go on a big rat race just to get the things they want. I’m so turned off by this. It’s ridiculous.

April 28th is in-store launch date, and online typically launches 1-3 days prior but they don’t give out an exact time/date for that!

Yeaaah, I think that’s what got me so heated. They never give an exact time for online launches so those of us who are sleeping or at work miss out. I called my local Macy’s counter and was told they were only given 5 Ever Hip lipsticks! Craziness! The manager was nice enough to tell me to call back tomorrow morning and have them hold on to one for me until I can get there after work. The things we go through in the name of makeup. Eeesh!

I was sad that Ever Hip was already sold out online. I have it on hold for when it launches at my local counter. The only other thing I got was the groundcover eyeshadow. The summer shower lipstick looks interesting in the tube but I don’t like it on the lips πŸ™

I’m definitely getting my hands on Aqua and Groundcover eyeshadows, and I can’t decide between Fashion Flower and Budding Beauty Lip Gelees… Heaven knows I’ll end up getting both!

Good evening,

I am truly bummed out by this collection and the Flight Collection and wanted to express my concerns and was interested in hearing other people’s opinions. The color selection for the current, Fashion Flower Collection, for lack of a more intelligent word, sucked. The selection was strange and limited. Maybe the colors looks good on Asian skin tones like the not “Too Cute” collection which was another big dissapointment in my opinion. It had so much potential too! They could have knocked it out of the park with that theme.

Here’s the deal. I admit that I am a very fair skinned, blonde, white woman and those colors made me look like a circus clown. I put on the mint green lipstick and thought I was starring in my own little freak show. I mean mint green? Really MAC?

MAC, please get your act together and at least make the packaging cute (like pink with flowers,or a cool design, etc). I don’t know what is going on at MAC but they have had two lame collections launched since the amazing Wonder Woman collection.

From what I have seen of the upcoming, Beach Babe, Summer 2011 collection, with the cheap, “Target”, white packaging, I am worried I will be underwhelmed once again.

If MAC is considering a new Creative Director, which they may want to think about, I would gladly step in and design some killer new collections (think Heatherette & Liberty of London type collections/packaging but cooler) and continue the MAC brand legacy. I would ensure that MAC will not lose their title of “Queen of all things Cool”, make up brand.

I am just worried that MAC Corporate, (Estee Lauder) are losing their edge and letting shit slip. Perhaps they are trying to appeal to a younger, Asian, market.. Who knows? I am hoping they will get back in the game coming this Fall 2011. Only time will tell! xoxo Summer

I disagree. Mac are releasing loads of different collections to appeal to different people. For example, I am very pale and loved the champale and quiet cute collections as they suited my skintone. The bronzed collection didn’t suit me but I am sure looks fab on darker skinned ladies. Also I love the new formulas of the sheen supreme lipsticks and the pen highlighters but don’t like blue eyeshadow and there skipped the jeanious collection. I am not mad on limited edition packaging so I skipped wonder woman but I know loads of other people loved it. If I had any criticisms it would be that the formula on limited products can be hit or miss some times but not often and also I would love to see more bright coloured fluidlines, paint pots and pigments!

I feel bad, totally owe you and everyone an apology regarding my comment above. It came far too harsh.

The truth is, you are right, there are some good colors in the collections. I guess my real complaint is that my local MAC counter in Seattle, WA at Nordstrom is sold out of all the best colors/products within a day! I wish they would re-up their inventory and then I could sample/buy the few colors I do like, for instance, St. Germain lipstick, Alpha Girl, and Bows & Courtseys eye shadow. I swear ever color I ever really want is sold out. It bums me out. I do apologize though, I hope I did not offend MAC or anyone, I was just irritated because I never was able to locate the Marquis’d lipstick or the Pink Powder Bronzer from the Wonder Woman collection and I spend hours searching everywhere and Online.

The Beach Babe collection will be cool, I was just not to jazzed about the packaging. (I am one of those people who are into special edition packaging for some reason.)

Cheers,
Summer
Seattle, WA

Ah I know what you mean. I got the last quad from quiet cute in the shop I was in and that was on the day it launched! They should defo be given alot more stock when it launches. I will prob be skipping the next few collections and saving up for the semi precious launch. Any photos I have seen so far are amazing! And I forgot to mention in my last post that prob the best collection to date this year has been Peacocky! Such cool colours and formula!

Bought Summer shower ( love it on it’s own or layered over another lipstick) and Budding Beauty lipgelee. Both are beautiful. I bought another EverHip for my daughter as she doesn’t want to run out when her EH from the Liberty of London Collection runs out. The 2 other lip gelees are very pretty, too. Nothing else in the collection was that interesting to me. Anxiously awaiting the Surfer collection coming out soon.

Damn! Not really sure how I feel when I loot at this model. She looks pretty dead with all the flowers around her and that cool/nude makeup *^.^* I like the collection though.
