Pat McGrath’s gold liner is definitely the idea behind this one! The eye palette is cool toned for once and quite interesting but not as ‘wow’ as Flamingo Park or MUFE Florals vol 3. The grey lipstick is too directional for me and I don’t really do nude lippies lol. Very tempted to get the gold liner though, just to be different, lol!

I like MAC’s x9 palettes because they’re compact and just the right amount of product. This palette looks pretty in the promo pic, hope it’s a good one!

I think this is a good idea. I have never heard of these young women before. So, this is certainly a good way to get them some recognition and get their names out there. I would have like to see these products in the stores too though. They probably would sell pretty well.

I have to agree with you, Katherine. I have NO idea who these women are(I’m 48) and the quality of recent MAC collections makes this a huge pass for me.

I’m 31 and I only know Tinashe ? .. had to search for the rest on instagram / google.

I’m upset with the outcome of the collaberations .. where and when would I ever wear that lipstick and the gold liner! I’m not a lipglass girl so, the only hope is the eyeshadows work!

You can tell I’m old because I don’t know who any of them are except Halsey, and I don’t know what she’s famous for — I’ve just heard of her once or twice!

I’m liking the gold liner – definitely a nod toward Pat McGrath on that one, also the shadow x9 looks good, but we’ll see how it performs.

Incidentally, how come we call quads quads, quints quints, and not x9 nonets? I kinda like the sound of “nonet”. 😀

I’m so looking forward to seeing how the Tinashe eyeshadow palette and Dej Loaf lipglass do! I really love the look of both, so here’s hoping they work as well as they look.

Definitely getting the grey lipstick if it gets a good review! I’m seeing grey lippies popping up everywhere these days – even Smashbox (?!) has one now!!! Grey is the new purple I guess!

I love Tinashe, but the palette isn’t me. I will get the Dej Loaf lip glass tho. Looks really pretty and I am a fan. Cool to see Mac work with artist that aren’t super hyped up. No shade just saying..!

I am really pleased that MAC has used four talented women of colour to promote their products. That gold eye liner is beautiful. I hope the quality of the products matches the talent of the girls.

I too fail the hipster test. I don’t know who any of them are but 4 people make 4 collections for a total of 4 products . Hmmm. Btw, Flamingo Park NOT having flamingoes or even pink special packaging or something will eternally bum me out. Unbreak my heart MAC…see! You can’t! ?

i hope ‘halsey’ reviews well, not really my shade but she’s a really promising artist. if it looks pretty enough i might think about getting it.

None of the products are super revolutionary, but it’s great to see four women of color being represented. I just wish they could have each had their own separate campaign, with more products (even if i was permanent/repromotes).

I don’t know these singers very well, but this collection from Mac looks great! So different them some other collections. I really want the gold liner and am tempted by the Halsey lipstick
