I looking to get the Kids Helping Kids Teddy Bear Ornament this year. I’m not a fan of the Gaga shades but that is an awesome set for those that like the shades. ^__^

I want Cyndi to return some day.

I have wanted to get my hands on another Viva Glam Gaga for AGES now…I’ll probably end up getting two of those lip bags. Huge Gaga fan, just can’t resist! Plus it goes to a great cause 😀

That bear is so cute – I’m pretty sure he’ll be mine, too!

Rainy Avatar

I am so tempted to get the Gaga set, just for a backup of the pink shade. Sadly I know I would never wear the nude shade and don’t know anyone I could give it to.

Sometimes I really hate limited edition.

I like the idea behind this, but why so many collections for the holiday? I seriously don’t mind MAC coming out with a collection every 4-6 months, but I feel that it’s a bit ridiculous to come out with 3-4 collections all around the same time. I’ve gotten disinterested with MAC collections because they constantly have so many coming out that it’s too overwhelming to keep up with. I hope I didn’t anger anyone because of my feelings about this though… 🙁

Maria Avatar

I think they do a lot of collections because they understand we don’t all have the same taste! I didn’t love surf baby so I skipped most of it. Just pick what you love from each collection, you don’t have to get the entire collection! I loved Quite Cute but didn’t want any of the shades!

Lark Avatar

Ever notice different collections look better on different skin tones? Or they used to. Every other one had things for me.

But they do way too many collections now and a lot of them are boring. I’m not buying much- it’s just a bunch of uncohesive stuff thrown together. This Holiday is even worse than last year. One thing interests me. One!

Chantal Avatar

OK, that bear is adorable, but did they really have to place that “ornament” like that in the pictures? I mean, REALLY. I know I’ve got a dirtier mind than most people. BUT – a large, dangling pink and chrome…ornament…between his legs? Who proofs these pictures?!

Kat Avatar

Awwwww, I want the silver teddy bear! I’m probably going to get the Viva Glam lip bag too, I want to try both the shades so this is perfect!
I love how MAC really seems to care about giving back, I wish more brands would do this.

Hannah Avatar

Loving the ornament! I have a small pre-lit pink christmas tree decorated with silver ornaments. A few of those teddy bears hanging on it would be adorable. Excited!

Chris Avatar

My local MAC counter told me this was online exclusive….I don’t think that is true well I really hope it isn’t. But have you heard this Christine or has anyone heard this? Thanks!

Nina Avatar

I know the “Melt your heart set” is available in stores. I always buy my MAC at the local Nordstroms, and they had the set there when they were doing pre-ordering, so they definitely have it.

The cards I know I have seen in stores in the past… but maybe they are only selling them online now? That seems silly, but I suppose it could be true.
Also, I feel like the little ornament bear they had last year WAS on online only thing, but I could be wrong on that as well. All I know is I ordered it online, and I generally only go online for stuff the local stores aren’t carrying.

Oh ~ Nordstrom also has the lip set on it’s website, but no sign of the bear or cards. So maybe your MAC lady was just referring to those?

Linzi Avatar

Im going to get the melt your heart set when it comes out in the uk. I got into MAC too late to buy the first gaga lipstick and Ive really wanted it for awhile now. So happy they’ve done this set and its all for a great cause! 🙂

Livia Avatar

I really wanted that Teddybear with the small lipglass but apparently it’s only available in Pro Stores and they’re no Pro stores in Switzerland. Same elsewhere?

Nina Avatar

It’s available online! Though I don’t know if they ship internationally… Or if there is a separate website for other countries, etc. Sorry. But if you have access to the same website MAC uses in the states the ornament is available there!

Livia Avatar

Thanks, yes I saw it was available on the main MAC website and also on other countries’ mac websites, but unfortunately not on the Swiss one, since they don’t sell anything there. I’ll try to buy it on the german website and ship it to my family there. Thanks for the tip!

Nina Avatar

I wanna know where you get the cute silver packaging with little bows!?! Especially if the bear/cards are only available on the website… Is that what they ship the stuff in? =) Cause I want ’em! =)
