MAC Give Me Liberty of London Collection + Added Photos

MAC Give Me Liberty of London Collection

U.S. Launch Date: March 11, 2010
International Launch Date: April 2010

Edit #1: Now with a few images! 馃檪聽 Not everything, but at least you get an idea about the packaging — which I think looks phenomenal.聽 They don’t look like stickers, and as long as they’re not, this may be some of the best packaging MAC has put out in awhile. (1/6/2010)

Edit #2: Now with a few MORE images — including an image of the very richly priced scarf.聽 (1/7/2010)

The very latest in a series of famous M路A路Coll aborations, it was only a matter of time before the demure-to-daring kaleidoscopic prints of Liberty of London coloured our world with Brit wit and bohemian chic. From the unstudied, Sienna Miller style of Spitalfields Market to the grit-and-glamour of Portobello Road, the swinging London girl has always been an unstoppable M路A路C makeup force! Spring 2010 insists on the ultimate flower fusion, with M路A路C joining forces with Liberty, creating cool Britannia compacts and Lipsticks, Eye Shadows, Powder, Blush, Nail Lacquers and, of course 鈥 blushing, bountiful, quite British accessories.

OMG! Look at that cute packaging! I hope I have some recycles by the time this comes out. I know I’m new to this forum. But I am on a NO-BUY (except mascara which you obviously must replace regularly)from ALL makeup this year. I decided that I could never EVER use all my makeup. And since I have all the variety I could ever want, I’ve decided to investigate swapping and just giving some samples away.

anna Avatar

wait isnt summer rose a repromote? there was a bp called summer rose in the rose romance collection. if it is being repromoted, then i am getting it for sure beacuse i wanted it in rose romance but skipped it.

Lisa Avatar

I have both of them, and I think they are different formulations. Summer Rose from the rose romance collection is really sheer(I am a NW15, and I have to apply 5 layers of the product for it to look like a pale blush)and the Summer Rose from Liberty of London is much more pigmented, and i only have to apply one layer. Love your site 馃檪

Hannah Avatar

I’m so excited for this collection!
I already want Blooming Lovely lipstick, Frankly fresh lipglass, Dame’s Desire and Birds & Berries eyeshadow, and deff. Prim & Proper blush!

Can’t wait to see pictures!

ak Avatar

Christine please let me know when MAC comes out with either a Matte, Satin, or Mattene lipstick that looks like the Moxie lipstick from the Retro Matte lipstick collection that came out many years ago. It was the collection that started Ruby Woo.

cmferrets Avatar

FINALLY… something from mac that had LE packaging! im excited about this collection. i already have the summer rose BP. i am so happy to see a LE creamsheen new lipstick. i wanna also get the new blue nailpolish and cant wait for the matte e.s !
i think i also have the dames desire e.s though… wasnt it in the dame edna e.s quad ? i think so!

nicole Avatar

omg I thought after warm and cozy and lovelace id take a break from mac for a while.boy was i wrong.i started collecting in august and i always wanted special packaging sincei missed out on hk and style warriors and such.this will defenetly be the highlight of 2010

Wilcoa Avatar

This sounds awesome! I’ve never heard of Liberty of London before, but it sounds up my alley with this collection! So excited to see product photos when they come out! May end up being the collection of 2010 for me 馃槢

Dusty Avatar

Is Peachstock a pro lipstick or a repromote? I have it… I know I have it because I actually quite like it 馃檪 It’s a VERY opaque nude, similar to Fleshpot but creamier and warmer (not as pale).

Judy Avatar

OMG! Again. Damn you MAC!!! I want everything. I’m already planning on buying two of the Blooming Lovely lippies. I also want the dirty plum blush and, well, just everyting. Guess I will be broke for most of the New Year thanks to MAC…grrrrr.

Judy Avatar

Question. Anyone have an idea when we will be seeing color swatches for this collection? I’m dying for this collection to be available already. I honestly don’t think I can make it until March.

Layla Avatar

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! MAC what are you trying to do to us?? Love everything! Question about Blooming Lovely lipstick. It says its a Creamy greyed lilac mauve…cannot wait. Does that mean it really has some grey in it plus purple color? Need to have it now!!! I’ve been looking all over for a color like that. I thinks MAC will have to make a billion because I am planning on buying about four of everything.

Dena Avatar

why does everyone care about the packaging. does it even matter? i prefer the items could care less about packaging the products. i’m wondering if mac will be coming out with more purple, mauve, lavender, lilac and orchid colors in the future?

Anna Avatar

Isn’t Peachstock a PRO color? and is Dirty Plum Blush the same Drity Plum Blush that is coming out in the MAC Riveting collection? cause they have different discriptions….anywayz, I am super excited for this collection!! I’m gonna nuy most of it.

Dusty Avatar

It’s also a PRO color – Available at Just so’s everyone knows: The PRO lipsticks that are currently available through MACPro are:

Show Orchid
Full Fuchsia
Fusion Pink
Neon Orange
Full Chocolate
Red Pepper
Smoked Purple
Charred Red

You can see color swatches here:

These are all pretty snazzy colors. My own personal favorites: Violetta, Show Orchid, Smoked Purple and Peachstock. Close seconds are: Fusion Pink, Neon Orange and Sin.

All of those are colors that (to me) don’t look like anything else MAC makes… Colors like Charred Red and Full Chocolate are much easier to dupe.

ak Avatar

The Dame’s Desire and Birds & Berries shadows sound hot to me. The Bough Grey shadow would look hot to me but only if it’s dark.

I want to take a look at Peachstock lipstick just to see it but I really want to see Petals & Peacocks and Blooming Lovely. I have fixation on trying on dead-looking, really cool-toned light lip colors like Blooming Lovely, even though my warm-toned skin makes it sound really wrong!

Sabeen Avatar

wow…i can’t wait to see this collection…
i live in london and liberty is always one of my fave shopping stops 馃檪
the colours sound good…and i m curious about the packaging 馃檪

Paige Avatar

These are so gorgeous!
Can’t wait to see the rest of the collection.
Might have to go off my no buy just for this!
Just get the ones I “need” now and then get the rest at a CCO.

HC Avatar


That purple e/s is SO FREAKING PRETTY! And the packaging! I AM SO STOKED. I can’t wait to see the rest of the products!!!!!

Stephanie Avatar

That nail lacquer looks gorgeous!

Hopefully MAC鈥檚 promopics represent the colours right for once, because that is one beautiful colour! Though I shouldn鈥檛 get my hopes up just yet, it wouldn鈥檛 be the first time I鈥檇 get excited about a colour, which then turns out looking completely different in real life.

Ah well, let鈥檚 all hope and pray! ^^

Christine Avatar

Their newer photos are more spot on – this I say when they have a *brand new* product or packaging that they have show off, because otherwise, they just transplant or play around with the color in Photoshop (from what I can tell, I don’t know what the REAL process is) to get the “right” color rather than actually re-doing the photos.

Nic Avatar

Wow! First MAC collection I’ve been interested in since Style Black – can’t wait to see this stuff IRL. Hope my crummy MAC counter actually gets the good stuff *eye-roll*.

Dusty Avatar

i would be surprised if you couldn’t. i always thought it was pretty much only the holiday stuff that pro memebers didn’t get discounts on. suppose we’ll find out in march though 馃檪

Sarah M Avatar

OMG! I think I’m in love. I really hope there are no stickers & as you’ve said, from the pictures it doesn’t look like there are any. I already have Summer Rose beauty powder and Dame’s Desire eye shadow but I want them again just for the packaging!!! Lol.

Cassie Avatar

I was just wondering where you get your collection information from. Is it directly from Mac or somewhere else? Thanks for posting it! I get so excited when new collections come out!

Kaydence Avatar

LOVING IT!!!! I wish it was coming out earlier than March 11th. I need it now. When can we expect to see more of these items/colors? Also, I always found MAC colors online to be near perfect when I receive them via mail. There product colors online are true to color I’ve found. I’ve never had a product showing one color online and arriving looking different. MAC is one of the only brands in my opinion that are true to color when you see them.

Arianne Avatar

Shell Pearl sounds like a great cheek highlighter! I am definitely looking forward to this collection. The recent collections (thankfully) haven’t been exciting in person.

Rachel Avatar

Cool! I’m loving the packaging..finally something original coming out! I’m all over the beauty powders, b/c I always love the formula..and the Cremesheen and Amplified l/s. Can’t wait to see this one in person!

sophaaay Avatar

i was expected better looking packaging from this collection but some of the eyeshadows lipsticks and powders sound nice. wont be spending as much as i thaught i would

Annie Avatar

*sharp intake of breath* Ohh… my god… packaging is SOOOO beautiful!
Hope the eyeshadows have good payoff, all the colors sound great!

claudia Avatar

Oh, my God, this was my fave spring collection just by the description but now looking at the pictures, I love the packaging ! I’ll def get the amplifieds and the e/s !! Woooooooooooo !!!

Shayla Avatar

So pretty! They don’t look like stickers to me either, since on the lipstick you can kind of see the whole “comic book look” (you know, when you can TELL it’s printed) on the one bird. Maybe I wouldn’t have gone with a bird on the packaging, but the flowers are cute!

The color descriptions sound pretty neat, too! Definitely a collection I’ll have to check out.

Sasha B Avatar



end of story. I’m freaking out i was so excited about his packaging when i read the description but NOW! no words..

SiaM Avatar

I love the packaging it is very unique and feminine, cute spring colors!! I am very surprised is the first collection that I will try to buy as much items as I can, definitely a must have for me!!!! I cannot wait for your review either!!!鈾鈾

Jessie Avatar

Wow, this packaging is lovely! really cute and somewhat vintage. Will be picking up a blush or beauty powder for sure! cannot wait for swatches =)

Jenny Avatar

OMG I’m excited about this collection! I’m not too interested in the upcoming makeup collections (the Lily one doesn’t appeal to me whatsoever and the All Ages/Sexes/Races one I need to see swatches to make a judgment). Maybe I’ll skip those two and just buy a lot from this one 馃檪

GG Avatar

Thank goodness, LE lippies that aren’t lustres! I just can’t do the lustre finish any more, too drying. I will definitely be springing for some of these.

Valentine Avatar

Just lovely. This is the first MAC collection that’s really gotten me excited in a while–will have to try out some of those lip products. Any idea if the lipstick in the first pic is Ever Hip?

amy Avatar

I am excited for this collection and I think it is one of the most beautiful and original packaging to be released to date. I almost feel like skipping all the January and February collections to buy more from this collection. My favourite is the Blue India nail polish and I am getting that for sure.

abby Avatar

Thank you so much Christine for all the updates. My gosh it looks like MAC will have beautiful colours all year long, so i have to save for all that lol. There seem to be a lot of pinks, purples and corals…my favourite colours. ANd the packaging makes me wanna buy them even more. What collection are you looking forward to?

Petra Avatar

Wow, this is the first occasion that i feel like i’d buy products just for the packaging. 馃檪 I would’ve bought items only for packagin from the ‘Ornamentalism’ collection, from a long time ago, if a.) we already had MAC here b) if i had enough money back then. That was so lovely…:)

Tizzy Avatar

Ever Hip reminds me of Strawberry Blonde lipstick. YUUUUUMMMMMMM….. This is the best looking collection ever. Knocks the socks of everything else!

KarenL Avatar

I LOVE the look of this collection! I can’t decide if I’m more excited about this or the colour forecast collection. I’m just really gutted that I’m going to be on holiday by the time it comes out in the UK! 馃檨 I think I’m going to have to put a wishlist together and ask my sister to run an errand to MAC for me. . . Don’t want it to sell out before I get back! 馃槢

Anitacska Avatar

Aah, I love this, and I don’t normally buy make up for the packaging! It also helps that some of the products I’ve seen are very pretty on the inside too. 馃檪

cyndy Avatar

this does not look to exciting…. i don’t know why but i am not looking forward to this..i have never really been the type to go out and spend money products just because it is a limited time special..

Roxanne Avatar

I’m interested in the green blue nail lacquer and maybe the blushes but that’s about it. The packaging doesn’t particularly appeal to me like it does to some others, apparently 馃檪

Phoenix Avatar

i want all of it! i have decided im going to buy this whole collection! my mom is going to think im insane! lets see total cost of this whole collection is… (not including medium makeup bag in canadian dollars is ……..
i better start saving 馃檪

christi Avatar

i’m gunna have to buy quite a few items from this collection, if for no other reason than the packaging. Super cute! The lipsticks and beauty powders sound amazing! Can’t wait!

Judy Avatar

Me loves, me loves, me loves it all!!! I am assuming that amazing lipstick on the woman in the first pix is the Blooming Lovely that I am dying to get. Is that blush the dirty plum? Loves it again!!!! Thank you for posting.

cmferrets Avatar

i love the blue nailpolish!
but christine…. i think one of the e/s (dames desire) is not a new item. it is a repromote. it was in the dame edna trio e/s palette. am i right?
thanx for pictures girl!

miss_cookie_monster Avatar

The beauty powder in summer rose has the exact same description as the beauty powder from rose romance, so i’m assuming it’s exactly the same apart from having the rose imprint of course x

Missy D Avatar

This looks fabulous!!! I can’t wait until it comes. It really looks amazing. I just love the packaging alone. Very different, especially for MAC. I love how a lot of this collection is limited edition too. I’m sure it will sell quickly.

Melinda Avatar

This Is My #1 Choice for this New Year 2010 I might Skip all others But this One is A Must !I Love the Packageing Trully Gorgeous 馃榾 oxox

Elise Avatar

Again, MAC really bumps it up with the sharp packaging! With costs on the rise and my wallet not getting any bigger these days, I will hold onto to my pennies until I can actually swatch some colors. Too many dups are popping up.


Kim Avatar

Is that the Bloomy lipstick on the woman in the poster? Love it. I had hoped it would be more of a lilac color than pink though. When will we have swatches to view? I don’t think I can wait so long to get these items.

NY Avatar

thank GOD I didn’t replace my Peachstock last month like I planned to! This packaging is way too cute – i’m not gonna be able to resist. 馃檨 These stupid MAC people really know how to get us eh?

Annie Avatar

Ooh, I’ve already commented this, but I don’t care – this will be the collection I’m going broke on! Well, that is if the temptalia reviews are good ;] I swear by you, Christine! ;P

Nicole Avatar

oh my goodness! Ive only recently gotten into mac, and this might just be the 1st collection I buy a LOT from! The packaging is gorgeous! And the colours sound really good too.
Time to save up..good thing the collections coming before it don’t appeal to me! 馃檪

Msjuneday Avatar

I was saving my MAC gift card for this launch because I heard there was going to be special packaging.. but this looks a little too “Claires” to me. I’m glad they’re repromoting Vestral White, because I missed it on the first round, but the collection isn’t a must have to me. Looks like I can get cheap nail stickers and get the same effect..

amber Avatar

OMG …. this is soooooo cute I think i’ll be getting the beauty powder in shell pearl,free to be ,the makeup bag .and blooming lovely …..SOOOOOOO excited

Melissa Avatar

when i first saw this post I was really excited, but now
I think its just super cute packaging.

but I can’t wait for pictures!!! 馃檪

I LOVE YOUR SITE! thank you 馃檪

Jasmine Avatar

Are the blushes in special packaging too? I really want dirty plum which is also coming out with the Riveting collection, but I’ll wait for this collection if there’s special packaging, makes it more fun! 馃檪

Thanks for posting Christine, I can always count on Temptalia to keep me up to date on MAC collections.

Janette Avatar

I have a question is this Dirty Plum blush the same as the Dirty Plum in the Pro Line? wasnt sure if to look out for this one from this collection or just buy the one at a Mac Pro store

Catie Avatar

Nice swatches. I do wish the blooming lovely lippie was more gray lilac-y or purpley but it looks nice. I need to see the swatch on mac’s website though. i also like the dame’s desire e/s and the birds & berries e/s. Christine do you think they will move this up since they are now moving the VivaGlam lippies up to tomorrow???

Anna Avatar

ooh I love the packaging! I was just thinking the other day how Mac hasn’t had cute packaging in a while 馃榾 Im deffinately getting a lipstick

NewToMAC Avatar

Ouch! Because I have a new lipstick obsession, I have bought approximately 60 lipsticks from MAC in the past three months or so. Is there something wrong with me?These frequent releases of new lipsticks are killing me!

Tigerlily Avatar

Where are the pictures of all the items & colors? It feels like MAC isn’t working on letting these out but yet we can even see the stuff for the summer 2010 collections. I need to see the blooming lovely lipstick so bad as well as the dirty plum blush and eyeshadows.

eden Avatar

was summer rose b/p in the rose romance collection ?
i really want both b/p and probs peachstock and blooming lovely l/s
i hope they’re not stickers ill be so dissapointed if they are :/

DAR Avatar

OH my goodness! This collection is absolutely gorgeous. I am so looking forward to it. The day it comes out online, I will definitely be purchasing most of the items! Thanks for posting up the pictures.

Carol Avatar

I鈥檓 going to the launch party thing for this and I was wondering what do people usually wear to those? I鈥檓 clueless on how dressy/formal i should dress. please help & thanks 馃檪



Valerie Avatar

FlutistEmeritus…I think you are right…I have so much makeup they will probably last me for the rest of my life (I am NOT a makeup artist, so maybe 2 lives…haha). However, I think I will go crazy (AGAIN) with this collection. The packaging is killing me! I even want the bag and the scarf….OH NO!!!!!

Michelle Avatar

Ahhhhh, I got an invite to see the preview of this collection at the MAC store in my area, this Tuesday.
I’m so excited for this collection. (:

Dusty Avatar

argh! i got to see swatches from this collection last night and the lipsticks look SO NICE! (i was hoping i could just skip this one.) i love that they are amplifieds and look like they have no shimmer. the coral and pink don’t look like anything MAC already has! ARGH!!!

oh well, if all i want are the lipsticks, i have enough containers to back-2-mac and get them for free!

J Avatar

Does anyone know why MAC has kept this under the rader for so long? We already can see the summer items and I have yet to see this whole collection. How am I suppose to know what I want ahead of time without pictures & swatches??

MACgirl03 Avatar

The CALIFORNIA unvieling party is Sunday March 7th at the Nordstrom Santa Anita Location (Los Angeles Area, near Pasadena, CA)!!!! Starts at 8pm…. Call and RSVP to buy and preview the collection before anyone else can! 626.294.1416

Lexilou712 Avatar

Omgosh I think I just died! That packaging is so gorgeous! I guess I have to come back to life so I can snag a couple of products!

Valerie Avatar

Tenns Avatar

I love the packaging for this release! Excited to see the whole line in person!
