Gold Fever sounds the most interesting to me. I cant wait to see the shadesticks! I hope they are new and not just re-promoting items from the perm. line. and brushes…ooh that sounds interesting too.

Oh my. All that? That is truly frightening, LOL! My head is spinning a little. I have no idea what to even consider buying! Maybe photos and swatches will help me decide. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am so excited for entirely too many of these collections (oh, my poor wallet, lol)…

I just got back from my local MAC counter, and my favorite MA let me take a glance through her preview book (complete with swatches in several places, as well as details of where and when collections will be released). I am telling you, I am IN TROUBLE!

A few things:

The Ungaro collection will not be on normal counters, but will be available through Nordstrom

The Mineralize display, if I remember correctly, is supposed to be permanent to the line (at least some of it)

The Cremesheen lippies (which look absolutely yummy, btw) are not LE…they will be permanent

Manish Arora is exclusive to the Pro Stores in NY if I remember correctly.

I’m not saying any of this is ironclad, because I am pulling from memory and I could easily have made a mistake (things tend to get a bit wonky in my little pea brain, lol), but I was quite excited my most of the collections!

Thanks for the info, S.! Great to know that SOME things will be perm – and yes, the mineralize display will be perm ๐Ÿ™‚

Wish we knew more details!

Oh my gosh…just when I’m going on vacation! I just love all things mineralized!!! The eye shadow colors do look so much similar to last years though. I don’t know how I’m going to have enough money for July 10 and July 18!!! Ahh!!! I’m freaking out because I thought I had until July 18 for a new launch…boy was I wrong!

I’m excited but at the same time getting frustrated! MAC needs to slow down, they’re taking the specialness out of LE items!

I totally agree. But I think there’s a reason behind this. this week, I was surprised to see how many “discontinued” stickers there were in the freestanding store. The display for lips is getting smaller, the other displays seem to be following the same trend…. and that would explain their move towards more intense trend-based LE collections

Yes…MAC is becoming crazy without giving me a second to breathe. On the other hand, because I’m addicted…I like it anyway!!! What I would like to see more of are new paintpot colors though ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey Victoria! I don’t think there’s very much in Gold Fever that’s TOO intriguing – I heard a lot of repromotes/perm items.

This is a tentative schedule I think because I know that Dazzleglass is coming back this fall for sure. Has anybody seen Dior’s new lip-plumping glosses? They have the same sparkle as MAC’s Dazzleglass in a new cocktail twist. They are great for summer. Check them out at Sephora’s. I know that MAC is doing great sales wise, but people can’t keep up with soooo much! I hope they slow things down otherwise sales will slump for some launches. It’s impossible to keep up with it all!http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P212930&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=1073

*perks up* Dazzleglass? ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh I SO hope it does come back. The other MAC glosses are okay, but those babies really won my heart.

I’m DYING to see the Manish Arora collection. Have heard so much buzz about it the last couple of months. Can’t wait to see the new shadesticks, paint pots, & pigments.

Are CremeSheens new? I’ve never heard of these…unless I’m blanking on something.

What should I do? Go cold turkey, buy it all or (God forbid) exercise some self-restraint? *sits contempating a future out on the streets, but surrounded by shiny new MAC products*

You might have noticed this too. The permanent displays seem to be getting slimmer and slimmer. But I think there’s a reason behind this. this week, I was surprised to see how many “discontinued” stickers there were in the freestanding store. The display for lips is getting smaller, the other displays seem to be following the same trend…. and that would explain their move towards more intense trend-based LE collections

im excited.
although if these are only being released in select places i wont be able to get a whole lot of it. probs for the best to be honest! shmer i wonder if the uk is EVER going to see cool heat.

iiii’m waiiitinggg.
i hate waiting for new launches. i get so impatient.

I think I am having a MAC overdose! But I am enjoying it.
I have barely had enough time to use my neosci-fi or naughty nauticals collections !

Lustre Twins and Starflash are out early at Nordstrom!!! I love love love prolongwear and the texture of the Starflash eyeshadows are amazing. Plus Feline and Raven, 2 of my fav pencils ever are back!

Thanks for the update, Marsina! I’ll have to check if mine has it. I know the one I called in Florida (hey, it’s 7am on the west coast, and opening time on the east coast – thought I could see if it was ALL Nordstrom’s) didn’t have it out, though.
