I get the mini pigments every holiday season!! You really cant beat the price and the amount of pigments that you get, OH I’M SO EXCITED ITS THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!

Lorna Avatar

i might get one set from the lipglass and one from the pigments. i have never gotten too much into the pigments but i do like to try things out. i look forward to this.

nicole Avatar

i know im exactly in your position.i just started with mac in august and im working my way into my collection.ive never tried pigments this is aperfect chance and u cant beat the planning on getting bright gloss set and warm pigments what about you?

Nepenthe Avatar

These mini sets are always my undoing during the holiday craziness. I love that there are three pigment sets this year too, even though my wallet isn’t.

Can’t wait to get in to swatch these. :]

Lynh Avatar

Wow These holiday collections look so good!

Does anybody know if these are still around in December? I’m not going to the US until then.

tofupoo Avatar

i cant wait for this one! everythings so lilll it makes me want everything lol! but i will def get sex pot and one of the lipglass sets!! yayay

amy Avatar

I am liking the mini pigments and the packaging that makes the glosses and pigments stand up right, but I am going to try to skip out on this collection because there are other things I want to try.

Anitacska Avatar

I like the lok of the bright lipglasses and the cool pigments. Been meaning to try out Kitchmas, but didn’t want to get a big jar, would never use it up.

Coffee Avatar

ummmmmm, I’m getting EVERY LAST ONE of these this year!!! Loves them, Loves them, Loves them (HATE that you cant get a Pro Discount on them tho)

Alexis Avatar

I spoke to my regular MAC girl and she was annoyed and tired with the abundance of product launches. She makes a very interesting point – they are shown product launches about 3-6 months in advanced, taught how to use product but by the time it comes out they have to remember what they learned and so this is a process she has to do with every launch. So with all the holiday stuff coming out one after another she’s totally overwhelmed. I don’t blame her – this is a bit much!

kpenn Avatar

I think Iโ€™ll be going for the Models Misbehaving lip and possibly all three pigment sets. I (reluctantly) talked myself out of the Frisky Business set after realizing that I already have minis of both Wonderstruck and Pinkarat. Also, Iโ€™m a little sceptical about the cool pigments just because of my colouring, and Iโ€™m almost hoping that theyโ€™re not for me โ€“ my wallet just canโ€™t handle this!

mars Avatar

Just a warning, if you want any holiday sets preorder it with your MAC person. 80% of the Holiday collections sell out long before Thanksgiving with nothing new coming until the day after Xmas. Every year we get people coming in late November complaining that we’re sold out already. When it arrives mid October, our is to be sold out before Thanksgiving so we’re not stuck with it after xmas. Please shop early and preorder your stuff.

nicole Avatar

i just wanna say thank you so much to whoever made this site it helps me so much now what im getting from mac anticipated so i can save between the soft and bright gloss collections i have no idea which to get tho

nicole Avatar

hmm decided to get the bright one just cuase im scared the soft ones are just way too light and after all the gloss wont come off as a hot magenta on my lips.any idea when youll have the barbequo bourdoir or however u spell it rush tho.what are you planning on getting from this collection?

lisa Avatar

i can’t wait for this collection it is so great for me since i am a starter for mac and the only things i got from mac are 2 brushes
and i am totally gonna get 2 lipglass sets

the lipglass sets that i really want to get are
Frisky Business/Bright
Sexy Shenanigans/Soft
maybe pigments who knows

Jennifer Avatar

I know this may be a dumb question, but whats the size of the individual lip gloss? From the pics, they look like they are full size, though for that price, Im sure they are promo sized.

nicole Avatar

yea there promo size just in larger tubes i guess not sure how much is in them tho.i know normal lipglasses and lusterglass are 14.00 full size but some of those colors are l/e that u cant buy individually

NappyMACDiva3 Avatar

I have the ones from last year and they are 2.4g/.08oz. They are a nice size if you would like to try out different colors for a nice price. Regular lipglass is 4.8g/.17oz.

Crisstyna Avatar

The Packaging I agree, they really skipped over on these, for the cost I’d think they’d put some effort into the packaging! The pigments however are gorgeous!

Trend Setters College Avatar

Oooh I can’t wait until these are released! MAC always has great package design, too. These Pigments look great! I’m sure many clients will be asking about these, iti seems like they come in for a hair cut and leave with a make over once they see these mac products.

Becca Avatar

Can’t decide…I might get the Soft lip set & maybe the Cool Capers pigment set….I love the way the lip sets look but I’m not crazy about MAC lip products aside from their lipsticks. I may just get one of the lip sets in the bags from the other Holiday set….that is if they’re not all sold out by November 5 as I’ll be out of town and not able to purchase until then

nicole Avatar

hmmmm tempting but most of the pigments r permanent :S
maybe ill just get the lipglosses. OMG MAC IS MAKIN ME NUTS!
im gonna be so broke this month and next month all bcuz of MAC LOL

sukii Avatar

All I can say is that ill be broke. I love the soft lips set, and all the pigments even though i have a few on the regular size already. I need to buy a new make up case. make is making more room in my bank and less room in my house.

NappyMACDiva3 Avatar

No lippies unless they someone gives as a gift. I have too many already. I have only one of the warm pigments, so I plan to get that set. I may get the cool too even though most colors are perm, but I don’t have the perm ones in the cool set. Hopefully I will get the cool as a gift. ๐Ÿ™‚

andrea Avatar

why is this the only part of the collection not posted in the mac website haha ?? it scares me lol is it true that you cant use pro discount with this??? why?

Ashley Avatar

Ugh I was really hoping to get some of the pigment sets this year, but I own full size of the entire cool eyes collection and at least 2 of all the others. Couldn’t MAC be a bit more creative in the colours they put into these? Maybe bring back some long long ago discontinued pigments? ๐Ÿ™

andie Avatar

Hi! I was looking your webpage and it’s just awesome!! I love it. I love MAC a lot!!

I was looking at these collections but they are not available on line yet, or am I wrong?


Monica Avatar

I’m loving the Sexy Shenanigans/Soft lipglass set and the Sexpot/Smoky pigment set.

I only ever bought ONE full sized pigment so I think this is great! You really don’t need that much, which comes in a full sized jar.

Cant wait til Nov 5th! I didn’t get a thing from the Holiday collections…… I just was not feeling it AT all!

Sarah M Avatar

I have to say I’ve never been blown away by the packaging of MAC’s holiday sets but for me, personally, these items are beautiful. I am a complete sucker for pigments and glitters so I know for sure that, if I don’t get anything else, I will definitely be getting all 3 of the pigment/glitter sets. The good this is that I actually only have 1 or 2 of the colours being promoted so it’ll be a worthwhile purchase! ๐Ÿ™‚

jolenz Avatar

Definitely going to get the Mini Pigments. Sad to say I don’t have very many. I just bought 2 pigments over the weekend: Naked and Heritage Rouge. I’m happy to say that I think I’m hooked on pigments- so these sets for the holiday is gift to me!

Anna Avatar

Im getting the warm pigments for sure since I don’t have any of the colours in there..I really want more of the reflects antique gold but I already have 4/5 pigments that are in there already! What are the chances mac will let me switch the pigments up? LOL

Kate Sutton Avatar

Agreeing with the person above I really need to know when all of the holiday stuff is released in the uk…none of my MAC stores will tell me!

jolenz Avatar

The MAC Counter at my Nordstrom is taking pre-order of this collection and I’m told I can pick it up on the 4th not the 5th! Hmmmm…I guess it doesn’t really matter when to pick it up since it’s only a day apart AND isn’t it nice to be able to pick up stuff a day early:)

I was to swatch a few colors and I’m definitely getting 2 sets of pigments and 1 set of the lipglosses!

Aubrey Avatar

These arent on the canada site!? i only wanted this from the whole holiday collection. ๐Ÿ™ i hope they have it at the bay or mac store even though its not on the website…

Rebecca Avatar

When I went to my MAC counter at Nordstrom yesterday they had the Mischief Makers collection on pre-sale. The had the displays out and everything which made me even more excited to get them! I pre-bought all 3 pigment sets. I only have one full sized pigment (Shimmertime from the Naughty Noir eye bag) so after I get the pigment sets I think I’ll be done with buying pigments for a long time. ๐Ÿ™‚ My MAC lady said I got one of the last of each pigment set and that they will be sold out before the collection even comes out so if you know ones you absolutely must have you may want to pre-buy ASAP!

Donnie Avatar

I’m new to Mac & I want a few sets BUT I’m confused. Some of you say, pre-order because sets sell out. Others say, the sets are cheaper after the holiday. So, which is it? Should I wait till January 2010 or order ASAP!

Rebecca Avatar

If you feel that you “have to” have one of the sets, or if you want it now then you should pre-order it or buy it off of the website now (they are now on the mac website). It is up to whether you want to take the chance of not getting them at all.

Crisstyna Avatar

Does anybody know what weight the Pigments are in the Mischeif Makers Collection? I need to know to see if it’s a good deal or not, and I can’t find the info anywhere! If anyone knows please let me know.

Rebecca Avatar

I don’t know the weight but I believe that it is half the amount that is in a regular pigment because that is how the lipglasses in the sets are. I hope that helps!

andrea Avatar

each pigment normally weights 7.5 grams and the mini pigments 2.5 grams each. maybe there is not as much product but they are super pigmented and the variety of colors are great.

Dot Avatar

Which Mac Mini Lipglass/Lustreglass set would you recommend to a WOC, NC50? I want to purchase the set that would “show up” on a dark skintone.

Haley Avatar

Man!!! I want all so bad, I don’t have any MAC pigments yet, but I am sooo tempted with the mini ones, I really need to make a trip to the states and do a major haul there, would be way cheaper with our dollar almost at par with the american right now, although the flight down there i think would be the difference i would be saving… lol

Rebecca Avatar

I totally agree! I picked up all three pigment sets because i couldnt choose! They are one of
my holiday presents and now i wont need any more pigments for a loooooong
time ๐Ÿ™‚ hahaha

nicole Avatar

ugh im so mad right now i went to mac and i gave my mom the stuff i wanted on a list with clear written names and they give me the wrong lip gloss kit.,ugh this is the third time they either forget something or dont even put it in the bag and ive only shopped at mac like 4 times.Its the only mac around me so i have no choice but to go back but its gettinga nnoying

Haley Avatar

Just picked up the Sexy Shinanigans lip gloss set and i love it so much, the colours are all amazing! Wasnt as happy with the pigments, none of them really jumped out at me.

Rebecca Avatar

That is the lip set i like best but i didnt get it today… Yet ๐Ÿ˜‰
Do you think it is worth the price? Im comflicted about getting it

paige Avatar

They will have mini sets like these again this year, right? I loved the little darlings collection, though i got little from it, and i loved this collection. If they don’t do this again I’ll scream; if they do, i’ll ‘eeekkk’ with excitment!

Deb Avatar

One of my friends who I haven’t seen in a long time just gave me the Cool Capers pigment set (which she bought for me in 2009, hehe). I am so excited! Pretty sure pigments don’t go bad, especially since they were never opened.
