I love the marketing on this collection! Why didn’t someone think of it before….of course….sappy romance….so fun! The collection is huge however. Hopefully, you review these before the release (and MAC sends them to you) so that we can have some guidance. Not possible to just buy it all!

This concept is hilarious! Very cheeky and the colours look gorgeous. I will have to keep an eye on the pink lipsticks, the pinky/blue quad and the blushes!

Michelle Avatar

The first and third eye quads are TDF!!!!!!!! And the liners!! UGH I hope I hate it all in person LOL!!! I have that MU4E palette on my radar, can’t get everything!!

Caity Avatar

That marketing is fantastic! I believe the Romance genre is the most profitable genre in books, so this will go fast! I’m definitely going to pinch my pennies for this stuff! Squee!!

Saw this collection in person yesterday. The palettes left me cold. Lipsticks and glosses are pretty.
Shadow singles are very, very shimmery/sparkly in person. The blue color is the most gorgeous in person.

kellly Avatar

that’s just what I was hoping for with the shadows. I’ve never seen anything that was too shiny, shimmery or sparkly for me!

Joyce Avatar

Is this coming to Europe aswell or just USA? Cause i finally fall in love with some new MAC lipsticks and of course it would be just my luck if i can’t even get my hands on them

Soma Avatar

Today the collection is launched and I went crazy adding each Item once to cart to check how much it adds up to…..A whooping $780 excluding taxes :(…..

MichelleChefNYC Avatar

The colors of the palettes in this collection are gorgeous, especially the last one with the pinky purples and peacock green shades… too bad if recent performance is an indicator they’ll probably be dry and lack pigmentation like all of MAC’s palettes over the last few years… I do love the sort of tongue in cheek over the top promtional image and theme for this… Hoping this one is a winner!

Veronica Avatar

Oh man, my BFF is not a big makeup person, but I’ve got to show her this collection. She’s a romance novel fanatic (the cheesier, the better!), and she’s going to get a kick out of the theme.

Wednesday Avatar

I am definitely interested in a few of the items.. I’m usually not enthusiastic about MAC quads, but I like the colour combos in all. I want to get a warmer deeper red lipstick for fall since it’s an area not covered well already in my stash.. I’ve been sidetracked on a berry buying binge lately. Looks like I will find something to love in this collection…assuming decent ratings, well duh 😉

Dia Avatar

I’m loving the hilarious promo images! Way to have a sense of humor, MAC! I like the colors in this collection, so I can’t wait for your reviews either.

Gabriela Avatar

OMG, I can’t believe this. I AM A ROMANCE WRITER (at least a few of my novels are romance), I need this collection so badly ajaja :D. The bad news? It will never come to Argentina, buh :(.

kellly Avatar

I am SOOOO anxious to see these IRL! The single pot eye shadows are especially intriguing, and those purple-toned lipsticks need to be mine!

Mariella Avatar

I was wondering if, in addtion to spoofing the Harlequins, the people at MAC thought it might have a subtle tie in with the Outlander movie that is supposed to be coming out soon (there is tartan in one of the photos! And heather and a sailing ship in others….

Helene Avatar

From just looking at the products, I want them all! I love the idea of this collection, I love the adds. I never read romance novels, I have read a few, years ago, and the photos are so on spot. I love this, but I can see how others might really dislike it.
I hope the products are as good as they look, and I will go rob a bank 😉 No not really, I promise 😀

Jenny Avatar

From past collection releases does anyone know what time the new collections are available online the day it’s released? I’ll be on vacation (in Pacific time) on the 14th and I don’t want to miss out lol Thanks everyone!

AbigailOD Avatar

I Love the promo pictures – such brilliant concept! The guy reminds me of someone from Game of Thrones, the one the “dragon lady” is married to (not too familiar with the character names, sorry!)
