I must be out of the MAC loop- Ligjtscapade was re-released last year? Lol wow apparently I’m waayy off. Im talking “back up” from the Danse collection lol. I’m hoping its as amazing in this re-released form.

Reel Sexy & Pink Popcorn HAVE to be mine!!! <3
I hope Pink Popcorn it's a true lavender.. I wanted "Budding Love" from "Chen Man" but looked more pink! Gotta love my lavenders..<3

Heroine is just a regular matte formula, not a retro matte 🙁 It’s still a gorgeous lipstick though, in both formula and colour, so you should definitely check it out!

Watch Me Simmer again? That’s a bit weird. But I missed out the first time, so I’m happy 🙂 haha. That and Lightscapade will be mine! I’m definitely trying to resist Pink Popcorn as I just got Budding Love. I wonder if they’ll be similar enough for me to skip it?

Whatch me simmer must have been a huge success since they’re repromoting it again not even 2 months from its original release date.
From these pictures, I want reel sexy. Il probably get a whatch me simmer back up 😉

Aww I hope this isn’t *the* summer collection for this year. Surf Baby and To The Beach were so much fun, with all the summery corals and teals, and special packaging. Hopefully MAC has something more like that up their sleeve!

I want the eyeshadows: I just wish they were sold as singles, as each duo has a color I want & one that I don’t need or would never wear. I’ll probably end up with at least two…

I heard Lightscapade is going to be made permanent following this collection – do you know if that’s right?

I’m a big fan of purples and corals so I’m looking forward to this collection. I’m probably going to get 3 of the lipsticks (I already have Watch Me Simmer), at least one Cremesheen glass (the light purple one), the lavender and plum eyeliners, and *maybe* a back-up of Pink Cult because it’s a truly wonderful blush.

I missed out on watch me simmer & pink cult the first time so I’ll try to get them this time..I’m interested to see what the coral cremesheen glass looks like

Different finish – Heroine in WW was listed as a frost finish! It’s possible that they’re the same, but based on the finish, they appear to be different.

Might have to get myself a pink cult backup, I feel like such a putz for buying it online at retail price + 1/2 now that
It’s repromo’d >=[ too good to pass up this time around!

Guess who is going to be broke when this releases?! Oh right… me! I will be calling my local Mac shops to have somebody hang on top lightscapade for me!! I will not miss out on it again!

Heroine looks gorgeous! Unfortunately, I’m terrible at securing these limited edition things from MAC. I’m sure I’ll miss out. Do you know of any dupes?

I am so excited about this! The colors are wonderful and bright. Summer is a couple of days away here in the Philippines. :)Pink Popcorn and Watch Me Shimmer have to be mine <3

So I was lucky enough to have gotten watch me simmer in the previous collection but not been able to wear it because it goes on patchy anyone have issues with this and if u have how have u resolve it?

I will be skipping this collection, I don’t see anything that’s wowing me in particular. Maybe a teal polish, oh but wait….probably not at 15.00.

I’ve been trying to get the shadow names to find out if they are new, limited or repromotes does anyone have any ideas? since it doesn’t say next tot he shadow shoudl I assume they are new colors?

the new colors i love ,they dont have the color name under the eye shadow by mac reel sexy collection for summer. there is a pretty pale gray, thats not it name color but i like light matte grayor grey colors i like all the colors. thank you

Oh wow. I have just got to have all those eye kohl pencils, especially the lavender one. I am also eager to test out the lightscape mineralize skinfinish.

AHH!! LIGHTSCAPADE IS BACKKKKKK YESS!
I just got this last yr and OMGSH fav highlighter evarrrrrsss. Going to be picking up a back up for sure! [:

I hope Lightscapade doesnt look all beige and icky like last year! What happened to its gorgeous blue, pink and pearl swirls? Ill keep my fingers crossed. Also gotta grab a new Pink Cult. <3

I bought the Force of Love lipstick since I couldn’t get my hands on Watch Me Simmer. I can’t believe they repromoed it so fast! Do you think I could do without it? Is it identical to the Force of Love lipstick?

I love Watch Me Simmer, but I already own Force of Love. Do you think they’re close enough that I don’t need WMS, or do you think they’re different enough to justify owning both?

I’m curious about getting Lightscapade. I’m an NW45 so I usually prefer more golden highlights, like Nars Albatross. Any comments from those that may have tried this on darker skin? I’m worried it may be too pale for me and appear ashy and unflattering.

Thanks
