Oh my goodness, we’re not even done with the fall/winter/holiday collections, and they’re already promoting spring 2016? And what’s up with promo pics where you can’t really tell the color or finish??

Spring ’16! Oh my goodness! Can we get through the Holidays first please?! Eek ! Other than that emotion, I like the eye cream one. But, with I know this won’t be at my MAC counter (really doubtful). So, I’m hoping you get a chance to review, Christine. I’m not buying their eye anything without a review.

hm, the MAC naming sounds a little bit like OPI here (for example “Orange You Hot”), and some of the names also sound more like what I am used to from other nail polish brands =D Maybe in general the names in this collection sound rather chipper. Not a big deal or anything, but I have noticed the tune of names changing in the past year (or two years) maybe, so I think that MAC seems to take a bit of a new direction. Could also be that I am imagining this 😀

While I think the idea of a trend forecast palette is ridiculous & premature, I really love these eyeshadow colours! They remind me a little of the kind of colours released by Biba in the ’70s.
