I’m always down for a new MSF. I wish MAC would do more original eye kohl shades. I got so excited and then was like Oh, it’s just Teddy.

The blush duo and skinfinish look lovely, but I’m not sure I care enough about Caitlyn Jenner to buy something with her name emblazoned on the packaging. I know that a person is not their family, but I want to think about the Kardashian/Jenners as little as humanly possible.

I agree. I’m no Kardashian/Jenner fan and I do think Caitlyn has overshadowed many other transgender activists. I’ll continue to purchase Viva Glam lipsticks instead.

Glad others are struggling with this. I certainly support Jenner in her transition. But I don’t know if I can get over the Kardashian connection.

I know what you mean but maybe we shouldn’t be judging by looks so much. I remember the very famous Annie Leibovitz photo shoot and, at the time, commenting with friends that it would be interesting to see how she looked dressed in her own clothes and if she’d done her own hair and makeup, like millions of women do every day. Having seen photos of Caitlyn since, well, that photo shoot was not a very accurate depiction of how she really looks. We often complain, as women, that the makeup and cosmetic companies use 12 year olds to show foundation and makeup and skin care items that are aimed at 30+ or 40+ women and how much we’d appreciate more realistic, less air brushed/photo shopped images of women. I’m not suggesting that this particular photo hasn’t had the daylights manipulated out of it, but I think everyone sort of gets what I’m saying….maybe show Caitlyn how she really looks, on a good day but also in a realistic series of photos.

Nice collection, but that promo image has got to go. Caitlyn looks like a corpse, it’s the least flattering photo I have ever seen of someone. How unfortunate!

Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t so kind about the picture either. He said it looks like the funeral home did a really good job…it was hilarious.

No thanks. While I applaud Caitlyn Jenner for bringing the issue of transgender more into the public eye (making it look “easy”, not so much), I still cannot get over the very bad taste left in my mouth by her handling of a car accident she was involved in when she was still “Bruce” and in which a woman was killed when Jenner’s car slammed into hers. I don’t know if things have finally been resolved but at the time, some not very admirable behaviour and comments (because the woman was older and her children grown, they really weren’t missing out on much because of her death….stuff like that).

I’ve learned to not believe everything I read. Since none of us know what she did or didn’t do, it’s just best to avoid and discuss what this board is about….our love of cosmetics.

I’m not a fan of MAC eyeshadow, but I love their lipsticks. I’ll be waiting for swatches of the rosy beige one. I have enough red lipstick. The Mineralized Skinfinish looks a bit dark for my very fair skin 🙁

I appreciate open discussion and think it’s best not to silence others that have different opinions from your own.

Over all collection looks good but not unique.

We’ve discussion controversial MAC collections here in past – the Rodarte and Tribe ones are 2 that come to mind – as well as other lines that have used images degrading to women, for example. So we don’t just “avoid and discuss what this board is about…our love of cosmetics”. I think there are many here whose makeup choices are linked to things they consider important, like animal rights, the nature of the person to whom a collection is “linked”, etc.

Actually, I’m all for discussion about the collection, however, the comments were bordering on libel of Caitlyns’ character. The issues with Rodarte and Vibe Tribe were issues with MAC. I personally don’t like or dislike Caitlyn, but I don’t think someone’s character should be freely trashed.

I like Caitlyn, and this is a really elegant collection, I saw swatches of the products on Instagram and they look beautiful. I think I will pick up a few to support her.

I like the packaging of this collection although the actual products are not that exciting. Will have to see how the shadows look but probably not going to get anything from this collection.

Gross, MAC. Caitlyn Jenner seems to be all about trans rights, but really, she’s all about HER bank account. She was against gay marriage (and denies the fact she is a lesbian after transitioning!) until the public turned against her, then “changed her mind.” I am deeply disappointed in MAC. This leaves a bad taste in my mouth that won’t easily rinse out for months — or perhaps years . . .

If Mac wanted to promote a collection celebrating transgendered women, why not Laverne Cox? Caitlyn Jenner has been anything but supportive of LGBT rights. On a purely aesthetic level, how did this photo get approved by Mac or Jenner? Oof.

Urgh. -_- If MAC wants a transgendered activist, then they should have gone to Laverne Cox. Laverne is beautiful, classy, and broken down many walls and barriers. This is another prime example of privilege. Caitlyn only received this opportunity because of the Jenner/Kardashian train and has done really nothing for transgendered people. It’s just super annoying and I find it shameful.

Please just remember that “transgendered” isn’t a word. The correct adjective is transgender, or trans, because it describes how the person is. Transgendered implies something being done to a person, which isn’t grammatically correct or true in the least.

Also, I agree that a Laverne collection would be incredible!

There are definitely some pretty shades here; the beige lipstick and the peach/bronze blush especially 🙂 The MSF might even work as a bronzer on me, so I look forward to seeing this collection in person. And wow, nice arms, Ms. Jenner!

The colors here don’t look super exciting to me at first glance, but I always look forward to seeing swatches! I am also excited for Caitlyn and appreciate the press release emphasizing inclusivity with their “All Ages, All Races, and All Sexes” line. I thought that was a thoughtful touch.

While I do agree that the tag: “All Ages, All Races, and All Sexes” was a nice touch, it wasn’t needed don’t ya think? Like there are some fierce men MUA who has already made this clear. I feel like they HAD to add it and it was a bit extra but nice.

I am sucker for a red lippie. Also, I am interest in the skin finish, as some of their permanent shades are too orange/red for my NC55 skintone.

They could have done so much better than Caitlyn Jenner. I would have preferred a Laverne Cox collection. That woman slays! I won’t be buying any of this.

Caitlyn Jenner’s politics and her behavior towards LGBT rights makes this a no for me, even though both the eye shades and the MSF are calling it out my name.

I don’t like her, or the collection, but guys, it’s not ‘transgendered’, it’s ‘transgender’. Please. A paper that is yellowed BECOMES yellowed, a paper that is yellow is ‘yellow’. We do not become transgendered, we are transgender. I don’t want to start arguments, but seeing some of these comments, as a trans person myself, makes my head hurt. Please be more sensitive.

Quincey, this probably isn’t the place to discuss this in detail but I’m confused. I don’t think anyone used the term “transgendered” disrespectfully but I don’t see how using it as an adjective is any more incorrect or disrespectful than saying “blue-eyed” or “right handed”….it’s the adjective, rather than the noun….”a blue-eyed person”, “a transgendered person”.

This is late, but thank you so much, Christine. You’re the best. It’s tiring and difficult for me to explain, even being a trans person, and having to explain it every time, going through the effort of doing it, then having someone still not get it, is too much for me lately. <3 thank you for the link and your great allyship. This is what an ally looks like.

I just got the email from MAC “For those who embrace life” and then open to find the picture of CJ looking passed out or dead. I will never, ever understand the choice of this photo to promote this campaign. I wish that these had been the colors of the Mariah Carey collab; I really really wanted a lipstick with a butterfly on it in a glittery silver tube, but I had to really work to find a color that I might possibly ever wear. These colors look more appealing, but I’m not buying anything now, anyway.

So I see this came out January 5th, and it is on the MAC website but not Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, etc. I thought it came out in stores on the 5th also? Not that I care…but just curious if major department stores decided not to sell this collection? I don’t blame them if they did.
