Not too excited. This is a Holiday collection?! lol. I am sorry. At this point. I am just saturated with Mac’s LE collections. I really don’t know how you do it.

Same. Too much effort just to see everything sold out or be of poor quality. I stick to permanent collections only aside from if I see some of the LE stuff at a CCO.

A CCO is a Cosmetics Company Outlet. They’re places where umbrella brands like Estee Lauder or Lancome basically have outlet stores. I go to one south of Portland (the Estee Lauder one has MAC, the Lancome one has stuff like Urban Decay) and they have a lot of cool stuff. The selection can be somewhat limited in certain areas (they only had a few lipsticks and a few lip liners) but they had a HUGE selection of blushes, eyeshadows, and even stuff like the mineralize skinfinishes (I got Lightscapade for about 50% off!) and a bunch of the LE collection stuff from random times (I got an ombre blush from the Proenza Schouler collection from Summer 2014). I also got some stuff like the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and some brushes and some Clinique stuff there. The Estee Lauder store one was called The Cosmetics Company Store and the Lancome one was called Lancome-Designer Fragrances & Cosmetic Co. If you can find one in you’re area they are DEFINITELY worth checking out as they’ve been a total game-changer for me. Also to give a nod to who I heard about it from, it was a youtuber named Jessica Murphy (JAMBeauty89).

Thanks Anne.I had never heard of that! I don’t think there are any close to me. But there may be some on my drive to Columbus. I’m going there Tues. There are a bunch of outlets. I am going to research that! Thank you. I know there is the online allcosmeticswholesale.com. I never really found it to be too much of a huge discount. But, it is generally some sale prices of Nars,Occ,Mac as well as Loreal,etc. Just throwing that out there.It’s worth looking sometime. πŸ™‚

This is so early! Is that normal for MAC? I’m an Elie Goulding fan, so maybe I’ll treat myself to one of these pieces depending on the reviews. πŸ™‚

They’ve taken to releasing initial info like who they’re doing a collab with pretty early on, which I think is to beat some of the leaks, but they don’t release the REAL info (at least not officially) until much closer to the actual launch date.

My thoughts exactly. It’s more like the summer collections I’ve been seeing elsewhere. Definitely would not be looking for something like this in the fall/winter seasons.

I want it all! I love these neutral colors! Can’t believe I have to wait until the winter to get my hands on this stuff.

I need MAC to release a cartoon LE like Archies and Venomous Villains. I missed those two and now paying hefty prices to get the lipsticks from resellers :/

Oh and pleaseeeeeee let it rest with the reds. We hardly get any soft or muted pinks LE so far and where’s that color of the year Marsala?? Pretty useless to crown it color of the year and we dont get it shoved to our faces

I agree. I started buying makeup again after the Archies collection. That collection was so badass with so many good products. I really want Prom Princess blush. MAC rarely releases a deep plum blush. I wish they would bring back dirty plum. No limited edition collection was as interesting since.

It’s so plain jane. It’s like dΓ©jΓ  vu. With these repeated neutrals in these collections. Come on mac amp it up. I wish miley would have came out with a mac collection, besides her lipstick which I love!

Seriously if not for the MAC logo I’d think it was Bobbi Brown, but even that line has been edging out of the box. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, just not my interest right now.

I spy some sort of cream shadow product in the bottom left? What is that?
I actually like all of these colors, but since I like these types of colors I already own them and won’t be losing any sleep staying up for this launch. (or any other launch, because MAC is not worth cutting into my sleep time, ha).

This looks like the revamped Mac Cindarella collection. It just looks more bronzy or is she darker than that collection

December??? Really? That’s like waaay too long to wait.

That said, this collection just looks fantastic! Right up my alley πŸ™‚ For now I’m definitely interested in the duo and the patentpolish lipstick. Really hope the quality is there, cause I will definitely be stocking my MAC store to check it out.

zzzzzzzzzzzz….what the…..this is a holiday collection??? I think the colors are pretty for a natural summer look, but these colors have been done a thousand times before. I can go to the drugstore and get these colors. Where is the creativity? Maybe all of these LE collections have just drained MAC dry….

Holiday 2015? Which holiday? July 4th? LOL. Seeing as it is only the first week of June and not even summer yet, this kind of advance publicity smacks of desperation. We haven’t even gotten all the summer collections yet and the fall collections are still to come. By the time the holiday collections are rolling out, this one by MAC will be old news–definitely not the way to build anticipation. All my griping aside, though, it does look very pretty but more like a summer collection.

Not too excited by what i see, the same blush/bronzer as the RiRi (i like typing that lol) Hibiscus Kiss one? Plus i don’t like those lip pencils if they’re the same ones from Sharon Osbourne

Ha – you’re not alone. I have no idea who she is either but even if Audrey Hepburn came back to life and was the face of this collection, I wouldn’t buy it.

She is a modern day pop star. I do wish they would collab with some of the older generation stars or beauty bloggers(like ColourPop does). Seems like they are catering only to the college aged and below sometime. Although, I was impressed with the MacXToledo collection.

The packaging and colors are making me think they’re going for a very luxe vibe, I hope that by the holidays they’ll have fixed the issues with LE quality and made it worth it! (I really hope the quality is better than the last year or so of collections bc that lipstick up top is the most beautiful shade of pink for my coloring)

This collection looks interesting. I like the packaging from what I can see so far. But I’m guessing this won’t be too WOC friendly though. I can’t wait for more pics

Holiday 2015….um, isn’t it a bit early even to be putting out hints about this? By the time it rolls around, the excitement (however much can be generated by a “holiday” collection that looks as dull as this one) will have fizzled!

I think this is the first time I’ve seen a holiday *bronzer*, not highlighter.
That said if that stick turns out to be a shadestick I’m on it.
l…may also buy the quad. I’m such a sucker for those exact colors.

I’m kind of interested…
It’s a different approach to Holiday. I see why some are commenting that it has more of a summer vibe, but i think (and this is, of course, just a guess derived from this ONE photo) that MAC is trying to jive off of the traditional glitter and metallics that are often part of Holiday collections and steer it in a slightly different direction (more neutral with gold, bronzy, peachy). If that is the case, it doesn’t read Christmas or winter, it reads more “Holiday”, i.e. gatherings, get-togethers, New Year’s Eve. That nail color, the shimmers, the bronze and peach hues…I can totally see it working for that sort of thing. That’s just what I am seeing…

This ought to be an interesting one….summer shades in winter. But it *may* have some cool stuff included, especially if the formula is on fleek.

It’s a cool idea for a collab, especially since they insist on doing so many, so often! She’s got a good look that would inspire a very neutral, pretty collection.

Like.. I don’t even care much for Ellie Goulding herself so I don’t know why but.. that collection somehow calls to me SO LOUD πŸ˜€

I hope these are as good quality as they look because these are right up my nieces Ally and she was she has been hinting she’s wanting Mac make up for Christmas like every time I see her. She’s very simple when it comes to makeup right now natural colors . Than again I may just put together a quad, buy a mineral blush and throw in a nude cream-sheen gloss. And call it a day.
