OMG! I want! I’ve been so disappointed with what I’ve seen of the Wash & Dry collection, other than the packaging. Now I’ll just save my $$ for this! Do you actually have the pieces in hand, Christine? Can’t wait to see swatches!!!

Hi Jilly,

All I have is the photo and the caption MAC had for the image (they shared it across their social media) – I don’t know anything else, and I definitely don’t have product! I usually get product about a week before the online release date or closer.

Christina Avatar

Wow, the packaging on this is quite beautiful! The colours, while not all that unique, are well put together, so I’ll be interested in seeing reviews. I love that MAC does collaborations with artists from around the world!

Katie Avatar

Aw, man. I don’t want to fight the people that are just going to buy this for the packaging. I love everything in the picture!

Nicole Avatar

Oh Mac is so wishy, washy with their myriad of LE release. Their like your BFF with the revolving door of extravagant boyfriends that you can’t even keep up with some time (we all have those , right?) , lol! But, you gotta love them for it. I guess some don’t. I have learned to embrace it and take it for what it’s worth.This looks like it could possibly straddle the line of tacky and pretty coming from Mac..we will see. 🙂 Thanks for getting this out here for us!

I have just adored some of the Mystery Powders, and they seem to always come with a refill. I wish they would make some of them permanent, the compacts are usually lovely. I am not a big MAC person, but I have a few things that I really like.

Oooh, that packaging looks so elegant!! And the powder/highlighter, blush, and lippies all look so pretty. This is probably going to sell out in a nano-second. Christine, I hope that teal shadow and teal cream shadow/liner performs well for you 🙂

M Avatar

Oh wow. I hope the products perform well because the packaging is gorgeous. I won’t even buy to collect for the packaging if performance sucks though. Not even for that. 🙂

Marvienne Avatar

The fluid line looks like it’s a gorgeous blue! Can’t wait!
I hope there are more lipsticks in this collection.
Right now I am most excited about the Matte lip collection that will be launched in June! 🙂

Sasha Avatar

Holy wow. Between this and the Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson collection, I am in print heaven. I don’t know what those are exactly, hahaha, but I’m going to get one. (Says the lady who’s missed out on ALL of the limited editions in the past two years. Sigh.)

Mary Avatar

I really love the packaging. I can’t wait to see what shades are available in this collection. Hopefully I find something I really want to buy.

i saw promo pics for this a few months ago & have been waiting for an update!! this collection looks so beautiful, first time i want everything in a mac collection 🙂 im crossing my fingers it passes the temptalia test too!

El Avatar

They’re a little late to the blue shadow party. That looks very similar to Illamasqua’s new spring quad, released today (in the UK at least; unsure about rest of world), and a Sleek MakeUP LE quad that came out over a month ago, which I have.

Trina Avatar

I love the packaging! I hate when they leave us hanging on the release date. Not that the release are always reliable lol. the new waterproof foundation that was suppose to be released in the fall they decided to release it yesterday. There is no ryhm or reason to their release times.

Candice Avatar

I don’t have a single MAC special item (I only have one MAC product) but I could see myself getting an item from this set! Too pretty!

Genna Avatar

The packaging is stunning- vintage, girly- a definite eye catcher! I can’t wait to see how these swatch, this is the first MAC collection that has caught my eye in a long time!

Anitacska Avatar

Is it just me or does anyone else think that Mac are now completely out of new ideas and using way too many designer collaborations in the hope of selling their stuff? Yes, this collection does look nice, but if it wasn’t in fancy packaging, most people wouldn’t look twice.

Nancy T Avatar

The packaging is phenomenal! However, I think this is one time blues *may* just work for me, but only because they appear more teal with a deep, smoky one as well. I’ll have to wait and see whether they are as they appear to be. Now as for the lipstick, it looks luscious and perhaps a burnt apricot? It will be interesting to see how these work out!

Astrild Avatar

I don’t usually purchase anything for the packaging, but this collection will be the exception, I guess. Wait for the reviews though.

Ellin Avatar

Now this is some beautiful packaging. Wow. I haven’t bought Mac products in years but that may change when this comes out. I’m eyeing that powder and lipstick.

Hi Christine!
Tanks for the amazing posts you write. I love them! 🙂

They told me that the Guo Pei collection will be release on October 1st, do you know anything about it?

Also, if you know when it will be released in England that would be amazing (I will be there and do not want to miss it! I was waiting for this collection he whole year!!!
