Wasnยดt there more information a month or two ago saying that it was more of a smaller collection and that Lightscapade will be repromoted? I think I read that on another blog, but that could just be my fantasy ๐Ÿ˜€

Just because you don’t know who they are doesn’t mean they’re any less of a “celebrity”. That’s not a dig at you or anything, I’m just saying.

Sala Avatar

no, it’s true. i’m pretty lame and out of the loop as far as celebrities go. that’s why im getting tired of it…just a personal preference.

Samantha P Avatar

Pretty sure she wasn’t saying that Hayley Williams was not a celebrity, but simply stating that she doesn’t care for themes involving a mildly famous person.

Bea Avatar

Okay.. but no one really cares if you don’t know who the celebrity is..(that’s what Google is for) if you like the product buy it, if you don’t keep it moving. For those who do know about Hayley Williams will buy the product because they love it or they love her! or simply both. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love paramore. Love Mac. Sad that it will all sell out in a minute.

Oh and to the comment above: Okay but no one really cares about your opinion either. If you care about someone’s comment, ok. If you don’t, keep it moving. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, until now I had never heard of this person/band, either; then again, I listen to legit punk, not something described as “pop punk” (really?). Either way, orange is not a color for me, so it’s a pass. Also, it would seem this collection should have been released last year, along with the rest of all the orange makeup…

Nikki Avatar

I’m half way worried it’ll sell out quick but a lot of people will either be like idk who this is who cares or orange? i dont want orange. I think us paramore fans are safe ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, whenever I go to my MAC location Lighscapade is always available! Are they not re-vamping the packaging for Hayley’s collection?? Will anything be different about it? Either way, super excited about this collab! Sounds like Noise you shall be mine! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m excited for this lippie!! MAC? Hayley Williams? A bright matte orange lipstick? It’s mine!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope I can pull it off

Veronica Avatar

I like the look of the collection, though I have doubts that the lipstick would work on my cool-toned skin. ๐Ÿ™‚ The colors are very Paramore, though.

Christine I’m so excited about this collection I love hayley!!! And I have been told Coral tones look the bets on me so a bit of a tap of matte orange will do me wonders in the summer time. Fun and flirty I’m excited ๐Ÿ˜€

I think I want that eyeshadow and like everyone lightscapade sounds good. I’m sure I can’t pull off the lipstick and have similar nail colors.

Mercedes Avatar

So excited!!!! but why can’t MAC do something with the ultimate bad ass, glamorous, awesome GWEN STEFANI!!!????? that would be the best thing ever!!

xamyx Avatar

It may be because she has a contract with L’Oreal, but I would have to agree. Then again, it would be all the more disappointing if the collection was a big fail. I would personally expect more from a collection Gwen Stefani attatched her name to.

Mercedes Avatar

You’re right!! well, I hope that when she’s done with L’Oreal she will do something with MAC, and it better be good cause Gwen is an ICON and all the young singers out now have been influenced by her as far as style and makeup!!! she deserves to have her own collection!!!! I see reds, chola,rasta,harajuku, and Marilyn lol and a whole lot of awesomeness!!!!

I think this is kind of a neat collection. I’d rather get something from this one than the Rihanna one, I’m just not a big fan. Paramore brings me back some good memories.

Elena Avatar

I’m so getting a backup for Lightscapade.
Christine, I wish they could repromote By Candlelight, hopefully they’ll do so this 2013…do u think that could be possible? If you know anything I’m sure you’ll be the first to let us know, Im literally dying for that one and its nowhere to be found.

maebeee Avatar

But wasn’t orange the IT colour last year? Sephora Pantone and everyone else were pushing orange last year. Lightscapade is amazing but it’s not innovative. Mac used to be a leader not a follower.

Naomi Avatar

Does anyone know if you have to buy all four together? Or if you can get the items separately? I saw something about the whole thing being $65, and that is just too much money for me, as I don’t wear makeup too often. I just want the lipstick and the nail polish. Don’t need the other things…

Alicia Avatar

Can someone tell me if this collection is going to be extended internationnaly ? Im in France and i’d like to know if we’re going to have it here? Thanks in advance for your answers !!

Jeanette Avatar

I received daydreaming and am really disappointed, I think its either a re promote or another name but same color…I already have this color,just can’t get the color because its in my palette that is depotted and I didn’t write the name down.

Vanessa B Avatar

I think I will get the eyeshadow. I never thought anything of Paramore until they opened for No Doubt. Changed my mind Haley rocked that ish out! I purchased a good amount of their songs after hearing them live. I just think this collection needs a little more umph to match her personality!
