The packaging is actually super cute! The outside of the palettes and blushes have a raised matte and glossy finish with designs related to Stranger Things, like Hawkins High and the Upside-down, even the little mirror protector/dust covers are opaque and covered with art. There’s 2 makeup brushes too. It reminded me of old MAC collabs, I like it and the colors all swatch well!

I actually think these eyeshadow palettes look quite good – the swatches indicate that they are of reasonably good quality and pigmentation – something you can’t always say about MAC’s releases these days. Whilst I do think that the Code Red shade looks out of place in The Void palette (why a red?) it may tie in with the show (which I have never watched).

i dont like the packaging. but surprisingly i like the different colours of the eyeshadows. they are different to a lot of colours been released by many brands lately.

I’d rather put a hole in my head with a dull spoon than purchase more makeup at this point (I can’t believe I’m at this point, honestly, I’ve loved makeup for thirty years straight), buuut, I rather liked what they did with this collection. Fun colors, cute packaging that’s not so niche it only appeals to diehard fans, nothing bulky, everything is usable. Yeah, I like it. MAC slowed down their releases (or maybe CP sped up?) and I’ve rather liked a lot of them. This one, the holiday magic one, that arty one, some collabs, etc.. They’ve quietly plugged along and now I’m back on board. I’ve got a few of these on my favorites list and if any go on sale I’d pick up a piece to have it. So glad you were able to swatch the collection. I even want the face brush!
