The palette looks interesting, but I haven’t had success with the Times Nine palettes; they’re OK but not great. I had bought all of them and was disappointed by all of them, so this time, I will skip from the get go. I’ll stick with the 15 pan pre-made palettes from Nordstrom.

Well, hard pass on the eyeshadow palette. But the beauty powders and a few of the blushes look great! I’m so into unashamedly BLUSHY blush right now! I plan the rest of my makeup around my blush…

I don’t care for the eye shadow palette (I can recreate the blue and Green with existing eye shadows, don’t wear pink on eyes), but I want so many of the blushes!!!!

Pearl Blossom beauty powder has been released before, right?

Is it just me, or do some of those e/s and blush look chalky? Maybe it’s just my bias against mattes?

Having said that, I’m thinking that ‘Let’s Be Friends’ and ‘This Could Be Fun’ blushes may need to be added to my hoard (um, collection). <3

Also interested to see your reviews on these. I think the palette is a pass. The colors just don’t speak to me and yellow is a hard color for me to pull off no matter what the look is. The blushes look promising, but I have been purchasing so many blushes recently, I think the reviews will have to be in the “life changing” realm to get me on board.

I don’t know if I’ve ever or when the last time I ever said a product was life-changing, so I’m not sure that’s going to happen, lol!

I just love all of this! It’s the first time in a long while that I have been this excited about a new MAC collection. Fingers crossed that these all wear well, especially the eye palette!

That palette, though! So springtime-y fresh and prettier than I had imagined. Oh, how I hope it reviews well, fingers crossed!
The blushes also have some really intriguing shades going on: vivid MAGENTA!!! ?

I don’t need more blush. But Oh My! is so pretty. It reminds me of Colourpop Fruit Stand, so I’m looking forward to your review and comparison swatches Christine 🙂

The blushes are pretty bold! Refreshing to see, though, even if I’m actually not one to often reach for the darker/bolder shades myself.

Not to be a Debbie downer but the eyeshadow palette immediately reminded me of UDxGwen and UD is much better. I love the Gwen palette. If you like how this looks at $50, just grab the Gwen and a few vivid magenta/pink singles from where you want to. Money invested better imho. The blushes are all repromotions of their blushes/beauty powders with either the identical name or a name change. That upsets me. I love MAC. Many staples of mine are MAC. I want to see a new collection that is all new though. It is nice to see some colors from the past!

As far as I know, most of the blushes are new, though given that MAC has released so many shades, I am sure some have close cousins 🙂 Pink Swoon is for sure a repromote!

I was wondering that too- How far out this was planned and if the UD x Gwen Stefani palette influenced it at all, because it has pretty much the same shade offering minus the slew of neutrals UD has.
No special packaging on this collection. I like the shade offerings but I’m not sure it seems unique or up to their upped LE price tags…

MAC usually works 1-2 years in advance, sometimes 3-5 years in advance for certain designers/celebrities. The prices on these is standard MAC pricing, FYI 🙂 If they had done special packaging, they would have had increased prices.

Oh I was thinking the lipsticks were increased… I don’t really follow MAC prices! That’s good to know though, thanks.

I didn’t know their collections were planned that far out. That’s a long time!

Most brands are working that far advance, actually! I’m sure a few things here and there may have shorter lead time, but as far as I know, most brands work pretty far out so they can plan their launches and calendars, plus manufacturing and getting product to print press well in advance of their publication dates alone.

I bet that makes things tricky when it comes to the ever-changing trends that flare up, like liquid lipsticks or stark highlighters or super dewy foundations… I guess my impression was that the turnaround time was a lot faster since I tend to see a lot of similar products hit the market at once, but that might be driven more from formulation innovation. All the more impressive for brands that manage to deliver high quality products in “trending” shades and finishes.

1-2 years in advance? I would not ever guess that. Maybe in two years it will be even better? I am happy to see older colors I loved come back. I wish they would keep the names straight though. I feel stuck in awe on the fact this was thought up 1-2 years ago. Does that apply to all brands? ?

I’m sure every brand is different in their timing, but the ones that I’m aware of are 1-2 years easily. MAC often repromotes, so when MAC releases something with a different name, I have generally found it to be different, even if it is similar to other shades previously released. I don’t find that MAC is guilty of releasing the same thing under a different name, personally.

Those blushes look gorgeous. This is a very dangerous collection for someone like me who loves anything in the pink or coral families. I love the colors in the eye palette, though a few look like they need primer. I really want to see the reviews on these.

Ooh, Pink Swoon is back! I was hoping to see it again. I still have the original one. I wonder how it’ll compare. Do you have the original Christine, for comparison?

I like the colours but some of the swatches look iffy to me. Bright pink on the eyes is hard for me to pull off as I’ve fair skin and green eyes, but they can be used as blush instead. I do like the eye palette, it’s pretty, however Sushi Flower looks patchy ?.

A few of the blushes are so wantable – and the names are very cute too…Let’s Be Friends, This Could be Fun and Life’s a Picnic, especially. Even Oh My looks like a shade I could and would wear. But there are only 2 or 3 shades in the eyeshadow palette that I would wear (and they’re similar to so many shades I have already).

I don’t really buy too many MAC eye shadows any more unless they have something special going on with them like the Dazzleshadows or Colordrenched Pigments.The pigments in this collection sound like they will be really nice.That said I really like the look of Floridazzle and Bird’s Eye View.That brown Naturally Fabulous and Sushi Flower don’t look like they swatched too well!I like the look of most of the colors so I’ll make my decision based on your reviews.The blushes are lovely?I really like Spring Flock,This Could Be Fun,and What I Fancy.

These blushes are gorgeous!! I’m really loving Spring Flock and What I Fancy. Idk about Sunny Surprise, it looks like it may not show up on my NC25 skin.

Floridazzle, Elegant Friend, and Weirdly Wonderful are calling my name, but I’d have no use for all the pinks in the eyeshadow palette, bummer. Most of the blushes look too warm and/or matte to really appeal to me

These are some really vibrant pinks! Sunny Surprise and Spring Flock look nice. This will most likely be a pass for me, save for a beauty powder, a few blushes or maybe the pigments. Most of these are not colors I gravitate toward or use. I’m actually quite relieved – I need to be on a low-buy for a few months, thank you Tom Ford.

The colours are all so bright and beautiful; very spring-like! But I definitely want to read Christine’s reviews before purchasing anything because, to me, some of the swatches look very dry. We shall see…..

OMG! I can’t wait to go swatch these blushes and lipsticks at the store! They are all so pretty! I’m going to have to compromise on my budget though. LOL
