How exciting, thank you for the swatches Christine! Looking forward to the full reviews but I already see a few pieces I like!

Hi Christine! Are you able to clarify which dates are correct please? This post says online May 7th and stores May 14th, but the press release you posted says online May 14th and stores May 21st. I am beyond excited for this collextio!n

Hit or miss for me. All of the bronzers look too orange, warm, or dark for me. Lippies and glosses look nice but MAC has done those colors before. The shadows look surprisingly good. The eyeliners don’t look so great. The packaging looks cute and distinctive – bright bold colors for summer and washboard imprint of the powders. Would be cool if they added some drops of water or soap bubbles on the packaging to go with the theme

Oh man, I thought after seeing swatches I’d change my mind on this collection, but nope. It feels so underwhelming! I like the look of Hipness, but I think I’ll wait and hear your thoughts on it before making a decision. I was interested in the highlight powder but the swatches didn’t interest me at all! More money in my pocket, I guess πŸ™‚

The bronzer colours look promising, but I recently caved on the new YSL Teint Saharienne. I’ll take a pass on the technakohl pencils too.. they look rather painful and I like the creaminess of Marc Jacobs so much better. Hipness blush is super pretty. I think the Perma Press trio is lovely.. disappointed in the swatches for the green trio. That’s easily pared my shopping list down to manageable.

I do not have it yet… Just ordered yesterday. Read that it is supposed to be ‘groundbreaking’ in terms of bronzers. The ‘blur’ factor and the ability to wear the product in a couple of ways had me landed like a big fish.

I appear to be in the minority (although maybe everyone’s just freaking out about the packaging), but this collection is just so “meh” to me. I guess that’s more for everyone else, though. lol Thanks for swatching and posting, Christine!

Well shoot — after seeing your swatches I’m thinking that the nude lipsticks won’t even show up on me. I’m still looking fwd to your reviews! πŸ™‚

This comes out right around my birthday. I guess I know what I’m buying myself!

That being said, “wash and dry” is such as odd theme….

My initial reaction was forget it Mac- tired of your constant LE releases. I don’t see a ton of things that would be unique to my collections. Also my wish list is super long with all the other great stuff which has recently launched. I have my eye on the highlight powder, the Cripsp whites blush, a liner or two maybe , maybe a gloss, and shadow. I have almost bough Creme de nude before . I think I have some pretty close dupes. It’s a huge collection (again,lol). But, I’m not seeing a lot of interesting stuff. But that may be because my wallet is in hangover phase. Lol!

This one will be a doozy – the packaging alone is going to make it hard to get if past history is any indication so you may find you’re better off without too many things catching your eye!

Real nice, I just wished they had a matte lipstick but that is not gonna stop me from picking up Steam heat & maybe Morange (I know it permanent) but the package is on fire.. Maybe a bronzing powder or highlighter..I don’t know I am NW45 in the summer I may be NC50. Christine, Do u think I will need a bronzer or highlighter?

Steam Heat and Morange will both wear down to a fairly matte finish, IMO!

I don’t think you need either – it’s really more about what would you use/reach for! πŸ™‚ I rarely REACH for bronzer myself, though I don’t have any issues with them… I just prefer blush + highlight on cheeks and/or a contour!

Whelp, I might actually get 1 or 2 things from this. I’m a sucker for packaging, and that sure drew me in this time. Last time I liked MAC packaging this much was the Alluring Aquatic collection (which I don’t have).

I’ll have to see how a few things perform and I already have some of the cheek colors, but that packaging is mighty pretty…

Crisp Whites, Golden Rinse, and Steam Heat will be mine! Those Technakohls look awful though, I was really hoping Sudsy would be nice πŸ™

Ah yes, a whole collection named for cleaning and domestic duty. I see they wanted to be progressive with this naming scheme. πŸ˜›

I’m digging the lip products, but nothing else is really grabbing me. It looks like a decent collection over all, though, and the packaging is cute.

Christine , thank you for getting these swatches up so quickly!!! A few have my interest: Freshen Up, Tumble Dry ( only because it looks more opaque than most Lustres, I do not own even ONE Lustre) or Morange, and perhaps, depending on how it applies on the lid, Warm Wash. Permanent Press is gorgeous, but could be overkill if I am fortunate enough to nab MUFE Nudes You Need.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but this is probably the worst MAC summer collection I’ve ever seen lol. I usually want a lot of things but this looks like it’ll be a small haul for me. The only things I know I want for sure are Morange, Color Matters and the brushes. All of which I want just for the packaging lol. I do like the way the deeper bronzer and green palette looks too though. So I may just get those too but overall I’m disappointed with the actual products. Especially the highlight powder. It had the potential to be great but that swatch looks horrid lol

The packaging is really pretty, but the colors seem even more “been there,” and it is always strange to me to release a blush and “highlight” powder that are so similarly hued.

The packaging is beautiful but I’m just SMH so freaking hard at this theme. Laundry… really? REALLY?!?!?! What the eff… so confusing… so not sexy and glamorous…

OMG, I love the look of this collection. Just the packaging alone is getting me. I may have to get Morange coz I really want a real orange. And the highlighter/blush compact is just right for me.

Oh I really don’t like the packaging and the colors have been done over and over. : ( I guess I lean towards more glamorous packing of girly packaging?

I like a few things. We shall see what gets released over here – and when! I ended up getting a fair bit of the Toledo collection because it was on counter and in stock for quite a while. The oranges in this one make me happy, though *g*.

Or, you know, it could be up now, and Freshen Up could be sold out already! I did manage to snag Crisp Whites blush, plus Morange lipstick and the Warm Wash eye set, so I’m happy.

I’m a little bit dissapointed. After going crazy the last two years with Alluring aquatic and temperature rising, I was waiting for this collection. But it’s a big meh for me. The only thing that looks promising are the sculpting bronzers and even those don’t blow my mind.

Should I get both Crisp Whites & Freshen Up?? If using the lighter portions of Freshen Up, can I get the same look as Crisp Whites? I’m trying to save where I can πŸ™‚

Most of this collection doesn’t really stand out to me, but I am really digging that Warm Wash eyeshadow trio! How is the texture and pigmentation of those? Is it like normal MAC shadows or is it different? I love the colors but I don’t want to spend $30 on bad eyeshadow quality.

Oh- oh, I can already tell from the swatches what the ratings are going to be on these……not all good.
Love the steam heat lipstick. Some of the colours in the eye shadow palettes look pretty feint to me. Oh dear!

I never buy MAC but I always love the full collection shots you do lol always so clean and nicely placed…. If I tried anything like this it would be lipsticks full of cat hair/things being knocked away everywhere lol

Christine, which bronzer do you think is most suitable for fair skin? which did you like best out of all the colors? i absolutely LOVE the packaging so i definitely want to pick one of the compacts up but I’m wondering as to which one!

The packaging is really eye-catching, the top reminds me to the Alluring Aquatic collection (i wish i got something of that one, the packaging was skjfdlk!!) i’ve always wanted morange, but idk if it would make my complexion more yellow-ish so i’ve been skeptical about it (i THINK i’m a nc30). the collection itself looks meh but as the packaging stan i am maybe i will reconsider hah

I hate to say it, as I normally LOVE the summer collections… but this looks pretty lame to me πŸ™ I can’t use either of the eye products featured as they don’t agree with my eyes, the blushes you reviewed didn’t seem that amazing, and all the lip colors don’t interest me. Hopefully the bronzers and the brushes are great, because then I’ll gladly get those! I think I’m more excited for those extra dimension eyeshadows that are coming soon, legendary lure is finally mine.

It has already been launched in the Netherlands. I got the studio sculpt bronzing powder in Delicates and creme d’ Nude lipstick. Can’t wait to receive it.

I’m just kind of meh about this too – I don’t think the packaging is that great, especially when compared to Alluring Aquatics and Temperature Rising. And so many permanent and repromotes. Good for my wallet I guess. Just bummed b/c I really look forward to the summer collection.

I love the look of this collection. I’m really fair so the peachy tones really appeal to me and I absolutely adore the packaging. I couldn’t wait three months for it to arrive in Dubai so I did a Nordstrom order yesterday. The best part of that is that it gives me three months to fall in love and restock when it does arrive. I picked up tumble dry lipstick, domestic diva lip gloss, Hipness blush, green clean eye shadow (I love the toledo greens palette so this really appealed to me), freshen up highlighter AND the golden rinse bronzer. I was a bit iffy about the bronzer but impulse got the better of me! I think I went a little mad but hey ho what’s a girl to do :p

Thanks it arrived today, woop woop! I absolutely adore domestic diva lip gloss I will definitely be picking up a couple more when it launches here. I like the tumble dry lustre but wish it was a little deeper in colour. The texture works for me though. Blush is fab but I’m glad I didn’t get the crisp whites version as I find the highlighter far too dark for my pale skin. It works swished together as a nice golden blush for me but I couldn’t use it as a highlighter. The sculpting powder surprised me as I was a bit unsure of ordering online given I have only ever owned one bobbie brown bronzer. Well I love it. It is the perfect amount.of bronze for my very fair skin. I will definitely get a back up of this as I aDore the packaging as well. I haven’t tried the eye shadows yet but from switching on my hand I think I will love that too. I’m pretty happy with my summery haul and think this collection is perfect for very fair skin
