Yes! I was already looking for swatches of that gloss! I live overseas and the collection is already available here, but I was not sure if I’d like Nefertiti. It’s beautiful and looks like it would pare well with Apricot Gold.

I received my items today, but might go back to order some more ;).

Saw this in person. The lipsticks are gorgeous and feel nice on the lips. The cheek products in this collection, Temptalia did you not get those? Are nice too. However after seeing these eyesshadow swatches, I think I am going to cancel my pre order

Little voice in my head: “No! You don’t need any of these. Just walk away. Yes, I know there are SOOOO many pretty colors in this collection, but you know you can already dupe most of them from your stash. Just. Say. No.”

(Breathes heavy sigh.)

Love the color combos, but quality is def uneven. The shimmers look more like toppers; the mattes are pretty weak. Lips…pretty decent. Def stash shopping for dupes, when you review. EDWARD Hopper? How do I resist, other than scratch off an existing shade and rename? Well, the small Zoeva matte palette has a Hopper theme. Hopper really speaks to me. Getting that ‘This could have been a contender’ vibe from this collection.

Nudge Fudge and Sunset rose are so pretty and I’m always attracted to these types of shades! I’m gonna wait for your dupes. That Moss Green eyeliner has peaked my curiosity as well!

Not sure how I feel about this collection. I am not seeing anything earth shaking here and I would have expected brighter shades as Padma does where brighter shades most of the time. I do like a couple of the lippies and the lip gloss so will have to await your reviews.

I was actually hoping Nude Fudge would be MORE brown, but it looks a lot like a darker Twig kind of color.

Is the Sunset quad missing a swatch? I think the darker matte pink/purple is missing the swatch.

I was looking forward to the bordeuxline eyeliner but I am worried after seeing the swatch—it looks uneven! Too bad because I love the shade.

I am saving up for UD Backtalk palette and can’t wait for your review!!

Totally loving the Mossy Green pencil and a few of the eyeshadows are nice but liking only 2 in a quad doesn’t make for good value and the quality of them, based on your swatches, shows a few of them to be pretty poor. But Mossy Green will be coming home with me.

That’s a shade that, to the best of my knowledge (because I searched for it) wasn’t released in Canada but it got me thinking of Sephora’s Snakeskin Dress which was discontinued but which was such a beautiful liner (I’m glad I have a backup, as well as the pressed shadow which is now also discontinued). I’m certainly going to pick that one up. Some of the lipsticks are tempting too BUT I have got to start finishing what I already own.

This is one of the nicest collections I have seen from MAC for awhile. I really like the colours and shades chosen in the lipsticks, eye pencils and quads.
Now to the quality – some of those eye pencils look a bit under pigmented and some of the mattes in the quads look a bit patchy.
The lipsticks are all gorgeous.

Well, aren’t I in trouble here with the splendid lipsticks and Nefertiti Lipglass! How do I pick just one or two? Nude Fudge, Blue Blooded, Mittai Pink and Apricot Gold are all coming for my wallet!

70’s Sunset was the quad I was interested in, and I do know that actual lid application can go way better than arm swatches would suggest, but those 2 mattes though.

The packaging and the lipsticks are just beautiful but the eyeshadows quads are breaking my heart. As pretty as they are I won’t invest my $ on what looks like swatches from any of the Mac x 9 palettes they have out. I had high hopes for this collection, looks like I’ll only be picking up mossy green eyeliner.

Well the Colour combos and packaging got me and I thought thenatural Brown was more purpley. I loved the pop of color in each quad but seeing them swatched the pigment isn’t too great, the green will look more yellow and I do have a dupe for the blue I think.

Booo

Maybe I’ll get a blush not a fan of duo colors together but I usually like Mac blushes.

I’m trying to cut back on lipsticks.

I am trying to cut back on lipsticks also, Janine, says the girl who just ordered 10 from YesStyle. I promised myself that after my great lipstick purge I was going to slow down on the lipstick purchases and then I saw a couple of beautiful shades and decent prices with the recent YesStyle sale and my resistance crumbled. I also am planning on ordering Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Queen. I need my tiny head examined. My daughter and I are going to Europe in the fall and we have already decided to limit our lipsticks to 3 a piece. How do I choose?

I just got my first high end Pat McGrath the other day. It instantly collected in my lines..sexology disappointing for $38. This collection of lipsticks don’t scream spring to me. I love spring colors.

It’s hard to resist lipsticks are usually the cheapest thing and so easy to collect!

Not sure what you are referring to regarding Padma Lakshmi and Wonder Women. I only know her from Top Chef. Was she in the movie, Wonder Woman? I know she didn’t play Wonder Women but could have been in the movie and I missed it.
Disappointing about the Pat McGrath lipstick. I don’t know if it is related to the shade you picked up but the couple that I have actually seem to smooth over my lip lines and are very flattering in terms of how it wears, for me. Expensive lipstick to have it not work for you.

I had high hopes for the 70’s Sunset Eyeshadow Quad but the two mattes look dry and patchy. Glad I purchased the Chanel Première Éclosion quad from their recent Dernières neiges Collection (same range of colours).
I love the Sunset Rose though; it does seem to have the perfect balance of rose and brown in it.

This looks like a pretty decent collection. I love the colors they chose. A few shades such as Sumac and All’s Rosy don’t look so hot, could be worked with. I think Hopper Blue is really pretty.
