I am getting the redhead msf, all the redhead eyeshadows and Henna from the brunette collection.
Are the collections coming out tomorrow or Friday, I am so confused?

I think they’re coming out in STORES on Thursday, and ONLINE on Friday.

It annoys me that they changed the online date for the sale, but whatever. I’ll take what I can get.

Should be Thursday for in-store. I believe the Friday launch is for online, and of course, there are some stores who haven’t received their shipments–so you may want to call ahead!

* Brushes #165, #214, and #226
* Redhead Mineralize Skinfinish
* Blonde Mineralize Skinfinish
* B-Babe lipstick
* Live and Dye lipgloss

Actually, adding to my list because I just viewed your swatches! O_O

* Brunette MSF
* Marquise d’ Lipstick
* What A Do Lipstick
* All’s Fair Lipstick
* Soft Wave Lipgloss

I think it was Thursday for online.. but who knows? They keep changing dates. I want the Blonde MSF, the BBabe lippie, Redhead MSF, and the Fi Fi fo Fum ES.. good hunting!

well a lot more after seeing your swatches LOL and probably even more than that after you post the lip swatches!! I didn’t even want any lipglasses til I saw your pics, now I’m doomed!!

This is really hard for me 🙁 I want to get a lot of stuff but I’m on a budget so….this is my list for now:

Marquis D’ l/s
All’s Fair l/s
Strawberry Blonde l/g
Live and Dye l/g
Soft Wave l/g
214 brush

I’m passing on the MSF and I have enough highlighting powders already. The eyeshadows don’t interest me at all. It’s all about the lips with this collection!

pretty much everything haha. i loveee this collection and after seeing what a dissapointment hello kitty is i will be able to get more.

all 3 brushes
all 3 MSFs
Evening Aura
Strawberry Blonde
Red Devil
Marquise D’

Nothing, I am just not that in to MAC. I refuse to buy eyeshadow that gets all over my face when I am trying to put it on my eyes. Their eyeshadows just have way way to much fall out for me to even consider. That is why I love my Chanel!

Thanks for your swatches Christine! I am planning on:
All’s Fair
Strawberry Blonde
Henna and maybe one other e/s
Blonde MSF

So excited!

Redhead MSF..possibly the Blonde, too
100 Strokes
Deep Shade or Top Knot…not sure..but i like dark e/s
Red Devil l/g

maybe Blowdry l/s, Live and Dye l/g

I haven’t purchased anything from MAC in a year, but I’m very attracted to Red Devil l/g. Although, it does look an awful lot like a slimshine I have. The slimshine was one of the few that was cut when they made them perm, though.

100 Strokes
French Cuff
Henna [might hold off & pick up sump. olive later on if they are close enough]
& maybe strawberry blonde & red devil l/g
I just noticed I’m getting all 3 redhead e/s. I’m really limiting myself w/ this collection, the latest HK promo images are…..Yay!! speechless….

Thank you for the swatches! I’ll be getting for sure:
Strawberry Blonde
Femme Fi
maybe: Flip, 100 Strokes and Quick Tease… but I still have to wait one whole month for this launch (greetings from Poland ;)) so this list may change once I see some FOTDs starring these products.

I haven’t really settled on what exactly I’m going to pick up, but it will be some of the following:

Brunette MSF
Live & Dye
Strawberry Blonde
Soft Wave
Red Devil
All’s Fair
What A Do

Knight e/s
Henna e/s
Deep Shade e/s
Femme Fi e/s [possibly]

Red Devil l/g
Strawberry Blonde l/g
Soft Wave l/g

All’s Fair

I’m so excited for this collection!

Probably nothing, unless it’s still around at the beginning of February. I told myself I wouldn’t spend any money till then…

Probably skipping, because (a) it annoys me that they changed the release date to not coincide with the sale, and (b) not that much interests me. I find the brunette stuff to be boring, and not really geared toward my skintone. I thought I might pick up Henna, but I saw a comparison swatch to Sumptuous Olive, and it’s too close.

If money were no object, I would get the following:

Blonde MSF
B-Babe l/s
Peroxide l/g
Pincurl e/s
#226 Brush

With my husband out of work though, I doubt I will be able to get anything right away. Maybe not even at all…

I’m a brunette, but mostly interested in the blonde and redhead stuff. Definitely the MSFs, and some l/s and l/g (Chignon, All’s fair, B-babe, Quicktease, Peroxide, Strawberry blonde, Live and dye), but I need to see them in person first. Not interested in the e/s or the other stuff.

I am skipping the eyeshadows since none of them seem to excite me that much AND I have colors I can use that are just like them. I am picking up lipcolors and MSF’s though. My list is: B-Babe, Strawberry Blonde, Live & Dye, Peroxide, and Redhead and Blonde MSF. Although this could become a little less once I see it in person.

almost everything for Redhead, LOL…i’m just so excited by the idea! hope when I actually shop that I’m more selective…

Umm, pretty much everything –

all 3 msf’s
3 new brushes
Henna, Flip, Pincurl & French cuff shadows
all the lipglasses
and all the lipsticks save B-Babe, which looks too frosty for me

I hope to narrow the list down when I see everything in person.

I’ve narrowed it down as well as I could:

Red Devil lipglass
Henna eyeshadow
100 Strokes eyeshadow
the redhead MSF
226 brush

I may be tempted by the 214 and the lipsticks once I actually see them, but I hope not.

I’m getting the whole Brunette collection,because i am a brunette:) and also cause i love the collection.

I saw everything in the LA pro store…
Henna is an EXACT dupe for sumptous olive – so don’t worry if you miss out.
The darkest shadows in each collection – BBR are all chalky dusty and gross.
I don’t care for mac lip glosses.

MSF’s are pretty – Lipsticks are ok.

I didn’t buy anything – I was surprised – I thought I was going to buy 200 bucks worth of stuff. This collection is so over hyped. But is theoretically much more my style – than say Hello Kitty. Oh well, I saved some $$

Definitely Femme-Fi, and one of the MSF’s. I just can’t decide between Brunette and Redhead. Maybe the 165 brush, but I’ll have to see it in person 🙂

I have kind of an odd question, I’m sort of a MAC makeup newbie. I am thinking of getting the Redhead MSF, but I don’t exactly understand what it’s used for. Is it a blush/highlighter? I’ve never used such a thing, and I see on the website there’s other MSF that’s for all over the face, so I don’t quite understand what to use it for.

They can be a blush OR highlighter! Depending on your skin tone and how pigmented the MSF is, you can use it as either or both 🙂

Many people do highlight their cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose, and chin. 🙂

I’m going to use B2M for three of the following four: Strawberry Blonde l/g, Quick Tease l/g, Red Devil l/g and Femme-Fi e/s.

I’m also debating how long I can go without groceries to justify getting the brushes!

Definitely the redhead MSF, blowdry l/s, and french cuff e/s … still undecided about flip since I may have a similar color

Blonde MSF
100 Strokes

Maybe Pin-Curl or Femme-Fi. I really liked it in the neo-sci fi collection but never bought it. I’m holding out on Knight I’m finally gonna get Deep Truth instead it looks pretty similar but Deep Truth looks prettier.

Chignon l/s
Red Devil l/g
Quick Tease l/g
Strawberry Blonde l/g
Femme fi e/s
Flip e/s
100 Strokes e/s
French Cuff e/s
Redhead MSF
165 brush
226 brush

I was planning to get Henna, but I’ve seen it swatched side by side with Sumptuous Olive and they’re almost EXACTLY alike.

Red Devil is really catching my eye. I also want to check out the redhead MSF. Even though you gave swatches, I really have to check the products myself before I can decide! I don’t really care for dark shadows, but I will check all of the light and medium tone ones!

All 3 brushes, all 3 MSFs, Henna e/s, Flip e/s, 100 Strokes e/s, Pincurl e/s, Blowdry l/s, *maybe* B-babe and Marquis d’ l/s depending on how they look on me, *maybe* Red Devil l/g.. I just never can use up a l/g before it goes bad.
This could change drastically when I swatch them all in person though. But the brushes and MSFs are a definite 🙂

Most all of the Brunette Collection – I’m passing on the MSF, the brow stuff, and the eyeliner, and possibly Deep Shade. And probably a few things from Redhead – Marquis D’ and Flip, and Teddy.
