We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Thanks for the review, Christine. The Red Head MSF interests me. All the rest is extremely dupable. What is it about MSFs that I can’t pass them up?! I don’t use them enough to justify my collection!

Hi. Im a C40 in mac and I’ve had my eye on a hadful of pink lipsticks that i want to try out, Patisserie, Bombshell, Speed dial, Lovelorn and Sweetie. Could you pink the top 2 lipsticks that you think would look the best on me? Thank youu! I always appreciate your opinion.

The blushes don’t seem to that mineralized…?

Fresh honey sounds interesting.. need to see it in person.

Everything else is quite ‘meh’

I’m over MAC in general these days. Too many “collections” made up of rushed, sub-par products. They are really hurting their reputation.

thank u for replying to my message 😀 but i meant lik how long will the collection last for? bcuz my birthday is on january 29 and i wanna noe if its going to be out until then … aha i cnt buy it with my own money rite now so i decided to ask for some products on my birthday.. 😛

Christine do you have any thoughts about the 286? You kind of skipped over it in the video & I’m not finding anything else about it on your site. Any chance of a review or pics with it compared to similar sized brushes.Thanks so much!

Hey Christine,
Out of the blushes, which one is your favorite? And which do you think is the most wearable for skin that is warm and yellow-toned?
