What limited edition collection would you love to see again?


What limited edition collection would you love to see again? Or a particular limited edition product?

Loved MAC’s Moon Bathe or Neo Sci Fi collections. Would love to see Tom Ford repromote his Pink Haze and Escapade cream eyeshadows, too!

Ditto this!! And TF Enchanted quad, Giorgio Armani sheer blush #10, MAC Moth Brown e/s, MAC Smoke & Diamonds e/s, MAC Liberty of London (whole collection), MAC Barbie, Chanel Notorious, Chanel Beige Lame e/s.

MAC Liberty of London and Heatherette. The latter because I didn’t get into makeup then and I’d love to see it in person!

I have all of that collection. I’ve been so careful with it and it’s so beautiful and different that I’d love it back too!

I love SO many of MAC’s collections, but I’d give up a limb to see Glitter & Ice back, as well as Venomous Villains! It would also be nice to have Heatherette available again in the UK. I wouldn’t mind seeing nearly all of them again to be honest!

I really liked the “A Tartan Tale” collection just for the overall concept- I thought it was the most romantic, with those photos and the sort of “story arc” uniting the collection but I have everything I would have wanted from that collection. I’d love to see Neo Sci Fi back because it’s one I missed. I’d like Venomous Villains so I could get Bite of an Apple blush. But for quality, I’d really like to see the Peacocky/MegaMetal eyeshadows brought back. And I just wish MAC would bring back Jardin Aires pigment!

I haven’t been “into” makeup for very long so I don’t know about very many collections. I don’t know if Dior’s Amber Diamond is still around and I remember looking at a lot of MAC lipstick swatches and thinking that the ones I liked were all long gone LEs eg Viva Glam Cyndi, Pillow Talk, Apres Chic, Ever Hip etc. But to think of one limited edition collection… even though I liked some stuff from MAC’s Surf Baby I’d still probably pick Chanel’s Knightsbridge collection.Lots of makeup end up pink on me so I decided to Embrace the Pink 🙂

Not a collection per say, but I would jump at the chance to get Dior Bonne Etoile, Chanel Notorious and Guerlain Cruel Gardenia. I am so sad that i didn’t buy them when i had the chance.

Old, old one, but MAC’s Femme Noir collection. Some of the items went on to become permanent, and were then discontinued, but some of the eye shadows, such as Femme Noir were as perfect as eye shadow gets…. Pure pigment and so blendable!

MAC’s Spring Colour Forecast and Venomous Villains. I wish to see Ever Hip Again as a permanent shade or a re-promote. (Please MAC ist’s HG lip colour for me!!! T-T)

I love to see them do another Hello Kitty collection. Not the same products but I was sooo smitten with the swag and packaging. 😉

Armani Acqua Collection (Those Eyes to Kill shades! Ugh, they should all just be permanent)
Chanel Byzance
Le Metier de Beaute Bodacious Bordeaux (Red my lips! those nail lacquers!)

I want to see MAC’s 2012 spring colour forecast again… Fresh Salmon was my HG lipstick. It got repromoted in Asia but not here and I cried. I actually cried.

MAC Peacocky, I bought only half the shadows and want them all. I also liked Neo Sci-fi, my HG blush X rocks is from that collection.

So many MAC collections come to mind! Hello Kitty, Barbie, Heatherette, Fafi, Venomous Villains and Diana Ross. I could go on and on but I’d probably faint if any of those came back lol

MAC’s Alexander McQueen. He was my favorite designer and the collection was released before I started collecting makeup… I still want every single piece.

Ooh, and the Fabulous Felines collection, because my Aristocat lipstick was stolen and I miss it dearly 🙁

I so agree! I was lucky enough and thankful to grab every piece and only barely touch it but it’s so beautiful and truly unique that I’d love it to come back for backups and no animal cruelty! AMAZING! 🙂

I kind of wnat the Poudre Signee de Chanel to come back…I never even got to swatch it the first time around, and it sounded (and looked!) so pretty…

I missed the wonder woman collection :< . I would love more comic collections like betty and veronica, i loved that one so much, I wish I had bought the compact when i had the chance..

Chanel’s Notorious comes to mind and, really, most of their LE Lip Shines. They always seem to release cool toned pinks with their LE collections but never make them permanent. 9_9 Then there’s the MAC Iris Apfen series. Gorgeous, bold lipsticks that really should have made their way into the permanent lineup. I also regret missing out on the two NARS 412BLKR collections, particularly the dove grey eyeshadow from the one release!

Not really a collection but an item in specific I’d love to have back is Estée Lauder’s Heatwave. I didn’t catch it when it came out and now I just want it so bad!!

MAC Venomous Villains. The greatest special packaging, ever. And I bought most of that collection and used it all up! Only the beauty powders remain. I’d really like a re promote on the lip colors.

I would love love love to see macs heatherette, hello kitty, Barbie and the one that came in the orange and yellow packaging. Oh yeah and the first extra dimension collection!!! I think every year or a few times a year they should repromote older collections!

Mac’s Digi-Dazzle collection. I love those dazzle lipsticks! Its nice they’ve occasionally released some in a few collections but none are the pretty pinks that I want! Naughty You was fab!

Urban Decay’s Vice II eyeshadow palette. LORAC’S Wild For TANtalizer eyeshadow palette. Chantecaille’s Tiger eyeshadow palette.

I would love to see MACs wonder woman collection, simply because the Marquis’d lipstick is my all time favorite. I’ve been waiting patiently for them to re-promote it!

I´d love to see MAC Hello Kitty to buy a powder because I loved the packaging; To the Beach to get more of everything – so far it´s been one of my favorite collections; MAC Me Over to buy 10 Offshoot LS, Liberty of London to get more of that amazing packaging and Neo Sci-Fi to get 15 Femme Fis :D! Oh, and the Mega Metal and Starflash eyeshadows! I’d also love to see Guerlain launching a fabulous collection of re-launches of their amazing powders like Wulong and Parure de Nuit – I would just faint!

All of the Disney princess collections! I wasn’t as into makeup when those came out so I had no idea they were around. I’d love to have the Jasmine one. She was my favorite princess when I was a young. My mom said I wanted to change my name to Jasmine when the movie came out. xD

I loved Bobbi Brown’s Desert Twilight collection from last fall (2012) I believe. The mauve toned browns were perfect for me! I haven’t found a dupe for the Bahama brown blush in the dual compact or the twilight eyeshadow in the lame eyeshadow palette (because too many of the shades were too pale), but that color was also perfect on me. Additionally, the honeyed tea lip/cheek gloss was a perfect match for me. Any suggestions for these rose toned and peach toned browns would be greatly apprectiated. I realize i have to check out Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette if rosy browns look good on me. But I have to find them in blush and lip shades too. I wish Bobbi Brown would have made the best of this collection permanent!

OH!! Years ago, Tom Ford did a summer “bronze goddess” type collection for Estee Lauder before he had his own make up line. The bronzer from that line was the perfect taupey brown for me. Didn’t turn orange or brown or red, just perfect for my very fair, pink toned, red headed complexion. Have never found a dupe for it. There also was a brown, slightly sheer and shimmery lipsitck from that collection. I had the presence of mind to buy all that my Bloomingdale’s had!!! I’ve never done that before, or again! I should have done it with the bronzer, and with Bobbi Brown’s Desert Twilight collection! But I”m not sorry I did because I still have at least one of those lipsticks still unopened!!! And I have never found a dupe for it either! By the time I realize I love something in a limited edition collection, its usually gone! That was the one time I recognized perfection!!!

I never got my hands on Chanel’s Accent blush from the fall. It was a beigey brown with a hint of mauve that I think would have been close to the Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight Bahama Brown blush. The SA at Nordstrom’s promised me she would call when she got it in but I never heard from them. Should have scoured the internet for it! Like I said, I don’t realize the value of some things until they are gone. That’s another color that is rather undupable, Chanel should have made it permanent, along with the mauvey brown one from last spring. When things sell out like that, I would think companies would want to make more to sell more. I’ll never understand the massive move towards limited edition colors that has happened in the past few years!

So, here’s my list: MAC Venomous Villains, Hello Kitty, Peacocky, Heatherette, To The Beach, Iris Apfel…I think that’s it, lol.

Not a collection per se, but I’d love to see Chanel’s Winter Nights quad again. Also, Stila’s Summer Shades eyeshadow trio from 2002, I think, and NARS Big City, Bright Lights palette.

Tarte’s True Blood collection! I really regret not getting that lip crayon and that eyeshadow palette looked so amazing! Really great packaging.
