    What RARE MAC Items Do You Own?

    Just wondered what hidden gems you guys have. the term rare is relative here as some people have been collecting and using much longer than others, so share it with us anyway.
    What things do you have that rarely come up for sale on ebay or swap?

    (this is partly inspired by turbokittys revelation of her 4 Pleasureflush MSFs


    These are mine, my absolute pride and joy:

    4 Mac eyeshadow palettes from the 04 collection the ones with the sworvski crystals

    an 03 7 Eyeshadow Holiday pallete in Bronze

    De Menthe Eye shadow x2
    Full Sized Marooon Pigment x2
    isabella blow lipstick x3

    your turn!

    I can do better than 4 Pleasureflushes

    I have lots of other rare stuff including some old e/s such as Haze, Clone, Black Gold, Judy Blue, all 9 Colour Theory shadows and all 4 Chroma Snake Eyes shadows. I have full sized jars of purple matte, green matte, auburn, mustard, brass, bronze and copper pigments, (although some of the jars are only half full). I have a couple of rare discontinued jars of glitter too. I have a few rare l/s including Heatherette, Blue Eve, Sexie, Holidazzle, Rockin' Rudi all three Playboy lipsticks and both Playboy glitter creams. I also have some MAC jewelled stick-on tattoos, a stack of long discontinued wild MAC false lashes, a couple of Isabella Blow t-shirts, Hot + Sour paint, Dabble paint, a few d/c brushes, all 4 Diana Ross brushes...

    As you say, rare is a relative term, so I've got a lot of stuff some people would class as rare but others wouldn't. I have a lot of the more recently discontinued "rare" stuff too, such as parrot, guacamole, lucky green, de menthe, moth brown, dainty cake l/s, strawberry blonde l/s, Blow l/s and the more recently d/c frost pigments in silver, gold, blue (original and RR), green and maroon, plus Coco Beach and All Girl. I've also got a few d/c brushes, a stack of palettes and quads, most of the glitter liners... etc etc

    The thing is, though, MAC being MAC, my list of d/c stuff is a lot longer than my list of permanent stuff!! I used to have a list of my entire collection but I lost it when my iPaq decided to die on me. I'd post it if I still had it.

    I should also note that I've been seriously collecting for more than 3 years now and when I was earning good money (before I had to give up work) I used to drop a fair bit on MAC. I have a big collection but I've certainly paid enough for it!

    I don't really have too much rare stuff because alot of HTF stuff is just colors I don't like or were close to other things I had etc, so I didn't bother with it in the first place, but I did collect some things I thought were cool:
    Sexie & Sexier lipstick and gloss
    Parrot, although it's pretty used because I loved it when I first got it and also that was around the time I learned to depot
    Playboy Bunny lipstick and shimmer cream
    All Girl Pig. & Coco pig.
    I still have a little of the original Coco Beach left I got in a sample
    Who's That Lady lip gelee
    Temperly Palette
    Other palettes that are harder to find now like Snowgirl Lips palette and a Nordies exclusive from like 4 years ago but I don't remeber the name
    Different D/C colors like Goldbit, Elite, Lucky Green, etc.
    My beloved Flamboyance lippie although not alot of people remember it (it was from Snowgirl), I have seen it sell on ebay for $40-50 bucks because of crazy people like me
    Older MSF's like Gold Deposit and Stereo Rose
    Y & Kei stuff, although newer still I think they were still pretty HTF

    Metal Rock
    Gold Deposit
    So Ceylon
    and at least one of the rest of the MSFs

    2001 Holiday Face and Eye Palettes

    2003 Holiday Palettes Face 8 and Pink Eyes

    I am somewhat obsessive complusive about palettes and quads. I think I have a problem!

    oh and also Moth Brown, Metamorph, Pollen, Goldbit, etc. of more recently DC'ed shadows

    theres probably more that I can't think of right now.

    The pink Diana Ross 150 brush. I spotted it at a CCO and grabbed it. At the counter, my uncle sneaked up behind me and whipped out his plastic. He did the same thing at Diesel. I love my uncle <3<3<3
