    I uploaded the photo to save you guys the trouble of clicking to see the photo, but the blog owner made a mini-review of the lipstick too.

    I personally am not too bothered that the glasses are stickers.. atleast there's still that white snowflake/asterisk/sparkle design on the lavender packaging.. and as Mizuki stated above, you could just remove the stickers if you prefer the lavender alone.

    I am really gonna love this collection even if its just for the packaging! sooo looking forward to this!

    yeah, i'm a bit annoyed at the sticker thing. ah well, the shrink-wrap on my fafi lipsticks are still intact so maybe this won't be so bad. i'm liking gladiola, i'm hoping it's a bit more purple irl to differentiate it from hollywood nights & girl about town.

    Yea I'm really hoping it would be a lot different from Girl About Town since I just bought that one from the Manish Arora collection..

    I don't think this lipstick would be anything like Girl About Town or Hollywood Nights.

    RIGHT!?!?! Bitches be PISSED.

    I'm faintly hoping that maybe she got a pre-production tester and the final version will be stickerless, but I'm not exactly holding my breath.

    Grrrrrrrrrrrr...

    This isn't nearly as bad as Fafi though. at least it's only the glasses. And maybe that's the look they're going for because from the picture, the sticker looks pretty thick so maybe it's meant to bump up a little

    Wow. I'm actually not getting anything from this collection, but wow. Can't believe they did stickers...again. I'm thinking it has to be a cost of goods issue. Maybe the custom screenprinting is cost prohibitive, especially when you look at the number of colour stories MAC releases in a calendar year.

    I hope and pray that Hello Kitty is not stickered. I would be so effing annoyed.

    I only want the coral coloured l/s. That is if it's different from Vegas Volt!

    And who is this icon for 2009? C'mon Adina, tell us!

    It's funny, because with alllll the speculation at the start of this thread, NO ONE guessed the icon for 2009.

    Ok, maybe I'm alone, but my biggest problem with stickers being used on packaging is that I hate listening to people bitch about it for MONTHS following. Ugh.

    That's funny, because my biggest problem with stickers being used on packaging is that I hate listening to people bitch about people bitching about it for MONTHS following. Ugh.

    Actually, no, the thing I hate most about it is the FUCKING STICKERS! GRRRRRRR! But the bitching about the bitching would be a close runner-up.

    Thanks Randy.

    I'm not a fan of the stickers, but they don't bother me that much. Whatever, it's packaging - I've still got the product inside which is just fine.

    Re: MAC Cosmetics Dame Edna Discussion Part II

    Thats a hot lippy!

    I have a feeling one of the reasons Fafi had cheap printed plastic packaging on the make-up itself, is because of all the money they spent on the cardboard box packaging. It was white with multi coloured images all over it.

    If you look at the box Barbie loves Mac come in it was similar to M.A.C's usual packaging black with a pink Barbie head on it. It costs extra money for different colours etc when printing these things.

    If M.A.C had spent less money on T-shirts, Scarfs and Dolls when releasing Fafi, they may have been able to afford imprinted fafi goods.

    I would say M.A.C has a yearly budget and to put the Dame Edna collection out without 'stickers' instead with imprinted cosmetics would be pushing it.

    If you look at the box its coloured, has pictures on it and by the looks of it, is a shiny, metallic cardboard which would not have been cheap!

    This is why I think they have cut corners on the cosmetics and simply used 'stickers' instead on imprinted pictures.

    Which is really annoying BTW!

    That's just my 2 cents

    I can live with stickers...MACs LE packaging still knocks the socks off ANY other line regardless and my Fafi products still look hot

    Did the stickers stop ppl from buying Fafi? no, and I'm sure DE will not disappoint either
