I just phoned the MAC store where I am a regular and asked if they were already accepting pre-orders for the Strength collection. She said that they were and I went ahead and placed mine. The process was a little different than I have had in the past. They had me buy a MAC gift card for the purchase total and they apply that to the order rather than just leaving my credit card number as in the past. She said they were expecting the product in early December (say what?!) but that she wasn't sure when I would be able to pick it up. I told her I had heard it was after Christmas and she said that sounded about right!
Like I said, I'm glad to have it out of the way!
yeah so you don't have to worry about it selling out lol. I should pre order too, but I would like to see what the other lipsticks look like. It comes out right after christmas? I'll be broke lol.
