I'm excited for this collection. Great packaging and from reading the article, I'm expecting lots of brown girl friendly shades! Thanks MAC!

My thoughts exactly. Between this and the Fashion Sets/All About Orange, and maybe Temperature Rising...MAC is getting ALL of my mad money.

So glad a thread was started here. I suspect it will be less judgmental in this environment. Anyway, I know this is going to be a huge hit. I'm a sucker for packaging so I know I'm in. Hopefully, the products deliver. It's really interesting how they're spreading this collection out over the course of the year. Gives our wallets a chance to recoup and I also think it will make the products more accessible to a variety of people. We all get 4 opportunities to try and score something rather than missing out because you didn't wake up one random Tuesday morning at 4am.

I'm really looking forward to the quads, the compact and the blush duo. Someone at MAC adores Rihanna because I've never heard of such a large collection released in different seasons like this one; all for one person. It's sounds so special. Product names are going to be pretty cool as well. This may be my largest MAC haul ever.

iagree.gif I dont wanna say Im going to get everything from this collection but im DEF hoping I will like a majority of the items.  I already know I want a brush set.  I usually dont purchase multiples when it comes to makeup but I dont know with this collection I just might!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm looking forward to this collection.  It reminds me so much of when MAC did Diana Ross.  Can't wait...

Thank you for saying this!! I'm hoping it will be a judge free zone over here as well. I actually like the packaging because I don't have anything like it in my stash. I'm looking forward to my first quad and SH brush! And of course all the lipsticks... she wears amazing colors so I'm having high hopes.

I'm interested in seeing the actual products. I love the packaging, but if the products aren't great, I will definitely have to pass.

I glanced through some of the drama in the other thread on this collection. All I want to say is that what we do with our money is our business. We choose to support whoever and whatever we want and that's that. If you don't like Rihanna, her decisions, what she stands for and choose to boycott the collection, you have every right. If you're a fan and want to buy every piece, you have that right. I am definitely not a fan of Rihanna for many reasons, but I'm not so opposed to her that I would boycott this collection. Opinions will vary on if she should be judged, how she should be judged and what we should do with our money, but at the end of the day, it's a personal choice and there's no point in going back and forth forever.

oh , THIS is the thread that is excited about the collections lol! I am excited about this , I am going to try and get at least one item from each release, I especially like the fall packaging and the holiday stuff sounds good too! no breaks from mac this year damn!

I know it's easier on the wallet, but I really wish everything would come out together. I'm so damn impatient and I do love huge hauls.

Let talk SH brushes! The 187 is not my thing so I wonder if there will be more and if so which ones.

If there is a 168, I'm getting it. Or a 131... The angels will sing if that brush comes back in some way shape or form this year. I need a backup. Let me go over to the mac brush thread and praise it some more.

I'm impatient too but at least there's will be something new every season! I'm really excited I wish there was pics of it all! I already have the 187 brush but I really like this one too!

I'm weary of special brushes, so I'm going to stay away from them. The 187 in that photo looks off to me. I've seen Rihanna wear all kinds of colors with her makeup so I'm hoping that's what we get and maybe something new and interesting. There's bound to be a red lipstick, which I'm kinda over, but perhaps the texture or finish can separate it from the sea of Mac reds. More than anything, I'll probably end up with shadows and blushes.

I'm super excited for this collex.  B/c the packaging reminds me of Diana's I hoping we get wearable shades for woc and bp type products.  For some reason, I really thing it is going to be a throwback to what mac used to do.  I'm getting the SH brush as long as it isn't garbage. I'm excited the featured a WoC in a spread.like this.  There are a lot of brands I love that I get tired of seeing the same pale faces.  I would like more variety.

I wonder if one of the shadows will be blue. I've seen her wear some pretty blues on her eyes.
post #22 of 69
I've also seen her wear purple and I recall her wearing red eyeliner. I hope it's not too much in the natural/neutral category. I know some WOC are still stuck into thinking they only look good in those eye looks but if this Rihanna collection has some more adventurous shades maybe they'll be more likely to experiment. I think there could be some smokey shadows somewhere in there. I've been doing that more lately, so that would be interesting to me.

I just posted in the main thread and then saw this one. I want a a brown girl version of Forever Marilyn!

I hope so too. With the Diana Ross collection there was a smoky quad with a beautiful deep dark coral called dance mix and a very unique warm gold brown called flipside. Those were some of my favorite LE shadows by MAC. There was also a purpleish quad with vex that was pretty interesting, the purples were not deep and dark or safe and reminded me of what a 60's girl group would wear, sweet and pretty. Both quads seemed telling of the makeup during the eras Diana Ross was her most popular, 60's, 70's. hope this collection follows suit with what the person would wear. Sounds like it will, so far

Yes, that BP has got to be something amazing for us!

I'm excited about this collection as well.  I love the packaging and it is reminiscent of the Diana Ross packaging.  I really wish they would relaunch the Diana Ross collection.  Due to $ constraints I could only get a few products - 1 brush, 1 lipstick and one lipgloss (Sunny Boy) which is my favorite pink lipgloss ever.  But I would have loved to have bought a few more things.  It would be nice if this Rihanna collection had a nice highlighter or MSF for WOC even though I really don't need another.

 

I'm not a huge Rihanna fan but it has nothing to do with her personal life.  But I love her makeup looks and look forward to this collection.  She seems very fashionable and I think she makes more sense as a celebrity collection than some other celebrities Mac has featured IMO.  I had to stop reading the main Mac Collection thread because it was all about the celebrity herself and I just want to hear about the products.

 

So I'm looking forward to this collection but I'm not looking forward to the inevitable stalking.  You know this collection will sell like crazy.

I can't wait to see all the stuff in this collection. I'll bet there will be some very nice things. Rihanna's makeup always looks nice.

post #29 of 69

I don't really care for Rihanna personally but I think her makeup and what she decides to put out has nothing to do with her personal life.  However, this line looks ADORABLE and the packaging is absolutely precious. I'm a sucker for cute packaging or packaging that gives me nostalgia (which is why I went nuts over Archie's Girls), so this is right up my alley. I rarely pick up quads but I might pick up one of the ones from this line specifically.

post #30 of 69
I hope I like something from this collection because besides the signature, the packaging is killing it!

If any of the products can be used to recreate her sultry look in the pic that keeps floating around in the other thread, I'm in all the way.
