  1. Omgooshh!! I'd love to get my hands on Candy Yum Yum TOo! To be honest, I thought this was an April Fools post... but it's still March and way too early for that lol. Thanks for sharing!! x

  2. If Candy Yum Yum doesn't win I will be pressed as hell.

  3. I wish they had put Queen's Sin on the list. I've only read about it on forums and seen old swatches but it looks like the perfect red lipstick.

    This makes me happy some people can get stuff again that they missed or ran out of but I'm not familiar with a lot of these. The only downside I can see to this is whichever win that ebay scalpers will buy up the stock and some people will STILL miss out. Regardless, it's really awesome that MAC is doing this and it'd be even better if more companies did this!

  4. 2N Lipglass! I never had it but I saw it on tons of makeup blogs for the past two years... so jealous of the people who have it

  5. well, I'm disappointed there are no cheek products :( Also, no pigments....was hoping for a Subtle and Coco Beach reappearance.

    Happy about getting a backup of my beloved 3N though

  6. I love the idea of this collection as there are plenty of old favorites I'd kill to be able to get my hands on again, but good lord am I underwhelmed by these choices. MAC bring back Pearl Sunshine from the old Barbie collection!

  7. I'd love to get my hands on Rocker, Candy Yum Yum, Cult of Cherry, and Moth Brown! I dig this idea! Wish they'd offered Queen's Sin, though..

  8. I'd love to see Ever Hip again! Mine broke and it made me sooo sad :(( This is a great idea and a great marketing/consumer engagement strategy on MAC's part! it can only be a win-win!

  9. I too wish they'd bring back Queen's Sin lipstick. But I hope I'll be able to snag Cult of Cherry lipglass, at least.

  10. I'm gonna be making my case for Rocker and Moth Brown. :)

  11. My favorite MAC product of all time (and possibly my favorite beauty product of all time) was the Pearl Blossom beauty powder from the 2007 Barbie collection. I desperately wish they would re-release it.

  12. I am surprised they didn't include Parrot on the list of eyeshadows. Seems like a lot of people want that one.

  13. Ohhhh i wish they had put french grey eyeshadow! And black karat eye kohl... Im still hoarding a tiny sliver of the kohl and ive never had the pleasure of owning french grey :(
