MAC's newest collection, Spring Forecast is scheduled to be released in North America on February 11th. I was lucky enough to be invited to a preview party at my local freestanding store on February 2. Here's the invite:


You can open it like kinda like a book and each page has one of the selected trend colours (pink, purple, coral and neutral/bronze). This will be my second time attending a preview party. I sure hope it's not as crowded as the Hello Kitty event.

I'm trying to build a wishlist for this collection as this is the first MAC collection that has actually grabbed my attention since Style Black. I think it's mostly coz it's a huge collection and also organized by colour category so there's something for everyone. You can find full collection description and swatches on Specktra. The swatches look positively drool worthy!

Luckily, I will be getting some cash from hubby for my b-day (which happens to be three days after the event). It's actually the first time I'll be using hubby's money to buy makeup; I feel kinda odd about it, lol! Based on the swatches I've seen, these are the products I'm considering:

- Perky and Straw Harvest e/s
- Purple Quad
- Neutral pigment set
- Bronzillla l/s
- Bubblegum or Victoria l/s (Victorian looks like a colour that usually clashes with my skintone though)
- Electric Fuchsia l/s

Have you guys seen the pictures from this new collection? What's on your wishlist (if any)? Who's also going to a preview party?

    Im considering one of the pigment stacks (will probably be the neutral one) and one of those funky looking blushes.

    Tooooootally going to the party, but I didn't get a paper invite :( Just the emailed one.

    I have NO idea what I want to buy. I know that purple quad is calling to me, but I dunno. I'll have to make a list, I guess!

    Kelly - thanks :) I totally forgot about the blushes!

    Fintia - yey! I might also get Springshine if it's not to similar to Eversun.

    Em - your swatches really did me in :D

    Pixie - the pigments look really good. I wasn't considering them but ever since seeing swatches I changed my mind.

    Shayla - the quad is calling me too. I think that's one of my definites!
