  • I can’t wait to go and test these out. Indian Wood and Groundwork both look interesting….

  • I’m looking forward the trying Indianwood and Delft.

    Vermeer is one of my favourite painters, and Delft being his hometown, I hope this color resembles the beautiful blue he used in his paintings.

  • I love Paints (they really do stick, even in the humid environment I live in!); can’t wait to try this new formula. I can’t tell if I love MAC so much because of their products or their AD’s!

  • The green in the picture looks great, I assume it’s Greenstroke. I like Delft and Artifact. I am not sure Artifact looks that good on me, but I still like it.

  • great minds think alike! I just blogged about these myself! I got Delft during Novel Twist’s release and I’m not sure I entirely like these pots! I do want to see the colors in person out of curiosity if any will appeal to me ;)

  • Finally a collection worth investing in!! I was so psyched that these finally came out. I think I’ll be heading over to my nearest MAC counter and picking up Rubenesque (and a few other items from the 3D collection) this weekend. I’m sure the hubby will be thrilled. lol :)

  • I’ve got Indianwood and Painterly already… They definitely apply better with a synthetic brush such as MAC’s 242.

  • I have always wanted a Red liner…and looking at Artifact, I think I’m getting it, it is absolutely gorgeous!!!!! I love it!! And Steelpoint sounds gorgeous, Ive always wanted a black-silver eyeliner!!!
