    I adored this collection. I still have the Smoking Eyes quad & Ablaze blush, but my Sparks Can Fly l/s & Bare Truth l/g are all used up & B2M’d.

    I just discovered MAC in 2007, i think right after this collection.
    Still searching for the Smoking Eyes quad sometimes on Ebay ;-)

    Loved this collection! And wish I had purchased more of it…!
    It was one of my favourite mac ad campaigns yet! (I think it’s a tie for me with the N collection)

  12. Kariey says:

    Did you buy the entire collection!? (:

  13. Gigi says:

    i agree enthusiastically! I’m the kind of gal who can’t remember where I went to dinner last Friday – but I’ve never forgotten this collection. It was brilliant. :)

    The Smoky Eyes quad is my favourite evar. It’s actually made up of Showstopper, which was re- released plenty of times, satin taupe, and a totally wonderful highlighter called Barely there that they never released again. The black with flecks of gold is nice but I use homeopathic quantitates of it anyway, but I’m hitting pan on the highlighter. If only they re-realeased it I’d be a happy woman.
    And the lipstick too. Brew is fantastic.
    What I liked so much about this collection is how well everything went togheter. I still use the quad, emote blush and brew lipstick and it looks so quietly glamorous.
