    Hi Karen! I want Via Veneto, Rue d’Rouge and Internationalist. I will add in London Life and Naked Paris to make it to 5 items, but I would not get them IRL. Which is your favourite?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Miss QQ,

      My friends at my nearby MAC counter said that Internationalist was one of the hot sellers.

      As for my favorite, I think it’s Cockney!

  2. lexi says:

    Hey Miss K,
    I love Whirl – next to Cremestick liner – cream o’spice this is my favorite nude liner/primer for glosses. I have date night from the last winter collection but it had too much glitter in it. Unfortunately, MAC lipsticks/glosses make my lips freak out (allergic reaction) so I have to stick to my bare escentuals, nars, and chanel glosses…

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lexi,

      I’ll probably end up getting Whirl at some point. It seems like a great nude liner. Do you ever use Sublime Culture? I like that one, too.

  3. Shontay says:

    Hey Karen.
    I bought Cockney and London Life. Both of them are fantastic!
    Looking at swatches of these online before they were released, I thought I would buy costa chic, But it looked way too frosty when I swatched it at mac. I was tempted by the dazzleglass, but I really don’t like them. I had to return a couple before. I prefer chanel glossimers.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Shontay,

      I came home with Cockney and Costa Chic. Cocta Chic is very different from what I usually wear so we’ll see. πŸ™‚

      Dazzleglasses aren’t my faves, either. I feel like they’re so gritty and sheer.

  4. Karen K says:

    Ooh! Pretty! Have to have Milan Mode, London Life and possibly Cockney, Via Veneto and Rue d’ Rouge. I want Naked Paris just for the name! Love me some Paris anything!

  5. Vonvon says:

    I would choose….
    St. Germain and Costa Chic lipsticks,
    Via Veneto and Local Color dazzleglasses, and
    Magenta Lip Pencil.

  6. Kate & Zena says:


    I’d get theoretically:
    Milan Mode Lipstick
    Naked Paris Lipstick
    Patisserie Lipstick
    St. Germain Lipstick (I might be pale enough to pull it off…or maybe I’ll be too pale for it. It looks very chalky)
    Date Night Dazzleglass
    Euro Beat Dazzleglass
    Internationalist Dazzleglass
    Cherry Lip Pencil
    Subculture Lip Pencil

    I tried to pick ones that would suit my super pale skin.

  7. shivotra says:

    Hi Karen!
    Its been so long, how are you?

    Hmm I would not get anything from this collection, I’ll skip it.

    I am waiting for NARS’s lolita collection. The eye shadows are to die for. I can’t wait for you to do a review on it πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Shivotra,

      I know! What have you been up to?

      I’m doing okay… just chugging along as usual.

      Will let you know if I see anything interesting when I see NARS fall in person. πŸ˜‰

  8. Karen S says:

    i would totally get milian mode and Patisserie (cuz i dont have a nude that i like yet). But cockney, euro beat, and Internationalist would be in mines if i have the extra cash later lol.

    i saw in temptalia’s blog that costa chic looks kinda .. unsmooth? that was my #1 to get in the beginning because in the tube it looks awesome. Can you put a picture up of how it looks on you? i might have to add that to my list if it looks just as nice on.

  9. lesley says:

    I already got a few items from this collection:

    Milan Mode
    Local Colour

    I’ve finally found a red that I like to wear, I guess since it’s a Lustre finish πŸ™‚

  10. Rita says:

    Hi Karen! I’m in the process of getting Cockney, Costa Chic, Rue d’Rouge and Via Veneto. The 5th? Euro Beat perhaps.

  11. Tove says:

    Awe, still no nod to Sweden? For shame, MAC. Stockholm Style? No? πŸ˜‰

    I think Rue D’Rouge is gorgeous, though, along with Patisserie. Do want, to invoke the LOLcats!
    .-= Tove’s last blog post… =-.

  12. Shirleen says:

    I have fair skin, so I will choose St. Germain,Milan Mode, Euro Beat, Internationalist and Rue DÒ€ℒRouge Dazzleglass.
    .-= Shirleen’s last blog post… Use Home Microdermabrasion To Deal With Loss Of Radiance Skin =-.

  13. Kewal says:

    Oooh I’d bring home:

    1/ Costa Chic – coz i’m on a peach-high at the moment – LOL
    2/ Euro Beat Dazzleglass – ditto
    3/ Roman Holiday Dazzleglass – i’m a sucker for copper/bronze colours
    4/ Via Veneto – such a unique colour
    5/ Subculture Lipliner – just coz it’s one of the must-haves for nude lippie look

  14. Tali says:

    Im relieved to say I want nothing!!!!

  15. marmar says:

    Dude like no one could guess πŸ˜€

    01 Costa Chic
    02 Naked Paris
    03 Euro Beat
    04 Rue D’rouge
    05 Via Veneto

    LOVE LOVE that peachy orange hues are so, so in. Are these already out? DAMN YOU MAC. Bank account.. fading.. especially since I’m hoppin’ off to Boston this weekend on the T: the greatest MAC store on the East coast, eva is in Backbay. (Believe it or not- better imho than the Manhatten locations I’ve been to.) I promised my hubby I wouldn’t blow the vacay money on make up ><

  16. Rachel says:

    Ooh! On my virtual haul I’d buy: Costa Chic, Patisserie, Naked Lunch L/S; Local Color and Via Veneto L/G; and Whirl L/L. I like this collex.

  17. redhead says:

    Cockney, Costa Chic, St. Germain lipsticks. These are nice and I don’t yet own St. Germain so what the heck! πŸ˜€ Via Veneto and Rue d’Rouge dazzleglasses call to me πŸ˜€ Everything else can kiss my ass because it’s so BORING.. Already saw Christine’s lip swatches, and nothing is work getting – to me, anyway – but these I listed.

  18. bomi says:

    these are definately the ones I would take home…
    patisseire, milan mode, internatiolist, subculture and naked paris

    • Karen says:

      Hi Bomi,

      I might have to go back for Patisserie. πŸ™‚

      Oh, and Subculture is great! I’ve worn it for years. Have you ever tried it? It looks good with nude colors.

  19. Karen B says:

    London Life: love, love the berry. Would be perfect for my London trip πŸ™‚
    Euro Beat: unlike any gloss I own, sparkly, pretty
    Rue D’Rouge: I’ve been looking for a bright red gloss so this is definitly my thing
    Subculture liner: I need a nude liner… lol

    And finally as a bonus for me: Milan mode because it’s pretty πŸ™‚

    Ooh and I cut my hair!!

  20. gio says:

    To be honest, I don’t think I would get anything from this collection. But I’m tempted by London Life, must be the anglophile in me. And the color is very pretty.

  21. cloudburst says:

    I would get Milan Mode, Cockney, Patisserie, London Life & Via Veneto. In reality I got all those plus Naked Paris & Euro Beat. I also got Costa Chic but it looks like hell on me so it’s going back.

  22. Gina says:

    My 5 Would be:
    Costa Chica
    Local Colour
    Subculture Liner
    and Roman Holiday

  23. Ann says:

    1 Patisserie
    2 Milan Mode
    3 Local Color
    4 Internationalist
    5) Naked Paris

  24. Amy says:

    1. Naked Paris
    2. Patisserie
    3. Milan Mode
    4. Cockney
    5. Whirl
    *6. Subculture
    *7. London Life
    So hard to choose only 5! I really like the lustre finish. It is so easy to wear and comfortable on my lips. I am trying right now to decide which items I really want to buy…if only I could afford them all:-)

  25. Kitty says:

    This collection is very pretty, but I REALLY want to see how Style Black is going to turn out!

  26. Nicole15 says:

    Love the idea of a virtual haul – it’s so easy on my wallet πŸ™‚

    1. Cockney lipstick
    2. Rue d’Rouge dazzleglass
    3. Costa Chic lipstick
    4. Euro Beat dazzleglass
    5. London Life lipstick or Magenta lip pencil

    I have been really really looking forward to Cockney & Rue d’Rouge. Mostly because I feel like it’s a wearable red combo more suited for daytime. For me, red lips usually are worn only when i’m feeling super confident or have a special occassion. It’d be nice to have a combo I could wear daytime too. I always love peachy-corals so I am hoping Costa Chic is not too frosty peach like something grandma would wear, but paired with Euro Beat it might look amazing. London Life just seems like such a nice berry to wear on a summer day. And the Magenta lip pencil would be nice just cause I don’t own a color like it. Guess we’ll see what I really get when I head to MAC.

    Look forward to seeing the colors on you Karen!!!

  27. Jasmine says:

    Oh my god, I’m totally dying for some St. Germain and Costa Rica. St. Germain looks like one of those perfectly soft milky strawberry pink that I am crazy about. Who knows, it might be THE one! πŸ˜€

  28. *jen says:

    I have already hauled 5. πŸ™‚

    1. Roman Holiday – GORGEOUS.
    2. Internationalist
    3. Local Colour
    4. Via Veneto
    5. Via Veneto (yes, 2 of ’em)

    Will go back for a Roman Holiday backup, Cockney, Euro Beat, and Rue d’ Rouge.

    PS: Mad props to Date Night, but since a) it’s perm and b) I have 3… no need to haul it. πŸ˜›

  29. Courtney says:

    I love St. Germain! Not sure if it would look good on me or not, but I’d love to try it.

    I’d get…

    St. Germain
    Via Veneto
    Local Color

    Reds usually don’t look good on me, but if I was getting red, Cockney would be the one!

  30. reesa says:

    I picked up Cockney, London Life (fav), and Milan Mode. I have to say, I love all three of these. They are very wearable. I still want Euro Beat, Roman Holiday, and Local Color Dazzleglasses. I’m not a huge fan of the DG’s because there is too much “dazzle”, but I love the texture….still thinking about it. πŸ™‚

  31. Jocelyn says:

    I want Via Veneto, if only just because I’ve actually walked down that street in Rome!

    Naked Paris looks fantastic, and I can’t wait to swatch Internationalist. Great variety of colors.
