Which Way Did You Vote for MAC By Request?

Published in: MAC Makeup

The riddle of time travel remains a nut science has yet to crack, but even though we can’t alter the past (yet), we can shape the future!


With the new MAC By Request collection, MAC is giving 18 of their former bestselling Eye Shadows, Lipsticks and Lipglasses a second chance at stardom, and it’s by people’s choice on Facebook.

The three top vote getters in each of the three categories will go on sale again in the limited edition release beginning this August in North America (online only) and in internationally sometime this fall.

Missing your favorite MAC colors from days of yore, like the kinder, gentler days of The Jersey Shore’s first season (when Sammi and the Situation were, like, a thing)? Act now, because MAC is taking requests for comeback colors. Now through March 30, cast your vote on Facebook for the colors you’d like to make an encore appearance in MAC By Request. The top nine fan favorite shades will go on sale again beginning this August, exclusively online.

I was able to track down 13 of the 18 eligible colors… Have you made your decision yet? Which of these former stars (three each per category) deserves a comeback? The shades not shown here are Candy Yum Yum and Moxie among the Lipsticks, Icescape among the Lipglasses, and Moth Brown and Solar White for the Eye Shadows.

I cast my votes for… 🙂

  • Lipsticks: 3N, Eden Rocks and Rocker
  • Lipglasses: Cult of Cherry, Flash of Flesh and Bait
  • Eye Shadows: Cool Heat, Guacamole and Heavenly Bliss

  2. YES, I voted! 🙂 I’m mainly pumped up about seeing Candy Yum Yum potentially being re-released. Unfortunately, I missed out on it the first time around, and it just looks like such a wild, fun, and unique shade, so I need it.

    Hope you’re having a wonderful Friday, Karen! 🙂

    I think I need Guacamole! I’ll be praying for this one and Moth Brown to win. I’m just OK with the lipglasses, but it’d be great to have 3N too!

  6. Ricky Blue says:

    I’ve definitely become smitten with Cool Heat and Moth Brown and Eden and Cult of Cherry could easily work their way into my heart.

  7. Summer says:

    Today I voted for Candy Yum Yum, Flash of Flesh, and Jete! Ultimately, I hope all of these guys win:

    Lipsticks: CYY, 3N, and either Rocker or Eden Rocks (can’t decide which one I wanna rock out to! ;D)
    Lipglasses: Flash of Flesh, Cult of Cherry, and Bait
    Eyeshadows: This is the hardest one! I would love to see Jete, Guacamole, Moth Brown, AND Heavenly Bliss back. Grrr!

    MAC needs to do this again with more colors and some blushes and MSFs!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Summer,

      Yeah, that would be awesome! There are quite a few MSF’s that I’d love to see come back to the counter.

      Hope you’re having a lovely Friday!

  8. Oh, thank goodness, swatches! *showers you with hugs*

    Off to go vote now! 😉
