What Summer or Fall 2012 Makeup Collections Are You Most Excited About?

With MAC officially releasing Hey, Sailor on today (although it has been online for a while now) I was musing over what Summer Collections I’m most excited about.

Since Urban Decay hasn’t really introduced a Summer 2012 Collection outside of their new eyeshadow system (what did you think of their newly revamped shadow collection?) I was kinda sorta hopeful we might see something else from the brand as we head deeper into Summer.

Or are you just skipping Summer and heading right into Fall?

Which Summer 2012 Collections are you fancying at the moment?

Ready for Fall 2012?

Do share!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    For me, Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel Summer Collections are the ones that got me most excited this year. They made my eyeshadow ban void for the season : ) It’s strange really considering that I don’t usually buy products from the two brands.
    I haven’t looked into the fall collection that much (It’s still May!) so I can’t say much on that right now but I’m hoping for something interesting from NARS (which hasn’t caught my eye these last few collections).
    How about you, Muse?

      hey midori sorry VERY delayed reply…! I’m quite excited to see what UD does this year, I’m kinda hoping for some sort of naked collection…lipstick, gloss, new palette?

    Haven’t seen any fall colle yet, but they are always my favorite – guess I just like the autumnal colors best! Are there any online yet? 🙂

  • Cj

    Sadly I haven’t seen anything too exciting yet :/ I am looking forward to Mac repromoting the volcanic ash exfoliator, but other than that meh. I should be getting the stuff I ordered from hey sailor today tho 🙂

    MAC Hey, Sailor! was a favorite collection of mine so far this summer. I also loved the Miami Collection from Bobbi Brown and the new polish shades from Butter London. I am so disappointed that Urban Decay hasn’t really offered much that is new for the summer, I wait for their new stuff every season and NARS summer really disappointed me too.

    For fall – I am hoping for great collections from NARS, Urban Decay,and Chanel. I am also looking forward to MAC’s collaboration with Carine Roitfeld.

    UD’s new shadow system is a bit shady (pun intended). the shades are full price, so for the pallet and to fill it is $108. You can get both naked pallets or a naked pallet and the 15th anniv pallet for that amount and get A TON more color options.

    For my birthday my supervisor gave me the too faced summer eye pallet and i’m loving it! after i saw it here and with your FOD’s, it had to be mine!!! mwhahaha!!!

    i’d like to go and check out that pretty clairins pallet; it was so pretty but i need more makeup like a hole in the head.

    I’m looking forward to all the pretty pots in MAC’s Casual Colour Collection out June 7th.

    Yea, I’m kinda disappointed in Urban Decay due to their lack of a summer collection. The eye shadows seemed exciting until I learned that I already own some (some of the palettes already had the new formula) and the price for the build-your-own palette is too high.

    I think the Laura Mercier summer collection looks nice and I ordered one item yesterday. I also think the Mac collections coming out this summer look interesting. The YSL summer collection looks awesome, though, I doubt I’ll get any of the items. The Too Faced summer is also great. I don’t know if I’ll have any money left for fall collections!

    I’m excited for the various MAC collections (especially the ones releasing in July and Carine Rottfeld’s (I think I just butchered her name)), as well as NARS’ Andy Warhol collection. I only obsess over NARS, and I love seeing what MAC comes up with. I never know about other collections until I see swatches on makeup blogs.

    I can’t wait for Clinique Chubby Stick for Eyes in fall! I am a sucker for creme, liquid, and stick eye shadows (got uber dry lids). 😀

  • kiwikiwidragon

    I am looking forward to the Clarins collection. I was really hoping to see it by now

  • Quinctia

    I think the only LE summer items I got were that pink L’oreal Infallible eyeshadow and the really light iridescent Armani Eyes to Kill. I like them both (though I actually prefer the L’oreal formula to the Armani), but nothing really excited me in summer stuff. If next year’s chosen shade is something I like (orange is my least favorite color), I’d probably be down with a similar collection to this year’s Sephora one.

    UD released a summer nail polish set! Unfortunately, most of the shades aren’t my deal, so I passed on that. I’m not really into the new palette system, and I’ve never been a huge fan of eyeshadow singles from anybody, so I haven’t jumped on that.

    I’d love new shades of Stardust lip gloss so much–I love the gloss, but the only current color I was interested in is Andromeda, which I have already.

    So far I’ve been most excited for the Tarina Tarantino Emerald Pretty Palette I purchased. Not sure where that falls in releases. My other favorite was the highly anticipated Sugarpill Heart Breaker palette.

    I haven’t seen anything new that I have to have; or that I don’t already have dupes for. I did myself UD’s “Gilted” baked bronzer but that’s been out for awhile. I wear less in the summer anyway because it tends to melt off so I’ll save my $ for fall and a good waterproof mascara.
