MAC By Request Is Back!

Hey lovelies! It is that time again, MAC By Request is officially back! I just received the e-mail and couldn't wait to share. If you have never heard of MBR, it is essentially an epic MAC blast from the past of which they select a few long discontinued lipsticks, eye shadows and sometimes other products (last year lipglasses were included) to which the fans vote and the shades that win will be brought back for a second round! How awesome is that?

"You voted. We listened. MAC By Request is back for a second year! What's old is new again, and the most beloved shades from the 90's and 2000's have returned for an encore performance. MAC is bringing back highly-requested retro-classic, long-lost lipsticks and eye shadows. Starting on July 8th - vote on Facebook for your favorite shades and the six (3 lipsticks and 3 shadows) with most votes will return in Spring 2014. Exclusively online."

Now, MAC seems to have posted contradictory information as their official Facebook page states "M·A·C By Request is back! This time with rare shades from the 90s, the vanguard of M·A·C’s timelessly original colour. Vote for your favourites from 7/8/13 - 7/21/13. The top three Lipsticks and Eye Shadows will then be available to purchase this winter! Only one vote per product category, per person, per day"

As you can see, they have gone from saying Spring 2014 to Winter 2013. I have a feeling that the winter date is more accurate but, I will update this post once I receive confirmation.

Lipsticks (from left to right):

Glam - Vivid bright pinky-red (Matte) Viva Glam 1992
Flavour - Soft muted peachy-pink (Satin) Freedom Colour Additions 1994
Tomango - Bright red-orange (Matte) Pre-1990
Hoop - Mid-tone rosy pink (Matte) Le Groove Colour 1991
Rozz - Watermelon reddish-pink (Matte) Pre-1990
Pink Poodle - Vivid fuschia-pink (Frost) Valentine's Day Collection 2000

Eye Shadows (from left to right):

Butterscotch - Warm beige (Matte) Pre-1990
Ashbury - Taupe-grey (Matte) MAC Mod 1990
Fiction - Muted green w/ shimmer (Frost) Colour Abstractions Colour Additions 1997
Diesel - Cool grey (Frost) Freedom Colour Additions 1994
Chill - Soft white w/ shimmer (Satin) Le Groove Colour 1991

As far as lipsticks, I personally will be voting for Rozz, I have looked up swatches and it is absolutely GORGEOUS! And as you know, there is no such thing as having too many red lipsticks.

As for shadows, I will be voting for Ashbury. While it may not be the most unique color, it is the only shade out of the five that I would actually wear.

Let me know below, will YOU be voting? If so, which shades will you be voting for? Also, if you could pick, what other discontinued MAC shades and/or products would you like to see again?

Thank you to the MAC Facebook page for the product info

Much love xo
