MAC 25% Discount Holiday Collection 2008

Does it freak anyone out that MAC is offering 25% Off a majority of it's Holiday Collection? It kinda scares me a bit that the economy is taking such a slugger that even cosmetics are becoming discounted.

Hey, nice time for hauling but scary none the less!

Get 25% Off MAC Holiday 2008...Start shopping now!

MAC Adoring Carmine Gift Sets are down to $26.88 USD from $34.50 and MAC Passions of Red Palettes are down to $28.50 USD from $38

The only thing that remains untouched are the MAC Red She Said Color Story and the MAC Passionately Red Lip Palettes.....

I find it interesting that MAC is discounting. In all my years collecting this is truly a first!

Well...get hauling!

Disturbing or Awesome?

Tell the Muse!

Hmmm can we see some of this love directed at the MAC Monogram Collection? The Muse won't protest too much!

I'm definitely on the disturbed side. MAC doesn't discount like this. The number of friends and family events that I have seen this year... yeah, it's a little scary.

yep, MAC never give disc too here!! I hope they soon follow hehehe...
my christmas prep is normal, Im taking a small part in a play at church XD it's exciting!
I've used the MJ mascara, well I didnt use much of mascara before so I really cant make much comparison...but it doesnt feel heavy on my eyes and it doesnt clump...i take it as a good start haha

whenever i go to the cosmetics company store, i always see mac's holiday sets from previous years. maybe they figure they'd at least try to make a little more $$$ off of them by doing a big push like this before they have to send them off to the outlets...? or maybe they're just taking people's financial realities into account??? shrug.

whatever, at least now i can sort of justify why i need to get one of the brush sets. ;-)

Very disturbing!
Makes me a little grumpy since I´ve not only paidfull price but the european full price for these, so that is more than double the current price. grrrr....

Wow!!!! It's a great news! but unfortunately MAC won't ship internationally, so i think i will just stare at the monitor and do nothing.

P.S. I do envy you about your great collection of makeup!

Hey there Muse :)

Do you know if this discount is also for the international stores? I live in The Netherlands and really love MAC, so it would be great if they had the discount here too! I'm in love with the face brushes (not really fond of the price tag!) but are they worth it do you think? Are they good enough to invest in? Love you site, thanks a bunch!

With the Passionately Red lip palettes, I can understand that why they wouldn't discount the items, what with the proceeds going to AIDS. Although I wonder why they wouldn't give a discount off of the Red She Said color story. I mean, they're part of the holiday collection, right?

I thought the same thing! I told my hubby the economy must be worse than we thought since now MAC is going on sale! Unheard of!

Ditto. It kinda makes me not only scared but a tad bit sad. It's quite outrageous how many ff events have taken place this year..including..biggest shocker ever...Bobbi Brown...whoa.

hi there Charlotte

Not yet that I know of hun but if I hear anything I'll give the good word!

I like the brushes honestly...some people don't like the minis but I think they are fabs! Some folk say they aren't as good as the regular size but I personally think they work just as well :)

Hope this helps!

Thanks for reading my blog :) hope we talk again soon Char!

hiya Anonymous!

I did forget about the passionately red lippies being charity goods. Duh. I wonder if the other lippie palettes are 25% off..didn't notice hmmm!

I agree, wish the color story was discounted too :( I guess they don't have enough product to do so!?

Ah Muse, you are the sweetest! Hugs and Kisses! Thanks for the kind offer, but I´m kind of in a MAC rehab phase now, I severely overdosed in the last year. :)
