I have however, added everything I want to my basket ready to check out (unless they sell out before Friday, fingers crossed they don't!). My list has changed and become more realistic since I first looked at the collection, specifically by crossing off the £29.50 Colour 4 eyeshadow quad. I knew those were colours I liked but really, I knew I could probably dupe them with colours I already had.
Obviously if you're a die-hard MAC fan, or a pro-makeup artist you'll still want the quad, but for me it'd be a waste of nearly £30 to buy almost exactly the same colours again.
It's very easy to get caught up in the new collections. I browse the Specktra forums a lot and seeing new updates about a forthcoming collection is exciting, but realistically I can't afford everything I want, and I can live without a new lipstick or eyeshadow!
Anyway, here's a look at the quad courtesy of Temptalia:

Right: MAC Shroom, Urban Decay Half Baked, MAC All That Glitters, MAC Woodwinked
The white could be whiter and the bronze shade could be bronze-er but I think it's pretty spot on. If you already have these colours in your collection I'd probably skip the quad, but if you don't and you like them it's a cheap way to get four gorgeous eyeshadows (they're £9 each in pan form, making it £39.50 for four shadows and a four pan palette).
Happy shopping to those of you who don't have to wait until Friday like me, I'm so jealous! Let me know what you've bought!
