What's today's forecast?

In San Francisco, it's about 59F out and cloudy.
Typical San Francisco...

At MAC counters and MAC stores, it's about 100 degrees! It's on fye-yahhhhh! Why?!! Well, because the long anticipated Spring Colour Forecast Collection released TODAY. Yup, TODAY.

I was able to go to the unveiling party at the MAC PRO store in San Francisco on February 2nd where I picked up 4 items out of the 40+ pieces in this collection (hot dayummm!). My goal was to stay below $100 and I was shy about $5 from hitting a benjamin after tax. GO ME!

What my grubby hands got a hold of:
- Blush Ombre in Vintage Grape
- Crushed Metal Pigments Stacked 1!
- Very Violet eyeshadow
- Hot Hot Hot eyeshadow

What I'm returning:
- Crushed Metal Pigments Stacked 1!
Why: They're TOO chunky. It's like a mix of Solar Bits and chunky pigments (i.e. Kitschmas) gone wrong.

What I'm planning on getting today:
- Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach
- Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom
- Straw Harvest eyeshadow (MAYBE, leaning more on NO) only because I have Evening Aura eyeshadow [Image Source: flickr.com] from the Neo Sci-Fi collection back in 2007 and it's pretty much the same. Could it be a repromote with a new name and no one realized? Hmm!! Plausible.

SFMACandcheese's recommendations:
If you could only get 1 blush, 1 lipstick, 1 lipglass and 1 eyeshadow from this collection, here is my list of "must-gets."
- Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom
- Lipstick in Victorian
- Lipglass in Lavendar Wind
- Eyeshadow in Hot Hot Hot

So what's on your "I HAVE TO GET IT!!" list?
