Overall I was pleased with my purchases, with the exception of 2 things. I could've totally passed on Altered Beige and the Temperature Rising Quad. Altered Beige was a bit too sheer for my liking, and the eyeshadows in the Temperature Rising Quad were not as great of quality as the usual Mac eyeshadows. They swatched super sheer and patchy.

Now the Bare My Soul quad is a must have!! I haven't purchased a Mac quad this lovely in a long time! I don't usually back up quads, but I may have to do so in this case. All of the shades were unique and very pigmented.

Feel My Pulse is another must have in my opinion. Mac has released many similar shades in the pass, so if you missed out I'd definitely say grab it. But even though I own many purple lipsticks, this one seemed to be right up my alley. I'm a cremesheen/amplified/lustre sort of girl. I tend to stray away from mattes and satins. I like them at times, but I often end up pairing a gloss on top which alters the color in most cases. Feel My Pulse gives me that sheen and pigmentation all in one. None of my other purple Mac lipsticks does that. I'm a purple lover as well, so either way it was coming home with me. To see Feel My Pulse possible dupes and comparisons click HERE

Lastly, Golden Elixir Strobe liquid. Looove that stuff! I usually use Mac Lustre drops mixed into my tinted moisturizer or foundation during the warmer weather, and this strobe liquid gives that same effect. Gives off a glowy sort of appearance that looks amazing!! I'm new to Strobe liquids but I'm so glad I finally gave it a try. This is another product I definitely plan on backing up

All of the must haves that I mentioned above were the first items sold out when the collection hit online. I'd totally check them out when it launches in stores May 23rd before you regret it :)

Have you purchased anything from the Temperature Rising Collection? Any favorites?

It's amazing at the difference b/w the two quad swatches. BMS is far superior. I ordered yesterday and it should be arriving tomorrow. Could you please post a look with the Strobe Liquid? I'd like to see how to use that so I can think about it or the Lustre Drops from Rihanna.
