Back by Popular Demand: M·A·C By Request

M·A·C has long taunted me with limited edition product after limited edition product - they're pretty much experts in the art of inciting demand and also, hoarding, if we're being honest.  And just when I'd given up on a few of my favorites, they've announced M·A·C by Request, a Facebook-exclusive campaign that invites fans to vote for the return of their favorite products, starting on March 12.

18 popular lipsticks, lipglasses and eye shadows have been selected from past collections and the three shades with the most votes from each category will come back as an online exclusive, limited edition collection. Here are the shades that are in the running:
