Earlier this month, people were ecstatic to learn that MAC Cosmetics would be releasing a new cosmetics line inspired by cult hit The Rocky Horror Picture Show just in time for Halloween.

The collection includes lipsticks, lashes, glitter, eye shadow, and more. Unfortunately those who were waiting for the promised Sept. 29 launch of the line were disappointed to discover that it won’t be available until Sept. 30 instead.

It doesn’t seem like the end of the world, except some fans stayed up all night to order the Rocky Horror-themed collection from MAC’s website. Many took to Twitter to express their excitement about the release and then their growing frustration with its delay.

Customers reached out to MAC on Twitter and via their online live chat to try and find out when the Rocky Horror products would be available for purchase. They were told that due to a delay, it might not launch until later in the day on Monday or possibly on Tuesday.

Right now, any Rocky Horror products listed on the site still sadly say “coming soon.”

Whether or not this will have any impact on the line’s in-store release expected on Oct. 2 remains to be seen. Either way, it looks like diehard fans have to wait a little longer before they can channel their inner creature of the night.
