    Posted this in the other thread, but figured I'd put it here as well, since I have some experience with a lot of the colours...


    Thanks for all the info! This collection actually makes me feel like an old-timer, because I already have so much of it. A large portion is actually taken from the SPring Colour Forecast 2010 collection. I'm surprised to see so much of it in one place, but some of those shades are fantastic all around ones and I think it's a good opportunity for those who missed them the first time (or have run out!) to grab some solid Mac shades.



    EYESHADOW QUADS:
    SHOWSTOPPER - Oh My Darling, Jest, Mineralism, Showstopper
    Showstopper is the only shade I have from this quad, but I would almost refuse to buy it on general principle because it's been promoted so many times.

    DEVILISHLY DARK - Manila Paper, Goldmine, Honey Lust, Devilishly Dark
    I already have Manila Paper, which is one of my favourite highlighters ever, and Goldmine. Tempted to get this just to back up MP, but it's awfully similar to stuff I have...

    MELT MY HEART - Forgery, Melt My Heart, Heather Belles, Silver Ring
    I have three of the four shades and Forgery is one that never much appealed to me. Why do they keep re-promoted Heather Belles? This is the 3rd or 4th time for that one, too.

    HOLD MY GAZE - White Rabbit, Dame’s Desire, Deep Secret, Hold My Gaze
    Again, I have everything except Deep Secret, but I can say that the other shades will make this one worth the price. All three are solid.

    IDOL EYES - Idol Eyes, Lustre Leaf, Russian Blue, Birds & Berries
    I used to have Idol Eyes but got frustrated by its fallout. Too bad, because it's a fascinating colour. I have Russian Blue and Birds & Berries. RB swatches terribly but looks decent on. B&B is excellent.

    PINK FREEZE - Pink Freeze, Bruised Plum, Deception, Magic Moor
    I have Bruised Plum and Magic Moor. Not sure I need to back up either of them enough to sell me on the quad, but this would be the one I'd be most likely to buy.

    BRUSHES: 224, 213
    I keep hearing awesome things about the 224. Anyone care to share their experiences?

    LIPSTICK: Fun Fun, Hue, Overjoyed, Cheers All Around, Fresh Salmon, Lovelorn, Laugh A Lot, Heartless
    I have Fresh Salmon, Laugh A Lot and Heartless. Heartless is a great standard red. There are a lot of reds like it, but if you want a nice, bright shade that doesn't pull too warm or cool (slightly warm), it's a great choice. Fresh Salmon is a gorgeous salmon-pink with gold shimmer. I can't believe they haven't repromoted it before now. I was wearing it this week, actually! Laugh A Lot doesn't have a lot of punch, but it's a nice bit of rosy-plumminess on the lips. Very nice on cooler complexions, although it's sheer enough that it would probably work on warmer skin tones as well.
    I know a lot of people have been looking forward to a return of Fun Fun, so I suspect this one will sell out.

    LIPGLASS: Pretty Plush, Fullfilled, Bountiful, Big Baby, Ample Pink, Full For You
    I'm not a huge fan of Plushglasses, as I find them too sheer, but there are some nicer examples of them in here. Full For You is a particularly pretty light, sparkly pink.


    I feel like I've hauled already...

    So many quads!!!

    SHOWSTOPPER - Oh My Darling, Jest, Mineralism, Showstopper
    I already have Showstopper (in Smoking Eyes) and Jest so will probably skip. It sounds like a really nice neutral quad though!


    DEVILISHLY DARK - Manila Paper, Goldmine, Honey Lust, Devilishly Dark
    I have Manila Paper (WW Valiant quad), Goldmine, and possibly Honey Lust so this is another skip.

    MELT MY HEART - Forgery, Melt My Heart, Heather Belles, Silver Ring
    I only have Heather Belles (I agree - why do they keep repromoting this??) but I probably have dupes for the others and don't wear silver/grey a lot so this is not for me.

    HOLD MY GAZE - White Rabbit, Dame’s Desire, Deep Secret, Hold My Gaze
    I only have Hold My Gaze so will probably pick this one up!

    IDOL EYES - Idol Eyes, Lustre Leaf, Russian Blue, Birds & Berries
    Hmm...I have B&B and Russian Blue, and I've heard bad things about Idol Eyes, so another skip!

    PINK FREEZE - Pink Freeze, Bruised Plum, Deception, Magic Moor
    I have Bruised Plum, Magic Moor, and *possibly* Pink Freeze, so this is a skip. Yay for my wallet!

    LIPSTICK: Fun Fun, Hue, Overjoyed, Cheers All Around, Fresh Salmon, Lovelorn, Laugh A Lot, Heartless

    I have Fresh Salmon (plus BU), Laugh A Lot (plus BU) and Heartless. Not really fussed about any of the others but I might change my mind.

    I'm on a lipgloss no-buy so those are all a skip.

    Looking like a cheap haul for me!

    Yay! More collections to look forward to! Heartless will be mine!

    re: Fresh Salmon. I really love the colour, but the name really puts me off. I get this mental image of being smacked in the face with a wiggling, trashing salmon

    Such a great collection! My list Quads: Showstopper Devilishly Dark (have to think about it) Lipsticks: Fresh Salmon Heartless Laugh A Lot (probably skipping, already have that one) Never bought a quad before because there's always at least one shade I don't like, but Showstopper might be my first quad! I do hope this time Showstopper is better than the one in my Dashing Lassies palette, that one has no pigmentation whatsoever. I'm very curious about the release date!

    I was looking for a warm red, but not as warm-orange as Scarlet Ibis (I already have that one).. do you think Heartless may be the right one?
    I must look for eyeshadows swatches...

    Oh, the glosses are Plushglasses! I didn't realize. I probably won't get any then, they never seem to be pigmented. Plus my lips are full enough without them anyway. Fresh Salmon is a must for me, I thought it was so gorgeous when it first came out.

    I don't know what I want to get for once. The Plushglasses are automatically off my list. They burn my lips. I guess Heartless and Fresh Salmon since I see those two lipsticks mentioned in the threads a lot. I'm at loss for what else to get if anything. Not sure if I should get any quads or just make a palette with permanent shades.

    I'd be interested in Devilishly Dark and Idol Eyes; I have none of these shades. I don't need more lippies, but Fresh Salmon would probably find a home with me as well.

    Lord help me. This is so true, yet I want to buy more. I just can't help myself. Just today during lunch I saw the new Maybelline Vivids and that have this beautiful purple color called Brazen Berry. I tried so hard not to buy it, but I had a coupon for $1.00 off so I bought it. I have no willpower whatsoever. This is going to be a hard collection to skip, but I may have to. My kitty Shetara who is only 8 is very sick and may need surgery. That will take away my lipstick buying money for awhile. Not before the Strength collection thankfully.

    I love Fresh Salmon so much. It looks beautiful with wide-awake neutral eyes and a bright blush (like Bite Of An Apple) for a really fresh, pretty look! Definitely one of my favourite spring lipsticks. I might just have talked myself into another BU... Laugh a Lot is one of my HG MLBB shades. I ended up selling most of my backups just because there are so many other shades out there, but it's definitely worth picking up if you don't have it! What is the deal with Idol Eyes? It looks like an interesting shade but I've heard so many people just go "ZOMG THE FALLOUT!" that I've been put off.

    Thank you BuickMackane! I lost four kitties last year. Shetara was fine until a few weeks ago. I don't think my heart can handle anymore losses.
