MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion - Page 9

post #241 of 7630

Re: MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion (Hair was WN)

i want all the brunette eyeshadows (love femme-fi and have been debating a backup) and strawberry blond l/g sounds tempting.

i don't really know where i fit in because i have brown hair but light skin and eyes so i'm not really brunette or blond ... oh well.

the brunette shadows sound perfect for me, though!

That means you have an excuse to buy the blond and brunette products.

Re: MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion (Hair was WN)

I'm not a huge fan of MSFs (yet) but I think I may be picking up all three of these, they sound gorgeous!

I currently have almost black hair (natural colour), NW20 skin and blue eyes, so I think I may be able to get all three to work. I WILL find a way... lol.

correct me if i'm wrong, but aren't those with black hair technically considered brunettes?

Brunette is warmer than Black.

They are indeed striped like the BB shimmerbricks, but the stripes sorta have a soft gradation. they dont have a clear-cut end of one color and beginning of the next like shimmerbricks. all i can say is that the word "gradation" is a good way to describe it. they're not veined and swirled like in the previous collections.

Oh, I like it!

Re: MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion (Hair was WN)

If they're like the Bobbi Brown shimmerbricks then I'll give them a miss. I just don't like my bronze shimmerbrick at all. The only thing I do with it is use the lightest gold/white shade as a highlight colour for my browbone. I guess I'll have to see them before getting excited about them.

Awww too bad. I LOVE my BB Gold and Apricot Shimmerbrick. Maybe you got the wrong color for yourself. I highly recommened BB Shimmerbricks.

This collection sounds so good! There's so much I want I'll have to start saving up now!

Re: MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion (Hair was WN)

I had a dream i logged on and saw that there were 4 pages worth of a color story for this collection and i was like "oh my God.. .what am i going to do?" and i just sat at my laptop crying.

I really have a problem. I have dreams about these color collections WAY too much!

Oh my goodness, that made me laugh and cry at the same time!

I know, the colour collections from MAC are like a fever with no known cure.

Maybe you could use a colour that washes out? Just a shade or two darker than what you have at the moment?

I almost had a heart attack when I opened the colour story page and my eyes hit "Strawberry Blonde!" I can't be the only one who had a mini freakout thinking they were bringing that one back, only to realize it's a gloss! MAC needs to stop doubling up on product names! Haha!
I love the description of the colour, it sounds so great. So hoping it suits me

I always thought so too. But from the colour descriptions the brunette colours sound warm and I guess some black haired girls are more cool toned?

Re: MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion (Hair was WN)

Hmm, I'm not really feeling this collection now it's definitely not hair products. I'm an NC50 with dark brown hair. It all seems a little on the light side for me. Oh well, more money saved...
post #257 of 7630

Re: MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion (Hair was WN)

The colour descriptions are really pretty! I was hoping I would be able to pass on this collection, but based on the info we've got I don't think I'll be able to. I can't wait to see product photos!! Does anyone know if there'll be special packaging for these??? xx

So, I was reading in an esthetician text book today about hair colors and how certain color makeup works better based on hair colors.

For example the following lipstick shades are best with these hair colors:

Blond: Soft pink, lilac, pale orange, soft wine-red, clear red, soft earthtones

Brunette: beige, clear red, coral, true pink, rose-red, wine-red, plum, soft orange, strawberry-red

Red: Apricot, soft orange, soft rust, golden peach, soft pink, coral, clear red

Black: all colors; may be slightly deeper than for lighter hair.

So maybe since black hair can get away with all of these colors, they didn't even bother? My book only has this chart for lipcolors, not for skin products or eyes, so I dunno if it applies to all products, but there you go. This also explains the concept of makeup to coordinate with hair!

Sheew, so I thank the gods that are Loreal Feria that gave me the opportunity to be a boxed black haired goddess that can wear anything. Hehe J/k.

Well I am a little bummed that they don't have veining in them. That is one of the things I love about MSFs. But I am pretty excited to get these. They sound amazing. Now I need to see some pictures. Hopefully tinkerbelle will have some soon.

Re: MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion (Hair was WN)

I seriously need Henna eye shadow. What an awesome name for a colour and the description makes it sound beautiful too. I also really want all 3 of those MSF's so hopefully I can make them work >_<

Re: MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion (Hair was WN)

Re: MAC - Brunette Blonde Redhead Collection Discussion (Hair was WN)

For once my annoying reddish-blondish-brown hair color has come in handy! Sounds like an excuse to buy everything to me

This collection is SO awesome. It's huge and all of the products are so lovely.

I loooved the Mineralize Skinfinishes. I used the Redhead on myself, just because I prefer more peachiness on myself. The Blonde one is very pink and the Brunette is very brown. Very pretty though. I'll go more in depth soon. =P
