I asked to try on the They're Real mascara, and the MA insisted on putting it on me herself. She put on so much that I had clumps galore and really itchy eyes afterwards :(

I agree about Benefit. However, I do want to get Skinny Jeans - Pixiwoo and Makeup and Beauty Blog rave about it. I have swatched it and it is beautiful, but the price makes me baulk a bit, especially since I plan to use it as a base, so it will be covered up. The new Creaseless Creams shades are very pretty too, they are releasing some gorgeous nude shade palettes with tiny pots of them, which I've only seen available in the USA, called World's Most Sexiest Nudes, Glamorous Nudes and Easiest Nudes, which have two CC's and 4 eyeshadows.

If I want to look at something on the Benefit counter, I wait until the SA is serving someone else, then nip over and swatch, then pick up the item I want and go straight to the till with it LOL.

Did you know Woolworths sold beauty products?  I didn't until just now when I got an email about Valentines.  http://www.woolworths.co.uk/e/q/beauty.end?aff=email&affsrc=AWWVAL31&cm_mmc=Email-_-130204+Valentines-_-HTML-_-Valentines+Gifts+Beauty

It says it's in stock now! I would get it but I'm scared it might be too frosty :/

It isn't. When you try to add it to your basket it says it's out of stock.

Gracie: Hi Sharon! I was wondering if you could tell me when the Archie's Girls collection is due to be released in the UK? Thanks!

Sharon: Hi Gracie!

Sharon: I would be happy to help you out today. The Archie Collection will launch exclusively in Selfridges and Brown Thomas on the 7th February and at all other MAC stores and online on the 21st February.

Dragging the releases out this month aren't they! I'm petrified I'm going to miss my Strength lippys - need to phone the MAC store in Liverpool to reserve them on Thursday morning, to collect after work but I'm panicking that they will be sold out before I get to phone on my break!

Uhhhmmmm, I just chatted with MAC UK, spoke to a colleague of Sharon and I was told it will release online later this week... soapbox.gif

That's a bit rubbish - that seems to be the case for quite a few of the shades when I just tried to add to basket (purely for research reasons of course cutey.gif). 

 

anyone know anything about Aerin - most specifically their new Floral Illuminating pressed powder?  I'm sort of tempted, but trying not to spend too much money!

I CP-ed for most of my Archie's stuff, so all I need to do is swatch the quads! Could you try phoning the Liverpool MAC on Wednesday instead? They're really friendly there so they might hold them for you :)

post #6764 of 10730

I've seen that, it's so pretty, but £45.... It's only Estee Lauder (Aerin is part of the EL line I believe). I'll see if I can get the Chanel powder instead when I go to London on Sunday.

Oh goody, I can check the collection out in person this Sunday! :) I don't think I'll buy from Selfridges though, I'd rather get my points from HoF or Debenhams. Even Bentalls have a reward scheme...

Yep I'll probably nip in after work on Wednesday and ask nicely! I did ask last week but I think a manager was there and she said it couldn't be done if they weren't out on sale :(

Yes, thought it was pricey.  Lol, my youngest son (aged eleven) is going to Harrods on Saturday (and I'm not!).  His friend is going on a day trip to London with his mum, including sight-seeing in Harrods, and my son is the one friend that he's chosen to go with him.  I'm SO jealous!  Don't think I'd have much chance of asking him to look at the Chanel for me.

post #6768 of 10730

If they have the Chanel powder in Selfridges/Harrods, I'd be happy to pick one up for you if you like. I'll definitely get one for myself.

That's rubbish though at that price I'm not surprised they sold out!

I was thinking that Selfridges usually always get a feb release early like shop/cook last year and Wonder Woman the year before. I'll hopefully swatch the collection on thursday and force myself to wait for debenhams to get it in!

Yes please :)

post #6772 of 10730

i got my mac order this morning. I'd ordered the brow fluidline in deep dark brunette, the p/l paint pots in antique diamond and frozen violet and two of the strength lippies, firm form and strong woman. Strong woman is absolutely lovely a lot more red berry than i'd anticipated on my lips anyway, firm form doesn't seem to be showing much off the gold from a quick swatch on my hand, it almost looks a bit like a super dark purple rather than black. the two paint pots are OK a bit sheer and glittery but nice colours and you can layer them to make them a bit more intense.

I've finally got round to swatching the Glinda palette (I wanted to take pictures for the blog first, but never had the time) and it's so beautiful. Still not keen on the actual palette, I'm thinking about taking the plastic insert out, depotting the eyeshadows properly and using the palette with magnets instead. Not sure if it would work like that? The eyeshadows are really lovely, can't wait to use them.

I'm in two minds abou this - I got both the palettes, and they're taking up too much space, however I do love them.  I'm thinking of trying out that depotting method with the dental floss and putting them all into one Z palette.

No - actually I didn't know that Woolworths still sold anything - our Woolworths used to have a small selection of products available, but the selection was reduced all the time to make way for pick and mix and magazines.  I remember as a teenager getting my Miners nail varnishes there :)  - Black Ruby (a very very dark black/red) was my favourite - probably still would be!

Archie's collection is out on Selfridges website :) I got myself 2 lipsticks.. can't afford anything else at the minute :D

Thanks - I love those pearlmattes - and I also love the pearlglides - though I believe you can still get them cheaper as part of the standard line?  Not too sure about the pigments though, and I'll definitely not get the palettes - I've more than enough eyeshadows, and I've found MAC limited edition palettes very disappointing.  I think I'll wait until I can get it all postage free anyway - I won't be heartbroken to miss out on any of it to be honest!

post #6778 of 10730

I'm resigned to not getting anything from Archie's now i just can't afford it this month. If only i'd known it'd be coming out this early :( I might still pick up the Making Pretty brush set  if it's still available in a couple of weeks. i can't believe it's only £54 ( not that that's a bad thing!). I don't think my Gareth Pugh 182 was much less than that and the 136 has always been an expensive brush.

post #6779 of 10730

Strength is up on there too, but no lipsticks are showing. Sold out already? I'm still waiting for Debenhams/HoF or might go to the counter tomorrow morning to pick up Absolute Power plus the two new paint pots. I'll check out Archie's Girls at Selfridges on Sunday, I'm meeting a friend in London for lunch anyway. :)

The 10% off beauty offer on Debenhams ends today. What's the betting the new Mac collections won't be up until tomorrow? :(
