Good call!

I am so excited for these pigments.  First piggies I have purchased since Fierce Felines. 

 

For sure I had to snag that in yo face silver lippy, Warp Speed.  Could not resist the color or the name.

 

Anyone else getting Approaching Storm?  Wondering if I should have gotten that one or Red Dwarf, but somehow I feel Red Dwarf is dupeable.  I also added the coral colored lippy from Glamglass (Tour de Fabolous or whatever they are calling it now) to my order...

 

What else are my Specktra peeps getting???

I almost got the coral colored lipglass from TdF... But went with Comfort & Joy instead for now.  I couldn't tell if the coral one looked close to ones like Strange Potion or not by the website swatch.  I'll keep my eyes open for swatches because I'm sure I'll grab more of these.  And some of the lip pencils too.

 

I did get RD even though it does seem dupable.  AS seems a little too brown for my liking.  I grabbed 2 of the piggies!  Aurora (which I'm most excited about) and Circa Plum!

 

I would love to see WS on you... and anyone else that picked it up.  I didn't get it, as I am just now starting to play it "un-safe" in the lipstick dept.  I'll need to see it on some people to really decide if I could pull it off.

 

Have fun with your goodies doll!!

The more I look at this one, the more I like it. She's very close to my colouring, from what I can tell and it's a lovely shade on her.

Temptalia now has swatches of all the lipstick colours

Ty 4 that swatch linkage rockin'

 

this just confirms I am going to love my order on these longwear lippies, I got AS and WS.  I am thinking of getting the other 2 later, if RD doesn't sell out.  I am not too worried, there is always a red lippy every other collection or so...it is a gorgeous color though.  I want a long wearing brickish red and that silver one is going to be unique! 

post #976 of 1579

Upon seeing T's new swatches, I decided to drop Red Dwarf from my list to pick up Seasoned Plum instead.

 

So, my final list:

 

Seasoned Plum
Narcissus
Aurora
Circa Plum
Azalea Blossom
Vintage Grape

More swatches, from maybe a nc50ish skintone. http://killerlipgloss.com/mac-daphne-guinness-collection-swatches/

post #980 of 1579

Currently all I care about are the blush ombres.  I'm sure if I allowed myself to look at the other products closer I'd want more.. but budgeting needs to be done!  Does anyone in the UK know an exact release date for this?  Will it be the 1st Thursday of January?

post #981 of 1579

when will this be up online?

Is anybody getting Hyperion, despite the not so good reviews so far?

post #985 of 1579

Played with these yesterday-I am for sure grabbing Hyperion nail polish!  I saw the less-than-stellar reviews but I had absolutely no problems with it last night!  It is such a beautiful color-not too blue, not to green, just a minty turquoise cream that looks striking yet dainty and very unique.  I am thinking of picking up an Endless Night nail lacquer as well-I am a sucker for nude nail colors and this one is a nude pink-brown with soft pink shimmer.

 

Cremesheen lip glasses are my all-time favorite formulas-I love how comfortable they feel on the lips.  Very hydrating and not at all sticky-so I will end up with three of these.  I got Japanese Spring already and I'm going to buy a Borealis and a Narcissus for sure.  Borealis and Japanese Spring are very sheer, just a note.  But I don't mind-I generally use my Cremesheens either when I'm not wearing other makeup and just want a little something on the lips, or I layer them over stickier glosses because I prefer the CS texture so much.  Narcissus is beautiful-it will be stunning over Up the Amp lipstick which is one of my all-time favorites.

 

I'm skipping the lipsticks for a few reasons: mainly, it takes an awful lot for me to buy lip products since I usually just apply those at work.  Also, I'm not the biggest fan of the Prolongwear Lip Cremes.  I find them too sticky and drying for my taste.  They certainly have their uses, especially if you need a lip color to last you for a long time.  Red Dwarf looks beautiful, a very vibrant berry kind of color...like a red-based rose.  I have Warp Speed which I think will look nice over a deeper lip pencil like Vino or Nightmoth.  Seasoned Plum reminds me a lot of Bust Out! from Surf Baby, and Approaching Storm is a lot more brown-based than the "deep rose" description entails-I think it will vary a lot from person to person depending on your skin's undertones.

 

The pigments are gorgeous!  I will definitely pick up Aurora, and most likely the other two.  The "pearlized pigments" in Nebula are really pretty-it looks like a smoky-eye version of Club eyeshadow because it's a deeper, duskier shade with softer reflect.  I also really love the Interior Life quad, personally.  I really like the color scheme in general.  I can't speak to the pigmentation issues other people seem to be having, though-so far I've only used mine to make face charts since we can't actually wear any of these products to work yet ;)  I will definitely let you guys know though-when swatching the shades, I have the same difficulty because the shades don't seem all that creamy, however there's a big difference between how formulas swatch and how they actually perform.  

 

So far this is one of my favorite collections of the year-although I generally love anything deep and rich and goth-inspired so I'm fairly biased ;)  All I need are some creepy contacts so I can do it up for the next few weeks.  Happy hauling everyone!!

I love the Cremesheen formula as well. Not sticky, but hydrating. Fabulous!

Oh gosh, this is hard. But I would probably go with AB. Though N is really gorgeous too.

post #990 of 1579

Thank you so much for the link rockin !!!

Seasoned Plum is so pretty....I have to get it!

 

Approaching Strom looks nice too but I am worried that it might be too brown for me.

 

Red Dwarf,Warp Speed and Seasoned Plum are definitely on my list.
