Lipsticks

post #2552 of 4486

My Cool Heat looks more teal than in Temptalia's and absolutely not as buttery as in T and Karen's swatches.

It's not really chalky, but somehow it's really densely packed in the pan. I could easily pick it up with my finger and the brush, but then most of it sticks to my finger/brush, rather than where I apply it.

I do really like the look of Solar White, Jete and HB look lovely, but hardly original.

All these shadows look so buttery, wish all of them would just get released.

 

Flesh of Flesh indeed looks really nice. Definitely more interesting than 2N :S

 

In lipsticks, I am (*edit) Team Moxie til the 30th, now that I know it is going to be a modern version of Matte

Mine too. Much more teal.

http://www.temptalia.com/mac-by-request-lipsticks-review-photos-swatches#more-33672 Lipsticks! I'm loving Rocker as well as Moxie. I think I'll be getting those two as long as they stay in the top three, and I already have CYY.

I actually quite like Cool Heat, I find it very pigmented and smooth.

I didn't even know what Mac was when it came out. :D

I actually quite like Eden Rocks, but I prefer Moxie and Rocker over it. Oh dear.

I like the look of these lipsticks from Temptalia's swatches. Now I know I must have Moxie, I was worried it would be too close to Quick Sizzle but it looks nothing like QS. Rocker is pretty I thought it would be darker more blood looking, but since my lips are so pigmented it would probably run a little darker on me anyway and I love the shimmer in it. CYY is still a must own. 3N did not look very special to me therefore it must be dethroned lol:)

I am going to alternate my votes between Jete and Solar White, Rocker and Shitaki, and FoF and CoC.  I would also rock votes for CYY, but there are plenty folks doing that alreday.  Also, I would really like to see Moth Brown brought back, but I am thinking there are plenty of other folks voting for it also.

post #2559 of 4486

Honestly I don't get the repromote of so many nudes and bright pinks. I don't get including Moxie and CYY at the same time especially after the recent releases of so many bright matte lippies that are similar/in the same family (IA, S3 C3). And I never understood the hype on CYY. I have it. It is OK but glitter doesn't fly out of the air and rainbows and unicorns don't come out every time someone wears it.

 

Having said that let me tell you that Rocker is my favorite MAC lipstick of all time. I have been wearing this for years and hoard it like crazy. It is one of those shades that can look great on everyone and I have worn it with every hair color and skin tones from alabaster to Jersey Shore tan. It is amazing on WOC as well (as evidenced by that lovely swatch shot someone posted). If I have my way they will bury me with this on my lips. 

 

I have only been voting for CoC in the gloss category. I have it and it is gorgeous. Having now seen the swatches on T's site I will now vote for FoF. I don't remember that one but it is so pretty.

 

I agree with those who say T's Cool Heat looks different. Mine is much more teal than the pictures of hers. BTW, MAC Guy, I am Team Jete for sure.

I hope it catches up.

I do understand the hype (as in "must-have-CYY"), though I doubt that those who have it (or intend to be first-time buyers) will wear it very often. It is a fun color on occasion, but there are plenty of other bright pinks (as you pointed out). When CYY came out, it was certainly more unique than today, where we have so many neon pinks from IA and Shop MAC.

 

But if the majority wants CYY, that's fine too. After all, MAC should produce the lippies where the make the most money. Not only by selling, but also by creating a general hype around the brand - and CYY is probably the right lippie for that purpose, especially if quantities are limited. Once you missed out on a hyped product, sooner or later you become a notorious stalker and order everything as soon as it is uploaded to the site so you don't miss out again - and in this process you spend much more than you normally would spend. I always admire clever marketing. :)

Me too. I hate to admit it but I am probably a marketer's dream. I can get sucked into things easily sometimes through a great pic, new delivery method, etc. I feel like I have gotten better about it. :-)

Also from looking at the Temptalia swatches, I think I'll start voting for the Moth Brown e/s I haven't even given the shadows a second look, but that one is pretty different looking. I also like Heavenly Bliss, but I probably wouldn't buy it, I have more gold/brown shadows than I know what to do with, it probably wouldn't get used, but I'll still send a few votes it's way:)
post #2566 of 4486

If Jete makes it then I will buy at least 3 for sure eyelove.gif We can do this!!!!

I think we all are, otherwise we wouldn't go crazy over LE collections. Still, I only buy what I really wear and what I will use up. If I'm in doubt, I usually skip and don't regret this decision. This approach makes me happy, both financially and space-wise. Nothing worse than collecting make up that doesn't get used.

More power to those who can vote multiple times. While it is not quite a "fair & square" approach, it make is certainly interesting until the last minute.

post #2569 of 4486

I don't remember FoF but its gorgeous!! It needs to be on the top 3!

Right now I want Moxie, Rocker and Cult of Cherry. I'm not fussed about eyeshadows anymore, I think I'd be ok with whatever gets through but Heavenly Bliss is definitely my fav!
