I keep meaning to slog down to Orange to check out the CCO, but I kind of hate driving to Orange County from downtown L.A. :/

I shoulda asked if they actually had any stock but don't know much about that shade as I missed S/C MAC.

 

I believe they did have the fluidlines!  Maybe you ladies could call ahead to make sure they are still available before driving out?  It would definitely be worth the trip if they are! :)  I don't live very close to CCO, so I usually call ahead to ask if they've received new shipments before heading out.  A couple of times I've had someone willing to tell me some of the items they received... That makes it sooo much easier.  I am always so happy to find sweet CCO employees!

Midnight Snack is GORGEOUS! It looks like a soft steel blue/grey on me. i loooooove wearing it with every kind of bright lippie, especially rich pinks like Quick Sizzle or purples like Heroine or Evening Stroll. It's one of those complicated colors that really brings out the greys and golds in my eyes, instead of the green. I particularly love it with Industrial pearlglide on the lower lash line! So good for days when you don't feel like loading up on a lot of makeup, but still want something interesting.

 

Wholesome is my most used out of the 3 from Shop Cook, just because it's black, but Midnight Snack is my favorite color of the three!

I found the tendertones on my way home from Vegas yesterday!!!!!!!! So start checking your CCO, they should be hitting the shelves soon if they haven't already. I bought the last two Tread Gently and Hot N Saucy! I also backed up all of the fluidlines. pompom.gif

Well that's unexpected...Do they just have a different stock for CCO's? The tendertones sold so well!

I am going this weekend and hope they have TT.  I had to get tires and brakes last weekend before I attempted the one hour drive to my nearest CCO.

I am going to get a BU of Midnight Snack and any of the lippies from this collection I find.  I finally got the purple quad and it is my favorite amongst a dozen purple palettes/quads.  The pigmentation is aMAZing.

I think Hypnotizing will need a BU.  It is that gorgeous.

post #3189 of 3249

If anyone lives anywhere near Mebane, NC, the outlet right off of I-85 had 3 of the Tendertones and Dish It Up lipstick as of late last week. I was traveling through NC and stopped in. Had a ton of MAC products! Wish my CCO was like that one!

 

They had Hush, Hush and Tread Gently, but I can't remember the 3rd one. I think it was Purring, but not positive.

 

I think they had one or more of the quads too, but I didn't have time to peruse that section of stuff. Didn't see any of the blushes.

I planned on going tomorrow, but change my mind, now I'll be out there first thing in the AM.

post #3191 of 3249

My CCO had all three quads and tendertones.  I was rushed, and couldn't get anything for CP's. but I will let you guys know when I go back out.  I'm trying to see if my buddy will take me there tomorrow, but trying to convince to go out there for makeup will be futile. LOL

 

They also had

azaelia blossom,

vintage grape,

all 3 brush sets from last year,

both quads from daphne guiness,

flaunting it, peacocky, so vain, a few other peacocky lipglasses,

quite cute quad,

the dazzleglass spheres from last year holiday,

the three eyeshadow sets from holiday 2011

they also had the peach/nude lip bag set that just came out and the brush set that came with that.

half wild paint pot

3 ring yellow

going bananas

aqua

sun blonde

-these are the only shadow I remember.

strange potion

 

 

there was more, of course, but that's all I can remember.

thmbup.gif....wow,this is a great selection!!!

My CCO had most of that as well, plus the deep violet gloss from the VV collection, 2 of the Tender Tones, but none of the Shop MAC/Cook MAC quads.  They also had a lot of the blushes from To The Beach, most of the eyeshadows from VV, LOL and TTB.  They had Fluidlines from Shop/Cook which I got BU for.

lets switch, I want  the S/Cook fluid lines. :-D

post #3196 of 3249

The one regret I have is not getting any of the TenderTones.  I'd never tried them and missed out but luckily got everything else I wanted.  Ah well.  I don't know how much they were at retail but they're on eBay here in the UK for £20 or so - which I'm not paying, I can't justify it.

post #3197 of 3249

still look for Call me Bubbles quad if anyone finds it at a CCO :$

post #3198 of 3249

I wouldn't mind a backup for wholesome. I also have my eyes on the glamourdaze fluidlines. I still have 3 tendertones untouched (2x purring and 1x tread gently). Perhaps anybody wants to swap? (I have al 4 tendertones that I have used and will continue to use, the other three are BNIB.)

post #3199 of 3249

this blog list dupes for CMB quad (also the athma quad)  It might be worth checking out.

Oh I'm so jealous!  I want tendertones! :(

post #3202 of 3249

I haven't seen tendertones since I was at the CCO outside of Vegas! Luckily I was able to get BUs in September. 

 

One of the CCOs I go to still has the CMB quad in stock, but they're now out of the fluidlines. I MIGHT try and go back one more time, but I think I'm done with CCO shopping once Black Friday is here. I can't handle the crowds!

post #3203 of 3249

i only have one tendertone and it takes forever to use up.. lol

post #3204 of 3249

Yep I only have one tendertone from this collection in Purring and it lasts me a long long time. I only wished I had bought more tendertones from this collection. I love the fruity scent in this tendertone and it really helps to moisturize my lips that i wear it even when I'm not goin out too.

They are really helping my lips.  I got back ups of the Purring and the Hush Hush TT.  (I would have gotten BU of all of them if I could)

I wish the tendertones helped my lips more, but for me, they just don't dry my lips out. They don't seem to hydrate above and beyond.

 

My favorite balm over the years was Clarins, but the one I liked they don't make any more (it came in a handy tube and just moisturized; now it comes in a pot and is also for plumping, which I honestly don't really need). I then switched to Rodial Beauty Balm, which also came in a tube and could be used on the lips and also as a spot treatment for lines, but then they stopped making THAT one too. After that, I tried the new Rodial lip balm formula, but that comes in a pot, was a little too glossy for my liking and was for plumping more than moisturizing too. I just want a darn balm that's creamy, comes in a tube and is designed to be worn at night while you sleep for deep hydration, more than as a daytime balm to look glossy and pouty. I should probably try By Terry balm, which is supposed to be awesome, but damn it's very expensive.

 

If the mineralize balms are at least very moisturizing for a tinted product, they DO come in a tube, which I prefer, so maybe I'll have something worthwhile to wear during the day - being tinted, I'm not too sure I'd want to wear them while I sleep, though, and that's honestly when I prefer to nourish my lips. :/

post #3207 of 3249

Same here!!!

 

It is really difficult for me to find products that work for my skin/lips.But TTs (and also the Lip Conditioner) do wonders for my lips!

I wonder if this is similar to the Beauty Balm th_dunno.gif

If anyone is wanting rid of their tendertones (doubtful) let me know, please? Lol.

That's the one I meant - they stopped selling it at Space NK, which used to be the only place you could get it in the states....but now it looks like some Nordstroms carry certain Rodial products too and they have it! I guess I can go back to it now after all. It's good stuff (though I think I still liked the Clarins best, ah well).
