WMS and PP is much more wearable (regardless of season) than H, though I agree that H is definitely more a Fall color. Oh well, I'm sure it will be gone soon enough.

Reel Sexy

Pink Popcorn

 

My Nordies said they have a 2 purchase limit on all the items which I think is fair.


That's totally generous! When I did my pre-order of the lippies and some TC blushes, my Nordy's told me there's a 5 quantity purchase limit. I was like ....icon_eek.gif..... I'll just take two each of PP and RS, thanks! lol. I can't imagine owning 5 each of a LE lipstick! No wonder a bunch pop up on eBay!

Budding Love is much more lavender than Pink Popcorn. Pink Popcorn is pink with a smidgen of lavender. Budding Love is a lilac purple with a hint of pink. They're similar but not quite, they've got different color bases. I do love the look of Pink Popcorn because it has kind of a duo-chrome effect. I'm sure swatches will be posted in the upcoming days, but I will contribute some swatches this weekend when I get my goods, too :)

For anyone interested in a lip liner to pair with Reel Sexy - it looks like NYX Slim Lip Pencil in "Coral" might fit the bill! As of right now, I only see it available at Cherry Culture, but a trip to Ulta might be fruitful as well. 

 

Any other ideas for what kind of liner to wear with Reel Sexy?

Yes, it's definitely shimmery. I have not tried this color on yet lol only swatched on my hand, but when I saw the color I gasped at how pretty it is!

post #1419 of 2605

Damn. Should I grab it before It's gone off of Macys? I love my BL

Yaya! I haven't seen it in person, I just did a google image search for it and I was thinking, "WOW that looks super close!" Coral might be a teensy bit more orange, but I think it'll easily compliment Reel Sexy since it's peach-toned.

post #1422 of 2605

I cant! Already spent $159 :( ........who am I kidding I'll probably cave! lol I'm a sucker for pink lippies

I wish I only spent that much! Fortunately I drew the line at the VIB sale at Sephora and have just stuck with MAC. I'm a sucker for pink lipsticks, too! I have more pink and coral lippies than I can count, but I love them so! 

 

 

post #1424 of 2605

 I just ordered Heroine on a whim and its my favorite lippie from this collection :) I'm glad its not sold out so I can get a backup!

You can still search for it on Thursday when it releases in store.

I caved too. You had me at duochrome. I ordered mine on Nordstrom's.

I caved too and got the Pink Popcorn.  I have to admit the name of the lipstick could have influenced me.  And yeah, you had me too at "duochrome."  I got 3 of the creamglass, Reel Sexy and Pink Cult blush. 

 

I hope I don't regret skipping Heroine, but honestly, it just looks fuchsia to me, not purple.  I am holding out for a blue-based purple.  The matte finish has me wanting it, but I skipped because it looks too red based to me.  These new mattes MAC has been making are a dream!

post #1432 of 2605

You can see the duochromeness of Pink Popcorn on Karen's arm swatch! http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/mac-makeup/on-april-5th-mac-gets-reel-sexy-in-an-extra-dimension-with-tres-cheeks-and-it-should-be-a-real-prime-future-fo-sho/

 

Cannot to get my goodies today....hurry up ups!

Do I need Heroine if I have Up the Amp?

If you like purples, yes. Up the Amp and Heroine aren't similar. If anything, Heroine is closer to Violetta. They aren't swatched side by side, but between the two photos, you can see Up the Amp near Heroine here: http://laurenclarkmakeup.blogspot.com/2012/03/mac-so-reel-in-extra-dimension-tres.html

post #1435 of 2605

Tx Knope!!! From what I can tell Heroine looks more of a bluish purple compared to Violetta (which I have two of). I can't wait to get my order.

You're welcome! I love purples and I'm happy to do any enabling/ un-enabling that I can. I'll try to swatch all the purples on my arm and post it once it gets here tomorrow. I'll swatch PP when Nordstrom sends it too since I caved on it. I might as well have a note on my MAC account that says "charge and send all purple lipsticks with first order, as they will be ordered within a day or two anyway."

post #1437 of 2605

Did anyone else just get the email for this collection today? I hate it when I get them too late. FILM is for free express shipping and I already placed my order on sunday night. Now I have to wait until after the long weekend for my stuff.

post #1438 of 2605
