post #1021 of 2603

I'm really doubting any of the collections will come on-line before next week. MAC Canada sent out an email with free shipping until midnight Sunday and they never have free shipping when a new collection goes up.

Here's a swatch of Pink Cult

I can't make a decent decision anymore. MAC!th_wallbash.gif

Ok I have finally settled on what I am getting and not getting anymore

 

Full Of Joy

Lovecloud

Peony Petal

 

I passed on pink tea and went for Pink Cult instead because I love a matte finish and think they are similar enough that I dont need both

post #1024 of 2603

Temptalia's swatches are out: http://www.temptalia.com/mac-tres-cheek-blushes-swatches-sneak-peek

 

My list is solid now: FoJ, MM, Superb, Whisper of Gilt :)

post #1025 of 2603

Previewed today and I think Love Cloud is the only one coming home with me. Nothing else really spoke to me but Love Cloud is gorgeous <3.

They are nothing alike imo. BoaA is rosy red flush on my face, Love Cloud is pink with a very slightly corally undertone

post #1027 of 2603

Tippy and Peony Petal are not too close.For me they are different enough to own both.

I made a comparison a while ago.Maybe this helps a little....

Plus, I'm sure I have lots of similar blushes, so I'm trying to convince myself that I don't NEED PP.

its amazing...

I used to only trust t's swatches, being in aus and ordering from the US make it impossible for me to see items myself first BUT the 2 blushes I decided on by seeing in person actually are the only two I wouldn't have picked if I had.

 

as much as I adore her reviews and pictures I think I will have to be careful in the future as I have a lot of things I don't like (in no way am I blaming her!!) but our skin tones are so so so different

pink tea and foj, i'm nw35 and the other colours either looked powdery on my skin or sunburnt LOL

 

post #1032 of 2603

Here is my list so far, but I will have to check them out in store! I am NC15 :) 

 

Immortal Flower

Lovecloud

Modern Mandarin

Pink Tea

 

I am wondering about Peony Petal, and I already have Sakura from QC and don't use it often so will pass on FoJ 

 

post #1033 of 2603

I rely on her as well for the same reason.... I got my name down at my local counter hoping that I can see the blushes but I have already ordered them already. I plan to swatch the ones I dont have for my blog instead. 

 

Its so hard sometimes to compare online to in person when we get everything so much later.

HIII Princess Sarah!!! =)

 

I'm planning on getting Lovecloud only from this collection plus Pink Cult & WMS from Reel Sexy.

Those sound like choices I would've loved to have made! unfortunately for me, my budget is limited :(

When are you getting them? I cant wait for your reviews+pics!!



 

 

post #1035 of 2603

I've decided i will be on team 5 for this collection. Pink Tea isn't as special as i thought it would be.

post #1036 of 2603

I'm thinking the same. Pink Tea might not be good with my redness. I think I can pull off better the bluer pinks than PT. MM will be the best on me I think.

post #1037 of 2603

I am terrible and ended up with heaps more than I was hoping for and pink cult so I am team 4...

 

I wasnt going to get lovecloud or immortal flower until I saw swatches on here, they are just beautiful!

 

They are getting posted end of the week so I will have them after easter... I am bursting waiting for them!! At least I will get them as they are hitting here in Australia. I am down for a preview in store next week so plan to swatch all of them then if I can

i was the same for t's swatches...i still like seeing them because they are very clear and well lit, but i prefer making my decisions for what to purchase based on in person swatches when possible, and swatches on darker skintones.

 

post #1042 of 2603

Thanks for posting this again! Must have missed it. 

 

Darn, it looks like Peony Petal might be going back on my list

I still (somewhat) rely on T's swatches, mostly because we have similar skin tones and her swatches are always consistent.. But I usually use it as a guide as to which ones I'll try on first. Luckily I can walk up the counter and try them on (provided things aren't sold out yet, heh)

If you have to rely on online swatches, find a blogger who is close to your skintone. While swatches might look beautiful on one person, if your complexion is the opposite of that, it probably won't look like anything close to that on you. I like T's swatches for the clarity of the image and to give me a general idea, but almost all products look completely different on me. It doesn't come as a surprise though give that she is a medium NC and I am a light NW.

post #1046 of 2603

If I waited for bloggers of my skintone(or close to it) to post swatches I'd never be able to buy anything lol. 

 

I kinda laughed a bit seeing FOJ on T, she really packed it on! Lovecloud is looks sooooo pretty but I will try to resist.

I definitely agree Mac-Guy skin tone as well as undertones make a huge difference on how a product will show up. I'm pretty lucky as I'm not cool or warm toned somewhere in the middle but downside to that is usually need to try things on know for sure. Different people see different things with my skin and very few get it right. Back blush talk I think I might have go swatch Peony Petal.

Richelle try to find someone with a similar skin tone and undertones , but I do understand as a WOC it is definitely a challenge for us, to find swatches out there before the launch but that's when having good relationship with MUA's helps.

I think she always tries to pack on the blushes so you can really see their color but sometimes it just looks silly, not try to be mean or rude here cause I really like & appreciate Christine but FoJ looks pretty bad on her as heavy as she applied it

post #1049 of 2603

I can't decide at all! I don't own tons of blushes, maybe 10-15 as compared to my giant lipstick stash. I definitely want Full of Joy as I've been dying for a lavender blush, but I can't decide between Modern Mandarin, LoveCloud, and Immortal Flower.
